It's been a year. A year of progress. A year of stability. A year of making the right moves on the international diplomatic front. The government of Somaliland has made progress no doubt in terms of forwarding the case for independence. They have made the right noises at the right times to the right people. This has been done through well coordinated meetings and a PR machine that is punching above its weight. I say well done.
In contrast, the internal functions of government are yet to be reviewed and improved.

HARGEISA, — Follow an unmarked dirt road to a dry riverbed in the scrubby, northwestern Somali plains and in the shadows, beneath the sandstone outcroppings, are remarkably well-preserved paintings. They date back between five and 11,000 years and cover the rock walls in streaks of white and black and barbeque sauce red. White stripes highlight a warrior's clothing, the point of his spear and the curve of an ancient cow’s udder. This is Somaliland's Laas Geel. Anywhere else in the world such cave paintings would undoubtedly be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but here — in the unstable Horn of Africa — it’s in danger of being swallowed up by decades of war, political unrest, drought, poverty and neglect in a region that most of the Western world has left for dead.

Dear Somaliland people,. Our main political parties have been hide outs for questionable characters, propelling quacks to leadership in this country, the type of mediocre leadership that can only make us a far cry our what a country’s leadership ought to be. Political parties are established under the laws of Somaliland, whose objectives or themes are subscribed by Somaliland by paying membership fees and purchase of a ticket for nominations towards one main objective - taking over the government by democratic means (being a mandate by the citizenry via elections). I know its is provided for that a party can make by laws ( rules and regulations) for eternal governance - this is where the problem begins as attention is not made to the details;
1. During nominations, excitement of a catch (popular personality and his money plays ball) that rules and regulations play second fiddle.

On the other hand, Somaliland which obtained its independence, in June 26, 1960, before Somalia´s and voluntarily and hastily joined Somalia in the same year is not only repeatedly denied its independence, but it is also cruelly punished for seeking sovereignty and demanded to recommit itself into another emotional gunshot marriage with Somalia. For the past two decades, Somaliland remained politically and economically isolated.
