It is Time for transitional government to avoid more clashes, and think about relocating the capital

^you can't save anything when the mindset that prevails is 'unukaa leh'. This is not a way to run a country or belong to a country for that matter.  You're 100% correct about foreign involvement but it's hard to turn it around when you have that sort of mindset.

I would support moving the capital to Borama. 

Only if Muse, the menace, is gone and our Galbeedi is the mayor.

Borame is very beautiful city, but just close to Ethiopia, you just don't place your capital next your arch enemy .

Guys, it takes expert planning to choose location, the same thing many countries did, that moved moved or planning to,  like  Kenya, Pakistan, Egypt , Australia, India .

You take into account not only national security, which Mogadishu make fail now, but also climate, Mps must live in beautiful calm, secure, peaceful,place they can  live, work and make decisions

Both Borama and Garoowe are close to the border with Ethiopia.

Since the capital became a hostage the parliament mps must have courage in debate openly. This is a must.

Here are the cities that could became the next capital"

Baraawe, 

Ceerigaabo

Baidgabo.

I thin Baraawe is the ideal capital.

Future governmet should sell public bonds to the Somali people and use that to finance the building of new cities/capital.

I would buy Somali government bonds. Good way to invest in the country and free it from the foreign “donor” predators.

We need leadership with a 50 year plan. We need to move on from these local squabbles and think big.

The Capital doesn’t necessarily have to be also the Seat of Government. Many countries with less troubles have re-located their Seat of Governments.  

Funny thing is that African countries tend to move their Seat of Governments away from the coast to the hinterland. Coastal cities are much more suited for trade and tourism. 

I am sure Mogadishu residents must be fed up with politics dominating their daily lives, trade and traffics for that matter. Mogadishu could really flourish as a Capital with Commercial and Touristic centre, without politics polarising  and paralyzing people’s daily lives. It’s common sense.

And last point, one can also develop a new locality for the Seat of Government, it doesn’t have to be an existing City.

And lastly, If small towns as Adado, Dhuusamareeb and Garowe, can be developed in to bustling towns, why not a new Town that becomes the seat of government, preferably in the hinterland and not on the coast. We don’t want the politicians and civil servants to enjoy themselves to much or pre-occupy themselves to much with coastal or ‘makhirian’ games. 
 

Could this work?
