Somali Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Ali on Wednesday named 18-member cabinet (pics)

Despite serious in-fighting between Somalia's leadership, Prime Minister Abidweli today named his new cabinet as required by the Kampala Accord.

Somali Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Ali on Wednesday named an 18-member cabinet after weeks of anticipation.
The prime minister who was overwhelmingly approved by the Somali parliament this month promised to form a "small and competent" government that will follow the same policies of his predecessor Mohamed Abdulahi Mohamed. In a statement emailed to the media, the new prime minister named, as expected, new faces in the cabinet which will have to be endorsed by the Somali parliament in the next few days. The Harvard-educated premier took over following the resignation by former prime minister amid rifts within the top government leaders and in line with an agreement reached in the Ugandan capital Kampala in June.
Mohamed Mohamoud haji Ibrahim was named as foreign minister and deputy prime minister and Abdisamad Moalin Mohamoud Sheikh Hassan was given the portfolio of the interior and national security. The Ministry of Finance went to Abdinasir Mohamed Abdulle. Hussein Arab Isse was named as the minister of defense and deputy prime minister of the new Somali government. The new Somali government is expected to face huge challenges as the country is suffering severe drought and famine in the south while battling Islamist insurgency. The Somali government controls only parts of the capital while Islamist rebels run much of south and center of the war-torn country. The government which has one-year term to fulfill a number of transitional tasks including the drafting of a new constitution for the country to complete the reconciliation process.
Sources close to the prime minister said the new ministers were suggested by the outgoing ministers. Not one of the 18 ministers who served in the cabinet of former Prime Minister Farmajo, who was forced to resign last month, was retained. The new cabinet is again made up of 18 members contrary to the plan proposed by Speaker Sharif Hassan who wanted 23 ministers.

The newly proposed cabinet was chosen based on the traditional clan 4.5 formula:

1 - Hawiye (President) Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed
1 - Diir
1 - Darood (Prime Minister) Prime Minister Abidweli
1 - Rahweyn (Speaker)  Sharif Hassan
.5 - minority clans

The new team, if approved, will be mandated to complete the transitional tasks and prepare for fresh elections in August 2012. The parliament is set to vote on the proposed list on Saturday, according to a senior official who spoke to terror free somalia.

May Allah bless him and give  Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre..and The Honourable Ronald Reagan
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

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

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.
