Who has best policy and practice for Refugees?

Recommended Posts


The only country in the world that comes close second to Ethiopia is Mexico.

Lets see what the refugee generating countries say:

Eritrea: The Ethiopians are taking advantage and making business, gaining influence through refugees and relatives, changing their image from agressor to peaceful etc

South Sudan: Ethiopia is making business and gaining influence among people of South Sudan

Somalia: Ethiopia is gaining influence and changing its image among Somalis and making business


No body mentions that its culture among Ethiopians to be humaine to someone on hard times, and if that gains you influence, money and peace and friendship so much the better.

Ethiopia and Sudan are only countries that allow displaced Somalis from the republic to have direct contact and working relationship with UN agencies with nobody in the middle.

Its not polically good for you to admit such policies are humanine and dignified. This has been policy of Ethiopian goverment for more than 10 years now.

Name any country that even comes close.

East African ministers work to end Somalia's refugee crisis

Friday March 23, 2018

Security ministers drawn from Eastern Africa region on Thursday renewed support for far-reaching interventions aimed at ending the refugee crisis in Somalia.

The Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) ministers who met in Nairobi to review progress in the implementation of a regional pact on finding durable solution to the refugee crisis in Somalia vowed to mobilize resources and political capital to realize that goal.


Kenya's Cabinet Secretary for Internal Security Fred Matiangi stressed that robust financing, partnerships and political goodwill is key to sustaining progress achieved in reducing the suffering of an estimated 900,000 Somalia refugees scattered in the region.

"I'm confident that with concerted relentless efforts, we will eventually meet all our pledges and ultimately deliver our promise for durable solution to Somali refugees," said Matiangi in a speech read on his behalf by the Chief Administrative Secretary in the Interior Ministry Patrick Ole Ntutu.

The security ministers were joined by representatives of UN and multilateral lending agencies to review progress in the implementation of Nairobi Declaration and Action Plan adopted by Heads of State from the region in March last year to find long-term solution to refugee crisis in Somalia

Matiangi hailed progress that has been achieved since the adoption of the regional pact to end the refugee challenge in Somalia that has worsened against a backdrop of clan based skirmishes, terrorism and climatic shocks.

"It is gratifying to note that remarkable progress has been registered over the past one year towards realization of the objectives of the Nairobi Declaration and comprehensive plan of Action," Matiangi said.

"We commend the Federal Government of Somalia for measures taken to create conditions for safe, sustainable and voluntary return of refugees," he added.

Matiangi noted that restoration of civil authority, economic recovery reconciliation and response to natural disasters has improved the plight of Somalia refugees.

He reiterated Kenya's commitment to transforming the lives of an estimated 450,000 Somalia refugees living in the country through provision of basic education, health, vocational skills and employment.

Pan African blocs have rallied behind home-grown solution to Somalia refugee crisis that has undermined stability and development in a significant portion of the continent.

Mahboub Maalim, the Executive Secretary of Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), noted that a holistic approach that combines humanitarian aid, provision of social services and security has enhanced the capacity of Somalia refugees to rebuild their lives.

      It is official. The era of despot Cabdi Illey is over in the Somali region. 
      After closed door deliberations, the DDSI party had elected Mr. Ahmed Shide as the new leader which officially ends the 11 year painful rule of Illey. 
      This selection will pave Mr. Shide as the new president of the region very soon. Also, the Liyu police has been disbanded as the security force of the Somali region. For the last few days the Liyu have been looting and pillaging communities while abandoning their positions. 
      Also, members of Illey family are been investigated by the authorities for the theft of millions of dollars. 
      It is an end of a painful chapters for a lot of Somalia. A very small group of blood thirsty group,  created and organised by the Tplf and Cabdi Illey have been overthrow thanks to the Oromo uprising. While many Somali including my self were looking to preserve the old order for the sake order and continuity, millions of Somalia want the total demise and the removal of the tyrants who oppressed them for so long. Just like the Oromo celebrated the demise of the Tplf order, for the millions of Somalis the end of Illey and his henchmen is a great relief and a new era of freedom. 
      There were some security concern about the disbanding of the Liyu police and the threat of anarchy and outlaws in the countryside, yet for most people, their disbanding was a relief. Analysts believe that the Liyu is too criminal or murderous to be a force that might fight for independence or even tribal reasons. They were trained to kill and abuse Somali and will not be needed in a land where people are seeking justice and freedom. 
      It is mind boggling how a small ruthless group had managed to oppress and control millions of Somalia for so long. They acted like there is no one else but themselves.
      Now, Illey and his supporters must accept the new order and collaborae for the peace and development of all Somali. He and Tplf wanted to finish off the Somali and createa long  civil war between the Somali and Oromo. There were a lot of victims, but we hope the worst to be over. He gambled to the lives of thousands of Somali to save the Tplf order. After he lost the gamble, he continued to the destructive route until it is too late.

      Why didn't you bring the most important news for you, the oil well to be drilled announced by Abiy?
      Why this go around to bring civil war among Somalis? What do you gain?
      Why is the area where the pipeline to pass more useful to you than the area where the prospective well is?
      Why cover with Iley why not say the main motivation for you the trade route?
