    The political culture in Somaliland is an egalitarian one. Specially Beesha Dhexe. So for everyone from the unknown to the well known to have equal say and communicate their personal feelings or believes, it is a welcomed sign that the people are moving forward. This is why in Somaliland almost everything is openly discussed and nothing is hidden. The gov't is held to account, the ministers coming on TV explaining their side of the story. You will never see this type of open discussions of gov't ministers and opposition party engaging in lively political discourse about the goings on, anywhere else in the Somali regions. We know Mogadishu Khaire's moratorium on media engagement by his cabinet. We know Cheeseman, after almost 3 years, has never held an open questions interview. The same goes for Puntland where each Hagbad inheritor takes the enclave on a personal ride with no questions asked. So, all these public engagement, is music to my ears that the people are awake and taking part and shaping their future. What other Somalis take for granted, in Somaliland we don't. If we think the gov't is not on the right path, we tell it like it is without mincing words. And not wait until end of the tenor and call it 'what a bad leadersip it was' like Puntlanders do every 4years. Rather, you have to oppose what is wrong and support what is right every single day.

    Projects that will be finalised This year. 1. Burco - Ceerigaabo Road - 300 km of fully locally funded paved road will be finished in September 2020. This road has already cut the travel time between Burco and Ceerigaabo by half. People now can have their breakfast in Hargeisa and have lunch in Ceerigaabo. A tremendous improvement. 2. Berbera corridor Road - 200km modern highway that will connect Berbera to the trading town of Togwachale will be completed by October this year. 3. Berbera Port expansion - the new 400m Berbera Port Container Terminal will be completed by October this year 4. 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.

    Somaliland has the best case in africa legally really. It's just that lack of economic interest from western powers is the problem. But it has shown the world that Somaliland is here to stay and that no one in Somalia can change that. Deep inside most of the koonfurians know this to the 2 countries. Have been to seperate countries for almost 3 decades this will surpass the short lived union of 20 years. In the later half of afweyne reign somaliland was at war with Somalia. In the end runtay tegeysa.

    I love it when Somaliland is making the rest of us look like either we do not know the seriousness of the situation or we have no clue what to do where to start. We can't even brag about herd immunity since we are cowards. May Allah (swt) help the poor nomad. As for Somaliland, thank you for making the Somali part of the world.

    "Progress" is still on after a year of nothingness. Meantime, the reality and fact is: However, in marqaan marfishes from Muuse Muqayil and his little trolls: 1991 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1992 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1993 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1994 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1995 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1996 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1997 will certainly be a very interesting year. 1998 will certainly be a very interesting year. ..... And more than 20 years later, still: 2020 will certainly be a very interesting year. 2021 will certainly be a very interesting year.

    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".

    The cutting and biting "irony" of seeing a man who his teeming kith and kin from Bay and Bakool regions who were known throughout the Somali peninsula as the hapless denizens of the "street-beggars" sort, talking about other folks being "rubbish" (or being acquainted with rubbish), is really a mighty sight to behold, really. After all, the "very definition" of "street begging" is someone who is very familiar with, or at least is comfortable with the "contemptible idea" of "making a living" (by way of seeking alms) from any "detritus-strewn-streets", or from any "rubbish-piled alleyways" of any city the world over in which you can think of it. Hence, as Somalis says: "Nin waliba wuxuu yahay ayuu ku moodaa". Taasna intaas ayaan ka odhanayaa. As for others "Neo-Kacaanist" (or as I like to call them, the old "defeated lot" of the Somali peninsula) are concern. In particularly like this Mr Culey chap and the other fellow by the name of Mr Ciyaar-jecel, all one can say to them is that it's pity that is all they are capable of doing it in here. Which in essence is very similar to what the then legendary Mr Salaan Carabey once said it to a particular Ina-Gumeed sort of a fellow of their kind of ilk. And what he said was: "......Hadaad hiil hinaastey aadse itaal u weydey, ma afkaad ku ciil-bixi, ileyn cidlaad ka hanjabeysaaye....." *************** I see that Ina-Gumeed sniffling ninny like you is still at it in waffling with odious gibberish at their worse of it around in here of SOL. Pity really. Given that you have not much improved with time. Well, as they say, a "cowardly low-born non-entities" like you are not only a "dime-dozen" in the Somali peninsula. But they are "destined" to be so that way. Hence, I shan't expect to see much better fist of an effort from the likes of you from here on out, I am afraid. So, carry on kiddo. ************ Suldaanka And Barwaaqo, Ilmaadeerayaal, salaan-sare. Midda kale sidaad aragteen hadhaagii f-aqashta ayaa ciil iyo cadho heysa darteed isku qarinaya qiiq iyo hadal tiris ay isleeyihiin ceebta heysata saaqidkii siyaasadda Soomaaliya ee Ina-Farmaajo, dadka reer-Muqdishu kaga sii jeediya. Markaas, waa naxli hadlayaan.

    In all seriousness, the tragedy of Somalis is our small-mindedness. Men like Axmed Gurey, Sayidka, Sheikh Barsane and Nasiib Buundo fought in the name of Islam or in the name of their Somalis and fought against common. And history shows and no one Maryooley can deny, the armies they commanded hail from all Somalis. We can question their methods but their goals were clear. Their history is Somali history!

    Suldaanka, There was never any doubt as to who runs - and I mean in the sense of running it on a day to day basis - the political home's regions of the "Gudhuu-Eeelaay" of Somalia, which is what these two regions of Bay and Bakool are. It was the case since 1997. And is still the case, as was proven openly by the fact that the likes of Mr. Lafta-Gareen was actually installed there, in Baydhabo, with the blood of his own kin and kith being shed copiously for him by these same occupying Ethiopians. Just so that he can be imposed there, like so much of a "cheap political puppet" that was sent there from Villa Somalia, which is what he is, at the end of the day. However, the "bigger picture" here is that Somalia which is claiming to be a "sovereign nation" has this glaring "ugly sight" to contend with, which is the notion of being "dictated" to by her neighbor. And, in fact, this particular neighbor, namely, Ethiopia, can tell her as to who would have any "access" to some regions of its own country, in which she, as a neighbor, maybe loitering in it, brazenly, as she is in these two concerned regions. It's almost like the sad picture of seeing a "retained woman" who keeps on putting on some bogus hot-airs about herself, in terms of how she is being "independent lady" and whatnot of her own right. But, at the end of the day her "patron" who keeps her keenly and treats her meanly, will always tell her as to who she can duly "invite" into her home or not. That is the precise and the real "sordid definition" of this political reality in which Somalia is experiencing it. Particularly when you stripped it down and you bring it down her "current political reality" from the level of "high politics" it can take to the low "analogous sense" it has at the pedestrian level sort of definition. And that, as you know, "speaks volumes" in more ways than one.

    Suldaanka, Waa kuwaas "Ilma-Igu-Sawir", beentoodii laba cisho gudahood lagu soo qabtey. You see when your whole world revolves around what bogus lies and what propaganda will you tell this morning, so that your trolls and your bots will flood the social media, and there is nothing beyond that you are worried about, like whether those who you are lying about them (like this World Bank's fund) may get back at you or not, then this what happens. And this means, you make a large claim about your government given money to its citizens, and you also claim that the money comes from the government's coffers (which is what Mr. Farmaajo just did in here). And before the week is over, the folks who gave you the money will release a press-statement (or even a tweet, like this one) telling the world that this is the World Bank's money. And to boot, they seem to have added that the pseudo-government in Villa Somalia was nothing but a medium intended to distribute that money to those who needed it the most. But they were not the originators of those funds. Hence, all you have achieved in here is an international embarrassment (which is what Mr. Farmaajo has today, with nothing less than egg on his face) at worse of it. And at best of it, all you have achieved so far was a nothing but a two days of cheap propaganda, where your trolls in the social media were telling the Somalis that Mr. Farmaajo has seen fit to distribute Somali's national money, call Baxnaano, to those who were in a difficult position. In other words, two days of "Igu-Sawir cheap propaganda" had cost him dearly, given that the world now knows that he would stoop so low as to actually claim a fictitious generosity for his government with aid money that was given to him by others. Think about that, folks. The sight of it and the sheer unmitigated sorry picture it gives off when one views it squarely without flinching from it.

    And that is where you fail to see the forest from the trees. Aside from natural competition between clans for political, economic etc, there is nothing else. In South Somalia, let alone whole cities under dispute between clans, there whole regions in dispute, farm land in dispute, houses and property in dispute. And to top that, political difference, clan difference and what you. If I were a betting man (which I am not), I would say Somaliland has solid foundation to build on. Whereas Somalia has yet to hit the bottom of the depths of its sinking ship, let alone building something on any foundation.. What you see in Mogadishu or anywhere in South Somalia is a mirage. When AMISom leaves Somalia, that is when you will see what I mean.

    Suldaanka, Lool, well, what do you expect from "igu-Sawir-crew" of Villa Somalia? They really and genuinely think that playing a fake-media and farcical games, especially of the cheap kind and of the sort they have pulled in here will get them somewhere, politically. Or at least, perhaps that will be enough really to actually fool a sufficient number of people about the merit of their daily jobs they are doing in Villa Somalia. Moreover, they also think that if you create a breathtakingly bogus "public relation narrative" from thin air, then people will all of a sudden believe them. That is why they have spent so much money and with ceaseless effort on "media misinformation agenda". And through all these efforts of having endless trolls in the social media, endless bogus and glorifying youtube videos about them, and with all these kinds of paid Facebook propaganda, which in turn were all ginned up to shout about them and to speak how good they are doing. They really think that sort of effort can be good enough to take the place of a concrete reality or they can "stand-in" for the place the required and "tangible" outcome in which they were expected to deliver to the public ought to have been. Especially when on the other hand they can't (in the life of them) even "secure" or ensure the safety of the roads of Mogadishu from Al-Shabaab's murderous misfits, if, on the other hand, these roads were to be open to the public, which they are not at the moment.

    Secondly, once the industrial complex is established, the government should encourage local large businesses that have a proven success record (not start ups) to open Textile Factories in the industrial park. These local companies are then to enter into technology transfer agreements (not joint ventures) with large foreign large textile companies (plenty in China and Turkey). The foreign company will provide all the machinery and tools required by the factory, engineers and technicians to help run the factory and train local engineers and technicians, and most importantly marketing for the production of the factories. In return, the foreign company gets a yearly royalty (paid in dollars) and a percentage of all sales. Getting access to foreign markets should not be too difficult as Somalia is eligible for programmes such as the Everything But Arms programme that allows tariff free access for the exports of poor countries. We can also target African countries and the Middle East. This method is how Bangladesh was able to start its successful textile industry in the late 70s when a single company called Desh entered into such an agreement with a large Korean company called Daewoo. Today, Bangladesh earns billions from this industry. Read here for Bangladesh's remarkable story: https://www.jstor.org/stable/10.1086/661218?seq=1#metadata_info_tab_contents The government in return will give local companies special low cost long maturity loans to the local factories located in this industrial complex. This will help them with their start up costs and paying for wages etc (it will take the local companies time to learn how to run the factories efficiently and turn a profit). The government will also provide free rent, water and electricity and tax benefits for the first 5 years. It will also provide these companies priveleged access via special accounts through the Development Fund to get the dollars these companies need to pay for the technology licenses and royalties, and imports needed to manufacture the textiles. These companies based in the industrial park will have zero rated import tax and port duties on all goods that go into exports via a bonded warehouse system (basically in a local company spends 1 million shillings in import taxes and port duties on dyes from turkey, they will be reimbursed this money once they export the goods those dyes were made into and they provide a proof of export). In return for all this support, every company based in the industrial park will have to meet rigorous export targets. For example, after 1 year each company will have to export a certain figure (in dollars) and say 75% off all production output has to be destined for export, not the Somali market. The targets will change on a yearly basis as the local companies get better and better. Any company that fails to meet these stringet targets will lose all the perks they get (rent will "suddenly" go up, loans and taxes will become due, and the water and electricity company will begin charging at high rates). They will soon go out of business and will be bought out by the successful companies left (who will continue receiving all the perks as long as they keep meeting the targets). This prevents lacklustre 'fadhiid' companies continuing to benefit at the public's expense. Winners will be rewarded and losers culled. This is business not child's play. I call this system Siyaasadda Koolkoolinta Shirkadaha Cardunka ah. Koolkoolin means to nurture, and cardun is a small infant tree that still hasn't matured enough to produce fruits, it requires watering and protection from the wind and goats. Likewise infant industries, like our hypothetical textile industry here, requires support and protection from international competition until the industry matures and is able to withstand the competition. But these industries will only 'grow up' if you support them and protect them. The barometer to measure this growth are the export targets. This focus on exports avoids the pitfalls of Import Substitution Industrialisation as was seen in many developing countries in the 70s and 80s such as much of Africa and Latin America. This is known as Export Promotion. The only countries that did this were Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and nowadays China. You can see which countries were successful and which ones weren't. Once this is done and the companies start exporting, the dollars will begin flowing in. This is a vital period as the government must impose Foreign Exchange Controls to prevent these hard won dollars being squandered on luxury consumption by this new elite (or stashed abroad in houses in Dubai). These funds will then be recycled mostly into the companies in the industrial complex to upgrade their equipment, systems etc. to increase capacity, quality, and their share of the international market. Some funds will also be used for social programmes and national infrastructure. For those that disagree with this, remember these companies only became successful because they were given scarce funds that the Somali people were deprived of in their time of need. So they have no right to spend this wealth they 'earned' however they please.

    I know I am in danger of given an endless headache to some of the ninnies around here of SOL, but how on earth does federalism in Somalia ends Somaliland? Do these ninnies believe what is a make-believe government guarded by AMISOM in Somalia has the wherewithal to end anything on Somaliland? Do they think that Somaliland that had not been party to Somalia since 1991 will all of a sudden say that the jig is up and we therefore should join Somalia? Don't they know that the UN had been producing useless report like this alleging that Somaliland is part and parcel of Somalia since 1992? Do they know any of these facts? Or are they just trolling us in here of SOL? Lastly knowing that Somalia have had a federal system on the books since 2004, and knowing that Somaliland had gone from strength to strength since that time, how does a federalism in Somalia, even if it's fully implemented on the ground there, end Somaliland's political agenda? I am really seriously interesting in the leap of logic in that argument and how it reads in the cold light of the day. Lets see if the ninny who brought this argument in here could furnish in a chapter and in verse sort of way his logic that "connect" the implementation of federalism in Somalia on one hand and the end of Somaliland's political agenda, on the other hand. Again, whose army can do that, meaning can actually end Somaliland's political agenda? And that ought to have been the first freaking question in which any wretched coward of the sort who brought this argument in here should have asked oneself to, before anything else, really. It seems the level of argumentation in which some folks are sporting around here is so poor that you really would be hard pressed to believe that these plonkers ever went to a decent school in which they could be taught how to "marshal the facts", together, in-order to make a sustained argument. And therefore once you have all the facts together, then one can proceed to make one's argument in plain sight. And to boot, do that with sufficient logic and with a reasonable supposition behind it, which in turn can stand up to deep scrutiny. But apparently in here of SOL it seems that we are really left with what is no more dignified than "intellectual leftovers" of the worst sort. Or at least, perhaps, we are left with those who were too busy being involved in school's truancy scams, particularly when the lectures of: "how to build an argument" were being dispensed with at whatever dinghy and failing school in the Western's countries they went to. And therefore such thing was taking place there, indeed. Hence, the sight of them desperately trying to detain us with nothing more elevated than a warmed empty waffle.

    Faqashism has nothing to do with clan as you pointed out, or the ordinary clansman in the bushes for that matter, but it is the wicked select few elites who exploit the ignorant masses by using the clan card to hold on to their privileges and power. Just as they are too eager to use a "borrowed muscle" to hold on to power, they will not hesitate to inflame clan sentiments among the masses to camouflage their true intentions.

    In fact, to transfer his dead body to Nairobi from Lagos, the clan members had to do 'Qaadhaan', due to the expensive Air service at the time. And after he got to Nairobi, he had to be flown to border town using a small aircraft. And then transported on truck to his final resting place. A long and undeginfied journey. He must have been glad to finally be rested, after several days of loading/unloading a dead body. In another sad but be-fitting death, was General Gaani who died in a hotel room in Nairobi. It took almost week and after the hotel management recieved complaints from other guest about the awful smell coming of Gaani's room.

    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.

    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. But back home you are no where to be seen, really. And finally, the only place we are "binding" our time on it is that town of Buuhoodle, in which we will take it in a heartbeat by force, indeed, if this sort of nonsense of yours is what is being contemplated for it at all. Got it yea Ina-Gumeed?

    this is not the first time Mr Osman has launched a Somalia-focused political party. way back in 2009, he launched Hanoolato Somalia National Party in London and that was a non-starter and a major failure. here's a video of this one man show:

    They do not even know who is who in the south. They just assuming everyone in modish area is from H tribe. The victims of the last accident seems majority Somali Bantu. Soon you reach Afgooye, you will not see many people from H tribes.

    Instead of cheering on Somaliland with pointless support, you ought to encourage them to build up a deterrent force that can counter any Liyuu overreach into their jurisdiction. The Liyuu are able to cross into the border town with perfect impunity because there is nothing, both moral and legal, preventing them from doing so.

    The billions being sent by diaspora Somalis should be re invested to the well being of their kids. Many times I see a xalimo and Farah with 7 poor looking kids who live on the edge but have sizeable investments in Africa. They are selling their childrens future often using money from the governments intended for the well being of their kids.

    Great point Saalax. It has always been Awdal, Half of Sanaag and Sool were 100% pro Somalia. The formula changed further recently and Saalax's family became 20 to 30% pro-somalia. Pro-Somalia: 65% No opinion: 20% Hardcore secessionists: 15% (This group is usually from the clan that holds the presidency. The loyalty changes every election)

    Kiikuuyada saan uma waalateen haddee isku kalsoonyihiin. They went to Xabashada to pressure dowladda dhexe - did not work. They tried the Eritareeya route - didn't work either. They then went to see kaabihii Jabuuti - wax ka soo baxayna ma leh. They tried cunaqabateyn dowladda dhexe by doing childish games of banning direct flights from Soomaaliya; by detaining ministers and MPs; by closing xad beenaadka in Raaskambooni and NFD area; by entertaining shameless, always used secessionists; by expelling Soomaali ambassador; by arresting some prominent Soomaalis living in Islii; by trying futile character assassination against madaxweyne Farmaajo; by over-using their Kiikuuyo media propaganda; by their bogus claim that they arrested a Soomaali 'official' close to the president with millions of dollars at a Nayroobi airport; by using mindless qabyaaladist Soomaalis and so-called opposition groups; by using some so-called madaxweyne maamul goboleed ku sheeg; by using siyaasiinta, odey dhaqameedka Reer Sujuu; by undiplomatically critizing their own erswhile allies of Ingiriiska and Norway after seeing a Norwegian foreign minister land in Muqdisho. And now using their last, desperate card they were left with: Mareykanka. Nothing worked and nothing will work because Soomaaliya xaq ayee u taagantahay and hadduu Rabi idmo Soomaaliya xaqeeda buuxo wey heleysaa.

    Another day, another absolutely baseless - and quite frankly delusional, comment by our resident source-whisperer @galbeedi Do these lies you keep making up just appear in your head? No sane person would actually admit to their delusions on a public forum, but you seem to think its ok to do so as long as you add the magical "my source told me..." catchphrase. With regards to your baseless claim, well, we dont need imaginary-friends or made up sources, the facts speak for themselves: Somaliland is 4th on the list of top five UAE foreign direct investment destinations: 1- KSA ($2.58 bn) 2- Canada ($1.68 bn) 3- India ($1.28 bn) 4- Somaliland ($0.86 bn) 5- Egypt ($0.39 bn) Sources, you ask? The official UAE monthly dashboard: I can go on... Ka nax oo nafta waa
