     The Afar had no choice but join the Abiy bandwagon, yet if they see an opportunity to secede from the Amhara yolk they would do in heart neat. Prolonged blockade and economic isolation will destroy Tigray eventually.

    I believe that the first shots or military action will be  taken by the TPLF

    Khadaafi, your theory might work for the TPLf. Rather being a sitting duck , they might ignite the fire and start the war. In 1940, Japan attacked America after she was put on in a devastating arms embargo. Both Abiy and TPLF knows that war will end Ethiopia for good.  



  2. Is this a new way to make a cash from the European fools. No Somali pirate boat could travel five thousand miles from the Red sea to the Mediterranean and all the way to the southern Atlantic.

    I think  some Somalis from Eyl and Xaradheere should make a contact to this Nigerian guy and make some deal to transfer couple of boats to Lagos and cash in this new enterprise.


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

  3. The evil Tigray had set Ethiopia on fire. If the deputy premier is speaking like a militia leader things could get ugly. The preacher must transfer power to the Oromo before things get ugly.

    Rather than give the reigns of power to Lema Magrassa, they chose their own son whom they trained for decades. Abiy , even falsely claimed to be member of the TPLF who deposed the Derg, although he was 14 years old in 1990.

    The TPLF may became a country by default without even firing a gun.

  4. Let us see if Hassan A. Khayre and his sidekick Sanbaloolshe could win any votes.

    Looking back, Sanbaloolshe presided to big events that undermined Farmaajo's standing among Somalis in 2017. The huge bomb that killed 500 people in number 4 and the handing of Qalbi Dhagax to Ethiopia.

    Poor Farmaajo realized the plots of Khayre late in the game including his secret dealings with UAE.

    At the end money alone would not elect the leader but public opinion as well.

  5. Oday gooni,

    Miyaad works noo balbalaadhisid.

    Ninkan sirtii qaranka oo dhan gacanta ku haya ee Farmaajo kala talinayey arrimahan culus ma la taliyaha madaxweynaha ayuu ahaan jiray mise taliyihii nabad sugida.

    Siday ku dhici kartaa in olole (Operation) sirdoonka qaranka amd ka gobolka banaadir fulinayo , ninkan loo sheego oo uu ogaado kalana hadlo madaxweynaha?

    Ma dagaalki Villa Kismaayo ayaa halkan galay?

    Haddiise kan oo kale sir qaran ogyahay madaxweynahana ka ag dhawyahay, Somalia dawladeeda qashin baa ka buuxa.

    Warka cadee gudoomiye Gooni.

  6. MMA,

    I do not like anything those sitting in Nairobi hotel publish in Somalia, but this time, at least they are reporting something we all know.

    Here are the main points I agree on this report.

    1- Al-shabaab infiltration of ports.

    Is is true and it happening. It has been confirmed that as soon as you pay your taxes at the Mogadishu port and move your goods to your businesses, an Al-shabaab operative would come and tell you exactly the amount of goods you imports through the ports and will demand their taxes. They might even tell you how much the government took in taxes.

    2- They have their own accounts in banks.

    I do not blame Somali banks since it is difficult to distinguish legitimate traders from those who work for Al-shabaab, but their are mechanisms to detect and report transactions.The problem is the weak and corrupt government is not doing its job of tracking large cash transactions. It is possible to track and find who is depositing what or withdrawing cash.

    Since illegal taxes and extortionist are the main driving engine of Al-shabaab war, financial tracking should be as big as the military war.

    3- Tele banking.

    They did not mention in this report but telephone banking is huge attraction for Al-shabaab.

    Anyway, the time has come for Somali money institutions to open their books to the security agencies.

    It's a mistake to think Abiy will be different. When it comes to Somalis, Ethiopia's rulers are united in their disdain for these unruly nomads.

    Ethiopia will never be the same. Somalia should start building relationships with the Oromo opposition for future strategic aims. 

    Abiy lost credibility by allying himself with the Amhara Neftegna. The Amhara told him he could be the 7th king of Ethiopia with constitutional monarchy and prime minister appointed from the political parties. Abiy even said that he his own Amhara Mom had told he will be a king some day. What a delusion.


    Anyway, how will this stand off end?.THe TPLF learned from the corrupt Somalis from Puntland, Hargeisa and Mogadishu and printed the Ethiopian Bir illegally and earned billions. Now that money has been demonetized and Abiy told the Ethiopian finance police any illegal money sequestered should be theirs to keep.

    It is becoming difficult to stop TPLF penetration of Oromo groups through their network. Amhara are agitating for war, but the nomadic and tough Tigray highlanders will crush the Amhara in no time. 

  8. Che,\

    It also shows that the typical Somali is Loyal to his clan despite the evidence.

    Even though he revealed a lot Cali Mahdi lied willfully in this interview. He said to be willing to give up power within one year, yet he claimed to be president as late as 1997 during the Egyptian conference in Cairo.Gurigiisa markii la bililiqaystay ayuu Dubai iska tagay.


    The astonishing thing is why a 75 years old man who should retire and spent the rest of his life to build bridges among communities is starting a business venture at this age.We have very strange culture in Somalia. Every crook will recite the Quran and then lie in your face. Have you seen Daahir Calasaw recite Hadis and Quran before he starts insulting eveyone.




  9. Saalax,

    Usually, the money especially those from the gulf is divided among corrupt politicians in Mogadishu.

    InshAllah, we will discuss more about the incoming auction in Mogadishu early next year.

    It is going by far the most expensive auction in the world. Just to put your name in the House , you must deposit $20,000 dollars. Running for a seat will cost over $100,000. 

    Aduunka ma jirto meel sidan dadka loo kala iibsado. Sayladani 20 sanadood ayey socotaa,

    what a shame.

  10. It is a good revealing interview, yet he did cover the real truth about his ill gotten money.

    Some us welcome his regrets and mistakes in a couple of major events:

    First, former president Ali Mahdi accepted the blame of allowing a corrupt politician Cumar Carte for dismantling the national army. It was the most significant move that created the security vacuum and allowed the tribal rebels to replace the state.

    Later, Donald Remsfield copied that idea and destroyed Iraq by dismantling the 400,000 Iraq army and paved the sectarian conflict that is still raging in that country. Yet, Cali Mahdi and Manifesto failed to invite and bring to the table the armed rebels, mainly SNM, USC of Aideed and others which eventually led to catastrophic events.

    The second point is that unlike many other Somalis, especially in the North East and North west, the HAG community doesn't abide or flow the tribal logic of the Somali clans. It shows despite their anarchist tendencies, the HAG community are not tribal like most Somalis . Over 300 members of the HAG clan convened in Mogadishu and could not find a verdict about the competing leadership of Ali Mahdi and Aideed, which means the traditional tribal norms are not strong in Mogadishu which might mean a blessing for the future of the Somali people.

    Waxa uu yidhi waa boog ku taala HAG. In my opinion these two statements are the most honest about interview. I also agree with him that the dumping of nuclear waste in Somali waters to be baseless and unfounded. As Ali Mahdi said, the Somalia of 1992 did not had the capacity to deny anyone of dumping toxic waste. 

    Furthermore, he is correct that the October revolution had the advantage of taking power from a system that was developed from 1950-1969. Yet, his simplistic explanations of the support Somalis had given to the Kacaan was shallow at best. The phenomenon of the October revolution was a wind of change that engulfed many African nations in the sixties. Very prominent leaders of the continent were deposed by coups. Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, the leader of Pan-African movement, Ahmed Ben Bella of Algeria, and Lampuba of Zaire were among the victims of the coups of the sixties. Somalia was not different from those nations who fell under the military. Also, communist dictatorship was the only way to keep the power in  African, Asian and even Europe.

    Of course the Somalia of 1960-69 was a goal oriented, rising nation, yet the Somali people were disappointed by the competing interest of the ruling class. By the election of 1969, Somalia had 80 parties, and after the election was over , except C/risaq H.huseen, they all joined the ruling SYL after the election. 

    Part of the blame was the revolving door of the Italian system Somalis have inherited. In Italy from 1945-90, they had more than 40 governments, and some of them last barely few months. It is the same system that is grappling our country where prime ministers are replaced every 12 months. 

    Yet, no one can deny the euphoria Somalis had shown for the Kacaan in 1969.

    Back to the interview.

    While Cali Mahdi had offered and accepted some of the earlier mistakes, he did not refute or explain his ill gotten money during the rule of then president C/laahi Yusuf. He reveals that he was the one who brought the $32 million reconciliation dollars or Saudi bribes supposed to buy support for the TNG..

    He accepts his share of the millions given to him. He said,  he spend over 4. 5 million dollars to house and cook some food  for the Somali elders for a week in makeshif Halane compound. He said the $ 2 million of his share of the bribe was stolen by the man who supposed to deliver to him. People who were close to C/laahi Yusuf government told me that Cali Mahdi too $8 million of the money. So far he revealed 6.5 million.Yet, a man who was wiling to take home 2 million dollars of bribe had given back $4000 dollars he stole in 1968. I do not buy that. " War garaad dhaama jira"

    Ali Mahdi also flowed another scheme used by corrupt Somali politicians and looters to hide their ill gotten theft. Usually, they use their wives or their children to hide their money. 

    " Xaaskayga ayaa hotelka iska leh" .

    Lately, we have found out that the wife of one the former presidents who used to sell gasoline in a retail shop in Mogadishu , is now a multi millionaire business woman who owns big buildings. 

    well, Mr Mahdi should take off his dark glasses and tell the real truth.

  11. When I heard  the death of (Allah Ha u Naxariiste) Cali Khaliif , I thought : what is going on in that God forsaken City of Jigjiga. 

    For the last few years, many notable and famous Somalis had died suddenly without long illness. Ahmed H. Cawke, Dauud Ali Maxaf, Sangub and now Cali Khaliif comes to mind.   When I was there two years ago, the only place people go for change of scenery and entertainment was a hotel and restaurant owned by a Tigay guy. All the ruling class was there. 

    On the issue of Somaliland, Cali Khaliif was the only man with load microphone in Hargeisa. He was not carrying a gun, but his constant denouncing of the system was threat to both Muuse Biixi and the Garaad community members of cabinet.

    It was true that both Galayr and Samater were denied to visit Borama in 2019. He was the only real opposition in Hargeisa. They wanted him to leave got good, but he refused.





  12. He just demonetized the old Ethiopian Bir and created a new currency in order to sideline the billions stashed in Tigray. He said billions of Ethiopian Bir are in Djibouti, Somali and Sudan. 

    Despite all his efforts,  the TPLF is becoming a tough nut to crack. A war will bury both Ethiopia and Abiy. The only option left is a prolonged blockade and isolation.


  13. Khayre, a man from no where honored to be the premier of the wounded republic, yet before leaves became dry , he want to help depose that man. Farmaajo did stick with Khayre until the later became opposition. 

    I have no doubt that they will both lose if they run against each other.



     addisstandard /  September 11, 2020 



    Addis Abeba, September 11/2020 – Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), the ruling party of Tigray regional state, has won 98.2% of the vote for the regional parliament, taking 152 of the total 190 seats.

    Muluwork Kidanemariam, Commissioner of the Office of Electoral Commission of the National Regional State of Tigray, told BBC Amharic that the remaining 38 seats in the council will be distributed among the four opposition parties that participated in the election.

    Five parties including TPLF have participated in the regional election on September 09. According to the preliminary results announced by the Electoral Commission of the National Regional State of Tigray the number of votes secured by the five parties is stated as following: TPLF: 2, 590, 620; Baytona: 20, 839; Tigray Independence Party: 18, 479; Salsay Weyane Tigray: 3, 136; and and Asimba Democratic Party :774. Some 2.7 million people were registered to vote in the election on Wednesday. Muluwork told local media that 98% of the registered voters have cast their voted in any of the 2,672 polling stations.

    On August 06, Tigray National Regional Council has amended Art. 48/2 of the regional state’s Constitution changing the First Past the Post clause in the constitution by Mixed Electoral System. Accordingly, a decision was made to make 20% the seats in the regional council available for opposition political parties that participated in the election, Muluwork told BBC Amharic.

    Prior to the election, Ethiopia’s upper house, the House of Federation (HoF), ruled the election as “unconstitutional” and in violation of Article 9(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) and the outcome would be “void, non-binding and non-applicable.”

    Tigray regional state refused to comply with the ruling and instead blamed the the federal government for abandoning its constitutional duty to hold the general election under the pretext of the COVID -19 pandemic. “The people’s right to be administered by leaders of their choice and the unconditional right to self-determination granted by the constitution cannot be stopped even by state of emergency proclamation,” Amanuel Asefa, Head of Tigray Regional State Justice Bureau, told Addis Standard. AS

  15. Saala,

    Saaxiib it happened before.

    Two fools (prime ministers C/weli Gaas and Cumar Sharmaarke) run against the presidents they were serving, and thanks to their action they, Shariif and Hassan Sheikh went down. 

    This Khayre had probably over estimated himself . He is either knows something we don't or will flow the same route of his predecessors. If it is all about revenge , he will go down. 

    Mise waxa uu is yidhi Farmaajo waxba meesha kuma hayne adaa wax kala waday.

    Since the day he was fired, Farmaajo seems to be confused. He can not made his mind in any issue.

    And so what is your point?

    You know my point unless you are wearing blinders. Why would these men with no functioning state and almost zero income treat each other like a visiting head of state?

    It is about a big fish or even a whale jumping up in a pound. Who knows how much money is spend to welcome these false leaders. We heard many stories  about women and others being given few dollars and collected to airports wearing flag draped costumes  and told to act like enthusiastic crowd eager to welcome.

    Tilamook, this is the same BS we see about a Puntland leaders coming back from Boosaaso and welcomed by 400 people and a red carpet. It has to stop.


  17. Ah, the false states of Somalia.

    50 Landcruisers each worth $50,000 dollars are welcoming false governors who can not muster even $50,000 a month worth of budget.

    How long will these charade will go on? If you go to the station police there might not be even a paper or computer to register cases; no courts to adjudicate among people or a functioning city hall .When will these games end?

    This Waare guy who lives in Mogadishu full time could not even build a mare levy to protect Beledweyne from consecutive floods while millions donated were missing. mida kale goormo lugta ka dhaawacmay pp Laangadhe noqday? 

    Waxay na badeen waxa ka daran waxay na bareen.

    Certainly these NGO's have destroyed Somalia. Remember all those shiny toys are provided by " Beesha Caalamka".

    Last week watched Madoobe and Deni landing in Mogadishu with hundreds of men in suits waiting. 

    We all know there is no work going on in Mogadishu. The reclusive president could not even address the basic issues. It was the speaker of the parliament who more than a month ago proclaimed that the president will nominate a new prime minister. No word as of yet it he decided to keep Guuleed , who is capable as a prime minister or appoint a new one. 

  18. Warku waa cad yahay.


    Nabad iyo Nolol oo laba garab ag iyo Unakaa iska leh ayaa hadda banaanka yimid.

    We are looking the third option. THe N&N boys will go down just like Shatriif Ahmed and Hassan Sheikh spilled their vote last time.

    Guys, I am in in this raise''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' definitely the third horse will win this raise.

  19. UAE is nothing but a business vulture and money laundering outfit that makes money on conflict and instability. If there was anybody who made money on human suffering and war on terror is it Abu Dhabi. The billions of dollars Americans spend in Afghanistan ended  up in Dubai banks. Both the American private contractors and Afghan warlords deposit the looted money on UAE.

    When a huge nation collapses its upper class, the wealthy and the well connected take their nations resources and deposit in Dubai, no questions asked. It will be hard to take cash or wire transfer to New York, London or Toronto. Dubai had swallowed the wealth of Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Afghanistan and Yemen.

    THen they embarked a campaign to buy ports in strategic trade routes in the Red Sea, Mediterranean, Atlantic and the Indian Ocean. Which ever port they couldn't control they have destroyed through civil war. Aden, the most famous port in the middle east was destroyed by UAE. WE Somalis, especially those of us who hail from the north grew up hearing songs about Aden.

    Kursiga Cadan yaal 

    Cabaadhka dul yaal

    ayaan caashaqay.


    Ma anigaa waalan 

    mise cadan baa

    laga heesaya.

    Yemen and Aden were the cradle of Arab civilization. Today Aden is a war torn back water where different militia backed by UAE and others clash for power. 

    Tripoli just survived A UAE paid mercenaries who shelled both civilians and airports. THeir plan was to make Libya a frozen conflict just like Syria, Somalia and Yemen. Last year, they couldn't get the Beirut port after a Chinese company made a deal to expand the Beirut port which is the main engine of Lebanon.

    Now they are telling us an Ammonium nitrate left in one of the hungers was exploded after a fire cracker exploded and then detonated the ammonium Nitrate that was left six years ago after it was inbounded by the port authority. I do not buy that explanation. Cargo left unattended in any port would be auctioned after one year. It is the rule. Even if there was corruption, who in their right mind will leave behind a freight worth millions, never look back and still sitting the same place. 

    Even Trump said in his first statement that it was an attack. I can understand the motivations of the Lebanese leadership to say it was an accident in order to keep the moral of the nation intact. If this was an attack and Lebanon could not do anything to respond , that would devastate the moral of the nation. So goes the narrative of being an accident.

    UAE and Saudis have been destabilizing Lebanon since the collapse of the government of their sponsor the Hariri family. They have withdrawn  millions of deposits to weaken  the Lebanese Pound. Gulf countries stopped their deposits and flow of foreign currency to the banks which  prompted the Lebanese banks to go under. Citizens hit the banks to withdraw their foreign currency after local currency lost 60% of their value. Just as these chaos hit the streets of Lebanon, their main economic engine is attacked.

    By the way, Lebanon is the best case study of 4.5 Somali system with steroid. Members of parliament are inherited from father to son just like the top leadership. The presidency belongs to the Christians, the premier to Sunnis and the speaker to Shia Muslims. The same clan families propped by France and Saudi Arabia have been ruling the country for the last 30 years. It is a connected oligarchy from politics to business.

    If things don't change in Somalia, we could end up the same corrupt clans alternating the power while nurturing business monopoly. We could end up Unaka boys, with weak and corrupt Puntland lieutenants while the speaker-ship is wholly owned by Reer Baydhabo.

    UAE had gotten the most strategic port in the country, the Berbera port,  for $5 million dollars a year. The Siilaanyo family exchanged for pennies and according to Sacad Cali Shire, the finance minister of Somaliland, they even took advance the next five million installment of 2018. Hore ayey u sii qaateen kiradii sanadka soo socday.

    These evil Bin Zayed Family had devastated many Arab and Muslim nations. Yet, I can assure you their time is probably up. Turkish defense minister general Halusi Akar said that, the UAE will pay their crimes the right time and place. I even heard that the other Emirates in the union are not happy the way the Bin Zayed clan is managing things. The time will come to depose the Bin Zayed clan in Abu Dhabi. When Turkish and others talk about UAE, the specifically talk about Abu Dhabi controlled by Bin Zayed, not the other entities.

    Furthermore, the butcher of Riyaad Mohamed Bin Salmaan is in great pressure to depose his father before Joe Biden takes over the American leadership. THe democratic party and others are not happy the way these boys had abused and undermined the American government system. Biden will force the king to get rid of this crazy and greedy kid. It is given.

    I am sure that when Kulmiye is defeated in the next election, they will be evicted from Berbera, and just like Omar Gheelle did , these treacherous gulf boys can not do anything about it.

    I hope Mr. C/laahi Deni to come to his senses and evict the gulf boys from Boosaaso.
