Propaganda Report of Monitoring Group Somalia – Who is "Con-Artist" Lobbyist Matthew Bryden (Terror Free Somalia Foundation Fact Check )

Mogadishu (tf.sf)  Former Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo condemned the UN Monitoring Group report .  PM  said that the  report is part of the campaign of Matthew Bryden against sovereignty of Somalia.  “We understand that Bryden’s wife hails from Isaq Clan, and possesses Somaliland passport rather than Somali passport, we know that he reflects the propaganda,..propaganda against prominent Somali  people,Somali  businessmen and Somali politicians. 

its true that Bryden’s wife is a Somalilander and he is a Somaliland secessionist enclave passport holder.

Somali-land an illegal entity being created by a particular clan (Isaaq) in order to serve personal interests, and as a proxy being used by foreign powers (mainly Ethiopia) in order to keep Somalia divided and weak.
Matthew Bryden aka Matt Bryden is a Canadian expert in the horn of Africa region.  He worked with high profile organizations such as the United Nations.  Bryden campaigns fro Somaliland secession.  His wife, Ubah Bryden is from Somaliland.  They have three children, two sons and a daughter.  They reside in Nairobi. He speaks fluent Somali.  He is believed to be a front runner of Somaliland’s secession in order to keep the rest of the country in chaos, and Somaliland eventually becomes sovereign state.  He wrote book about Somaliland.
Matt Bryden was born in 1967.  He is McGill University graduate in 1988.  He is well feared since he is very influential in the international community.  Many people believe that Bryden went deep into the Somali politics.  His reports criticize about Hawiye and Darod individuals, but never mention his in-laws, Isaq, except those who publicly claimed that they are members of Al Shabab.
It is highly possible that Matt Bryden might hunt the journalist who filed this story.

Pess Release: PM Abdiwali A. Gaas denies allegations of corruption

Press Release
Office of the PM

Mogadishu-16 th July 2012, - The Office of the Prime Minister of Somalia (OPM) condemns allegations contained in news reports appearing in some of the media on a“leaked Monitoring Group's report” linking The Office of the Prime Minister to alleged corruption and misconduct.
The Office of The Prime Minister maintains that the allegations are absolutely and demonstrably false. This deliberate misinformation is intended to tarnish the good name and integrity of the Prime Minister and also constitutes defamation and libel intended to maliciously harm the hard earned reputation of the Prime Minister.
The following are some egregious statements made in these media reports that may constitute defamation and libel and that if not retracted and apologized for could result in defamation and libel law suit:
  1. “Monitoring group report provided evidence how the Prime Minister regularly sends letters to custom authorities requesting tax exemptions for companies or individual that he claims provide service to TFG.”

    As a matter of fact SEMG report does not say so. It says as follows: “30. Both the Ministry of Finance and the OAG provide poor quality reporting of TFG expenses. Not all expenses are registered, and the Monitoring Group has obtained evidence demonstrating how the Office of the President and successive Prime Ministers send letters to custom authorities requesting import tax exemptions for individual or companies that have provided services or goods to the TFG.” Prime Minister Abdiwali Gaas categorically denies ever issuing tax exemption letters on behalf of individuals or companies under false pretenses, and cannot speak for successive prime Ministers.

  2. “The report further alleges that another million from the Government of South Sudan is unaccounted and the Prime Minister’s office took its cut. The report alleges that “In early 2012, South Sudan donated, through Price Waterhouse Coopers, US$1 million to support TFG reconciliation efforts in Somalia’s newly liberated areas. A senior TFG official confirmed to the Somalia-Eretria Monitoring Report (SEMG) that the TFG did indeed receive the US$1 million from South Sudan.59 According to internal TFG documents obtained by the SEMG, the PM instructed the Finance Ministry to disburse the funds directly to individual government officials, MPs and political figures, including US$121,700 to his own office.”
The Prime Minister’s office clarifies that the said US$1 million donated to support TFG reconciliation efforts in Somalia’s newly liberated areas was in fact disbursed and spent on reconciliation efforts in newly recovered areas including Gedo, Bay/Bakool, Hiiraan and Central Somalia areas and evidence of such is available. Additional moneys were spent on political outreach to the regions as mandated under the Road Map protocols. The very fact that the SEMG acknowledges that this particular fund was channeled through Price Waterhouse Coopers demonstrates that the Prime Minister conducts government transactions in a transparent manner.
The Prime Ministers’ distinguished and outstanding contribution to Anti-corruption efforts on the national, regional and international levels is well recognized by Somalis and the following lend credit to those efforts.
  1. The Prime Minister has spearheaded various reports in uncovering graft including co-operating with The Monitoring Group in the compilation of its report.

  2. The Prime Minister instituted an Anti-Corruption Task Force that is currently operational.

  3. The SEMG reports variously refer the Joint Management Finance Board. It is worth noting that the JMFB is the brain child of the Prime Minister. He championed it during the period he was a Cabinet Minister and helped turn it into a reality during his tenure as Prime Minster.

  4. The Prime Minister has opposed the release of printed moneys in Sudan pending the institution of proper sound monetary policy, a fact corroborated in the SEMG report.
The PMO takes great exception to the careless and irresponsible publication of false reports that can create wrong impressions and perceptions thereby misleading the Somali people. The PMO further notes that the media bear responsibilities of ethical journalism and as such must refrain from acts of defamation and libel that can cause harm to people’s reputation.
We urge media houses to liaise with the Office of the Prime Minister and authenticate stories relating to His office before going to print. We question the motive behind the publication of this “leaked” report before awaiting the conclusion and distribution of the final report and we call for the upholding of professionalism and objectivity in journalism.
H.E Abdiweli Ali Gaas reassures the Somali People and development partners of his personal commitment in ensuring transparent and accountable utilization of donor funds especially at this critical time in the history of Somalia.

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.
