New Somali Prime Minister faces uncertainty as new crises unfold in the Parliament,Somalia is moving towards a catastrophe, a return to dictatorship

H .E Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed


 Mogadishu (terrorfreesomalia) – With the recent appointment of Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed as Somali prime minister a little of hope was restored for the betterment of Somalia. This however has started to be overshadowed by an ongoing disagreement within the Somali parliament regarding whether previous ministers can be included in the new cabinet.

The Somali parliament has a history of disagreement and feuds, the last one which ended in the removal of former Prime Minister Shirdon after a no-confidence vote early last month. He held his post a little over one year. In addition to that in the last decade the parliament has had ten different prime ministers.
Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed was given thirty days since he assumed office to appoint a new cabinet, however due to speculated internal dissent the Prime Minister required a ten day extension, which will end on the 10th of January. Today the Somali parliament was expected to vote regarding a motion whether the new cabinet could include minister from the former cabinet or not, however before the voting could even proceed twelve MPs objected to this motion citing the fact that it’s unconstitutional do to so and that the Prime Minister had the freedom to chose whom he saw fit. Thus,  these few MPs pushed forward another motion promoting that the Prime Minister had the liberty to chose whom we wanted. Surprisingly in the midst of this and instead of debating it, the parliament speaker declared to vote on the two motions themselves. The result, 113 voted in favor of the Prime Minister having the liberty chose whom he wants, even if they were ministers in the previous cabinet, while 99 voted against. To simplify, it seems that the President will be able to choose whomever he wants, even if they were ministers from the previous cabinet.
The whole issue on whether ministers from the previous cabinet can be part of the upcoming cabinet stems from people not trusting some of the ministers whom are close to the President and are often labeled as the “Damul Jadid inner circle”. In fact former General Mohamed Nur Galal who served during the era of Siad Bare has labelled the serving security minister Abdikarim Guled as “being dangerous to security himself”. He further added that “He (Guled) has no knowledge of security, he’s just a schoolteacher, being security minister requires many prerequisites.”
Some sources have suggested that this was an expected move, as they believe that the ministers loyal to the president have been paying and bribing members of parliament to help them stay in power. Members of the parliament who spoke to terror free Somalia  on the condition of anonymity said that “there’s still hope to reverse this motion & that this wasn’t the end of it”. They further added that “when the Prime Minister names his cabinet ministers he’ll need at least two thirds of the parliament to agree with him, what we saw today was way less than that, to add to that we doubt the people would want to see same the same ministers again whom doubt had been cast on.”
With current political differences and reports of further motions regarding the same issue, it seems as if Somalia is in for yet another bumpy ride.

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.
