Open letter from Ottawa Somaliland Community in support of Mr. John Drysdale

 An Open Letter.

We, the Somaliland community of Ottawa, Canada, are extremely disappointed that Mr. John Drysdale be deprived of his UN project that has been given by a deal that reeks of nepotism to the brother of the Minister Hersi. This is extremely shameful and will further highlight the level of corruption of the current government.

Furthermore Mr. Drysdale perhaps symbolizes singlehandedly the friendship between Somaliland and the UK and depriving him of his income is an act of ultimate stupidity in the opinion of the Somaliland community of Ottawa. We strongly urge the government to intervene and restore his employment.

We will also remind the government of Somaliland that the sole friend it has in the entire world is the UK and if a UK national is treated in such a way then Somaliland should accept the consequences with regard to how this will affect its relationship with the UK.

Furthermore, we will remind Somaliland that the UK has welcomed closed to fifty thousand Somalilanders and made them British citizens, if this is how Somaliland is going to return the favor then maybe government of Somaliland should take a course in public relation because it doesn’t have the faintest of ideas as to how it should keep current friends let alone make new ones.

Finally we know where Mr. Drysdale figure in the history of Somaliland and how he was the first Englishman to have set up a school where he was teaching the Somali language to British expatriates, not to mention that he played a crucial role in the setup of the current Somaliland constitution by hiring legal expert consultant, not to mention that he had lived in the Somaliland since 1935.

The Somaliland Community of Ottawa, Canada, will look forward to a satisfactory resolution of this problem and a return to his employment for Mr Drysdale. If that does not happen the government of Somaliland should expect the entire Ottawa Somaliland community to give its support to one of the opposition parties and to lobby against the current government every opportunity its gets, so it is up to the current government to stay true to its mantra of fighting corruption and nepotism, look in the mirror and restore Mr Drysdale to his employment.

Yours truly,

(Somaliland Community of Ottawa)
