SOMALIA: Sakarie Haji Abdi- Ethiopia intends to be back into Somalia
ASMARA (RBC) Head of Alliance for the Re-liberation of Somalia (ARS) based in Eritrea, Sakarie Mahamud Haji Abdi has blamed that Ethiopian regime is intending to send its forces back into Somalia to support the weak transitional government of Somalia.
“Sources in Addis Ababa told us the Ethiopians are preparing new invasion against Somali territory after the so-called president Sheikh Sharif asked Meles Zenawi”, Sakarie said in a phone interview from Asmara, the capital of Eritrea.
Sakarie, who was also former member of Somalia parliament, warned the Somali people will face new war from Ethiopians similar to Ethiopia’s invasion in 2006 insisting that Ethiopian intervention to Somalia will never finish.
“I believe Ethiopia is still involved in the country, they have 1,500 spies in Mogadishu as their forces collect tax in Kalabeyr road in Hiran region”, he said in a phone interview from Asmara, the capital of Eritrea.
The head of Asmara based movement called for Somali people to mind their own affairs rather than foreigners refusing that the UN backed government is the legal government of Somalia.
Ethiopian forces entered Somalia in 2006 backing former president Abdulahi Yusuf to oust the Union of Islamic courts in Mogadishu but withdrew in 2009.
