  1. Mooge, this kind of mentality like Buuraha will eventually cause the fragmentation of Somaliland. They are called Gaas Dhagoole. Does he know if a conflict comes AllAH forbid, the Awdal people won't have to go to Diridhaba like Snm, but they will eat dinner in their Zone five communities and cross here and sleep in their bed at the same night. There are 40 villages which are 10 kilometers from the border. No one can oppress or force people in this day and age. Eventually, if the people of Awdal decides that the Somaliland project is unsustainable and too heavy to bear than, it won't take much to get rid of it.
  2. On the issue of violence and war, it will only make the lives of neighboring communities difficult. If you have the power of the ballot box to change things, you don't need to resort violence. Another point is the people are inter connected (Dadku Way isku Tidcan yihhin). Let me give you an example: my Family from Borama, just told me that one of my sisters just got married to a guy who was attending Amoud University for the last four years for Business Management Degree. They informed me that they are moving to Burco ( The city of the foxy bunch of the east). Another one my Sisters is already married to a guy from Berbera and she told me they live just few hundred meters from Naasahablood mountain in the south west of Hargeisa. As Galbeedi tradition demands, I may even have to guard my language against the Foxy community since they are ( gacal and xidid) now. We the Diaspora are some how out of touch of the reality in our own regions. I believe the whole Somali community is one big Tol and Gacal.That is why I support a peaceful and prosperous Somaliland that must unite with other Somali brothers and once again build a strong, free and independent Somalia. You cannot fight with your own neighbors and find peace in far away places.
  3. Ciidan,Somaliland is not Hargeias and Borama. Some decentralization would go a long way, especially for taxation. Rather than use the old method of Wasaarado, give the money directly to the regions and let them spend on their needs.In every Democracy there are some form of equalization to distribute the taxes collected, otherwise we will end up the old Somalia of the seventies.
  4. Che, the wise man , I think i have yet to learn how to write one single sentences that says all. like you, but I will try. Thanks.
  5. The whole cabinet led by the prime minister was there. The guy was welcomed like a head of state. The speaker was also there. I thing it is a good start. why you guys wish for confrontation.
  6. Miyir, Saaxiib no body is noble among Maryooley, but there is a measuring stick on the issue of power and the threshold one must cross to attain it.. Some would go the extra mile including riding on the back of Sawaaxili or Ethiopian. I am not talking about "Jabhadihii". Look the Kacaan Community had the opportunity to bring Ethiopia or Kenya. They had the man power and geographical proximity on both, yet , they decided to exercise what ever Somali muscle they had rather than introduce a foreign power to a country that is desperate for Somali rule. Also throughout Somali history, I know a warlord will never bring peace or prosperity. I don't mind if you bring prof. Gaandhi to run it, at least he is a decent man.
  7. This problems are getting bigger by the day. Even the number two man in Wadani (the vice presidential candidate for the party) Muumin Seed said that there is hardship in Awdal, especially in the coastal area. He said there is no one single project initiated in the region. people do not mind if if citizens in Hargeisa or Burco build their lot with their ingenuity and business know how, what they resent is millions are donated by the international community and nothing is coming in their way. During Egal or Rayaale times, there wasn't much either but at least people were running their local government. Today not only the governor is from Burco but the majority of security and civil servants in the region are from outside Awdal. Also when you have half million people with no private commercial activity or government projects, or any other incentives , they will become desperate. Every thing they have is built by the people . From city water, to hospitals and roads. not only Awdal, but also the western regions like Gebiley, Wajaale and Kalabaydh are getting hopeless. At the same time I believe this Kulmiye guys could be defeated with ballot box. As long as the guy is coming to you for a vote, you can vote him out. I believe those disgruntled Awdalites must vote for the opposition.
  8. Mr Howd, unlike most Landers I always follow the money. The most important reason that most of the Somaliland youth are crossing the dangerous waters of the Mediterranean sea is for the green buck ( dollar). I don't know about you, but for me a million dollar is a lot of money.Most of these figures are announced in the media by the ministers themselves or are available . I know Djibouti and others receive large amount of foreign aid, in fact Djibouti gets money from multiple donors including Iran and Arab countries. The question here is, where the money is going. for 3 1/2 years they never built a hospital, School, Water wells or thirty kilometer of road. If you go to donors and ask money for sanitation, education and roads , you better use the money for those reasons.
  9. Look, the Gedo community, regardless of what dictator Siyaad Barre did are a nationalist community. In the south west of Somalia, they are the vanguards of the land. Without them, Kenya could have annexed Jubbaland long time ago.In the nineties they prevented Warlord Morgan, who was aided by Ethiopia to put up shop in Kismayo. Saaxiib, the issue is not Qabiil but the future survival of the country. We all know the era of the warlords is gone, how come a known warlord who was member of al-shabaab and companion of Aways is ruling the land. If Indhacade becomes a governor , all of you will call him names but not one of your own. These are the same guys who called Muuse Suudi, Al-Xaaji Suudi when he was against Abdul Qasim.
  10. I hate to disrupt the party but, this minister is misleading people or lying. What Somaliland lacks is loans from international lenders not foreign aid. It doesn't take much to figure out how much direct and indirect aid Somaliland is getting from donor countries, NGO's and United Nations Development Agencies. Since the July 2011, this government got direct aid from different countries. !- 28 millions from EU for water improvements. 2- 10 million from Kuwait for Airport improvements. 3- 19 million from UAE for road contractions. 4- 30 million from Britain, from European Somali fund 5- 4.8 million from government of Denmark. 6- 25 million from money raised by Turkey people for Somalia. 7- 1.8 million from US aid for local enhancement. 8- 2.9 million from U S for the training of anti terror force called RRu. 9- 6.5 million fro inter peace for the municipal elections. 10- 5 million for the prison management of Somali pirates captured in the high seas housed in Somaliland. Add that, the 119 international NGO' who are based in hargeisa. If each one of them spends $ 1.2 million a year, that will make it almost 140 million and that is Conservative estimate. All the pick up trucks and cars operated by the police is donated by the UNDP. Remember the elections has to be postponed because the money from Inter Peace and others was missing. give me a break. This numbers are conservative estimates because there are more money that comes from France and other places. How about giving that money three cities how will they look. or distribute to the cities of Somaliland for Sanitation, roads and education. Mr. lying minister please give me a break.
  11. During A/laahi Yusus's term, the idea of Six South West State was discussed both in Baidoa and Puntland. The revolution community in Gedo could be a junior partner, so is the Water Maal. By far, they are the largest in these region. If you combine The Jareer Wayne, D & M, Water Maal , Gedo community, and many others, they could easily form the super majority of the population. The biggest hurdle that can prevent is the foreign powers, especially the neighboring countries. Without their blessing, No Somali entity is capable of organizing and setting up any meaningful system without the help of their proxies. Constant quarrel (Isqabqabsi) makes it impossible. They need the Master with a big stick to put them in line. Do you think Prof. Gaandhi would have accepted a Jubba run by a warlord Madoobe? No. It is not up to the attendees of the "shir"in Baiddoa who will eventually decide the so called six states.
  12. I thought the Bay& Bakool guys are working on the formation of six federal states, including Jubada Hoose. There are people who believe that as soon as the Kenyan troops leave the land, the inter-river people and their allies will take over Jubba.
  13. Another lackey of the Kenyan leadership. Typical Somali stooge . They sound the same whether they are in Jigjiga or Nairobi.
  14. There is an opportunity for the Kenyans to kick Somalia when it is down, but the fact is Kenya is fragile itself. In 2002 when they were rioting against Daniel A. Moi , he said " look at Somalia, they are in great distress but they are surviving so nfar, but if similar things happen here you will die like a cattle". Their President is called in the world criminal court almost every few months in the aftermath of 2008 election. Within two weeks more than one thousand people died with machetes. Koffi Anan and the world saved them from more bloodshed. They are the most corrupt country in the world yet they want to annex Southern Somalia. We need leaders who could see the pig picture and put Kenya and these others in their place.
  15. The only strategy is Tribal. There are more people from inter river area , namely Bay & Bakool who are more in number than those you mentioned, who live in Boosaaso and Gaalkacayo. No one is talking about giving them any stake.
  16. Inaa Lilaahi Waina Ilaahi Raajicuun. Allah ha u naxariistoi. He was a Somali statesman
  17. Yes, we have been subdued. we were always poor but proud and free. We roomed the land unhindered by the colonial yoke.Think about the great Darwish, who in the turn of twentieth century told the mighty British, who were the superpower of the that era that " Dalka Malihid Anigaa Ku Idhi Dooroolaha e". Do the new generation of Sol dwellers know the meaning of "Dooro". Also ask them if they can name one or two Somali heroes of their time. I bet they will name C/laahi Yusuf, Siilaanyo and Caydiid.
  18. I do not mind them building regional government, but I am afraid they may put the Somali State issue in the back burner. Of course they produced warlords and others who were obstacles for peace, but it could be said the people of that region were vanguard of Somali sovereignty.
  19. Are you just waking up in 2014?, Kenya is what made Madoobe a King. how else would a former Al-shabbab "horjooge" and warlord could become a President. it has always been and still is, the only trick in the book to gain power in Somalia.
  20. Ministers visited Laascaanood without incident before. This warancadde guy just looks like Morgan and INdhacade. Rather than reassure the residents of Laascaanood for stability and peace, he is welding machine gun. By the way this is the guy who destroyed UDUB party because of his bad politics, then joined Wadani Party. He probably found his own dysfunctional party in Kulmiye.
  21. I do not see any legitimate reason to remove Tarzan. Those who did good things must be rewarded. He doesn't want any body else to shine in the limelight. The President is in the news almost everyday. Look what Tarzan did for the last 12 months. He introduced city traffic lights, night life and amenities; he brought former Waaberi stars to Mogadishu to lift the moral of the populace and openly challenged the Hag elders to rid militants among them. While the Tarzan caravan is moving forward, the Federal government is in quagmire since October. By the way, he is not the first successful leader eliminated by Qoslaaye. First he fired Dhagabadan, the most successful Somali commander in chief of the army for the last 25 years and replaced to incompetent commander, second he fired Diini the man who disrupted Shabaab workshops and brought the war to the extremists. This man captured more EIds( improvised explosive devices) than any one else. \ Why, Why?.
  22. Geedi is free from tribalism, He may even crush his own Unaka if they go against the state, but he has a lot of baggage. He was the first Somali leader along A/laahi Yusuf, who introduced foreign troops in Somali soil. In 1978 when A/laahi was asked " how can you join Ethiopia which we fought six months ago with our wounded solders still in hospital?. HEe said " Siyaad Barre Shaydaan Xataa vaan U soo Kaxaysan". Geedi has a lot of enemies, he will face fierce opposition, and eventually, he will spill a lot of blood. We don't him. Finally he is one of those leaders who will only come to power on the back of foreign tank, this time Kenyan tank.
  23. There are some good men who have achieved something before like, Godax Barre, who even fought Sheekh Shariif when he appointed a warlord governor for Hiiraan, and Abdiraxman Bayle is a successful technocrat. here some of his songs he composed in 2006: Qaylo Dhaan: A dialogue between the Somali Flag and Dr. Abdirahman Beileh By Abdirahman Beileh December 08, 2007 Print Friendly Dear Folks, I would like to share with you this short note as a preamble to the song attached below called Qaylo Dhaan. Qaylo Dhaan is a culmination of a long dialogue, over a period of about 14-15 years, between the Somali flag (the Blue one with the white star in the middle) and Dr. Abdirahman Beileh (myself). This dialogue was taking place, intermittently, during occasions of important international/regional meetings, conferences, and summits where high level national representatives from Africa and from relevant institutions, seated gracefully behind their national flags, debated national issues and promoted their own respective interests. The dialogue took place in these meetings when the two of us met representing two different entities, the Flag representing the Somali Republic and me representing the institution I work for (the African Development Bank). In these meetings, I often delivered statements and/or participated in discussions on behalf of the Bank. During the deliberations of each of these conferences, we would, once in a while, have eye contacts with the occasional nod or two signifying recognition of each other’s presence. The Flag would always be sitting there quietly and desolately, squeezed and barely noticeable, between the Rwandan delegation on the left, and that of South Africa on the right. You have to look hard to recognize its existence, especially as the seat is always empty. During the earlier years, say 1994 to just about 1999, various groups would show up, each one claiming the right to occupy the seat, with sometimes a scuffle or two between them over the seat, and in the process violently damaging both the flag and the chair. The organizers would then arrive, with security personnel, and decidedly order all groups to leave the premises. The flag would then be folded up and put away with the chair moved to a remote corner somewhere outside the debate area. This normally happened when such important meetings took place somewhere in the Horn. More recently, however, the look on the face of the flag and the eye contact have appeared noticeably much more hostile towards me than before, to an extent that it made me nervous at the podium delivering a prepared statement or during my participation in discussions. He often frowned at me with visible anger and disdain towards me. I first noticed this in the Food Security conference held by the African Ministers of Agriculture and Water in Libreville Gabon on November 28-29 2006. In this conference, I spoke about what the African Development can do to assist African countries in their efforts towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals on Food and Poverty reduction. The flag’s gaze at me was so intense that I had to disguise my discomfort by taking frequent sips of water with short coughs! I succeeded to restrain myself and the meeting was concluded without any physical contact between us. I occasionally concluded that this was harassment and that I should perhaps draw it to the attention of the organizers. But then, the better part of me commanded that I gave more credence to our blood ties, and thus I should refrain from taking any action against Him. After the conclusion of this meeting, all delegations participating in the Libreville Conference moved to Abuja Nigeria, where Heads of State Summit was convened on December 4th and 5th 2006 to deliberate on and endorse the outcome of the Libreville Ministerial meeting. There we met again! But this time, because of the expectation of a Head of State, the Flag was mightier in size and more imposing. In addition, the Somali delegation (supposedly led by the head of state) was seated very close to the podium and the high table. As I took a position at the high table, I immediately faced the all-imposing blue flag with the big white, and very bright star, right on my left shoulder looking at me as more disdainful to me as ever. This session was not a very productive one for me but, at least, I made an effort to concentrate on what I had to say. Within this session, I decided that as soon the session broke for coffee, I would politely approach Him and ask him what sort of problems He had with me! So I did! as soon as the Chairman, adjourned the session, I got up and directly walked up to Him, very nervously, not knowing what His reaction would be towards me. I quietly shook his hand and hastened to assure Him that I was not there to fight Him like the others in the past, but simply came to say hello! As I sat down with him, we were joined by two ladies who later on told us they were refugees living in Abuja but recruited temporarily to assist in the organization of the meeting. We all talked and confirmed our origins to each other all speaking in the language: iska warrama? Waa nabade idinkuna? Alla mahaddii and so on and so forth.. I then said “ But, Flag, we have been meeting over the years without talking to each other”…” I am happy that we now started talking to each other”…. “Let me just ask you…” And this song then started expressing these feelings. The ladies also took part in the song!!

Baarlamaanka waxa ku bwaajib ah in uu xaaladan cusub ee keentay in 37 maalmood qaadato in la soo xulo wassiro , ay thay mid uu keenay madaxweynaha oo farabaas ku haya Raiisuwasaarha. sidaa darteed hadii ay dhacdo un kooxdiisu olole ka bilaabaan baarlamaanka , waa in labadaba is raacaan. AQoslaye ha ogaado in uusan ka hari doonin markaan.
  25. Some of these issues could have been handled by a technical committees instead of Ministers talking for the sake of talking. Did you hear that they do not even have organized agenda yo discuss. All they need is two capable men to sit and push the agenda, but there are no trust among the Somaliand ministers. They don't allow the foreign minister to conduct the negotiations, that is why Hirsi is the one leading.
