SOMALIA’S SHAM ELECTIONS RISK RENEWED CIVIL WAR
WHAT is happening in Somalia now is holding fixed parliament elections before our eyes, discarding any notion that we had learned anything from the mayhem of three decades of turmoil and statelessness. A failed state still means nothing to most Somalis, based on my personal observations.
At moment, we are at brink of a renewed civil war. If we don’t step back, that could herald the end of Somalia as we knew it. It looks with more certainty that we won’t have a 2nd chance this time around, if we don’t stop Federal election shenanigans immediately. We have never seen a history of such sham elections, where the entire command and directors of intelligence service (NISA) of a country had conspired to steal an election with the help and consent of a Head of State and Head of Government. This is beyond serious development. It is a felony.
Shall we continue sleepwalking along this trajectory of doom, or hold back to survive? This decision is ours only, and no one else to blame for our stupidity.
