Somalia: Somaliland president will "take care of" former SNM commrades

Commenting on the clan make-up of the Somaliland cabinet appointed by the new president, Ahmed Mohamed Mahamoud  (aka Siiilaanyo), the  Somali journalist Bashir Sheikh Omar Goth  told the VOA Somali Service that less than 30% of the new cabinet “belong to non-Isaaq clans” who  did not support the  now-defunct Somali National Movement (SNM), one of the clan-based opposition groups that failed to form a national  government after the overthrow of the military dictatorship in 1991. Is it too early to mark Siilaanyo down for the cabinet he put together one day after he was sworn in as the fourth president of Somaliland?

Three main  ministries — Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and  Ministry of Finance—  are headed  by men from the same clan  but under president  Dahir Riyale Kahin the three ministries were headed by three men from the same clan.  During the elections campaign, president Siilaanyo vowed his party, Kulmiye, would appoint ministers on the basis of competence not on the basis of clan representation.Read More

Top US diplomat for Africa, Ambassador Johnnie Carson, at a press conference in Kampala on Tuesday, outlined Washington’s key involvement and strategies in Africa. Daily Monitor’s Senior Reporter Tabu Butagira attended the briefing, and below, brings an abridged version starting with what Ambassador Cason said African Heads of State agreed on Somalia during a closed-door session on Monday.
We did hold a very lengthy meeting to talk about Somalia; to express our growing concern about the situation in that country. Somalia is a problem on three dimensions and levels: A domestic problem of an imploded state with a very weak central government with lack of capacity to deliver services and a large number of internally displaced persons.
It’s also an enormous regional challenge because of the large number of its refugees in Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Tanzania, causing enormous social burdens and the collapse of the Somali state has resulted in high levels of smuggling of major contrabands and movement of weapons across borders.

Somalia is also a problem due to the emergence of piracy that affects commerce over the Red Sea. We note with great concern that Somalia has become host to a number of violent extremists and we have seen that extremism play itself out in the July 11 bomb attacks in Kampala. Read More

  Somalia’s government has hailed the recent decision by the African Union to beef up its force in Mogadishu in an effort to boost security in Somalia and the entire region.  The African Union has agreed to add about 4,000 peacekeepers to Somalia -- for a total of about 8,000.

New Somaliland president sworn in

HARGEISA, Somalia — The newly-elected president of Somalia's northern breakaway state of Somaliland was sworn in Tuesday following June polls widely acclaimed as peaceful and democratic.
Outgoing president Dahir Riyale Kahin handed over power to Ahmed Mohamed Silanyo during a ceremony at the presidential palace in the capital Hargeisa.
"I solemnly transfer power to the new president, my brother Ahmed Silanyo, who defeated me in the recent elections," said Riyale, who had been in power since 2002.
"I will work with him by giving my support and I call upon all of you to unite in his support," he added. "There is a huge and difficult task ahead of our brother so let us help him succeed in his work."Read More

Current news from the European Union

ublished on Tuesday, July 27, 2010 under Humanitarian Aid
The European Commission has adopted a 35 million euro funding decision to support humanitarian activities in Somalia. The decision adopted will address a wide range of relief interventions in sectors such as health, nutrition, food aid/food security, water and sanitation, as well as non-food shelter, disaster risk reduction, logistics, security, and the coordination of partner operations.
It is estimated that approximately 3,200,000 people, about 42% of the population of Somalia, would need emergency humanitarian assistance and livelihood support in the first half of 2010. and the situation does not seem to improve in the second half of this year 2010 according to field assessments.
The Commission recognises the complexity of the situation and the need for assistance in multiple sectors, as well as mainstreaming disaster risk reduction activities in order to reinforce the resilience and coping mechanisms of the affected people. The situation on the ground remains extremely difficult and dangerous for aid agencies and their ability to access and operate in Somalia remains severely constrained, especially in the central and southern regions of the country.Read More

African Union pledges to reinforce its Somalia force

African Union leaders have agreed to reinforce the AU peacekeeping force in Somalia to tackle al-Shabab militants.
At a summit in Uganda, they approved a request to send 2,000 more troops to the Somali capital Mogadishu.
Rules of engagement are to be changed to allow the troops to fire first if they are facing imminent attack.
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni had wanted a tougher mandate to "eliminate" the al-Qaeda linked group that allowed forces to go on the offensive.
He told the BBC that AU peacekeepers were "confused" by the current mandate.

African Union Seeks Troops to Halt `Taliban-Style' Safe Haven

African Union leaders are discussing this week the dispatch of more soldiers to Somalia to stop Islamic insurgents from creating a “Taliban-style” safe haven for militants, officials and analysts said.
Government leaders from AU member states started a three- day meeting yesterday in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, that is focusing on strengthening a peacekeeping mission in Somalia two weeks after the al-Shabaab group said it detonated two bombs in the city that killed 76 people. The U.S. says al-Shabaab is a terrorist organization with links to al-Qaeda.
“Let us now act in concert and we’ll sweep them from Africa,” Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said yesterday in his opening speech to the summit. “Let them go back to Asia and the Middle East where I understand some of them come from.” Read More

In Summary
  • There’s light at the end of the tunnel. I hope it is daylight and not lights of an approaching train

Mohamed Ali Nur, Somalia’s Ambassador to Kenya, probably has the least attractive job in the country. He represents a nation that is overwhelmingly viewed as a burden and possible menace to his hosts.
He has to deal with the latent hostility of the citizens of the host country, while balancing that against the demands of the hundreds of thousands of his countrymen who are in Kenya legally or, in the case of a substantial percentage, illegally.Read More

Somalia: Washington’s Response to the Kampala Bombings - Continued Procrastination


By: Dr. Michael A. Weinstein

Analysis of Washington’s statements following the July 11 World Cup bombings in Kampala leads to the conclusion that the United States is determined to persist in its interminable procrastination over what to do about Somalia.

Washington’s inability to form a coherent policy towards Somalia has undermined its interests in the Horn of Africa, allowing a civil war to deepen in Somalia to the point at which Washington’s adversary, the revolutionary Islamist Harakat al-Shabaab Mujahideen (H.S.M.), calculated that it was in its interest to strike directly at Uganda, one of the contributors to the African Union peacekeeping mission in Mogadishu (AMISOM). For Washington, the Kampala bombings were an embarrassment, not the crisis and shock that they were in East Africa. The bombings simply showed more slippage in Somalia; Washington had no intentions of getting decisively involved in Somalia – it faced a public relations problem of how to appear to be playing while remaining on the sidelines conducting its permanent policy review that never seems to end.

The Development of Washington’s Response

Washington’s first response to the bombings came from Under-Secretary of State for Africa Johnnie Carson, who is the point man for Somalia policy. Carson denounced H.S.M., which he likened to a “localized cancer” that had “metastasized into a regional crisis … that has bled across borders and is now infecting the international community.” Let us note that Carson is demonizing H.S.M. here and depersonalizing them by calling them a disease. This is not the language of the diplomat but of the rabble rouser. It was simply politically necessary for Washington to express outrage.Read More

Uganda: Al Shabaab Will Regret - Museveni

Kampala — BY attacking Uganda, Somali reactionary groups have made their own situation worse and Uganda will pursue them, President Yoweri Museveni has said. Suspected suicide bombers struck on July 11 at the Ethiopian Village restaurant and the Kyadondo Rugby Club, killing about 76 soccer fans watching the 2010 World Cup final match.
The Al Shabaab militants in Somalia claimed responsibility for the attacks, saying it was retaliation on Uganda for sending troops on a peace-keeping mission in Somalia.
"The Somalia reactionary groups, supported by foreign leaders, have attacked us many times and we have defeated them," Museveni stated in an article sent to Sunday Vision.Read More

In Somalia, Talk to the Enemy

IN 2006, the Bush administration declared Somalia the latest front in the war on terrorism: a newly influential movement, the Union of Islamic Courts, was suspected of playing host to Al Qaeda there. When this union took over the capital in June 2006, the United States tried to coax moderates within it to enter a dialogue with Somalia’s official government, a toothless institution that was exiled from the capital. But by December of that year, when the Islamic courts seemed about to take down the government entirely, neighboring Ethiopia convinced United States officials that allowing the courts to control Somalia would be tantamount to handing the country to Al Qaeda.

Militant Islam on the rise in West Africa


A market scene in Bama, Borno state, Nigeria, on May 19, 2009, clearly showing the pervasive influence of Islam in northern Nigeria.

Militant Islam on the rise in West Africa
By Timothy Kalyegira
This week's standoff between the Nigerian government in the northern, mainly Muslim state of Borno and a militant group called the Boko Haram, has brought into focus a growing trend of militant activity in North Africa and parts of the mainly Muslim nations that once formed the Mali and Songhai empires of 16th century Africa and today are the states of Mali and Niger.

On Thursday July 30, the leader of the Islamic militant group, Boko Haram sect, a semi-literate man called Mohammed Yesufu, was killed in a shootout between his men and Nigerian security agents.Read More

A good Muganda is a dead one – Milton Obote?

The above statement will go down in Ugandan history as the most controversial and offensive ever made. Did the later former president Milton Obote ever make such a statement? If so where? If not, who did? The answer will surprise many Ugandans.

In this special report, never-before-published detail and analysis are presented into the origins of the most notorious statement in Ugandan history.

The statement, “A good Muganda is a dead one”, further stirred up great anger toward Obote among the Baganda and was a factor in rallying armed Baganda opposition to the second UPC government after 1980.

Obote consistently denied ever uttering or writing that statement. UPC officials have at various times issued challenges for anybody to provide proof that Obote made the statement and if so, where he might have made it.

Already Obote was a much-resented national figure in Buganda following the stand-off between the central government and the Buganda kingdom in May 1966. Read More

Is there anything new about OLF's call for alliance?

Following its 4th regular session early this month, the OLF National Council issued a communiqué wherein it calls upon “all the forces opposed to the dictatorial regime of the TPLF to struggle for liberation, freedom, democracy, the rule of law, peace, and prosperity.” The communiqué states that there is “no more option left except to rise up in unison and struggle to get rid of the tyrannical minority rule.”
To this end, the Council instructs to “set our priorities in order and forge a meaningful alliance against the TPLF rule.” Then the Communiqué states that OLF is ready for “a meaningful cooperation and alliance with serious political organizations fighting and struggling for liberation democracy, the rule of law, and human rights and human dignity for all the peoples in Ethiopia.”
Is there anything new or grand about the above pronouncement? Does one see any change in form or substance that could make this communiqué a different read from what one can glean from OLF’s mission and policy statements on the OLF website? Nope. The So-called Council is still singing from the same old song book. OLF still maintains that the Oromo people are a people in Ethiopia, not a people of Ethiopia. The not so-subtle difference between the notions of “peoples in Ethiopia” and the “people of Ethiopia” actually makes all the difference between OLF and other opposition forces that are fighting to build a better Ethiopia for everyone. The fact that the Council listed liberation along with democracy, the rule of law and human rights does not camouflage the true color of OLF or its mission which remains to be the “liberation of Oromia from the Colonial empire of Abysinnia.”Read More

Meles-ovich selling Ethiopia and the region

In an effort to sell goodwill and to gain the hearts and minds of Eritreans, soon after Eritrea won independence, Meles stood on a podium in Asmara stadium and promised, “We will not scratch your wounds.” After decades of barbaric rulers; years of suffering, bloodshed, looting, rapes, destruction, displacements and cruelty; after decades of wars, Eritrea was ready to let go and move on. Eritrea was ready for peace and for good news. Meles understood Eritrea’s hunger and need to hear soothing words of peace when he made those statements. Of course, he never meant it. After gathering himself, he ignited unnecessary war, expelled more than 75, 000 Eritreans out of Ethiopia, stole their hard-earned wealth and temporarily destroyed the goodwill to heal wounds between the good people of Eritrea and Ethiopia.
Meles-ovich has been selling everything to bolster his stature as a strong man and key figure in Africa and the world consistently. He wanted to be the figurehead and was encouraged to act the part by his US and Western financiers; and he performed that part splendidly. The job required someone with no ethical standards, willing to lie and wreak havoc without regard to the future of the region or his people. The job required a lot of selling mainly to the international community. He obliged.
He sold the Badme war while labeling Eritrea the aggressor for a temporary gain and thus destroying all good will with Eritrea’s leaders. He misled the Ethiopian people into a war with Eritrea without a clear and achievable objective by tapping into the hopes of those who want to retake Eritrea by force using border issue as excuse with no intention to resolve what he foolishly started. He sold the Ethiopian people and the world a lie that he won the Badme decision at The Hague and soon thereafter, he rejected it by calling the EEBC decision as illegal and virtual demarcation as a “Legal nonsense.” Then he accepted it in principle and tried to sell the tired and disingenuous “dialogue” idea.

Fears of a new Tora Bora in northern Somalia

ERIGAVO, Somalia — A notorious warlord and arms dealer is training Islamist fighters in the remote mountains of northern Somalia and setting up what local officials fear could become a new Tora Bora.
Mohamed Said Atom, one of a handful of men singled out by the UN Security Council as violating an arms embargo on Somalia, has established bases in the Sanaag mountains straddling Puntland and Somaliland, a senior security official said.
The Al Qaeda-linked Shebab insurgent group has been mainly active in southern and central Somalia in recent years, focusing its military efforts on trying to topple the western-backed government in Mogadishu.
But the July 11 bombings in Kampala claimed by the Shebab have signalled the group's expanding reach, and activity by Atom's men in Sanaag has stirred concern that the rebels were now poised to destablise the two breakaway states.
"Atom has links with Al-Qaeda and represents the Shebab in the region," said Colonel Mohamed Jama, a senior security official from the semi-autonomous state of Puntland.
"We are receiving information that he has mobilised hundreds of Islamist militants in the villages around Sanaag Bari," Jama told AFP.Read More

News Africa AU warns of Somalia civilian deaths


About 5,000 African Union peacekeepers
are stationed in Somalia [AFP]
The African Union has warned in an internal report that it risks losing public support in Somalia if it continues to kill large numbers of civilians.
About 5,000 AU peacekeepers are stationed in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, protecting the weak Transitional Federal Government.

The AU's report concluded that the peacekeepers have indiscriminately shelled civilian areas, causing large numbers of casualties.
The organisation called for "urgent attention" to the problem of civilian casualties.
The AU's assessment was conducted between April and June of this year, and first reported on Wednesday by The Associated Press news agency.Read More

NAIROBI, Kenya — Somali officials acknowledged on Thursday that several members of Somalia’s presidential guard had defected to the Shabab, the radical Islamist insurgent group that claimed responsibility for the recent bombings in Uganda that killed more than 70 people watching the final game of the World Cup.  Read More

INTERPOL’S fake images: - Ex. TFG Prime Minster is not the Kampala Suicide Bomber

The weekend of the world cup massacre (7/11) in Kampala that caused the death of 74 people came at the least expected  time: It came at a time when the whole world was at stand still and united in enjoying the long awaited final play of the last leg of the world cup; a time that nations of the world forgot what divides them but instead embraced what unites them as human beings; a time the Israeli prison guards and the Hamaz inmates voluntarily shelved their disparity, time arch rivals were betting on the same team, time the world marked environmental awareness by taking millions of cars off the road, time the citizens of the world except the Somalis, under the control of Harakat Al Shabab   Mujahidin, joined hands in celebration.

Reconstructed photos of suspected killers in Uganda terror attacks on football fans published by INTERPOL

The reconstructed pictures of the two suspects raises more questions than answers and thus injects heavy dose of mistrust in the already what is fast becoming suspicious investigation.


Mr. Ali Geedi
 
The picture on the left is the true picture of Professor Ali Geedi, the then TFG Prime Minister in his office two years back. The reconstructed photo on the wright is the same photo but doctored poorly – Just the head of the suspect is super imposed on the professor’s picture but the jacket, the shirt and the flag at the background confirms that the photo from Interpol is not genuine at all.
The left Photo is that of a clergy man who by the look of his style of dress appears most probably to hail from West Africa or perhaps Sudan but the image on the right is depicting a DJ who mixes Somali music tracks in Sweden. This is sending a conflicting message as it is impossible for Al Shabab member to allow himself to pause for a photo in an atmosphere that is remotely connected to music as music is considered by Al – Shabab as the voice of Satan.

East Africa is adopting a hardline stance towards the Somalia-based Al Shabaab militia which claimed responsibility for the twin-bomb attacks that killed at least 74 people in Kampala on July 11.

In response to the attacks, the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development member states will immediately send an extra 2,000 soldiers to Somalia to strengthen the 6,100 African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom) troops on the ground.
“This act of terrorism against innocent Ugandans has only strengthened member states’ resolve to deal with the Somalia problem by increasing the number of troops,” said Igad Executive Secretary Mahboub Maalim.
The additional troops will increase the number of soldiers serving under Amisom to 8,100, by the end of August.
Top security chiefs from Igad member states will meet in Addis Ababa on July 19-21 to decide which countries will be contributing the troops. Read More

Somalia: 'Puntland under attack by foreign terrorists': Farole

he president of Somalia's Puntland State government has said that the stable region is "under attack" by international terror groups and is cracking down on anti-peace elements, Radio Garowe reports.
Dr. Abdirahman Mohamed Farole, Puntland's elected president, told the VOA Somali Service during a Wednesday interview that a group loyal to Al Shabaab militants in southern Somalia is responsible for assassinations of Puntland officials.
"The group hiding in Galgala hills received training in southern Somalia and they take orders from foreign terrorists who are the enemy of peace and government," President Farole said, while referring to a hilly region west of Bossaso, Puntland's commercial heartland.
Abdirahman Farole, Puntland's president
The Galgala militants are led by a Puntland-born self-styled sheikh named Mohamed Said Atom, who is on the U.S. wanted list of suspects who hinder peace in Somalia.

"The local element in Galgala hills is led by the man named Atom, who has been hiding out in the mountains for a few years. But those who kill people in Bossaso are especially trained to spread the terror they commit in the south to every part of Somalia," Puntland's president said.Read More

One ethnic domination the main factor of instability in Ethiopia

‘I really feel totally betrayed by the system,’ confessed Beyene Petros, one of the most respected leaders of the Ethiopian opposition, a few days after its crushing defeat in the general elections on 23 May 2010. ‘I thought that, if we competed in the elections, there would be a door ajar that could be made use of by competing parties. This assumption of mine was totally misplaced.’
But how could he have been so mistaken? Like most of the opposition, how could he have expected that the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), the ruling party since 1991, would faithfully play the electoral game and run the risk of repeating the surprise scenario of the 2005 elections, where the opposition made such spectacular progress? How could he even imply, a few days later, that the voters voted for the opposition in the election and that cheating only defeated it? And what a defeat! 99.6% of the vote, just one opposition representative out of 547 elected members of the federal Parliament and just one out of the 1900 regional assembly representatives. In a nutshell: how and why did the Ethiopian opposition make such a mistake about its electoral chances, as if it had not fully realized that the EPRDF had systematically and implacably started immediately after its 2005 electoral blow to make sure it would win in 2010, at any price?
‘Whatever policy differences there might be among the opposition, I think we agree on the minimum issues of democracy and rule of law.’ This appeal from opposition leader, Seye Abraha, calls on the opposition to unite in order to recover from its defeat. Most commentators credit it with its disarray, which they see as aggravated by internal conflict and the lack of coherence in its policies but these explanations do not stand up to scrutiny.

Indonesia: Muslims turn to Mecca after praying to Somalia

Indonesia: Muslims turn to Mecca after praying to Somalia
Riazat Butt, religious affairs correspondent
The GuardianJuly 20, 2010
Indonesian Muslims have been praying in the wrong direction for months, facing Somalia when they should have been facing Saudi Arabia, the country's highest religious authority said yesterday. A cleric from the Indonesian Ulema Council admitted the body made a mistake last March when calculating where Muslims should turn to when praying. He said new instructions had been issued and that people only had to shift their position for the correct alignment. Mutoha Arkanuddin, an Islamic scholar, claimed that more than half of the country's mosques pointed the wrong way.

Ganging up on Museveni

 
Dr Besigye (L), Mulwanyamuli (C) and Muliika (R) during the launch of Buganda Region Mobilization on campaign at Pope Paul Memorial Hotel on June 8 in Kampala. Besigye said the launch was to sensitize Buganda about the 2011 elections and advised people to vote out the NRM IN 2011.
Mulwanyamuli’s long walk with Besigye
Bidandi, Butime, Kiyonga pulled out
On June 8, two former katikkiros (prime ministers) of Buganda Kingdom officially “announced” that they were joining active politics. The two men—Dan Muliika and Mulwanyamuli Ssemwogerere —would reportedly campaign for the coalition of the opposition – the Inter Party Cooperation (IPC) in the 2011 parliamentary and presidential elections.
The announcement was received with shock inside the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM). A top NRM leader who did not want to be named told The Independent that the Movement had expected Muliika to take such a move but not Mulwanyamuli. 
The news was received with excitement and enthusiasm in the opposition, especially in the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and the Baganda faction of the Democratic Party (DP) led by Members of Parliament (MPs) Betty Nambooze and Erias Lukwago.

Another election and fear of ADF

.

June ended with reports that suspected Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels had attacked Mutwanga, a town in the Democratic Republic of Congo killing 16 civilians.

The resurfacing of the ADF in the Eastern Congo town which is 50 kilometres from the Uganda border has left the Uganda army, Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), on high alert. According to the UPDF Spokesman, Lt. Col. Felix Kulayigye it was not a surprise. Kulayigye believes the rebels staged the attack to create a climate of fear before Uganda’s presidential race in February 2011
“Probably they (ADF) are beginning active operations in an attempt to gain more food and more resources.  The last time they tried to operate inside our country, they were given a bad blow.  This was in March 2007, and they have been trying to recover from that blow and maybe they are trying to capture or kidnap more people to beef up their numbers,” Kulayigye said.Read More

Somalia, at War, Rummages for Cash

The cash-strapped Somali government is searching to recover funds locked in bank accounts around the world, in an attempt to stave off bankruptcy and fund a battle that has accelerated in recent days against an al Qaeda-backed insurgency.
Somali and African Union troops last week launched a counterattack against Islamic militants in the capital, Mogadishu, in an effort to carve out space to govern. At least 48 people have been killed, according to medical personnel.
