  1. I understand most Somali nationalists want a strong central government but at the end of the day, Somalia is a very fragile country with a very clannish society. We need to slowly prosper, educate our people and raise the next generation of Somalis. We may never have a strong central government, and I am fine with it as long as each Somali clan is able to build its Tuulo and our common Somali identity is protected by all of us. The current generation of Somalis is not ready for a strong central government. Federalism is the most practical way forward. We must be practical and support the nation in whatever way that helps its survival. Farmaajo may have had good intentions when he came to power, but I am sure history will remember him differently. Mogadishu was a booming city for many years before he came to power. Each transitional goverment before him did whatever it had to, to march the country forward. It is very appalling to even think about what is happening. It is a huge setback. Great leaders have a way to recognize the moment. Farmaajo failed to recognize that his time is over. He should have resigned many weeks ago.
  2. President John Magufuli of Tanzania is dead. He is going to be replaced by Samia Hassan.
  3. Good move the Banadir admin. We need to take this disease very seriously.
  4. I was against Abiy's war against Tigray and now it is very clear the man is an Amhara tool and is engaged in pure ethnic cleansing. We have to always be grounded on principle and reject genocide and ethnic cleansing regardless of how it may impact Somalia's political situation. Supporting evil is not worth it.
  5. I said the other day that people in Somalia are dying in record numbers due to COVID and you are not hearing about it because of the state our country is in. AUN Ali Mahdi
  6. Time to kick some terrorist butt.
  7. Doesn't have to have direct connection to the country. There are schools in the US with names like Leonardo da Vinci or Churchill or some other person unrelated directly to that community.
  8. The problem with Somalia is that everytime alshabab attacks, nobody is held accountable. The terrorist just get away with whatever crime they commit. It is very rare to see terrorist chased, cornered and captured. Job well done by the police.
  9. Strong central government with a very strong leader won't work for Somalia. We tried it and it failed miserably. It is better to preserve whatever unity we have by enoucraging a decentralized, effective and functioning system that lets each region/tribe build basic governance to serve the citizens.
  10. I agree with the intent to give our community more visibility, but there are many other historic Somali figures that did so much for the nation that could have been chosen if "Somali" was what the exec board was after. Ilaahay ha u naxariisto. Must be her family that lobbied for this.
  11. People are dying in Somalia in record numbers due to COVID. The disease has not spread very rapidly. Neeftaa ku dhegtay ayaad maqli. The goverment is not reporting actual death numbers because we don't have the tools to collect that important data from all corners of the land. My relatives are telling us there is massive death in the country due to COVID, specially among the elderly. Very sad situation.
  12. Allaha u naxariisto. You never know who is playing games in Mogadishu. The bombings are so vague and "politicized" that it could be the next door neighbor blowing things up to get the next guy. Dangerous.
