On Thursday, President Uhuru Kenyatta attended Mr Sheikh's inauguration in Mogadishu, where, among other things, they spoke with the newly appointed head of state of Somalia, Miraa.
Agricultural science cs Peter Munya has expressed gratitude to President Obama for the diplomatic negotiations he has been conducting. The cashcrop fire wreaked havoc on Miraa farmers and the Mount Kenya East economy.
Munya stated that the discussions were concluded and that all that was left was to sign the agreement in a deal that will see Somalia export fish and other commodities to Kenya. Munya emphasized the importance of the Somali market, claiming that it was the most profitable and acted as a launching pad for freight transit to the Horn of Africa and the Middle East.
The news has been received enthusiastically by meru merchants and other Somalis living in Kenya, who now anticipate a brighter future ahead. The economy of Mount Kenya East had been severely harmed, but officials now expect it will recover with the lifting of the two-year-old ban.
Miraa will be shipped again in two weeks, according to CS Munya through the airport of Isiolo direct to Mogadishu.
