An Ethiopian delegation led by two military intelligence generals Visits Kismayo

Recommended Posts

An Ethiopian delegation led by two military intelligence generals departed from Kismaayo after meeting with President Ahmed Madoobe for three hours.

They were dispatched to Kismaayo at the request of President Farmaajo who pleaded with PM Abiy Ahmed.

They came with two demands: first, to reopen registration for presidential candidates and second to lift blockade of FGS officials from arriving the city.

President Madoobe informed them that the decision to reopen the registration is up to the Jubbaland Electoral Commission, and that as a candidate, he can’t interfere with the electoral commission. Second, he told them that the decision to prohibit FGS officials from visiting Kismaayo was taken by the cabinet based on security and electoral interference information. And to change that decision, the cabinet would have to meet again, which they can’t during Presidential elections.

The Ethiopian delegation left Kismaayo without achieving any of its objectives.

This info from a contact.

Here we go another long term headache being brought to Somalia for some short term problem. Allowing Ethiopians to deal with district level issues in a neighboring country. Once you invite Ethiopians down to minute issues, you allow or invite them to interfere at will even when time comes you do not want them to do so.

 

This is also unmitigated disaster for Ethiopia, being done for temporary relief to PM Abiy. What ever happens in Jubaland will happen in Kililka. The litle support PM Abiy has among Somalis in Kililka will be even more shaky after this news makes its way to Jigjiga and Addis.

Bad idea, bad steps all the way. Ethiopia and Kenya may go about it diffeently, but have no different security interests

That is bad strategy and weakness from the Farmaajo government. If you can not change the leadership of Ahmed Madoobe through made in Somalia mechanism, don't introduce other to help you, especially dogs that can not bite.

We all thought that Ethiopia had some influence in Ahmed Madoobe since he was their prefered leader, yet things had changed since. On the other hand , weak and incapable Ethiopia is always good news for Somalia.

Folks, Ahmed Madoobe will be back, and it is time for Farmaajo to accept the result and workout something for the benefit of all involved.

I find it very interesting (base hypocrisy really) that Hysom was chased amid fanfare for “interfering in Somalia’s internal affairs” while Ethiopia and James Swan are expected by N&N to be saved in Jubbaland.

This will end up creating unsolvable friction between Farmaajo and Moodabe. It may extend to further institutions.

The objection for having neighboring countries in 2006 was precisely for that reason.

Ethiopia is trying to hit two birds with one stone. Jubaland and Kililka.

The Os including ONLF are determined to have solid base and home base in all 3 countries. Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. All three countries policy to each other will be influenced, if not determined by the Os. That is now almost a reality.

Ethiopia and Kenya are trying to shift their relations to the Oromo and Somalia and Ethiopia are trying to shift to the other regions, other than Puntland or Jubaland. This is bound to fail.

Farmaajo should have tried by using Djibouti instead of Ethiopia.

 

Any Somali should never forget that Kenya and Ethiopia will never be opposed to each other. As a matter of interest.

Source Nin wayn ma'ahan,

Si' kastaba Ethiopia iyo Kenya labaduba way joogeen Somalia ayagoo koofiýadoodii cagaar looga dhigay wax cusub ma'ahan

Ethiopia ninkay iska ilaalinaysay ilaalin mayso, kenyana sidoo kale

Taageeraayaasha madoobe marna Ethiopia waxay noo tusayaan cadaw farmàajo la socda, marna waxay ka doonayaan dimuquraadiyad iyo walaaltinimo.

Sababta aragtidayda ku kaliftayna waa inay kenya kasii jeedeeyaan indhaha shacabka oo baryahaan dambe si toos ah u laab kicisay

Arinta axmad madoobe

Waa jaahil aan waxba ù kala saarnayn una dhaqma sidii ina iley iyo nadaamkii luyu police'ka oo kale.

Wuxuu samaystay kutlad ama casaabad lacagta dhuxusha la qaybsata oo ka kooban qabiilada oo dhan

Hadaad doonayso inaad ogaato wax yar oo dhaliila ka sheeg nadaamkiisa adoo jooga kismayo.

Wuxuu sameeyay labo madaxweyne ku xigeen, soomaaliya waa la arkay nin labo xaas iyo ka badan leh, balse waligeed lama arag nin labo madaxweyne ku xigeen samaysamta, oo labada gees ka fadhiyaan oo si raali ahna u ilka cadaynaya.

Haduu dib isu doorto mar kale iskuna haleeyo kenya waxay keenaysaa cawaaqib aad u xun aragtidayda.

And if he is not re-elected and the reason is because of Ethiopia, the consequences are worst.

Which one do you choose?

What many do not understand is the real reason Farmajo is interested in Jubbaland, it is not the presidency but rather who controls the elders, these elders will be crucial for farmajos re election.

We know Puntland is lost to him, so is Galmudug. He is/was betting on Jubbaland, Hiiraan, and SWS, and Banadir region primarily for his re election but the numbers are not there.

Maybe that is why he hired Alshabab to force the elders to vote for him come 2020.

I am sure heard the rumours that alshabab is funded by Qatar, just like ISIS. And we know Qatar funds farmajo.

The question then becomes, why has alshabab decided to “re educate” the elders 1 year before the election? They have never bothered with FGS election before, and did in fact discourage the elders.

Something awful is cooking.

North, South, Middle and everywhere must work together to topple Farmajo before he become the monster of yesteryear.

But he is too stupid and is toppling himself

They are trying to kill Moodabe at the source, break the peace at Kismayu and make it a war zone.

Very cruel and cowardly way to fight a man. Total disregard to the people.

Even if they win it will be winning the battle, losing the war.

OO maybe you can enligten us on what these images represent.

Why was Omar Ghele sidelined earlier and now he is seen as the saviour of Farmajo

Apparently the Ethiopian Forces that were sent to capture Kismaio Airport were not from the AMISom contingent. 

They were part of the 15,000 Ethiopian Special forces that have been occupying Bay and Bakool regions for the last 24 years.
