Farmaajo: We Have No One Else to Blame
To their surprise of the acting actors, it was out of their political vision for Somalia that the hostage people should take its destiny into its hands and undo the iron shackles designed by the UN Secretary General and the Political Office of Nairobi. It sounds also that the IGAD countries shall be seeing another day downing for Somalia- a political development working in favor for Somalia’s political stability.
This new, enigmatic political junction is quite challenging the UN mandate for Somalia, and certainly, Ambassador Mahiga and the UNPOS in Nairobi are sitting on hot seats are not prepared to give up their quest to bring Mogadishu back to its former fold.
UNPOS assets include: The political appeal of the Secretary General of the UN. A financial muscle to bribe their way. AMISOM forces stationed in Mogadishu, as well as the political input of President Muzeveni and President Meles Zenawi.
Since Mogadishu revolution took place in the last Thursday on June 9, 2011, Ambassador Mahiga went on the offensive by distributing give away USD cash in the amount of 150,000 to seduce influential political personalities and Diaspora Website operators in the hope of escalating conflicts in Mogadishu and aborting the positive political development taking place in Somalia.
Ambassador Augustine P. Mahiga and his cohorts in Mogadishu and elsewhere are most likely to instigate violence and demonstrations in Mogadishu to upset and discredit the smooth running of the government and the parliament, and in particular, to damage the political profile of the Prime Minister Mr. Mohamed A. Formago.
It is very important to know that the TFG and the Parliament establishment are crossing on delicate, political cross-roads unforeseen by Ambassador Mahiga and UN Security Council, and all the political chips are up in the air.
The biggest loss for Ambassador Mahiga’s political design and his East African Leaders is the estrangement of the Speaker of the Parliament Mr. Sheriff Hassan Sheikh Aden from the political scene in Mogadishu, an important point man of Somalia’s political tragedy.
What the residents of Mogadishu can do is to rallying behind the TFG and ward off the enemy of peace and stability, while respecting law and order.
I read your article on Foreign Policy with keen eyes and interest. While whining from public officials does not deserve response from any sensible citizen of the Republic of Somalia, I felt compelled to counter false narrative with more objective analysis.
