Yusur Abrar: A Candidate for Ministry of Finance or the Central Bank in Politics Posted March 6, 2017 @galbeedi said: Well , as usual you are complimenting one another by accusing this fine lady as tribal because she visited Hargeisa and dinned with wife of former president Rayaale. Mr.Oodweyne , you mentioned that you saw her once along the wife of Rayaale dinning in Hargeisa. People visit their families as they wish, but busy and professional people usually go home once in a decade, especially those who live in North America. You both agree that by taking a job at the Somali Central Bank in 2012, she is tribal and against Somaliland. That is the most ridiculous and clannish statement to justify your attack on this fine lady. In 2011, Fowsiya Haji Aadan had a political party in Somaliland , which failed to pass for the second round, yet after one year she left for Mogadishu and she became the foreign minister of Somalia. I bet non of you said she was tribal by leaving Somaliland. What a logic. In fact , there was some officials who left Hargeisa while they were directors, and then joined directly the Somali government. Further more , nowadays, I do not think any self respecting professional person would join the incompetent, corrupt, disorganized and family run government of Siilaanyo. Who would join Cakuuse, Cadaani, Biixi and others ? I don't think so. @galbeedi said: I do not want to over kill, but I know their family. Their father was a diplomat and died with plain crush in Somalia in 1981. The whole family is educated. last year when I visited iMinneaplois, I met her older sister who is a medical doctor, and she was managing a healthcare company in the suburb of Minneaplis. They never involved any thing tribal or sectarian, Successful people do not have time for tribal issues. I Could say by far the "Abraar" family is one of the most educated and successful Somali families in north America. Imagine three women all having not only advanced degrees, but also successful profession. We all want to fight corruption, but the best people who could help succeed are hard to find. As they say, the gold is hidden. Also, the best people are busy with their lives. If Farmaajo targets those kind of people , there will hope. Galbeedi, You need to relax, my friend. What part of my praises of Ms. Abrar did you not understand? Or is it the simple admission of the perennial Somali characteristic of clannism that has got you in a huff & puff? If we would just honestly accept this characteristic, endemic in the Somali people, we might be able to move forward. But yet, you wish to regale us with 'Somalinimo' and 'Somaliweyn' monologues when at the mere mention of a clansman or clanswoman, you head for the 'spear'. You're too far gone to see that you're simply proving my point that for Somalis 'Clan is Everything!'. Then you go on with exaggerated stories of how that particular family is so exceptional for achieving 'Graduate Degrees' and 'Successful Professions'. That only shows how tiny your socialiazation circle is(clannism, anyone)???. I can show you in one N. American city 4 families from Galkacayo that have achieved just as much, if not more. It's 2017, and Somalis in the diaspora have achieved accreditations only dreamed of by their parents. The Abrars are an accompished family but they are not unique in that characteristic. It's not 1954! So to calm your tribal passions, here I go again: Once again, Ms. Abrar on the personal and financial level is of the highest integrity and honesty. But as a person who chose to be in the public/political realm she's open to criticism for the political choices and swaps she makes in her public profile. In the same way that Fowzia Y. Adan is open to criticism for similar flip-flopping. This is a political forum where those in the political sphere are criticized daily. Get used to it, even if it's your clansmen or clanswomen.
