Richard Turere, 13 jir ah , waa wiil yar oo u dhashay dalka Kenya, waxaanu ka dhashay reer xoolo dhaqato ah oo caasimadda Kenya ee Nairobi duleedkeeda deggen, Nairobi´s nationalpark. Waxa uu bilaabay in xoolaha lo´da ee reerkoodu lahaayeen in uu raaco, marku ahaa 9 jir. Waxaa haddaba goobtaa ay degenaayeen reerkoodaa u dhawaa national park, oo xayawaanka dibad-galeenku ku nool yihiin, khaasatan libaaxa. Richard Turere, oo yidhi waxa aan aad u necebahay libaaxa, sababtoo ay tahay, waxa uu dhameeyey oo uu cunay xooalahaygii. Isagii hadalkiisii siiw ata ayaa waxa uu yidhi”””” markii aan arkay in libaaxyadii dhmeeyeen xoolihii aanu lahayn ayaan ku fikaray in aan xal keeno, si anay mar danbe aanay xoolaha nooga cunin dadkana aanay wax u yeelin””
Da´da uu ku ikktiraacay fikradan cajiibka, waxa ay ahayd isagoo jira 11 sanno.
Fikradii aan ikhtiraacay waxa ay ahayd, oo aan ogaaday, in Libaaxu ka baqo waxa dhaqdhaqaaya ee laydhka leh: Waxa aan sameeyey in aan tijaabiyo firadaas, maalin maalmha ka mid ah ayaan soo qaatay tooj, anigoo la dhaqdhaqaaqaya toojkii, ayey libaaxii soo dhaafi waayey meeshii ay joogeen.
Waxaa markaa ii soo baxday in ay ka baqdaan laydh dhaqdhaqaaqaya.
Fikradii waan sii horemariyey oo waxaan soo qaatay, waayiro (xadh ka laydhka) waxaan ku xidhay baytaruga baabuurta,
batarigana oo ku shaqeeya cadceeda (a solar panel.l) ayan ku talaalay, ka dibna waxa aan geliyey oo ku xidhay xadhigii waayirka ahaa laydh big biglaynaya. Libaaxyadii markii ay arkeen goobtii oo lagu xidhay laydhadh big-biglayna way baqdeen oo uma ay soo dhawaan karayn, markii ay arkeen laydh big-biglayna xeradii xooluhu ku jireen iyo hoygii reerku ku noolaayeen.
runtii waa fikrad cajiiba. Waxaana arrintan aad ula dhacay dad badan oo libaaxu dhibaato weyn ku hayey nolosha dadka iyo xoolahaba. Waxaanay faaído weyn oo waxtar leh u soo kordhisay dadyawga xoolo dhaqatada ah ee had iyo jeer dhibaato dhaawac iyo dhimasho kala kulmi jiray libaaxyada dalkaas Kenya ku nool.Richard Turere, oo ay immika da´diisu tahay 13 jir, ayaa laga soo kaxeeyey meeshii uu xoolaha ku raaci jiray, waxaana qaadtay iskuulka ugu heerka sarreeya xaga waxbarashada dalka Kenya, ee la yidhaahdo, Brookhouse International School. Waxanu doonayaa mustqabalka in uu noqdo injineera xaga diyaaradaha. Wiigan ayaa lagu soo casuumay in uu ka qayb galo shirka ay iskugu yimaadaan dadka dunnida wax ku soo kordhiya xaga ikhtiraaca, (invention) TED confr Iskuulka ugu wanaagsan xga waxbarashada dalka Kenya, Brookhouse International School Richard Torere, 13 jir, doonaya mustaqbalka in uu noqdpo ingineer xaga diyaaradaha Waxa aad iyo aad loola yaabay isaga oo da´daa jira oo haddana aanu wax aqoonna haba yaraatee u lahayn isku xidhka waayirada xaga laydhka. Waayadii hore ee libaaxu ku noolaa Somaliland, waxa la odhan jiray libaaxu dabka ayuu ka baqdaa. Arrintan ma la odhan karaa waxa ay daba socodtaa sidii berigii hore loola dhaqmi jiray libaaxyada ku nool dalka Somaliland. Waxaa jiri jirtay in reer miyiga Somaliland ku noolaa wakhtiyadii hore , ay samayn jireen habeenkii marka uu gabalku dhaco in reerka dibadiisa dab laga shidi jiray oo lagu weegaari jiray, si aannu libaaxu reerka ugu soo dhicin habeenkii. Waxa cad in libaaxu iyo dabka ay col yihiin. Libaaxu waxa uu ka baqdaa dabka. Marka xaabada la shido waakan dabka ay ka duulaan dhimbiilo jac jacda haya oo duul duulaya. Fikardan uu keenay, Richard Turere, waa mid wanaagsan oo waayahan immika la joogo la jaan qaadaysa. Laakiin fikradda asalkeedu waxa ay ku arooraysaa uun in libaaxu ka baqo dabka, waayo dabku markuu baxayo iftiin buuu keenaa. koncebtigu waa isku mid, xaabo dab ka baxayo, iftiin iyo dhimbiil duul duulaysa. hambalyo weyn ayaan u dirayaa Richard Turere.
Officials say a new flight to Somaliland is planned
A Turkish delegation has visited Hargeisa, the self-declared republic of Somaliland in what it said was to strengthen existing relations by providing technical and social aid.
An international flight by national carrier Turkish Airlines, which started plying the Mogadishu route earlier this month, is also planned, the delegation said.
It is the second such visit to by Turkish officials in two weeks to Somaliland, which is not recognised internationally.
Turkish Ambassador to Somalia Hani Torun, the leader of the delegation, said that Turkey and Somaliland enjoyed strong relations.
“Our assistance will have impact on agriculture, health and education,” he said, adding that an assessment team from his country was due in Hargeisa soon to determine the sectors to be targeted.
“Upcoming investments will include international flight to Somaliland by Turkish Airlines,” he said without setting a date.
Turkey will assist Somaliland to repair the general hospital in Hargeisa and two schools teaching Turkish curriculum.
Archaeological and historical sites in Somaliland with links to the Ottoman Empire that ruled the northern regions of Somalia in the 18th century would also benefit.
The ambassador visited the port town of Berbera on the Gulf of Aden that hosts historical sites like mosques and other ancient buildings from the days of the empire.
The earlier visit was led by the Somali Programme Coordinator of Turkeys International Cooperation and Development Agency (TIKA), Mr Abdulahad Kodkagi, and accompanied by representatives of the Turkish Prime Minister.
Turkey has noticably deepened its engagement with the horn of Africa region since intervening with aid following last year’s famine in Somalia.

a Turkish petroleum company made an investment of $1 billion in Somaliland
Turkish Ambasador to Somaliland/Somalia And president of Somaliland mr. Siilaanyo, met at the presidetial palace, Hargeisa, Somaliland
Last year Turkish foreign policy towards the Middle East was largely determined the constraints of the Syrian problem. Despite this Turkey managed to increase its influence in the Middle East by creating a strategic relationship with Egypt. Meanwhile it is now virtually essential that Turkey increase its foreign policy involvement in Africa in order to protect its interests.
As for the countries which were not affected by the Arab Spring, they are currently experiencing serious anxiety about how they should preserve their stability. In all these tremors, Turkish diplomacy undertook active initiatives of approching somaliland because of it’s stability, in order to undertake humanitarian and political tasks. In some situations lost by Arabs. Because of the troubles in somalia,Turke is convenced the undeniable chance that can be created a bond of friendship that opted out by Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to develop its relations with Somaliland as part of its search for new allies in the East Africa ( Horn) to protect its interests. The clearest illustration of this new relationship is the flow of visits by senior government officials in both Somaliland and Turkey. The two countries and the economic and strategic agreements signed as a result of them..
Turkey and Africa
Ankara continues to support the political process in Somaliland and Somalia. Mr Ahmet Davutoğlu, Turkey Foreign Minister, has had the honour of being the first foreign guest ever to address the enemty between tow Somalis. As far as humanitarian aspects are concerned, Turkish institutions and organisations are continuing to send aid to both countries.
At the same time, it is also abundantly clear that the fact that Turkey’s position in regional affairs is steadily growing stronger has made certain powers anxious. There are also some tribal leaders and “war chieftains” who object to Turkey having such a role. A glance at the history of Somalia shows that the situation there has to do with the interaction of regional and national short-comings and that a struggle over its security which is totally different the situation in Somaliland.can be discerned coming over the horizon. It may be recalled in this context that an armed attack was carried out in October against Mr Mustafa El Haşimi, Africa Chief of TIKA [the Turkish International Aid Organisation] in the town of Galkayo in central Somalia and details of it have never been made public. Then there is the fact that a Turkish petroleum company made an investment of $1 billion in Somaliland, and that some officials in the region have interpreted this as support for the Somaliland declaration of independence. Another section of opinion in Mogadishu believes that the investment was aimed at detaching that region from the other Somali territories and shuold dealt only with Somaliland and Somalia.The crisis was obviously chiefly about the desire to strengthen bilateral economic relations, most importantly over petrol of Somaliland.
Talk of the point now reached in Turkish-African relations takes us on to the greatest market crisis in Africa, So Turkish foreign policy towards the Horn of Africa last year in general developed within the constraints of the Somalis ( Somaliland & Somalia) problem. Despite this, Turkey extended its influence and creating a bridge of strategic relationship with Africa to protect its interests affecting in both the short and the long term.

Turkish Firm Eyes Somaliland
30 October 2012
Genel Energy, an Ankara-based oil firm with vast investments in northern Iraq, announced yesterday that it has obtained an exploration license for Somaliland, the self-declared East African country not formally recognized by the international community.
“Because of its similarities with the geographical structure of the Arab peninsula, it is strongly predicted that Somaliland, a region Genel Energy prioritizes for its investment program, has important oil and coal assets,” Genel said in a press release on Oct. 29.
The company solidified its presence in northern Iraq with the acquisitions of the Bina Bawi and Miran fields this year.
$1 billion in cash
The London-listed oil explorer holds some $1 billion in cash for new investments according to the statement, which did not elaborate on the finances of the Somaliland project. It added that the company will make use of its experience working in northern Iraq in exploring the new field, which is about half the size of the Iraqi project.
The company also holds licenses for exploration in Malta and the Ivory Coast.
The autonomous region of Somaliland is not a safe haven due to security concerns and ongoing unrest in central Somalia. Yet Genel quoted a recent World Bank report declaring the region suitable for private sector structuring despite the problems in its vicinity.
The region declared its independence in 1991 following a civil war in the 1980s. The international community sees the land as an autonomous region while President Ahmed Muhammed Silanyo, elected in 2010, rules the country.
Turkey is among the main international supporters of both Somalia and Somaliland. Solamiland Foreign Minister Muhammad A. Omar was also present at the second Somalia Conference in Istanbul in May, where he met with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, Genel said.
The merger process between Genel – the Turkish company owned by Mehmet Emin Karamehmet – and Vallares – a fund founded by former BP chief executive Tony Hayward, British financier Nat Rothschild, banker Julian Metherell and investment manager Tom Daniel – was completed in September 2011, establishing Genel Energy International Limited. The company had an initial $2 billion reserve when its investments began in northern Iraq, controlled by the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).

In Praise of Somaliland — A Beacon of Hope in the Thorn of Africa
In Praise of Somaliland — A Beacon of Hope in the Thorn of Africa
28 June 2011
In contrast, the north-west breakaway region of the Republic of Somaliland is an oasis of peace, stability and progress in the Horn of Africa. Imperfect, but moving in the right direction, in May this year the country celebrated its sixteenth anniversary of independence.
Against all odds, and with little international recognition or aid, the three million people of Somaliland have – largely by their own efforts – begun to establish a secure, functioning democratic state and a fair degree of economic stability and growth. This is a truly remarkable achievement in a region of Africa that has long been a byword for chaos, repression and war.
Somaliland, a former British Protectorate, gained independence in 1960 and became the first free Somali nation to join the United Nations. In a unity move that most Somalilanders now deeply regret, the country joined with the former Italian protectorate to the south to form the Republic of Somalia.
Under the dictator Siad Barre, who seized power in a military coup in 1969, the new nation was beset by brutality.
Following the collapse of his military regime and of the Somali state, Somali-land declared independence on 18th May 1991.
Over the last decade and a half, the predominantly Muslim nation has made the transition from an autocratic clan-based society, notorious for its poor governance, conflict and human rights abuses, to a peaceful and progressive multi-party democracy.
A referendum in 2001 led to the adoption of a new constitution. Since then, Somalilanders have held successful elections for President, the House of Representatives and local government.
While Somalia has not had a free election since the 1960s, Somaliland has held three mandates since the turn of the millennium, each of which has been declared free and fair by international election observers.
In contrast to the intestinal conflicts that bedevil Somalia and many other African nations, Somaliland has found a way to negotiate and resolve these rivalries peacefully. It has bought previously hostile clans together in a pluralistic system that minimizes conflict by incorporating the clan elders into the advisory upper house.
An enviable peace
