And rightfully so, he should not go anywhere. Burco is his home, his family is in Burco, and he wants to serve his people in Burco.
  2. I think the regions should elect their own governors and mayors. I don't like the idea of Hargaisa deciding the affairs of Sanaag or any other region, the constitutional powers needs amendment ASAP, the regions deserve more powers.
  3. 1. For a man to die over the sacking of a Police chief waa ayan daro, hopefully the authorities/community leaders are able to defuse the situation quickly. 2. This president should really learn to stop engaging in activities that might create the perception for a Conflict of Interest, he has a long history of doing this bs. 3. I'm also really disappointed in Warracade, Silanlyo uses the the interior ministers (who are always HY) as his foot soldiers. 4. I find the none-Somalilanders discussing Somaliland internal affairs annoying (I don't know why)

Maybe foreigners are able to manage it better? I say we give the lease to a reputable port managing company ( a short lease, maximum 10 years) under the conditions that they hire locals only so that a smooth knowledge transfer can occur when their lease is up.

    Awra Amba

Shuuhaada A total opposite of the myopic standards of measurements for the successful society. "Two different directions and no, we don't stop trading and living just because we want the Akhira. Just incase any obtuse house Negreos wants to come to that conclusion. "One reason the people of Awra Amba are able to work so hard is that they do not follow organized religion. In neighboring Christian and Muslim villages, residents respect the Sabbath and holidays. “They have quite frequent religious days, so on those days, they don't go to [do] farming work,” says sociologist Ashenafi Alemu of Ethiopia's University of Gondar. “But for Awra Amba, this is not the case. They work every day.” The lack of religion is not the only competitive advantage for Awra Amba"
  7. Have you traveled to Thailand-Malaysia-Cambodia for at least a month stay? What was your experience like? Please tell us about it. I am bag packing to go there in January so I'm curious.

This is a non-profit organization ('m guessing) and you're dedicating a lot of time in this project (so it seems) how do you plan to cover the operations/maintenance cost of the facility? The construction of Somaliland national library is taking place now, are you working with them?
  9. I suggest you guys share as little as possible about yourself on this public forum, Somalis are typically nosy and nasty people - if you don't want people to know your business be as vague as possible and avoid the cross-examination style questions.
  10. She's lovely, and is inspirational to other women and to men as well.
  11. In Chicago right now and the wind chill is outrageous

Don't be afraid to punch back and be as ruthless as you can be - don't worry about their feelings. (This goes for whoever that's being called silly names)

  14. ^^Sometimes I wonder if these obnoxious characters are like that in person or do they only feel empowered behind their cpu screen - is pathetic really.
