  1. Much needed good news! If I were the Somali goverment, I would get this moving as fast as possible to avoid giving the Gulf countries a chance to derail this agreement through their usual tactics.
  2. Ducale, Awoowe cayda iyo aflagaadada Forumka uma wanaagsanee, ixtirimaaka iyo odaynimada yaan laga tegin. SOL rules prohibit any insult against other SOLers and the mention/insult of Somali clans.
  3. President Biixi's new nickname on SOL is "MAQASLE".
  4. Happy New Year nomads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. Observer, in the last 30 years, Sudan accepted a large number of Somali students ... educating doctors, engineers and scientists at a high number. Sudan has been great to us. I was delighted to see Erdogan visit Sudan. Duufaan, Somalia can learn a lot from Sudan. Even though Sudanese society is less fractured, Somalia can still use the Sudanese model for development. We have a huge potential for mining.
  6. The "filthy Isis fan boy" comment and your immediate inquiry about a name change.
  7. This is a serious matter, but I doubt anyone in government will pay attention to the crisis unfolding at the border with Kenya. I have been following this story for few days and it is very disturbing.
  8. Muse Bihi is a very clever man. This is a brilliant foreign policy campaign which costs next to nothing.
  9. Walakum Salam bestp1. Welcome to Somalia Online.
  10. Great discussion! Ilaahay ha u naxariisto inta dhimatay. For a while I was struggling to understand Villa Somalia's petty political intrigues around "mucaarad" and "mooshin". The hard rhetoric from government officials seemed misplaced because "mooshin" has been the bread and butter of Somalia parliamentarians for a decade. In fact, the MPs start working on their first motion to sack the government the night after presidential elections. I didn't understand what Kheyre's fixation was all about. We now know Villa Somalia felt very threatened by the opposition groups. My father used to say that our leaders never "win" when innocent lives are lost and there is bloodshed. He is right. It is a big loss for Farmaajo and his team. We shall see ...
  11. It is actually a fictitious clan border. The area you are referring to is in fact populated by Faroole's sub-clan.
  12. @Anisa_Hajimumin is honest, articulate and works hard.
  13. Eyl is an important city with an amazing weather due to its unique geographical locations. I am sure development will follow the completion of the Garowe-Eyl road which is one of the main projects the Puntland government is working on.
  14. Maashallah. What a great news. All the best to our sister Safia Aidid @Safferz Gabar iyo Caano.
  15. The city made great progress in such a short time. The fruits of peaceful coexistence.
  16. Suldaanka, how long will it take to nominate the cabinet after inauguration?
  17. Gooni waa nin macquul ah, laakiin mar mar bahasha wuu yara tuurtaa sida Oodweyne.
  18. Galbeedi, Awoowe that was a very insightful report on the Somaliland election saga.
  19. That is very interesting. I don't know if the driver would actually see above image as it looks on my computer. I would have to see it live.
  20. We often assume that the Somali crisis can be explicated through the prism of a singular event or a random trigger. Our propensity to perceive the crisis as either predictable/continuous or a combination of accidents and random events, is driven by our two-dimensional tendency to rationalize things as either orderly developments we can understand, or a completely random enigma / “Ilaahay qadartiis”. If one truly digs deep into our upheaval, you can’t but realize the societal collapse was a result of a complex mixture of socio-trends, predictable patterns, random and semi-random events. Before the initial triggers in 1990, one could argue there were some underlying socio-political and economic movements that should have been seen as creating or relevant to the collapse, but one should not ignore the myriad other contravening trends including government strategies in place to deter easy collapse of public order. In other words, the spontaneous collapse of the country at that particular period, was driven by a combination of random and predictable events. And that brings me to a possible solution! Instead of prescribing panacea based on a singular perceived illness, we should instead formulate socio-economic, political and cultural therapy to trigger a healing trend from the current starting point, knowing that the recovery still encompasses random downward trends, setbacks and mini-crisis, as long as the long-term trend achieves the broad positive objective of transforming the country towards a lasting stability. The following graph conveys my message more clearly.
  21. Ninkani ma reer Salaxley baa Awoowe?
