  6. Sacdiya doubles down on her resolve to pass the new Fusuq laws in Somalia Parliament. She threatens those social media activists who live in the West to keep quiet or else she (read her Western backers) will make sure they pay for it.
  7. Toosan-1 oil well which is planned to be drilled in 2023 contains around 100 to 200 MMbbls of Oil. This Well alone could produce 50 thousand barrels of oil per day for 10 years, or over $100 million dollars per month at current prices. About 500 Oil-tanker Trucks will be shuttling oil between Toosan-1 and the Oil Depot at Port of Berbera. CPC Taiwan is building the Oil Depot in Berbera where they are the sole buyer of all the oil produced by Somaliland.
  8. Don't hold back. I challenge you to spill it all out. These days we hear about "mulkiilaha dawladda" etc etc. The original mulkiile of South Somalia was General Gabre. He probably shaped South Somalia more than the Italians did in their nearly 80 years of colony.
  9. You are so desperate. Is that all you came back with? 1. signing of Meles Zenawi's condolences book is something that almost every African leader did or even including World leaders (either as proxy signed by Ambassadors or directly). This is not something unique to Somaliland. 2. Going to Addis Abeba and making sure your interests are protected, is again, something that many other states also did. But what is unique to South Somalia is that, General Gabre was the sole ruler, it was him that the buck stops with. He would overrule your leader's decisions and even force your leaders to sign a document that he prepared earlier that no one knows what is included in it. Even Western Somali politic experts have written volumes about this, there was case when the Somalia Warlords refused to sign some agreement. The minute Gen Gabre got involved, they all arrived at the hotel where they would sign the documents with "No buts or ifs". And that is just the surface of the 'ceebta' meesha ka dhacday.
  10. That was true for all of South Somalia's leaders, not just HSM. Even Farmaajo when he was PM and also the first few years as President. In fact, the Ethiopian Embassy was inside Villa Somalia even during Farmaajo's days. The TNG/TFG was the brainchild of the TPLF and they saw it as their own pet project.
  11. The TPLF Enforcer General Gabre was seen in Nairobi taking part in the peace negotiations between TPLF and Addis Abeba.
  12. This comes after a recent speech by Hiiraan politician Sanbaloolshe roasted his clan for being the only clan under literal "gumaysi" in their own lands. Prof. Cabdi Samatar warned that organising and arming subclan melitia along jufo-lines has its own serious downside. With HAG politicians increasing subscribing to the Woke culture of looking after their own interests, there is indeed an opportunity for the wrong people to ascend to positions of power and turn this into another cycle of the Somali civil war.
  13. UAE's biggest food producer plans to invest in Berbera Economic Zone (BEZ). This is a huge win for BEZ and will help fast track other similar producers and packagers to expand their businesses to East Africa market. --------------- IFFCO to develop 300,000 sq ft edible oil packing plant at DP World port in Somaliland "IFFCO Somaliland signed a 25-year lease with BEZ to develop a 300,000 sq. ft packing facility, with future expansion plans covering another 300,000 sq. ft. Once complete by the first half of 2023, the first phase of the edible oil plant will create hundreds of jobs for local citizens and attract foreign direct investment to Somaliland."

  14. The Somaliland Army acts as guarantor of the political agreements between local clans and Somaliland Administration. Without this guarantor, these agreement would not have become reality. The army is there to enforce the agreement and to protect it.
  15. Berbera Corridor to benefit from new European strategy for investing in Africa. The initiative is part of Global Gateway The Strategic Corridors are an important part of the EU 's Africa-Europe Global Gateway investment package. 2The initiative is funded by the EU’s Neighborhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI), also known as Global Europe. Global Gateway 1 is the EU’s answer to China’s new Silk Road. In addition, the Middle Kingdom is building infrastructure almost worldwide, much of it in Africa 1 . The criticism of this: Projects are often not sustainable and the orders go almost exclusively to Chinese companies. In contrast to this, Global Gateway is intended to consciously promote sustainable infrastructure - both in terms of environmental protection and financing. In addition, the companies should compete fairly, so that European companies also have opportunities. Investments in Africa’s infrastructure are urgently needed to improve the living conditions of the population and make the continent more competitive. Analysts assume that more than 100 billion US dollars per year would have to be invested in additional infrastructure in Africa.
