Is not like you have done your part. Question should be why is there no trust in our society?

 

Shiek sharif and his crew were good example why many people aren't donating , we ask foreigners for help

and hide it when it reaches our hands.

 

I guess when turkey builds the parliaments we will ask them to feed us as well ?

 

We should learn to do our own and be self sufficient rather than asking others to do our minor work.

 

God bless turkey for thier help but at the end of the day nothing is free walee

 

We should stop begging and start learning to work with what we have .

Who would say no to a friend giving you a hand (no pun intended)? Let them build everything I say and in exchange, they can have all the fish they can handle from our bountiful seas. Either way, Somalia is winning.

What the brother is saying is Ask Not what Turkey can do for your country, Ask what Somalia does to itself. A valid argument some are seemingly avoiding.

 

Anyho, I hope Somalia will wise up and grab the opportunity Turkey is presenting to us.

I think people are being harsh here. Walaalkis, has made a good point, I believe fruits from your own labour are more dignifying than receiving a handout from a generous friend.

He might have raised a valid point but what I am concerned about is his lack of trust to any Somali at all. That is very worrying.

thanks for the clarification, that's my point . We ask and ask and ask and ask... where does this stop ?

 

Turkey is great country and a Muslim country, we couldn't ask for more help from our brothers in Turkey.

Lets look at the big picture, as much China did for Africa they also took something home. They help you and the same time

they take your natural resources.

 

What Somalis need to understand is nothing is free. People should stand up for their country and help those in need.

At the end of the day, will feel great and have our dignity.

 

Parliament is a building only, nothing special about it.

 

If all the SOL members Donate 1k each, that's enough for for reconstruction of Somalia parliament.

^^ valid points indeed. I am willing to pay 1k to help support a government institution. Somali's should stop the parties and send money to the country. One year no more lavish welcome parties or celebrating Puntland, somaliand or first of July days and send all cash for those events to help educate the orphans of those communities or drill a water well and so on...

Walaalkis, good point, but I think you're underestimating the deep black hole the capital was plunged into, it felt bottomless, until we put a floor underneath through stability, and slowly this has allowed us to rise again, but make no mistake it won't be until 2014 that the government has incorporated all the necessary talent into its administration to establish independent institutional buildings on the scale of the old parliament.

 

There is not a single reputable Somali company that has the same skills as the prewar team and their excellent interior design that is still unmatched anywhere else in the peninsula. Turkey has a beautiful parliament, and it would be amazing if they made a similar one for us but in the colours of the Somali flag, blue and white.

um..sad...resorting to silly memes...and...some mutated form of ebonics...in an attempt I believe...to be saracastic...rude....?!....fail!

 

.....the degree of recent involvement by the Turks in Somalia warrants critical discussion beyond the naive believe that its all for the good of the "ummah" .... as if.

Its no different from the Chinese/Soviet infrastructural involvement in the past that build many of Somalia's economic assets still benefiting us today; road-network, ports, etc. Turkey is a rising economy, and they're doing for us what other major powers are doing for most of Africa.

 

This diaspora pride, xenophobia and criticism against a country doing something on the ground is silly considering the extreme lowbase the country has descended into, and it needs all the hands it can get without falling into unpayable debt.

 

If we listen to you, and chase off the Turks on some silly fear, the road to recovery would be even more difficult than it already is.
