The situation in Somalia continues to be extraordinarily bad, but the resignation of Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed from the presidency of Somalia’s de jure but powerless government counts as good news. His hardline stance has, along with incredibly irresponsible behavior from the US and Ethiopia been a significant contributor to Somalia’s problems. I wouldn’t say that this makes a turnaround likely, but it’s certainly more likely than it was before.
