After 17 years, the United Nations flag is flying again in the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

The United Nations Political Office for Somalia on Wednesday officially relocated from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi to Mogadishu. 

The United Nations says the move shows its strong commitment to work with the Somali people and their leaders to build peace, political stability and a hopeful future.

The top United Nations envoy for Somalia Augustine Mahiga has been speaking to Alice Kariuki about the relocation.
