Somalia's president Mohamed Farmajo will be the president for 2 more years after the country's parliament passed a bill to post pone elections. The passing of the bill did not go well with opposition as it says it will not recognize Farmajo's presidency for the extended period. The international community is yet to respond to the developing affairs in Somalia.

Africa has for long has been faced with challenges of leaders whose period in office is over but they would wish to extend their term of leaderships. This has led to political instability which graduates to coups and civil wars to force the leaders out of office.
The leaders achieve this by mutilating the constitutions by removing term limit restrictions. Currently some presidents including Museveni of Uganda are serving their 5th term as presidents despite age limit which was extended by the parliament in 2018 prior to 2020 elections as Museveni had passed 80 years.
