Over the last 20 years, war of ugliest kind has been fought in Somalia. Somali people, wherever they are, spoiled their true identity. Don’t get offended. This is a choice Somalis made themselves! Today what-so-called Somali Republic is shattered into … Continue reading

Ever since my birth, the sufferings and the plight of African people have been ‘music’ to my ears. Whenever I switch on TVs, all that jumps to the screen is bad news and a sort of desolation going on in one part or another in Africa. True it is that wars, poverty and dictatorship are familiar to every child born and raised in Africa.
The times when atrocities from Africa flash from the TV screens, the easiest one could do is to reach for remote control and move to another channel. Because simply we can’t hear our cryings, watch our wretchedness and see the corpses lying all over the place.
But here in this world, there are people who are different from you and me. There are people who do not get hurt by the images on the screen, but have got strong and compassionate heart to go a mile further and face the reality. And people of this nature are always rare. One of such people is a New Zealand nurse, Lisa F Blacker, who takes us behind the headlines and into the frontline of most war-ravaged places in Africa- Darfur. Darfur is a place where I personally learned a lot through my Darfurian classmates. Their stories are so tear-jerking! Continue reading
Unknown to many people in the world is a yet-to-be-recognized state with three and half million population in the Horn of Africa. It is a phenomenal country that has emerged out from the ashes of the collapsed Somalia. Up till now it stayed stable for over two decades without any external support. It is a country that has set brilliant records in terms of government institution building and peace maintenance which was based on a unique blend of traditional conflict-resolving approach and modern democracy. This happens to be Somaliland – Africa’s bonfire of peace and democracy.
The 18th of May marked the 20th anniversary when Somaliland regained and declared its independence from the rest of Somalia. And since then Somaliland has not been formally accorded recognition by any country even though it has realized unparalleled successes. However, I would like here to share with my readers of why Somaliland has to be recognized as an independent state. Continue reading
Arladii waa la kharibay. Meel kasta dhagar baa lagu galay. Dhiiggii waa kan durduuraanaya. Tan baa u danbaysay dalkii barwaaqada lagu yiqiin. Oohinta iyo uurku taalada ayaa guri walba saaxiib la noqotay. Lugahani dhulka jiitamay waa kuwo mar hore tamar dareeyey. Waa kan dhulkii si habalqale ah ugu dul dhacay. Ninkan dhulka salka ku hayaa waa mid waayuhu gacmo duubeen. Murugadda wejigiisa ka muuqata waxa aad moodaa in cadaabtii loogu sii bishaareeyey. Haraad buu kax taagan yahay, balse ma tiigsan karo xareedda hortiisa galalaclaynaysa. Intaa wuu maqan yahay, mar qudhana isma weydiiyo waayaha ballada badan ee uu la nool yahay. Wuxuuba u haystaa wax dabiici ah oo isaga loogu talo-galay. Haa , loogu talo galay oo intii kaga beegnay uu ka hantiyey. Halkaasuu fakar dheer galaa oo sannado badan oo uu soo dhaafay giiraanta nolosha dib ugu celiyaa. Continue reading
Gone are the days when people were sympathetic about those who shaped their lives. Little we usually bear in mind those who cared us and cherished us a lot. In fact we are such forgetful creatures! You may wonder why I should bother about this, but certainly there’s an answer for it. Have you ever thought of your mom so much that you shed tears for her unknowingly? Well, even if you didn’t do so, it doesn’t mean you hate her, but perhaps someone else has filled in her place in your heart! Remember moms deserve much more from us.
My mom is a special person. She is a gift from God. Never had I slept a night without thinking about her. Once I recall how she fed me from her gentle breasts, and how much she hushed me in her arms to rest, I just feel like longing her care much. My mom is a selfless person, a loving wife, a caring mother, a devoted daughter and a true lady. For all that and more, I’ll always love mom. Continue reading
Movingly interesting debate about how blogs affect African opinion in which I was participated in and was held online by BBC Africa Have Your Say. There were a number of people from all across the world who showed a great interest in the debate. The questions were very many and yet fantastic. Hilarious it was, I answered with keen interest. Click the link below to listen the debate (Do Blogs Affect African Opinion?)
The Republic of Somaliland has been a ‘new’ country in the midst of hostile region for the last nineteen years. For almost these two decades, several praiseworthy achievements have been brought to fruition. Our petty differences are no longer unbreakable barriers. I thank to Almighty Allah for He has kept us peace and unity when so many others in our negabors are still in sorry state.
Our strength as a nation is found in unity, not division. Yes! with unity we can accomplish great things together. Many people have admired that we brought the ends meet while there is no remarkable assistance from the Developed world. That they call it miracle!
But today Somaliland I see is not the one I used to be proud of. It seems something has gone wrong in the middle of our way to success. Right now our motion is so slow! So let this essay be a wake-up call for Somalilanders . However, I dare to comment such scenario positively before it gets too late.
