Cheeseman is now an international pariah (according to Western thinktanks/policy analysts)

Recommended Posts

According to close sources that have very good connection to the parallel world of Diplomacy and Policy Analysis including ThinkTanks. They have and some have greatly diminishing their engagement with Cheeseman's gov't. 

According to the sources,  SRSG Haysom is due to appear at Washington Think Tank around June this year, he will disclose a lot of things.

Those guys are not vindictive, they move on,,.plus still works for UN.

True, in the sense that they won't display in public. But through negative reports (not necessarily directly by themselves) but feeding others to doing the dirty work.

Whose these sources?

And what's there to disclose?

:D

As old man @galbeediwoud say "my sources told me". :D

Not too sure 100% what will come out but it is most likely negative outlook and feeling of frustration with Villa AMISom.

He probably heard from  Seedi Math  and others who entertain them. No faith, so much of think thanks and foundations. Even  Kurds are more realistic.

‘Collapsed state’ Somalia, bedeviled by militant Islam, bites UN hand that feeds it

UNITED NATIONS — After decades of turmoil resulting from drought, civil conflict, famine, armed militias, terrorists and even pirates, the East African country of Somalia remains a shattered state. And while massive international humanitarian assistance from the United Nations and the international community may have mitigated the worst results of the cyclical famines and somewhat stabilized a teetering security situation, now, in a fit of anger, the Somali government has ousted the UN’s chief envoy in the country.

After UN Representative Nicholas Haysom challenged a number of human rights abuses which included the deaths of protesters, the Somalis claimed the envoy “acted as though he is the head or the ruler of Somalia.” Somalia’s Foreign Minister Ahmed Isse Awad proclaimed the UN envoy “was no longer welcome”.


UN officials were caught off balance with the abrupt action from a government which is largely dependent on UN aid and largesse. Secretary General Antonio Guterres expressed his deep regret over the Government’s declaration that his envoy was persona non grata.

Hillel Neuer of UN Watch tweeted ironically, “Jan. 1: Somalia joins UN Human Rights Council Jan. 2: Somalia expels UN envoy for questioning their killing of protesters.

While most readers see Somali through the image of the movie Blackhawk Down, an account based on an epic 1993 battle in Mogadishu between U.S. special forces and warlords, the sad fact remains that for more than 25 years and despite some glimmers of hope, the situation in Somalia still reflects the undertow of poverty, lawlessness, and expanding Islamic extremist ideology.

In a periodic briefing before the Security Council, Nicholas Haysom, head of the UN’s Assistance Mission (UNSOM) stated, “The humanitarian crisis is among the world’s most complex,” adding, “while conditions have improved over the last year, 4.2 million people still require assistance, two thirds of them children.”

“Around 1.5 million people are severely food insecure at crisis or emergency levels and 2.6 million are internally displaced,” he stated. The UN’s 2019 Humanitarian Response plan, “targets 3.4 million people, or 81 per cent of the 4.2 million people in need of assistance, requiring $1.1 billion for its implementation.”

Yet Haysom stressed, “Somalia has laid the foundations to make significant progress in 2019,” while underscoring the complex political challenges facing the fractious central government. “Achieving this will require all role players to pull in the same direction.”

This remains easier said than done in a warlord and militia rich environment.

Significantly Haysom warned that the “Al-Shabab remains the biggest source of insecurity in Somalia. Despite the ongoing operations to degrade the terrorist group, which has the capacity to attack citizens and target electoral delegates, Somali security forces and the African Union Mission in Somalia.”

Haysom’s comments came in the wake of his unceremonious ouster from the war-torn country.

But what effect will Somalia’s rash actions have towards a UN which is trying to draw down some longstanding missions and operations?

The African Union Mission, now deployed for over a decade, comprises a five country military force of nearly 20,000 troops from Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda. Notably this is not a UN peacekeeping mission but a regional solution approved by the Security Council.

Back in October there was an intent to scale down the Mission, but the troop reductions were put on hold till the end of February. Given the precipitous actions by the Somali central government in Mogadishu, now the UN and wider international community may be reluctant to invest deeper in this fractured state of fifteen million people.

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) describes the country; “Since 1991, Somalia has essentially been a collapsed state and has experienced chronic food insecurity, widespread violence, and recurring droughts and floods. The social costs of war have been enormous.” Current American aid stands at $312 million.

Somalia comprises the Horn of Africa strategically abutting the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean.

The Islamic jihadi Al Shabab organization, a particularly lethal offshoot of the Al Qaida network, controls large swaths of this country and regularly targets civilians.

Despite Somalia’s political quagmire, there’s some good news from the wider region; neighboring Ethiopia has settled its long standing frontier tensions with Eritrea. Somali pirate attacks on merchant ships transiting the nearby waters in the Indian Ocean have been nearly stopped by multinational NATO maritime patrols.

The Security Council “underlined that 2019 would be a critical year for Somalia, and called on its leaders to work together to advance political and security reforms.” And maybe not bite the hand that feeds it?

Listen to this spleen-spitting imbecile, accusing others of "taking-notes" from some one call a "brother-in-law-Matt". Which I presume, he is talking about, slyly, the chap by the name of Matt Bryden and his wife.

Must this non-entity stoop so low as to talk about some alleged brother-in-law telling anyone else of anything of substance, when on the other hand in fact half of the world knows the game of Villa Somalia is over. And it's over in the political sense of the kind the international community (IC) could have any confidence for it, going forward, from here on out.

Apparently, when this two-bit-cowardly non-entity who can't hack in real life in "liberating" his own region of Sool (as he is been promising us all through out the years since 2007) is shown to be what he is, namely a two bit yellow-bellied sniffling coward, he always run to his "comfort blanket" of talking about Matt Bryden and his wife.

And he does that, as if that will be anything to which to resort against others with it, given that he is coward of the sort the whole Somali peninsula can see it. And no talk of Matt this or Matt that, can safe his reddening blushes in here.

Moreover, he talks about Kurdish and others having no faith and whatnot. Well, far be it for him to disparage the likes of Kurdish, who are fighting to this day to "correct" the "mistake of history", so that they will have a land of their own, one can say the following:

Firstly, it's apparent that it was his ilk who tun up in Mogadishu whilst being on top of a Tigrean's tanks just to subdue others who were there (as the manner Col Yey did). Subsequently, they are the nearest Somalis have of a folks who have "no faith" in themselves other than to borrow the muscles from others.

Secondly, it's the same "borrowing-of-muscles" that is going on right now in Villa Somalia, Particularly with the Ethiopians who were asked to murder innocent folks in Baidoa in recent month. And this in turn is actually betoken of the fact of how those currently living in Villa Somalia have "no faith" in themselves at all just to amount to much without having the likes of the Ethiopian's forces shoring them up, politically, from the rear-end, indeed.  

Thirdly, it's also the same "borrowing-of-muscles" that is what is going on in Jubba-land as we speak in here. Given, that, the Kikuyu's stooge who is there at the behest of these Kenyans is essentially dependent on the "borrowed muscles" from others. Which is another "indication" of how some are in perpetual state of having "no faith" in themselves at all, indeed.

So it actually ill-behooves of someone like him to accuse others of having "no faith" in  themselves. When all Somalis, from one end of this earth to the other, on the other hand, can see as to who are the "real folks" who are relying on others, for they lack the "faith-in-themselves" (as it were).

I am afraid, the only cretin in here of SOL, who gets things so comprehensively wrong, repeatedly, or others may not even rely on for him to know his back-side from his elbow, is none other than you, dear ninny.

Which in turn account for the endless drivel in which daily you share with us in here, whereby I do, of course, take the pleasure of dismantling it. Hence, not knowing the trees from the woods is the sort of the "condition" in which you are belaboring under it in here, no matter how much you may have liked to do a bit of a "projection" onto others about it, mate.

Suldaanka is reduced to trolling. Forget your infatuation with anything western , they will never teach you what is right and what is wrong.

The UN has failed Somalia and it is about time Somali leaders should rely  on their own people "Waa inay sku tashadaan". Turkey in one year has done more to rebuild Mogadishu than the UN did in 25 years as one UN official admitted.

That was not the point really. We know the UN is useless in many ways. But it has been a solid partner "Diplomatically" with Mogadishu. I think you underestimate how much the UN has done in terms of trying to put together Humpty-Dumpty that is South Somalia. You can not blame the UN for the warlordism, factionalism, terrorism, Islamism, Clannism, etc. That is inherantly South Somalia's traits. 

What I am referring here to is the unprofessional conducts of the rookie Cheeseman.  What soverneigty are you trying to keep? when your a*hole can be seen from the outter space.  First, cover the a*hole, before you worry about putting on a tie.

It is the job of the UN to decide who should be the leader of South West and I guess you don't find strange that they were advocating for former AlShabaab Robow who has blood on his hands. In fact the UN official exceeded his authority and they is why the secretary general quickly replaced him.  One thing I an agree with you is that the Federal government should get its act together and concentrate on defeating AlShabaab and removing Amisom and all foreigners armies from the South.

If you were the Gov't of Somalia, then yes. Because the UN assumes a lot the Gov'tal responibiilites including protecting Villa Somalia itself. Duh! :D 

 

Anyway, this is a nice read. The UK's Brief Paper on Situation in Somalia. As previously reported, the IC has given Cheeseman until Jul 2019 to get back on track vis-a-vis agreements made during London Conference 2017.

Cheeseman and Co have been excluded from attending World Economic Forum. 

Now he won't even have a chance to talk to an empty conference room either.
