Abdulrahim Abby Farah obituary

- My uncle, Abdulrahim Abby Farah, who has died aged 98, progressed from the back streets of Barry, in south Wales, to become, by the time of his retirement, the United Nations assistant secretary general for special political questions.

He worked his way up to the UN via the British Colonial Service and had spells as an ambassador for Somalia before moving to the UN headquarters in New York. Spending time with him opened my eyes to the rich history that links Britain to Somalia. To enter his house was to step into another age, surrounded by artefacts and photographs accumulated from his years of travel around the world. There were also images of him with figures such as George HW Bush and Haile Selassie.

'Leave now, pay later': Migration scams lure Somali teens to their deaths

- When Hanab Ahmed's 18-year-old son Mohammed did not come home for lunch or answer his phone, she feared that he - like several other teenagers who had disappeared from their neighbourhood - had set off for Europe, risking kidnapping and death.

A month later, Ahmed, who lives in Hargeisa, the capital of the self-declared republic of Somaliland, received a call from her son who was being held for ransom by traffickers in Sudan."He said it was bad and that there wasn't enough food or water and he saw people die," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, clutching a photo of her son between fingers stained orange with henna.

Investors are putting Somaliland on the map

- Hong Kong–based American business developer Robby Zirkelbach has set up small firms in South Sudan, Iran and North Korea. But Somalia was too risky even for the former U.S. Marine sniper with a stomach for adventurous investments, until he stumbled upon the country’s north, the self-declared Republic of Somaliland. There, he sees promise in a land shattered by war.

After a walk through the bustling, dust-filled market at the center of the region’s capital, Hargeisa, and a trip to the developing port city of Berbera, Zirkelbach has decided to “dip a toe” into the developing market. He has identified electronics as an area where his company would like to invest, and he isn’t alone.

What’s the Difference Between Somaliland and Somalia?

"After several months of living in Somaliland’s would-be capital city of Hargeisa, a friend from China messaged me asking if I was okay. The news that morning had been full of footage from Mogadishu. Hundreds of people had died in one of the country’s worst terrorist attacks."

- Somaliland, however, is a little different. It was in fact at one point an independent nation… For the grand total of five days between its independence from Britain and its union with Somalia. Unlike other aspiring nations, the country it is technically part of has no official presence there. Somaliland functions as an independent country complete with its own government, currency and military, even though it has remained unrecognised by the international community for over twenty years. 

Ethiopia plans to build navy, says PM Abiy

 "Ethiopia currently has a civilian Ethiopian Maritime Training Institute on Lake Tana."

- With no way out to sea, Ethiopia plans to build navy, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said during a briefing with the heads of the country's National Defense Force.

As a result of efforts to build the capacity of our national defense, we have built one of the most powerful lands and air forces in Africa," Abiy said on Friday. "We must strengthen our capacity for naval force in the future.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: "BERBERA, Somaliland—The battle...

BERBERA, Somaliland—The battle for hegemony in the Middle East is playing out at an ancient African port where traditional dhow fishing boats now share space with giant, container ships loaded around the clock by men in yellow high-visibility vests.

Berbera, in the breakaway republic of Somaliland, is perched on a narrow shipping lane leading to the Suez Canal and is just 260 nautical miles from Yemen’s civil war. Since antiquity, the town’s strategic shore has been coveted by military and maritime powers. Described by colonial-era travelers as the “key to the Red Sea,” the port became an Ottoman stronghold and later a British colonial outpost.

A tale of two ports: Somaliland challenges Djibouti

 ......."These deals have helped Somaliland secure some of the international recognition it craves, all while infuriating Mogadishu". Eastafricamonitor 

- Djibouti may not quite be the “Singapore of Africa” yet, but the Horn of Africa’s smallest country still plays an oversized role in global affairs by providing valuable real estate to foreign militaries and positioning itself as a crucial waypoint for maritime trade. A highly strategic location has helped Djiboutian president Ismail Omar Guelleh attract significant investment and bilateral engagement from both the United States and China.

Somaliland wants Uganda recognition

- The state of Somaliland, which seeks to attain international recognition has opened talks with Uganda about a consulate in Kampala. Somaliland, a tiny country in the horn of Africa, was granted independence by the British in 1960 and shortly after joined Somalia, a former Italy colony to form the Somali republic.

The union soured in 1991 after a civil war, prompting Somaliland to declare independence from Somalia. Since then, the international community has not yet recognised it as sovereign. Now Somaliland intends to add Uganda to the list of countries with which it has diplomatic ties and they include; Kenya, South Africa, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Belgium, United Kingdom, France and South Suda
