UN envoy urges Somali businesses to invest in renewable energy

The United Nations envoy to Somalia has called on investors to support and invest in the development of renewable energy sources in the Horn of Africa country.

Michael Keating said “Somalia has a population that is growing and urbanizing very fast. Unfortunately the environment has been badly damaged”. He was speaking during a visit to a thermal-generating plant in Mogadishu.

“Investing in renewable energy sources and trying to bring the cost of energy down in ways that are good for the consumer can protect the environment and bring communities together,” he said.

“In Somalia, we have more than five hours of sunshine, so we need to invest in renewable energy,” he added.

  4. Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
