There has been mounting political instability in Djibouti in the last few weeks.
There are rumours that things are not very well at the top leadership.
I am not sure if this visit has anything to do with this ongoing issues. Or something else.
My guess is it’s more related with a couple of geopolitical issues.
A)The GERD. The Egyptians were in Djibouti last month.
B)If a US base in Somaliland is on the cards then with AFRICOM based in Djibouti there could be some prepping before the US visit.
C)The Chinese might be still be trying to woo Somaliland away from Taiwan, where better to do it than in Djibouti where they wont lose faith if rejected.
