Brigadier Gen Paul Lokech told a contingent of Ugandan journalists who were on a press tour of Somalia that the development could have consequential negative impact on efforts to stabilise the country.

The United Nations directed AMISOM to start on a gradual reduction of its forces and already 1,000 personnel sent back home.

Plans were underway to cut the same number in October this year, from the current 21,000 peace-keeping fighters in the area.

The United Nations proposal has been endorsed by the African Union peace and security council.

The UN wants AMISOM to eventually handover to the Somali National Army (SNA) by 2021.

During the press briefing at his base in Mogadishu, Lokech explained that they had trained a number of personnel of the SNA as they prepare them to takeover but added that the process takes time.

AMISOM is comprised of Uganda, Kenya, Burundi, Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Sierra Leone.

AMISOM has been helping the Somali government in battling militant group Al-Shabaab since 2007.
