NEW YORK (Sunatimes)- The United Nations will replace its Special envoy to Somalia, Ahmadou Ould Abdallah with a Tanzanian diplomat, sources told Sunatimes on Tuesday.

Top officials at the organisation's headquarter in New York say Ahmadou Ould Abdallah who has worked hard to bring together Somali groups that were hostile to each other has failed to address the latest political dispute in the country and came into line to ought to have replaced him.

"The international community is quite disappointed with the hasty decisions being made by Ahmadou Ould Abdallah among them illegally supporting the decision in which President Shaykh Sharif dismissed Omar Abdirashid which was frankly wrong," said UN officials who refrained from being named.

They also said the envoy is involved in the conflict between the president and the prime minister, saying that Ahmadou Ould Abdallah wants to have a Somali man that closely works with him named Muhammad Abdirazak Abukar to be appointed as a prime minister.

The United Nations has in the past appointed several representatives to Somalia and Ahmadou Ould Abdallah becomes the longest serving representative having visited Mogadishu three times since his appointment.

The envoy's term in office has now come to an end, he is however blamed for the involvement of the election of Sharif Hasan Sheikh Adan who is accused of embezzling government funds as the current speaker of Somali parliament.
