Clan federalism tears Somalia apart

Jan 30, 2013
Clan politics, rivalry and hatred have ruined the social bond, moral principles and trust among Somalis who share common language, culture, territory, history, and religion. Now, three political manifestations -secession, clan based federalism and unitary decentralized political system- divide them and are obstacle to the recovery of the lost nation of Somalia. The Provisional Constitution (PC) rejects...

KENYA ON THE WRONG TRACK IN SOMALIA:

Dec 12, 2012
After intense fighting in Southern Somalia for the past eighteen months, the Somali forces and backed by Kenyan military have liberated kismayo from Al-Shabaab and its environs. However, we have witnessed attempts by ‘some elements’ to establish a parallel government in Southern Somalia. As a result, we have heard heated debates about Lower Juba Region and in particular Kismayo and judging from...

Will Istanbul Conference engender a common vision for Somalia?

Jun 2, 2012
  The succor of Turkish government to the people of Somalia has caused different reactions. First, it has uplifted the hope and spirit of the Somali people afflicted by the combination of civil war, famine, brutal rule of Al-Shabab, the abuses of corrupted Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the dividing and disempowering policies of the international community. Second, it has irritated the...

Draft Constitution: An instrument for balkanization and brutalization of Somalia

Apr 30, 2012
The people of Somalia face the looming dreadful reality of becoming a vanished nation/country because of the Draft Constitution soon to be rubber stamped through fraudulent political and legal process. As usual, the International Community and the media will join force to publicize the new constitution as a success story for Somalia. In contrast, the Draft Constitution is an instrument for balkanization...

London Conference stripped Somalia of its indivisibility, sovereignty and polity

Mar 1, 2012
February 28, 2012 The communiqué of February 23 Conference on Somalia, dominated by the International Contact Group (ICG) and the Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia fell far short of all expectations. The promised new approach or step-change by the British leaders to tackle the root causes of insecurity and lack of functional government responsible for the inexorable decline of 20...

London Conference: Somalia’s expectation for self governance disregarded

Feb 4, 2012
February 3, 2012 So far, the consultations for the preparation of the London Conference on Somalia have been described as mere presentations of seven pre-determined themes while the views and suggestions of the Somali participants have been characterized as ambitious, opposing, and non-operational. Sure, the Somali views are diverse, opposing, not filtered or unharmonized but they share the deep desire...

Somalia’s Roadmap Conspiracy unveiled in Garowe

Dec 28, 2011
Holding a Somali conference in Garowe, the capital of Puntland State was high praise for the local population and opportunity for all Somalis to engage a genuine national reconciliation. Puntland State duly represents the interests of one sub-clan of one of the 4.5 Somali clan families. However, the population of Puntland State has no responsibility for the flaws and self serving outcome of a conference...

SOMALIA: NO MORE HYBRIDS OF EMBAGATHY AND DJIBOUTI PARLIAMENTARIANS.

Dec 21, 2011
Somalia, has suffered over more than two decades of wars, famine, drought, malnutrition, diseases, exodus of hundred thousands of refugee living in squalid camps in neighboring countries, hundred thousands of internally displaced people uprooted by fighting and as a result many lives have been lost. Are we happy where we are? In my view, it has to be a bad leadership and there is an African Proverb...

Alarming ramifications from the Kenyan war against Somalia

Nov 13, 2011
The Kenyan war against Somalia is producing alarming ramifications that would worsen instability, animosity and misery rather than peace and prosperity in the region. The post invasion shuttle diplomacy of the Kenyan Officials did not allay the deep opposition against its invasion of Somalia. Facts indicate that Kenya planned since 2009 to take control of Jubba-Land (Gedo, Lower Jubba, and Middle Jubba)...

UNPOS and Ethiopia killed the hope for sovereign Governance in Somalia

Sep 14, 2011
September 13, 2011   Reflecting upon the charade that surrounded the UN Consultative Meeting (UN-CM) held at Mogadishu Airport at a time when the entire Somalia is overwhelmed by the worst drought and famine in 60 years, two questions came into my mind: (1) Why the United Nations Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS) has decided to treat Somalis as ‘ignoramus characters’ who could not understand...

March 29, 2011 The parliamentary coup in progress in Mogadishu has eclipsed all other important topics in Somalia.

WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT THE SPEAKER AND PARLIAMENT? | Dr Ulusso

Mar 15, 2011
Transparency International (TI), the global ant-graft watch-dog, has placed Somalia the most corrupt country in the world. Out of the 178 in the latest global ranking released on Tuesday, October, 26, 2010, Somalia slipped one position down from its 177th ranking in 2009 and at the time only less corrupt than Afghanistan. I say, “There has to be a change of mind-set and change of guard in Somalia”....

Extension of TFP Term heralds catastrophe for Somalia | Uluso

Feb 17, 2011
February 16, 2011 – It’s interesting to witness the intense vilification of the International Community (IC) by Ethiopia and Members of the Djibouti Transitional Federal Parliament (TFP-D) after the IC objected the three-year- extension of TFP-D’s tenure from August 22, 2011. Ethiopia and Djibouti (IGAD) encouraged and defended the self-serving TFP’s decision. MP Hassan Abshir (former...

The “TFG of Technocrats” isn’t all that different from its predecessors

Jan 27, 2011
Clearly, the performance of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Technocrats has disappointed those who had hope for a fundamental change and held dear the revival of the “Somali Republic” on a sustainable foundation. The TFG of Technocrats has created more problems and distresses rather than confidence, accountability and hopeful future. In effect, it isn’t all that different from...

Asked the US leadership as a precondition for stabilizing and rebuilding Somalia | Uluso

Jun 23, 2010
One more time, the International Community (IC) led by the United States is confronted with the urgent necessity to develop a “comprehensive strategy” for Somalia after the counter-terrorism-centered strategy, primarily delegated to Ethiopia (IGAD), has utterly failed. This necessity existed when Obama Administration came into office. Indeed, Prof Ken Menkhaus wrote in February 2009, “While...

Return of impugned Speaker spells more betrayals and troubles for Somalia

Jun 5, 2010
Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden, former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, has usurped the Speaker’s position of the Transitional Federal Parliament (TFP) through a deplorable process that lacked concern for rule of law and good governance. This comes in the light of publicized allegations of political scandals and embezzlement of public funds against him as former Speaker of Parliament and...
