FRESH BEGINNING CONTINUES AS PRIME MINISTER IS NAMED

New Confirmed Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon Saaid

Well there you have it, wave goodbye to the transitional (Dowlaada ku meel gaarka as we call it) era. Play time is over; we now boast a legitimate federal government in Somalia. After continuous fails and a lot of hard work from numerous transition governments, we have now the 3 major professions vacant. The President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, House of Speaker Mohamed Jawaari and a new confirmed Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon Saaid.


Mr Shirdon Saaid’s job was the last outstanding post left. Saaid, a political newcomer, has been a prominent businessman in neighbouring Kenya. It remains to be seen if he can handle the pressure of administrating Somalia with issues regarding:
Security
Terrorism
Corruption
4.5 Formula
The Sovereignty of the State
Somaliland
Piracy
And building Institutions
Supporting the IDPs

The Prime Minister and his Administration have a tough task ahead of them. But with the determination we all putting effort too, one will surely prevail. He now has, with maximum, 2 weeks to form an administration and to make his presence felt. He unquestionably has to bring in new faces that are qualified to the task. This is the key to change. We have altered and reformed with new individuals and now is the time to continue the trend.

Somalia is consisted of millions of citizens so he must question himself, why are we only faced by pupils, who have corruption circling their careers, wanting governmental posts? He has to search far and wide over the oceans to pick top candidates for positions.

Mr Prime Minister, do what is right for Somalia and never accept rewards for favours. Please realise that wealth is temporary but history is permanent.

We are willing to support the Government and we are waiting for your programs. Change has come to Somalia. Just make it the right change.

Mohamed Hassan (Dj)

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…
