Omar Gheele is fueling conflict to destabilize Ethiopia by joining the coalition to overthrow Abiy Ahmed.

Although most Somalis have not  gained anything meaningful in terms of stable and functioning state or long term peace for the last 30 years , and the people who died and  those who were killed by  suicide bombers and other horrible means out number 10: 1 compared to those who suffred before 1991, still there are some who think they might have reached top of the mountain.

 

I understand here in SOL  there are some who genuinely fear an Ethiopian hegemony of Amara by any name regardless of the leader, yet I have a feeling that some Somalis,  who in their deluded mind think they have gained something through the TPLF,  are cheering for their return.  Aren't we supposed to flow the money and judge Abiy Ahmed by his actions toward the republic and that criteria should trump any other card?. The man has shown to respect the unity and territorial integrity of Somalia and so far has kept his word. The horn of Africa economic integration which Abiy Ahmed is spearheading could lift millions out of poverty and create wealth for the business-oriented Somalis who sit on the largest coast of Africa.

 

Furthermore, the unity,  freedom and visibility of the Ethiopian Muslims has increased under the leadership of Abiy Ahmed. You will be amazed how many women wearing Hijaab are seated in the parliament or within the cabinet including Somalis. Addis Abbaba has elected its first Somali member of parliament which is historic in its nature.  So, Somali republic and Muslims are both fairing well under Abiy led Ethiopia.

 

Bal hadaba geel jiruhu muxuu rabaa?

 

So what is the wondering and unprincipled nomad is after?

 

I understand that the separatists want to maintain their fake secession ideology and buy more time. Certainly they  do not favor a unity focused Ethiopia, I also understand  the likes of C/raxman Faroole who accused Farmaajo siding with two war mongers which means he is hurting for the loss of the TPLF,  and longing for those trips to kilometre 4 in Addis (Arat Kilo). Yet, how what about Djibouti and those  in Somali Galbeed cheering for the TPLF. 

Here is one called Dal Jire cheering for the TPLF day in and day out.

 

The chances are Djibouti dictator Omar Geelle might not even survive five more years despite many parasites from Hargeisa cheering for the despot. Wise people will tell you before Somalia collapsed , some of the major signs were people within the big cities despised each other ( Dadku way is naceen). When you see your illiterate neighbor ridding his ill-gotten Landcruiser and flashing money, you will wait the moment thing go south and the chances are  they will begin the rampage from their neighbor. Djibouti is at that stage. At the moment , police can beat you up and torture you because they are the only ones with the gun. When the Ethiopian conflict brings guns to Djibouti the ruling clan will be confronted and things could get ugly.

 

I see headline like 'Somali-Afar conflict in Djibouri'.  Yet, despite the bandwagon Omar Geele joined lately in order to take advantage of the Somali anarchy to prolong his reign and monopolize trade routes to Ethiopia,  , Djibouti rejected being Somali, and the Jesus community had forfeited their Somalinimo in 1967 in favor of clan power.

 

When the referendum took place in Djibouti in March of 1967, the French claimed that those who were in favor of French staying in Djibouti won poll despite the vote rigging.  Then In the summer heat of 1967,  after the vote, the French identified that those from Awdal community were the leading voices of the independent movement, thus they deported 10,000 people from the French Somaliland and many had died in the desert. Imagine with the Somali population of 40,000,  25% of them were thrown out. Trucks lined up in neighborhoods and without notice loaded their belongings and crossed the border. From 1977-1991 Somalis were restricted and deported for entering Djibouti while Ethiopians just jumped on the train.

 

After the referendum, the French removed the Somali name and called it the ' the territory of Affar and Issa' . He gave people ethnic and tribal cards with Afar being 01, Jesus community 02 and Awdal community 03. The Jesus community along the Afar welcomed this name change and discarded the French Somaliand.

In the last 40 years the Afar never hurt any Somali in Djibouti or in Ethiopia. Of course there are nomadic skirmishes between them and the Jesus community like any other, but they lived peacefully with the Somalis for a long time. In Djibouti the intermarriage is complete and today Afar girls wear Somali dresses like the 'Dirac" . Furthermore, they don't only border the Jesus community  in Ethiopia, but also Karanle and Gurgure in northern border sof Diredawa with zero conflict. They have waged a war against Omar Geelle , and in 1991 all Somalis in Djibouti including those without proper document were recruited to fight and stop their advance after they were promised citizenship cards. After the war all of those starved in Djibouti with zero help. 

But this time around, no one is dying to defend the despot, Omar Geelle. I heard Muuse Biixi is recruiting soldiers from Somaliland to defend Geelle while promising them a Djibouti passport. So, some of us will not buy the Somali vs Afar conflict in Djibouti framed by the despots and others who do not understand the game. 

 

Now, the Afar people are dying and fighting the TPLF who want to control the trade routes. Two weeks ago the TPLF massacred hundreds of Afar who refused to go along, and now Omar Geelle is fueling war in Siti region of Somali Galbeed with unnecessary deaths from both community for barren and desert like villages. It is true that the Afar had killed civilians in that region last week including women and children, and we strongly condemn them for their brutal actions. The issue of the Somalis inside the Afar region border could be either resolved by joining the Somali region through referendum if they are the majority or have their rights within the Afar administration who are fellow Muslims and nomads with similar culture. Somalis can not force the issue and relocate their villages within the Afar by force.  Afar ima Xukumayso caqli ma ahan

Yet, this is not the time for Somalis in Siti to confront or fight the Afar who are trying to fend of the the TPLF attacks.  Omar Geelle is part of the coalition that want to destabilize Ethiopia and overthrow Abiy Ahmed. According to reliable reports, when the TPLF reached the Addis-Djibouti Highway, they clandestinely transferred many family members of the top TPLF leadership family members dressed as Somali/Afar and reached Djibouti.

 

Joining the coalition to defeat Farmaajo doesn't cost Omar Geelle much, but to join the coalition against Abiy will not only cost Geelle, but the price will be very high for the people of Djibouti. Furthermore, some Somali youths in the region had blocked the train and the highway from Djibouti which is the lifeline of Ethiopia. This will not only hurt Ethiopia, but also damage the Djibouti economy.

 

 According to international reports, the TPLF has looted close to $20 billion dollars from the Ethiopian coffers and transferred to Djibouti, Sudan and Somaliland. Some of the money were American money allocated for the war on terror. Cabdi Illey used to transfer millions through a Somali Hawala called Kaah which has collapsed since the fall of the TPLF lost power. Also, major share of the money came from the engineering and weapons company led by the TPLF which sold arms to countries and entities in the region including Somaliland and Puntland. Those money were pocketed directly by the TPLF crooks.
 

The Ethiopian intelligence believe that most of that money is active in foreign capitals to buy access and fuel the media campaign targeted against the Abiy government.

 

Now, again what do the pro TPLF nomads want?

 

It is hard to get all the answers, but in my humble opinion, they fear the reversal of the regressive clan order they have gained with the help of Mengistu in the eighties and through TPLF in since 1991. Furthermore,  some might fear that other anti TPLF clans who were inaccessible to that regime might get some help and travel the same route as they did three decades ago. No wonder , I see Somalis some lamenting for the departure of the TPLF.

 

Finally, Omar Geelle has punched above his trying to control corrupt allies from Mogadishu, Garoowe, Hargeisa and Nairobi, but this time around he is biting more than he can swallow and might even bring his demise.

Anyone with a brain cell in their head would  by 1988 understood why the Jesus clan of Djibouti made the wise decision not to give up their sovereignty and join a corrupt hostile entity in the name of a non-existent "Soomaalinimo" whatever that means. In my opinion if Somaliland didn't join koonfuria, a union between Somaliland and Djibouti could have survived or even succeeded.

They were extremely fortunate and lucky not to join   corrupt n anarchist Somalia 

Extremely lucky, and agree with Tallaabo,  If SL also stayed away, could have possibly succeeded.

Well, this is the typical northern talking point about the union and the so called 'If". 

Yet, here were are not debating 1988 or even 1980, but 20 years earlier in the summer of 1967 . At the time Somalinimo and Somali nationalism was in its height. Getting back NFD was active, before the Arusha accord was signed , we had minor war with emperor Heile Salasie in 1964 , and Djiboutians were encouraged  to get rid of the French rule. 

So, There were no apparent Somali failure then. That decision was made by the precolonial tribes and the Afar who feared the Somali domination.

Even today, after 45 years, Djibouti has 60% unemployed population with highest cost of living in the world. Djiboutians could be in heaven on earth today if they get a cheap electricity in 50 degree heat and basic water. The whole nation serves less than 300 families. One might be even nostalgic of the French era were inflation was less than 1% a year.

You might say their decision in 1977 to be a sovereign was fine , but the decision was made earlier when Somalia was democratic and goal oriented.

1967 only? How about we go back six years earlier to 1961 and to the failed coup by the young Sandhurst trained soldiers from Somaliland who were disillusioned by the fake "Soomaalinimo" of the corrupt to the core Koonfurians? What about the protestations by the Somalilanders about the unfair marginalisation of their region and even the poem by Suldaan Timocadde were he blasted the apparent discrimination of the northerners by their Koonfurian dominated government? By the way that poem was composed way before 1967. Do you think the Jesus clan of Djibouti we unaware of what was going on in the infant Somali Republic and the fate of the naive Northerners who were utterly uneducated about the ugly characteristics of the Koonfurian clan politics? I guess you need to come up with a better reason as to why the citizens of Djibouti were wrong to go their separate way and not give up their sovereignty in the name of an unprofitable and downright dangerous "unity" with a region which turned out to be ungovernable and unstable from the beginning.

Ask the displaced, starving, and abused mothers and children in the refugee camps of the south if they preferred to live in their green and pleasant failed and dangerous country or in the hot desert cities of Djibouti.

Maakhiri is trying to pull a Cali Khaliif Galeyr miyaa?

In the end waala ogyahay meesha lagu maamusay aaskiisa qaran, laguna aasay the late barfasoor. Xamar lagama maarmo meeshaad rabtid joogee.

Having said that, what the likes of daneystiyaasha Reer Waqooyi  Bari ee Deni, Faroole, Gaas and co. have done to Reer Sool and Sanaag in the last two decades, I can understand their frustration. Qof kula sheeganaayo in uu kula dhashay, haddana rabo inuunan wax kula qeybsan, kaligiis iyo reerkiisa kaliya wax iska cunaan, adiga iyo reerkaagana la qadiyo.

MMA,

The old man did try, he was strung until the day of his passing. There is nothing for Sool and Sanaag in Hargeisa and Garowe. They might as well set up their own shop.

Does the dosed population of Djibouti has anything to do with an easy availability of Khat drug? 

What's wrong with them? Why can they either get rid if him or at least push him to make decent reform? 

I, for one,  don't think he's in charge anymore.  There are other people running the place for their own ends, obviously.
