Somalia: Justice and reconciliation casualty of clan morass

The setting up of local public administration in the regions of Gedo, Lower Jubba and Middle Jubba yet to be entirely liberated from the Al Qaeda affiliated Al Shabab has generated passionate debate for four reasons. First, as result of clan based federalism, it stirred the majority and minority struggle between communities in those regions [...]

Ethiopia, Kenya decided to takeover Somalia

In implementing their recently concluded regional security cooperation agreement and reaffirming their indefinite military occupation of Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya have decided to takeover and perhaps later annex Somalia under the cover of the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD).  Since only Ethiopia exercises uncontested power within the Organization, on December 6, 2012, IGAD Joint Committee [...]

London Conference: Somalia needs sovereign and effective Governance

For the first time in 22 years, the leader of western donor country, the British Prime Minister David Cameron announced on November 14, 2011, the hosting of an International Conference on ‘Somalia’ not fiefdoms in London.

Venal TFIs leaders shouldn’t be allowed to privatize Somalia’s sovereignty

After seven years, the Transitional Federal Institutions (TFIs) that formed the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia (TFG) have irreversibly morphed into the property of three venal leaders used by foreign powers, particularly Ethiopia.

UNPOS and Ethiopia killed the hope for sovereign Governance in Somalia

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 [...]

Kampala Accord infringes on Somalia’s sovereignty and healing prospect

The Kampala Accord (KA), drafted under the direction of President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and Dr. Augustine Mahiga, the Special Representative of Secretary General (SRSG) resembles the colonial treaties signed by Somali Traditional Leaders for personal gains or rivalry.  President Sheikh Sharif and Speaker Sharif Hassan signed the KA on June 9, 2011 in Kampala, [...]

International Community verdict to end the transition period will worsen Somali crisis
