Burundi and Uganda are offering an additional three thousand troops to reinforce the African Union Mission in Somalia or AMISOM.

That's according to Augustine Mahiga, the Secretary-General's Special Representative for Somalia.

He's currently in Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa where he briefed a special session of the African Union's Peace and Security Council on Somalia.

Mahiga made clear the urgency to occupy the space left by the Al Shabaab insurgents.

He began by discussing with Jocelyne Sambira his upcoming all-inclusive meeting with Somali stakeholders in Mogadishu.
