Mogadishu (Keydmedia) - I sometimes ask myself a question, who is terrorist? At this point, the oxford English dictionary becomes a vital tool for an accurate answer. A terrorist is anybody committing act of terror.

The African union forces in Somalia are committing a criminal offence yet no international organization or communities are there to evaluate or even condemn these acts.

Very sophisticated long range missiles are aimlessly fired from different bases in Mogadishu landing over 20km long to innocent lives in Bakara market and surrounding areas.

These blind firing has caused several deaths while several injured casualties are scattered in different hospitals in Mogadishu. Most people who die are few who remained in houses fled to make watch over assets in Hodan and Wardigley districts.

When I made attempt to ask AMISOM spokesperson Brigadier Bahuku, he said, “Amisom doest fire un-aimed long range missile”. He didn’t show any sign of quilt at all but thrown the ball to the other side of the coin.

On the other side, Sheikh Ali said “we don’t have these kinds of long range missiles. Our missiles are short and we accurately fire at our opposing”. He said these in defense with an empty remain gasket.

This kind of clever defense are on ground but has now caused a major closed behind business to the only existing Bakara market. To make matters worst, the only opened road leading to the market has also shut down after the heavy fighting which led to the take over of former defense headquarter from Al-shabaab.

Bakara business communities have started hiring stores and houses around Madina estates of Darkinley district to store goods imported through Mogadishu port. If the industrial road is not going to open by end month, then, a new Bakara market will be established creating another lifestyle to the people of Mogadishu.
