But he needs some more talk, than what he is doing. This is the age of facebook and is very challenging even if one is doing a great work, if he is not in your face on TV, Radio, public townhall meetings etc.

Even if one buys into the greatness of the late dictator, and have an academy named after his memory, what a contradiction to the memory of a man who led somalia free from foreigners to have occupiers play a part in his remembrance.  Poetic justice.

By way of example you have king menelik of Ethiopia who is despised as chicken scared of Europeans to sell all the sea shore, cruel to people as in monument in Oromo state of breasts and hands of people he cut, yet in one province of the Amhara region Menelik is a hero.

History is full of that. Its like one man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter. The balance is those who like him should respect the grievance of those who received short end of his stick and those who suffered should understand that he is someon's hero.

If you are living separately is very easy, but if still want to live together is difficult.

This is the only place Siyaad Barre allowed to be named, legend says. Siyaad Barre can be faulted a lot, but he surely wasn't narcissistic kaligii taliye. Otherwise we would have had his face on Soomaali currencies; his name on airports; his statues on every major Soomaali town; his name on stadiums and schools; money poured into dictator's original town and millions stolen in Swiss accounts.

Yet Moi of Kenya - many don't think a dictator when his name is mentioned - did all the above and more, forget about the crazy ones.

i think the old name is not that important, it is the institution and its function that matters niyoow. if this college will help the Army defeat alshabab, let farmaajo rebuild it and make it great again.

Mr Moi of Kenya left behind an intact State that is still functioning to this day, despite all dictatorial tendencies he was famous for when he was in power in Kenya. Whilst on the other hand, late Gen. Afweyne, left behind a carcasses of a destroyed State, whereby every effort to put it back together the humpty-dumpty is proving to be well-nigh impossible. That is the historical difference between the two men. 

The other day, you were preferring a destroyed Somali state, a best of option for Somaliland as you and some others put it. Ironically the people in Mogadishu who drove him out from Villa Somalia do not mind this academy to be called after him. in general, people recognize him what good and bad he did. We learn what happened in the past but we live in the present. You stuck in the past and seems to have difficulty moving forward.
