"I know it will be costly, but we need to exercise our patience until we crash them" he stated.

In earlier statement the president condemned the deadly attacks in the capital city, Mogadishu, linked to the Islamist armed group Al-Shabaab, and reiterated his government’s commitment to quell the terrorist group.
