Republic of Somaliland delegation lands in Egypt

Recommended Posts

This may have something to do with UAE being hyper active in and about Somaliland.

If there is something all Somalis trust the folks of Somaliland is that, any Somaliland leadership, have never fallen for the childish games of Arabs or Africans so far to harm their fellow Somali.

There was nothing the Egyptians did not offer last year for a military base in Somaliland, but were declined. Somaliland recognized that the Egyptians sole interest was the Millenium DAM in Ethiopia and not to help Somali people.

Somaliland and Egypt have a very long shared history. Aside from the Pharaohs, they shared the same governance under the Turkish Othoman Empire. In fact, for close to 400 years, Berbera and Zeila came under the Pasha Dynasty of Egypt. 

After the Othomans, once again both Somaliland and Egypt became protectorates under the British Empire, the only two in Africa the only two countries under such arrangement.

Aren't you buttering the Egyptians more than what they even claim themselves.

If you have a governor assigned, you can not be protectorate. The reason Somaliland signed protectorate is the British had intended/came to colonize her. The reason Egyptians became protectorate is they themselves invited Britain to protect them from Sudan and Ethiopia. Their Khadive was to be overthrown since he lost a big war in Ethiopia and 3 small battles in Sudan and Abyssinia, more than 30,000 dead. Some brigade not a single Egyptian survived (Afar area led by Swiss Col. Munsinger) Afraid that Abyssinians and or Sudanese will march on Egypt, they begged the British to take care of them.

When is the day Egyptians ever did any good for Somaliland or Somalia in last 50 years. So much for friendship historical..etc.

A year and half ago the Egyptians spent a week in Somaliland with their chief of security, deputy foreign minister...etc. Nothing historical, friendly...about it.

This is UAE alone and the British will not take to it kindly.

I don't think  Egyptian  cats should be trusted  there is a reason for this . The Egyptians have always been anti Somaliland due to the nile  conflict. Xosni Mubarak  the Arab  league fellow  ki  macasha Wayna  Even kan  morsi eeh ikhwaaniga ah they always had one policy towards Somaliland.  Let their president sisi  visit Somaliland.
