  1. It sounds like Duke bought into the hearsay some here have about Faroole, that he is both a pirate and a spoiler. You've lost the plot sxb. A damn shame.

Wrong PM Omar was credited for establishing the Anti-Corruption Committee: In 2009, under mounting pressure both form within the TFIs and its international partners, then TFG PM Omar Abdirashid Sharmarke established a Public Financial Management Unit (PFMU) under the direct authority of the Prime Minister and headed by Abdirazak Fartaag, in order to introduce greater accountability and transparency into the TFG finances. Farmaajo was actually the one credited for disbanding the PFMU: In May 2011, allegedly under pressure from members of President Sharif’s inner circle, including Abdulkarim Jaama, President Sharif’s Chief of Staff, the new TFG Prime Minister, Mohamed Abdillahi ‘Farmaajo’, disbanded the PFMU.
  3. Beside Turkish doctors paying a total of two visits each lasting 3 days long and a few scholarships that are yet to be fulfilled do to all the mismanagement surrounding the whole process, I doubt none of you can tell me any tangible assistance from Turkey sent Puntland’s way beside the usual fake promises - like how Turkey plans to build hospitals; the largest Polytechnic institute; colleges; Galkacyo airport or even opened a Development Office. The fact that you all are dogging the bigger issue at hand (Turkey bypassing other regional stakeholder to appease Somaliland) says a lot about the matter. Turkey made a reckless move first on how it appropriated its funds and just recently on how it decided to approach Somaliland bypassing other regional stakeholder. The war was a lesson learnt for us and there is no reason any of you should expect Puntland to yield where other are being appeased. Perhaps it’s not your flesh in a lion’s den. As a Somali whose forebears are from Northeast Somalia now known as Puntland, I have no leverage in either Mogadishu or Harigayso; I still recall the pain little Zamzam endured in the hands of grown officials and that of Sheikh Ciise Ahmed Dalabey: a painful reminder that should serve as all as a wake up call… “naga kaxeystaan Cumar Cabdirashiid A.Sharmaake.” All still ring as painful reminders. “Don't even compare Prof. Abdiweli with the fool you call president, Mr. Faroole” says Haatu… sxb, you can take the higher road all you like but the fact of the matter is the minute this able man even suggest a little favor for Puntland the Somali capital always turn hostile. And in the end all I’m left with to protect what little interest I have left, because we all do have interests, falls to Garowe… a fool or not like Duke insists, Farole is still all I have besides Abdiwali; a newcomer whose fate still remains uncertain because once things go sour, it’s always folks whose lordship over our capital is guaranteed who wins. Somalia has a long way to go and while the situation remains this unpredictable, anyone who calls Faroole a fool needs to really grow a pair.

The half a billion Turkey provided in assistance to Somalia not one penny did Puntland saw, just few doctors and only after Puntland pleaded them. And just yesterday Turkey promises Somaliland a single-track policy completely bypassing the Dual Track Policy that recognized other pockets of stability in Somalia that merited greater engagement. Farole should be applauded for bringing Turkey's recklessness to light... it neither cares where its assistance to Somalia goes nor serious about promoting real peace and stability now that the Turkish government is favoring one region over the other. Duke, it seems to me you've managed to play into the likes of Abtigis hands... Islaan Bashir and now you as if this is Abdiwali vs. Farole brawl. Grow a pair adeer. Mogadishu is whose leverage again? How about Harigayso? Should we then abandon Garowe for Abdiwali's sake, when we both know he is the only honest body who is serious about bringing Somalia's old glory back? I would hope not because that would make you the only real fool.
  5. 4 more years for Faroole insha'allah, the man as done well thus far.

With that statement then it would be fair to assume your definition of Somali IDPs is those whose ancestors hail from the same ancestors as those of TFG president and that of the speaker's? In that case, you my friend are dead wrong. Every clan irrespective of where their ancestors hail from were the victims of Somalia's bloody civil war and thus, all are IDPs whose houses are still being occupied by the like's of Ahmed Diriye Ali, etc. In Puntland, yes since the civil war many whose ancestors are from Northeast Somalia have come to call Puntland home for safety reasons as acknowledged by the international community since its relatively safe compare to the rest of the country. And apart from seeking shelter there the people whether their ancestors are from here or not are very much IDPs living off income from other relatives who themselves are IDPs in a far faraway land Now, armed with that little info of mine which I would bet you knew off yourself my only advice would be quit being a hypocrite. Somalia as whole is in the mess and suffering, there really is no need to pick and choose.
  7. AUN the dead. The killing in Saameel have for a change manage to get Xaaji Xunjuf to focus away from Puntland... naga sii jeeso waad nagu mashquushayee.
  8. Somalia: Puntland Talks with Mudug Community Concludes in Garowe A well-organized ceremony was held Tuesday evening at State House in Garowe, capital city of Puntland State of Somalia. The ceremony marking the conclusion of talks between Puntland Government and some community leaders was attended by senior Puntland Government leadership, traditional elders (known as Issims), Islamic clerics, business leaders and other members of civil society in Puntland. Islamic scholars Sheikh Abdulkadir Nur Farah and Sayyid Ali offered the opening words by briefly speaking about how the conflict began and the peace role played by the Issims and the religious community. The scholars both appealed to the communities to uphold the peace and to seek peaceful resolution to conflicts. A number of Issims spoke at the ceremony with an underlying theme of supporting the strengthening of peace and stability in Puntland. Puntland Issims, including Islan Bashir Islan Farah, Garad Mohamed Elmi Shirwa, and Suldan Abdisalam Suldan Mohamud, all emphasized the importance and value of maintaining the peace among communities and encouraged closer ties between the Puntland Government and the communities. Ugas Ali Ugas Mohamed, the Issim of Goldogob community of Puntland’s Mudug region, thanked the other Puntland Issims and the Government of Puntland for joint efforts to work together for peace. “The issue has been resolved and I appeal to the Puntland communities to seek peace and I urge for Puntland communities to solve their differences peacefully,” said Ugas Ali Ugas Mohamed. Former President of Puntland, H.E. Gen. Mohamud Muse Hersi (Adde Muse), who was an honorary guest at the event, praised the Issims for taking a key role towards efforts to reinforce peaceful resolution. “This peace process proves people of Puntland love each other and they love the peace,” said former Puntland President Hersi, while urging the public to “cooperate with the security forces as they perform their law and order duties.” Puntland President H.E. Abdirahman Mohamed Mohamud (Farole) expressed his appreciation to the Islamic clerics and the Issims who played an important role in contributing to end the clashes. The President said: “Today is a historic moment. Today is a victory for all of us who seek peace, justice and development. But today is also a dark day – for those who benefit from inciting hostilities and animosity leading to clashes among brotherly clans in order to create chaos, which benefits criminals like terrorists and pirates.” The President of Puntland stated: “Conflict is endemic among pastoralist communities across Somalia, but conflict during post-collapse period has grown out of proportion because of the proliferation of arms and the actions of politically organized criminals.” President Farole was clear that local communities were “misguided” to believe that the security operation in Galkayo in September 2011 was targeting a single clan or community of Puntland. President Farole also had a message for critics: “Some say our administration does not empower the traditional elders (Issims). I disagree – our Issims took a leading role and continue to maintain a leading role in past and ongoing efforts to find peace among communities across Puntland; for example elders’ mediation efforts in Mudug, Bari and Sanaag regions of Puntland. Once again, I praise our Issims for their noble efforts.” The event concluded with a dinner and the participants happily shook hands with the Puntland leadership, including President Farole, Vice President H.E. Gen. Abdisamad Ali Shire and Parliament Speaker Hon. Abdirashid Mohamed Hersi. --- END --- PRESS RELEASE Garowe, Puntland State of Somalia

  10. Your location reads Somaliland yet your concern about Puntland as if you have reer Puntland in general best interest at heart which cleary you don't... dadkan iyaga iskaga xiga, iyagana isla dhashay oo Insha'allah waxii dhib aah oo dhextaal ka heshiin. So do us all a favor and let's try to end Somaliland's mindless disastrous adventures which your government has brought up those besieged in Erigavo or those displaced in the hinterland, Kalshaale, etc.

Why shouldn’t Xinn oppose governments formed in foreign land? When 1) like Azania they don’t have a leg to stand on, on the ground nor have the blessing of clan elders from the region and (2) like Ras Casayr and Galmudug when they don’t even consist of 2 or more regions as the TFG charter demands. Abigiis you’re a fraud and Xinn is a man of reason. The TFG although formed out side of Somalia, what is important is its building process and that has been as inclusive as possible with dozens of consultative meetings which dragged on for more then 2 years. In conclusion, no it was no over night paper government sensation like Ras Casayr. Abtigiis;755675 wrote: He opposes Kenyan incursion, which the TFG endorses. He opposes Amisiom atrocities, which the TFG refuses to blame Amisom for. Maybe Xinn refuses to believe that tourism however critical it maybe to Kenya’s economy, that that was actually behind Kenya’s move to invade Somalia. You do know the Kenyans claim that they were planning a military incursion long before the Shabab even worried them? Or maybe unlike the problematic Shabab in our capital, the Shabab in Kismayo happen to be a blessing from God. As I recall, in Kismayo an alliance of local clans fought for their God-given right to live free in the land of their fathers fathers. They bravely liberated Kismayo so their children can walk and play in peace and their women's honor and dignity is respected. It was that sort of sentiment which encouraged the local clans there to sought Islamist support to help them rid the city of the brutal militias which for years had suppressed the local population. The days of warlord-rule isn’t after all over now that warlords like Madobe and Hirale are being push by both Kenya and Ethiopia; With them at the helm, Xinn is right to oppose them because logic would dictate that they although not a curse to either Kenya or Ethiopia, are indeed a curse to the local population there who they have suppressed before in the past. A long term solution comes not on the back of foreign tanks but through an all inclusive planning which Azania, Madobe, Hirale, etc. is hard to say have fulfilled since the local population there aren’t without grievances. Either way Xinn stands correct on opposing them, because while AMISOM is fighting to secure the capitals peace, both Kenya and Ethiopia are trying to impose two hated tools (namely Madobe and Hirale) on Kismayo’s population. Theirs is truly a selfish one and sold as a along term solution when it’s far from it. Abtigiis;755675 wrote: He enthusiastically sings for Mahiga’s road map, something which the TFG doesn’t seem to embrace with the same fervor. Mahiga’s road map supports Federalism whereas the TFG (in particular Sharif and his cohorts) are only interested on a failed central platform which suits their own selfish interests. Any sane Somali would support the neutral Mahiga then these known flip flopper’s. Abtigiis;755675 wrote: The question remains if Xinnfanin doesn’t agree with all that the TFG is doing, how can he claim he is supporting it? No sane person would agree with his government on very thing and I’m actually shocked that you would ask such a question. Qof fiyoow inaad tahay anigu shaki baba iga jiraa.
  12. Both President Farole and PM Gaaz spoke in support of Kenya's move, so who are you to still insist otherwise? Give it a break already sxb.
  13. Puntland Leader Welcomes Kenya's Move to Enter Country: So Carafaat, who told you Puntland is against Kenya's move to help rid Kismaayo of the Shabab and installing an admin there? Our President Dr. Farole is on board and so are the majority of Puntlandites.
