Farmaajo must appoint a new prime minister from Galmudug to prepare for the next election and extend the government at least for one more year.

I was trying to write this article a week ago when the cabinet was divided on the Dhuusamareeb issue. Half of the cabinet including heavy weights like Dr. Bayle, deputy vice premier  Khadar Guleed, Foreign minister Ahmed Cawad, Jplanning minister Jamaal and others objected the moves Khayre made on the issue. Furthermore, like most doomed former Somali prime ministers before him (Cumar Sharmaarke, C/weli Gaas) , he decided to challenge the president and jump ship at the last leg of the journey.

Khayre has been playing with the fire and was appearing to maneuver on possible challenge to the president. Three weeks ago, the president wrote a letter to the finance minister to save guard the treasury and notify the president and major government expenditures from the national bank. Dr. Bayle forwarded the message and informed that any major expenditure other than salaries must be approved by the minister. The bank governor showed Dr. Bayle a letter overidding his concern written by the prime minister. That was when I realized the long journey of Khayre to be over. 

The Farmaajo government and his leadership was faltering for the last six months. Since Khayre realized that he will not come back as a prime minister for the second time and was unwilling to push for an extension of at least one year for the government, he begun to slow down the government process. While he succeeded to hold elections and form a viable leadership in Galmudug, it took over a year and half to set up the Galmudug administration.

Since Khayre is unwilling to extend the government for one more year to prepare the election, Farmaajo has no choice but to appoint a new prime minister. It is the duty of the next prime minister to gain the confidence of the parliament and get extension to prepare for the next election. Khayre must be praised for his quick acceptance of the new change. 

The agenda of the Farmaajo government was weakening due to the rivalry of the prime minister which was hidden from the public. Many of had head the rumors loud and clear, but were willing to hold the fire and wait for the sky to clear. The disaster at the Djibouti conference has shown the weakness of the Somali government. A British diplomat visited Hargeisa and encouraged Muuse Biixi to reject everything he agreed before the meeting and read a letter highlighting the British and former protectorate. The British diplomat argued that the whole affair was concocted by America and Ethiopia without their input and told Muuse to reject the pressure and promised him diplomatic cover.

The farce Dhuusamareeb conference also had exposed the whole affair and their ability to agree on anything. How can you spend two weeks , especially for the regional leaders and one whole week for the top leadership and all you proclaim is to meet again in few weeks? It shows that there are no work, process or agenda going in Somalia and in Mogadishu. If a the top leadership, including president, prime minister, some of the cabinet and others could spent weeks out of their office without in worry of the job they left behind, you know there is no work being done in Mogadishu. 

At this stage, the next logical move of Farmaajp is to nominate a prime minster from Galmudug. The new leader of Galmudug Mr. Mohamed A. Kaariye , Qoor Qoor,  has shown a great leadership and patience in peace and building the needed compromises among the Galmudug people.For the last few weeks he was acting like a natural Somali leader open to dialogue and brotherhood. His ability to reconcile with his opponents and even appoint some of them within his cabinet has earned him a great deal. The dusty town of Dhuusamareeb has shown its hospitality and its ability to host the current Somali regional and federal leadership. Thanks to Mr. Qoor Qoor, Galmudug is on the map for the right reasons. 

While certain politicians of Galmudug agitated against Farmaajo, its public , mostly abstained from any conflict and supported the president. While Fiqi, C/raxman C/shakur and others campaigned, most of the Galmudug people never took a tribal turn and have shown to refuse any open warfare. Some of my Galmudug friends say that they were tired of conflict since 1991, and are willing to concentrate on business and creating wealth. One of them told me that any new conflict in Mogadishu or their region will devastate their economic well being. In fact, others will openly say that, " we are not interested in power but on trade and commerce".

When six members of the security detail of C/raxman C/shakuur was shot dead by Banadir intelligence members, they did not retaliate, but decided to be peaceful opponents of Farmaajo. Also, despite the agitations of the opposition, Farmaajo also was never discouraged to engage the Galmudug people and visited their region as loyal Somalis who should be treated with respect. The time has come for Galmudug to be rewarded with leadership. We have not a prime minister who hails from Galmudug  since 1959, when late premier C/laahi Ciise held the post.

Galmudug should be the natural base of Farmaajo and his government to move forward, thus its imperative to nominate the next prime minister from Galmudug. It is only natural. At the moment it is hard to point the finger to one candidate . The current crops of Galmudug politicians do not reach at the level of being prime minister including Fiqi, Mahad Salad and others. 

At the moment, I do not have a list, but my first choice will be Dr. C/nasir Mohamed.

Dr. Abdinasir Mohamed is a Somali-American doctor who lived and worked in US state of North Carolina.

He said his motivation to join the race was due to injustice, poverty, lack of strong governance and level of unemployment in Somalia.

I am predicting Mahdi Guled as the PM until election time.

I see no way Farmaajo can survive under HG prime minister. He will be under house arrest as soon as he appoints him. .

It will be a natural alliance.

Khadar can not get a vote of confidence from the parliament. This has has been always the plan before Khayre showed up.

He has seven months left plus one year extension. If the next premier can not get one more year , then let Khadar finish the term

Well, Khayre has been dragging his feet since late 2019. If Farmaajo can not secure the capital , he doesn't deserve another term.

What do you know anyway. You are hiding in your London lot without even checking the obvious. This is not a secret, it is known throughout the politicians in the region. Do you only listen to Radio Hargeisa.

Everyone knows that Muuse Biixi had read the wrong paper, and after Djibouti made bold moves. The British flowed and approved more foreign aid especially the Somaliland fund while bringing the Dutch and the Danish.

The British had told Muuse to resist despite the pressure and he accepted the advice and delivered. Why would the British spend all these energy including training and advising  the security  agencies without being consulted of any moves with Somalia?

Stop farting and act like an adult. Okay?

Galbeedi there was nothing president Muse biixi agreed to prior to the talks. The talks failed before they even began. Because Somaliland didn't change its policy towards Somalia. The koonfurians refuse to honer any of the previous agreements such as airspace and not to politicise international aid. President biixi is a great strategist he knows their every move.

Farmaajo can not fight for two year extension. He will be hardly pressed and any chance of reelection. The thirteen months  Xaliimo yarey was talking about, is the only option if international community support it. 
In fact his changes is bigger if  the election happen sooner. It will be  Farmaajo Vs Sheikh Shariifo. Two clear different camp , even geopolitics.
