Is Somalia switching alliances to escape Pressure from western partners? 

MOGADISHU, Somalia - In a tweet, on Thursday China called for upholding the principle of "Somali Ownership, Somali leadership": "China respects Somalia's sovereignty, territorial integrity, political independence, and dignity, firmly supports Somalia's peace, development and prosperity..." China said in a Twitter post. 

History repeats itself, in 1969, Somalia's dictator Siad Barre overthrew a weak democratic government and switched alliances taking sides with the Soviet and China abandoning West

Despite outgoing President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo being a US Citizen for decades, he now wants to turn back on the country’s long donors to escape pressures since his term as President ended.

In 2018, Farmajo joined the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative as part of this emerging Superpower to link its nation to the rest of the world

Facing total denial from the International Community’s demand of inclusive and fair election to take place in the country, the outgoing President sought help from the neighbouring Eritrea and Ethiopia who indirectly support his government.

The International Representatives including the UN and US had strongly advocated the need for change in power peacefully with taking all necessary measures to hold an inclusive and fair election.
