“XASAN SHIIKH MAXAMUUD INTUU YAQAANAY WAA DHAAFTAY” (Hassan Sheikh Mohamud is doing more than he could handle).

Wada Ogool” (Governing by Consensus) and “Soomaali Wada Heshiis ah, Dunidana Heshiis la ah” (Somalis in agreement with themselves and with the world community) were big slogans and promises President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud repeatedly uttered during his presidential campaign for election or re-election, given he broke the Somali Doctrine for the first time in Somali history (winning re-election). That was quite impressive. But election campaign promises became inconvenient to keep once elected, and now he is doubling-down on Former President Farmajo’s disdain for consensus building and working with Federal Member States. Strangely, he started governing by non-stop foreign visits without his new government in place, something even Farmajo couldn’t do. He made high profile appointments immediately after he was sworn-in. It took him more than a month to screen out able and potential candidates for efficient Cabinet. While he was busy in unilateral decision-making on Cabinet formation and foreign visits without even his foreign policy team instituted, a few things were happening:

  1. Alshabab got bolder and deadlier;
  2. Ethiopia stepped in to reconnect with Federal Member States;
  3. Scramble for Miraa import from Kenya was occurring in Mogadishu among supporters and non-supporters of Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in Mogadishu.

Since his campaign promises meant nothing now, political cynicism sets in in most Somali regions. It looks that Mohamud didn’t take advantage of popular optimism generated by the recent change of guard in Villa Somalia. Can he mend things and regain lost momentum? Some observers say that HSM’s mind on governance is already set like his predecessor, but in the case of HSM, he is a micromanager, who wouldn’t delegate even to his Prime Minister.

Have your say.

Waxaad noo sheegtaa nooca federaalka ay soomaaliya qaadatay

Su’aasha kor ku xusan ayaa lasoo weydiyey Warsame Digital Media WDM. Waa tan jawaabtu:

Dawladda Federaalku waxay ka koobantahay sadex heer:

  1. Dawladda Dhexe
  2. Dawladaha Xubnaha ka ah tan Dhexe
  3. Dawlado deegaanno oo hoos yimaada dawladaha xubnaha ka ah tan dheexe. Waxay leeyihiin golayaal deegaan, meesha kuwa kale leeyihiin sadexta qaybood ee dawlad heerkooda (dhexe, gobolleed, deegaan). Dawlad-gobolleedyo waxay u yihiin dawlad dhexe dawladaha deegaannada. Dawlad-gobolleedyadu iyana waa in ay xukunka sii baahiyaan ila heer tuulo-deegaan. Deegaannadu waa ay yeeshaan la haansho talo iyo mashaariic waxqabad iyo hurumarineed.
  4. Awoodda Dawladdu waa u kala qaybsantahay madaxweynaha iyo Golaha Wasiirrada. Waaxa kaloo kala qaybsan awooddaha sadexta qaybood ee dawladda. Madaxweynu waa madaxxa jamhuuriyedda, mana laha awood ka baxsan dastuurka. Wasiir koowaad waa afhayeenka Golaha wasiirrada iyo guddoomiyaha fadhiyadda golaha. Wasiirka koowaad ma laha awood ka baxsan golaha. Madaxweynuhu ma marooqsankaro awood aan dastuurku u ogalayn.
  5. Waxaa jira xukun baahis iyo wadaag khayraadka dalka, oo laga kabo dhanka dhaqaalaha, dawladaha xubnaha aan isku filayn. Sidaa waxa meesha ka baxaya ku tagrilfal awoodda dawladnimo iyo dib u dhac gobollada qaarkood.
  6. Awooddaha sida loo kala leeyahay Dastuurka Federaalka ayey ku qorantahay, wuxuuna hadda dastuurka qabyo-qoraalku u baahanyahay dhamaystir iyo in loo qaado afti dadweyne.
  7. Waxaa dhacaya doorashooyin guud.
  8. Sidaa awgeed, nidaamka federaalku waxaa lagu tilmaama heerkii ugu toolmoona ee dimoqraatiyada.

Fiiro Gaar ah:

Haddii dawladda dheexe shaqayn weydo, ama burburto, dawladaha kale ayaa shaqaynaya. Ma dhacayso 1991 dhambe.



Now that Somalia has narrowly come back from the brink of disaster caused by the outgoing President, Farmajo, the hard job of restoring trust and faith between Federal institutions and Federal Member States begins.
Two points need to be raised here:

  1. Will Farmajo stay away from interfering in the electoral process to which he said he entrusted in the prime minister?
  2. Will Prime Minister Roble play fair in handling issues raised by Puntland and Jubaland with regards to thorny constituency issues and need for the independence of Federal Electoral Commission?

Farmajo is still the commander of the armed and security forces. It is to be seen how he would behave in keeping the forces politically neutral with regards to the electoral process.

Hawiye opposition leaders (mainly Council of Presidential Candidates, CPC) have organized militia and portion of residents of Mogadishu in their attempts to challenge Farmajo’s illegal extension of mandate in April 12, 2021. Would they scale back and demobolize these forces for political environment conducive to holding peaceful elections, or would they use this new anti-Farmajo movement for opportunistic political gains? We will know the turn of these trends in the coming weeks. But, one thing still holds true: These elections will be taugh and rocky. This is a price to pay for democracy.
