Berbera International Airport - the newly refurbished with new 4km runway, will be opened later in the year. Projects that will be turning sod in 2020 1. Hargeisa - Burco Road via Oodweine, funded by African Development Bank and Somaliland Government, this 180km hinterland road will cut travel time between Hargeisa and Burco by 1/2. The current road via Berbera is total length 300km. The new road via Oodweine will be 180km. Travellers will be saving over 100km of fuel expense and a lot of time. This road will also help cut time to far Eastern regions i.e. time to reach Ceerigaabo will be further cut. 2. Djibouti - Jigjiga Road via Borama, also Funded by Africa Development Bank, this is 250km Road that will link Djibouti and Jigjiga passing through Borama. 3. Drill babe Drill - The first Oil well of many will get drilled this year. 4. Ceerigaabo - Mait Road - a 30km steep downhill/uphill road that winds down through Daallo Mountains and crosses Tabca Pass. This road will cut travel time to and from coastal communities. 5. Mait Fishing Port - A port that will serve as an economic hub for Sanaag regions to tab into the rich fishing seas on its shore.

    Galbeedi, Suldaanka, iyo Xerta kale, Markaan Xamar joogey ee aan jaamacadda lafoole ku jirey ayaan dharka waxaan ka meydhan jirey nin beesha "Unukaa-leh-goofley-Abgaal-ah", oo dharka gacanta ku meydhi jirey. Gaar ahaan ardeyda lafoole ku jirtey oo jamaacadda agteeda ayuu ku lahaa doobi lacag uu ka qaadan jirey oo dharka ayuu kuu meydhi jirey halkaas, dabadeedna wuu feerayn jirey, sida surwaaladda iyo shaadhadhka. Markaas kuwayaga reer waqooyiga ah ee jaamacadda lafoole ku jirey ayuu lacag ka urursan jirey oo ka fara-qabsan jirey, ileyn dadka kale ee magaaladda Xamar deganaa ee Jaamacadda ku jirey ee ay guryahooduna ay ku yaaleen magaaladda, dharkooda halkaas ayey ku soo meydhan jireene. Maalin maal-maha ka mid ah ayaan ugu imid "doobigisii" aniga oo dhar badan jiidaya si aan u idhaahdo dharkan ii maydh oo dabadeedna ii feeree, qiimo fiicana iigu samee, mar hadaan ahay iskaabulo (i.e, soolane) jaamacad ku jira. Markaas ayaan arkey isaga oo "shirib" ku heeleynaya oo shaqada iyo dharka uu meydhayey ku wada heeladaas. Markaas ayaan ku idhi waa maxay waxan aad akhrineyso ee aad ku dhawaaqeyso.

Dabadeedna waxa aan ku idhi ii macnee oo ii sheeg naxwaxa iyo waxa loola jeedo. Markaasu ayuu yidhi, Xamar dowlad baa ka dhisan (oo markaas waxa ay ku beegan tahay badhtamihii 1980s) oo xisaab iyo kala bax sharci ayaa yaala. Xaradheera-na wixii yidhi waa meel xoog lagu kala baxo. Markaas ayaan idhi yaa Xaradheere dega, reero ahaan. Dabadeedna wuxuu yidhi, "unuka iyo ILjeex" aa daga. Taas "midhaha" ah ee "shiribkiisii" ku jirey ee ahaa: "Xamar-na Xisaab, Xaradheera-na Xoog" ayaan soo xusuustaa markasta oo aan arko beesha Iljeex (i.e., HG) iyo ciyaartooda siyaasadeed ee aan dhamaadka laheyn.

Maadaama Kuwait aheyd dal qanni ah oo si dhakhso ah oo fudud Saddam Xuseen ku qabsadey oo uu dhacay sanadkii 1990 bishiisii August. Markaas nimankan Iljeexda ee Galmudug degga, shaadhkaaga ka ilaasho, dowlad aad u dhisto hakuu dambeyse.

    Khayre has failed. Even a child knows that this Sufi outlaw was hungry for power. He knew his rule was over if elections took place in Galmudug. Farmaajo is also pushing a well known " Budhcad Badeed" named Qoor Qoor as the future leader. The best option is for Khayre and company to swallow their pride, accept defeat and keep Xaaf to rule until a real reconciliation takes place in Galmudug. If he keep insisting on his failed policy, Khayre will create three presidents within the three main sub clans of GAlmudug. Nin Saaxiibkay ah ayaa yidhi isagoo kaftamaya, " Reer Dayniile ayaa maamul HG u Samaynaya waxay ahayd riyo beena".

    This has become legend or is so taken for truth from so much repetition. Nothing is further from Truth. Next to Djibouti Somaliland is actually the most Somali when it comes to Ethiopia. So much false information we carry. Example: USC folks are considered most anti-Ethiopia. I always laugh when I hear almost all people peddling this lie. Among the rebel organizations USC was so close to Mengistu, Ethiopia paid its own money, sent two officials to bring Aidiid from India to lead USC. The only purpose was to counter balance against Somaliland, since SSDF was suspect as Mengistu had information of their contacts with WSLF/ONLF and Tigray. Who called Ethiopia after 91 to Somalia. The person was General Morgan the group take your pick. Ethiopia did not vanguish Aidiid from SW since they were Mengistu people, vanguished them after they and their opponents burned food storage. That was the incident as to why Ethiopia evicted Aidiid and the other groups (no fighting left themselves). What did the warlords in Mugadishu do when ICU started. They set up anti-terrorist alliance. Who did they call first. Ethiopia. Meles was never close with Somaliland other than business and education for Somalilanders in Ethiopia. ONLF: Djibouti, Somaliland and Puntland told ONLF that they cannot use as base to fight against Ethiopia. Somaliland gave them 6 months. Djibouti and Puntland wanted ONLF to stop using them as base immediately. Anyone can confirm this with ONLF leadership of the time. etc.. The truth or facts show the opposite of the false belief most people have.

    Don't worry about that. For it will not happen, as I said it, in a millions of years. Or president Bihi will literally not leave the compound of Egal International airport back to his presidential palace if he were to welcome an opportunistic creature like Mr Farmaajo into Hargeisa. And in fact, Mr Bihi will be force to seek a seat within the same freaking plane that did brought Mr Abby Ahmed and Mr Farmaajo into Hargeisa, so that he shall see to it to go with them from Hargeisa to wherever they came from originally. That is how serious this issue is to the average Somalilander in the streets of Somaliland. And President Bihi is fully and acutely cognizant of that basic fundamental truth in-terms of what his people actually think of this Faqash-boy Farmaajo.

    Another LIE from the forum's Jin-whisperer Facts can never be wished (or deleted) away. Your minority union of USP garnered only a miserable 16.4% in the elections of Somaliland Protectorate! They were a minority who could not force the majority group of pretty much anything: In fact, the single most prominent politician from USP, who was from LA and not Awdal, was the one who suggested to halt the union with ex-Somalia Italiana, to which the majority group resolutely dismissed with the famous line: "Laa yaa Garaad!". Effectively taking you into the union against your will. You have no history there to be proud of.

    This man from Ansalooti, Mogadishu, doesn't know culture or history. THere is no such thing as Reer Woqoyi in terms of the last Somali civil war. I have no problem If Farmaajo want to apologize on behalf of the Gedo community. I tried to avoid this topic because thousands of innocent Somalis had been killed during the civil war either from the Somali state or the rebels. And unless you walked with someone else's shoes, you can not present fairly the extend of these crimes. LIke most rebels of that era SNM, USC and others were angry and tribal to the core. And in our tradition, if you became a victim of an angry tribal mob, may Allah have a mercy on you. Wherever they had an opportunity to kill they never hesitated. When the war broke in 1988 and they encountered the early defeat , they SNM massacred and killed anyone who belonged the wrong tribe. Shop keepers, public servants and others were murdered in daylight. I am always amazed by those who frame the issue like the Somali state being the one who waged the war and invaded cities. Ma dawlada Soomaaliyeed baa ku duushay Hargeisa, mise SNM oo koontaraad ay dalka ku duminayso ka soo qaadatay Mengistu ayaa dalka ku soo duushay? It was the angry Somali rebels who were the aggressors on behalf of foreign government. The Somali state was defending the territorial integrity of the country. What would any government do , if a tribal movement armed by a historical enemy occupies the second largest city in a suicide mission? you defend it with any means necessary. When Mohamed I Cigal was selected by elders in Borama, former president C/raxman Tuur (AHN) and his supporters refused to accept and opposed his administration. Since Egal considered himself as a government, he waged a war to bring back the rebels by any means necessary. He bombed Burco city with altelary and the people have to abandon the city and relocate to new place called Yiroowe. Some estimate up to 5000 people being killed in a two year war. After he defeated the rebels by the barrel of the gun, he then started a reconciliation. Knowledgeable people will tell you that more people had died in Burco than the the earlier war of 1988. In fact, most of the city was destroyed after 1991. Egal even bombed Hargeisa airport to dislodge from South Hargeisa clans (Suldaanka and company) in 1996. If Egal who was controlling Hargeisa, Berbera and Borama could bomb everyone for submission to preserve his non existent government, certainly the Somali state has every right to fight the rebels contracted by Mengistu of Ethiopia. Why not Awdal or someone try to day to separate?. The SNM Habro will use their army to destroy Borama and masacre the civilian just like they did in 1991. Maasajidka Ciyaarta ka Daaya. Who is going to give apology to the hundreds of thousands of Somalis who died because of the actions of these hungry and angry rebels rented by Ethiopia? Who will give apology to the 300,000 Somalis who died with starvation in the south due to the tribal war waged between the D block and USC? Who will give appology to the thousands perished in high seas to esxape the misery of the tribal governments. Walaahi dalagii ay dadka koonfur galbeed beerteen ayey godadkii kala baxeen qolyihii is eryenayey ee D & H, weliba waxii ay arkeena way dhaceen . Illaa markii dambe gaajo iyo colaad loo dhintay. Unlike the corrupt tribal rebels of Somalia and their supporters who travel between Addis,, Yemen, London and Nairobi, the typical Somali rural and villager between the rivers had nowhere to run. They live of the land. They did not had passport or another country to travel, that is why they dies in hundreds of thousands, yet no one is talking about them. Waxay dhib iyo hallaag jabhadu noo geysteen oo dalkii naga dumiyeen ayaa weliba iyaga raali galin la siinayaa. Aan ooye Albaabka ii xidha. This opportunist Farmaajo and the few stooges who are accompany him do not have the capacity , temperament or even the communicative skills to explain or right the wrongs of the civil war. We are the so called Reer Woqoyi and he doesn't speak for us. If the Gedo community want to apologize to the SNM community, by all means go ahead, but do not generalize us with those who have grievances with the Somali state of yesterday. Certainly we have other grievances like under development and lack of roads in our region since most of the state development of Somalia in the Kacaan era were invested between the two rivers and Benaadir and Hargeisa/Berbera corridor. We have nothing against the Somali state and we are willing to take our space among the free Somalis under the sun. Muuse Biixi who has his own documented crimes to answer might have persuaded Farmaajo to pronounce this useless apology, but this move will not even soften the clan at this stage. If you are serious about a real reconciliation of the crimes of the Somali civil war, then appoint a truth commission where everyone has to confess and tell their story. Yet, no matter how loud microphone the SNM habro use to amplify their cases and try to bury their own crimes, the truth will not disappear. This is not 1945, were those who were present are dying. Those who were present when the crimes of SNM in the north and USC in the south and MOgadishu were committed are live and kicking. WE even have cases against Muuse Biixi himself with witnesses ready to testify in a court. Farmaajo might try to fool people and those he is trying to get their votes, but he will not fool us , because we know history and culture. It was us the USP unionists who forced the union in 1960, and it looks that it is up to us to bring that union again despite the current braggadocio and false invincibility of the SNM boys. History repeats itself.

    Farmaajo had a good week. Presenting himself as a simple man who understand situation gives him advantage. Unlikely other governments, his government got few things right. They hired some good people, specially Bayle and Omar knows what they are doing. The reality is both Farmaajo and Khayre lived civilized countries and understand the game compare to others.

    This is unacceptable. It shows to the Somali officer his incapacity to command soldiers. ASking foreign powers to fight Al-shabaab and their huge network is one thing, but to use these forces against Somali regional adversaries is illegal and dishonorable for most Somalis. Now our country is becoming a football between the proxy forces of Kenya and Ethiopia. We opposed when Hassan Sheikh asked help from TPLF and went Jigjiga, and we oppose this disgraceful action by Farmaajo.

    Fabrication of fake photos, falsification of historic records, out right fraudulent manufacturing of non existent records. These are the skills that they have mastered during the 21 years of Afwayne's rule. Nothing else to show for. It is little wonder that the websites they own are the ones with the most fake and fabricated stories or pictures found. With regards to Somaliland, it is always honesty & facts that wins the day. Duriyadda Sheekhu has 99 problems but fake, fabrication or falsehood are non of it. What you see is all you get. Our modus-operandi is captured in the Silsiladda Xaydha; As you know Xaydha is a no-no for men of honour to eat. The story goes, a couple of friends embarked on a journey and organised their supplies for the travels. They went to the local market and purchased what they thought was Subag-Sixin/Codcod in a jar. Unbeknown to the men what was in the jars, they started their journey. When it reached time to rest and eat something, they found out what they purchased was actually Xaydh (Ghee) and not Sixin/Codcod. Affraid the story about Xaydha will surely find its way to the town, they will forever be cursed as the men who ate a jar full of Xaydh. The men instead pre-empt a story of themselves and started composing poems making fun of each other's situation. The gist of the story is that, the IQ clan fact checks themselves and it is known to the world. So by the time it reaches others it is more or less "war la hayaa xiiso ma leh'. Hayin iyo markaad subag heshaan, Hawd kusoo mariyey Ee aad laba gadiid ka hirqataad, honono’aysaaye Hareeraha ka leefkii markay, gacantu haarowdey Waatay fartii hilib dalqaha, sii harraatidaye Nin wixii hungurigiisa maray, hiifay waa qadafe Hareer baabu isaga weeciyaa, waxan habboonayne Haddii uu hogseeg yahay, maxaad uga hakoon weydey?

    That requires balls to do such thing in any inch of Somaliland's territories. And such balls is what your teeming Ilma-Gumeed lack in a distinct manner. After all creating things of the sort you mentioned required an act on the ground. Not so much of hot air stupidity about SSC fiefdom, or about some alleged Maakhir State encompassing all of Sanaag region, or about Khaatumo's State wet-dream, which is what some of you were known to be having on daily basis. None of that stuff cut it back home, mate. However, back home things of this sort in which you are blathering on with it in here requires balls and balls alone, I am afraid. And you lot are only good enough (and the likes of our Galbeedi comes to mind as well) to waffle on in the four-square confines of this joint call SOL and in the free air of the internet with a bile of odious trite stuff.

Instead of wasting your time in an endless trolling tactics round here in this joint call SOL. Got that now, yea Ina-Gummeed?

    Now To a Brief Discursive Details. Those of you who are of young age may not know much of Somali history (or may not even care that much of it). But the concept of "Faqash Ideology" you keep on hearing from the likes of me intoning on about it doesn't actually denote a "clan name". But rather it's a "political concept" that indeed defines a "State's power ideology". What I mean by that is that if you take the example of Syria, it has a similar "Faqash Ideology" in action in which you will able to observe there. It's call a pure form of "Patrimonial State Ideology", which says a leader (or basically the dictator) and his immediate family has the uncontested right to own the freaking country. And beyond that he has the right to hire a "teeming loyal foot-soldiers" in-order to upheld his dictatorship through his clan, as the case was with Gen. Afweyne. Or he will have the right to raise his "enforcing army" through his particular religious sect, as the case was (and still is) with Assad's dictatorship with their Syria's version "Faqash Ideology" being seen in action there. Which is, as I said it a State's power ideology that will actually have no "restraining guardrail", or even social remorse from the very notion of destroying a whole nation if that nation somehow refuses to be "owned" like so much of a "glorified chattel" or as a "lucrative property" by a single dictator and his family, as the case can be seen from what has happened, rather tragically, to that much abused State of Arab Republic of Syria. Understand that and you will finally see how wider the notion of "Faqash Ideology" could literally encompass across different nations and across time. Since, it has many guises, names, and it's easily applicable (as a organizing principle) to nations as diverse as that of Iraq under Saddam, Libya under Qaddafi, Syria under Al-Assad family, and finally, Somalia under Gen. Afweyne. Moreover I suspect we may see Djibouti go down that route. And by that I mean that although up to now Mr IOG seems to have been clever enough to "hide" the ugly side of seeing a whole nation call Djibouti been "tailor-made" to be "owned in perpetuity" as a "property" by a single family (like Syria under Assad's family) which is what Djibouti really is gearing up to be with lots of "distracting facade"to which to hide that "truth", but at the moment that "point of clarity" for Djibouti is not now yet at hand. However that moment will come when we see who Mr IOG is likely to have "chosen" to be his successor (after he had groomed him most likely) so that he wishes for him to take over from him. Hence at that moment his "true color" of believing a Djiboutian's version of "Faqash Ideology" will manifest itself openly before the public of that nation. Particularly, if he, like the late Mr Al-Assad Senior, decides that his own his blood (mostly his son) should start "owning" Djibouti as a country and as a nation after he passes away. Consequently, at that point we will see the true implication of what is in store for Djibouti. And it will be a truly horrendous political prospect, really, in any which way you dice it. So in a nutshell "Faqash Ideology" is actually an international state ideology (at least in-terms of its conceptual frame-work of understanding what it should entail for the whole nation in which such ideology may have been applied to it). It has been in existence ever since man learned how to organize himself into communities and political polities, and then proceeded to ascertain how power of that duly formed community should be exercise. Who should do or carry out those "acts of exercising power". And on what term he should do it at the behest of the whole "demos". This State's ideology had assumed many bewildering guises. It was observed through many historical manifestations. It exist even under Communism's dictatorship, as the case of three (3) generations of North Korean's Kim's family dictatorship can be made "akin" to a pure form of "Faqash Ideology" in action. Whilst accepting that their version of this State's ideology is likely to be assuming a "guise" that makes a sense to the North Korean's themselves as they come under the cosh of that age-old ideology. It has always have many "cultural underpinnings" in which ever country that this ideology was tried on will readily recognized it. Which in turn gives vim and strength during its flowering period. And by that I mean just like Gen. Afweyne had songs, plays and cultural outputs made out specifically for him, and indeed the cultural landscape of the nation was required to "glorify" him and his "Faqash Ideology", so does Al-Assad has a similar things going on for him out there in Syria. And so does Kim's family out there in North Korea, who have a similar or a replica version of the same "cultural glorification" of his "Faqash Ideology", even if it comes through with the age-old Korean's cultural artifacts. But at the heart of it it's State Ideology that treats the common public-wheel as a property of the dictator and of his family alone. Not as the property of the people of that nation owning their nation. Not even a political party owning a nation (like the manner CCP of the PRC believe in when it comes to its responsibility to Chinese State). No, on contrary, this version of "pure form of patrimonial State ideology" actually hold that the State, the nation, the people, and everything else that is within it, belongs to the dictator and to his family. And to boot, that dictator, should have the "uncontested right" to perpetuate that "lucrative state of affairs" for his family into generations to come. Hence that was what was in stored as a "historical prospect" for the Somalis in Somalia under Gen. Afweyne. And it was indeed waiting for Somalia, if, for some flukely reason or other, he were to have been rather successful in subduing and crashing, completely, his political opponents throughout Somalia by sheer force alone. Like present-day Al-Assad family have done it to Syria, rather tragically. In one brief sentence, you can argue reasonably, that, "Faqash", as a "political ideology" means a State that is nothing but a "Patrimonial kleptocracy" centered on the conceit of a self-serving dictator and his family alone, with a "complete monopoly of violence" at his disposal as he sees fit. It was the case of Saddam's Iraq. It was the case of Qaddafi's Libya. It is still the case with Al-Assad's Syria. And finally, it was intended to be case with Gen. Afwyne's Somalia. Particularly if he were to have been rather victorious against his opponents. Which fortunately for Somalis, he didn't succeeded in establishing such a long-lasting and deleterious "ideologically-motivated" political State over the rest of the Somali peninsula.

Especially when the warlords go for weekends to Dubai and he has to go to Qatar. If he had a little spine, he would have been going every week to Ankara instead of Asmara. Qatar and Turkish know this already. Ask yourself a simple question. Ethiopia is now even at this shakey times a multiple more powerful than Somalia and a multiple more influential. Yet Ethiopia could not handle and could not manage to continue realtions with its second investor after China, that is Turkey. How could Farmaajo "play" Turkey/Qatar vs. UAE/Saudi/Egypt Even Sudan could not manage being very close to Turkey and dependent on Saudis. Even sending soldiers to Yemen did not save Bashir. His visit to Damascus was the last straw. The new ruler now already met Netanyahu and Sudan might establish relations with Israel to achieve what Arabs could not. Get off list of terror sponsoring countries. I was amused when most Somali expected Farmaajo to start war against UAE during the signing of the Berbera deal. Some SOLers were emotional wreck over it. Farmaajo just got rid of it very quickly. The security council at UN or IGAD, or AU or Arab League have all been forgotten now. We Horn people are that simpltons no red line no principle just raw emotions. The most disappointing part is when we have lessons for free from other Somalis. How do Djibouti, Somaliland, Puntland and Kililka survived without going to war for almost a generation? How come ONLF now made peace and friendship with Djibouti, Somaliland and Puntland after all the recriminations of the 2000s? These should have been free education. How could Somaliland maintained for 20 years simply business relations with both Meles and Ghelleh even thought Somaliland knew from the get go that these two men would be the last 2 leaders on earth that will give formal recognition to Somaliland?

    They are in their own echo chambers. The only people praising Farmajo are his own paid for twitter bots. Hence why he is shocked every time he interacts with normal Somalis

    Saalax, madaxweynaha Soomaaliya hadda ka hor wuu tagay gobolka Waqooyi Galbeed, siiba Hargeysa as a prime minister in 2011. Diyaaradda Daallo ayuu saarnaa, rakaabka shacabka ayuuna la saarnaa. Transit ayuu ku ahaa Hargeysa saacad. Waliba gudaha ayuu galay. Secessionists marqaankooda iskaga fadhiyeen, waxee ka warqabeen ma jirin. Eniwey, Muuse Muqayil last time (only time invited then) orod ayuu Adisababa kaga soo noqday markii lagu qasbay in madaxweynahiisa ee Soomaaliya Hargeysa ku soo dhaweeyo. Waa ka soo fikiraa ayuu ku soo marmarsiyooday, Xabashada warkooda si toos uma diidi karee. I guess markaan xoog Xabashada ugu sheegeen. Intee ka baxaa meel Alle ayee ku noqotay Muuse Marqaanweyne.

    As for the rest of Aw-beenaale's braying calaacal.. we know why he is experiencing such anger with Farmajo's statement: It directly incriminates his criminal SDA militia who chose to become instruments of AFweyne's campaign of genocide against the north. We have not forgotten how wares looted from Hargeisa were sold in broad daylight on the streets of Borama by the marauding SDA bandits, later to be defeated and made to kiss the ring by the glorious SNM mujahids: Now all of you who wish to discuss these issues line up, go and support Galbeedi-the-Jinn-Whisperer with all your intellectual might, lets have a debate about it instead of timidly deleting posts with relevant and well sourced information. Adkeysta dee

    Do you remember when the drunkard, Somalia's Foreign Minister, went on TV with this? Dalka Gini oo wax xidhiidh ah la lahayn ayuu sheegay inay xidhiidhkii u jareen. Khamradu kolka aad iska badisid wax walba waa kaa suurowdaa. Maanta bal xiniinyo ha u yeesheen inay Addis Abeba xidhiidhka u jaraan? kkkk

    The western world’s fascination with Abyssinia has always destabilized politics in the Horn. However, with the background of west political power declining and its societies secularizing, and above all the rise of other world powers. Karma has finally hit our Xabashi brothers. The shift is permanent and low-landers ethnicities of Afar, Somali and Oromo and others will settle score with the highlanders specifically with the Amhara for the century-long abusive policies funded by Western powers. The biblical name (Ethiopia) that Haile Selassie chose for this artificially created nation and established by the West, as a way to solidify Abyssinia’s Christian heritage and bond with the West, this name will be once again only used in a biblical context as Ethiopia will not exist. The country will balkanize and hopefully this will usher a new era of coexistence among different ethnicities in the Horn.

    Taiwan is a highly developed country which Somaliland can learn a thing or two from. Specially in its industrialisation. Aside from Scholarships and access to Doctors from Taiwan, Somaliland is also interested in bringing Taiwanese manufacturers to open shop in Berbera Free Zone. So the plans are big. Hopefully it will all workout.

    Lool I take it that you weren't wearing your tightly fitting blue diric when you landed in hargeisa? Let me know next time you want to go there and see to it to bring the blue diric with you, and then we shall see how you will you enjoy the "bitter lemon" of Mandhera prison for a few months before you get shipped back with one way ticket to the cold Alberta of Canada.

    This is a global issue. From India to South Africa. The root cause are sexual frustration and sickness in the head. I commend on talking about this issue, exposing the Koofiyad-Bacle (Clan elders) who profit from it. The Gov't needs to inact the right laws banning of dealing this issue through the Xeer system. The perpetrators need to face the music.

    It is not only Cooper or Pete, it is actually the majority of whitemen who work in the humanitarian sector be it with UN or EU or US itself. That classify themselves as homosexual. I wonder why you would assume there are no homosexuals working Mogadishu? One of the key characteristics of Somalilanders is that, nothing is hidden. What you see is what you get. And it is also the root reason why Somaliland is safe and there are no terrorism or piracy or human traffickers. If there is a single incident of any sort, it is reported and known to everybody. There is no safe heaven. Back in 2018 there was a law passed by the Parliament which included the word 'Gender'. It was caught by good Samaritans that this word 'gender/jinsi' is a word preferred by homosexuals as it also includes their orientation. The word was changed to 'Sex/Lab/Dhedig". In order to remove any hidden meaning. In Mogadishu,, even your passport has the word 'gender' found in it. You guys are in for a long ride.

    Don't worry about these Somalilanders and their khat-inducing-hallucinations who think they are superman. Ignore them and they will flee back into the bush... naked.

    These are gangsters and street criminals appointed as governors. THis culture of insulting Allah, the Prophet and Islam is well known in certain regions of Somaliland. Wallahi as a young man I was shocked how normal this culture was in Hargeisa and Djibouti. in late eighties. You could hardly see these things in southern Somalia.

    Mudane Oodweyne waan u jeedaa in uu udaygani xanuun hayya dartii oo hinaase iyo ciil sababay kula hor dhacay kamaradda. Iska daa ha iska yara nafisee. This kind of interview is a sort of psychological counselling for the likes of him and I think the great people of Somaliland are charitable enough to allow him a bit of treatment for his debilitating mental condition.

    It looks like the Berbera's tax-free policy toward Puntland Businesses, has practically closed down Bosaso Port. At this time of the year, it is usually the open season "Bad Furan" and is supposedly the busiest time for Bosaso Port. But there is next to zero activity, according to longtime resident of Bosaso city. Probably no businessman wants to be left behind, they moved to Berbera.

    hmmm. xooluhu shugux shugux kama ilbaxdo. All it takes is a $500 dollars. Few dollars for Logo design, few dollars for new suit and some more dollars to get so called journalists to come to your hotel. And you have Saalaxo running with it like he found his new Daddy.

    Gal-mudug La mid ma'ahan gobolada kale sida bay iyo bakool oo diinta loo raadsan jiray iyo masagada. Dhaqan ahaan gal-mudug waa dad dhib badan, axdigana ma oofiyaan. Nabada, colaaday ka jecel yihiin. Xalaashana xaarayntay ka jecelyihiin Waa intooda badan dadka laysma raaciyo aqlabiyadda ama ilaa man raximalaah. Ilmaha markii loo xiiro waxaa lagu dhahaa orodoo facaa iskasoo celi asagoon ilko lahayn. Labaatan jir mudug ku dhashay ilaahay uma xil qarin, macnaheedu waa inuu ama dilaa noqdaa ama isaga tagaa gobolka. Tusaale waxaa kuugu filan dadka wax loo qaybinayo oo loo dadaalayo waa hal jufo oo sadex jufo usii kala baxday Waxa federaalka oo aysan sharuudihiisii buuxin uga mid noqdeen gobol iyo rubuc si shartooda looga nabad galo. Mid waxay leedahay madaxweynaha. Midna waxay leedahay caasumadii dhaqaalaha ugu badan soo galayay. Midna waxay leedahay gurigii baarlamaanka oo lagu talinayay Waxaa loogu daray suufiyadii oo sadbursi iyo mixnad kale ah. Maxaa soo haray?.... Waxba. Juhdiga intaa le'eg waxa lagu bixinayo waa hal beel ah oo aan timo waligood usoo bixin. Soo kama fiicnayn juhdiga intaa la'eg, in dawladu geliso geella Australia lagu laynayo.
