It has come to the Ministry of Ports and Marine Transport’s attention an alleged investment agreement between DP World, the state of Somaliland and the Federal Republic of Ethiopia regarding the port of Berbera, in which DP world would hold 51% stake where Ethiopia would acquire 19%.

The Ministry, as a representative of the Federal Government of Somalia on issues regarding ports and

marine transport clarifies that;

Office of the Minister

1. The Federal Government of Somalia is not party to this so-called investment agreement

2. This so-called agreement is both defective and detrimental to the sovereignty of the Federal Republic of Somalia and the unity of the country

3. The terms of this deal contravene procedure and are in blatant breach of the Provisional Constitution Somalia.

The Ministry therefore, considering the above factors declares this deal as non-existent, null and void.

The Federal Government of Somalia welcomes investment and development of trade and infrastructure, but always with strict adherence to the rule of law and procedures set by the government’s institutions, and with oversight from the federal parliament

Not worth even the piece of paper its written on. 

Anyway, coming back to the 3 points listed.

 

Point 1. that Villa Somalia is no party to the agreement. Trashes some fake news that say Khaire was involved. (Was laughable to say the least).

Point 2: Reiterates Somaliland's position very well. 

Point 3: Somaliland has never been a part to any kind of constitution post 1960. You can throw the constitution in the garbage bin.

Wait... could this become the longest lasting joke ever? The "non-existent" "null & void" that keep attracting investment for the next 30 years.

Somalia: governo di Mogadiscio, accordo con emiratina Dp World su porto di Berbera “illegale”
Mogadiscio, 02 mar 10:39 - (Agenzia Nova) - Il governo federale della Somalia ha definito “illegale” l’accordo che prevede l’acquisizione del 19 per cento del porto di Berbera, in Somaliland, da parte del governo etiope. È quanto si legge in un comunicato del governo ripreso dall’agenzia di stampa “Sonna”, secondo cui si tratta di un’intesa “incompatibile con la Costituzione e gli standard internazionali”. L’accordo è stato firmato ieri a Dubai fra il governo etiope, l’emiratina Dubai Ports (Dp World) e l'autorità portuale del Somaliland. In base all’accordo, Dp World manterrà una partecipazione del 51 per cento nel progetto, le autorità del Somaliland acquisiranno una quota del 30 per cento e il restante 19 per cento sarà gestito dall'Etiopia. L’accordo prevede anche che il governo di Addis Abeba investirà in progetti infrastrutturali per sviluppare il Corridoio di Berbera come porta commerciale della regione. Dp World ha di recente confermato la prosecuzione dei suoi piani ambiziosi in Africa. La società sta lavorando alla conversione del porto di Berbera e lavora al porto di Bosaso nel Puntland. Nei giorni scorsi i media somali hanno annunciato lo stop temporaneo ai lavori di costruzione della base militare emiratina nella città di Barbera, nel Somaliland.

Cida riyoonaysa waa iska caday. Qofna reality ayu ku noolyahay. Qofna riyo beenaad ayu ku noolyahay. 

Hadal waa raqiis, habar walba typewriter waa haysataa... let me know when the phantom government does anything worthy of a threat. Just writing "null & void" won't change anything from the facts on the ground.

On a serieous note. SFG should just file a document with UN, Arab Leaugue, AU send copy to UAE, Ethiopia and Somaliland stating that so long as Somaliland is part of Somalia all international agreements not ratified by Paeliament are invalid.

 

But then again all agreements done with Turkey, UAE, America...from Mogadishu are also invalid since not even raised in Parliament.

People living in glass houses should not be first to throw stones.

I bet you Somalia has agreed with UAE and arranged same propaganda and public consumption as Egypt does. Example Egypt cannot send a brigade into Sinai without Israel's permission. Cannot fly fighter jet in Sinai. This is never told to people. SFG should just file legal papaers for future generation or governments if one can stand on its two feet to negotiate in future.

The deeply layered and the multi-threads "warmed fiction" some desperate unionists folks, like our colleague, Mr Maakhir, tells themselves is staggering to behold. And it's indeed the stuff in which actually the yearly "Booker prize of fiction" was invented for it.

And by that I mean he actually thinks that a public relation letter released by a toothless government in Mogadishu, that also is beholden to the very country that is party to this deal, namely Ethiopia which in turn gets to be "dictate" to them on a daily basis, can actually stops this kind of "trilateral investment deal".

And what is more surprising is the sight of seeing these unionists folks actually holding the "view" that says some alleged government in Mogadishu can stops this deal, despite the fact that it was the same government of Mogadishu in which Ethiopian's government (a partner in this deal) have actually ordered them to "hand-over" a mere Somali citizen by the name of Qalbi-Dhagax, because Ethiopia had a problem with him.

Much less said about that government in Mogadishu having the means to stop this kind of multi-millions financial investment in which the same Ethiopian's government that "orders" them about is party to it.

Moreover, this letter is actually (if we remind ourselves) from a government in Mogadishu that is living off from the financial hands-out of the same government that is party to this deal (at least behind the scene sense of it). And that is, namely, the parent political state of the DP World, which is the UAE.

And to boot, it's the same freaking government their Prime-Minister, Mr Kheyre, is there with them to this day, literally begging them to give him and his government some more financial hand-out, just so that they can "survive" in Mogadishu at least till the end of the year.

And to see all these "plain facts" before you and still see some of our unionists folks still clutching this sort of a "dead-letter" as a token of a missive from alleged government in Mogadishu, as if that "pseudo-government" can "nullify" anything under the sun is really a sight to see.

And it speaks only the sheer defeated sense of the unionists folks have in here, whereby their subsequent desperation in which they seems to have gotten from that political defeat seems to have convinced them to clutch a fiction of this kind.

And finally, these unionists folks actually believe (and I mean deeply believe) that this kind of a deal can be stopped with a dead letter from a toothless government holed up (for dear life itself) in Villa Somalia. When in fact some of the most influential members of the Powers-that-be in the world, which in turn actually keep that government in Mogadishu "safe" in Villa Somalia (through their political support and financial contribution) are actually standing behind it.

And they standing behind this "deal" since it's to their "strategical interests" for the port of Berberra not to fall into the Chinese's agenda of the Red-Sea. Or to the Turkish's ever expanding strategical footprints in this area of the Globe.

Consequently, to see our politically defeated unionists folks, clutching this desperate last straw of a fictional kind, actually makes one wince for them. Since one knows in one's heart that this "dead-letter" from the toothless federal government of Somalia will have as much of usefulness (or impact) for them as that of used toilet paper.

This whole thing is so humiliating for all Somalis. I am sure Somalilanders are not that happy the way it got concluded, But the fault clearly lies in Mogadishu.

If the PM was intending to get few million dollars from UAE using the occasion, it won't work.

      Jubaland; Although being a relatively new state in terms of Somalia's independence seems as if its in search of pure and utter autonomy.
      But the question is why? Can Somalia ever surrender its southern coast and second largest port to Kenya?
      Though let's be honest, in terms of independence, Jubaland's urge and determination in search of self-governance and pure sovereignty can only mean WAR and DISASTER up North. This would mean Somaliland would need to fight even harder for recognition. Not only will the air up north be rigged in deep pessimism, but Jubaland's stance for independence will ruin the dream, that of course....never was-
