I thought Kheyre was share [a] holder and NN government was based on tripartite agreement between the three top officials. I sense now that NN is nothing but one man’s company and the other two guys (Farmajo & Kheyre) plus head of the parliament, Mursal are running the company. While Farmajo and Mursal were close and obedient servants to the owner of the comapany, “Fahad”, Kheyre sow himself with magnifying glasses and thought he could stablish his own kingdom and escape from the tight clinch of his owner, but that ended in a classical Hollywood pre-emptive plot fashion. I wouldn’t surprise this may happen to Farmajo or even the likes of “Fahad Yassin” if they ever try the usual Somali’s way of shifting alliance between warring super powers with their subordinates when they feel uneasy from their dictating policies. Any one who closely observes the current political moves by NN in its foreign policy of confronting against traditional ally, Egypt and forming allience with traditiona enemy, Ethiopia, coupled with its surprising internal politics which Somalis nowadays dubbed it sarcastically as “Intii la yaqaanay wa la isla dhaafay” politics, which literally means, “it is out of our control”, will surely understand the bigger picture of Somalia’s political status quo getting changed strategically in general and tactically NN politics in particular. One may speak out his pride and say Somalia is sovereign state and it took its independence from Italy in 1960. Well, that is true formally, but frankly, Somalia entered another form of colonialism which doesn’t rely more on booties on the ground, but intelligence control of the ellite minds. Any top official fired be it PM or President shall go without any trouble making or cousing political scuffles that may ultimately bring the situation into standstill or total collapse of government system. Well, somalis don’t deserve better than this deal. Below, are the former political status quo in Somalia.
1- Two enemy neigbors that were adamant to divide somalia between them selves
2- Warring clan leaders with ties to these two enemies and had their sycophants each, that too were adamant to topple the other. In this situation, it is clear, If they are left to themselves, they won’t bring down their fragile government but surely will destroy each other to the bone and join to nearby enemy willingly. It is in the interest of Somalis that East Africa is driven by politics that is outside of its hand in general and somalis manage their internal politics( without noise) in particular. Well, who are these masterminds that control of our politics?
With USA undergoing financial crisis due its continuous interventions in world politics at country levels, giving chance to China and Russia to flourish, now adapted [to a] different strategy of delegating Africa to Turkey and arab puppets to manage while preparing itself to face the bigger threats from China and Russia
