    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.

    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. Markaas ayuu yidhi: "Arey Qaldaan Aheeydaa, Mugoo Ma Fahmin Miyaa?" Markaas baan ku idhi waar yaahe waxan aad ku hadleyso garan maaye ii sheeg waxa aad ku daldalmeyso waxa ay yihiin. Markaas ayuu yidhi, "shirib" aa la dhahaa kan. Dabadeedna waxa aan idhi dee waayehee tafsiirkiisa isii. Markaas buu yidhi kan waxa la dhahaa: "Xamar-na Xisaab, Xaradheera-na Xoog". 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. Sababta oo ah waa niman geesiyiin ah oo "Xoog" iyo muruq laba-quwadle ah ku kalabaxa. Mana jecla in aad "Xisaab" aad ula timaado.

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".

    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.

    It won't do much for the average Somali. All it does is allow Somalia's corrupt government to borrow more money so that corrupt politicians can finally get very rich. It is a gimmick.

    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!

    ^^** That is a good news indeed. Well, on the laughter side of things, I am kind of waiting for the hapless political clique in Villa Somalia to start writing their usual "complaining letters" to the UNSC and to even write to the Singaporean's government about this particularly company investing in Somaliland. After all, that is all they are capable of doing under any circumstances. They are not in a position to stop Somaliland. They are not in a position to stop others to invest in her country. So all they are left with it is to cry "uncle" to the UNSC and to the international community (IC) about what Somaliland is doing, as if the same "powers-that-be" in the international community (IC) that keeps them on "life-support" will say to them that, yeah, sure, we will stop Somaliland's getting ahead, economically and developmentally. What wretched clique they are in out there in Villa Somalia, actually beggars belief.

    Che, Waryaa, Fuley Ina-Gumeed, oo waliba hadhkiisa ka cararow sida tolkaa "dhadig dh-abacayo", aan kuu sheegee waxba lagaa wediin weydiin maayo taariikhda SNM iyo mid Somaliland leedahayba.

And just in case you are wondering how to deal with being a "wretchedly sniffling clique" who are the "historical defeated lot" of the Somali peninsula, here is the "historical picture" of the famous day of back then of 6 of April of 1981 and the precise moment in which the inauguration of SNM was actually proclaimed in a press-conference held in a London Hotel by the five (5) men who created it, who were as follows: 1- Eng. Mr Maxamed Xaashi Cilmi, 2- Ambassador Mr Axmed Ismaciil Cabdi (Duqsi). 3- Professor Cabdi salaan Yaasiin, 4- Mr Xasan Aadan Wadaadiid, 5- Mr Siciid Cabdilaahi Cigaal.

    Che, Well, I never knew that such a "historical reality" of what the then SNM have wrought in that year of 1988, and how that was an "inspiration" to the Eritreans in their struggle of the time with Ethiopian's dictator, would be something that bring our Che into seeing red mist, indeed. Moreover, the Eritrean's themselves have actually said it so many times that the SNM were an inspiration, or at least it gave them a morale boast. How so? Well, you may not know it, but Mr Mengistu Haile Mariam and Gen. Siyad Barre had a "mutually re-reinforcing problem", whereby each supported the other's one's internal insurgency. And the fact was that by 1988 they had both agreed not to support those insurgencies of each other's country. Of course, that meant that both TPLF and EPLF were most likely headed to be turf-out of Mogadishu by the time SNM attack in that year of 1988. Furthermore, when that attack of the SNM took place in 1988, Gen. Siyad Barre was actually attending an OAU's meeting in Addis-Ababa, and he immediately felt that Mr Mengistu have indeed "doubled-crossed" him. So the end result of it when he returned back to Mogadishu was that he allowed the likes of TPLF and EPLF to continue to get whatever meager support they were getting from him. Hence, that meant that the SNM's attack of 1988 helped the Eritreans in two folds or at least in two ways. 1- Gen. Siyad Barre have cancelled the imminent departure from Mogadishu of these Ethiopian's insurgencies due to the fact that he was thinking that Mr Mengistu had betrayed him by not stopping the SNM's insurgency attacking his regime's forces in the North. So he decided to extend the stay of both the TPLF and the Eritreans in Mogadishu, in-order that they can continue to wage both of their insurgencies back in the old Ethiopia. Whilst at the same time they will still be getting some kind of a "diplomatic cover" in Mogadishu from his regime. 2- The attack of 1988 actually also meant that the then SNM have shown how daring of an attack can actually unsettled entrenched military position of a dictatorship. Which by logical extension means, the Eritrean can also see how they can mount such attack. Particularly, by way of "besieging" the forces of the Ethiopian's regime in the big Eritrean's cities. Of course, this kind of "insurgency sieges" of big cities was actually what the then SNM have shown how to do it against Gen. Siyad's forces that were then "occupying" the Northern part of the country. So all in all, our Suldaanka, was spot on there. It's just pity that you haven't read enough of Somali history to know exactly of what he was getting at. Or perhaps you know your History so well. And therefore the reason you didn't like the "inference" towards the then SNM in which he was making up there has largely to do with the fact that the only "historical inference" in which Eritreans (or anyone else for that matter) could ever learn from the discredited SSDF is how to be "cowardly runners", who in turn never saw any battlefield they never felt the deep urge to legged away from it. Hence, such a "glorious history" of the then SNM was all too "painful" for you to contemplate on. Particularly knowing the kind of "cowardly disposition" in which your clan's SSDF outfit were known for throughout the recent Somali history.

    Guess who the Reer Koonfurku hate most these days? It is not Ethiopia, in fact they are in bed with the Xabashi, their President is happily doesn't mind being the Escort for Dr. Abiye Ahmed. It is not Kenya either, because you can see how much they tolerated Kenya's unwarranted naked attacks, they were turning their cheeks everytime they get slapped on the other cheek. And definitely, it is not Eritrea, Uganda, Burundi or all those. Guess which country is their number one enemy. It is United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Now using the old Algebraic formula of elimination. it is not UK or United Arab Emirates per say either. It is in fact, Somaliland. Now you know, Reer Koonfurka Xabashi wa necebnay... this or that. It is none of that.

    Build the road Kililka Somaliland that will bring together 10 million Somalis and other neighbors Don't panic, don't even bother to think regarding the show dog and pony for what goes in HoA. Never buy into the most abused words in the HoA today -regional integration -lol. Except for the road, port, common security..everything else is empty talk. With Ghelleh just talk through third person and maybe at weddings and heaven forbid burials of common friend or prominent person, never with dog and pony show kind of trips and visits. The sooner you finish the big projects the sooner you can approach Turkish, India...not China, Russia, Iran....those are too toxic at this time. Even India, Britain, Turkish are dangerous as America is pressuring them to be solely under its feet, but as small fish you can say oh I was simply swimming and somehow the ocean took me there. I am a poor guy no GPS of my own. This road, port, dry port project may prove to be the most important project for the ages with far reaching consequences. It might even ensure that you will never have big security problem from both Kililka and Djibouti which means most of your borders can be guarded by locals and few militia locals, nothing to spend.

    Suldaanka And Barwaaqo, It seems as I had expected Mr Cheeseman had in effect "cave-in", although, both Mr Abby Ahmed and Mr Uhuru Kenyatta were smart enough not ask of him to put things in a "clear letters of surrender" just to satisfy their power over him. But in diplomacy, usually the things that are "silent" in deliberate way are actually the things that are far more deafening in their scream of "importance". And by that I mean you really need to read carefully (or examine closely) the Tweet of Mr Abby Ahmed in which both of you have quoted in here, particularly this bit that says the following: And I quote: "As an outcome both agreed to work towards peace & to take measures in addressing particular issues that escalated the tensions" (unquote) In here you can see that the notion of saying "to take measures" in effect invites both parties to de-escalate the tension, which means it's surreptitiously suggesting that the court case must be "vacated" at best. Or failing that then both parties must take appropriate measures to "de-emphasize" the legal side of the matter along the line of Somalia not pursuing actively for a judgement to come out forth from the court. In other words, if you do not want a court to make a ruling on a case in which you have brought it before it, you can do this in two ways. Firstly, you can agree for the case to be "vacated" from the dock and therefore you ask your lawyer to tell the court to close the case, since you are no longer interesting in a defined judgement from the court to be issued. Or failing that, you can simply slow-down your active pursuit of the matter by way of not asking your lawyer to keep on insisting that matters must be resolve speedily. And you simply allow the judge who is presiding over the matter to forget about your case. Or to put it at the back of the cases in which he (or she) is dealing with. Hence, such later tactics will allow the case to "die on the vine" (as it were). And that is most likely what Mr Cheeseman has agreed to it. Particularly, in the sense of not taking the case out of the court (for he will be crucified, politically). But at the same time by simply allowing matters to be in "limbo" at the court without Somalia actively pursuing a "judgement" from the court, will in turn allow him to reach a "working deal" with Mr Kenyatta in-terms of how to "divide-up" any loot that can be had from those disputed areas of the sea. Or perhaps quietly he can suggest to the court that both parties prefer matters to be dealt with in a private manner between them without the court bothering to "deliver" any judgement of any kind, which in turn will mean the court (ICJ) will then be happy to oblige, indeed. So that way the case will simply die on a "suspension" whilst at the same time the parties to the legal quarrel (in this case Somalia vs. Kenya) will pretend as if nothing is amiss in here. And for good measure they will get on with the attempt of finding out some other kind of "out-side-of-the-court-resolution" in which both parties can profit from it. This "later tactics" is as old as the court system itself. Particularly in the sense of never taking the case out of the court (for it's too embarrassing for all concern parties) whilst at the same time not actively pursuing any decision from the court to be delivered just suit them to a tee, indeed.. Moreover, so many nations and various "international entities", such as corporations and others, around the world who have legal cases against each other practice this form of "legal nod and wink", whereby both parties will avoid the "sheer embarrassment" of closing a "contentious case" that is before the court. Whilst at the same time doing everything they can for that case to simply die on the dock of the court-room without any judgement being made for that case. And that means, both parties will agree to use that old "metaphor" of "leaving a sleeping dogs where they lay" (so to speak). I suspect this is the convenient "formula" in which Mr Abby Ahmed, Mr Uhuru Kenyatta and Mr Cheeseman, have agreed on together in here. We shall see soon enough from the Kenyan's side of things of how they read what was agreed on in that meeting. Given that Villa Somalia will never tell it straight to Somalis in-terms of what they have agreed on in here.

    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.

    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?

    Very weak logic. Puntland has a deal with Mogadishu, are they doing better than Somaliland? Sometimes I wonder, do Somalilanders with such weak disposition lack intellect, vision... or both? We in Somaliland have so much to work on, from corruptions to tribalism to management of resources... you name it. But a deal with Mogadishu will never be the answer. Have some self-respect, Somaliland is one of the five Somali regions, the first independent Somali state, you would not seek anything from Mogadishu more than you would Djibouti, Jigjiga or Garissa. You are on equal footing with the four other Somali regions, not a renegade part of one of them. For anyone delusional enough to imagine a deal with Mogadishu being the answer, I reiterate.. look at Puntland. You're almost as delusional looking towards Mogadishu for your solutions as Mogadishans are when they look towards AMISOM/UN/Ethiopia for their solutions.

    Faroole is Somaliland's mole. Unlike other southern politicians, he is allowed to travel to Somaliland. With regards to Garowe being part of Somaliland and Somalia talks, it is a pipe-dream. There won't be any talks with Cheeseman, but the President after Cheeseman who will be from Mogadishu and Somaliland will make final decisions on these issues. Puntland won't be relevant, if they don't abide by the agreements, then we will make them abide by it.

    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 SNM famous for introducing to the world the now populor Technico or local SNM lingua 'Dayacan' - A mostly Toyota pickup truck with its cabin removed and a heavy gun mounted in the back. In South Somalia they keep the cabin on. The first such vehicle was introduced by the SNM and knicknamed as "Sahra Tuugo", it was based on a Mercedes truck body. The name came after it took part in many battles with Somalia Army in which it was able to bring back more armoury from looting military storage armoury caches. Dayacan (no love/tlc) kurta laga wada jaray, for easy accessibily.

    This is very, very, interesting development, indeed. And I see it as a way of IGAD finally understanding that this bogus talk of the "legal union" of the old and now clearly defunct Somali Republic has been over since 1991. And therefore it's time to help Somalia to get off this bogus talk in which it endlessly peddles to itself about Somaliland, so that they, as in Somalia, can come to the ground of "real truth" of the region. And that is the "real truth" that basically tells Somaliland and Somalia are two complete states, in political sense, in territoriality-wise, and in "De-facto basis". Consequently, the only "ingredient" that is missing in-order to complete the "stability jig-saw" of the region is the "De-jure separation" between Somalia and Somaliland, which is the kind of legal parting of ways in which Ethiopia and Eritrea have had experienced with each other, back in 1991. Hence, the sooner Villa Somalia wakes up and actually smell the coffee of that sort, the better the Horn-of-Africa (HoA) states will be, both, in the short-term basis and in the long-term sense. Moreover, I really will like to "eavesdrop" on the deep anguish and heartache they are having right about now, or are experiencing right now, in places like Villa Somalia. But, still, I wouldn't be surprised, if the Villa Somalia's twitter bots start "inventing" a whole new cloth of "fake news", along the line of suggesting that Villa Somalia have actually agreed for this foreign minister to go Hargeisa, after the Eritreans have asked them. As if the likes of Eritrea's president, Mr Afwerki, is the sort of the guy who picks up the phone and then ask the likes of Mr Cheeseman of Villa Somalia whether his Eritrean's foreign minister should go to Hargeisa, or whether Villa Somalia has any "objection" to it. That is the sort of a "fake story" in which very soon, I suspect, the paid stooges and the breathless propagandists of Villa Somalia will be flooding the social media with it and into the rest of the internet with it, as well. You just wait, folks! But still all the same, it's very interesting regional-level "Geo-political move", particularly on the part of Eritrea. So, we shall await "further development" from that corner.

Start of a major infrastructure projects like Berbera Corridor 3. Access to market for Somaliland businesses including Livestock traders. 4. Further strengthening the partnership between UAE and Somaliland, with a view of UAE officially opening an embassy in Hargeisa. 5.

    Saalax, It is really wrong to characterize the D..r meeting in Addis as Jeegaan driven or Jeegaan related. It was the meeting of global D..r community from the horn of Africa.This elder from the Daroor is an exception to the general meeting here attended by large members from Gaashaamo and Daroor elders. The Facebook propaganda is concentrating on Suldaan Hassan of West Hargeisa and others from the Jeegaan clan members but it was attended by more than 60 elders from every sub clan of the Habro. Opposing Muuse Biixi administration is one thing, but nixing the gathering of the D..r to the internal Habro squabble is totally wrong. Odayga habarta la tus ma maqli jirtay. We had people from Kenya (Turkaana, Wajeer, Nairobi), from Shabeelaha Hoose, Jubba and Banaadir which are strongholds of the D..r. People came from Somali state mostly from Mooyaale, Harowo, Af Dheer region, Liibaan, Qoraxay, Diredhabe, Jarar and between. They came from Ceerigaabo and Sanaag, from Awdal, Hargeisa, Europe, Canada, US and Djibouti. Because of huge these land regions stretching from the Turkaana Kenya to Djibouti to Sanaag and Diredhaba, this is by far the largest community of the Somali speaking people. These were people scared by the anti colonial conflicts of sixteen and nineteenth century in the horn. As Ducaale said the SNM Habro are sitting within the Somali parliament as D..r designed by southern politicians. Reality speaking the Is...q has always been D..r despite the different political names they used to further their agenda for the last fifty years. As late as nineteenth century, some of the poems of the great poet Qamaan Bulhan stated: Iddor Dir weeye haddu dulaan soo qaado. The Addis affair was a D..r fest from beginning to the end. At the end , the delegates selected an elder council( Golaha dhaqanka Beesha D..r) . Seven members were selected. They elected as the first chairman Suldaan C/raxman Jaamac Dhawal from Awdal. The rest of the elders were from west Burco, two from the diverse Diredhabe community, Shabeelaha Hoose, Mooyaale, Baabili and a diaspora member to coordinate their next move. During these proceedings, not one single member ever mentioned Mustafe Cagjar of confronting other communities or speaking against anyone. It was all about unity , peace and creating a new environment of peace and coexistence with other communities. Yet, he is scared for no reason other than people finally looking for their rights and representation. For him to say , "Dadka shirka ka qayb galay Fasax igama qaadan" is both weakness and paranoia. Unlike what people believe, it was easy to call the names and celebrate the D..r groupings. The elders knew who and where every community resided and which groupings they belonged. The Habro are members of the Mahe D..r which is related to Water Maal and others in Lower Shabbeelle. I know many D block and even later the Hag community will resist when the D..r community tries to dethrone them and bring the badly needed peace that is elusive in Southern Somalia. Mustafe was the one who brought the D block to Jigjiga and used the Somali state tax payers money to pay for the compensation of the Sool community conflict, yet there was war going on 30 kilometers between the D..r community Ja..so and the Giraaf guys. We didn't oppose that move since it was intended to bring peace to two brotherly communities. The Shir intends also to end the conflicts in Dire dhabe and Mooyaale . He did everything to stop the conference to take place. Three days before the conference he purposed to bring the Shir to Jigjiga which was impossible for the last minute. He told the owners of the convention center that if explosions or something bad happens with that gathering , he will not be held responsible. He blocked most of the elders from Jigjiga area to attend the Shir. Yet all that had failed. The temporary deputy vice president who doesn't even have a legal status in his position should endorse the peaceful community gathering and hope for future progress. The absence of the D...r community from the political scene in South had negative impact on the sustaining of peaceful Somali state. We are intended to bring that balance of power back again. The greedy D block and the anarchist HAG had caused the suffering of millions of Somali people and I hope the D..r will take its role to reverse this problems and help save the Somali people from the useless duobaly that had failed to move the state to the right direction. I have nothing to say about the state of Mogadishu and Farmaajo government. It just circling the wagon and everything is looks like 2014 again. The Facebook is on fire since that Shir took place. There is no need to panic. Of course the presence of the Habro should alarm many , but it shouldn't cause any problems from those in Daroor.

    Recap: 1. President MBC and Dr. Abiye have matually agreed to support his initiiative to make the Horn of Africa a peaceful and more integrated region. Presient MBC reminded Dr. Abiye Ahmed that as young Colnel in the Somalia Air Force believed the same ideas and which were why they came to Ethiopia in order to break the cycle of mistrust and animosity that existed between Somalis and Ethiopians. 2. President MBC and Dr. Abiye have agreed to strenghten the already existing economic and security partnership between the two sides. This includes the 600 million dollar Berbera Coorditor project which will be initiated on 28th of February. 3. President MBC underscored that Somaliland sovereignty cannot be changed by the stroke of a pen of the Presidency, rather it is only possibly by Referendum. Hence, if the AU and UN and other International Community want to a Referendum that is binding, then they need to come to the table and we will organise a Referendum on the question. 4. Any new discussion/Talks between Somaliland and Somalia can only take place in an international setting and agreements that reached need to be binding and have consequences.
