  1. The hackers are not Somalis. It is a sophisticated group of right wingers targeting Somalis. Sheikh Dancasar doesn't have that ability to hack Twitter.
  2. Today Sool people lack real politicians or leaders who can take their case. Cali Khaliif was the last one and he was banished by Muuse Biixi. Rather than deal with Galaydh he found losers like Ina Koore. All Reer Sool need is a real leader that can lead,
  3. Xaaji, C/laahi Yusuf was the one who chased Dahir Rayaale to Adhicadeeye and beyond. Everything crumbled once the tough colonel left to Mogadishu, especially when the Reer Bari man Cade Muuse took over.
  4. We all know the Somaliland project in the east was always fragile. It was maintained through bribes and divide and rule. If the locals unite, it will be over within weeks. The problem the Garoowe government is corrupt and will not lift a finger to help them.
  5. I like the young journalists of Somaliland. They always ask the hard hitting questions. WE all know there are no working institutions in Somaliland. If there is peace , it is the result of tribal peace. The tribes cooperate and arrest their criminals and the police is just there for show of force just in case. The best the local police does is subdue conflicts among tribes ( Qabaa'ilka ayey kala dhex galaan). The idea of Puntland intervening is a false hope. They fully cooperate with Somaliland to keep the status quo. No change is expected especially the Reer Bari leadership which dealing Somaliland under the table just like Faroole. I repeat, Kulmiye people and Biixi are masters of dirty tricks. THey hired outlaws to murder people between Dila and Gabiley in 2009 to create tribal conflict and make Gabiley switch to Siilaanyo, they did in Sanaag to create hostility between east and west burco, especially to discourage anyone from east Burco to vote Waddani. While there are some clan revenges and others, I do believe Kulmiye is involved. Most of the young that were murdered are members of the opposition. in conclusion, as Che said, these people do not to be part of these project. The dilemma is if Sool goes away it will be a project confined within Togdheer , W.Galbeed and Awdal. in other words, the end of the project.
  6. Local militia could be the real game changer in Laascaanood. It was the local militia led by Xaabsade that took over Laascaanood and handed Somaliland without firing a bullet. THere was no Somaliland presence in Laascaanood for 16 years until the Xaabsade militia moved from Puntland and switched sides. Also, remember Somaliland police, especially the RRU are typical Cabdi Iley LIyuu police. They are trained to shoot people. This the real order that comes from the interior ministry. In Hargeisa they shot dead 7 people in very small demonstration in small Xaafad. If things keep going like this expect big changes.
  7. It is easy. Dirty politics of Kulmiye to disinfranchise the people of Laascaanood and deny the opposition to gain a large portion of the vote. I have seen this game in Sanaag few years ago when simple clan issue was used for political purposses.
  8. I hope you are right. It is unthinkble that assassinations and murders couldn't be resolved in a medium size town like Laascaanood. This isn't a huge meteropole with large population. Either the city leadership is incompetent and corrupt or those who supposed to guard are doing the killing. May God save the people
  9. This town needs freedom and peace. It became the deadliest city, second only to Mogadishu in terms of people targeted for killing. The Somaliland security forces seem to be supervising the killings of the people. It is all about sinster politics. We all remember the Sanaag clan war sponsored by the government which raged for years until it achieved its goal. A stable Laascaanood voting as they wish could change the balance of power, and that is bad for the Hargeisa clique.
  10. One thing former American president Donald Trump tought as is what he called the " Fake News". Events might not reflect as they have been reported by the media somethimes. The hard hitting investigative journalism of last century is dead. For example 90% of Somali Youtube chanels are all fake news. Some will show you just pictures and narrate things without any facts. Now the latest news from Mogadishu is even more fake than they apear. The God forsaken city is totally shut down for hours due to the arraival Djibouti despot Omar Geelle. It is not only the road leading from the airport to the Villa, but the whole neighborhood and the green zone (Baghdad style) is closed from public, motor vehicles, Bajaaj and even donkeys carrying firewood. We have been told that Omar Geelle the great promotor of Somali language and culture is in town to inaugurate the opening of accademy for the promotion of Somali language. For those of us who know one or two things about Geelle and Djibouti, this is nothing but a well thought strategy to mislead the guilible residents of that town and take advatage of the Somali leadership trying to gain some badly needed ftreinds. Now, in order to refute this claim of Omar Geelle promoting the Somali language, let me present my reasons: 1-The Somali language isn't the official language of the Republic of Djibouti nor its working language. The official working language of Djibouti is French. People could speak Anfari, Somali, Arabic and so on , but the official language of the state is French. 2-Djibouti doesn't have news papaers written in Somali language. It has a government paper called Le Nazione which published in French. Why a government prestending to promot Somali language couldn't publish one single news paper in Somali? Compare that to Hargeisa where half dozen papers are published dialy or weekly. There is Jamuuriya, Damal, Haatuf and others in Hargeisa streets every day or weekly. In Somaliland, huge book fairs are presented in Hargeisa and Borama every year which attracts thousands of people. Add that to the poets, composers and other singers who make our language rich. None of that exixts in Djibouti today. Years ago, there used to be some composers and playwright community members in Djibouti, but today, they either dead or are in exile. 3- Djibouti schools do not teach their children Somali language as a second language. There is no opportunity for Djibouti youth to master their language and literature in their schools. The people of Djibouti has rich original Somali , but that is lost in the city, and there is no venue to teach the literature of the language. All these and many other reasons indicate that despot Geelle has no intention of promoting the Somali language. In terms of culture, he doesn't hold any deep rooted Somali culture or tradition. He forced his son in law to divorce his dauther by force against tradition and Islamic faith while welcoming foreiners to wed among his family. Compare this to Jaale Siyaad (Allah ha u naxariiste). One of the sons of Siyaad Barre (Hassan Rubeti) who went to scholarship in eastern Europe, had befreinded and marreied a Checkoslavakia woman. When he came back to home and told Jaale Siyaad, he told him: Waar gabdhihii Soomaaliyeed oo dalka wax guursada raba miyaad naag ajaanib ah guursanaysaa?, waar aniga la i odhan maayo madaxweynaha wiilashiisii baa gabdhihhi Soomalida iska dhaafay oo Ajaanib guursanaya. Wiilasheyda qudbadii Jaale Siyaad ayaan u jeediyaa: waaryaada, naag Ajaanib ha ii keenina xataa haday Pakistani iyo Carab tahay. anigu gabadh Soomaaliyeed wax aanan ahayn kuma ducaynayo. He is doing all these for public relations and propoganda purposes to promote his family and pave the way for one of his children for power. He is overweight, sick and old, which means he will be trasnfering power soon to one of his childrens. In order to make the transition easy for the coming illegal action, he is building fake bridges among the Somali leaders, especially the southern Somalis who probably know nothing beyond Mogadishu. It is difficult for someone born and raised in southern Somalia to understand, Djibouti, Sanaag or Jigjiga. So, now Mogadishu has invited Geelle to promote a language that doesn't exist in his own back yard. For that is another fake news. WAxa wadada laagu jeexayaa warlord Sadiq John and company.
  11. B. X did he get paid? I would give Afwork what ever amount he asks. Who in the world would train 5000 men for Somalia? not even Turkey. The visit of Ruto to Asmara shows the influence of Afwork in the horn is growing. Anyway, this is a good news.
  12. I don't like these pictures and these so called ambassadors rooming from Kismaayo to Baidoa, Why not deal with the federal government instead of these big fish in small pounds trying to bigger than who they are. Marba mid baa madaxa loo salaaxaya.
  13. This week on my way to work, I put the dial on the local CBC news hour to listen the " World Report" early in the morning. THe lead story in the news was a report from CBC veteran and foreign correspondent Margaret Evans sending her dispatch from Dollow, Ethiopia just across the border from Somali Dollow. She explained the plight of people leaving Al-shbaab controlled area to seek help across the border. Almost every day, the international media, the UN Security Council and the world is talking about 3 million Somalis on the edge of starving. There is a huge billboard in the highway here in my town where Care Canada is advertising for donations with pictures of Somali wowen with clouful " Shalmado. Yet, no Somali leader is talking about this. Rather than seek help and fundraise for the famine hit Somalia, they go to a lavish wedding in neighboring country and enjoy while the world is watching. If they were moral and decent people they would have fundraised at the wedding and donate the money to the needy. Waar ma sanad la qooqo ayaa la joogaa. Why the wedding of former criminal and a gang who was deputized by his clans more important than millions of Somalis. We are in a war and famine (Col iyo Abaar) plus the Europe sponsored chaos of the " Gender laws" in the parliament. Furthermore, they go to Djibouti and chat with useless foundation wasting money for few parasites who couldn't gain employment any where else. This actions alone would have impeached this president. Waar iimaanka Ilaahay idinka qaadye Ummadda gaajaysan ee colka iyo Abaaru haleeleen u gargaara.
  14. This people live off of the land. They are not city dwellers, but rural communities and small towns people who cultivate their crops and raise some livestock to survive. Furthermore, there are 400 villages within the South West region which is much larger than any region in Somalia. Rural and locals are the people national governments supposed to protect. They don't have passports to flee to foreign countries or connections with the ruling class to get access for their basic needs. If their crops and livestock dies they will be next..Gedo has serious drought, but they are close to the Kenyan border where most of the relieve NGO's are based. Yet, the Gedo drought is serious also, especially in Dollow and Baardheere.
  15. The biggest loser will be at the end HSM. He cleared the air or any doubt about his involvement of foreign powers to gain power. He had ben paid and bought by too many players. The QAt dealers, UAE, Djibouti, and many hidden local business people. Minister Faqi proclaimed the other day that he want to target those who are bankrolling Al-shabaab, especially the Bakaraha business people, but HSM told him to back off. He tells everyone the same thing with a short memory. The UAE had taken the coastal area of Puntland in the name of development. They spent five years hauling dirt and stones in coastal Berbera, but found nothing meaningful, now they are trying their luck in Bari, Puntland and HSM would say nothing. Furthermore, Somaliland won't even talk to him by throwing tough conditions and putting indirect pressure to him. He got plenty of time to achieve something, yet by this summer we shall see if his agenda is settling down. It is hard to judge now because there are no way to figure out progress except the war in Hiiraan which seems to favor the locals.
  16. First , let me apologize for misquoting Dhagaxtuur. If his assertion was about this newly wed lady being in Zina," Jareer baa fuulayey" that is a mistake and would like to correct that. This girl is innocent from any slander. It is the father who used and abused her for political reasons. I was referring to the other lady married to a Catholic Tommy who wears huge cross in public and according to Sharia, unless he becomes Muslim , it is illegal. Any way, I know it is sensitive topic, and I for one have always respected the honor of Somali women regardless of where they come from. What we all object is, here in Djibouti, through this wedding the Somali people will robbed in a daylight. Djibouti had been using the Somali conflict as a cash cow. Before 911, in the year 2000, Geelle couldn't pay the salary of teachers and public servants. There was huge exodus of the middle class to Canada, US and Europe. Suddenly , the war on terror brought unexpected cash. In the name fighting Somali pirates, European, Asian (Japanese and Chinese) and Americans set up their bases in Djibouti. If Somali becomes peaceful, hundreds of millions will disappear.
  17. Tani waa Allah ka cabsadadii Soomaalida oo weliba dadku isticmaalaan markay wax dulmayaan amd ay wax daboolaayan.. I know Samafal is a good man judging by his writings here, but on this subject, he is covering for an evil family called " Reer Geelle Batal" who are morally corrupt by any means. Folks, this is not a normal family and this is not a regular wedding. It is the union of gangs and mafia. I might even add it is illegal marriage according to Sheikh C/raxman Bashir who was not only a knowledgeable Sheikh but also served as a judge in Djibouti courts. Here is how it all started: In 2011, Omar Geelle decided to change the constitution limiting the presidential terms of two consecutive six years. The opposition which was well organized at the time begun huge demonstration where people were killed and many arrested while the leader of the main opposition Dahir Ahmed Farah exiled to France earlier. The opposition boycotted the election, but the agitation and the demonstrations continued. In order to calm the opposition and especially the clan of the opposition leader Mr. DAF, he decided to recruit a young technocrat who was the cousin of the opposition leader. He was elevated quickly from a junior minister to the minister of health and then Gelle proposed to make him his son in law. Also Omar Geelle has signaled to the opposition clans that Dr, Jamac Cilmi will be his heir apparent, the next president of Djibouti. He even assembled the opposition clan elders and told them about his plans. In the meantime, Geelle begun to dismantle the opposition and divide them through bribes, clan lines and jailing the rest. By 2015 he consolidated power. Dr. Jamac started to organize and prepare for the next election to replace Geelle and begun a coalition. The Geelle inner family circle objected the future transfer of power and decided instead to keep the power among the children of Omar Geelle. Then a gossip started saying the Dr. Jamac had an affair with another woman, and through the Djbiouti intelligence the gossip spread within the public quickly. Yet, both Jamac and his wife Haybado rejected the gossip and stayed together. The mother in law of Dr. Jamac demanded divorce but he rejected. Then one night Geelle called the minister to the palace alongside general Sakariye, the army chief and the intelligence boss and a government judge. When the poor fellow showed up Geelle demanded Jamac to pronounce the divorce or else. He refused , but was threatened and eventually forced to divorce. After few weeks he was fired as a minister. Now, there won't be any power transfer or even the chance of outsiders coming to power. Geelle and his wife are preparing one of their sons or dauthers to take power. The drama didn't stop there. While Geelle had dissolved a legitimate marriage of family, he welcomed another one initiated in a Paris night club. An Ivorian night club bouncer called Tommy Tayaro became the boy friend of the dauther of Omar Geelle. After while she brought him and married her in Djibouti. Tommy is a Catholic by faith and Geelle blessed this marriage. The daily gossip in Djibouti about Tommy making erotic movies about Djibouti women and his other adventures are not only the tales in Djibouti but in west Africa and Ivory coast. If you just open Djibouti Facebook sites they are full of his globetrotting and womanizing escapades. Reports of the drug consumption is also on front pages just few weeks. Yet Geele does nothing. So, Mr. Samafal when Dhagaxtuur talks about the illegal ( Wuu Fuulay) he has basic Sharia foundation in terms of the marriage between Tommy and Faaduno Geelle. Dissolving a legal marriage and welcoming an illegal one also isn't new in this family, it began more than 40 years ago, but will leave it there now. Just like the Hollywood celecberties who flow different rules, this family isn't not only strange to the average Somali and Djibouti families who are people with great Somali traditional and cultural ties. Besides , being a gangster with high end cars and flushing jewelry doesn't make one honorable. In southern Italy their is a silent code among the mafia and the public called Omerta. No one will speak if they witness a crime. Some of us, who live in the great white north of Canada will certainly speak and say how the emperor has no clothes. Another illegal action is the former warlord Muuse Biixi showing up and claiming to be the maternal uncle while her own family is sitting there. The ugly Biixi is trying to borrow a page from Geele and rule 14 years or more but that won't happen in Somaliland. Omar Geelle said, " Hassan Sheeikh Buuro iyo Darbiyo waa weyn ayuu jebiyey". Folks, this is nothing but a transaction and the whole sale of " Somali Maandeeq". I would conclude that " There is no honor among thieves". Tilka beynal ayaan. Gangs, enjoy while you can. Nothing lasts for ever.
  18. The poor kid was flowing orders. The Somali young men are dying either as cannon fodders for Al-shbaab, manning checkpoints for warlords and dying even defending hotels and the elite as body guards. It is tough to be a young man in Somalia. Everyone else is cashing in except the unemployed youth.
  19. unreliable reports indicate the president himself was evacuated to Halane last night. reasonable security could only be achieved through competent institutions. Hiring ones clansmen won't protect the president. In his last term, a hired mule got paid $2000 by his brother in law and facilitated for Al-shbaab gunmen to enter villa Somalia and kill people inside the Masjid located in the Villa. the attack happened before the Jimca prayer while president HSM was in his bedroom. He was very lucky. THe man who brought in the gunmen was a close member of the presidents sub clan. If clans could resolve things, why the people of Mogadishu are chasing their tails for 30 years. Mr. President, hire the best people to the job and make them accountable.
  20. MMA, I was quite for the last few months to give a chance and opportunity for the new boys to change course. WE have all noticed the tribe masqurading as the national government, we have witnessed unelected tribal chavanists like Sanblooshe leading the way while the defence minister is treated like a school boy. The foreign minister heiling from Gaeoowe had paid a hefty cash for the election of HSM. He doesn't speak the language of the Gulf Arabs where HSM put his foreign policy to be managed, nor he speaks English or French. He bought the post with cash and must ride the plane sometimes when Somalia, more than ever, needed an expereinced foreign minister to handle the arms embargo file, the future widtdrawl of the foreign army which is not anymore in the discussions thanks to the new tribal army. When the UN security counsil met two weeks ago about the arms embargo, there wasn't even a debate. It was unaninmous no questions asked.: keep the arms embargo until further notice. THey got the army chief, the intelligence chief, the interior, and the power of the state, yet they are acting like a group of people under seige from other tribes. Furthermore, Puntland is acting like a seperate state while allowing foreign armies to control alomst all of the Puntland coast in the name false development. THe prime minister quite and getting alone with HSM which is fine, but a cabinet shuffle is a must. No president can handle the major national issues by himself while dispatching few clan allies. This government looks like a regional government tasked to work among clans.
  21. --The dead are left in the streets and might decompose unless there is a relative or someone identifies. --A young man will stab you at the dat light just to grab your Smart Phone. --A businessman would target you for killing just by speaking out against their crimes and injustice. --There is a bombing as usual, but now home invasion and wanton killings became normal --Most of government owned parked maintained for good neglcted or destryoed in the name transfering the property for unkjown businessmen. --The smell of decomposing human body is becoming regular in Kaaraan, Boondheere , Hawlwadaag, Hodan and many area controlled by those affiliated with the president. --people are leaving the capital in droves either to Turkey, Nairobi or western countries. These are some of the shocking statement narrated by a family member who came from Mogadishu just last week. She had been traveling to MOgadishu back and forth since 2014, yet, I have never seen her disappointed and hopeless until this time. She is someone who prays a lot and when I asked her about " The mercy of Allah and peace" coming to that land some day, she seemed hopless and answered, " how could the mercy of Allah will touch a land whose soil is socked with blood of the innocent, where injustice, wanton murder, leck of basic human morality and criminalty is as normal as the air you breath?". You can't trust your own neighbors. I was praying and reading Qur'aan when one of our neighbors wore mask and tried to rob us. When I said, why would would you rob a 65 years old grandma with no money? I hope the Qur'aan I am reading will hold you and your family accountable until Qiyaama. Finally he took $80 dollars in my phone. She said ' Allah will not allow those who unjust and with their hands full of blood to prosper in peace unless a real cleansing of the wrong doers takes place. That was on the issue of killings and murder in the capital. When I asked her about state institution and order, it is even worse. She said for the first time in the last eight years in Mogadishu, people are lost hope of the emergence of national government. She said some locals do not eve want government or flow constitution. They keep talking about going back to 1991. I said if the clock goes back, it will be a war among the wrong doers and criminals not us.. Folks, when Dr. C/raxman Bayle, who reached among the top officials of the government , sold his own house in Mogadishu and said he would spent the rest of his life helping other Somalis outside the evil town called Mogadishu, I knew things were realy bad. No need to be nostalgic of the past, but the hopes of Somali state coming out from the blood soaked town of Mogadishu is almost zero. We should all go back to our villages and towns and try to invest our time money where people might appreciate. The evil Somali rebels who destroyed our nation will never bring back anything that is even close to a functioning government. WE had free education from elimentary school to university, we had free health care ( Even Bukaan socod eegto or walking clinincs),not the one owned by the greedy doctors who cash $100 just to see you including the corrupt Dr. called Gaboose, our ports and airports were owned by the people not The evil gulf oligarchs, most of all we were proud. Folks, after 30 years, all we hear is Macawsley and DP world and fat man who enrich themselves. We should all forget that city where the blood of the Somali people are spilled for 30 years with no end in sight. Let the evel businessmen who got rich of the blood of innocent enjoy their proffits while fearing the terror they, themselves finance.
  22. Now it is clear. This crazy woman is on a mission. Is this the most important issue facing Mogadishu Today. WAxaan maqli jiray " nin soori qaaday waa nin seefi qaaday". Waar naagtaan Gudoomiye ku xigeenka ha laga qaado si dhibkeeda loo yareeyo
  23. It wasn't a penalty. Usually the VAR intervenes to clarify, but they didn't even call the referee to check. Ganian players asked the ref to check the VAR , but he ignored their protest and proceeded. In terms of Saudis defeating Argentina, I give vthe credit to their manager. A good bench boss could make a defference. He played 4,4,2, but the four central players joined the two attackers and pressed while dominating the center. Furthermore, the defence was well trained to use the offside trap by leaving their positions while exposing Argentinian forwards. Yet, the VAR seems to be in action to save the Saudis even a shoulder or one feet advatage while they refused to use against Ronaldo who is the top stars. Canada got a great team. They dominated the Belgium which are one of the top teams. The problem is we got a law quality manager. in the last 20 minutes rather pull out a defender and overwhelm the opposition by adding more attack, he removed a forward and replaced with another forward. African players seem to be playing individually showcasing their talent. Compare that to the unity of the Japanese, even their bench substitutes are joining the celebration by showing their team spirit. The top teams are the Spanish, flowed by the Dutch, The French and maybe the Brazilians who doesn't empress me.England is good, but Gareth Southgate is timid and always plays safe.
  24. Actually, I might take some of my earlier statements according to a member of Somali parliament who seems to know few things about the oil and gas issue. He said these agents like coastal explorations and others are front companies rapresenting big companies like Shell and Chevron. He siad because of the political situation in Somalia including Al-dhbaab war, the big companies with hundreds of billions of assets do not want to expose themselves to bad publicity and regfional conflicts and through this minor players they want to have access for the future.
