PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS - SOMALIA AUGUST 2012

22/06/2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS - SOMALIA AUGUST 2012



 The Transitional Federal Government of Somalia's(TFG) time is coming to an end. What have they achieved and What is the future outcome of Somalia?

 Recently, as August 2011 up until the day I am writing this blog(22/06/2012, Mogadishu, Somalia's Capital has seen major changes to its Terror and Destruction over the last 22 years of Civil War. Somalia has moved over from Clan based battles to Ideology Warfare. It has reached to the point where one is considered Disbeliever just for listening to music. And where another is labelled an "Al-Shabab", A bunch of Criminals looking for Fame and are being instigated by a third party to cause havoc and terror among Somali's, Just for loving the Religion of the Almighty Allah.



Shiekh Sharif Shiekh Ahmed


 Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, Somalia's Interim President, Has in my opinion done a lot for us, As Nation of Somali's. One can speculate how no real change has arrived in Somalia but you have to give credit to the fact that Sheikh Ahmed has indeed brought relatively calm era in Mogadishu, Somalia's Capital and once known as the "Worlds Most Dangerous City".

 Somalia has reached as low as possible gravity can take you. If you dig deep into the soil of planet earth, one can only go so low to the point where there isn't any lower place to go. We have sunk the bottom but slowly, and gradually, we are now starting to float up. It may take years or it may take Century's, One thing is for sure, we HAVE to go up.

 The major obstacle we had was clan based rivalry's. At present, The love for our country is slowly but surely erasing this disease of "Clan Loyalty". My main focus is Mogadishu because if Mogadishu see's peace, its like domino, it will spread across the whole nation.

 I remember a friend of mine, who recently traveled to India told me about an incident he witnessed in Delhi. 2 young men, 1 Muslim and one Sikh, had a dispute and where about to come to an altercation. A old man, who watching the whole scene, couldn't keep quite any longer and stood up, Passionately singing the Indian National Anthem. With a few seconds of him singing, the 2 men who nearly came to blows both started crying and hugged each other as respect for Mother India.

 Now, Can we see that at home? I'm sure we can.

 4 More Years Mr President Sheikh Ahmed

The 8 commandments for Diaspora on returning home

1.Stop the Arrogance
However smart and confidence you may feel, note that someone else is taking this as arrogance. Sometimes it’s best to let others shines so do not make the mistake of thinking that you know everything about everything just because you had access to Google for the last 10 years. Some youths here carry 4 or 5 degrees and did this in a warzone. Just because you had a western education and speak with a good English/American accent does not make you the messiah Somalis have been waiting for.
2.Learn Af-Somali
This is crucial for your survival (in oral sense). People will look at you and judge you. Make sure your Af-Somali game is stepped up and ready to converse at any given time. You should already know that we are an oral nation so having some type of ammo (Not guns) is important. Kids as young as 8 would test you and so would Caasi (Bus) drivers. You must be able to reply as fast as possible without any hiccup.

Somali Youth - Challenges and Actions

Background
Somali youth are at present face huge task in trying to restore order back to their beloved country.This is not one with a simple duty but with many challenges and also countless rewards if successful. With over 75% of the population, Somalia has seen its youth participate in both positive aspects of the country and also negative. Youth have witnessed themselves being sidelined in decision-making forums while at the same time at the frontline in combat defending leaders who clearly have shown to have no regards for their wellbeing and future.
History tells us the Youth of Somalia have been the driving force in establishing the state from colonial rule. 13 young activists formed the celebrated Somali Youth League (SYL) in which they had protested, lobbied for the rights of the nation. All over the country, SYL members are seen as iconic and were the drive for the nation as they had been pivotal to see Somalia with self-rule away from British and Italian ruling. It was a move…

Your contribution will be much appreciated...

I cannot comprehend my reasons of not seeking any effort on updating my prize possession (for me anyways) of Moga Tribune for over a year. So much had happened with other commitments arising (and more commitments) and allowing for this blog to quietly hit the endless storage centre of Google archive. Until, that is, of having a rather intriguing discussion recently.
As I set myself out for lunch with the family at the beautiful resort of Lido Beach one afternoon, I had, from the corner of my eyes, caught two youths halfway through a discussion with a heavy usage of finger pointing. Now, three thoughts had raced upon my mind when the finger pointing had refused to back down.
I either have:
A: Family member(s). B: Social Media friend(s).
C: Unwanted trouble. (You can always expect the un-expected).
I sat down cautiously with the family while staring optimistically through my Ray Bans in order to figure out this far-away conversation while over-lining option C out of the listed expectations (t…
