With Somali political anarchy in mind, the very discernible powerful political players in the region are Ethiopia and Kenya supported by western countries, namely USA, France and Britain. In this conference, they will deliver very guarded and planned speech to the Somali fragmented groups with no opportunity given to present their incoherent ideas, following guidelines on how to implements speech key points.
In addition, conference’s itinerary will be strictly managed by hosting country-Britain, and probably Somali attendants will be allocated limited time to present their case as conference activities are preplanned. Thus, Somaliland participants will not only waste their precious times by attending, but will devalue their patriotic principles and will not get sufficient time to present their factual case.
Mr. President, we would like to replay you our recollection as a reminder – you are the President of Somaliland, officially and democratically elected by his own people. We are extremely concerned about attending this meeting as your presidential value will be devalued and will be sitting with warlords who represent no one but themselves. We believe that the fundamentals of convening this conferencing is to prolong Somalia civil war and its misery and not aiming on how to find ever-lasting solution; they would like to see all Somalis in same boat including Somaliland. Their philosophy sounds like “put all your eggs in one basket”.
Long live Somaliland
Mohammed Abdi Awciise Bahdoon
