FINAL NOTE TO THE SELECTING MPs


This is the moment. The moment we have been praying for. 21 years of non-government problems and war with famine. 2 decades of our lives have been wasted on moving from one country to another. We have been given a chance by Allah to set our issues straight. Over 200+ MPs will secretly choose a President to lead Somalia.


Port of Mogadishu
There has been a lot of behind-the-scenes talk of candidates buying the seat and offering compensation in return for a vote. I pray to Allah that the MP’s realise they have the trust of the whole nation. Think before you vote. You are playing with our future. All eyes are fixed on you. Do not let us down like previous failed MPs who had only corruption on their mind. We are counting on you to select a fair leader with your hearts. Money comes and goes but a great leader can give every single Somali a brighter future. We have natural resources which have still not been found. We have Gas reserves, Oil, the longest coastline in Africa. We have been blessed to be located in a strategic position on the horn of Africa. When ships head for Europe, instead of going around South Africa, they cut from the Gulf of Aden which saves many months for them. The Gulf of Aden belongs to us.


With a maximum population of 15 Million Somalis, there was a recent study which was published that stated, with Somalia’s natural reserves, each Somali worldwide can get a share of at least 2 Million Dollars excluding the resources which can go back into the country. This is a staggering figure and we all just pray to Allah that, come tomorrow, the MPs refuse any cash offers but vote with a clear conscious.  
If they vote wisely, we can all prosper as nations who have suffered enough. Somalia was once the might of Africa, whether it came down to military, production or state of living. Mogadishu was the top holiday destination in Africa. We had it all but lost it in a moment of panic.

Mogadishu - 1988
Thanks to all our prayers, the good days are surely on the comeback. Allah has guided us to finally think straight and to fix this problem. I want to end this note with the now historic speech:

"Ask not what your country can do for you - Ask what you can do for your Country"
                                                     - John F Kennedy 1961

SOMALIA HAA NOLAATO! (LET SOMALIA LIVE!)

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…
