William Fullerton (Former British Ambassador to Somalia)

William Fullerton served as the British Ambassador to Somalia from 1983 to 1987.

His previous posts include; Governor of the Falkand Islands and Ambassador to Morroco, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

Some of his intriguing answers:
“My wife and I were able to travel all over the country from the Kenya border to the one with Djibouti, though for some of the longer journies we had a police escort. We were hospitably and courteously received everywhere. Mogadishu was considered a safer town to walk about in than Nairobi. Now and then the security service, the NSS, made itself felt. Religious fanaticism was not an issue.”
