  1. MMA,

    Saaxiib you raised good points. Of course Somalia breathed better in terms of his opposition to accommodate regional states who wanted to have their own foreign, military and intelligence policy separate from the national government. Yet, if you look Ethiopia after 2015, their own problems were getting bigger, but the Somali leaders never grasped the issue.

    They were worried about their internal problems and even invited Hassan Sheikh to Jigjiga in 2016 to help them build alliances against internal Oromo uprising. Even Hailemarium Dasalegn openly told Farmaajo in 2017 that they will not interfere Somalia in terms of regional governments.

    THe pendulum was swinging already, but Somali leadership never understood the reason. Ethiopia , a country who is on the verge of disintegrating will no longer push the separation of Somaliland or any other region. By now, they should be fearing us, not the other way around. We could summon Daud Ibsa of Oromo liberation Front and give him access to topple the old empire. Folks, the world had changed and those who are bold enough to act.

    Despite all of that Abiy has done a decent job in terms of relationship with Somalia. My fear is that , as stated by our friend Mourad,  Abiy doesn't have clear agenda. Some Somalis who are experts in Ethiopian affairs believe that Abiy is buying time just like the way TPLF did in 1991. In the early years of Meles Zenawi, everyone was celebrating the new Ethiopia where a blood thirsty dictator Mengistu was deposed. The TPLF did not even enter Jigjiga fearing the none existent Somali rebel fighters. After consolidating power, he killed all the Somalis who were threat to him including town mayors.

    By reviving king Menelik, Haile Salasie and Mengistu himself , Abiy went too far. He knows how we Somalis and Oromo despise the evil Derg of Mengistu and the old kingdom. When he went to Djiboutii conference, the Amhara media were even wondering why an Ethiopian prime minister is pushing for Somali unity. WE and Amhara know each other.

    Regardless of his ethnic background, unelected dictator in Ethiopia is threat to Somalis every where.If he succeeds crushing the Oromo, Somalis will be next. 

    Another issue that gave me great concern is that an Oromo journalist has raised some serious issue about Abiy. In 2018, Abiy was asked about his ethnic background, but refused to answer directly. When his father Ahmed Ali was asked about his son, he said, " I raised Abiy just like the rest of my children" which means Mr. Abiy is not his biological father. He might have been an Amhara child brought by his mother before the marriage to the the Oromo father.


    My conclusion is that Somali leaders usually spent their time to gain some badly needed legitimacy in the region and might give the shop for short term goals. Yes, Abiy might have helped Farmaajo against Ahmed Madoobe, but at the end it did not produce any lasting conclusion to the Jubba issues. Farmaajo has done some good things, yet if he leaves office at this juncture without resolving any outstanding issue, I consider his project as half cooked.

    I hope I am wrong on this Abiy Ahmed guy.


  2. I have seen some video about Oromo youth carrying the body of the slain singer and they were peacefully marching. Abiy is doing what the TPLF did between 2015-2017 by shooting to kill the protesting Oromo youth. 

    The preacher might have got some calm before the storm. If he thinks he can shoot his way he is mistaken. 

    If the Oromo want the power they should depose this guy before the next election.


     OOdweyne ,

    You just came out of hiding to refute my  earlier support of Abiy Ahmed. As you claimed, I wasn't his water carrier, but I admit that I was one among many Somalis who supported his early reforms including freeing tens of thousands of Somalis from jails from Jigjiga all the way to the dungeons of Addis Ababa.

    He promised economic integration and close relationship with the Somali state and offered olive branches to a new non interference policy toward  Somalia and its internal politics . I also  admired his isolation policy of the regional governments and denying their useless travels to Addis and falsely act as equal to the federal government. As we speak today, he hasn't changed  his mutual respect of Somalia and upholding the territorial integrity of the Somali Republic. He even told your boy Muuse Biixi to quit complaining about what took place 32 years ago and start negotiating with the Somalli leadership, aka Farmaajo. He told him about the recent war between Eritrea and Ethiopia were over hundred thousand died just two decades ago, and said , " If we , the Ethiopians and Eritrean could join and forget the last war , certainly Somalis who are one people should do the same".

    So, unlike what you stated, I have every reason to join the Abiy Ahmed band wagon like millions of Somalis. For you it just about Somaliland and you are , as always , accusing me of supporting him because he is muscle to subdue Somaliland. My friend,  Somaliland doesn't need big muscle to bring them back to the fold of the Somali union. Time and space will force her to come home. When Somalia gains two pounds of power, prestige or peace , Somaliland  loses 200 pounds. 

    Furthermore, in politics, things are not static or written in a stone. While Abiy Ahmed is still upholding what he said or did about Somalia, I can not trust someone who is beholden of the old empire. I thought he was buying time to appease the Amhara elite who have friend in high places, but I never thought him to be another Amhara in the closet. 

    "Soomaalidu waxay leedahay nikii Hooyaday guursadaba waa adeerkay".That is a bad policy. While Oromo has land disputes with Somalis and have certain anarchists tendency,  they are looking freedom just like millions of Somalis in Somali Galbeed who are looking to free themselves from the yokes of the old empire. 

    Like many Oromo, I was expecting him to dismantle the old empire. And if the preacher can not hold his side of the bargain, then we shall part from separate ways.

    So , Mr. Oodweyne, there is nothing to be ashamed here. You and I are of a different school of thoughts and ideology. I support those who are seeking freedom and dethrone despots, feudal monarchists and old colonial ideas. I stand with those who are defending Tripoli from the putschist  his Hifter and Sisi; I stand with those in Yemen fighting to keep their country together from the agents of mayhem and disintegration the UAE. I stand with Suldaan Erdogan and the new Turkey emerging from disruptions of the middle east.

    I may fail sometimes while trying new ways to disrupt and change the status quo, but my mission is the same. I might circle the wagon to bring down the wrong caravan, but ultimately, i will go down as a free man.

    Now, tell me who you stand with.

    Waxaan ku idhi sidi sdidaada mooyaane dhul u dhacaaga hubso.

    If there is any consolation to some of you,  before he was selected, I wrote an article how Abiy was neither Muslim, Christain or Oromo.

    he is a transitional leader which was put in place to facilitate peaceful elections. 

    A temporary and culturally Amhara, pretending to be Oromo and sitting in Menelik chair will not last. 

    He should resign and give way to real Oromo before the real civil war to dislodge the Amhara stars.

    Western Oromia is already a battle ground. The man had lost the day he rehabilitated Menelik and Haile Salase. He might be trying to reverse everything TPLF did, but to revive the Melelik and Haile who also took our land and killed thousands of Somalis from 1887-1974 is unacceptable.

    WE somalis and Oromo can not allow or accept an Amhara leader in Ethiopia. It is a direct threat. It is simple as that.

    The pastor has no longer any support within the Oromo. If there was any hope of them supporting him, he did it away with the asinine move. He was already waging a literal war with Christian West Oromo, and now with Eastern Muslim Oromo, and the South Oromo is under the command post.


    Welcome back Ninyahow. Meeshani way kuu baahnayd. We were missing the breaking news from that side.

    Anyway, many of us were supporting the preacher for his support and commitment of Somali unity, and our government, but this time he went too far.

    This are purely the actions of Amhara. Day in and day out they are calling for the arrest of Jawar and Oromo leadership. A culturally Amhara guy can not lead the Oromo revelation.

    We need a real leader in Somali Galbeed to hold his ground and prepare for the future.


  6. Warya Tilamook,

    I wasn't rooting for any harms to anyone. I am not anarchist. We Somalis always treat well others especially those who leave among us. Every citizen' s rights must be respected regardless of his ethnic background and those who are minorities.

    My contention is just like Cabdi Illey went to Makele with bag full of cash , Mustafe Cagjar took millions of Ethiopian Bir to Amhara capital to compensate those who lost businesses during the Jigjiga uprising while Somalis who were displaced are living in tents. He is courting Amhara and speaking with their tone and agenda. I didn't what was going on but was finally cleared that Cagjar is protected by Amhara. He is their man.

    Few months ago Jigjiga streets were closed for two consecutive days for the celebration of Amhara day with local traffic banned for those two days. WE don't even have Somali day in Jigjiga or Somali Galbeed. Amharic programming is broadcast full time now in the regional Television. do you thing Amhara will ever broadcast Somali language in their region or even the federal level? I don't think so.

    Furthermore, there are unverified reports that Soomali Liyu Police were sent to Oromia region to subdue the protesters which is absolutely uncalled for. 

    If the shit hits the fan , as Che used to say, we have to be on the right side of history  this time.

    Also, the Amhara had historically assassinated and killed Oromo leaders for the last century. They killed the young king Eliyasu and took  his throne accusing him of converting to Islam. Haile Salasi took his position. Menelik beheaded Oromo leaders and cut the breast of Oromo women. That is they have statue in Ambo. Mengistu killed the first Oromo president Tafari Bante .

    Since Jawar came back to Ethiopia, the Amhara were clamoring for his arrest or assassination. The Amhara knows when they see a lion. there is a saying, " we are not afraid of lions led by sheep, but we are afraid of sheep led by lion". It is not the TPLF who are clamouring for Jawar but the coward Amhara who only knows plotting and creating mayhem. 

    Finally, they are my real enemies.




  7. The Oromo nation is mourning for the last few days, after the senseless assassination of the beloved artist, singer/song writer Hacaluu Hundessaa.

    No one knows who are the killers are and the government of Abiy Ahmed is erratically pointing fingers to many places. The singer was jailled in 2003 for composing and singing Oromo freedom songs. He spend five years in jail. He composed his early songs in jail. In 2015, his song " Maalin Jira (my existence" gossiping the annexation of Oromoia land by the TPLF was the culprit that ignited the Oromo revolution that deposed the centuries long dictatorship.

    The man is a symbol of Oromo pride and nationalism. By far he is the top Oromo singer loved by millions. Last week he gave interview to the Oromo Media Network owned by Jawar Mohamed and criticized Abiy government. Yesterday, I speculated that the TPLF might have a hand in this to create mistrust among Oromo. Yet, evidence might lkead to other groups especially Amhara. The singer is contesting Addis to be included to the Oromia land and those who staunchly opposed any Oromo presence of the Ethiopian capital are Amhara.

    Today I met an Oromo quittance of mine and I said, to him, " I do believe the Amhara could be the killers". He immediately jumped and said, " don't say that because that statement might create a civil war in Ethiopia, and according the latest news, the government is accusing WAyaane on the assassination of the artist". 

    To kill the people's heroes and those they hold dear has been always the work of colonizers to demoralize those seeking freedom and make them feel hopeless. And if there is anyone who has a colonial trait in Ethiopia, it is the evil Amhara. The George Floyd anti racist movement is destroying sacred cows and those who enslaved and oppressed people. Soon the statue of Menelik and company will come down in Ethiopia regardless of who is in power. Haile Salasie staue in London has been already destroyed by Oromo diaspora. Ahmed Abiy, the man who gained the power through Oromo blood and revolution is becoming pro Menelik and Amhara. 

    Since the TPLF decided to boycott Ethiopia and seek separation at the last resort, who is this preacher counting to defend him?. 

    In another news, an insider in Jigjiga told a very strange news last week. He said Mustafe Cagjar is not connected to the Oromo federal leadership at all. Even Abiy Ahmed himself was pushed by Oromo leadership to replace him few times, but he is protected by the highest Amhara federal leadership including the deputy prime minister and Amhara regional leadership. He said that in Jigjiga if you wrong any Amhara you could be locked up for good ( Amhaaradu Jigjiga waa laandherre yaal cidi sidaas u eegta police ayaa la kacaya).

    OMN announced that Federal Police had arrested Jawar Mohammed on Tuesday.

    The media, whose owner is Jawar Mohammed himself who was linked to the killings of 86 people in October 2019, claimed that there was a clash between the Federal Police and Oromia region Security forces, as reported by DW Amharic service on Tuesday.

    However, OMN did not say details regarding casualties on both sides.  It claimed that Federal Police members had to get reinforcements to make the arrest.

    Bekele Gerba, who is among the senior leadership of Oromo Federalist Party, is also arrested along with Jawar Mohammed. The location of their arrest is undisclosed. Jawar joined the political party last December the legality of which was questioned by the National Electoral Board of Ethiopia on grounds of Jawar’s U.S. citizenship.

    The arrest came a day after prominent Ethiopian singer Hachalu Hundessa was assassinated in the capital Addis Ababa in the locality of Gelan Condominiums. Police said on Tuesday that he was killed after he got into his car.

    However, Police did not disclose information about the identities of the killed although it has confirmed that it has arrested some suspects.

    Hachalu was interviewed by OMN a few days before he was murdered, and there was apparent coordination on the part of those who plotted the killing to make his death appear as if it is linked to the remarks he made over the Emperor Menelik.

    Oromia Regional State president, Shimeles Abdissa, said on Tuesday that the killing was an orchestrated one and was intended to bring about chaos in the country.

    He pointed fingers to Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) leaders and other political forces who he said were hired mercenaries. Speaking with breaking voices out of grief, Shimeles also said that political entities that are combining peaceful and armed struggle are involved in the campaign to reverse the reform measures in the country.

    Lencho Bati, a prominent Oromo activist, and politician who is said to work as an adviser to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s government said the killing TPLF and Egypt are likely to be behind the killing. But it was executed through the agency of mercenaries hired from the Oromo community, he added.


  9. Yes. They chose to weaken their brethren for political expediency. 

    Just look in Northern Puntland, the HAG had created one and half region despite the bogus constitution sating two or more. Sool and Sanaag Bari could have the same time these were being pushed to the for front. 

    Puntland should abandon swallowing  regions that are traditionally out of their political sphere and instead created allies. As Makhiri stated, in Somalia, you create political reality on the ground and then you force or sell others to that politicall reality.

    THere were no Somaliland in the east until Xaabsade and his militia from Puntlkand took over Laascaanood and the rest is history.

    Puntland should change course and help create Sool/Sanaag.

    Remeber the Prime Minister was PL, and of course PL involved engineering this thing.

    Remember , it would not fly without PL agreement.

    I agree. Puntland had prime minister as a house Nigger who was based in Mogadishu. I do believe that in early 2009-2012, the whole federal government was, Puntland, Shhariif Ahmed and Shariif Hassan, they would have created Sool and Sanaag if they pushed, but chose to follow the HAG on these issues. Even Hassan Sheikh abandoned Sool and Sanaag getting their own MPs because of the pressure from Puntland and Somaliland.

    At the moment,  Farmaajo is serving the interest of Mogadishu based groups.He will be judged how these regions fared at the end of his mandate.

  11. The constitution will be " La jiifiyaana Banaan".

    It is illegal to give 13 To Mogadishu without basing any constitutional means. The provisional parliament says the upper house should be 54 based on 18 provinces. Some regions who are one and half provinces like Galmudug took 8 seats. They should have gotten 4 or maximum 5.

    At the end this amalgamation of regions must be abolished and the federal system should be based on the original 18 provinces. I would even suggest the abolishing of the Upper House. Somalia needs one single parliament and the executive branch. 

    Yet, at the moment, Puntland seems to be isolated politically. It is on the verge of loosing Sool and Sanaag community for good; it doesn't have good relations with South west and Hiiraan, and by pandering to Banaadir seats Farmaajo is allying himself to the " Unaka and company.  Also , in terms of constitution, it is only Puntland that is safeguarding and forcing the federal government to obey. 

    Under C/raxman Faroole, Puntland decided to abandon Sool and concentrate to federal politics only. If Puntland had decided early the establishment of Sool and Sanaag as a self standing entity, it might have  created a real ally and powerful region that by default could have eliminated separatists in Somaliland. Without Sool and Sanaag Somaliland could have been reduced as  a small region of Dirta woqooyi.

    Instead they have concentrated obtaining authority to appoint the Sool region members of Parliament to Mogadishu.

    I think Puntland should self examine and change the course. Few weeks ago C/laahi DEni was praising Somaliland at the expense of Farmaajo and last week he was complaining about the fake Djibouti conference. The time has come for Puntland to build real allies  and concentrate for those who share their Pan-Somalism and those who stand by the constitution. 

    Also, Farmaajo and company are weak links when it comes to HAG agenda. While he had moved the needle on the federal government and the nation, his administration has not strengthened anyone from JUbba, Sool, Awdal, Sanaag, Puntland, Gedo and others.

    Weli ma kala cadda.

    Are they planning to hold one person one vote without resgistraion? .Nine months is a reasonable time. Even extending five to six months is not a far fetched plan. Hassan Sheikh supposed to hold election in Septemper 2016, but he finally did Feberaury 2017.

    All Farmajo needs is to make the necessary conceltation with the regional governments and go from there. Due to these logical issues caused by Coronavirus, next summer is reasonable.

  13. It is really shame.

    Another thing that most of us didn't know is that there is extortion going within the so called intelligence department ( Nabad Sugida). When these singers , who are mostly women, come from Mogadishu, they are detained by the intelligence guys and demand money.

    Those who pay the money do not get arrested and the media would say' Madaxweynaha ayey cafis weydiisteen', if they do not pay they are taken directly to jail. None of them are taken to court or adjudicated by judge. 

    Folks, the Hermit Kingdom is broke and some poor singers are free.

    Obama allowed movements to Cuba in order to break the communist island.


  14. Do not worry. There are no sport teams in Somaliland.

    WE have the minister of sport, yet nothing to manage.

    Since Muuse Biixi showed up in 2017, there were no " Ciyaaraha gobolada".

    When I talk about stagnation, I am talking about the lack of creativity and imaginations. What does it take to set up a Football league in Somaliland? Even the yearly " Ciyaaraha Gobolada" was canceled when the Burco team brought knifes to the game.

    You could call the REd Seaa League, or whatever. You can have two teams  from Borama , four from Hargeisa and and son on. Get ten teams and play.

    They might have anti youth policy which might bring young men together and share things.
