Mogadishu and new money

The country’s leadership held by different leaders who have different names those combined to disturb the people, those ones always prefer to take opposite step every action which take the other side.

Those sides make bad compotation which the result become civilians casualties in many terms, whether it become daily life, economically, politically and all other issues that may effect the societies activity, those sides didn’t think one minute about civilians.

It was the beginning of this year when the TFG Ex money ministry Abdurrahman omer Osman declare that  the government publishing money and sudan government will give hand about that.

After months Mogadishu markets have seen in anew Somali Shilin especially one thousand (1,000) the lowest and highest currency in south and central Somalia.

The Islamist groups reveal that they will not accept to use this newly money and promised that will punish any one who tries to use this money, but they will not tell what kind of punishment that they are planning.


Though the spread money parts of the country you may see arguments between those involved Business operations and the other party of the people, Some parts of the capital and surrounding areas where controlled by Alshabab or Hisbul Islam you may see teenagers who were investigating the people’s daily income and collecting any new money that they see and the surprise is that they are not giving it’s change since they prohibited the use of the money.

“All passengers we are notifying you that we are not allow to come with new money in this area, do not disturb the drivers and conductors work, after this time we will investigate your pockets if you do not stop the use of the new money” said a teenager boy who stay a checkpoint  around Bakaro Market junction.

“They said half of the money that I worked today did not allow, when we make service to the people they give us what can I do know? Isn’t it problem?  If this money is not allowed party of city where other party is normal” said old women which carry on the back so as to get money 

Thus when we look the situation in depth isn’t it seem that both sides the TFG and the opposition parties not allow the life of the civilian.

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.
