Efforts are under way to break the political impasse in Somalia with a UN Security Council delegation travelling to Kenya to meet with Somali officials.

Somalia’s transitional government and interim Parliament are currently at loggerheads, paralysing the country’s administration.

 With both mandates expiring in August, there has been no progress in writing up a new constitution in preparation of elections.

 The Secretary-General's representative, Augustin Mahiga spoke to Jason Nyakundi about this critical visit.
