28 years on, Somaliland still demining Siyad Barre's merciless mining of population centres.

Recommended Posts

A brief history, Halo Trust was one of the first NGOs to arrive in Hargeisa back in 1990s. They demined millions of mines which were planted strategically by Siyad Barre's Somalia National Army in and around urban centres and major nomadic grassing areas.

Miinadu waxay ka hartay dagaalkii 77 gobolada soomaaliya oo dhan way ku jirtaa ilaa maanta.

snm wax sidaa u wayn oo miino laysaga difaaco ma'ahayn, taangiyo iyo hub culusna maysan lahayn awoowe.

Inta badan waxaa soo hor mari jiray caruurta iskuulka oo gabdho u badan ayagoo qaylinaya ama dhagaxaan ku tuuraya ciidamada.

Dhawr iyo sideetankii wakhti sidaa u fog ma'ahan hadaad nin yar ahayd, ama aadan dunidaba joogin, warayso dadka aan jaadka cunin.

Siyaad barre carruurta soomaaliyeed abahood yuu ahaa markuu dhunkadana ilkihiisoo dhan yaa muuqan jiray farxad qalbiga kasoo go'day darteed

Wuxuu siin jiray waxbarasho lacag la'aana

Caafimaad lacag la'aana

Waalidiintood oo dabaqada dhexe u badnaa ama shaqaale dawladeed ahaa

Soomaaliya waxay ahayd dalka aduunka ugu quruxda badan.

Waxaad ku wareertay waa dacaayadda iyo sawirada faraha badan, oo snm ugu tala gashay inay aqoonsi ku doonato oo ay lasoo baxday buburkii dawladda dhexe ka dib.

Nimankaan aad muhaahidiinta ugu yeertaan, been kuu sheegi maayee, mid guriga kasoo bixi jiray kuma jirin 90kii ka hor, habro toob bay u badnaayeen.

Dagaal waa jiray balse sidaa uma waynayn, hadii aad doonayso inaad si fiican u fahamto waxaad is waydiisaa

Maxaa gooni isu taagga loogu dhawaaqi waayay 88'kii 89'kii oo waliba dawladdii dhexe sii daciifaysay?

Miinadu dadka ha laga saaro waa shaqo fiican oo waliba sawaab ama ajar badan, balse anti tank yaa snm laysaga difaacay waa sheeko raqiis ah oo aan macno ku fadhiyin..

Waa halkii, Suldaanka, intaasina waa saaladii naxliga aheyd ee kugu dhaganeyd. Inkasta oo dawadii aan halkan kugu siiney ee taariikhda sooyaalka Soomaaliyeed aheyd ee lagu siiyey, aad wali la ducaneyso, oo ay ku soo dhaafi la dahay waxa kugu dhagan. Laakiin marba in ayaa kaa soo go'aysa, sida muuqata, oo aad wadhaq kasoo siineysaa.

Saaxiib, iska duco oo naxliga iska soo "dacar-saar". Sababta oo ah Somaliland iyo dadkeedu, yar iyo weyn, waa kala yaqaaniin ninkii "Mahadho u loogey iyo ninkii Masalaha ugu lisey". Waxna ma weydiiyaan, mid adiga oo kale ah oo lunsan.

Ceel Bardaale waa Waqooyiga Gabiley, dhanka badda. Xabashida ayaa halkaana laga ilaalinaayay :D

 

 

PAVING A SAFE ROAD TO PROSPERITY IN SOMALILAND

0th April 2017 | Somalia & Somaliland

Ahmed Nuur Aw Nuuh owns a small business in Ceel Bardaale, Somaliland, where he buys milk and vegetables from local farmers to sell at the market in the town of Gabiley. A town that should have only been 23 km away. But landmines were laid on the only road between the two towns during the country's civil war and subsequent conflicts, hindering safe access to food, and forcing authorities to keep the road blocked, prohibiting its use for years. The road was so heavily mined that some were clearly visible. Residents from Ceel Bardaale wanting to visit Gabiley must take an alternate route that stretches 44km around the towns. 

This diversion doubles the journey times and fuel costs for local farmers and traders, preventing residents like Ahmed from providing for their families. 

In August 2016, with funding from Ireland, Germany, and the United States, HALO began clearing the suspected sections of the road using manual demining teams. Shortly after demining began, two anti-personnel mines were found.   

After months of work, HALO was able to reopen the road back to local villagers in late 2016, providing safer access to the vital services of transport and trade for the community and cutting the distance in half for travellers.  By clearing the mines, the cost of bringing goods to markets in Gabiley and even further towns has been reduced, impacting local farmers and traders like Ahmed - whose income supports his ten children.

Suldaanka,

I really think that the HALO trust, in which late Princess Diana was a patron of this outfit will long be remembered as one of the unsung heroes of Somaliland's normalization of the land (or the rehabilitation of the land) as well as the returned of a normal pastoral existence to many regions in Somaliland.

For without them we couldn't have done it, in-terms of any kind of a rural economical development and the agricultural re-establishment of the country as a whole. Particularly considering the number of the deadly mines in which the Gen. Barre's forces have left behind on the ground.

In fact, I think, if I am not mistaken, that, Angola on one hand, and Laos, on the other hand, which in turn has the highest number of mines on the ground (dropped as it was by US's air-force) are the only two countries that had more known deadly mines in their country than Somaliland, at least if you count how much of mines HALO Trust took it out of Somaliland from 1991 onward.

And, in the case of Laos, which is the worse in the world, there are endless shiny little mines which was, as I said, dropped by US's air-force planes in late 1960s and early 1970s in to that country. And therefore, they are found on top of the ground in abundance proportion of it, whereby the rural kids keep on picking them up to play with it. For they think they are toys, and, then, off bang they go with a deadly consequences for those rural kids who were playing with them.

Halo Trust iyo Danish Demining Group (DDG) labadu ba shaqo aad u qiimo leh ayay ka sameeyeen Somaliland. Maanta Somaliland waxay leeday hayad u gaar ah oo dhanka miino saarka ah oo aqoon dheer u yeeshay sida loo helo, loo saaro, loona qarxiyo.

"Waqooyiga gabilay dhanka badda xiga hadii miino lagu aasay waxaa aasay waa snm sababtoo dawlad miino uma aasto dad iska garab rarato ah"

Afwayne kuwii wakiilka uga ahaa waqooyi waagaa, ayaa ahaa kuwo aan dawladnimo waxay tahay garab maray oo reernimo iyo aargoosi gamuuray dib ugu noqday. Hadaba canaasiirtii is biirsatay waxay xisaabta isu gaysteen ku heleen inay dadka dhulka iska leh ka rarri karaan oo kuwo aan dhalan ku beeri karaan. Waa caqliga canaasiirtii Afwayne isku maaweeliyeen.

Waxyaabaha qosolka badan, Hargeisa waxa dhacday mar kali ah inay ku so dareereen Qaxoontigii 1977ka so qaxay Ethiopia, waxyaabaha ugu yaabka badnaa waxa ka mid ahaa in reer Qaxoonti ah iska soo ag dego reer kale, yidhaahdo hantida maguurtada ah sida guriga ama fooq ama business, anaga ayaa la wareegayna, deedna Dawlad ku sheegta warqado been abuur ah laga so qaadan jiray. 

Kolka Afwayne dawlad lagu sheegi kari maayo, waxay ahayd qabiil shaad dawladeed xidhan. 

Taariikhda waxa qora kuwa guulaysta, kuwa laga guulaysto taariikhda ma qoraan. :D

horta siyaasadu dan joogto ah ayay leeday, saaxib joogto ah ma laha. Waa' kasta iyo waayihiisa ayaa la hadlaa, arinku 1989 wuxu taagna Somali inta xalaashaha ah iyo intii xaaran ku naaxa ahayd. :D

Laakin, hal arin ayaa Video aan ka guntaday, waa "In Afwayne laga xoreeyo dhamaan geyiga Somaliyeed" hada Waqooyi kali ah maha!!!. Which is exactly what happened in 2 years. 

Taa ayaa la yidha, kalsooni buuxda. Hadii shalay isago jabhad ah kalsoonida lahaa, maanta oo dawlad iyo dhaqaale iyo xidhiidh intaba aan leenahay, u daahi mayno cadawga.
