Former refugee Magid Magid takes up Sheffield Lord Mayor post

... Born in Burao in war-torn northern Somalia, Mr Magid said he did not remember much of his childhood and had never returned to his country of birth. "I remember just being happy, playing around as you do as a kid, but in reality it was a completely different story," he said. His family set up home in Sheffield's Burngreave area.

He said life was difficult when he and his family arrived, trying to learn the language and adapt to a new way of life. His mother worked as a cleaner to look after her children, with Magid and his siblings acting as translators.

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

Somaliland, A nation that deserves International Recognition

- Somaliland is a country that had been a stable and independent state from Somalia in the past 27 years after gaining its independence on 18th May 1991. In May this year, Somaliland continues to protest its legitimacy as an existing nation forward to show the world that it is the only nation in the Horn of Africa deserving for an international recognition. Being a peaceful and a stable country, Somaliland elected its fifth president calmly in 2017, While Somalia is known as a country that was once on the center of world attention but now became a failed state of No-2- according to the Fund for Peace’s Fragile States Index of 2018.

- Stretching on a 26,000 sq. m. factory shade at the Eastern Industry Zone, the Chinese DI YUAN Ceramics PLC has started to ship flooring and wall tiles to Somaliland and Djibouti this week, making good on its promise to target neighboring markets in the regions.

Somaliland Must Be Free

"The U.S. wastes blood and treasure propping up Somalia while denying its neighbor's sovereign aspirations. Why?" Ali

- In 1991, following the collapse of the authoritarian Somali government, the northwestern region of war-torn Somalia became a de-facto republic called Somaliland. Every year on May 18, millions of people take part in Somaliland’s independence rallies. Though Somaliland is imperfect, it has all of the attributes of a functioning nation: a legitimate political order that has the consent of the people, a court system that enforces the rule of law, a security force protecting its people and denying sanctuary for terrorists, and a political process to ensure the peaceful transfer of power. In fact, last November, Somaliland had a free and credible presidential election, as certified by international observers.

Edmonton: Hall packed with crowd for Somaliland Independence Day

- Somaliland: For expats, Independence Day is an opportunity to celebrate the self-declared country’s “peace and stability,” event organizer Abdullahi Mohamed said as a growing crowd began to to fill the Portuguese Cultural Centre in northeast Edmonton on Saturday night.

Although the rest of the world does not recognize Somaliland’s autonomy, the region nevertheless operates as a democracy, with its own elections, currency and judicial system. Somaliland was previously colonized by the United Kingdom while the rest of Somalia was colonized by Italy.

These female doctors are changing the lives of fistula survivors in Somaliland

- On one day in March dozens of people gathered in a hospital in Hargeisa, Somaliland. The bright room was decorated with flowers and banners in red, green and white, the colours of Somaliland’s flag. Doctors –foreign and Somali – ministers, medical students, former patients and journalists filed in, greeting each other, standing in little groups and talking animatedly. A man walked to the front, bowed his head, and intoned a prayer over the crackly microphone, and the murmur turned to silence as people took to their seat. Minutes later, a woman dressed in an elegant blue gown took to the podium. Edna Adan, the face of Somaliland’s healthcare and founder of the hospital where this event took place, is in her 80s, but the passion in her voice and her strong demeanour make her seem decades younger.

East Africa: How an Unrecognised State’s Port Deal Could Shift Dynamics Across the Horn

"......the party with the most to lose from the DP World deal is Djibouti, which has come to rely on Ethiopia’s custom as much as Ethiopia relies on Djibouti’s access to the sea" African argument

- Despite Somalia’s protestations, DP World and Somaliland are set to expand Berbera port. Some in the neighbourhood are excited. Others are worried. Despite officially being banned from operating in Somalia this March, DP World is set to begin a project later this year that could have far-reaching implications for the region, both economically and politically.

Somaliland President launches new annual reforestation day

- WAGENINGEN, Netherlands (Landscape News) – A new “Somaliland National Tree Day” reforestation initiative will be held each year to address one of the most severe environmental threats faced by the semi-autonomous region in the Horn of Africa.

A devastating six-year drought in Somaliland has killed off animals and left livestock farmers searching for alternate sources of income from charcoal production, which has led to extensive deforestation, said a university professor attending a workshop on landscape governance organized by the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands.

How it feels to be the foreign minister of a country that doesn’t officially exist

 Somaliland’s chief diplomat comes to London.
 
- I hadn’t thought to book anywhere for our meeting; neither had my interviewee’s handler. The three of us spent an awkward ten minutes trailing from packed pub to crowded cafe, before deciding that time was short and we might as well just get on with it. So it was that I ended up interviewing the foreign minister of Somaliland by the fridge in the corner of a Westminster sandwich shop. This is not the normal place to find a chief diplomat – but Dr Saad Ali Shire seemed content enough. “If we were officially recognised, I’d be surrounded by security and so forth,” he pointed out. “I wouldn’t be free.”

Laas Geel: Heritage world’s best-kept secret

In Somaliland, stunning cave art dating back thousands of years lies in excellent state of preservation

- Hargiesa, Somaliland: As we drive along on the thin layer of pock-marked asphalt that passes for a ‘highway’, a rusty, fading sign directs us in the general direction of ‘Laas Geel’. We are about 40km outside Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland, a self-declared independent republic that the international community and the government in Mogadishu consider a part of Somalia.

Somaliland’s independence bid boosted by geostrategic shakeup

  "Somaliland is nearer to its holy grail (recognition) than even before"

- For nearly three decades, the holy grail of politics in Somaliland has been its quest for international recognition. Somaliland is not its own country — not officially, any way — but it wants to be. It operates with complete independence from Somalia proper, under whose sovereignty the territory technically falls, and it boasts all the trappings of a modern state: a flag, a national anthem, a currency, an army, a Constitution.

Somaliland: Where Sovereignty Means Something


''Sarah Phillips, a Senior Lecturer at Sydney University, is in Somaliland conducting research. She is grateful to the Developmental Leadership Program for funding. ''.

- Even as a political scientist, sovereignty is not something that captures a lot of my attention in the course of a normal day. But when I spend time in Somaliland, it's inescapable, and what it means to be seen – or not seen – as a state by the rest of the world is heatedly debated by people from all walks of life. Somaliland proclaimed its independence from Somalia in 1991 but has never been officially recognised by any state despite exercising a reasonable level of territorial control and internal political legitimacy.

Aid agencies start projects to feed internal refugees in Somaliland


-  In Ainabo, about 400km from the Somaliland capital Hargeisa, half of the population is comprised of internal refugees displaced by conflict and drought. Hassan Sa’ed, the mayor of Oog, a small town within Ainabo, says the resources in the area have been strained by the influx of the IDPs. “Our main needs are water and pasture,” he said. “But we, the host community, and the IDPs are also in dire need of health and educational facilities, and a means of earning a livelihood.
“We know the government has an obligation to provide for its people,” the mayor added, “but it is weak. Without international recognition, it is hard to predict how long it will take the government to provide basic needs to the citizens.”
