Garowe, 7, 2019

The Garowe Gathering between the Leaders of the Somali Federal Government and Heads of federal Member States shall be concluded soon with the outcome of one of three scenarios:

1. An unexpected Somali-style breakthrough tonight or tomorrow morning, a remote possibility, given the irreconcible positions of the parties involved.

2. A wishy-washy understanding with the intention of face-saving only.

3. A total collapse with parties calling for and attending separate press conferences to spin their own respective take on the failure of the meeting to reach tangible objectives by bridging gaps.

Stay tuned.
