Covid-19: Somali government imposes new restrictions in light of Covid spike
This year's celebrations were muted due to the coronavirus that killed 753 people and infected 14,486 across Somalia since 2020, shattering the already fragile health system.
The current Somali government, whose mandate ended, came to power with the expectations of massive reforms in institutional and development settings. President Farmajo completed his term in office without paving the way for consensus-based elections; instead, he messed up the growing Somali institutions and the trust-building processes.
The minister said that the exam for the 2020/21 school year will kick off May 29 and ends on June 2, of this year. He has urged all students to take advantage of the extra time given to review their books.
The media workers were threatened and intimidated at gunpoint, denied access to the information and sometimes their equipment was confiscated on daily incidences by Somali security forces in Mogadishu.
MOHAMED ABDULLAHI MOHAMED, better known to his people as Farmaajo, was once a popular figure. Residents in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, welcomed him to the presidency in 2017 with celebratory gunfire.
The international community guards and finances the government of Somalia on regular basis. It spends billions of dollars on Somalia with the purpose of impeding Al-Shabab takeover of the country and keeping peace, stability and democratic process in order to enable the country to be independent for its own affairs in the future.
Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo, whose presidential term ended on Feb. 7, 2021, was elected in February 2017 with the hope that he would build on his predecessor’s successes in improving Somalia’s economy and security situation and deliver on his campaign promises of eliminating the terrorist group al-Shabab and ending corruption.
For the last thirty years many people were killed in the Somali violence. Fathers, mothers, grand fathers, grand mothers and children as little as infants were lost needlessly. In the Islamic and Somali cultures, it is forbidden to harm or kill women, children, religious leaders and traditional leaders and elderly people. It also forbidden to attack civilian facilities including schools and hospitals according to the International law. Civilians can not be a deliberate military target by any circumstances.
The United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) is on track to withdraw almost all U.S. forces from Somalia by January 15, 2021, providing a gratuitous public relations and operational windfall to al-Shabaab, Somalia’s potent al-Qaeda affiliate.
The high level of political antagonism, public agitation, insecurity, and fear for violence afflicting Somalia demand the immediate resignation of President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo as the right option before Somalia falls apart. The most important task for all Somalis and international Partners is to defuse with urgency the current turmoil that is getting worse by the day.
U.S. defense and intelligence officials have long considered the Somalia-based al-Shabab one of the gravest threats emanating from Africa, targeting the group with 53 airstrikes in 2020 and 63 airstrikes in 2019.
Mohamud M Uluso - The purpose of this article is to provide rationale and guidelines for the adoption and implementation of “Clan Based 2016 Electoral Model” as the better option between the four Electoral models suggested by Somalia National Consultative Leadership Forum (SNCLF).
Keydmedia Online - Dr. Mohamed Warsame 'Kimiko' - « Previous Page | The international community’s labeling of Warlords/Faction Leaders — The descriptive names given by the Somalis to the elements involved at their various stages of regression and the reasons why they do not consider them as leaders and deny them such labels have been sufficiently explained in the previous pages. However, for reasons of ease and uniformity henceforth we shall use the international community’s label: “Warlords or Faction Leaders”.
