A number of officials from Somalia's National Olympic Committee (NOC) have visited the construction site of the organisation's future headquarters in Mogadishu, Somalia's Risaala Media Corporation reported Thursday (August 15th).

"Since the foundation of Somali National Olympic Committee half a century ago we used rented compounds, but this will be the first Somali NOC-owned centre -- we are very grateful to the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic solidarity and Somalia's Civil Service Development Ministry for helping the implementation of this historic compound," NOC Secretary General Duran Ahmed Farah said during the visit.

Farah said the first stage of construction will be completed on August 28th, after which the second stage will begin.
