    "It seems that most Tigrayan observers and analysts predict in best case a much weakened federal authority and a transition to a confederal type of arrangement, possibly with ‘split sovereignty’ between the center and regional states; or in the worst case an implosion of power and the disintegration of Ethiopia. These two scenarios, and everything in-between, are possibly all too pessimistic; but as stated optimists are hard to find in Ethiopia these days, let alone in Tigray. The most recent development is pushing towards a political confrontation between TPLF and PP; between the regional state government and the federal authority, as stated in TPLF’s Executive Committee statement from May 4, 2020:" In-depth Analysis: Towards Tigray Statehood? - Addis Standard ADDISSTANDARD.COM Addisstandard.com

    Suldaanka, Man, what historical day it was. I was there (right there in the crowd), I was attached to late Prof. Ibrahim Meygaag Samatar (AUN), as his note-taker in the meetings. There were endless political meetings of the SNM's high command (by Mr. Tuur, the Chairman, and the rest of the central committee). Particularly as to what to do in the light of what took place in the country and the total destruction that we had in our hand at the time. I was a graduate student in London (UCL), who as soon as I heard the country was liberated, I legged-off from London, took a flight to Djibouti, and I was in the ground in Hargeisa by mid-April. The country was like a horror-scene straight out from Hiroshima kind of destruction. But by the grace of God, it was in our SNM's hand and it was free, at last. What a historical day it was, indeed.

    That is the future I guess.Nomadic lifestyle is unsustainable. Specially when rains have become sporadic, droughts recurrent and also the political environments is becoming less conducive to easy movement of people and animals. At the same time, agri-tech is becoming cheaper and more available to the small scale farmers. These are technologies that were once in the domain of the big boys in town with deep pockets. The know-how and the knowledge about new ways and methods of farming are becoming accessible to a lot of people. So it is inevitable that settled farming will win the day. For instance, camel farming is becoming more and more popular thesedays. It is more profitable when they are in a farm where they feed and water are guaranteed. They will give you guaranteed milk output and one can plan their finances accordingly. A man who returned from the diaspora came up with an innovative new way of farming. He rents only she-camels that are milking from nomads. The nomads get a guaranteed monthly income from their she-camel without worrying about the feed, water or health of the animal. This guy now has more than 5,000 she-camels that he doesn't own but rents them all.

    Small notes for the nomads about the great wars and HoA. 1. All Somalis except Djibouti and today's Puntland were part of the Second World War. Those in Puntland and Djibouti had agreements with the big powers in their territories not to make them fight in other lands. 2. Salamanders were the highest level of self command of any people in Africa that were in either side. Example: in the Campaign to liberate what is now Eritrea, Somalilander commander had higher status on the campaign between Kassala Sudan and Asmara Eritrea. Even though the Sudanese were more in number than Somalilanders, but the Somalilanders are not colonial army. This mattered for the British. Somalianders were only lower than Australians and South Africans. 3. If it wasn't that Africans have no self respect, Eritreans if they remember the war should be thankful of Somalilanders. The Sudanese were blamed for the religious conflict that arose in Eritrea, never the Somalis. The Somalis are never blamed for any abuses (even the common ones in wars) while others are. 4. Those who were on Italian side were undisciplined, abusive in both Somalia and Ethiopia. 5. Somalis never joined the Foreign Legion from Djibouti like other Africans did, nor did they Join the Italians outside HoA, like Eritreans did in Libya and Somalia. Somalis can celebrate end of WWII even though most of the fighting by Somalis on any side was done as Europe was starting latest was early 1942.

    kkk Most of the commentators are innocent average xalimo/faarax, they will take anything on face value. In fact, the reason why many people make money from 'Fake news' is because of people like these. They have no idea that this is part of an elaborate misinformation project by the 'fake it, til you make it' crew. According to them, they have been to Hargeisa and assessed the situation there.

    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.

    President Lyndon H. Johnson captured the sentiment of how influential whites see poor whites: “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best-colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.” Capitalist whites will hold only to power as long as they convince poor whites that they are better than America's minorities.

    It was a bad idea to stop Khat without planing. The major crimes that would go to the roof is the police and security people to use Khat bans to confiscate vehicles prom the people. There were large Khat farms in Arabsiyo area in nineteen eighties. While in high school, I went to one of the farms belonged to a friend and they were profitable. People should be allowed to cultivate and keep the cash inside their communities.

    Somaliland has recorded 22 new cases out of 150 tests taken over the last few days. The total number of cases found now stands at 40. With 5 deaths. The president has underscored the need to adhere to the medical professional guidelines. Also some new measures will be introduced. These include the shutdown of the flea markets (Suuq Duqsiile) around the country.

    Bari dialect is technically Waqooyi but due to the political situation as of the past 30 years, Waqooyi has morphed to be associated with Somaliland exclusively. It would make more sense if we agreed on parameters of what constituents to dialects and what regions. Is Af Maay Maay part of this continuum we're currently speaking about in this thread? What exactly is Konfuur? Is it the Banaadir accent? What about Central Somalia (ie Mudug etc)? If we can't agree on what is what, this thread is kinda useless and will probably confuse the OP more.

    As I said all the Somali words you keep mentioning are still very much in our vocabulary, I use them and everyone I know uses them although the use of foreign loan words is increasingly becoming normalised and many such foreign words have replaced Somali words in day to day conversations. There are however some words that have become more specialised and therefore lost their original meaning. For instance, the word cusbo is now exclusively used for the large salt crystals which is not suitable for cooking but used for other purposes. And the word bur is now the name for a type of fried snack usually eaten for affur during Ramadan. Many years ago when I was a teenager, I had a heated argument with a Cumaani carab guy in the presence of my now deceased cousin and in anger decided to use "my mother tongue" to swear at him so I used a word like dayuus or something similar which I can't remember. But alas the Arab guy understood what until then I thought was exclusive to us and so landed myself in hot water

    @galbeedi I heard waa la mehersaday. Don't quote me thought. With regards to her work, most of her poems are based on fiction. I mean, she talks about lala-land from a by-gone era - barisamaadkii. Anyone that skips the reality and dwells in a dream is just full of sheeko-baralay. That said, the poem you have posted here is a good one nonetheless. This is Cabdilahi Xassan Ganney (Xassan Ganney's son). He is a poet in his own right. One of the leading song writers of this age.

    It is a good poem. Dad yahaw loo soo tashaday Iyana sii kala tashaday Intaa tashataan mar uun Xaqa aad tabanaysaan In mar uun aad timaamataan Miyaa ka talaaalan tihiin. It is a good observation . The people became cattle while the elite is looting them in the name of government. When was the last time people collectively demanded anything in Somaliland?. Speaking of poems, Somalis especially those in Hargeisa , or I should say southern Hargeisa have an extraordinary talent of composing poems that touch the souls of the people. Here is another Nimco Qorane type which I consider a poet laureate of these young generation.

    Ragga rag dheh. In the video below is Muj. Hassan Isse Jama, a lawyer by profession. He was the acting President when this video was shot. As President A. A. A. Tuur was probably outside the country at the time. The video was taken early 1991, probably few months after Burco Conference declaration of independence. The Confidence shown is another level. Although the city of Hargeisa is full of armed men, yet the Acting president/VP is walking around the bullet-ridden streets without any protection or bodyguard.
