THE APOCALYPSE OF THE FEDERALISM IN SOMALIA, WITH NO ALTERNATIVE
Ismail Warsame responded: While this guy have some arguments to make, he shows his shallow knowledge of how federalism came to be in Somalia. Just ask him whether Federalism is defacto or dejure? If it is defacto caused by the Civil War, then nothing short of another war can destroy it. That scenario, barring political destabilization, is unlikely. Having said that, the complaint against vices of unitary government and regional underdevelopment because of it, precedes even the Civil War.
All Farmaajo is doing will come to a nought because it is not based on today’s reality of Somalia. Yes, he had done harm, but in the end he will fail.
