Hassan Ali Khaire, Prime Minister of Somalia, who chaired the cabinet meeting, said the increase is as a result of salary increments made for the Somalia National Army (SNA).

"This is a good beginning, but they deserve us more than that. Following the long SNA reform process, we have now directed our attention and focus to improve the economic quality of our army," Khaire said in a statement issued in Mogadishu on Friday.

He said each soldier received a salary increment of 70 dollars, making his total salary 230 dollars. "This is now the first year. It is a new beginning, but we will keep it up," he added.

The soldiers are currently collaborating with African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) troops to intensify fight against al-Shabab militants across the country. (adm)
