BACKGROUND: Lt. Gen. Gutti
Lt Gen. Andrew Gutti today takes over command of the military component of the AU Mission in Somalia. The new AMISOM Force Commander will oversee an expanded AMISOM force, which will include Kenyan, Ugandan, Djiboutian and Burundian forces.
He takes over from Maj. Gen. Fred Mugisha during whose tenure AMISOM forces helped drive the Al Qaeda-affiliated terror group, al Shabaab, from fixed positions in Mogadishu, ushering in the longest sustained period of relative peace that the Somali capital has had since the collapse of central government in 1991.
Lt Gen Gutti has served in the Ugandan military for over 26 years, most recently as the Commandant of the Senior Command and Staff College of Uganda.
In February, the UN Security Council raised AMISOM's authorised strength to 17,731 troops and Kenya, Djibouti and Sierra Leone have offered up troops to join the Ugandan and Burundian Contingents currently deployed in Mogadishu and Baidoa. The Kenyan forces are already deployed in the Lower Jubba and Gedo regions of southern Somalia and an advance party of 100 Djiboutian troops has already deployed to Mogadishu.
