  1. A member of Parliament can not fire another.

    Unless they are convicted of a crime, it is all illegitimate political move.

    Haday xeer hoosaad jebiyeen waa laga hakin karaa hawsha baarlamaanka dhexdiisa ka socota, lamase eriyi karo.

    Where is @Old_Observer?

    We need that guy now.

    Thanks to new drone technology, it will be tough for TPLF to wage a long guerrilla war. Yet, the would be seventh king of Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed has to tackle now the Amhara issue if he want to rule Ethiopia. 

    I can't imagine how TPLF had wasted the opportunity to dismantle Ethiopia. THey even attacked Eritrea in 1998, their only exit option.

  3. A large segment of this group didn't vote for Farmaajo last time in 2017. Mahdi Guuleed is a rising star.

    Now I know Farmaajo is going to win.

    It was widely cultivated in Somaliland in the eighties, especially Arabsiyo region. As a young high school boy , I want to Arabsiyo, just 20km from Hargeisa,  with a friend of mine and spent few days chewing fresh Khat from the farm.

    Why send millions of hard earned dollars to Ethiopia and Kenya?

  5. Cajiib.

    Waar tolow muxuu gabankani damacsan yahay.

    I heard some unverified news that the largest share holder of SomOil company,  which Khayre used to run before being appointed prime minister, is a Russian oligarch based in Moscow.

    I think this Khayre is probably working for his former boss Hassan Sheikh. He doesn't care about being elected, but he might want to get back to his former business and install a friendly government in Mogadishu. It was under Hassan Sheikh the so called Somoil was arranged.

  6. Proff. Afyare Cilmi had summarized well the main contentious points.

    The problems is that these days Somali politicians never agree on any thing without the being ordered or pushed by the international community.

    1- Technical committee members should be appointed by the federal government based on geography. at the same time they should be independent and neutral members. They should not be holding any current government position.

    2- In peaceful regions , people should elect their representatives in their districts. People like Madoobe who failed to liberate one single district beside KIsmaayo should not be rewarded to have a say if people of Garbaharey want to elect their own representatives. The same thing goes with Jawhar.

    Certainly the people of Hiiraan got a bad deal in terms of Hir-Shabbelle. How can you make Jawhar, just 60 miles from Mogadishu to be the capital he capital of the region? Heck, those from Jawhar have already near the real capital. The people of Hiiraan were cheated when they told them to be take the leadership and give the capital to Unaka. 

    It is one of the reasons we should scrap the two or more state criteria for a federal state. I want Hiiraan, Sool, Sanaag, Awdal, Gedo and Lower Shabbeele to have their own lone standing state.

    3- Somaliland delegates should follow the way it was held last time. Neither Farmaajo nor Cabdi Hashi should appoint the technical committees. By the way, what right does this Cabdi Hashi guy has to appoint the Somaliland committees? He has one single vote in the senate and when election is called his position doesn't exist anymore.

    4-The so called 30% women is none issue if they had already agreed to that quota. I do believe that 30% is too much, and should be reduced to 20%. No country in the world puts aside that many seats for female members.

    50 should proceed just like last time.

    Here you go folks. 

    The only debatable issue is #2.



    Brother MMA, 

    This is a great memory for your family and the Somali nation. Now I understand your outlook n Somalia.

    This were the old good times. It was the time no blood was shed for power or politics., 

  8. Here we have ten or men from one single clan running for president. "Mudisho anaga leh" must be defeated in a fair and free election.

    Waar baroorta iska daaya oo doorashada gela. 

    Furthermore, the election commission doesn't decide for the election outcome. It is up to 325 men and women who are probably bought and sold by the candidates.If the government can not even appoint election commission, then what is its role ? just a bystander as Muuse Suudi demands illogical things.

    Let us see how Kenya reacts. How a foreign army serving under Amisom confront a Somali army going to its border.

    Folks, the era of separatism is probably over in this day and age. Armenian separatists with 30 years presence in the so called republic of Arthsak was taken over by the legitimate owners of the land , Azerbaijan. The Kurds in Iraq by now realized that despite the 92% referendum result, they can not dismantle Iraq. THe TPLF had plans for their own state but never declared openly in this war.

    Even MUuse Biixi is defending his cousin Cabdi Xaaji of the Somali senate to have influence in Somalia. The future is more integration in the horn of Africa than separation.

    P.s. The TPLF cyber warriors are accusing Somalis trained in Eritrea to being part of the war.

    I met a Tigray guy yesterday and he said they have captured Somali soldiers in the north. THere is probably this narrative of the TPLF saying that they are fighting Ethiopia, ERitrea, Somalia and UAE.

    The TPLF are hated by  everyone. For 27 years they didn't cultivate any meaningful relationship among other ethnics. Now they keep talking about others flowing their lead and leaving EThiopia, yet when they had the opportunity to help others leave Abyssinia, they did the opposite thing. Having despots and tyrants in Somali regions and other places had helped them stay in power, but they never gave the Somali people any freedom to have a say in the future. I even heard that Cabdi Illey asked them in 2017 to allow Somalis to prepare for an exit. THe TPLF thought they would control Abiy just like they did in Hailemarium Daselegn.

    In 1998, they even attacked Eritrea, their only exit to the sea in the north. Even the Oromo agitating against Abiy just watched as the TPLF is invaded.

  11. By the way, yesterday Abiy Ahmed addressed the Ethiopian parliament and spoke without reservations. The speech had shown why Abiy had decided to crush the TPLF once and for all. He said that for almost a year he was prime minister just in name only. He narrated how they even had the keys to his office, how they disarmed his own security detail. He feared for his life with his own residence and decided to send his wife and children to America. He said, " they planed foreign visits and my travels without my knowledge , and they used to tell me when and where to go". He said Hailemarium Deselegn was a puppet .

    He said, they put him under full time surveillance from the moment he left his house to his office. He said, they almost succeeded to kill him twice. He talked about how he felt liberated When the TPLF leadership went to Makale in September to organize their local election. That was when he replaced them and openly challenged.

    In conclusion, he claimed having being a hostage of the TPLF for almost two years. He spoke like an angry man to justify the war.

    Anyway, with the Oromo leadership in jail since the spring, Abiy could only trust the Amhara. Some Ethiopian Somalis believe that if the Somalis and Oromo do not support him , he could be a hostage for Amhara. 

  12. Regional integration will benefit the whole region. In Ethiopia, almost everyone including the opposition believes economic integration. I will be the the first to welcome economic integration, especially common currency for the horn of Africa. It is a logical step. In fact, it isthe only way to compete with the larger economies of the world. 

    Furthermore, it might eliminate by default the illogical idea of separation in Somaliland and other places.

    Yet, a deal by despots with  zero democratic foundation might not last too long. Among these nations, the only democratically elected leader is the Somali president Farmaajo. The Arab league is almost 80 years old, and yet has to achieve peace and co-existence among its members, let alone trade. Each member is threat to the other. The greatest threat to Somali state today is emanating from the Arab league whom we are a member for almost 50 years. Even in the eighties, the biggest threat of Somali state after Ethiopia were Yemen and Libya.


    Let these despots in Djibouti and Eritrea hold elections before they jump on economic integration.

  13. If this true, then Abiy has achieved a miracle . 

    The 100,000 Tigray forces with a massive Ethiopian weapons in their possession just folded in just three weeks. 

    With the Sudanese, Eritrean and Djibuoti border closed, Tigray insurgence will be impossible. 

    Certainly, the TPLF has been lying about their arms and intentions. Unbeknownst to us there could be divisions between the Tigray militia and leadership.

    We all hope that Abiy will not turn Ethiopia to the same TPLF dictatorship with Unitarian system where Amhara rules with impunity.




  14. "Ethiopia National Security Adviser Gedu Andargacho met w pres Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo in Mogadishu".

    The national security adviser is Amhara, so is the deputy premier Makonen, who is touring Africa.  president Zowde , an Amhara lady was in South Africa 

    This is a government of  Amhara by  the Amhara and for the Amhara.

    The chances of Somali Galbeed autonomy,let alone freedom is in danger. Any far sighted Somali should never ever support an Amhara agenda. They are hiding behind a fake Abyssinia. In this war, a Tigray victory, or even a surviving of Tigray entity in the north is the best interest of the Oromo, Somali and others.

    I don't know if you guys heard, but Eritrean and Ethiopian navies will be united and based in Assab, Eritrea.  with help of the French, Ethiopia will have a navy that might face the future Somali navy and Turkey in the region.This new dictator in the making in the horn must be stopped. Abiy had betrayed everyone and will sell Somalis in a New York minute.

    Somalis, be ware of what you wish.

    On the Somali front, TPLf was aware in the weak position they were against Somalia, if Somalai decides to help Ethiopian ethnic rebels, so they tried to install Ethiopia friendly leadership in Somalia. It was the Islamic courts who changed every thing.Now we need a new strategy against the new despot who want to be a king.

    You gotta admire how the Feds are able to control what's going in Tigray

    It is astonishing how Abiy has made a total blackout in the age of internet. He is feeding us. He tells Makale resident to stay inside to avoid the tank and the artillery shells that will be falling on them next day. The war is going on even around the cities they captured.

    Again , this war has just started. 

    Abiy has no choice but to continue. If stops, the Amhara generals will finish him off.



  16. THere is a lot of propaganda in this war. 

    The Ethiopian army did not move even a kilometre in the southern front for almost a week. Their own spokesman admitted about the TPLF " Blowing bridges and digging roads".

    It is true that the Ethiopia forces had advanced from the north and captured some major towns, but they are far from going to Makale. An Amhara speaking Somali told me that after the big causality of the Ethiopian forces in the south especially the Amhara militia whose dead officers were brought to Addis,  Abiy tried to open negotiations, but the Amhara generals refuse and demanded five more weeks.

    Abiy Ahmed is in a big dilemma. If he accepts mediation the Amhara officers might even eliminate him. Since he can not trust Oromo the only people that suround him are Amhara.

    • Haha - That was funny. You made me laugh! 1

  18. In 2004, close to a dozen men from Mogadishu, decided to campaign against one major  candidate, then president C/laahi Yusuf (AHN) in Nairobi. Before the election, I didn't realize the composition of candidates. After the conclusion of the first round , I was amazed how a close to dozen men from the same region including president C/qasin SAlaad Hassan couldn't agree to one , two or three candidates to go against , Cabdilaahi Yusuf, the man of the hour.

    president C/qaasim Salaad, C/laahi, Ahmed Cadow, Huseen Aideed, MOhamed Qanyare (AHN)  Engeneer C/laahi Cadow (AHN), Muuse Suudi Yalahow and other had agreed to run against C/laahi Yusuf. The fragmented Mogadishu coalition each got a minority of  the vote and at the end made secret deals with the most serious candidate C/laahi Yusuf.

    Now, in 2020,  I see the same pattern from the greedy Mogadishu politicians .The list is long:  Xasan Cali Kheyre,  former presidents Xasan Sheekh Maxamuud and  Shariif Sheekh Axmed,  Cabdiraxmaan Cabdishakuur, Cabduqaadir Cosoble Cali, Daahir Maxamuud Geelle, Musstaf Sheekh Cali Dhuxulow, Cabdikariin Xuseen Guuleed, Shariif Xasan Sheekh Aadan. I know some of them are just vying to get a position from the winning candidate or those they might consider to be the heavy weight candidate. Yet, it is very strange that even the lieutenants of certain candidates are running probably to boast their  boss. For example, Mustafe Dhuxulow, a lieutenant of Hassan Khayre and C/kariim Guuleed, a Hassan Sheikh man,  are probably running as surrogates of their bosses while pretending to be a candidate. 

    This list looks exactly the one I saw 16 years ago. The only big deference is that this time around, they all are pretending to be friends and political allies. Non of them is willing to sacrifice his position for the team. Shariif Ahmed, the man who publicly proclaimed to be armed just in case the bullets fly,  is not willing to give up his candidacy to Hassan Sheikh. In 2012, all the 13 candidates agreed to join together and pick one candidate to face Shariif Ahmed. THey all agreed in the early stages of the campaign, but when the rubber hit the road, Hassan Sheikh refused and left the group after getting the badly needed cash from Qatar, thanks to Fahad Yaasiin, the current intelligence chief.

    THere are four men from the Mogadishu (Unaka Iska Leh) group just like 2012. Yet, the idea to present a  crowded race to the public was intended to send indirect  messages to the larger Somali public, especially to the naive and gullible.  After the 2012 election, a good proff. who was helping one of the candidates told me that everyone among the members of the parliament agreed that this time around the president ought to be from Unaka. This conclusion was made mainly through fear and insecurity from those who hail outside the capital. 

    That was the main reason four members from UNaka: Shariif Ahmed, Hassan Sheikh, C/laahi Cosoble and C/raxman Baadiyow were among the four of the six who got the largest vote among the candidates. While others were hiding for security reason, they were campaigning among the members in their own turf. That reason alone should have forced Somalils to hold the election in a secure city like Garoowe or Cadaado. Insecure Mogadishu is nothing but a political advantage for some. 

    Now in 2020, I am hearing the same indirect messaging that promotes a similar outcome.

    Madaxwrnaha markaan waxa iska leh Reer hebel.

    THose of us who know better are not buying this propaganda from greedy Mogadishu boys. Few years ago, the only Somali group ready to challenge this false entitlement were the Puntlanders. This time around they are ridding comfortably in the wagon driven by Unaka waiting for the left overs. 

    Last month C/laahi Deni showed his political skills and made a drive through in the Farmaajo political business hatched in Dhuusamareeb one and two. He along Ahmed Madoobe single handily dismantled what ever was cooked for months in central Somalia. He was feted in Mogadishu, yet there is no major candidate from Puntland. Everyone is waiting for the Unaka crown that may or might not replace Farmaajo.

    If Farmaajo is skillful like late preisdent C/laahi Yusuf, he would tell each candidate something soothing  in their ears to sway  them in the second round of the vote. In 2004, both Qanyare, Huseen Caydiiid and others joined C/laahi Yusuf in the second round.

    Despite my prediction, anything can happen between now and the election day. This year of 2020 is a very strange one with many surprises. Who would have thought Khayre and Ina C/shakuur to be political bed flows. If Judging by history is any guide, we might even get a new man with a white horse anointed by the gulf without the public notice.

    My hope Farmaajo 2 Unaka 0.

  19. The way rhis war was waged will never bring Tigray back to Ethiopia again. Abiy cut electricity even from the civilians for total punishment while claiming to be saving the Tigray people. I am waiting Afar state, Tigray state and others to declare their independence just like Bosnia, Slovenia and Croatia.

    Furthermore, in terms of messaging, I was amazed  how the Amhara and Abiy people were so incompetent in their messaging and public relations campaign. They even accused the WHO chief of procuring arms for the TPLF.

    One more thing, can the diaper carrying wet boys in Villa-Somalia be quite for a minute and watch the ugly Ethiopian circus?
