President Sillanyo Should Fire His National Security Team

Recently, a group of armed ONLF insurgent group landed Somaliland western sea coast almost succeeded crossing into Ethiopia’s Eastern border without a trace. It is clear that Somaliland’s military commander in that region and local people provided intelligence and logistical support for this operation. The events that took place west coast region underscores why national security would always be the top priority for the new administration, and the bad neighborhood we live. For the past decade, former Somaliland administration kept blind eye and tacitly approved the illegal activity in the west coast region—–arms smuggling, contra-band and illegal importing of Somaliland‘s exotic animals . By any means, we are not suggesting that former President Rayaale was responsible the failure of the new government to detect and defend the latest incursion of armed militia’s into Somaliland territory.

The events of last week and the way President Sillanyo’s security team handled its aftermath was very embarrassing indeed. However, we are expecting our leaders to learn from what went wrong and do whatever necessary to secure our coastal area.

Right now, it is not the time for finger pointing and bad-mouthing about the new administration’s shaky start. Constructive and objective criticism are helpful, but we would never accept those who want to take advantage and capitalize this incident for their  own political  or personal gains,  by spreading lies ,false rumors ,trash and  baseless stories..

Some editors of local websites have been waging lately, a full blown misinformation campaign to discredit the new Sillanyo administration, which could tarnish Somaliland image. For example, this week, waaheen posted breaking news with this following Headline, “A group of heavily armed Ethiopian troops have reached Sayla.” And it continues with the story that the Ethiopian Government is asking its parliament to approve the deployment of Ethiopian troops into the West Coast of Somaliland. We would not be surprise, if the source of this type of news came from a fringe website like Hadhwanaag-.

Just because they (the editors) did not get the job  from they were expecting from the new Administration; is not an excuse to post and publish whatever disparaging stories about Somaliland in order to undermine our new leader. This is really foolish and unpatriotic. What they doing are not true journalism; but a desperate way to manifest their anger toward the victory of Kulmiye party.

At the time of crisis, we need unity and we should rally behind our leader; that does not mean giving him a blank check to do whatever he wishes. We must demand real answers from our government: what really happened, why heavily armed men landed on our coast, and what agency failed to do its job on September 10, blunders. And the fact finding committee President have appointed  to investigate the latest fiasco in the west coast is merely for public relation and damage control.

We know hard work, time and patience are needed in order to secure our long coastline. We strongly believe, with right leadership, strategy, commitment and determination, we can secure our Coast from East to West. Removing Somaliland coastal Guard under the jurisdiction of Ministry of interior is the logical way to start. Instead the Ministry of defense should take over the command and control of the coastal forces, since they are dealing with external forces. For wrong reason, former administration placed the Coast Guard under the supervision of the Ministry of Interior.

And establishing the Headquarters of Somaliland Coast Guard in Lughaye would bring into the region the resources and the troops needed to secure the West coast Area —- from Bulihar to Seyla, an area of 365 km long. We should also ask assistance from donor nations to bolster our small coast Guard with the right training and equipment.

Majority of the people have serious reservations and concern about the people President Sillanyo chose to surround himself. Including the Al-Shabaab infected, President’s chief cabinet—who lacks the experience and the credentials to run that post. We need individuals with law enforcement, intelligence and counter insurgent background to lead the Interior and Defense Ministries. Mr. Gabose and Mr. Adami are fine capable public officials; however, we believe President have picked both of them for political reasons. We should not politicize when it comes protecting our freedom and security. Sacking both security Ministers makes sense, and bringing new security team would prove to the Somaliland people that President is making tough decision  for the sake  our national security .

The new administration would be tested by our enemies again and would encounter problems as well. At least, our job should be how to offer a feedback to rectify those challenges. Let’s stop the culture of self destruction and we should not give comfort those want Somaliland to fail. We want the new Sillanyo/Seylici administration to succeed; failure is not an option.

Finally, Somaliland entity will succeed because its political institution are organic, having built by the local indigenous people of the country rather than imposed from the outside by the donor nations or the UN.

Allah Bless Somaliland
Long live Somaliland

Wasiirka Maaliyadda oo Caddeeyey in Masuuliyiinta Xukuumadii Rayaale Looga Fadhiyo Halka ay Mariyeen Lacagtii Dadweynaha

Wasiirka Maaliyadda oo Caddeeyey in Masuuliyiinta Xukuumadii Rayaale Looga Fadhiyo Halka ay Mariyeen Lacagtii Dadweynaha

“Waxaananu damacsanahay inaanu kor u qaadno cashuuraha barriga”

“Waxaannu qabnaa markii Ramadaan aanu shaqaalihii siinay laba mushahar iyo saddex mushahar inay duco badani nagu dhacday”

Wasiirka maaliyadda Somaliland

Hargeysa (Jam)-Wasiirka maaliyadda Somaliland Eng. Maxamed Xaashi Cilmi, ayaa daboolka ka qaaday in hanti-dhawrka guud ee qaranku uu baadhitaano ku hayo masuuliyiintii hay’adaha dawladda xukuumadii hore ee madaxweyne Rayaale si wax looga weydiiyo halka ay mariyeen lacago badan oo dalka ka maqan.

Wasiirka maaliyadda oo shalay ka hadlay xidhitaanka tababar lagaga hadlayey arrimo ku saabsan miisaaniyadda qaranka oo muddo laba maalmood ah hoolka hay’adda shaqaalaha uga socday Agaasimayaasha dawladda iyo masuuliyiin ka tirsan xukuumadda, waxa uu sheegay in masuuliyiinta xukuumadii hore ee Rayaale looga fadhiyo inay ka jawaabaan halka ay mariyeen lacagtii dadweynuhu u dhiibtay.

“Xukuumadda cusubi waxay dhaxashay qasnad madhan, waxaad ogtihiin miisaaniyadda tiiyoo sarbalaska(dheeraadka miisaaniyadda) sannadka 2010 yahay 122 bilyan oo doollar marka lagaga soo qabto ilaa sannadkii 2002, hadana shaqaalihii iyo ciidamadii, raashinkoodii iyo shidaalkii waxa la yidhi lacag looma hayo, waxaan ogahay oo imika lagu jiraan baadhitaan la leeyahay xageed mariseen lacagtii aynu dhiganay iyo tii dadweynuhu dhigtay, halkay mariyeena iyagaa ka jawaabi oo taa dhex geli maayo oo hanti-dhawrka ayaa ku jira hadda,” ayuu yidhi Eng. Maxamed Xaashi Cilmi.

Wasiirka maaliyadu waxa uu sheegay in miisaaniyad-sanadeedka 2011 ay ka duwanaan doonto miisaaniyadihii ay diyaarin jirtay xukuumadii madaxweyne Rayaale, isaga oo xusay in miisaaniyadda lagu dari doono lacago loogu tallogalay dhinacyada horumarinta, isla markaana hay’adaha dawladda loogu kala badin doono hadba sida faa’iidadda ay dalka u leeyihiin u kala muhiimsan tahay.

“Miisaniyadda 2011 waa inay ka duwanaataa misaaniyadihii hore, sababa dhawr ah awgood.

Waxaad owgtihiih oo jirtay in miisaaniyadihii hore aanay ku jirin wax horumar ah gabigoodaba, fasal iskuul oo dhisan ha noqotee, waxa kale oo aad ogtihiin miisaaniyadihii hore sida loo qaybiyaa amma se aanay ahayn mid loo tixgeliyey sida baahida loo kala qabo, waxaa tusaale wanaagsan idiinku filan in Wasaaradda Waxbarashadu noqoto ta ugu miisaaniyada badan, waayo way igu kharash badan tahay, waxa kale oo aad la socotaan in miisaaniyadaha kuwa ugu badani ay gali jireen madaxtooyada iyo maaliyada oo baahida loo qabaa iyaga markaad eegto kharash ahaan ay aad uga yar yihiin tacliinta iyo ta caafimaadka.

Waxaannu damacsanahay wasaarad ahaan in miisaaniyaddii sidii loo samayn jiray wax laga bedelo, waxaannu doonaynaa inay noqoto miisaaniyad horumar leh, lacagteedana waynu heli karnaa.

Miisaaniyaddii hore hanti-dhawrku ma geli jirin, sidii la doonana waa loo isticmaali jiray, waxaannu anagu filaynaa in kolka sannadkani dhammaado intaanu dhammaan hantidhawrku galo oo wax walba sidii loo isticmaalay raaco, isla markaana uu golaha ka akhriyo. Waxa kale oo aanu doonaynaa in miisaaniyadan dad aqoon leh, Guddiga Dhaqaalaha ee Golaha Wakiilladu iyo jaamacadaha dalka wixii ka iman kara ee aqoonteeda leh ay yimaadaan oo ay noqoto miisaaniyad loo dhan yahay oo hareeraha laga joogo oo aanay noqon mid afar gidaar dhex dooda lagu sameeyey.

Markaa miisaniyadani waa inay noqotaa mid ka duwan kuwii hore, waxa kale oo aad ogtihiin dakhli badan oo xukuumaddu ay leedahay aanu gali jirin miisaaniyadda, sida shiidaalka, xoolaha dhaafa, dekedda, xataa labada Dollar lacagta ka soo gashaa, wixii aan geli jirin oo dhan inay galaan baanu ku talo jirnaa, wixi aan gali jirin miisaaniyada la sameeyey bay ku dhawaanayaan, waxaas oo dhammi waa waxa aanu doonayno inay galaan horumarka dalka, waa inaynu dakhliga si wanaagsan u uruurino,” ayuu yidhi Eng. Maxamed Xaashi Cilmi.

Waxa kale oo wasiirku caddeeyey in wax soo saarka dalku aanu ahayn Xoolaha nool oo kaliya, balse ay isgaadhsiintu ka badan tahay inta xoolaha ka soo gaasha, haddii lagu xidhiidhiyo qalab lagu ogaado intay isticmaalan, isagoo ka hadlaayna waxa uu yidhi; “Waxa ugu badan dakhligeena soo gaalaa sidii iminka la sheegaayey maaha xoolaha nool oo kaliya, waayo isgaadhsiinta oo qudha haddii lagu xidho mishiin yar oo afar boqol iyo soddon kun oo Doolar ah ($430,000), waxa ina soo gali kara isgaadhsiintaa 100,000,000 (boqol milyan ) iyo wax ka badan markaa waxay ka badan kartaa, xoolahana way dhaafi kartaa, haddii xisaabtan keeda la galo.

Haddaba si taa loo gaadho waa in shaqaalaha la siiyo wax ku filan, manaaha nin gaajoonaaya in loo diri malaayiin, wax caqliga gala maaha. Markaa daryeelkii dalku waa inuu meesha soo galaa.

Afar kooxood baananu u dirnay inta qofka dhex dhexaadka ahi ku noolaan karo, waxay soo sheegeen in biilka qofka dhexdhexaadka ahi gaadhayo ilaa $250 ilaa $300 oo ku dhadhow lacagtii aanu ku bilownay mushaharka, intaa jeer ee sixirka doolarku isbeddelay marna looma tixgelin shaqaalihii iyo ciidamadii, dabadeetana waxa soo baxay in dulmi badani iyo qas badani ka yimi oo aynu aad ugu riiqanay, wax lagu tabcana waxa ugu wanaagsan wax-soo-saarka dalka.

Waxa loo samayn doonaa xafiis walba inta uu u baahan yahay, wixii shaqaalaha 65 ka weyn waxaannu odhan doonaa inta nidaamka hawl-gabka la samaynaayo intaadaa uun qaado, waxaanay ahayd taasi himilooyinka xisbiga KULMIYE, guddina waa loo saaray arrintaa ciidamada iyo shaqaalaha.”

Wasiirka maaliyadu waxa uu ka hadlay qorshayaasha ay damacsan yihiin ee ay doonayaan inay waxka qabtaan iyo taageerada ay dhinacyada kala duwan ee waxbarashada ka gaysan doonaan.

“Qorshe yaasha aanu damacsanahay waxaa ka kow ah waxbarashada, waxa ku xigga biyaha, waxaana saddex ah, caafimaadka. Markaad eegto siday u kala horreeyaan uunbaa looga hawlgali doonaa.

Waxaad ogtihiin Jaamacadaynu yeelanay, marka jaamacadaha dawladda laysku daro Camuud, Hargeysa, Burco iyo Lascaanood, miisaaniyada waxa ugu jira $92,000 (laba iyo sagaashan kun) sannadkiiba, laba iyo sagaashan kun markaad afar jaamacadood u qaybiso midkiiba waxay yeelanaysaa 1800 (kun iyo siddeed boqol), iyadoo sarifkuna isbedelaayo, lagumana kalsoonaan karo inay wax tar noqoto, halka uu Madaxweynihii hore mushahar u qaadanayey bishii $62,000 (laba iyo lixdan kun), Bulxana waxaan leeyahay xiisaanka yar adkaysta wax ma diidanine anagaa xukuumaddii hore idiinka roonaane waxba ha calaacalin. markaa waxay ahayd wax la yaab leh sida wax loo qaybinaayey, annagu waxaannu damacsanahay in taasi isbeddesho oo aanu tacliinta siino, waxa jira laba kun oo dhaw dhaw oo macallin oo qaata gunno ahaan u qaata lacagta ardayda laga qaado, balse aan dawladda wax mushahar ah ka qaadan, taasi waxay sababtay in fasalkiiba ay fadhiistaan 70 iyo wax ka badan, meelaha qaarkoodna ay ardaydu 100 kaba dhaafaan, taasna waxbaanu ka beddeli doonaa oo waxa fiican in fasalkiiba lagu soo celiyo celcelis ahaan 40 arday,” ayuu yidhi wasiirku, waxaanu intaa ku daray “Biyaha haddaad eegto maalintii waxaynu cabnaa 20 mitirkuyuubic, tala galkii hore waxa uu ahaa dadkoo ahaa 150 meelaahaa, maanta milyanbuu ku dhaw yahay, waxaanna loogu talo galay 4000 mitirkuyuubic baaqigana waxaa laga keenaa hareeraheena wax kutalogal ah oo loogu talogalay may jirin aan dawarsi ahayn.”

Waxa kale oo uu Wasiirkaa Maaliyaddu sheegay inay shaqaalihii siyeen mushaharooyinkii mudadii koobnayd ee dawladda Siilaanyo xilka haysay, isaga oo arrintaa ka hadlayana waxa uu yidhi; “Annagu waxaannu fadhinay laba bilood oo wax la’, waxaananu bixinay Aprill, May, June, July iyo August inteedii badnay oo lays gaadhsiiyey, waxaannu rajaynaynaa inaanu dhammaystirno bishan iyo bisha ku xigta wixii nalagaga tagay ee dhibaato ahaa.

Markaa miisaaniyadda soo socotaa way ka duwanaanaysaa insha Allah, waxaananu damacsanahay inaanu kor u qaadno cashuuraha barriga, taasi oo milaayiin ka badan inta dhoofka xoolaha inaga soo gasha, sida isgaadhsiinta.

Shaqaalahana waxaannu rajaynaynaa inaanu mushaharka u kordhino si talaabo talaabo ah si ay wax u soo saaraan. Markaa waxa naga cabban karaa waa xaraan quutayaashii aanu ka xidhnay Baankii u socday, markaa haddaad jaraa’idka ku aragtaan cid na xamanaysa waa nimankaa oo annagu nimankaas uunbaanu col nahay ee maaha dadweynaha sida runta ah.

Waxaannu qabnaa markii Ramadaan aanu shaqaalihii siinay laba mushahar iyo saddex mushahar inay duco badani nagu dhacday, iminkana inaanu uga kordhinbaanu damacsanahay.

Jaamacadahana 92,000 (laba iyo sagaashan kun) oo sannadkiiya siin mayne waanu uga kordhin doonaa oo waananu u saddex laabi doonaa, tacliintana waxaannu damacsanahay inaanu u saddex laabno.

Markaa waxaannu idinka rabnaa haddaad tihiin maamuladii hay’adaha kala duwan ee dawladda dhawr shay inaanu yarayno ayaanu jecel nahay, kow marti qaadka waanu yarayn, waayo waxaagaad deeqsi ku noqon kartaaye waxa ummadda deeqsi kuma noqon kartid, midna waanu yarayn oo shidaalkanu yarayn, waayo af-miishaarkii aroortii waddooyinka xidhi jiray ee ku soo socday wasaaraddaha si loogu shubin waxaannu leenahay ninka ku shuba shidaal gaadhi aan gaadhi dawladeed ahayn isaga dambiga leh, waxa kale oo aanu yarayn qalabada xafiisyada, waxaananu ka dhigi wax xafiisyadu ku shaqayn karaan.

Raashinka ciidamada meelaha laga qaadayo, sidoo kale shidaalada laga qaadayo waa inay ka jabnaadaan inta suuqa.

Waxaannu damacsanahay in wasaaradda maaliyaddu qandaraasyo ku bixiso Raashinka, qalabka xafiisyada, qalabka gaadiidka iyo shidaalka oo ay noqoto meel qolo waliba intii baahideedu ahayn ay ka qaadan doonto saddex biloodna loogu sii daayo, si aanay dadkii laga macmiilanaayey aanay waxoogii uga raagin. Markaa waxaan idiinka rajaynayaa miisaniyadda aad soo samaynaysaan inaad u eegtaan baahida loo qabo horumarka iyo kharashka.”

Sidoo kale wasiirka maaliyaddu mar uu ka hadlaayey arrimaha hay’adaha dalka ku sugan ee deeq-bixiyayaasha , waxa uu saluug weyn ka muujiyey mashaariicda ay soo qaataan iyo waxay bixiyaan, isagoo taa ka hadlaayana waxa uu yidhi; “Waxaad idiin sheegayaa maanta waxaynu qabsano uunbaa wax inoo ah, hay’dahan dibeda inooga yimaada, waxay dalbadaan intaas oo boqol oo milyan waxa loo ogoladaa boqolaal milyan, waxa ka muuqdaa waa wax aad u yar, warbixinaha aadka u wanaagsan ee ay qoraan maaha wax inaga laynoogu talogalay ee waa mid ay deeq-bixiyayaasha kaga qaadanayaan, waxaannu damacsanahay inaanu sannadkan la xisaabtano oo aanu nidhaahno wixii aad samaynaysaan halkan soo dhiga, dabadeedna sida loo kharash garaynaayo aanu idiin kala shaqayno, hay’adaha wax dhisi karaaya aanu soo magacowno, kuwa alaabta laga iibsanaayo aanu soo magacowno aanu halkaa kala socono wixi la dhisaayey iyo wixii la qabanaayey, waa inaanay noqotaa wax aynu inagu kaantaroolkeeda leenahay oo aan laynagu masabidin waxaan inaga inagu bixin, marka aad u eegto siminaarada yar ee tobanka doolar jeebka layskugu rido, waxa ku baxaa waa wax aad u yar, laakiin waa inayn daba galno oo iskuulada qaarkood meelaha cidlada ah laga dlhisaayo oo riyuhu ku xaroodaan, waxa halkaa ka muuqata in dalkeenu yahay dal aan laxe-jeclo laga lahayn. Markaa aynu ku xisaabtano dalka sidiii loo toosin lahaa,” ayuu hadalkiisa ku soo xidhay Eng. Maxamed Xaashi Cilmi.

Xildhibaan Dhugad Iyo Suldaan Xiiray Oo Baaq Culus U Jeediyey Madax-dhaqameed Reer Boorama

Hargeysa (Oodweynenews)- Xildhibaan C/laahi Ibraahim Xirsi (Dhugad) oo ka mid ah xildhibaanada Golaha Guurtida Somaliland iyo Suldaan Yuusuf Muxumed Xiiray, ayaa ugu baaqay Salaadiinta reer Boorama inay xukuumadda Madaxweyne Siilaanyo ay ula shaqeeyaan siddii ay ula shaqayn jireen xukuumaddii ka horaysay ee Madaxweyne Rayaale.

Xildhibaan Dhugad iyo Suldaan Yuusuf Maxamed Xiiray, waxa ay sidan ku sheegeen shirjraa’id oo ay xalay ku qabteen Hotel Dalxiis ee magaalada Hargeysa.

Ugu horayn Xildhibaan Dhugad oo Shirkaasi jaraa’idna ka hadlay waxa uu yidhi “Haddii aanu nahay xildhibaanadii Guurtida waxaanu maanta arkaynaa khalad dhacaya oo dad ka dhacaya oo dadkii maanta dalka u ahaa Madaxweynaha oo toban sanadood Madaxweynahay ahaa oo imika bishii Afaraad buu sii maqnaa oo ay ka muuqatay barnaamij aan hagaagsanayn oo aad u foolo xun oo aan labadii dawladood ee dalka iskaga danbeeyay mid-na u wanaagsanay Salaadiintan iyo Baarlamaankan siiba cuqaashan odayoogii ayuu ahaa anaguna waxaanu ahayn ragii la shaqayn jiray.

Daahir Rayaale wuxu xidhi jiray Saladiinta oo aan la odhan jirin Suldaan baad xidhay, wuxuu xidhi jiray kornaylada oo aan la odhan jirin kornayl-buu xidhay, wuxu xidhi jiray cid alaale iyo ciduu doono ninkasta oo magac leh wuu xidhi jiray, wax qabiil ah oo is urursaday oo odhan jiray Suldaan kayagii baad xidhay madaxdayadii baad xidhay oo yidhi Badhasaab kayagii baad xidhay waa waxaan la arag oo aan dhicin. Madaxweynihii doorashada lagaga adkaaday Salaadiinta oo dhan oo isu timid oo wax ka codsatay ayuu odhan jiray idiin yeeli maayo ee iska taga oo laga tagi jiray oo aan wax ceeb ah laga soo daba diri jirin.

Hadaba reer Boorama haddii ay yidhaahdaan nin saajin ah ayaa la badalay oo waanu mudaharaadaynaa oo Somaliland ayaanu ku kacayana maaha saajinka la badalay ee waa cudur calooshooda ku jira, maaha nin la badalay oo askari ah askaribaa la badalay waa Barootu Ceesaanta ka weyn shan iyo sideetan jir-baan ahay oo Somalilnd ayaan intaa joogay ilaa dawladdii hore ee Somalia iyadana waan la shaqaynayay, wali reer Awdal ciddi kamay dhiman askari kama dhiman maaliyadii Maxamed Siyaad Bare iyo tii ka horeysay tan dhalatay maaliyadeedii wixii oo maaliyad ahaa ayaa meesha ku degay, xoolahaa badan iyo nabadgalyadaa badan ee aan reer Awdal balaayaba arag ayaa maanta qaylo keenaya oo waxay leeyihiin waar kaligayo Somaali ka hadhi mayno halkay Soomaali martay ha nala mariyo oo hana la laayo oo waxay raadsanayaa halkay Somaali martay, waxaan leeyahay niman yahaw walalayaal maanta waxaad ku cabataan ma aragno waxaanu leenahay maanta waxa ala iyo waxaad sheegataan garan mayno saajin baa la badalay boroortu ceesanta ka weyn saajinka la badalay haddii uu weyn yahay mid aad ilmaadeer tihiin uunbaa lagu badalay Somaali kale ba laguuma keenin meel kale lagaagama keenin maalinkaa maanta ah ee ayanu joognana dawladdii aad idinku gacanta ku hayseen ee aan waxba la idiin odhan jirin saddex bilood bay sii maqnayd miydaan afartan baxa la sugayn, ha ahaato tan madaxweyne-ku xigeen baad leedihiin inuu dhaxlana waa laga yaabaa, waxaanu idiin leenahay maanta waxaanu idiin ka baryaynaa inaad dalka xaal siisaan in aad ka noqotaan arintaa maanta aad ku joogtaan ee foosha xun inaad ka noqotaan ayaanu idinka baryaynaa”.

Intaa ka dib waxa isaguna halkaasi ka hadlay Suldaan Yuusuf Muxumed Xiiray, kaas oo sheegay in salaadiin ahaan ay la shaqaynayeen isla markaana ay difaacayeen xukuumaddii Rayaaale sideedii sano ee ay xilka hayeen, loogana baahan yahay Salaadiinta Boorama inay la shaqeeyaan xukuumadda Siilaanyo.

Amid the chaos, money transfer is booming business in Somaliland

mid the chaos, money transfer is booming business in Somalia

With over one million Somali spread around the world the need for quick and easy way to send money is great. File Photo

By Odindo Ayieko  (email the author)

Posted Monday, September 20 2010 at 18:34

Amid bomb explosions, gun-totting warlords, women scampering for safety and bodies strewn all over, something positive is coming out of Somalia — a financial institution that is emerging as Africa’s largest money transfer company.

Dahabshiil, a Somali word meaning gold smelter, was born from the ashes of Somalia’s civil war.

It began as a small store in a tiny town in Burau, through which Somali immigrants send money to relatives at home, after the war started in 1988.

Its chief executive, Abdirashid Duale says Somalis in the diaspora formed a network to help those who were stranded back at home.

“Some needed to leave the country. There was a growing need for money which was not readily available; That was how the idea of a money transfer institution was born,” says Mr Duale.

Today, Dahabshiil — a family business— which also deals in telecommunications, is growing fast and has bases in over 40 countries including Australia, United Arab Emirates and Britain. The company has offices in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Sudan and Ethiopia.

“We are targeting other markets across Africa as well,” says Mr Duale.

The company, almost single-handedly, keeps the entire war-torn country afloat financially.

Dahabshiil’s headquarters in Hergeisa is a complete contrast of the business empire it has become — a modest building with uneven staircases, slanting walls and off-kilter balustrades.

The office has the relaxed charm of many a family-run African business. Duale’s father Mohammed Said, who founded the company, shuffles by in his sandals, a kanzu and a short traditional walking stick tucked under his arm, as he makes his way to a private office in the attic, where he sits cross-legged on the floor in front of a computer.

It is a far cry from Western Union’s Colorado headquarters or Moneygram’s in Minnesota, Dahabshiil’s competitors in the money transfer business. But then Hargeisa is an unlikely place to find a multi-million dollar financial services firm.

The building stands on a dusty street filled with potholes, battered cars and ambling pedestrians.

The tangled birds’ nests of wires that cling to every telegraph pole are testament to the recent boom in telephone connections.

Informal stalls that sell imported goods as well as Ethiopian and Kenyan-grown stimulant khat, (popularly referred to as miraa), line the roads.

The World Bank estimates that remittances worth around $1 billion a year reach Somalia from emigres in the US, Europe and the Gulf states.

Baarlamanka Kenya oo Qarka u Saaran inuu Dawladooda ku Khasbo Aqoonsiga Somaliland

Baarlamanka Kenya oo Qarka u Saaran inuu Dawladooda ku Khasbo Aqoonsiga Somaliland

27/09/2010 –

Dawladda Kenya waxay qarka u saaran tahay aqoonsato labada gobol ee Somaliland iyo Puntland si ay qabqablayaasha dagaalka ee Soomaaliya hubka u dhigaan”

Wargeyska The Standard

“Marka aynu ka hadlayno nabadda Somaliland oo nabad ahayd 17-kii sannadood ee u dambeeyey, marka loo eego koonfurta iyo badhtamaha Soomaaliya. Somaliland waxay la dagaallantay argagixisada iyo budhcad-baddeeda oo caalamka halis ku ah”

Guddoomiye-ku-xigeenka Baarlamanka Faarax Macallin

“Waxaannu kula talinaynaa dawladda Kenysa inay samayso siyaasad cad si ay u xoojiso xidhiidhka ganacsi ee ay la leedahay Somaliland, isla markaana ugala shaqayso ilaalinta nabadda mandaqadda Geeska Afrika”

Nuxurka warbixinta weftigii Baarlamanka Kenya ka diyaariyeen socdaalladoodii Somaliland

Nairobi (The Standard/Jam)- Baarlamanka waddanka Kenya, ayaa la sheegay inuu qarka u saaran ansixinta mooshin dawladooda ku khasbaya inay degdeg ugu aqoonsanto madabannaanida Jamhuuriyadda Somaliland.

Sidaa waxa shaaca ka qaaday wargeyska The Standard ee ka soo baxa caasimadda Nairobi oo cadadkiisii shalay xiganayey warbixin wufuuddii uu hoggaaminayey Guddoomiye-ku-xigeenka Baarlamanka Kenya Md. Faarax Macallin ka diyaariyeen socdaalladii kala dambeeyey ee ay ku yimaaddeen Somaliland, taasoo dhowaan Baarlamanka Kenya dood rasmi ah ka yeelan doono.

Guddoomiye-ku-xigeenka Baarlamanka Kenya Md. Faarax Macallin oo u warramayey shalay wargeyska The Standard, ayaa shaaca ka qaaday in dhowaan Golaha Baarlamanku dood ka yeelan doono warbixin aad u dheer oo wufuuddii uu hoggaaminayey ka diyaariyeen natiijada socdaalladii kala dambeeyey ee wufuuddii uu hoggaaminayey ku yimaaddeen Somaliland, taasoo haddii baarlamanku ansixiyo wax wax weyn ka tari doonta aqoonsi caalami ah oo Somaliland degdeg uga hesho beesha caalamka.

Md. Faarax Macallin oo hoggaaminayey weftiyo laba jeer oo ka dalbeeyey safarro xaqiiqo-raadis ah ku yimi Somaliland sannadihii 2009 iyo 2010, waxa kaloo uu sheegay in warbixin rasmi ah oo weftigoodu ka diyaariyeen socdaalladoodii Somaliland ay si dhaqso u horgeyn doonaan Baarlamanka Kenya, kadibna goluhu dood ka yeelan doono, arrintaas oo wargeysku ku tilmaamay mid muujinaysa in dadwladda Kenya qarka u saaran tahay aqoonsiga Somaliland.

Warbixin dheer oo wargeyska The Standard daabacay cadadkiisii soo baxay Axaddii shalay, 26 September 2010, taasoo lagu soo bandhigay xogo kala duwan wargeysku ka soo xigtay Md. Faarax Macallin iyo saraakiil ka tirsan dawladda taagta daran ee Sheekh Shariif, waxa uu ku bilaabay sidan:

“Dawladda Kenya ayaa qarka u saaran inay aqoonsato labada gobol ee Somaliland iyo Puntland si ay qabqablayaasha dagaalka ee Soomaaliya hubka u dhigaan.

Labadan gobol ee Soomaaliya ka go’ay, ayaa nabad buuxda ku naaloonayey 17-kii sanno ee u dambeeyay, waxana nabadda iyo xasilloonida ay ku jiraan uga mahadceliyay Qaramada Midoobay iyo ururka Midowga Africa oo sheegay inay ka duwan yihiin koonfurta iyo badhtamaha Soomaaliya oo caasimadda Muqdisho ku jirto, kuwaasoo dagaal muddo dheer ka socday curyaamiyay.

Dedaalka dawladda Kenya ugu jirto nabadaynta Soomaaliya, ayaa ahaa mid muuqda 20-kii sanno ee u dambeeyay, iyada oo marar badan isku dayday inay inay hubka ka tiiriso malleeshiyooyinka, si ay u soo dabbaasho nabadda iyo kala dambaynta dalka ay jaarka yihiin ee Soomaaliya.

Wafti xaqiiqo-raadis ah oo ka socda Baarlamaanka dalka Kenya oo booqasho ku tegay magaalo-madaxda Somaliland ee Hargeysa, kadib doorashadii dalkaas sida nabadgelyada ah uga dhacday 26kii June ee sannadkan, ayaa sheegay inay si diblomaasiyadaysan ula dhaqmi doonan labadan gobol, iyaga oo ku tixgelinaya nabadda ay gaadheen iyo iyagoo ka badbaadey malleeshiyooyin, argagixiso iyo budhcad-badeednimo.

Guddoomiye-ku-xigeenka Barlamaanka Kenya Md. Faarax Macallin oo koox weriyayaal ah kula hadlayey shalay magaalada Nairobi, ayaa caddeeyey inay barlamaan ahaan dood ka yeelan doonaan ahmiyadda qarameed, ammaan iyo dhaqaale ee Somaliland leedahay.

“Marka aynu ka hadlayno nabadda; aynu soo qaadano Somaliland oo nabad ahayd 17-kii sannadood ee u dambeeyey, marka loo eego koonfurta iyo badhtamaha Soomaaliya. Somaliland waxay la dagaallantay argagixisada iyo budhcad-baddeedda oo caalamka halis ku ah,” ayuu yidhi Faarax Macallin.

Aragatiyaha wufuuddu ayaa u muuqda in aanay tixgelin siinayn Muqdisho.

Safiirka Soomaaliya u fadhiya Kenya Mr. Maxamed Nuur oo shalay la hadlayey wargeyska The Standar, ayaa sheegay inkastoo Somaaliya ka jireen dagaallo iyo rabshado labaatankii sanno ee u dambeeyey, haddana midnimo tahay xalka keliya ee nabad lagu gaadhi karo.

“Dhibta Somoaaliya maanta haysataa waxa weeye waqti badan oo aynu ku luminay shirar loo qabto kooxaha iska soo horjeeda, kuwaas oo aan xal u helin dhibaatadaas.

Waddamada aamnu saaxiibka nahay waxaannu uga baahannahay inay naga taageeraan xagga millateriga iyo saanadda si ay dawladdu ugu dalka ugu soo dabbaasho nabadda iyo kala dambaynta,” ayuu yidhi Maxamed Nuur.

Madaxweynaha Soomaaliya Sheekh Shariif Sheekh Axmed oo toddobaadkii hore ka khudbad ka jeediyey shirweynihii Qaramada Midoobay ee dhowaan ku qabsoomay xaruntiisa magaalada New York, ayaa codsaday in la caawiyo dawladdiisa si ay meesha uga saarto qaska iyo qalalaasaha muddada dheer ka taagan dalkiisa.

Sidoo kale, Safiirka Soomaaliya u fadhiya dalka Kenya, ayaa isna tilmaamay in aanay wax macna ah sameynayn shirar badan oo la qabto, hadalka Madaxweyne Shariif-na yahay farriin ku socotay beesha caalamka, “Taasi waxay ahayd farriin madaxweynuhu u diray beesha caalamka, waxaannu toddobaadka dambe ka qaybgeli doonaa shir kale oo caalami oo ka dhici doona magaalada Madrid ee dalka Spain, kaasoo lagaga arrinsanayo xaaladda cakiran ee Soomaaliya, maxaa yeelay waxaynu la soconaa in kooxaha ka soo horjeeda dawladdu khalkhal gelinayaan ammaanka gobolka, kadib markii ay weerarro ismiidaamin ah ku qaadeen magaalada Kambaala ee dalka Uganda,” ayuu yidhi Maxamed Nuur.

Haseyeeshee, warbixin ay soo saareen weftiga ka socday Barlamaanka Kenya ee booqashada ku tegay Somailand, waxa ay ku yidhaahdeen; “Waxaannu kula talinaynaa dawladda Kenysa inay samayso siyaasad cad si ay u xoojiso xidhiidhka ganacsi ee ay la leedahay Somaliland, isla markaana ugala shaqayso ilaalinta nabadda mandaqadda Geeska Afrika.”

“Kuwa jecel iney kobciyaan aqoonta iyo nabadda waxay dawladda Kenya siinaysaa gacan, maxaa yeelay waxa jira dhallinyaro badan oo aan haysan wax shaqo ah, weftiguna waxay ballanqaadeen inay Somaliland abaalmarin caalami ah ku siin doonaan nabadda iyo deganaanshiyaha,” ayuu yidhi Guddoomiye-ku-xigeenka Barlamaanka Kenya Mr. Faarax Macallin.

Weftiga Barlamaanka Kenya ka soo saareen socdaalkoodii Somaliland waxay warbixintooda ku caddeeyeen in aqoonsi la’aanta bulshada caalamku saameyn xun ku yeelatay Somaliland oo aan xidhiidh ganacsi iyo mid millateri toona aan la yeelan karin waddamada caalamka.

Geesta kale, Safiirka Somaaaliya u fadhiya dalka Kenya, ayaa sheegay in caawimada Qaramadda Midoobay iyo qaar ka mid ah dalalka saaxiibka yihiin dawladda tamarta daran ee uu hoggaamiyo ay ka caawiyaan gargaarka bina’aadaminimo sida; cuntada, hoyga iyo dawooyika ay inta badan khalkhal geliyaan kooxda Al-shabaab.

Guddoomiye-ku-xigeenka Barlamaanka Kenya Faarax Macallin, waxa uu Somaliland ku ammaanay dawlad-wanaag, nabadda, xasilloonida iyo dhismaha dhammaan waaxyaha sharciyeed ee xukuumadda Somaliland, “Waxa ka hirgalay Somaliland maamul-wanaag, nabad amma xasillooni, deganaansho siyaasadeed, laamaha amniga oo si wanaagsan u shaqeeya, sharci-dejinta iyo adeegyada bulshada oo si habsami leh uga shaqeeya Somaliland, laakiin waxaas oo dhan waxa dhaawici kara haddii la waayo xirfadihii daruuriga ah ee loo baahnaa si loo hirgeliyo,” ayuu yidhi Faarax Macallin.

Isagoo intaa in inkastoo ay xaddidan tahay taageerada Somaliland hesho, haddana waxay xukuntay 48 ka mid ah budhcad-badeedda iyo argagaxisada.

Kenya is on the verge of recognising the breakaway region of Somaliland (The Standard)

Kenya is on the verge of recognising the breakaway region of Somaliland and Puntland to get Somali warlords to silence their guns.

The two are breakaway regions and have enjoyed relative peace for the last 17 years eliciting view whether they should secede. The two are petitioning the United Nations and the African Union to be acknowledged as sovereign states; different from the other war-ravaged central region that includes the capital Mogadishu.

Kenya’s move is seen as one of the many efforts – spreading 20 years – to force the militia in Somalia to end fighting.

Ethiopian President Meles Zenawi has been accused of fuelling the conflict in Somalia.

A delegation of Kenyan MPs that visited Hargeisa, Somaliland capital, on fact-finding mission after peaceful elections and change of power on June 26, have recommended that Kenya considers engaging diplomatically with the regions regarded as peace enclaves and semi-autonomous entities that have warded off insurgency, piracy, and terrorism.

Vital lessons

The leader of the delegation, House Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim, told The Standard On Sunday the group’s report is likely to be debated in Parliament as an urgent matter of national importance given its security and economic implications.

“In the interest of regional peace, let’s engage with Somaliland. Somaliland has had peace for 17 years and there is a lot the larger Somalia can learn from the relative stability. They combat terrorism and piracy that have been a major threat to international security,” says Maalim, MP for Lagdera, which borders volatile Somalia.

However, the views of the delegation are unlikely to find favour in Mogadishu. Somali ambassador to Kenya Mohammed Nur told The Standard On Sunday that despite the two-decade old conflict, a unitary state is still the ideal situation.

“The problem Somalia faces today is that we have spent too much time in conferences that do not resolve the crisis. What we want friendly countries to do is provide the military and material support to beef up government efforts to restore peace and stability in Somalia,” says Nur.

Somali President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed Sharif kicked off an international campaign last week during his address to the United Nations General Assembly when he appealed for action to stamp out the violence in his country. Nur sees no sense in “more and more conferences”.

“It is the same message the president will be taking next week to another international conference in Madrid, Spain, that will address Somalia crisis. This is because we are aware the insurgents are threatening regional peace after the Kampala bombing,” says the Somali envoy.

Positive engagement

In its report, the delegation recommends that the Kenya Government should develop a framework for limited engagement with Somali land to promote trade and enhance security in the Horn of Africa. “For those who are able to access education, Kenya should provide assistance because there are many idle youth. The delegations said there should be an international reward for stability,” says Maalim.

According to the report, lack of international recognition has negatively affected Somaliland, which cannot do business with other governments and multilateral organisations.

Now, says Nur, such assistance is available through the non-functioning and fragile Transitional Federal Government led by President Sharif.

UN and other friendly states can only provide humanitarian assistance such as food, shelter and medicine, often intercepted by Al Shabab.

Maalim says positive engagement would result in peaceful region influencing Somalia.

There should be a premium good governance, peace and political stability in the form of funding the operations of police, judiciary and the civil service, which are rather weak for lack of necessary skills,” he says. the Somaliland regime, despite limited resources, has arrested and charged 48 hardcore terrorists and pirates.

If the Kenyan Parliament approves the report, it will send a signal to the Government to engage and lead the campaign for the recognition of the Republic of Somaliland, as a full member of Inter- Governmental Authority on Development, the African Union, and the United Nations.

Your secret African travel destinations:
Somaliland surprises

afrol News, 16 September – Somaliland, with marvellous beaches, breathtaking diving opportunities, scenic mountains and rich culture, is the definitive frontier of tourism. Not because it is unsafe, but because there is absolutely no tourism infrastructure and you’ll feel like you are the first visitor.

Don’t confuse quiet, democratic and well organised Somaliland with chaotic and violent (southern) Somalia. On most maps, it is the same, as Somaliland is not an internationally recognised country. But Somaliland, de facto independent since 1991, has managed to build the most robust democracy of the entire region and takes great pride in it.

It is this confusion with Somalia and Somaliland’s lack of international funding that has so far prevented tourists from discovering the riches of the country and developers from constructing tourist resorts along its magnificent coast.

Therefore, Somaliland is the perfect destination for the adventurous backpacker, wanting to “discover” virgin lands without fellow tourists, but also willing to bring all she/he needs in the rucksack and accept low comforts. But Somali hospitality and Somaliland sights easily weigh up for these hassles.

There is little travel planning information available in books and on the web. But Lonely Planet’s Africa guide includes a few pages on Somaliland worth reading, listing the following as one of the highlights of the country: “Enjoy the smug feeling of impressing your fellow travellers: ‘Yes, I’ve been to Somaliland!’.” By the way, the Lonely Planet representative visiting Somaliland was unable to hide he immediately fell in love with the country.

So while you wait for the more detailed planned afrol News travel guide to Somaliland, this “secret African travel destinations” feature should inspire you to consider some of Somaliland’s main sites and adventures; to go there before everybody else will do!

Endless talks in Hargeisa
You will probably reach Somaliland through its surprisingly vibrant capital, Hargeisa, either overland from Ethiopia or by air flying for example the country’s own private airliner Daallo Airlines.

Hargeisa is far from spectacular. Don’t come here to see big palaces or ancient architectural pearls. Still, do dwell here to dive into the articulated and wide-spanning Somali culture in peaceful and well organised surroundings.

Getting in contact with Somalilanders – not being difficult at all, and English is quite widely spoken – you risk getting talked your head off. Somali culture is very oral and mastering poetry forms part of basic education. Both the good story and the philosophical analysis are always around the corner, and the freedom and diversity of Hargeisa also permits the deeper and meaningful discussion about hot issues.

The good talk, permitting the traveller to dig deeper into Somali history, politics and culture, is best share

d over a good meal in Hargeisa’s many excellent restaurants. Eating out is marvellous in Hargeisa with all kinds of African and western dishes available. Visitors usually love to dine in outside restaurants where people eat delicious roasted camel meet, camel milk, fried sheep liver, all kinds of fresh seafood and other local products in the open air, under shadow-blessing trees.

If you however need a drink to engage in a good talk, Somaliland may be a good country to unhook you from this bad habit. Alcohol is prohibited in Somaliland. Nevertheless, in Hargeisa alcohol is available but not in public places. One has to buy it from the black market and drink it at home, alone.

Hargeisa also has excellent hotels, including the five-star Ambassador Hotel close to the airport and several three star hotels. Cheap hostels and guesthouses are widely available, and for longer stays, beautiful and low-priced villas are available and a recommended buy. This wealth of safe accommodation choices contributes to making Hargeisa a low-threshold destination; available for any type of traveller.

Berbera and the coast
Somaliland’s third largest city, Berbera, is far smaller, but still has sufficient hotels and restaurants to offer a good infrastructure for most travellers. In addition, this port town has a more comfortable climate, fantastic beaches and a charming architecture. The somewhat sleepier town is located about 150 kilometres north-east of Hargeisa and easily and safely reached by bus, bushtaxi or air from the capital.

Berbera can boast of more history than Hargeisa, with its older Somali, Arab and British colonial architecture bearing testimony to the city’s former role as a major trade port in the Gulf of Aden. Berbera was also less damaged than Hargeisa during the Somali civil war that led up to Somaliland’s declaration of independence in 1991. But lack of international recognition has let the great potentials of the Berbera port crumble, with Djibouti now having taken over the role of the region’s main maritime transport hub.

Kilometres of lush sandy beaches stretch out from Berbera, to the great joy of the local population, making active recreational use of them. Berbera used to be a Soviet and later US military base, and locals still remember how the Russians and Americans used every occasion to enjoy their beach. Then, the city was livelier. But remnants of these times still exist, and Berbera restaurants can still offer visitors delicious seafood and other Somali and international dishes.

Beyond Berbera, the rough adventures of Somalil

and begin. Especially the westernmost coastline, in Awdal province, can easily claim a title among Africa’s most spectacular landscapes and seascapes. Rugged, green cliffs, tropical beach bays, unexploited coral reefs and ancient towns and ruins – this surely will become an international tourist destination in the future!

The Awdal coast is dotted with small villages and towns, but has no major settlements or tourism infrastructure. The dirt road along the coast is a disaster, and the recommended way of travelling would be in your own boat (do however seek regular updates on the piracy situation!). Travellers should bring all kinds of provisions as only the most basic items can be bought locally. For accommodation, bring your tent or pay locals for a bed.

The best would nevertheless be to seek a guide in Berbera or in Boorama – the latter located inland with a dirt road connecting it to Zeila at the coast. A local guide will help out with language – here Somali is mostly the only language spoken – customs, contacts, transports and accommodation.

From Berbera, the first major settlement is Lughaya. Here, the beach with nearby grazing camels and the unspoilt reefs are the main attraction. Also, Lughaya is a good place to mingle with rural locals, mostly cattle nomads and farmers, to learn about the other side of Somaliland, the non-urban lifestyle that still dominates the country.

Further west, the landscape culminates in scenic cliffs, bays and beaches. Especially the smaller islands off the coast, for example Saad-Din Island, provide the best coral reefs and spectacular dives. Off course, no diving equipment rentals are available.

This breathtaking coastline ends up in Zeila (or “Seylac”, on some maps). Today, the town of around 25,000 inhabitants is a mere shadow of its historic heydays, when it was capital of the Sultanate of Adal. The Sultanate was an influential power in the 9th and 10th century. Zeila again flourished as a city state and a trade and learning hub from the 14th to the 19th century. During colonial times, Zeila lost out to Djibouti port in French Somaliland and the British port in Berbera, leading to rapid decline of the town.

But the ruins of Zeila’s old city can still be seen and culturally interested travellers can enjoy pondering about it and walking through the old buildings, mosques and city quarters. Basic accommodation and restaurants are available. Finally, the beaches, reefs and landscapes are tremendous. Altogether, this makes Zeila one of the most charming and recommended coastal destinations in Somaliland. Zei

la is most easily reached from Hargeisa, via Boorama.

Soulseeking further inland
A Somalilander would say that, to really understand the country’s culture, history and soul, you should look inland, away from the coast. Here, where generation after generation has struggled to overcome a challenging climate by small-scale farming and semi-nomadic pastoralism, the true essence of Somali culture is found.

Lucky then, that there are quite a few worthy sites, landscapes and activities for travellers in the historic inlands of Somaliland.

A “must visit” site, Las Geel, takes you way back in history, up to 7,000 years. Located some 50 kilometres outside Hargeisa, close to the Berbera road, Las Geel is the richest, most well-preserved, but least studied and least visited prehistoric rock painting site in the world. It was only discovered in 2003 and still lacks professional preservation, but can easily be visited from Hargeisa.

Deeper into the soulscapes of Somaliland, a visit to the beautiful Erigavo mountain area is truly recommended – but only if security permits it. Erigavo town (also written “Ceerigaabo”) and its hinterland are closer to troubled Puntland in Somalia-proper, which makes claims to the eastern parts of Somaliland. Before travelling to the east, especially Sanaag and Sool provinces, you should contact tourism authorities in Hargeisa, asking for the current security situation! They will give you an honest answer, as their greatest concern is the security of foreigners.

If the Erigavo area is calm – which it usually is – the growing provincial town at 1800 meters altitude can be reached by plane or poor roads. Erivago is the entrance to the highest mountains in the region, reaching over 2400 metres. With the height, the climate improves and the vegetation increases. Some of the misty valleys even surprise with juniper forests.

The scenic mountain landscape and its many trails are an open invitation to trekkers looking for the unusual. In addition to some breathtaking landscapes, wildlife – while rapidly declining – is interesting and includes jackals, gazelles and baboons. Especially, Somaliland is famous for its extensive and exotic birdlife, with over 600 species known, and the mountains being the best place to observe them.

The area also has some nice challenges for mountaineering and rock climbing, including Shimbibris Mountain (2450 m, in the Surud mountain range). Of course, you will have to bring all necessary equipment as nothing is found locally. But you will be able to brag about your exotic peak bagging in Somal

iland when you get home.

Make sure to get a guide knowing the area well and able to introduce you to villagers, farmers and nomads. Alternatively, if lucky, the many foreign humanitarian agency workers in Erigavo can introduce you to someone or may even invite you to join them.

In Erigavo, or anywhere else in the Somaliland countryside, there is one particularly memorable activity that can be organised, especially for the younger traveller. Spend a day or two with a typical Somali nomad group and see the men watering camels, the young lads milking and herding camels, while monkeys lead their life in the background. You can sleep in a Somali traditional hut or in the open air courtyard, where you drink milk in wooden containers, eat food in wooden spoons and talk yourself to sleep under the stars.

It doesn’t get more memorable, and you couldn’t get deeper into the Somali soul!

Practical advices
Somaliland is not the standard tourist destination, meaning you should plan your trip well if going outside Hargeisa and Berbera. If you want some comfort, make sure to contact Somaliland tourism authorities or local industry specialists such as Daallo Airlines before you go, asking them to tailor your trip.

If you will be backpacking through the landscapes of Somaliland, make sure to bring all you need from Hargeisa, Berbera or abroad. For example, you cannot count on getting even scuba diving equipment where you suddenly need it. Always have enough water available! And do not shy away from listening to authorities when it comes to security, as kidnappings of Westerners have occurred, especially in the east.

All travellers should consider Somaliland’s tough climate as a key to travel timing. There are two rainy seasons – March to June and October to November – and unlike other travel destinations, this is the time to go. Avoid the dry season from July to September, as temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius make travelling exhausting. Anytime from December to June would be a good time.

You need a visa to go to Somaliland, which will be issued rather easily at Somaliland’s Liaison Offices in Ethiopia, the UK or the US.

Now, get set for the experience of a lifetime. Have a safe journey!

Somaliland Army Drives Out Ethiopian Rebels

Statement by the Ethiopian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

On Saturday last week a group of over two hundred heavily armed men landed from two dhows along the largely uninhabited Somaliland coast south of Zeila, between Zeila and Lughaya. They were met by three large trucks made up to look as though they were transporting salt, and taken directly towards the border with Ethiopia, some 120 kms away. They successfully passed through at least one check point en route towards the border, but were spotted close to the small town of Abdulqadir not far from the border. The group was apparently intending to cross the border into Ethiopia’s Somali Regional State through the remote Maar Maar hills in Awdal region. Somaliland security forces rapidly closed in on the group, alerting Ethiopian security and military forces on the other side of the border. Just across the border inside Ethiopia they were surrounded by Ethiopian troops and Regional militia forces. They refused to surrender, and according to the Somali Regional State authorities, over 120 were killed and a senior commander captured. As of Wednesday, the remainder were surrounded.

By then, it was very clear who was in the group and where they had come from. Two prisoners captured earlier, before the group fled Somaliland, had documentary evidence demonstrating their membership of the ONLF, that is of the ONLF faction headed by Admiral Osman which has been based in Asmara for several years. They also admitted to having been trained in Eritrea before setting out on this attempt to infiltrate Ethiopia’s Somali Regional State. According to Somaliland’s Deputy Foreign and International Cooperation Minister, Mohammed Yonis Awale, the group had been armed with a total of 64 rocket launchers and other equipment. This as well as currency and documents proved the group had come from Eritrea where they had been trained. Subsequently, in a press conference in Hargeysa, Somaliland’s Army Commander, General Elmi Robleh Furr, and the Somaliland Police Commissioner, Nuah Taani, gave details of some of the material and equipment abandoned after the group realized they had been spotted. This included bazookas, chemical materials (presumably for bomb making), cash including Eritrean nakfa, communication equipment, and military training manuals written in Somali and Amharic. Predictably, if implausibly, the ONLF have denied that these fighters belonged to their organization or that any of their fighters were trained in Eritrea.

This is not the first time that ONLF fighters from Eritrea have been sent to Ethiopia. Several hundred were sent to the Somali Regional State via the Islamic Courts Union in Mogadishu in late 2006. It was some of those fighters who were responsible for the appalling massacre at Abule at the end of April 2007 when 65 Ethiopian Somali workers and 9 Chinese technicians were slaughtered, most while asleep or lining up for breakfast – surprisingly, no party in the international community saw fit to condemn this appalling terrorist atrocity. After the defeat of the ICU, Eritrea tried to infiltrate small groups of ONLF fighters into the Somali Regional State through Somaliland on several occasions. Somaliland police have picked up people trying to cross the border before but according to General Elmi this is the first time such a large group of armed fighters have tried this route into Ethiopia’s Somali Regional State.

Eritrea has been providing support for one faction of the ONLF at least since 1998 after Admiral Osman took over the chairmanship of one fraction. The government of Eritrea set up three training centers for ONLF fighters in western Eritrea, and another later at Mulober not far from Assab in south eastern Eritrea. At Mulober, training which included the handling of explosives and intelligence as well as ordinary military matters, was directed by President Isaias’s presidential advisor, Yemane Gebreab. Full details of this were provided by two senior ONLF commanders who surrendered two years ago. The majority of these trainees were sent to the Somali Region in 2006, leaving less than a hundred at Mulober at the time. This latest group have apparently been recruited over the last two or three years.

The reason for this attempted incursion appears to be that Admiral Osman’s fraction of the ONLF and Eritrea are trying to respond to the fact that a majority of the ONLF, headed by its Supreme Council, has been in negotiations with the Ethiopian Government and there are reports that it will sign an agreement very soon. The ONLF’s move followed the agreement made by another opposition group in the Somali Regional State, the United Western Somali Liberation Front earlier this year. As a result of the growing support within the region, and within the ONLF for peace, Admiral Osman’s group and the Eritrean leadership have been trying hard to demonstrate that the ONLF can still remain active. Indeed, there have been reports that the Eritrean government has been putting pressure on Admiral Osman and his remaining supporters to try and persuade them to continue a struggle that most of the group now want to bring to an end.
