From African Woman of the Year to Somalia's first female president?

Fadumo Dayib makes no bones of the fact that she wants to be Somalia’s first female president.

Like many of her compatriots, she had to leave the country during the civil war and now lives in Finland.

Ms Dayib was recently chosen as the African Woman of the Year at the 2016 African Achievers Awards.

She told BBC Africa’s Hassan Arouni that she has what it takes to fix Somalia.
