DO YOU RECALL THESE PHOTOS OF CHINSESE PORT, AIRPORT AND ROAD ENGINEERS AT GARA’AD PORT SITE IN AUGUST 24, 2008?

The new GARA’AD Port site is exactly located in the spot assessed at that time. Former Puntland Administration of General Cadde had no political will to go ahead with the construction of GARA’AD Port. The project had a construction component of a Galdogob-Gara’ad Road, passing through the City of Galkayo ( see the red soil of Galdogob in one of the photos).

Later, the Somali Ambassador to China, Amb. Mohamed Awil, had paid a heavy career price for lobbying and bringing in Chinese engineers in Gara’ad in 2008, when the Director General of TFG Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Abdisalam Haji Ahmed Liban (Dabancad)/Habar-Gedir/Indhayar, had accused the Ambassador Awil of favoring Gara’ad instead of Obbia. Dhabancad got the blessing of then Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharma’arke and TFG President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed, to fire the Ambassador from his posting to China.
