The Illegal and dangerous Kampala Accord: Is Sharif Hassan less Somali than Sharif Ahmed? Pro-Farmaajo Demo in Abudwaaq

“When the boots of the international community is on your neck it doesn’t matter

whether it is left or the right”

For the first time in the past two decades the Somali people marched in the streets of some districts of Mogadishu protesting, in the false assumption that they have a government, against what mistakenly appeared to them as a shadowy agreement signed by Somalia’s top politicians under the auspices of the international community (IC) that keeps them in office. The president and the speaker of a sovereign democratic state, of which Somalia can’t be classified as one, have no right to sign a document of that significance without the explicit approval of the parliament and the government but in trusteeship Somalia all disputes are, by and large, referred back to the (IC) and their judgment was always final without appeal and this case is no different as there are numerous similar precedents on record.

The endorsement and backing of the agreement in the case of Illegal and dangerous.Kampala Accord rightly rests with President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda whose boys stand between the presidential palace and Al Shabab Al Mujahidin, Premier Zenawe of Ethiopia who has been running the country for the past two decades, and Amb. Mahiga who is an international diplomat tasked by the UN to oversee the Somalia project. To deny the Iinternational Cummunity that puts the unscrupulous politicians in the presidential Palace, pays and protects them, to have the last say appears to be too many thinkers as midsummer dream.

The agreement, as it stands, appears to the novice in Somalia’s politics, to have been negotiated in the firm assumption that the Somalis are so thoughtless that anything can pass right under their noses without them taking any notice. The current anger and protest lead by the popular uprising June 9 group, in the streets of Mogadishu remains to be seen if it at all reaches fruition. TFG’s army, Police and all sections of the society that live in the government-held districts and far beyond joined hands in a two-day rally to show their disapproval of the dismissal of Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed “Farmaajo”, but the repulsive truth is the Kampala Accord is too strong to be reversed by the poor and disorganized people who are under the mercy of the same IC itself.

The bickering exercise between the executive and the legislative body is not a new development but has been there since the inauguration of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG). It was the only trade the TFG perfected and was centered all the time upon the power greed of individuals. To reach the top jobs, the two Sharifs, like their other friends in the den, went through all sorts of indescribable abominations and showed time and again that they have neither creed nor pride to lead a nation so what is the fuss if the speaker calls the shots this time? In the world of the TFG, irrespective of their performance, Prime Ministers, speakers, presidents come and go as fast as the speed a bullet travels in the air and the tradition will stay in place until Somalis come to their senses and sort out their differences.

The fact that their names, the Sharif’s, sounds and tastes like Saudi Arabian, were friends for so long, stole so much together and are still the only choice on the menu then why not pick the untested one who has Puntland and Ahlu Sunna under his wings?
President Sharif Ahmed is famous for his lack of foresight and impaired decision taking while his counterpart, speaker Sharif Hassan, in contrast has both qualities in plenty but used to take pleasure in using his talent in the creation of chaos and mayhem. Maybe he will use his talent differently this time once he secured the top job which is his as per the terms of the accord.

The beautiful project Somalia – everyone is a winner!

“I am delighted that we have managed to overcome the deadlock in such a constructive way,” said Augustine P. Mahiga, the United Nations’ political envoy for Somalia.

According to Mahiga’s statement, the deadlock was about the extension of the life of the government and that of the parliament but was not about a choice between the two feuding politicians. Whoever comes as a winner has to dance according to the tune of the IC and fortunately none can throw back the contract as so many are lining up to replace them instantly without a second thought.

Ethiopian prime minister is rubbing his hands with glee because the speaker of the house, who is Ethiopia’s poodle, finally has walked out of Kampala with his head high. President Ahmed, by signing the agreement, also signed away his powers and voluntarily accepted to be reduced effectively to a dummy-status but the good news is no one will lose sleep over his demise – his grandfather’s bones were exhumed from Mahadday and bagged recently by Al Shabab’s grave demolition squad.

Uganda’s Museveni will keep his troops in Mogadishu at least for a year and so will have not only cash flowing in to his coffers but will lend him stronger leverage in the international political circles where political governance is an issue. The question that resonates in the minds of the Ugandan elite is the government’s claim that the Army was sent to fight terrorism but if that is the case, then why the Americans and the Europeans abstained from sending their army to Somalia when they dispatched so many to Iraq and Afghanistan? For America and Europe to throw their dollars to Somalia in exchange of dumping in Ugandan and Burundian troops ,where all other Africa countries declined, only sheds light as to why Musevani’s Uganda is the only country in the world where walking to work is a crime.

Ambassador Mahiga will most probably be promoted because through his good offices he secured plenty of work for the lords of the poverty industry. The world’s largest refugee camp was declared to have run out of space – thanks to the consequences of recent barbaric wars in Gedo and Lower Jubba.

Conclusion: - keeping the status quo of one step forward two steps backward

Despite the setback they suffered in Mogadishu Al Shabab will stay in business for the foreseeable future. AMISOM forces paid a very expensive price in moving Al Shabab from one trench to the next and so will have no more appetite to chase the elusive AL Shabab. Al Shabab have changed their war tactic to hit and run which makes them rather more lethal by the day- The latest casualty is the TFG’s Interior Minister killed by his own niece. Al Shabab is strong enough to keep the TFG and the international community engaged in project Somalia well beyond the one year mandate – the future of project Somalia is as bright as ever.

No matter how much Mogadishu and Somalia love Prime Minister Mohamed Farmaajo and no matter how much he achieved during his short time in Office, sorry to say, but the decision to keep or fire him rests squarely with the IC which has an agenda of its own. The only one, among the whole IC members, who has the Somali interest in his heart, is President Ismail Omar Guelleh of Djibouti, and unfortunately he is no match to Uganda and Ethiopia; the heavy-weight leaders of the region. The only way out for this nation if it is to be saved from the disastrous condition that it was in for the past 20 years, is for its sons and daughters to take it back from the wolves that are feasting on it and their domestic poodles and abandon for good the petty politics that have destroyed this once great state and restore afresh its status among the family of nations.

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.
