Abstract: This study had the main objective to establish the role of foreign intervention in the peace building of Mogadishu, Somalia. The researcher was motivated by the fact that there was little progress in the peace building process in Mogadishu. The study was guided by the following objectives 1) to examine the foreign intervention strategies employed in Mogadishu Somalia 2) to assess the peace building process in Mogadishu, Somalia and 3) to establish a relationship between the foreign intervention and peace building in Mogadishu, Somalia. The study employed descriptive cross-sectional by design which involved both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Using this method, the researcher used a structured questionnaire (close ended) and an interview guide (for qualitative responses). A research population of 300 was identified and a sample size of 171 respondents was computed using the Slovene’s formula. In selecting the respondents the researcher used simple random sampling technique. From the findings it was found that foreign intervention was very low in all aspects except for military intervention which was found to be high. Peace building process was also found to be low. Analysis of relationships suggested that there was a significant relationship between foreign intervention and peace building at a Pearson correlation coefficient of 0.827. Regression analysis computed the R Squared was to be at 0.683. Somalia’s political situation is an ideal example of the hardships and disunity that many African nations have encountered in post colonialist era. Somalia has encountered political instability in the absence of functioning central government, numerous armed groups and militants that control different parts of the country. Ultimately the researcher suggested more civic education, equipping of national security forces, better international relations, foreign electoral oversight and government support to peace talks.
