Deceased Somali-Canadian lawyer's family refutes Somaliland police's claim of suicide - say he was killed while reclaiming land

The family of a Somali-Canadian lawyer who was found dead in his Hargeisa home in mid-July believe that he was killed as part of a land dispute and did not commit suicide as the local authorities have told them.

Gamal Ahmed Jimale, who also went by Gamal Gulaid, was a Canada-educated lawyer who practiced in Massachusetts, USA. 

On July 16, Gamal was found dead in the bedroom of his Hargeisa home by his maid. There was reportedly a handgun found by his side when the authorities came to investigate, and Gamal's death was ruled a suicide by the Somaliland Police.

However, members of Gamal's family, including his cousin Omar Kahin, believe that foul play was involved and that he was killed as part of an ongoing land dispute.

Kahin, who works as an accountant in Toronto, told HOL that Gamal's problems began when he travelled back to Hargeisa over a decade ago to reclaim a large plot of land that belonged to his father, Ahmed Mohamed Gulaid (Ahmed Jimale), a founding member of the Somali National Movement.

Gamal was reportedly planning to build a library on the family land.

When Gamal found that his father's land in Hargeisa was illegally sold by corrupt officials, which often occurs during land disputes in Somalia, he decided to put his legal background to use and go after the culprits through Somaliland's court system.

Kahin said that through influence and bribery, Gamal's enemies manipulated the court system so that they could hold on to the coveted property.

"Gamal was subject to years of humiliating hardship as the case was bungled in the justice system's bureaucratic maze and dragged through kangaroo courts which are greased by corruption and bribery."

While Gamal's civil case snaked through Somaliland's judicial system, Kahin said that an additional fictitious charge of assault was placed on him.

The case stemmed from a security guard employed by Gamal to guard the property at the onset of the land dispute. The security guard got into a fight with a trespasser, who Gamal believes was sent by the men trying to steal his land.

Kahin said the security guard was formally charged and sentenced years before Gamal's latest assault charge. He believes the indictment was meant to break his spirit and dissuade him from pursuing his property case.

Gamal ultimately lost the civil suit, and his father's land was awarded to the defendants.

Despite his legal problems, Gamal's cousin does not believe that he killed himself.

"Everyone who met Gamal knew he loved himself and life too much. He was a successful man who didn't have any financial problems. He had a loving family and a tight-knit circle of friends. He was an unlikely candidate for suicide."

Kahin added that he last spoke with Gamal in early July to wish him a happy Eid. He said they caught up for close to an hour and that Gamal seemed upbeat and in good mental health.

Kahin and other members of Gamal's family believe that their relative was murdered and that the Somaliland authorities are covering it up. They are calling for an investigation into his death by the Canadian government.

"We believe the (Somaliland) government is complicit in his sudden death, and we want an independent autopsy and investigation to be done by Canadian authorities as well as human rights organizations and civil society groups to condemn the killing of a Canadian lawyer."

      Waxa ku xigtay xukuumadii uu gadhwadeenka ka ahaa madaxwayne Cabdilaahi Yuusuf Axmed (2004 ilaa 2008 ) Alle ha u naxariisto e oo iyada lagu xamanayey in Ethiopia wadato, waxaana lagu soo dhisay magaalada Embaghati ee dalka Kenya sanadkii 2004 .
      Xukuumadaasi waxa ay degtay Baydhabo oo ay ciidamo ku urursatay ay ka mid yihiin ciidankii maamul goboleedka Puntland oo uu Cabdilaahi Yusuf madaxwayne hore uga ahaan jirey iyo ciidamo Ethiopian ah oo badan, waxa Raisal wasaare ka ahaa Cali Maxamed Geedi, halka uu wasiirka arimaha guduhuna ahaa Xuseen Maxamed Faarax Caydiid.

      Waxa is khilaafay Cabdilaahi Yuusuf iyo Cali Maxamed Geedi oo Raisal wasaare ahaa waxaana noqday oo uu Raisal wasaare ka dhigtay madaxwayne Cabdilaahi yuusuf, Nuur Xasan Xuseen ( Nuur Cade ) oo ay markii dambe is qabteen iyo Cabdilaahi Yuusuf oo loo arkay nin wada aargoosi siyaasadeed oo Ethiopia iska hor yimaadeen, markiiba caalamku cadaadis ku saareen in uu talada wareejiyo.
      Waxaa xigtay in la dhisay dawlad ay ku mideysan yihiin maxaakiimtii islaamiga ahaa oo uu la heshiiyeen maraykanka iyo dawladihii danaynayey arimaha Somalia xiligaasi waxaana lala hadashiiyey intii ka soo hadhay dawladii Cabdilaahi Yusuf oo uu Nuur Cade hogaaminayo waxa la dhisay dawlad ku meelgaadh ah oo wadata baarlamaan ka kooban laba baarlamaan oo la isku daray oo uu hogaaminayo Sheekh Shariif waxaana lagu dhisay dalka Djibouti caasimadiisa Djibouti 2009.
      Xukuumada uu madaxwayne Shariif hogaaminayey (2009 ilaa 2012 ) waxa ay fursad u heshay in ay haykalkii dawladnimo dhisto, diyaariso nidaam dalka Somalia kumeelgaadhka lagaga saarayo, waxaa hawlahaa gadhwadeen ka ahaa Raisal wasaare Maxamed Cabdilaahi Farmaajo oo ku helay sumcad badan iyo Xukuumadiisii la odhan jirey ( TAYO ) .
      Murug iyo isqabsi dhacay ka dib waxa heshiis Kampala lagu gaadhay in Farmaajo iyo xukuumadiisa la rido oo xiligaasi faro baas ku haysay kooxaha argagixisada iyada oo dan loo arkay markaasi cid wadatayba, waxaana heshiiskaa Kampala Accord aqbalay Maxamed Cabdilaahi Farmaajo oo sidaa kaga tagey xilkii, xukuumadiisiina dhacday.
      Waxa kale oo Maamulka Sheekh Shariif iyo sadexdii Raisal wasaare ee kala dambeeyey diyaariyeen hab federal ah in dawladnimada Somalia loo badelo oo maamul goboleedyo la dhiso waxaana la iskula qaatay shirarkii Garoowe 1 iyo Garoowe 2 oo mudo kooban ka horeeyey shirkii London ee dib u dhiska Somalia 2012 oo 52 dawladood oo aduunka ahi ka soo qayb galeen.

      Xiligaasi xukuumada madaxwayne Xasan Sheekh Maxamuud waxa abuurnayd qadiyad Ethiopia diid ah oo loo arkayey in talada Somalia ay Addis-Ababa faraha kula jirto waxaana si gaar ah saameyn u lahaa General Gabre oo qaabilsanaa arimaha Somalia oo Muqdisho fadhiyey, sidoo kale ciidamada Ethiopia iyo Amisom na taladooda wax weyn ku lahaa.
      Madaxweynihii xigey waxa uu noqday Maxamed Cabdilaahi Farmaajo ( 2017 ilaa hadda 2021 ) fadhiya oo ku ololeeyey in aanay aheyn wax la aqbali karo in Ethiopia Somalia dhexdeeda ka taliso waxaana uu ku helay taageero iyo cudud weyn oo dadku siiyeen xiligaasi maadaama aad loo dareemayey culeyska Ethiopia.
      Ayaan darada dhacday Madaxwayne Farmaajo oo jooga ayaa muwaadiniin soomaaliyeed inta uu qab-qabtay Ethiopia u dhiibay oo uu ka mid ahaa Qalbi dhagax, ka dib markii xukuumadii Tplf meesha ka baxdayna waxa uu noqday garabka koowaad ee Abiy Ahmed iyo dawlada Ethiopia oo ay wada galeen heshiisyo sadex geesood ah dalalka Somalia, Ethiopia iyo Erateria.
