A Week in the Life of Michael Keating
(From the June/July 2016 issue of Chatham House’s The World Today magazine)
My day starts with some exercise, break­fast in my room, then an 8am planning session. The schedule typically includes meetings in town with politicians, receiv­ing Somali or international visitors, and seeing colleagues working on issues such as elections, security sector reform, rule of law, child protection, gender, human rights, food security, displacement and reconciliation.
 
There are around 500 international UN staff in Somalia, the majority in Moga­dishu. Many more are based in Kenya. The Somali authorities would like the diplo­matic and aid communities to shift entirely to Somalia, but security concerns, logisti­cal practicalities and the cost of maintain­ing staff are deterrents.
 
 
Getting around can be a major opera­tion. A close protection team accompa­nies me day and night, plus local security teams when I move around Mogadishu. I long to shop in local markets, linger in the tea houses and seaside restaurants serving lobster but they are off bounds. I do make quick impromptu visits – for example to the fish market in the capital and the live­stock market in Hargeisa.
 
 
I occasionally visit the regions to meet authorities, elders, business people, wom­en and youth groups. The UN has well protected compounds in six locations and staff in several outposts, from Bosasso and Garowe in the north to Kismayo and Baidoa in the south. Sometimes we have to fly our own bullet-proof vehicles with us, landing on murram airstrips cleared of goats and camels.
 
 
Much of my time is spent facilitating discussions among Somalis on building a federal state, a political adventure for them – and me. Twenty-five years of civil war have destroyed the country’s institutional infrastructure.
 
 
There are many grey areas in the 2012 Provisional Constitution, including the relationship
between the central govern­ment and federal states, the respective powers of the president and prime minister, resource management and sharing. Every step is subject to complex negotiations. The end result will be a uniquely Somali state which accommodates both clan and national identity.
 
 
Rebuilding capacity to provide security will take time and is highly political, giv­en the levels of distrust. Moving beyond exclusively clan based politics will only be possible by working with clan power bro­kers, not against them.
 
 
The population has low expectations of and little faith in government. In many areas, Al Shabaab is more effective in pro­viding security and rule of law – albeit their own brutal version – than government.
 
 
Security is a major priority. The Security Council-mandated African Union Mission in Somalia has 22,000 troops from Burun­di, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda in the south and centre of the country. Having cleared urban areas of Al Shabaab over the last five years, AMISOM is trying to adapt to a change of insurgency tactics: hit and run assaults on military bases, and spectacular attacks against civilians.
 
 
The UN is also a target, not least as we provide non-lethal support to AMISOM, including food, water, transport, health and communications. I am the senior UN security official in the country – a heavy responsibility.
 
 
I see the President and Prime Minister at least twice a week, sometimes together. Our conversations have been dominated by the upcoming limited franchise elec­toral process at the end of the current par­liament’s term in August, the complex­ity of getting buy-in to the model and the challenge of implementation, including ensuring women’s participation. This will be a pivotal moment in Somalia’s political journey.
 
 
In 2012, using the so-called ‘4.5 formu­la’ – equal representation for the four big clans plus space for minorities – just 135 clan elders selected 275 MPs. This time, the Electoral College will be expanded a hundred fold – to 14,000. There will be an Upper House chosen by federal states – a modest but significant shift away from ‘4.5’.
 
 
One person, one vote elections are scheduled for 2020 – a hugely ambitious goal given that
there is no civil or voter registry and that the institutional and legal infrastructure to run elections is not in place. Somaliland has managed six elec­tions over the last 25 years, so it can be done.
 
 
Somalia is a theatre in which regional rivalries have been played out for dec­ades. These inevitably persist but there is a surprising degree of international con­sensus that chaos in Somalia is in no-one’s interest. There are about 20 diplomatic missions in Mogadishu, including China, Ethiopia, the EU, Kenya, Turkey, Qatar, the UK and the UAE. France, the US and others have secured plots and have plans to open embassies.
 
 
I clear my head by walking or bicycling along the beach next to our compound. The ‘Beware of sharks’ signs are intimidat­ing but in the unremitting heat, I cannot resist an occasional quick dip in the ocean. I get to bed around midnight after a 15-hour day and after calls to family, I sleep well.

United States Concern Over Delays in Somalia’s Electoral Process

Press Statement

Mark C. Toner
Deputy Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
May 20, 2016

Share


The United States is increasingly concerned about delays in the 2016 Somali electoral process. The Federal Government of Somalia, Somali parliament, and regional leaders have repeatedly voiced their commitment to hold an electoral process on schedule, in accordance with the Somali constitution and resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.

The continuing legitimacy of Somali federal institutions depends on Somalia’s leaders following through with a transparent political transition prior to the expiration of the current government’s mandate. We call on the federal parliament to act swiftly to enact and implement the National Leaders Forum-endorsed electoral model. The United States stands ready to assist the Somali people and government in this step on their path towards stable democratic governance.

Listen to how Damu-Jadid President Hassan lies publicly:-
This latest big shame is President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who is mentally challenged and confused by saying that Somalia became independence in 1991.
The Truth is Somalia gained independence .on 1st July, 1960.

Welcome to see even cheating publicly to world media personality is as easy as simply telling more lies.

Well, Mr. President Hassan, if you can not tell the correct date of Somalia’s Independence which was on 1st July, 1960, and we, the Somali people have already seen your Damu-Jadid leadership style for almost last 4 years without even making one single development for forming national forces, education and the political platforms to revive law and order then it is the best time to step down.

No more lies, the IMF, the World Bank and Other Internationally Reporting Agencies for Transparency and Corruptions have widely been reporting.

Well, it is true that you can not even visit Lasanid, Boorame, Berbera, Hargeisa and many other places in Somalia since you took up power for years ago until now so, it is the best best time to step down before we also air and televise more recorded video clips for last 3 and half years.

**Open Letter to Somali Community in UK**

By Abdirahman Omar Osman (Eng. Yarisow),

Mogadishu, 17 April 2016

My fellow Somalis in the United Kingdom, I am writing this letter to you [Somali Community in UK] with a view to encouraging and persuading you to unite all your efforts and to come out in full to support the campaign to ensure Britain remains part of the European Union.

I have joined the campaign to keep Britain Stronger in Europe from Mogadishu, 6934.66 km away from London. And I would like you to join the campaign too. My main worry is that if we Somalis in UK don?t understand the importance of our vote and don?t come out on the referendum day to vote, we may see a different result than what we want and what is in our interests. It is time that we all debate and fully understand the importance of this timely referendum. The last referendum in UK was in 1975, and at that time we didn?t have the opportunities that we now have, most of us in 1975 did not imagine that one day we would become UK Citizens and that we would be voting on a decision making process that will be vital for generations to come.

Please look at the Stronger-in website www.strongerin.co.uk to see more on the benefits of remaining in the EU. Please also share this link with your friends and family, and encourage them to join the campaign too. As you can see from this link UK will have better economy, better leadership and better security if it remains part of EU. The UK economy will be stronger, which in turn helps the growth of the economy by creating more jobs and delivering lower prices for our families in UK. According to statistics around 24 billion UK pounds of investment comes from Europe to UK. We Somalis in UK travel to Europe so frequently, therefore, that we will, for instance, be able to enjoy cheaper airline tickets and strengthen the connections among European Somali communities. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has also come out in public to strongly support the campaign to remain part of Europe and warn of the consequences for the global economy should Britain vote to leave Europe.

We Somalis in UK are better off being in Europe. As part of a strong, unified Europe, the UK is one of the leading nations around the globe; it is in all our best interests to be part of EU in order to maintain our position in the world. Britain will be safer as the security threats we face now are global meaning we need global solutions and partnerships working. Being part of Europe means more jobs and opportunities for our children as they enter the job market, after graduating from universities in UK. We Somalis in UK are the greatest beneficiaries amongst the various communities in UK, as our first generation are now completing their universities and are looking out for jobs.

As you are all aware the campaign has already begun in UK ahead of the referendum day on 23 June 2016. This is the day that people in UK  – all of us – will decide whether to be part of the European Union or not. I would remind you that Britain is part of Europe geographically and can no longer apply the isolationist views of past centuries. Secondly the UK Prime Minister, Rt Hon David Cameron MP has already negotiated a better deal with all EU member states? leaders and was given, exceptional, unique and secured special status deal that UK will still maintain its sovereignty in many ways, such as the military, immigration and so on. Therefore, I strongly believe that it is the interest of UK citizens to be part of the rest of Europe so that the European Union will be stronger, more efficient and fit for its purpose. Without UK, the EU will be dangerously weakened and unable to fulfil its roles and responsibilities effectively. With a weaker EU, UK will also be weaker even if as an isolated geographical neighbour. Europe needs the UK as much as the UK needs Europe.

The reason I am writing this letter to you is that I understand very well the importance of engaging with you, as I am a member of Somali Community in UK. When I was in UK I was one of Community Leaders there. I vividly remember on occasion 10 years ago, we knew that if we united and put aside the differences that plagued our homeland, then we would achieve a lot. As a result of our unity of purpose, we focussed and were effective in the political situation in our home country. After 8 years in Mogadishu helping the Somali government I am confident that our sacrifices were well worth it, as the country is now more stable and peaceful than in 10 years ago.  A lot of that was made possible by the assistance of the British government, as UK has played a significant part in these improvements.  It is now time for us to respond and support the country that has helped Somalia.  Therefore, I strongly encourage you all to realise our potential influence and unite in this campaign as it is in our interest and in the interest of our future generations in UK. A stronger EU will be good not only for UK but also for our beloved home country too.

Rt Hon David Cameron MP, UK Prime Minister and Rt Hon Jeremy Corbyn MP, the Labour Leader and the Leader of the Opposition are both campaigning in support of the remaining part of Europe. The issue, therefore, is not along political party lines, but rather a nationwide issue that affects all parties, all UK citizens and all citizens of the world. Jeremy Corbyn has warned there could be a “bonfire” of workers’ rights if the UK votes to leave the EU in June. UK Government believes that the UK will be stronger, safer and better off by remaining as a member of a reformed European Union.

I hope that I have managed to set the scene for you, I want to begin an active discussion with you all on how we can ensure that we all vote sensibly in our best interests on 23 June 2016 so that our voices are heard, very loudly and very clearly. I strongly urge you to stand up and unite for the sake of our future generations and work so incredibly hard to talk to your friends and family members to convince them to join the campaign.

This is no time for fear or worst, disinterest and disengagement ? constructive or otherwise.  It is a time to scale up and get involved.  If we don?t stand up for what we believe in, no one else will. The consequences of leaving Europe will be great. And they will be devastating. We must vote so we don?t have to regret the consequences of the outcome later. Please continue campaigning and make sure that we all vote on 23 of June 2016 so that Britain will remain a member of the reformed and more effective European Union.

#BreaakingNews: Latest Somali Public Polling Survey

Mogadishu on Sunday April 10, 2016 The Majority of Somali people 98.9% supports the Somali Traditional Elders to choose the Next Members of Parliament in August, 2016 while the Current Members of Parliament opposed the Somali Semi-autonomous States & its regional presidents to choose the Next Somali Members of Parliament which can and will be constitutional crisis.

So, if the Majority of Somali people 98.9% supported the Somali power-sharing formula, and the Current Members of Parliament supported the Somali power-sharing formula 4.5 then the possibility is and will be the Somali Traditional Elders can and must choose the Next Members of Parliament willy-nilly.

Truth is, there are several semi-autonomous states which did not comply with the mandatory requirement of the Federal Constitution, and every tribe which has no intention to run for Somali Presidency may and will like to use the Somali power-sharing clan formula 4.5. in order to get their seats legally without interference of the So-called Semi-autonomous states which did not comply with the mandatory requirement of the Federal Constitution.

Listen to him how he exposed what is going on in the Jail where he is waiting for the death penalty!

Unfortunately, his Shabab Commanders and leaders are free and some got durable resettlement in abroad so, is this a justice?

No one can hide the facts, and all Shabab terrorists must face justice!

Press Release
Mogadishu on Friday April 1, 2016 Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid Ali confirmed that Hiiran Region is one of the eight original regions of the Republic of Somalia therefore; Hiiran Region can be two regions as other regions in the country became different regions, and I welcome the desire of the People of Hiiraan region and their request because they have legitimate desire to become two regions.

I also advised to President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to help and recognize the desire of the Hiiran people as soon as possible, and I believe that he would consider what is the best for people in Hiiran regions.

I know that the people of Hiiran rejected bribes to accept the illegal interests of few organized Damu-Jadid Group, and it is the right to implement democracy without bribes and all forms of corruption in the country.

Well, I officially welcome Hiiraan State consisting Lower Hiiraan, Upper Hiiran and Shabelle which Beledweyne is the best capital of this forthcoming semi-autonomous state.

Somali National Post's photo.

Somalia’s Prominent Cartoonist Amin Arts exposed the truth of the Somali Ethiopia Spy-Master Farah Tobaz and his Ethiopian Spy-Master Commanding Officer General Gebra for their illegal and true face of derail Somalia’s stability and its daily affairs.

Well, it is true that Ex-Somali Minister of Justice MP. Hon. Farah Sheikh Abdikadir fired two previous Somali Prime Ministers H.E. Abdi Farah Shirdon “Said” and Prime Minister H.E. Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed who decided to stop his dirty and traitor’s style of politics in Somalia unfortunately, many of the Somali Current Members of Parliament misunderstood the illegal tactics of the Ex-Somali Minister of Justice MP. Hon. Farah Sheikh Abdikadir however; it is true that majority of the Somali people and the world at large know that he is not working for the common interests of the Somali people.

Well, the truth is, Ex-Somali Minister of Justice MP. Hon. Farah Sheikh Abdikadir suggested to the Somali President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to fire two previous Somali Prime Ministers H.E. Abdi Farah Shirdon “Said” and Prime Minister H.E. Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed.

Well, after firing two previous Somali Prime Ministers, it is very clear that the failing and escaping Damu-Jadid elements within the Somali Government are unable to fire or stop the Somali Current Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmake who was brought to Damu-Jadid by unknown and powerful political stakeholders in the Republic of Somalia.

Well, it is true that Damu-Jadid tried to control and limit the available financial resources to and at the Office of the Somali Prime Minister unfortunately, Somali Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid Ali gets funding for everything in so many ways.

Whether you believe it or now! We are asking for Somalis, who will be the next Somali President?

Is he coming from the side of the external key political stakeholders in Somalia? Or Are we going to use 4.5 Somali clan formula? Or Are semi-autonomous states able to select Members of the Somali Parliament who will choose the next Somali President?

It is true that Ethiopian Somali Spy-Masters, Ethiopian Spy-Masters and Foreign Spy-Masters in Somalia won’t bring political change in Somalia therefore’; it is the best time for Somali people to wake up and choose effective and honest leaders among Somali clans to lead Somalia otherwise: every country and NGO wants to derail Somalia in order to get free funds and steal resources without transparency and accountability.

Press Release

It is true that there are few political minority within the Somali Government which wants to re-use the Somali Power-Sharing clan formula 4.5 that is illegal to the Somali people as it exists because every Somali clan has and living in districts and regions in the Republic of Somalia.

Monday March 7, 2016

As many as 100 members of the al-Shabab terrorist group were killed by U.S. airstrikes in Somalia overnight Sunday, senior defense officials told NBC News.

The officials said unmanned American drones dropped bombs and launched Hellfire missiles in the devastating air assault on a large gathering of the militants.

It appeared “the group was in formation” conducting “some kind of ceremony” when the airstrikes were launched, one official said.

It’s not clear whether any senior al-Shabab leaders were killed in the strikes, and no other information was immediately available.

Al-Shabab has been responsible for terrorist attacks throughout East Africa, including the massacre of 67 civilians during a four-day siege at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya in September 2013.

Similar U.S. airstrikes in the region have been previously launched from an American airbase in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa.

Unfortunately, the Somali leaders and the entire cabinet failed to lead Somalia after leaders became traveling entourage to attend external conferences where they are putting and setting up baits to swindle financial funds from fraternal nations as reported local and international media outlets as well as the United Nations Monitoring Group on Somalia and Eritrea and the Transparency International.
Shabab terrorists regained strength to blast and harm both civilian soft and government targets in Mogadishu where security lapse has been increasing since many foreign spy agents and Somali Intelligence Ranking Officers are working with Shabab terrorists in so many ways.
So, the New Somali Security Plan is like  saliva diplomacy which you can either spill out or swallow it because if the Current Leaders are breaking the Somali Federal Constitution then who can believe them whatever they say?
The question is how many Shabab terrorists are working within the Somali Government as well as in the Somali National Intelligence and Security Agency

28 FEBRUARY 2016
DJIBOUTI
 
DJIBOUTI DECLARATION
 
The Heads of State and Government of the Troop and Police Contributing Countries (T/PCCs) to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) met in Djibouti on 28 February 2016, to discuss the political and security situation in Somalia. A preparatory meeting at Ministerial level of T/PCCs held on 27 February 2016, at the Palais du Peuple in Djibouti, preceded this Summit.
 
The Summit was chaired by His Excellency Ismail Omar Guelleh, President of the Republic of Djibouti and was attended by the following Heads of State and Government: His Excellency Hailemariam Desalegn, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia; His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya and, His Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, President of the Federal Republic of Somalia. His Excellency Alain Aime Nyamitwe, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and His Excellency Emmanuel Ntahomvukiye Minister of National Defence represented the Republic of Burundi; His Excellency Mansur Mohammed Dan Ali, Minister of Defence represented the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and His Excellency (Hon) General Jeje Odongo, Minister of State for Defence and His Excellency (Hon) Philmon Mateke Minister of State for Regional Cooperation represented the Republic of Uganda. His Excellency, Ambassador Smail Chergui, African Union (AU) Commissioner for Peace and Security and His Excellency, Ambassador Francisco Madeira, Special Representative of the Chairperson of the Commission (SRCC) and Head of AMISOM, represented the AU Commission.
 
After considering the Conclusions of the preparatory meeting at Ministerial level, the Summit:
 
Notes the commitments made by the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) towards an inclusive electoral process within the constitutional mandated timeline of 2016, especially the efforts made in reaching a consensus agreement on a model for the 2016 elections and stresses the need for the Government to build on this important foundation, in order to fully achieve an inclusive and credible electoral outcome, representative of all Federal Member States. In this respect, welcomes the efforts made by IGAD in its establishment of a Ministerial team to support the FGS engagement with Puntland in order to ensure the smooth and timely implementation of the agreed electoral model.
 
Strongly condemns the recent attacks perpetuated by Al Shaabab in Mogadishu, Leggo, Janaale, and El Adde and, the continued asymmetrical warfare by this terrorist group against the FGS, the Interim Regional Administrations, Somalia security institutions, AMISOM, the UN and the civilian population and urges all relevant stakeholders especially the international community to intensify efforts in support of AMISOM and Somali National Security Forces (SNSF) operations to significantly degrade the growing threats posed by Al Shabaab.
 
Welcomes the efforts made by the AU Commission and other stakeholders in the re-vitalisation of AMISOM operations and endorses the outcomes of the 17th meeting of the Military Operations Coordination Committee (MOCC) of 8 February 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya as well as the meeting of the AU Commissioner for Peace and Security with external partners, held in Addis Ababa on 18 February 2016, which discussed enhanced support to AMISOM and SNSF and exchanged views on the areas of support, including bilateral assistance to Somalia, in order to promote resource optimisation, greater coordination and avoid duplication of efforts.
 
Stresses the need for effective AMISOM Command and Control in order to achieve synergy of the Mission’s efforts against Al Shaabab and therefore directs AMISOM contingents to fully support the Force Commander in his exercise of effective and accountable command of all Military units and equipment assigned to the Mission, under the overall leadership of the Special Representative of the Chairperson of the AU Commission and AMISOM Head of Mission. In addition, the Summit emphasises the need for better coordination of operations and logistics through the establishment of enhanced mechanisms and structures, as appropriate, between AMISOM, SNSF and UNSOS. Furthermore, calls for the provision of technical experts to be embedded within SNSF structures for the purposes of mentoring and capacity building.
 
Directs full and urgent deployment in all AMISOM Sectors of operations especially in the Gedo region in order to enhance the efficiency of AMISOM operations and consolidate security gains across Somalia.
 
Recalls the recommendations of the 2015 Joint AU-UN Benchmarking Mission on Somalia relating to a gradual shift to policing, including to strengthen the rule of law, at the right time and the subsequent 2015 CONOPs, which calls for an imminent draw-down of AMISOM military strength to allow for an increase in AMISOM policing activities and based on the current security assessment in Somalia decides for an immediate suspension of the implementation of this recommendation and further directs the AU Commission with other relevant stakeholders to undertake a comprehensive review of AMISOM mandate and CONOPs.
 
Notes with serious concern the decision by the EU to reduce financial support to AMISOM troop allowance by 20% especially during this critical phase of AMISOM operations and decides to call upon the UN to utilize assessed contributions to bridge this financial gap either through the UNSOS logistical support package or directly to the AU within the framework of Chapter VIII of the UN Charter and relevant constituent instruments, bearing in mind that AMISOM is acting on behalf of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), whose primary responsibility is the promotion of international peace and security. The Summit further reiterates the earlier AU position that the UN fully support AMISOM at levels commensurate with similar UN peace enforcement missions or consider timely modalities for a transition from AMISOM to a UN mission failing which, the AU would have to reconsider the AMISOM mission.
 
Emphasises the need to undertake a review of immediate requirements for AMISOM and SNSF operational effectiveness with a view to implementing remedial actions aimed at improving offensive operations against Al Shaabab and directs UNSOS to provide the identified support requirements as agreed with AMISOM and SNSF leadership.
 
Underscores the critical importance of enhanced support to AMISOM and specifically re-iterates the need for the generation and deployment of operational enablers and force multipliers, including pledged helicopters from Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda and, therefore requests the UN to expedite the finalisation of Letters of Assist in order to allow for their deployment as Mission assets, taking due consideration of the high-intensity nature of AMISOM operations. In addition, the AU Commission should report back to the Summit on the progress made in the authorisation and deployment of these Mission assets, not later than 30 days from the adoption of this Declaration.
 
Commends all T/PCCs and other AU Member States for their various contributions to AMISOM operations and encourages other international partners to contribute and deploy air assets in order to facilitate AMISOM operations.
 
Requests FGS, AMISOM, T/PCCs and relevant partners to enhance coordination especially in information sharing and communications as part of efforts to revitalise offensive operations in Somalia against Al Shaabab.
 
Reiterates the critical importance of a viable and strong SNSF to the success of AMISOM and therefore calls upon all relevant stakeholders to redouble support to the SNSF through timely, enhanced and better coordinated training and, through the provision of appropriate infrastructure, equipment and ammunition and further calls upon the FGS, the UN and other international partners, to renew their commitments to the effective implementation of the Gulwaade Plan, including through the expansion of UN support beyond the authorised strength of 10,900 SNA personnel, in strict conformity with the relevant provisions of International Humanitarian Law and in full compliance with the UN Human Rights Due Diligence Policy.
 
Recognises the importance of the effective implementation of stabilisation efforts in liberated areas through improved local governance by the FGS with the support of the International Community, establishment of social infrastructure including through Quick Impact Projects (QIPs) and by encouraging procurement of local commodities by UNSOS and AMISOM in order to promote local economies as part of efforts towards winning the hearts and minds of local communities.
 
Requests for concerted efforts by AU Commission and the International community to identify and disable channels utilised to finance Al Shabaab and other terrorist groups and the recruitment and training of foreign fighters in Somalia.
 
Takes note of IGAD Regional Security Cooperation Framework, agreed by the following IGAD Member States namely, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Uganda, in addressing regional security issues and further encourages IGAD to continue its efforts in support of the AU to stabilise Somalia in the promotion of the security of the region.
 
Commends the continued efforts and sacrifices of AMISOM and SNSF personnel in the fight against Al Shaabab and expresses appreciation to the AU Commission as well as to international partners and organisations that are currently providing financial, material and technical assistance to AMISOM and Somalia.
 
Expresses appreciation to the Government of Djibouti for hosting the meeting, for the hospitality accorded and all the arrangements made for the smooth conduct of the meeting.

COMMUNIQUE
Ministerial High‐Level Partnership Forum
Istanbul 23‐24 February 2016

1. Representatives from 46 countries and 11 international organisations gathered in Istanbul on 23
and 24 February 2016 to participate in the third Ministerial High‐Level Partnership Forum (HLPF),
hosted by H.E. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of the Republic of Turkey and co‐chaired by H.E.
Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, President of the Federal Republic of Somalia and H.E. Mr. Jan Eliasson,
Deputy‐Secretary General of the United Nations. This forum follows previous meetings held in
Copenhagen in 2014 and Mogadishu in 2015.

2. Two official side events, one on Women, Peace, and Security and the other on Youth were also held
during the HLPF.

3. We welcome the second annual progress report of the New Deal Somali Compact and commend the
detailed Compact Review process, which has resulted in greater joint analysis of achievements and
challenges faced in implementation, as well as identification of milestones for 2016. This report
accurately acknowledges that despite many challenges, remarkable progress has been achieved in
many areas of Somalia’s peace and state‐building agenda and reaffirms our continued engagement
and provision of assistance.

4. With the end of the constitutionally‐mandated terms of the Federal Government and Parliament,
2016 is a decisive year for Somalia. We recognise that one‐person one‐vote elections will not be
possible this year, but welcome the inclusive and participatory process that led to agreement on key
principles and actions of the 2016 electoral process in the ‘Mogadishu Declaration’ of 16 December
2015. In line with the Guiding Principles and the Mogadishu Declaration, we commit to undertake
all efforts to deliver an electoral process in August 2016. We underline our strong expectation that
there must not be any impediments to the timely implementation of the electoral process, including
freedom of expression, nor any extension of the constitutionally‐mandated term limits of the
legislature and executive. We urge the completion of the 2016 Electoral Process Implementation
Plan and the development of the 2020 Roadmap in an inclusive and participatory manner.

5. We note the absence of Puntland from this Forum, and urge the Federal Government and regional
authorities to make every effort to ensure that the government and people of Puntland are fully on
board in order to allow for the 2016 electoral process to be as inclusive as possible.

6. We affirm that pursuing universal suffrage in 2020 is required. We recognise the need to overcome
the existing power‐sharing formula, in accordance with the strong desire of the Somali people. We
stress the importance of a clear political vision and path and agree to consolidate twin‐track
planning in support of one‐person one‐vote elections supported by a capable National Independent
Electoral Commission by 2020. The international community stands ready to support these
processes.

7. We underline the need to complete the state formation process in Hiraan and Middle Shabelle and
reach agreement on clarification of the status of Mogadishu.

8. Noting that Somalia’s Federal Constitution will be the foundation for stability and peaceful politics
in Somalia, we urge the swift completion of the review of the priority chapters of the Provisional
Federal Constitution. We welcome the agreement among federal leaders and mandated federal
institutions on priority political issues that require immediate response in 2016. We urge the
Federal Government to engage the emerging and federal member states in the constitutional
review and implementation process and conduct nationwide consultations with Somali people
across all federal and emerging member states, including through civic education and outreach to
ensure broad‐based consensus and Somali ownership.

9. We acknowledge that progress has been made to achieve greater peace and security across
Somalia, but remain concerned that the security environment at present is an inhibiting factor for
development of both governing institutions and the Somali population and remains a root cause for
the significant humanitarian assistance requirements in Somalia.

10. We commend the valiant efforts by AMISOM and the SNA in the fight against al‐Shabaab. We
express special appreciation to all AMISOM Troop and Police Contributing countries (Burundi,
Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda), as well as partners for their contribution
and continued commitment to the Mission. We urge the need for reinvigorated AMISOM and SNA
operations, and that efforts be made for the SNA to assume operational strength in forward bases
supported by AMISOM. Operations must be conducted in compliance with international
humanitarian law and human rights and take into account the need to create the necessary
conditions for stabilization of recovered areas, recognizing the role to be played by different actors,
including those within the police, justice, and corrections sector. We look forward to the outcome
of the forthcoming Troop Contributing Countries (TCC) Summit in Djibouti in February 2016. We call
upon all partners to continue to bridge the gap between the operational needs and available
resources in order to guarantee predictable, flexible, and sustainable resources.

11. We recognise the efforts made to provide support to strengthen the capacity and accountability of
Somali security institutions across the country and welcome the commitment by the Federal
Government and international partners to develop, before May 2016, financially sustainable plans
for the army (Gulwaade) and police (Heegan) under a national security architecture and informed
by the Public Expenditure Review conducted by the World Bank and the UN. We welcome the
decision that the National Security Council will include regional representation at the highest level.
We commend efforts to complete a National Threat Assessment and to ensure the National Security
Policy is fully agreed and endorsed before May 2016.

12. We also recognise the opportunity and need to provide support to the police forces of emerging
and federal members States to ensure safety and security.

13. We note that international support to the Somali security sector remains essential and must be
provided with increased transparency and full integration and alignment with the financially
sustainable plans developed by the Federal Government. We welcome the commitment to focus on
national force integration and the President’s commitments on security sector reform including
expenditures together with enhanced monitoring systems and urge that the mechanism supports
regular and timely payments. We welcome the commitment from international partners to provide
stipends in a timely and consistent manner.

14. We recognise rule of law is an integral part of security, stability and extension of state authority and
jointly commit to improve provision of basic services across the justice chain of police, justice, and
corrections. We also urge that key justice institutions such as the Constitutional Court, Independent
Human Rights Commission and the Judicial Service Commission be established in 2016.

15. We recognize the importance of a comprehensive approach to preventing violent extremism in
Somalia, beyond military operations and including addressing the root causes of radicalization and
pledge to work together to address these factors. We reaffirm that counter‐terrorism efforts should
be conducted in full respect of human rights and welcome the adoption the Counter‐Terrorism Bill.

16. We emphasize that a comprehensive approach for the extension of state authority is required so
that local administrations have the capacity to deliver basic services to their constituencies.

17. We are concerned that 4.7 million people in Somalia are food insecure and in need of urgent and
sustained humanitarian support. 3.2 million people are in need of emergency health services, nearly
1 million face daily food security crisis, more than 300,000 children under the age of 5 are acutely
malnourished – 58,300 of them severely. The needs of 1.1 million internally displaced people are
particularly great. We are particularly concerned with the recent onset of drought in large areas
across Somalia, and reaffirm the need for attention to disaster management and early warning and
response systems. We recognise durable solutions are required to address persistent natural and
man‐made shocks and vulnerabilities. We reconfirm our commitment to the 2016 Humanitarian
Response plan. We welcome efforts to provide a solutions perspective for IDPs, and urge
international and national partners to provide necessary support to strategically bridge
humanitarian and development objectives.

18. We underline the vital role of education, health, social protection, and other core social services in
supporting the Somali people. Whilst recognizing the substantial progress made in 2015 to extend
social services to disadvantaged populations, the international community and government commit
to prioritize greater financial and human resource investments in social services. In this regard, we
welcome the joint commitment to improve public delivery of education and health services through
key legislation & policies (e.g. national curricula, health strategy, social protection policy), capacity
building, and effective public management and payment systems for teachers and health workers.

19. We underline the need to develop key economic sectors that will provide all Somalis with greater
opportunities for sustainable livelihoods, and stress the need for responsible and transparent
management of all productive and natural resources as the primary drivers of inclusive economic
growth.

20. We acknowledge the Federal Government’s commitment to enact reforms and draft legislation to
strengthen key sectors (energy, infrastructure, ports, ICT, agriculture, livestock, and fisheries),
including through private public partnership, and welcome the international community’s efforts to
expand support for high priority economic sectors and youth employment, including through
vocational training. We encourage support for regional economic initiatives, especially for
infrastructure development, as they will be essential for regional economic growth and cooperation.

21. We recognize the need for a comprehensive approach to equipping Somali youth with tools that will
enable them to play a positive role in bringing peace, social and economic prosperity to Somalia. In
that regard, in line with the Security Council Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security, we
welcome development of the National Youth Policy and the UN Youth Strategy for Somalia, as well
as the creation of the Somali Youth Fund through the National Window.

22. We underscore the vital contribution of women to the economic, political and social life of Somalia.
We welcome the Federal Government’s decision to ensure 30% of seats for women in the 2016
elections and South West States’ allocation of 21% of seats for women in the Regional Assembly.
We urge the Somali leadership to translate these commitments into reality in August 2016. We
appreciate that formulation of the National Gender Policy has commenced, welcome the drafting of
the Sexual Offences Bill and urge the swift completion and approval of them. We urge the
Government to ratify the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW)
in order to ensure measures are put in place to systematically eliminate discriminatory laws and
practices and promote equality of women.

23. We appreciate the active and successful participation of Somalia in the recently concluded Universal
Periodic Review (UPR) process before the UN Human Rights Council. We congratulate Somalia on its
ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on 1 October 2015, and urge the signing of
its Optional Protocols.

24. We strongly recommend that momentum be sustained and commitments implemented,
particularly with regards to implementation of the Action Plan on the Human Rights Roadmap, the
establishment of the Independent Human Rights Commission in line with the Paris Principles, and
enhanced compliance by the security forces with international human rights and humanitarian law.
We urge the international community to focus their support on the human rights priorities
identified, particularly in the Human Rights Roadmap and to support capacity building of the
Ministry of Women and Human Rights to implement these priorities.

25. 2016 marks the final year of the Somali Compact. The Compact has played a crucial role in
improving the partnership and mutual accountability between the government and international
community and furthering political, security and development progress in Somalia. We look forward
to developing the next phase of international engagement in Somalia based on a shared set of
principles and a renewal of the joint partnership.

26. We commit to taking concrete steps to improve and accelerate aid delivery consistent with agreed
partnership principles and to align programs and resources with Somalia’s national priorities, as a
means of improving aid effectiveness.

27. We welcome the progress made on the preparation of a three‐year National Development Plan
(2017‐19), and national consultations held to ensure that the NDP truly reflects the priorities and
needs of the Somali people. We commit to support the formulation of an NDP which provides
commitments from the government to the Somali people to create an enabling environment for
political and security progress, poverty reduction and inclusive development, and provides the
framework for international engagement in Somalia. The NDP will be aligned with the Sustainable
Development Goals, and will be IPRSP (Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper) compliant.

28. We congratulate the Federal Government on its progress to improve the management of Somalia’s
public finances and urge further efforts to mobilise and diversify its domestic revenue. We welcome
the political agreement between federal and state Ministries of Finance to work towards
harmonized taxes, tariffs and audit functions across the country; use of compatible and interfaced
Financial Management Information Systems (FMIS); and adopt a single monetary policy and
currency note. We urge the government to commit to the full implementation of these mechanisms
to help build Somalia’s fiscal management systems. We also welcome the government’s
commitment to develop a nationally‐agreed regulatory framework for revenue sharing and
sustainable natural resource management.

29. We recognize the significance of Somalia’s first Article IV consultation by the International
Monetary Fund (IMF) in 25 years. We commend the Federal Government’s continued commitment
to financial and economic governance reform to establish the foundations for full re‐engagement of
International Financial Institutions (IFIs) in Somalia within the framework of HIPC to allow Somalia
to access concessional financing to achieve its development objectives. We encourage institution of
an IMF‐Staff‐Monitored Programme.

30. We emphasize that the Financial Governance Committee (FGC) plays an important role in assisting
the government and the international community strengthen governance of Somalia’s public
financial institutions. We strongly encourage the continuation of the FGC’s work in order to sustain
and build upon the gains that have been made.

31. We recommit to the Use of Country Systems (UCS) roadmap, outlining mutual commitments by
development partners and government to use and strengthen country systems commensurate with
progress on fiscal reform. We commit to more solid, harmonized and transparent public financial
management systems to manage fiduciary risks, and that use of country systems can lead to greater
aid effectiveness.

32. In conclusion, we thank all participants for their constructive engagement, and commit to working
together on implementation of our agreed actions in 2016, to make this year a milestone and
historic year for Somalia.

33. We would like to extend our gratitude to the people and government of Turkey for their warm
welcome and hospitality during the Forum and commend Turkey’s broad engagement in the
development and reconstruction of Somalia.

Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid confirmed that Damu-Jadid Group failed to lead Somalia, and he confirmed what Kenya has done to his delegation at Jomo Kenyatta.
The Prove of Somali Leaders such President, Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister all leaving the country – Somalia attending the Turkish Somali Sponsored in Istanbul, Turkey while the Somali Speaker of Parliament H.E. Prof. Mohamed Sheikh Osman traveled to Cairo, Egypt.
 
The truth is that Somali leaders do not trust each other, and they are gatecrash conference in abroad for looking ways to handle and divert funds and foreign aid to Somalia into private and personal reasons.
 
by the way, the truth is also, there are no organized and invited youth in regard to 4.5 Somali Clan formula which the Somali Government based on for power-sharing whether we like it or not therefore; Somali leaders are gambling chameleons.

Kenya has been sucked into a tussle for airspace management between Somalia and a UN agency after it turned out that staff working there have no requisite papers.

The claims emerged early this month when Somalia demanded the closure of a centre operated by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (Icao) in Nairobi, which was launched under a special deal between the agency and Mogadishu.

Somalia argues that though the centre was sanctioned by its government, Icao breached the arrangement by employing 47 Somalis who entered Kenya on student passes, hence cannot be given employment contracts.

“For the last 20 years, Icao has been managing Somali airspace out of a small office in Gigiri. During those years, it has been exploiting Somali employees by bringing them to Kenya under student visas, which is illegal under Kenyan law,” Mr Gamal Hassan, Somalia’s ambassador to Kenya told the Daily Nation.

“We want this office closed and Somalis brought to Kenya illegally to return to their country.”

Somalia has protested the inability by its citizens to get leave or take their families to Nairobi.

Because they have worked in Nairobi using student visas since the 1990s, their bubble could burst if they attempted to leave the country and return.

It also raises the question of how foreigners can work in Kenya illegally for more than 20 years.

The Department of Immigration is charged with issuing work permits to foreigners, including those working for international organisations.

AGENCY ACCUSED
On Sunday, Immigration boss Gordon Kihalangwa told the Nation that his office had been approached by Icao to issue student visas to nine Somali staff at the centre to train in aeronautical engineering.

“These people are technically working but as with the norm with international organisations, we have given them some exemptions because they are on internship,” said Mr Kihalangwa.

“They are in the country legally and we have received assurances that they will leave on completion of their internship.”

He added that the nine renewed their passes on January 29.

International organisations hiring foreign staff are supposed to declare them to authorities.

Somalia says Icao has not been submitting full details to the Kenyan government and charges that some officials were given wrong passes.

“Ultimately, this is a sovereignty issue and Icao has failed to honour its commitment to eventually allow Somalia to take control of its airspace,” added Mr Hassan, accusing the agency of not remitting funds it collected from commercial jetliners.

Known as the Flight Information Service of Somalia, the centre manages the Somali airspace in an agreement that has been extended three times since 1994.

ICAO said the Nairobi centre was hosting 47 Somali staff with an understanding with the Kenyan government that they will be moved to Somalia.

“The arrangement for the Somali personnel to stay in Nairobi serving the project has been established by the Kenyan Government in order to allow them to work in the FISS while they wait for the transfer of the services to Mogadishu,” said Anthony Philbin, the Chief of Communications in the office of the Secretary General of ICAO.

The UN agency further clarified that all the fees it collected has been used to run the project and implement the transition plan of helping Somalia establish its aviation management centres.

Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid Ali said clearly that President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud took up hastened decision to order checking Members of Parliament and Cabinet Members at the Aden Adde International Airport.

#BreakingNews: Mogadishu on Thursday February 11, 2016 Several mortars landed at Halane base in #Mogadishu where #AMISOM stationed, & #Shabab terrorists have claimed it what’s up?
No more hiding the facts and information so, where are Shabab terrorists firing mortars within Mogadishu City?
 
Where are the Somali Security Forces to stop such frequent Shababa terrorists’s attacks in the Capital City?
 
Time to stop Shabab terrorists in Mogadishu City or, it is better all Somali Security Agencies to work together and find Shabab terrorists before they fire mortars into civilian and military bases including the Somali Statehouse which is locally known as Villa Somalia that they have been targeting for many times before.

Please, do not cry whether you like it or no, President His Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud is the current President of the Republic of Somalia, and the international community know and support him so, how long can you lie Somaliland people from your own tribe?

It is true that you, Mr. Waran Adde, you were part of the collapsed criminal and dictatorial military regime led by late President H.E. Major-General Mohamed Said Barre so, if someone should face the law then you and many people who worked with the ex- Somali Military Regime must face the law including the current President of the Somaliland Administration.

#Jubbaland State President H.E. Ahmed Mohamed Islam exposed the endless lies of the International Community and how the Somali Federal Government failed to reach compromise in order to hold free and fair elections in 2016.

A big shame to the International Community failures in Somalia as they tried to stern around illegally therefore; it is very shameful for the international community to lie publicly giving bogus press conferences in Mogadishu City and at the UN Headquarter in New York.

Listen to the #Jubbaland State President H.E. Ahmed Mohamed Islam speaking to the Jubbaland State people for sharing the truth of Mogadishu Conference and its failure which was spearheaded by the International Community and Somali Federal Government.

Press Release

Mogadishu on Wednesday January 27, 2016 #Jubbaland State President H.E. Sheikh Ahmed Mohamed Islam has officially withdrawn from the Somali government sponsored conference in Mogadishu City after the Somali Federal Government failed to implement general elections based on democratic voting systems which is one man one vote.

Unfortunately, after 3 and half years, a majority of the Somali people wants to hold general elections in 2016 as the Current Somali Federal Constitution stated, however; Somalia’s Current President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamed and his minority Damu-Jadid criminally organized Group are now unable to even secure and save people in Mogadishu City where Shabab terrorists are attacking in key government sites.

On behalf of the People and the Government of Jubbaland State, we are not ready to derail Somalia’s future therefore; we withdrew from this failed conference in Mogadishu City which the Somali Federal President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and the foreign entities have the responsibility of its political failure.

I also thank to the Somali people who heard and supported the formation of #Jubbaland State, and we are very glad to work with them.

Best Regard,

Somalia: UN condemns deadly Al-Shabaab attacks against civilian targets in Mogadishu

22 January 2016 – The United Nations Security Council condemned in the strongest terms today’s attack in Mogadishu perpetrated by Al-Shabaab, “which has resulted in a number of deaths and injuries of innocent civilians going about their daily lives.”

In a press statement, the members of the Security Council expressed their deep sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the people and Government of Somalia. They wished a speedy recovery to those injured in the attack, which, according to media reports, left more than a dozen people dead at a popular beachside restaurant in the Somali capital.

The Council also paid tribute to the response of the Somali security forces to these attacks, and underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organisers, financiers and sponsors of such reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice.

In addition, the Council stressed that those responsible for these killings should be held accountable, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with all relevant authorities in this regard.

Stressing the need to take measures to prevent and suppress the financing of Al-Shabaab, and any other terrorist group in Somalia, the Council also underscored its solidarity with the people and Government of Somalia at this difficult time.

Council members reiterated their determination that no terrorist attack shall dampen the 15-member body’s resolve to bring the peace and stability to Somalia that its people deserve, and look forward to elections in 2016 which will help reinforce the path towards stability.

In a separate statement, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General also condemned in the strongest possible terms the attacks, which were also perpetrated against a wedding party and a graduation celebration.

“Such outrageous actions must not undermine efforts to restore peace and stability to Somalia,” stressed Michael Keating.

A spokesperson for the Al-Shabaab group claimed responsibility for the barbaric attack that killed at least 20 people – that encompassed a pregnant mother and a small child.

“This latest atrocity by Al-Shabaab is very deliberately intended to intimidate Somali civilians,” said SRSG Keating. “We will do everything possible to ensure that al-Shabaab does not succeed in its desperate attempts to frustrate the hopes of the Somali people.”

On behalf of the entire United Nations family in Somalia, Mr. Keating extended his deepest condolences to the families who lost loved ones in the attack.


Press ReleaseMogadishu on Monday January 18, 2016 Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid Ali confirmed that the Somali Conference between Somali Government and the Somali Semi-autonomous states had failed to bring effective solutions to end Somalia’s internal crisis which mostly based on tribal politics, and such political failure is the responsible of the Somali Federal President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who violated the Somali Federal Constitution so many times and so many ways as I have already stated publicly.

Mogadishu City News's photo.

I think that we, the Current Leaders of the Somali Federal Government failed to restore law and order, and we could not establish holding general election as one man one voting democratic system therefore; it is illegal to seek tenure extension for 2 more years while you have already failed to accomplish for last 3 and half years.

Well, it is clearly that the biggest and federally complied semi-autonomous states wants to base on general elections in regard to the 18 regions or districts unfortunately, Somali President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamed and his small Damu-Jadid Group wants to use and force people the current Somali clan power-sharing formula which is 4.5, and it is based on legal facts.

I do not accept 4.5 Somali clan formula, and I encourage the Somali Members of Parliament and the Somali Parliament to carry out urgency transparency and accountability because it is very true and clear that President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud made endless corruptions for national treasuries, justice and fiduciary systems where even the Somali Central Bank is no longer a bank but a bait to divert and cover up the illegal activities of the small Damu-Jadid whose mission is to destroy or rule Somalia under scary activities relating terrorism and wrongful smuggling of weapons to further deteriorate current crisis in the Federal Republic of Somalia.

Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmake confirmed that cutting ties with Iran basing and getting for money and other exchange was not good but it is party of the Somali Diplomatic Crisis which President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Moihamed and his Damu-Jadid started without consulting with the Members of the Somali Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Affairs and the Somali Cabinet in general which I lead.

Surely, we could stop Iran spreading Shia activities simply but was it worth to expel a country which has opened its embassy in Mogadishu in favor of another country which has no embassy in Mogadishu City? Well, Money sometimes works and it can however change to recover making Somalia as one of the Diplomatic Crisis in the history between Somalia and Iran.

Well, I would like to suggest President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to step down and seek forgiveness from the Somali people as well as returning stolen public funds and treasuries otherwise; it is up to the Somali Federal parliament to renew the late political motion which I relieved from you in order to stay in power.

Yes, I and President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamuid failed to lead Somalia into right path for one man and one vote per person to choose the next Somali Members of Parliament who will elect President, approve his choose Prime Minister and Cabinet.

I, the Current Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid thank to ex- Somali Presidents, Prime Minister and Somali Government personnel who rejected to comply with Damu-Jadid scary tactics and political derailment.

Well, I want tell every Somali that the ex- resigned Somali Central Bank Governor Yusra Abrar made bold step to expose and stop Damu-Jadid curiosity to swindle and steal Somalia’s frozen assets in abroad, and she made the right decision to save Somalia for further internal crisis because if Damu-Jadid Group could even access such frozen assets then they would have planned to use it in so many ways as they are currently operating under the radar of the Somali people and the international community.

I also thanked to the European Union and other international organizations for further monitoring the endless corruptions and crimes in the Federal Republic of Somalia where top leader thinks that they can be above the law which they were election accordingly.

Well, my conclusion to the President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, please step down now! No more lies for seeking tenure extension for the Somali Presidency which you have completely failed to lead the last 3 and half years!

Best Regards,

Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid Ali

NUSOJ Press Release on Mogadishu Tuesday December 29, 2015
The National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) is alarmed about today’s attempt to assassinate its Secretary General, Omar Faruk Osman, as he was entering the union’s headquarters in Mogadishu.At around 14hrs, Omar Faruk Osman was coming back from city centre and his vehicle was standing at the gate of NUSOJ headquarters, waiting the gate to be opened, when a white sedan with three armed men sprayed Omar’s vehicle with bullets. Omar’s Bodyguards exchanged fire with assailants, until attackers were overpowered and run away from the scene. One of Omar’s bodyguards and two other pedestrians at Taleex Street were seriously wounded in this attack.”This is a vicious and cowardly murder attempt against our Secretary General Omar Faruk Osman. It is clearly aimed at intimidating this union, and it was only by good fortune that Omar Faruk escaped death,” said Abdirisak Omar Ismail, President of NUSOJ Supreme Council.NUSOJ categorically states that it will not bow to the intimidations and dangers posed to its leadership, and shall remain defiant in executing its mandate without fear, speaking out against suppressive actions and policies against journalists and media community.”It is an outrage that people must risk their lives simply to represent the interests of journalists. If the Somali Government is serious about bringing peace and prosperity to Somalia it must swiftly identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice,” added Ismail. “We do not need empty promises anymore”.We are really shocked to know that the Somali Government wants to shut down freedom of expression bringing one of the most worse media law in the whole world thus, they are determined to carry out cover up operations to harass or assassinate people who talk the reality of internal and external corruptions.Wake up Somalis!It is the truth that the Somali Government can not tell what is going on in Halane AMISOM Headquarters where foreign mercenary troops, firms and unknown operations are going on while the Somali Government is targeting people who reports the facts pf internal and external corruptions funded by foreign government.Well, if you are harassing or killing journalists and their leadership in Somalia then we can confirm you that we are determined to expose the facts, and we will take you to the courts of law.The Union of Somali National Journalists (NUSOJ) wants the Somali High Court, Attorney-General and Members of Parliament to launch investigations why some politicians within the Somali Government wants to harass or kill innocent journalists whenever they report the facts and their corruptions,Remember that!Best Wishes,
The Honorary Chairman of the Union of Somali National Journalists.

Water Boarding Somalia

Adv. Abdulqadir Tallman

SNTV News Live's photo.

Somalis say to the international community: either measure up to the task of defeating Al-Shabaab, or leave the Somali people to their own devices. What is happening now is nothing but slow torture. Many of us Somalis feel the international community is entertaining Kenya and Ethiopia, who are happy to watch Somalis stew in their own juices.

Once Somalis realize that this is all about keeping them down for the benefit of Kenya and Ethiopia, they (Somalis) will come up with an appropriate response. And already, there are signs that such a realization is taking place.

http://www.hiiraan.com/news4/2015/oct/101864/doodwadaag_xildhibaan_maxamed_yuusuf_iyo_xildhibaan_maxamed_cabdi_xaashi.aspx

Two of the most senior Somali parliamentarians declare: Somalia is not free.Somalia is not independent. Somalia is under Kenyan-Ethiopian rule, with the connivance of the international community.

Somalis, do not see Al-Shabaab as the worst enemy. They know the deadly enemy is Ethiopia. They know the enemy is Kenya. And they understand these two poor African countries cannot even dream of enslaving Somalia, without the West’s collusion.

Somalis are now beginning to question whether the war on Al-Shabaab isn’t just a diversionary homework for Somalis.

Kenya, Ethiopia and the American-led international community want us Somalis to be obsessed and engaged with Al-Shabaab, while gradually putting Somalia under the neighbouring countries.

If the world is serious about fighting Al-Shabaab, it would put two-hundred thousand troops in Somalia to do the job in a few months. Then a strong government with a strong army would be put in place.

Another option, suggested by an old American expert on Somalia would be: to “disarm the militants in Somalia by ‘buying the boys’ out of the Movement. Trade their guns for stipends to support further schooling in the trades, pay for their home costs, their wives and children, and finally make available a mental health program for all Somalis (boys, men, women, girls, and all other victims of war). PTSD is the biggest impediment to a return to normality. Address it aggressively. Otherwise, it’s all a horrific never-ending drama with no conclusion”, designed to keep Somalia between life and death.

The solutions are not that complicated. However, the international community is not interested in solutions to the Somali problem. On the contrary.

If that wasn’t the case, Kenyan and Ethiopian would never have been allowed to bring their troops into Somalia for peace-keeping. Specuially with the existence of a UN Resolution banning the deployment to Somalia of forces from the neighbouring countries: http://www.un.org/press/en/2006/sc8887.doc.htm#main-content.

That is why I am calling for the withdrawal from Somalia of troops from both Kenya and Ethiopia. Bring Egyptian, Moroccan, Algerian, Indian, Chinese, American, Nepalese, Brazilian, Australian troops. In short, bring troops from every country in the world, with the exception of Kenya and Ethiopia. Is that too much to ask?

The ‘international community’ needs to ask itself: where do the Al-Shabaab fighters go after they are driven away by AMISOM and Somali army soldiers from the numerous towns and villages. They just melt into the countryside. Already they are surrounding and strangling the African and Somali government contingents. Marka, Garbaharrey, Huddur, Kismayo, Elbur, Bulo Barde, Jannale, Dafet, even Mogadishu, the capital, are surrounded by the Al-Shabaab fighters. President Hassan of Somalia needs to use a helicopter to visit Afgooye – a mere 30 km. away from Mogadishu.The international community has no solution.

The Special Representative of the AU Commission Chairperson (SRCC) forSomalia and head of AMISOM, Ambassador Maman S. Sidikou is frantically appealing for reinforcements after Al-Shabaab overran the Ugandan contingents at Jannale.

This ongoing campaign against Al-Shabaab took a long time to mount. And it is already running out of steam. It is evidently the last big campaign by the foreign troops.

Remember, some Somalis read newspapers and listen to radios. They know the ‘international community’ is badly bogged down in Syria, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Somalia, in Nigeria, in Yemen, in Europe, even in America.

Here is FBI director, James Comey, telling all the world, that ISIS is overwhelming his country: http://www.usatoday.com/…/2…/05/07/isis-attacks-us/70945534/

I hope that America, at the head of the ‘international community’, will focus on solving its own problems, instead of wasting resources on tragicomical ventures -like putting Somalia under Ethiopia and Kenya.

America has kindly granted refuge to more than a hundred thousand Somalis. For America, it is time to consider the feelings of her citizens of Somali descent. For Somali-Americans, it is time to reward America for giving us a second lease of life.

This country, America, is vital to the world. Those who talk about destroying it, don’t know what they are talking about. We should get them before they get us. Mostly by re-examining our priorities and policies, without renouncing the use of force, where necessary. Let us borrow some lessons from the Chinese. They are not in unending wars in the Middle East.

Al-Shabaab are stone-age tinkerers. It may take them a century to get an atomic bomb, if at all. America must not give in to Ethiopian and Kenyan fear-mongering.

Somalis I know, dream of an American lifestyle -not its destruction. Why does America insist on antagonizing them?

America doesn’t have to win Kenyan/Ethiopian approval at Somalia’s expense! America can treat the three countries equally well. Have three friends instead of two and a resourceful enemy.

Winston Churchill once said, Americas will eventually do the right thing, but only after exhausting all other options.

I hope that ‘exhausting all other options’ won’t take America too long. Al-Shabaab strength and prestige is growing fast, in and outside Somalia. And now it is morphing into ISIS.

There is a UN Security Council Resolution which is being violated by Kenya and Ethiopia. And the ‘international community’ is rewarding the violators. Do you still wonder why Somalis think of the ‘international community’ as the ‘international conspiracy’ that is waterboarding Somalia, in order to make it accept Kenya/Ethiopian rule?

I think that, today, Somalis see Al-Shabaab as an insurance against Kenyan/Ethiopian domination, as well as against the chronic hostility and treachery of the ‘international community’ against Somalia. Anyone in Somalia’s shoes, looking back to our history of suffering and injustice at the hands of US and UK (giving Western Somalia to Ethiopia and giving the N.F.D. to Kenya), would have reached the same conclusion: the West is so crazed by a virulent case of “crusade syndrome” that it cannot think straight.

If the IC is attuned to what Somalis are discussing nowadays, it would understand that Somali conversation is no longer about clan rivalries. The topic today is: how do we go about regaining our independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity from Ethiopia, from Kenya and from the West.

More and more, the war on Al-Shabaab is seen as nothing but a diversionary homework for Somalis. It is not a Somali war. Kenya, Ethiopia and the American-led international community want us Somalis to be obsessed with Al-Shabaab, while nudging our country towards colonial rule by Ethiopia and Kenya.

The West can do better than that.

#Somalia’s NISA Intelligence Director Mr. Abdirahman Turyare exposed corruptions within the government, business people & foreign mercenary troops in #Somalia.

So, listen to him how he exposed many internal corruptions so, who can hide the facts now?

Stop tribal & friend to friend invitations for bogus conferences in abroad on Sunday December 20, 2015 It is very bad few friends asking 4 conference host in #Turkey while they don’t truly represent the #common interests of Somalis in #Somalia.
 
Mogadishu City is a place where can and must host all private and public conferences for the common interests of the Somali people therefore; on behalf of the Somali people and the Republic of Somalia, we are telling to the People of Turkey and Government of Turkey that if you want to support Somalia please it is the best time to consult and work with the appropriate Somali Ministers and public offices in-charge for public policies and developments.
 
We, the People of Somalia are fed up with foreign governments and their mercenary troops coming in Somalia and carrying out illegal activities while some are public stealing minerals and other resources under the phony names and cover ups of NGOS.
 
Somalis wake up! No one and no foreign governments wants to see stable Somalia except few countries which came to Somalia when Somalia became poverty stricken.
 
We, the Somali people thank to the People of Turkey and the Government of Turkey for showing extraordinary aid to the People and the Government of Somalia.
 
We are also informing to the Somali People that there is no Somali National Youth who were elected democratically from corner to corner, and the Somali National Youth Conference opened in Mogadishu City is to start and organize how to form Somali National Youth which will be hard at the moment because there are several so-called semi-autonomous states which some of them can not came and represent youth because of different political views and restrictions.

We welcome the agreed principles in the Mogadishu Declaration as essential elements of a more inclusive and democratic electoral process than the 2012 process. We encourage all participants to seek compromise and to uphold their commitment to reach a final agreement by January 10, 2016.

The United States strongly supports the participants’ commitments to not extend the legislative or executive branch mandates, consistent with United Nations Security Council Resolution 2232. An on-schedule electoral process that is conducted in a fair, transparent, and inclusive manner will strengthen the relationship between the Somali people and their government and accelerate stabilization and development efforts.

The United States remains a committed partner to the people and government of Somalia and will continue to support Somalia’s efforts to realize a peaceful, united, and prosperous future.

UNHCR Statement on the murder of a staff member in Mogadishu, Somalia

Press Releases, 14 December 2015

It is with great sadness that UNHCR has learned of the killing of one of our colleagues, Amina Noor Mohamed, this afternoon in Mogadishu, Somalia. Amina was shot by unknown gunmen while travelling in a private vehicle driven by a staff member from a UNHCR partner organization who also lost his life in the attack.

Amina had been working as Senior Community Services Assistant with UNHCR in Mogadishu since 2011. She leaves behind her husband and two children, aged 2 years and 3 months. UNHCR’s Representative in Mogadishu and other colleagues are in contact with the surviving family and are extending all possible support to them. A minute of silence will be held in Amina’s memory at UNHCR Headquarters in Geneva at 11 am tomorrow.

“While the details of this senseless act of violence are still being investigated, it serves as another stark reminder of the dangers many humanitarian workers face in their daily work. On behalf of all UNHCR staff, I wish to convey our heartfelt condolences and solidarity to Amina’s family, friends and to our entire team in Somalia,” United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said.

Son of slain Somali political activist sues money-transfer business over bounty
Case alleges that big money-transfer firm helped fund the killers.

The son of a Somali singer and political activist gunned down by Al-Shabab operatives last year is suing an international money-transfer company with ties to Minnesota for allegedly paying a bounty on her life.

The lawsuit comes more than a year after the death of Saado Ali Warsame, 64, a Somali icon who lived in New York and Minneapolis before returning to her homeland in 2012. Her longtime push for social justice included roles in pushing out the country’s military regime and becoming one of the country’s first female members of parliament. Her death was mourned from Mogadishu to Minneapolis.

The lawsuit may mark the first time a company has been sued for providing funding to Al-Shabab, said Joshua Arisohn, an attorney for Warsame’s 22-year-old son Harbi Hussein, who lives in Minneapolis.

Not long before her death, Warsame pointed her criticism toward Dahabshiil, Africa’s largest money-transfer business, which facilitates most of the $1.6 billion sent to Somalia each year. The company, which houses a subsidiary headquarters in Minneapolis, is widely used by Minnesota Somalis to wire money to relatives back home, but it has been under international scrutiny for a lack of security in how money is transferred — and to whom, including potential terrorists in Somalia.

Last year, the Kenyan government temporarily suspended Dahabshiil’s operations after an Al-Shabab-led attack at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi in 2013. Several western commercial banks have ceased doing business with Dahabshiil, in part out of concerns over terrorist financing, according to the lawsuit.

Warsame was an outspoken critic of the company, writing a protest song playing off the business’ name, which means “gold smelter.” She instead called Dahabshiil a “blood smelter” and urged Somalis not to do business there. A music video by Warsame featured a rifle dripping with blood next to the company’s name.

According to the lawsuit, Dahabshiil “placed a multimillion-dollar bounty” on Warsame as a result of the song. She was killed in July 2014 by two Al-Shabab operatives in Mogadishu; they were sentenced to death and executed in May.

The lawsuit demands damages for pain and suffering by Hussein because of the loss of his mother. He declined a comment through Arisohn.

Arisohn, whose New York-based law firm has handled terror financing cases for nine years, said others could be out there.

“We are working hard to unearth all of the institutions who are financing terrorism, and I think it’s incumbent on the government and private citizens alike to investigate these matters and make sure that financial institutions like Dahabshiil are putting in place the safeguards that they are supposed to have,” Arisohn said.

Dahabshiil did not respond to a request for comment.

Arisohn said he intends to get the case to trial as quickly as possible on behalf of Hussein.

“It’s devastating whenever you lose a parent, but to lose your mother who was bravely trying to help a country in dire need and was assassinated, it truly is devastating,” he said.

Mandera leaders led by Senator Billow Kerrow have apologised over their claim of discovery of a mass grave in the county.

They regretted that their remarks at a press conference in Nairobi on Monday caused anxiety and panic among Kenyans.

Mr Kerrow said only one body was found at the site of the alleged mass grave.

“We came to Mandera following reports by some leaders here that some graves had been found. We have spent two days digging out the scene and we confirm that only one body was there. We regret the anxiety caused by the report we issued earlier,” said Mr Kerrow said.

The Senator was flanked by Governor Ali Roba, Mandera West MP Mohamud Mohamed, Lafey MP Isaack Shabaan, Abdulaziz Farah (Mandera East) and the county security team led by County Commissioner Fredrick Shisia.

Mr Kerrow said there is anxiety in Mandera town due to disappearance of people and asked security agencies to investigate the matter.

“Our message to government is that the security agents should use the normal channels to arrest people and take them to court. We want them to come in uniforms and if not, show their identifications before arresting people,” he said.

Mr Roba said called for cooperation between police and locals in the fight against insecurity.
He also called for investigations into the missing people claims.

“We want the security team to pursue the cases so that the gains we have made in encouraging the public to cooperate with police is not lost. This needs to be done for the war against terror to be won,” he said.

The leaders snubbed Cord leader Raila Odinga’s tour in Mandera. Mr Odinga travelled to Mandera on Wednesday to visit the family of Isnina Musa Sheikh whose body was found in a shallow grave on Sunday.

Mr Odinga challenged the government to tell Kenyans what caused Ms Musa’s death.

“The government has to come out clear and tell us who killed and buried mama Isnina so that her soul can rest in peace,” said Mr Odinga.

On Monday, more than 10 lawmakers from northern Kenya accused the Kenya Defence Forces of extrajudicial killings following allegations of the discovery of the mass grave.

Mr Kerrow said they had evidence that most of the people who have disappeared in the past three years had been picked up by KDF soldiers in unmarked cars and driven into military camps, never to be seen again.

 EX-Radio Mogadishu Journalist & Ex-BBC Somali Service Editor Yusuf Garad exposed Radio Mogadishu lies 2 aid 1 side!
http://yusuf-garaad.blogspot.com/2015/11/tifatirka-wararka-gaalkacyood.html?spref=fb

Ex- Somali Radio Mogadishu Journalist & Ex- BBC Somali Services Journalist and editor Yusuf Garad has officially exposed that Radio Mogadishu and SNTV are not broadcasting the facts in Galkayo City where two so-called semi-autonomous states Puntland State & Galmudug Forces fought for a building road less than 140 meters.

So, the fact is that Radio Mogadishu and SNTV are not a national radio or national television and its run by one tribal side promoting lies and propaganda.

The truth is, all Somali Media outlets including Radio Mogadishu, SNTV and Somali Public Telecommunications belongs to tribes and private owners as the Somali Government knows and can not acquire to buy from them or invest.

Unfortunately, after 3 and more years, it is very unwise that ex- Somali Prominent Journalist who worked prestigious world media outlets to come forward lately in order to shed light the true facts of Somali Public Media under the names of Private owners which are either funded directly or indirectly foreign entities which have been confusing and misleading the Somali people since 2000 until now..

So, who can now hide the facts? Mr. Yusuf!

MOGADISHU (Somaligov) – Somalia’s Prime Minister replaced two ministers on Monday as part of a minor cabinet reshuffle that officials say precedes an upcoming larger cabinet reshuffle.

In a statement issued on Monday evening, prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Sharmarke has replaced Abdirahman Abdi Osman, the trade and industry minister and appointed Abdirashid Mohamed Ahmed to his post.

Mr. Sharmarke has also appointed Mohamed Mursal to become the electricity and water minister, replacing Mohamed Hassan Aden who held the position since early this year.

The reasons behind the ministers’ dismissal have not been specified, however, the development comes as the prime minister is expected to carry out a major reshuffle of his cabinet in the coming days with key ministers would be booted out, according to sources.

In the meantime, political analysts say that Mr. Sharmarke is trying to experiment with the idea of having very few ministers after criticism that a large-sized cabinet stretches beyond the impoverished
horn Africa nation’s economic capacity.

Mr. Sharmarke’s government is struggling to contain a deadly insurgency by the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabab which is fighting his government and the African Union forces in Somalia


Mahdi Hussein Shekhal killed by government troops


BELEDWEYNE (Somali Newspaper) – Tension ran high in the central Somali town of Beledweyne after government troops shot dead a UN official in the town on Saturday, residents said Sunday. Mahdi Hussein Shekhal, a field officer with the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) was killed after armed troops opened fire at his car in Hawatako locality in the town.

A police official in the town told HOL that armed men from the late UN officer’s clan have blocked major roads and closed businesses, demanding the town’s administration to hand over the murderers.

No comments could be reached from the UNMAS officials on their official’s murder.

Elders in the town called the killing as a ‘murder-for-hire plot targeting the UN officials, accusing the region’s governor Abdifatah Hassan Afrah to be behind the killing after he had reportedly a personal arguments with the late official.

The governor hast not so far commented on the killing which sent shockwaves across the region. The development has raised fears of clan fighting divisions in the region which has long enjoyed diverse clans’ peaceful co-existence and administrational power sharing

IS TREACHERY HEREDITARY?

Somali National Television - SNTV's photo.

Adv. Dr. Abdulqair Tallman — advtllman@gmail.com
Omar Abdirashid hails from a long line of chronic traitors. His grandfather sold the Somali territory from Mareeg to Jarriban to the Italian colonialists.
His father, Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke, transferred the Northern Frontier District (N.F.D.) to Kenya towards the end of the sixties of last century.
He ordered his Prime Minister, Mohamed Ibrahim Egal, to pull the plug on the war for the liberation of the N.F.D.
Remember the Arusha Agreement? Just to refresh your memory, and to prove that the treason really took place, I am giving here the text of the so-called Arusha Agreement.
Please note that this Arusha Agreement is also know as a Memorandum
of Understanding, just like the one Omar used to transfer ownership of the Somali
sea to Kenya.
Another similarity, in addition to the name, is that Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke used Mohamed Ibrahim Egal to sign the transfer of the N.F.D. to Kenya, while Omar Abdirashid used Abdurahman Abdishakur to sign the oil-rich Somali sea to Kenya. Both son and father use their subordinates to do the signing.
Here, one is entitled to ask: has Omar’s family a close blood relationship
with the Kikuyus? Otherwise, how come they routinely sign away chunks of Somali land and sea to Kenya?

Here below, is the 1967 Arusha Agreement, giving away the N.F.D. to Kenya by authority of Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke, who, at the time, was President of the Somali Republic.
———————————————————————————-
MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING

The following is the text of the “Memorandum of
Understanding” signed by the President of Kenya and the
Somali Prime Minister on October 28th and witnessed by
the President of Zambia:
Desirous of consolidating the Kinshasa Declaration on
Kenya/Somalia Relations and recognizing the need to restore
normal and peaceful relations between Kenya and Somalia, the
two leaders reached agreement on the following points:
(i) Both Governments will exert all efforts and do
their utmost to create good-neighbourly relations
between Kenya and Somalia, in accordance with the OAU
Charter.
(ii) The two Governments agree that the interests
of the people of Kenya and Somalia were not
served by the continuance of tension between the
two countries.
(iii) They therefore reaffirm their adherence to the
declaration of the OAU conference at Kinshasa
(see above), a copy of which is attached to this
memorandum of understanding.
(iv) In order to facilitate a speedy solution to the
dispute and to ensure the maintenance of continued
stood relations, both Governments have agreed to:
(a) the maintenance of peace and security on both sides
of the border by preventing destruction of human
life and property;
(b) refrain from conducting hostile propaganda through
mass media such as radio and the press, against each
other, and encourage propaganda which promotes the
development and continuance of friendly relations
between the two countries;
(c) the gradual suspension of any emergency regulations
imposed on either side of the border;
(d) the reopening of diplomatic relations between the two
countries;
(e) the consideration of measures encouraging the development
of economic and trade relations;
(f) appoint a Working Committee consisting of Somalia,
Kenya, and Zambia, which will meet periodically to
review the implementation by Somalia and Kenya
of the points agreed in this document and also to
examine ways and means of bringing about a satisfac-
tory solution to major and minor differences between
Kenya and Somalia.
————————————————————————————————————————-
The raging successful N.F.D. war of liberation was suddenly ended fruitlessly by order of Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke – Omar’s father, who, at the time, was President of the Somali Republic.
This agreement, giving away the N.F.D. to Kenya, was also called a Memorandum of Understanding.
History repeats itself.
And Now, Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke, descending from a long line of traitors, has signed away to Kenya the oil-rich Somali sea. The agreement signed by Omar Abdirashid is also called a “Memorandum of Understanding”. The Kenyans must have kept the format of the Memorandum of Understanding intact in their archives. They knew that: LIKE GRANDFATHER LIKE FATHER, and also, like father like son.
Instead of talking, before the UN, about non-issues, such as trade in a civil war atmosphere, Omar needs to come clean about the sale of the oil-rich Somali sea to Kenya:
How much did Kenya pay him? Was it in cash or kind? How much do the Kenyans still owe him?
Who acted as the middle man? etc. Where did Omar deposit the money?
The Somali people, whose sea he sold to Kenya, need answers, answers, answers. Now, Now, Now!

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

Finally, at the International Court of Justice, Kenya is today using the Memorandum of Understanding as her one and only argument to claim our oil-rich Somali sea.

The same Memorandum of Understanding signed by Abdirahman Abdishakur at the express order of Omar Abdirashid:

Mogadishu, 19 October 2015 – Salam Aleikum,HE the President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, Hon Speaker of the Federal Parliament,HE the Prime Minister of the FGS, Presidents of the Federal Member States and Interim Regional Administration,Members of Parliament, Ministers, Representatives of civil society and women’s organisations, Fellow Ambassadors, Ladies and Gentlemen
What a great honour it is to be invited here today. Less than one month ago, on 21 September, I was delighted to witness the formal launch of the consultative process on the electoral process for 2016.I am even more delighted today to witness the next stage in this process, with the convening of a broad and inclusive National Consultative Forum. I am particularly delighted to see that all Interim Regional Administrations and Federal States as well as the civil society are represented here today.The dedication, and the work that has happened in the past few short weeks is truly impressive. I congratulate and thank all concerned. Today’s Forum meeting is a great showcase for Somalia. This event is Somali-led and Somali-owned, and it is in Somalia. You are showing the world that you are on course to deliver your commitment to respect the provisional federal Constitution and hold an electoral process in 2016.Many of you know how simple-minded I am and how I love simple metaphors. I have often described your state-building and peace-building task as a house building project, which can only be done in one sequence: first the foundations, then the walls and finally the roof. Where are we on the project? As the President and the Speaker explained, the foundations are almost complete: Somalia’s future federal member states are almost formed. Only Middle Shabelle and Hiraan remain and I urge clear progress on that process before the next UN Security Council meeting on Somalia on the 9th of November. If the foundations are federal states, the constitution provides the walls. Important progress is underway to review the constitution. With good coordination and skill, I am confident the basic framework will be in place.And so we come to the roof: the electoral process. Normally, international partners are always urging faster and speedier progress, but I remember many months ago I urged you to go more slowly. Before completing the walls and the foundations, you could not design the roof. But today is the great day when you can and should turn your attention to deciding what kind of roof you will have. What kind of election will be right for 2016. Only you can decide. Only Somalis know the materials available, only you know the expertise you can deploy, the local conditions: which way the wind blows, is wind, rain, or sun the major threat that you face.You have a great responsibility. The roof you build will need to be strong, but above all the Somali people will need to trust it and to trust you the architects. To gain their trust and to get the design right, you will need to consult widely.You begin today a broad process of consultation with Somalis across the country, to collectively discuss and, ultimately, decide what kind of electoral process will take place in 2016.After today, regional public consultations will take place in each of the Federal member states and interim regional administrations.  There will need to be a consultation with Somalis from the diaspora.  Somalia will speak.As a friend of Somalia and as a representative of the UN, I respectfully hope the next Parliament will include a major increase in the number of women and youth MPs.This afternoon an event will be held here on women’s political participation.  This will be an important occasion to highlight the role that women have to play.  We need Somali women to strengthen their participation for the advancement of community stabilization, social cohesion and to consolidate peace.The consultative process will take place in stages.  Today, you begin your discussions of what approaches could be taken. You will reconvene in December to make final decisions. Today is not the day for those decisions.As you know, there are many different ways an electoral process could be conducted. For now the most important question is to identify what the implications would be of each of these approaches, and how they could be implemented in practice.  Each approach will have advantages and disadvantages.  I would encourage you all to discuss these aspects.The international community is here to observe and support your efforts. As the President of Jubbaland said, we are very happy to back off as well and leave this to be a Somali process. I wish to thank partners for their never-ending patience, financial and political support. I also express my deep appreciation to UNDP, UNSOA and UNSOM for their help with staging today’s event.I think I would be right to say that at least three things matter to the international community:i)            Timing – respect for the constitutional deadline of 2016 is paramountii)            Secondly, process – we hope your process will be based on a spirit of reconciliation, inclusivity and placing the national interest above all other interests. In this forum, focus only on the 2016 process.iii)           The result – in 2016 we look forward to a more representative Parliament, more inclusive, and more answerable to the Somali people. The new parliament and government should reflect the beauty of Somalia today – young and old, female and male, from all corners and communities of Somalia.The UN Security Council has been clear about its expectations and also clear that those who obstruct or undermine progress will not be tolerated whether they are individuals or groups, in the centre or in the regions. As a friend of Somalia and as a firm supporter of all your efforts, it is only fair that I should remind you of the high standards you have set for yourselves. Your international partners will hold you to account accordingly.I now wish you all successful deliberations. At the end of tomorrow, I hope you will leave having approved the facilitation guide. Please embrace this opportunity in a spirit of compromise and reconciliation. Please set the example to all Somalis and the world of a Somalia healing itself – of a federal Somalia coming together – stronger, more united than ever.I wish you all the best for this Forum.Thank you.

UK to deploy troops to help keep peace in Somalia and South Sudan

David Cameron offers help in training and logistics for UN and African Union peacekeepers in attempt to foster ‘less terrorism and migration’

Hundreds of British troops will be deployed to Somalia and South Sudan to train African peacekeeping forces in order to foster “less terrorism and less migration”, David Cameron has said.

The prime minister said he was offering forces to United Nations (UN) and African Union (AU) missions to help tackle conflicts that are facilitating the rise of terrorist groups in Somalia and prompting mass migration from South Sudan, where 2 million people have been displaced by the battle between the government and rebels.

About 70 members of the military personnel will be offered to help in Somalia, where a peacekeeping unit is present to tackle the threat of the Islamist group al-Shabaab. They will not be involved in combat operations but will help train AU forces in areas including logistics, engineering and medical aid.

Further troops – about 250 to 300 over the course of several missions – are being sent to carry out specific tasks in South Sudan, such as engineering advice and combat training.

Cameron will offer the troops at a session on UN peacekeeping on Monday, hosted by the secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, and the US president, Barack Obama, with dozens of other member states expected to make contributions.

Speaking before his arrival in New York, Cameron said: “We think Britain has a particular role in training and logistics and expertise and standards, so we want to step up what we are doing. But let me stress, we all want to see all the right force-protection arrangements in place but we should be playing a part in this.

“What happens in Somalia, if it’s a good outcome, it’s good for Britain, it means less terrorism, less migration, less piracy; ditto South Sudan.”

He said it was “absolutely vital that the international community works together to shore up stability in Africa”.

The UK has contributed to many peacekeeping forces over the years, wearing the distinctive blue berets of the UN, but its role is largely limited now to providing about 280 troops participating in the current mission in Cyprus.

About £260m has been given in aid to South Sudan since the start of the civil war in December 2013. But the British government has in recent years come under pressure to contribute more in the way of boots on the ground to bolster the UN’s peacekeeping aims.

Mogadishu on Wednesday September 23, 2015 Prime Minister H.E. Omar Abdirashid welcomes #Puntland State & #Jubbaland State for their withdrawal from Mogadishu #conference that failed.

I would like to inform the Somali people that if some politicians wants to violate the Federal Constitution then I want to tell them that enough is enough.

Somalia has a Federal Constitution which the current leaders were elected according to the Federal Constitution, and if you believe that you can act above the Federal Constitution then it is the best time to step down and apologize to the Somali people.

It is very ridiculous that some of our foreign guests which represents the international community in Somalia were and are still trying to interfere with political affairs in Somalia which drags out and creates more hostile misunderstanding and fresh conflicts among Somali politicians.

As we know that the Somali Members of Parliament submitted a political motion, and we are still trying to solve this political motion in the Somali Parliament but we have seen our foreign friends issuing blunt statements to interfere with our internal affairs.

I want to tell the Somali people that the Somali Members of Parliament has the right to implement transparency, accountability and trustworthy within the Somali Federal Government, and those leaders found with corruption cases then it is better to step down and leave office because what you could not solve more than three years, you can not solve it within one year remaining.

I am very glad that Puntland State and Jubbaland State as well as Somaliland State to stay away fro this failed conference after they saw that the Office of the President has intentionally violated the Federal Constitution that forced #Jubbland, Puntland State and Somaliland State to stay away from this foreign sponsored Mogadishu conference.

Sincerely yours,
Office of the Prime Minister

Press Release on Wednesday September 23, 2015
‪#‎Jubbaland‬ State President H.E. Ahmed Mohamed Islam returned to Kismayo City where he confirmed Mogadishu conference was foreign failure.
#Jubbaland State confirmed that Mogadishu conference was foreign failure to meddle with ‪#‎Somalia‬‘s internal affairs.

It is unfortunate that the United Nations Political Office for Somalia and foreign governments to violate the federal constitution which states clearly that two and more regions in Somalia can form their semi-autonomous state in Somalia.

On behalf of the Jubbaland State people and my government, we want to tell and share that foreign intervention in Somalia won’t solve our internal crisis, and the biggest problem for political derailment was the Somali Federal Government which does not comply with the Federal Constitution.

It’s very clear that the Somali people and the world understands that there are foreigners who wants to swindle on bogus projects in Somalia, and it’s the best time to stop their illegal preference to meddle with Somalia’s internal affairs otherwise; we can force them to leave Somalia as soon as possible.

Jubbaland State clarified that Puntland State left the Mogadishu conference after Puntland State saw the constant violation of the Federal Constitution by the Somali Federal Government in conjunction with foreign international NGOS which meddles with Somalia’s internal affairs.

Best Wishes,
Jubbaland State

Step Down Mr. President Hassan, You failed to lead Somalia!
Who can hide President’s corruptions in Somalia where his closest friend MP Hon. Farah Sheikh Abdikadir came to expose it to media?
Truth is that you fired two previous innocent Somali Prime Ministers while public funds are stolen easily among top leaders in-charge.
So, how can you hide your corruptions Mr. President Hassan?

Well, every Somali and human being can listen to this recorded interview where MP Hon. Farah Abdikadir has officially exposed many untold corruptions within the Somali Government so, if your best friend MP Hon, Farah Abdikadir exposed your corruptions within the Somali Government, and there is still an active motion to fire and impeach you then why are you trying to hanging around?

Be like a man! Remember that the Somali people and the international community won’t accept or fund your corruptions so, it’s better to step down.

Well, we thank to the Chairman of the Somali Civil Society Mr. Shirwa for exposing and telling that the Somali people are not ready to accept more corruptions and political derailments as recorded in this by the Somali Voice of America Section.

Mogadishu on Sunday September 20. 2015 Delegates from the northern semiautonomous state of Puntland have walked out of a consultative meeting discussing about the upcoming 2016 presidential elections in the Somali capital in protest of the formations of the government-backed rival Galmudug administration, sources told HOL on Sunday.

Abdiweli Mohamed Ali Gas, Puntland president told reporters that his administration’s stand towards Galmudug which he believes to annex parts of Puntland region, as mediations aimed at ending the standoff is going on.

The conference which brought together leaders from the county’s regional administration started on Saturday with the Somali government wants to consult how despite challenges the country would hold presidential elections in 2016 with stakeholders.Somali government has announced that the country would not be able to hold ‘one man, one vote’ election, largely for security reasons.

Opposition parties accused the government of security lax, and corruption, an accusation denied by the government.

Somali government has’nt so far commented on the development which raises serious questions about the relations between the central government and regional adminstrations.

Meanwhile, Puntland president said his administration would issue a statement reflecting the region’s clear position towards Galmudug administration.

Abdikarim Hussein, the president of the Galkayo-based Galmudug administration says his administration wants talks with Puntland to end the political ‘misunderstanding’ between the two sides.

Press Release on Sunday September 6, 2015
Future Presidential Candidate in 2016
On behalf of the Somali people and my presidential compliant in 2016, I ant to assure to Somalis and the world that Somalia’s current leadership failed and are all corrupted to swindle public funds for private usage as exposed among themselves.

Surely, Somali Members of Parliament has recently submitted a motion to impeach and fire the incumbent President his Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who has been failing to lead with endless corruptions and political mismanagements.

I believe that it is the best time for our incumbent President his Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to step down without making and diving the Somali Members of Parliament because as I heard that recently there are 126 Somali Members of Parliament who are trying to defend President his Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud to stay in power until his tenure.

Please, it is time to leave Somali presidency and Somalia in peace otherwise; the Somali people and the world at large are fed up with your governmental corruptions, and we know that the international community has stopped funding.

So, what is next?

After six so-called pillars which President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has told to Somalia and the world failed then you must step down from the Office of the President.

I am also requesting to the Somali Members of Parliament, Parliament Leadership and Members of the Somali Current Cabinet to work and help Somalis in order to get out of political crisis.

I was surprised to watch the Somali National Television on Saturday September 6. 2015 that the Somali Central Bank Governor Mr. Bashir Isse exposed that Somaliland and Puntland Administrations made forgery currencies since 1991 until now.

As the First Somali Presidential Candidate, I promise to bring transparency, accountability and trustworthy in 2016, and I want every Somali to join with me in order to revive national unity and prestige.

And we can foreword so that people will enjoy peace and prosperous life in their country – Somalia.

Best Wishes,
Mr. Osman Sheikh Omar
Somali Presidential Candidate in 2016

Dear Farah Hasan Amalo,

You have made a good diagnosis: injustice and clanism are what are consuming the Somali body politic. I would
add, poisonous interference of the ‘international community.
Now that, with your help, we have identified  the disease(s), what is the next logical step?
I think it is to treat the patient.
Do you think the Kenyan, Ethiopian soldiers in Somalia are the right drugs to cure this (Somali)
patient? Personally, I think those aren’t the right drugs. Rather,they are meant to poison the patient.
That is why I am calling for the withdrawal from Somalia of troops from both Kenya and Ethiopia. Bring Egyptian, Moroccan, Algerian, Indian, Chinese, American, Nepalese, Brazilian, Australian troops.  In short, bring troops from
every country in the world, with the exception of Kenya and Ethiopia.
Why is the International Community’ not interested in such suggestions?  I think it is because the ‘international
community’ is not trying to heal Somalia, but to ‘waterboard’ it till Somalis accept Kenya and Ethiopia rule.
Why?
Is it because Somalis are Muslims. The leaders of the ‘international community’ happen to be white. That is no big
deal. Somalis look down on everyone – white or black. They are insanely proud. Many a white man has complained
and written about nomadic Somali families throwing away, or breaking the glass that some white traveller had drunk
from. Such behaviour is reprehensible. But I am bringing it up only to illustrate that Somalis don’t suffer from
an inferiority complex vis a vis the white man.
However, the leaders of the ‘international community’  also happen to be, roughly speaking, Christian. While Kenya
and Ethiopia, by a strange coincidence, are Christian countries. So, naturally, Somalis are suspicious of the well-known ”crusade syndrome” of the leaders of the ‘international community’.
To settle the matter, I am proposing a litmus test here. If Somali suspicions are wrong, then let the ‘international community’ withdraw the ridiculous Kenyan and Ethiopian ’armies’ from Somalia.
Somalis are a warrior nation.  To kick Ethiopia’s butt, Somalis don’t even need a strong government. They booted out the Ethiopians in 2005-6. There was no government at all in Somalia then. The country was very weak from fifteen years of debilitating civil war. Yet the Ethiopians were whipped badly.
Also remember 1977.  The Abyssinians had to cry to Russia and Cuba. To Yemen and  Libya, for salvation.
The Somali fighters were at he gates of Addis Abeba,  the capital of Ethiopia.
But in 2005-6, there wasn’t even a weak Somali government. And the country was reeling from seventeen
years of civil war. We humiliated the Ethiopians just for sport-  on a self-help volunteer basis.
Ethiopia is still smarting from the whipping they received then.  They don’t like to hear the word ‘Mogadishu’
now.  In Somali, we call that (iskaa-wax-u-qabso), a simple help-yourself exercise, without government, by just
several thousand freedom fighters in Mogadishu.
That history should have taught the world that Kenya and Ethiopia cannot be forced down Somali throats.
The fickle, treacherous, hostile to everything Somali, colonial-minded  ’international community’ has to
understand that Somalis, when it comes down to brass tacks, will prefer to live under Al Shabab, rather than under Kenyan/Ethiopian rule.
Sadly, the ‘international  community’  doesn’t seem to get it.
The ‘international community’ is led by my country: rich, powerful, glorious America. This magnanimous country
that welcomed my Muslin teenage son, to its heart – to New York- at the height of the Boston terrorist attack,
committed by young Muslims, like my son- a  Muslim youth being welcomed in New York, while other young
Muslims were committing mass murder in the not-too-far-away Boston.
It pains me to see my country, America, spending billions of dollars just to bring Somalia under Kenyan and
Ethiopian rule. Mission impossible, my dear country.  Even with one hand tied to its back, Somalia can always
whip the Ethiopians.
My country- the United States of America- badly needs to understand, that the more America, and company,
try to humiliate Somalis, by placing them under the neighbouring countries, the more recruits Al Shabab will
find. Even if many Somalis, just like me, don’t like the group.  It is the ‘international community’ that is driving
the Somali people into the hands of Al Shabab. Knowingly?  I will not propose the various conspiracy theories
on the matter.  However, the ‘international community’ cannot be stupid enough to dream of a Somalia
under Ethiopia/Kenyan rule. But that, curiously, is what they have been trying to achieve, for more than two
decades. So, we cannot ignore the conspiracy theories altogether.
Somalis, deep down, see Al Shabab as an insurance against Kenyan/Ethiopian domination,
as well as against the chronic hostility and treachery  of the ‘international community’ against Somalia.
Dear Farah Hassan Amalo, after you correctly identified the Somali disease, maybe you want to suggest
the treatment, if it is different from the above suggestion: that is to say, get Kenyan/Ethiopian troops
out of Somalia. Replace them with soldiers from other countries of the world. Then we move on from there.
Your uncle,
Abdulqadir Tallman.

1 September 2015 – The top UN official in Somalia, Nicholas Kay, has strongly condemned today’s attack by Al Shabaab militants on an African Union Mission (AMISOM) base at Janaale, Lower Shabelle Region manned by troops from the Ugandan contingent.

According to AMISOM, the militants used a car loaded with explosives to trigger the attack and to facilitate their forced entry into the camp after which they engaged soldiers in a gun-battle.

Full control of the base has reportedly been regained.

In a statement, Mr. Kay sent his deepest condolences to the families who lost loved ones and to the people and governments of Uganda and Somalia.

“These courageous peacekeepers sacrificed their lives in the ongoing efforts to bring lasting peace and security to Somalia,” he said, adding that the United Nations remains resolute in its support for the Somali people.

Mr. Kay, who is the head of the UN Assistance Mission in the country, known as UNSOM, also underlined that the UN’s solidarity with AMISOM and Somali security forces in their efforts to defeat Al-Shabaab “will not waver.”

The Security Council recently authorized the Member States of the African Union to maintain the deployment of AMISOM until 30 May 2016.

US pledges more military support to Somalia

The United States has pledged more significant support to Somalia’s fledgling military infrastructure, a statement from the Office of the President in Mogadishu disclosed on Tuesday.The statement quoted a visiting US delegation led by Katie Wheelbarger, Policy Director and Deputy Staff Director on the Senate Armed Services Committee as saying that the United States would become more involved in strengthening the military capabilities of the Somali army.
Any future support from the US will be channeled to the ongoing process of integrating the Somali national army which is being slowly rebuilt following years of civil strife.
It will also include upgrading the capacity of the Ministry of Defense in order to attain a strong civilian oversight within it.

The US delegation had met with Prime Minister, Omar Sharmarke and his Minister for Defense Abdulkhadir Diini with whom strengthening the security were discussed.

Prime Minister Sharmarke thanked Washington for its continuous support to Somalia especially in the security field but underlined the need to establish a solid and well established armed forces institution.

“The process of integrating the National Army is still ongoing, at present there are several camps established nationwide and we hope success in that aspect which would be a cornerstone for nation building” said Prime Minister Sharmarke.

Currently Somali government forces are being supported by African Union peacekeepers from Uganda, Kenya and Sierra Leone among other contributing countries.

Mogadishu, 1 September 2015: The AMISOM base at Janaale, Lower Shabelle Region in Somalia came under attack from Al-Shabaab militants today. The militants used a car loaded with explosives to trigger the attack and to facilitate their forced entry into the camp after which they engaged our soldiers in a gun-battle.

#Somalia’s #Speaker of #Parliament MP Hon. Mohamed Sheikh Osman tells #President H..E. Hassan Sheikh to resign within days before he open this political motion in the parliamentary session soon with vote of confidence plus impeachment and freezing stolen funds and bought assets with the illegally stolen funds.

#Somalia’s #Speaker of #Parliament MP Hon.

The Somali people, Members of the Parliament and the world at large knows the truth of your internal corruptions so, if you want to become a statesman then you better step down politely otherwise; there are more 197 Members of Parliament who are determined to end your corruptions and the illegal activities of the Damu-Jadid Group who has been derailing peace in Somalia while they have been arming and supporting terrorists as reported and verified by ex- Somali Ministers who served key ministerial posts such as the Somali Interior Ministry, Information Ministry, Foreign affairs Ministry as well as the United Nations Montoring Group on Somalia and Eritrea Report issued on July 12, 2014.

On behalf of the Somali Parliament, I want to tell Somalis and the world that Somalia has a constitution which we elected President his Excellency Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, and the same constitution will be used to fire him with his endless corruptions and political derailment for peace in the country for almost three years.

I also warn to the Members of the International Community who are constantly interfering with our internal affairs because we have listened to their concerns but we can no longer accept internal and external corruptions any more.

Baardheere town Saturday, August 22, 2015 , recently liberated by the Somali National Army and troops from the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), is teeming with activity after years of subdued life under the Al Shabaab.

The town, situated in the Gedo region and liberated in July 2015, is an important agricultural centre living up to it’s name; Baar meaning “palm tree”, and Dheere meaning “tall”; a reference to the ubiquitous palm trees that have grown expansively in the area.

The river banks are lined by beautiful palm trees and so are the farms of this town that lies at an intersection of all major roads that links Somalia to Elwak and Mandera in Kenya, Kismayo, Baidoa, Barawe and Dinsoor within Somalia.

The town is also known as the centre of Islamic scholarship,  as it is for agricultural production. The climate is ideally suited for year-round crop production and boasts of farms of sorghum, corn, onions, beans, sesame plants, tobacco, and fruits such as bananas, watermelon, oranges, papayas, and mangoes.

Entry and exit to and from the  town is through an imposing metallic bridge, the Baardheere Bridge, built over the giant Jubba River, which is a year-long source of water in the region.

It is at this bridge that the battle for Baardhere was won when AMISOM troops came calling and Al Shabaab experienced a humiliating defeat .

“The bridge is strategic utility for Al Shabab, they are using the bridge to cross over from the other part of town and go east into the regions around Gedo and the Kenyan border towns of Wajir, El-Waq and Mandere, So this is a major crossing point for Al Shabab. Controlling the bridge controls Al shabab movements in Bardheere,” said Colonel Abdirashid, AMISOM KDF Battalion ​Commander in Baardheere

From Baardheere the terror group controlled food production and collected tax from farming communities to sustain their operations. They also controlled human and motorized traffic at the bridge, turning it into a toll station and a prime source of funds for terrorism activities.

Before its liberation in July, Al Shabaab operated in Baardheere and neighbouring Dinsoor for over eight years, controlling the lives of locals including their movement, methodically killing them in the guise of maintenance of law and order and slowly strangulating their economy methodically. This choke hold on the two towns also meant they always had the ability to resurrect whenever FGS and AMISOM troops destroyed their capabilities elsewhere.

“Initially when we came over, the locals here were a little bit apprehensive because of the long rule from the Al Shabaab, they were 50-50 in accepting us but now they have seen the profits of us coming over here. Right now, there is a lot of activity going on in town we have a marketplace that is bubbling with activities, we have a livestock market that is going on, we have small entrepreneurship businesses that is coming up and for the first time may be in around eight years, the locals are now able to access television and radios something that was not there when Al Shabaab were in control here,” adds Colonel Abdirashid, AMISOM KDF Battalion ​Commander in Baardheere.

Baardheere is now back in the hands of the Federal Government of Somalia. Residents who had fled the ruthless Al Shabaab rule have started flowing back to their abandoned homes, farms and livestock.

The Baardheere District Commissioner Abdullahi Nur Hassan said, “The populations were under the siege of Al Shabaab, so they are very happy to the soldiers captured this area and they are doing their own business freely. No one is interfering their affairs but we are targeting the enemies hiding inside them and this issue is doing by the police.”

A resident of Baardheere Mahmoud Ismail Hashi agrees, “There was a lot of problems coming from Al Shabaab. There were no Aid agencies here, no good life and the people were suffering. From now, the situation is gradually becoming stable, though there is big change still but the population is happy, they got freedom but they need emergency aid”.

The residents here are slowly picking up the pieces; tilling their land in readiness for the rains and restocking abandoned shops, while the Federal Government starts to re-establish government institutions in earnest and enhance the rule of law.

Statement by the African Union Special Representative for Somalia and Head of AMISOM addressing the 31st July 2015 Incident in Marka, Lower Shabelle Region of Somalia

DSC_2672

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Thank you for honouring my invitation at short notice. 

This afternoon I would like to talk to you about the incident involving AMISOM troops in Marka on 31st July 2015.

You would recall that we issued a statement on the 4th of August in which we stated that the officer in charge of the troop detachment was recalled for questioning as a prelude to a possible further investigation.

Indeed, we have established that, on that occasion, seven civilians died following an incident involving our troops.

At this juncture therefore, I would like on behalf of the African Union, to offer my sincere apology for these deaths.

We regret these deaths.

And I would like to offer sincere and profound condolences to the families of those who lost their lives, and indeed to the people and the Federal Government of Somalia.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Since we established that there was a credible (prima facie) basis for a further and thorough investigation of the allegations, we instituted a process of investigations to establish further facts into the circumstances that led to this tragic incident.

This process has already established the fact, as I have stated earlier, that seven persons died.

In addition, and it is in that regard that three AMISOM personnel have been indicted and are awaiting to be arraigned before a military judicial process.

I would like to commend the commanders for taking appropriate and responsive action in dealing with this matter in line with the Mission’s conduct and discipline procedures.

Furthermore, to establish any additional culpability, I have instituted a Board of Inquiry composed of military, civilian and police officers who are not from the Contingent concerned in order to ensure impartiality.

The investigating board will work closely with the local community leaders, the regional administration and the Federal Government.

The board will also conduct its work in a transparent manner and will guarantee confidentiality and safety of potential witnesses who may appear before the investigation board.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let me reiterate here that as the Head of AMISOM, together with my colleagues seated with me here, I will continue to ensure that all AMISOM personnel, whether uniformed or civilians, armed or unarmed, strictly adhere to the fundamental principles of International Humanitarian Law as well as the African Union Peace Support Operations Code of Conduct.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Our soldiers are operating in a very complex environment. We will continue to appeal to our host communities to facilitate the work of our troops in the fight against al Shabaab.

On our part, AMISOM troops will continue to uphold the inviolability of civilian lives as sacrosanct. As such, we will continue to make sure that, as our soldiers carry out their mandate of supporting the Somali people and government in the fight against al Shabaab in this very difficult environment, we do not lose sight of this cardinal principle.

Let me conclude by once again expressing our deepest condolences to the families of the victims of this tragic incident.

That was the focus of my brief to you this afternoon.

I will now take a few questions, but let us focus on this issue.

Thank you.

Mogadishu on Thursday August 13, 2015 Premier H.E. Omar Abdirashid welcomes recently submitted a parliamentary motion to fire President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud.

After five months without salaries to Somali public employees, and I really know that Somali Members of Parliament had fed up with mismanagement of public funds and supporting illegal Damu-Jadid Group who thought that they could stern everything at the Office of the President and the Office of Prime Minister as well as bribing Members of Somali Parliament to fire two previous Somali Prime Ministers who reject such endless corruptions from President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud’s Damu-Jadid Group.

I thank to two previous Prime Ministers H.E. Abdi Farah Shirdon and H.E. Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed who made the best sacrifice to step down when President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud & his Damu-Jadid Group bribed the Somali Members of Parliament.

Fortunately, Somali Members of Parliament finally saw the truth about Damu-Jadid corruption whose mission is to steal funds, organize illegalities as well as violating the Federal Constitution since they took up power on September 10, 2012 until now.

I personally tried to warn Damu-Jadid Group several times before but they still think that they can manipulate the status quo.

I want to tell Somalis and the world at large that President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and Damu-Jadid Group failed to lead Somalia, and I can not work with them any more so, I thank to the Somali Members of Parliament who had recently submitted this parliamentary motion to fire President H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud who even failed to implement his six pillars which he told to Somalis and the world.

Unfortunately, I tried to stop Damu-jadid corruptions & violations to the Federal Constitution but they’re determined to either rule Somalia illegally under terrorism activities or destroying stable and existing semi-autonomous states in the country.

Step down Mr. President Hassan now or the Somali Members of Parliament will carry out vote of no confidence to take you out the Somali Presidency which you have been abusing since on September 10, 2012 till now.

PUNTLAND’S POSITION ON THE HLPF MEETING HELD IN MOGADISHU ON THE 29 OF JULY 2015.

July 29, 2015

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Download the Statements as PDF file

Puntland Government of Somalia wishes to express its utmost gratitude to our International partners for their firm commitment to continuously support the Somali people in their genuine desire to achieve progress, prosperity and stability.

We recognize that the endorsement of the New Deal Somali Compact marked a new phase in the political relationship between Somalia and the international community. Similarly, we acknowledge that the High level Partnership Forum (HLPF) has been a driving force over the past two years for the considerable gains in helping the Somalis attain more sense of overall stability and peace.

Evidently, Somalia today stands at a decisive point of time. The momentum and the optimistic trajectory of Somalia must be sustained. At the same time, we are alarmed at the current political paralysis and crisis, and sincerely call upon all Somali stakeholders to show leadership and wisdom out of this quagmire.

As stated in Article 4 of the founding charter of our state, Puntland was established in 1998 based on the understanding to be part and parcel of a united federal Somalia. Consequently and as documented by history,  Puntland has been tirelessly taking tremendous leadership roles in ensuring the doctrine and spirit of federalism is collectively achieved through its active participation and hosting of numerous forums dating back to the Eldoret conference, Garowe 1 & 2 principles and Galkayo agreement.

Let it be known, that it was the desire of the Government of Puntland to attend the HLPF which opened on the 29th of July in Mogadishu, but however, decided to abstain from the meeting based on the following concrete reasons and chronology of events that collectively demands the attention of all Somalis and our international partners:

 

1. VIOLATION OF THE FEDERAL PROVISIONAL CONSTITUTION  

1.1: The current federal Government has deliberately annulled the genuine federal constitution as signed by the six National Roadmap signatories in Nairobi on the 22nd of June, 2012. It has also single-handedly tampered and changed twenty four important articles that included among others:

a)    The suspension of the upper house (see Article 72. Section J)

b)    The status of the national capital of the federal government of Somalia (see Article 9)

c)    The formation of member states (see Article 52)

d)    The modalities and processes of changes and amendments to the provisional

constitution (see Article 199, Section 3 and 5)

e)    The issues of land, properties and environment (see Article 44, Section 6)

f)     Devolution of power (see Article 55)

1.2: Contrary to the stipulations of the provisional constitution, the Federal Government has created an illegal interim administration in Adado district (see Article 50, section 6).

1.3: Contrary to the stipulations of the provisional constitution, the Federal Government directly appointed the Federal Election Commission without any consultation whatsoever with the members of the federal states (see Article 111, Section 2) to fulfill their sinister political agenda and  maim the hopes of a free and fair election in 2016.

1.4: Contrary to the stipulations of the provisional constitution, the Federal Government directly appointed the Federal Boundaries Commission without any consultation whatsoever with the members of the federal states (see Article 111, Section 2) with an ulterior motive against the spirit of federalism and to drum up the evils of the civil war.

 

  1. 2.    NON-IMPLEMENTATION OF PREVIOUS AGREEMENTS SIGNED BETWEEN PUNTLAND GOVERNMENT AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

 

The Government of Puntland has previously signed a number of agreements and understandings on cooperation with the Federal Government dating to 2009 to 2015. Parts of these agreements included:

a)    To have regular and joint consultation on Vision 2016.

b)    To have a fair and balance distribution of all donations and aid resources received on behalf of the Somali nation.

c)    As stated in the provisional constitution, to allow Puntland to develop its natural resources without any hindrance (see Article 142).

d)    To return all illegally and violently acquired private properties to its rightful owners and engage on regular consultation on all national properties and assets both within Somalia and abroad.

e)    To build a national patriotic and inclusive Somali army devoid of clan character.

f)     To have a more fairly balanced and inclusive political appointments at the higher hierarchy of government at federal level.

g)    The recognition of Puntland issued educational certificates.

h)   To set up a technical team to work out on the best modalities of positive engagement between Puntland and the federal government.

Unfortunately, the Federal Government failed to honour any of these previously binding agreements, and this has consequently forced the people and the Government of Puntland to lose faith, confidence and gave rise to the current serious trust deficit with the Federal Government.

a)    As stated in the provisional constitution, to allow Puntland to develop its natural resources without any hindrance (see Article 142).

b)    To return all illegally and violently acquired private properties to its rightful owners and engage on regular consultation on all national properties and assets both within Somalia and abroad.

f)     To set up a technical team to work out on the best modalities of positive engagement between Puntland and the federal government.

Unfortunately, the Federal Government failed to honour any of these previously binding agreements, and this has consequently forced the people and the Government of Puntland to lose faith, confidence and gave rise to the current serious trust deficit with the Federal Government.

  1. 2.    UNDERMINING OF THE FEDERAL SYSTEM AND ACTIVE PROMOTION OF MOGADISHU CENTRIC UNITARY SYSTEM.

The Federal Govement delibartely poses and undermines the agreed constitutional federal system of governance while actively promoting the return of unitary system that will benefit colloquial interests. For example:

a)    The Federal Government openly and directly opposed the formation of a legal and legitimately state formation processes such as Jubbaland that met the constitutionally mandated criteria for the formation of a federal member state.

b)    The Federal Government sponsored and promotes the one and half (1 ½) region Adaado Administration in clear violation of Article 50 Section (6a) of the Provisional Federal Constitution (June, 2012).

c)    The Federal Government actively engages in inappropriate political interference and manipulation in Puntland and Jubbaland with the aim of undermining stability and security of these federal member states.

d)    The Federal Government opposed the recognition of the constitutionally compliant and legitimately formed Jubbaland federal member state, while publically promoting the recognition of the unconstitutional Adaado administration.

e)    With the aim of undermining the implementation of the constitutionally mandated federal system of governance, the Federal Government funds and organizes insecurity, inciting local conflict and violence in Galgadud, Jubbaland, Lower Shabelle, Hiran, and Puntland.

 

  1. 4.  ELECTION IN 2016:

The Federal Goverment has failed to fulfill its contitutional mandate to deliver the one person one vote in 2016, nor has it developed an inclusive action plan.  This is clearly demostrated by:

a)    The failure to complete the federal constitutional process and establishing of a federal system through a consultative process.

a)    The Federal Government opposed the recognition of the constitutionally compliant and legitimately formed Jubbaland federal member state, while publically promoting the recognition of the unconstitutional Adaado administration.

b)    With the aim of undermining the implementation of the constitutionally mandated federal system of governance, the Federal Government funds and organizes insecurity, inciting local conflict and violence in Galgadud, Jubbaland, Lower Shabelle, Hiran, and Puntland.

 

  1. 4.  ELECTION IN 2016:

The Federal Goverment has failed to fulfill its contitutional mandate to deliver the one person one vote in 2016, nor has it developed an inclusive action plan.  This is clearly demostrated by:

a)    The failure to complete the federal constitutional process and establishing of a federal system through a consultative process.

b)    The President of the Republic’s inappropriate interference and hinderance of successive prime ministers and Goverments effort and process  to prepare for elections in 2016.

c)    The illegal and illegitimate announcement of a so called Election Commission, designed to accomplish an unlawful term extension.

d)    The announcement of unconstitutional and illegitimate plans and processes designed to undermine elections in 2016 and lay foundations for term extension as examplified by the Mogadishu announcement of July 28, 2015.

  1. 5.  RECOMMENDATIONS AND THE WAY FORWARD: 

Having seen, the complete disregard for the agreed Provisional Federal Constitution,

Having seen, the continued lack of implementation of the numerous agreements with the Federal Government,

 Having seen, the Federal Government responsible violent local conflicts active in country,

Having seen, the current Federal Government’s complete disregard for collective national interests,

The Government of Puntland: 

  1. Categorically states that it will not accept a term extension or a delay of the 2016 elections.
  2. Is prepared to host a Somali consultative conference on the 2016 elections and collective national interests.
  3. Is fully ready to work with all Somalis and International partners in the timely realization of an inclusive fair and transparent elections in 2016.
