Mr Sharif at the United Nations General Assembly

Current President, Sheikh Sharif Ahmed, held a congregation for all his supporters  at the newly opened City Palace Hotel, which drew a whole lot of all-stars. amid the crowd, were MPs, former leaders, comedians and members of all tribes across the country. Former Prime Minister, Mohamed Ali Gedi, Alhus Sunna Wal Jameyca leader AbdulKadir Maacalin Nur, Top Police Generals, Army Generals and current mayor Mohamud Tarsan. Also in attendance were former rivals for the seat but who now are pushing Sheikh Sharif for Another term in the seat.

What stood out from the crowd was the amount of people who came from the Diaspora to give their backing for Mr Sharif. And as usual our women, god bless them, kept up the spirit in the hall with poetry which constantly got Huge applause each time they sung it even to the point Mr Sharif had to get involved and sing along.

He came up at the end to finalise the gathering. Put up quite a few jokes here and there. The biggest shock came when his wife, live on television, collapsed due to dehydration. It was announced that she was tired, due to the gathering lasting since the morning up until way through the night. She got a big cheer as she made her way out to get some fresh air.

The main event for the “Blockbuster” event has arrived. The selling of one another is finished. This is it. Tomorrow will be a challenging test for us Somalis as a nation. It is the first step of our revival. The real work starts on Tuesday, this will be the day we see how the losers of the election will take their defeats.

But let’s be optimistic, change has arrived and it is here to stay, regardless of your feeling.

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

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…

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…
