Somalia's upcoming permanent government is supposed to be a model for national reconciliation and good governance; largely made up of former militia members, intellectual Diasporas, and members of Puntland and Galmudug states. Instead, warlords and corrupt leaders have been quick to set aside their differences in favor of future power sharing, where the bitter pill of sovereignty is bypassed, and the result is mere legal fiction. Apparently, doing so helps them to strategize upcoming loot, on signing away the country’s future, in return for personal financial gain.
