A World Heritage!

After more than 20 years, who do we blame for the lack of diplomatic recognition and how do we go around this neverending “somali-wayn” quagmire to attain our goal? To be blunt and humble at the sametime, I think we can only blame ourselves, to certain degree, and of course our past and current governments! Well, some will argue that Kossovo, South-Sudan, South-Ossetia, Abkhazia…all had powerful political friends such as (respectively), the West and Russia…Even thought, legally speaking, we, somalilanders have a stronger case because we existed as an independent nation already (which means our cause is not in conflict with that “sacred AU and UN territorial indivisibility act). But yet, we seem to be having hard time convincing the world to our, well justified, cause and win some friends. Yes, as she said, that famous singer, “Gadhba gadhbaa la tusaayeh, gacalkeen miyuu lumay…” Gacalkeen or our supposed friends are, unfortunately the anti-democratic-arab-muslim brothers who sadly ganged up on our beloved democratic Somaliland…Why?…

It’s not fair, I think, that flights to the toughest places leave at the toughest time of day – the night.Yet again, to go off to Somaliland I had to get up before 4 a.m. to get to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by 5.15. Even at that time, there were plenty of cars on the roads. It was a Sunday morning, so they were not going early to work – more likely they were going home late from the bars and nightclubs of the city. Which was evident in the way a few of them were slowly zig-zagging along pothole-free roads. It was another slow flight over the arid lands in the inappropriately named Dash.
On arrival at the refurbished Egal International Airport at Hargeisa, I took a bottle of mineral water from my rucksack while waiting for my colleagues to clear the visa queue. I peeled off the plastic seal and looked round for a waste bin. A young Somali official noticed. “No problem,” he said.”You can throw it on the ground – this is Africa.”

The self named SSC group which are suffering identity crises, sought cheap shot diplomacy in the TFG of Sheikh Sharif. They have assured to extend their animosity towards Somaliland in every trench. If we have to consider their claim to represent SSC, first and foremost, the folks are confused and myopic about their goals and are by now rather reckless and lost in the famous Somali politics of back stabbing. They are dwelling in Mogadishu begging their earned Independence in 1960 with the Somaliland block, that is if they were to be genuine. It is laughable to see them back to square one, doing what Somaliland stood firm in dealing with Southern Somalia. They claim to dismiss the accord of Somaliland communities in Burao Declaration in 1991. They despise the call from Hargeisa to end animosity among the communities but rather chose to pursue what Somaliland turned down to accept from Mogadishu.

It’s a common story here. After 20 years of war and violence, Somalia has one of the world’s highest rates of mental-health disorders. An estimated one-third of its eight million people are affected by some kind of mental illness, yet there are only three trained psychiatrists in the entire country to care for them, according to the World Health Organization.
When I came to Saudi Arabia in 1993, I set aside many priorities including my religion in order for me to achieve all the comforts of this material life. I stayed in the Kingdom for five years and during these years, I was too prejudiced and biased with the Muslims and I tried to distance myself away from them as much as I could.

When in 1887 Susanna Madora better known as "Dora" was elected as the new mayor of Argonia, Kansas in United States, Somaliland was in the hands of its colonial master –Britain- which at the time was ruling most parts of the world. Dora was a politician and activist and became the first woman elected as mayor and the first woman elected to any political office in the United States (United Nations 1960). Khadra X. Ismail Yonis widely known as Khadra X. Gaydh has just become Somaliland’s first female mayor but already she seems relaxed in her pioneering role as she strolls around her community clad in traditional beautiful Somali dirac (a flowing lightweight dress) and a purple shalmad.
She will be a good leader, just like her father who was a successful businessman," says Hussein Warsame, an elderly man wearing the traditional white galabiyah robe, who made a point of climbing off his donkey to greet the new mayor. "And besides, a woman is in power in Germany," he adds with a smile.
It is been three years, since I wrote an article to the somaliland media, and the reason that it took me so long to write an article is because when somaliland face a political dilemma before this new administration, including closing of house of parliament, Calling for impeachment of the president at that time and also unsure that the election is gone happen at that moment and also giving time to this new administration to make an evaluation if they are better than the former administration led by dahir rayale and this is the reason that I have kept silent.
Today i believe it’s the time to break my silence and ask ourselves where are we, where somaliland stands now in terms of peace and stability. Economically. Strategy on recognition. and Somaliland sovereignty

SUBJECT: DJIBOUTI: ASSISTANCE CONFUSION
REF: DJIBOUTI 1633
Classified By: ADCM Haywood Rankin for reason 1.5 (b,d).
1. (C) Summary: Chief of Armed Forces Fathi conveyed to Charge September 3 President Guelleh's confusion and vexation -- directed mainly at Djibouti's ambassador in Washington -- about assistance from the United States. He said, perhaps too frankly, that Guelleh was nervous because he needed to begin his election campaign for 2005. Guelleh is supposed to return September 5 to Djibouti, after more than a month away, and Charge has requested an appointment. The fundamental problem is that the Djiboutians are accustomed to the simpler French way of handling assistance and have a steep learning curve with the Americans (and vice versa). End Summary.

On the 7th of September, we pumped water out of the well for the first time, and on the 9th of September we could pump water with a good pressure from the well with borrowed equipment in order to assess the water pressure and potability.
