Elections this year in Somalia represent "a very unique moment" in the country's political history, according to the senior UN official there.

Michael Keating said the vote, which should take place before the end of the month, will foster a greater sense of "local ownership" as well as more participation by women.

Somalia last held elections in 2012, the first time the country had gone to the polls in decades.

Solaire Munyana asked Mr Keating about the UN's role in the upcoming elections.
