ONCE UPON A TIME IN DEFENCE OF JUBALAND

Toronto, May 20, 2013 – “Face-saving starts with: 1. Appreciation and recognition of reality on the ground today in Jubbaland without artificially painting or treating the election of “Ahmed Madoobe” as disputed or unconstitutional. 2. Removal of any doubt about the letter and spirit of the Somali Federal Provisional Constitution regarding the formation of federal states without any further double talk and wishy-washy ramblings or reluctance to adhere to the relevant articles. 3. Acknowledgement of wrongs of the Civil War and serious commitment to addressing them and restoring trust in central authorities and current leadership. Otherwise, any good intentions of the international community to help out Somalia one last time would be in vain and that could be the beginning of the end of Somalia as we knew it. Make no mistake!”
