Somalia Premier forced to quit his Job .gun pointed to his head.

 we told you so PM Farmajo is gone, so May be the last hope of Somali revival

Somalia’s Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has quit, ten days after the president and speaker signed a deal agreeing to postpone elections in return for his resignation and the formation of a new cabinet.
Abdiwali Mohamed Ali, the Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, was named as acting prime minister.
President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, Parliamentary Speaker Sharif Hassan Sheikh Aden, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and the UN special envoy to Somalia, Augustine P Mahiga, all signed the deal, known as the Kampala Accord, which was aimed at ending an impasse over whether elections should be held this year.
The deal sparked massive deadly protests in Mogadishu from supporters of Farmajo, who saw the US-educated politician as the man most likely to bring peace and stability to a nation riven by two decades of conflict.
"The Kampala Accord is the reason for my resignation, since me remaining as prime minister will conflict with this," Farmajo said. "It’s wise for the interest of the people of Somalia to come first."

Ugandan pressure

After  previous General  last week get fired  for refusing  to obey orders  from  from Museveni .

Farmajo had refused to resign, saying he would respect the will of the people, but he had come under increasing pressure to abide by the agreement.On Friday, a Ugandan general flew to Mogadishu and gave Farmajo 72 hours to resign  . Uganda is a major contributor to the African Union peacekeeping force in Mogadishu. According to a cabinet minister, General Aronda Nyakairima delivered a letter from Museveni, who had pressured the Somali leaders into signing the deal, telling Farmajo he should go.Farmajo also met members of the 9,000-strong peacekeeping mission, known as AMISOM, in Villa Somalia early Sunday as the Ugandans, concerned about the protests and instability in the government, kept up the pressure on the premier. Sheikh Sharif and the AMISOM force commander were all present at the meeting where Farmajo quit.Farmajo thanked the Somali people for their support, and called for whichever government would come next to continue the fight against Islamist insurgent group al-Shabaab.The speaker had opposed a one-year extension to the government's mandate, which is due to expire in August, but agreed to back a delay in exchange for a new cabinet with positions for his allies.The US-educated Farmajo was an unknown quantity when he was appointed in October last year, taking over from Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke, who resigned after a long-running spat with Sheikh Sharif.
However, analysts say since he took over soldiers began to receive regular wages for the first time, he took a stand against widespread corruption and the government began to press al-Shabaab, gaining ground in the border regions and in the capital, helping to boost his popularity and raise hopes for the future.
"I am going to stay here in Somalia, contrary to many people's expectation that I will leave my motherland," Farmajo said. "I will stand by my people and assist the new administration."
Both Sheikh Sharif and Ali, the acting prime minister, praised Farmajo for his work.
"I am very disappointed that Farmajo is leaving office, but I hope that he will be work with the government," Ali said.

Al-Shabaab pleased with departure

Residents of Mogadishu were sad to see Farmajo go, but fatalistic after years of political squabbling. Contrary to many people’s expectation, no demonstrations were launched. Aden had returned to Mogadishu earlier in the day, and trouble was expected, as many protesters had threatened violence against him for his political machinations.
"It’s quite unfortunate to see a like Farmajo just come and go, but its normal in Somalia since no one wants a leader who is committed to Somalia,” Layla, a cloth dealer in Hamar Wayne, told Somalia Report.
Farmajo was also extremely popular with the armed forces, and some fear his departure may lead to the recent military gains being forfeited.
"Now the TFG forces may lose the newly acquired bases, since soldiers paid allegiance to Prime Minister Farmajo whom they saw as their saviour,” a retired TFG soldier guarding a lawmaker’s house told terror free somalia.
In al-Shabaab administered parts of Mogadishu, Farmajo’s resignation was welcomed by the insurgent group. Foreign al-Shabaab fighters, who led prayers in Masjid Abu Hudheyfa in the Bakara Market, were said their problems would now lessen and the Jihad would progress swiftly after the infidel and his forces “lose morale”.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
