The undersigned traditional elders have issued a statement forfeiting their role in peace-making and conflict resolution. Instead, they put more fuel to the fire. Their partial recommendations to the Puntland Government is flatly unacceptable. It is an offer designed for Puntland Government to reject outright.
These titled #elders in #Bari Regions of #Puntland State have proved to be a party to Bosaso standoff. They have finally lost any credibility for the good of Puntland.
It is historically important to note that these titled elders, who have issued this document represent exactly the same sub-clans in Bari Region that rose against Puntland President then, Abdullahi Yusuf, exactly for the same reasons for power struggle in 2000-2001.
