Eid mubarak!

I wish all my readers a prosperous Eid filled with joy.

Eid Mubarak to you all and many more

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.

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…

26 CANDIDATES, 3 DAYS TO GO

Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country -John F Kennedy
Well, so many delays, roadblocks and obstacles where put in front of us. But its looks as if things are going to plan, but behind schedule. But other than that, the selected MPs, who were sworn in the day the presidential election was suppose to happen, 20th August, have a tough challenge ahead of them. 26 Presidential candidates, each paying $10,000 each for the registration fee are now fighting for the top seat. You may have read our article; HOUSE OF SPEAKER SEAT CHOSEN, HOW? This fully explained the procedures on the election.
You see, the predicament we are now facing is picking a person in charge who will not win on the amount he/she’s has paid behind closed doors, but of their leadership skills. But if we think positively, this is a remarkable moment. This is an occasion Somalia has to demonstrate we are capable of changing the path of our future. We must now all drive forward togethe…
