HARGEISA, 27 September 2009 (Somalilandpress) – Many Somalilanders, living in the country and abroad, have been warning the nation for several years that president Riyaale is not committed to Somaliland cause for independence but he is a committed betrayer who is digging deep grave for Somaliland sovereignty and recognition to destroy it for Somalia. The sequence of the subversive, political developments in Somaliland undoubtedly prove that what has been warned of before has materialized. Dahir Riyaale is a national traitor whose dictatorship has nothing to do for power-love but for bringing down Somaliland. Dahir Riyaale, his supporters, and foreign conspirators, who are in the treason together, have been plotting against Somaliland independence since the beginning of his wrongful presidency in 2003 with the final objective of plunging Somaliland into civil wars to create a situation similar to that of Somalia where lawlessness and anarchy reign for 19 years. These anti-Somaliland groups believe that civil wars is the only weapon to kill the dreams of Somaliland people for independent Somaliland assuming that it would create a desperate situation that leaves Somaliland people no option or choice other than reuniting with Somalia unconditionally.

Dahir Riyaale, Ismael Gelleh, the dictator-at-dusk of Djibouti, and the changing leaders of the failed state of Somalia have been involved in a Destroy-Somaliland-plan for the last 7 years. This devised political conspiracy against Somaliland independence has four-step plan designed to succeed in bringing down Somaliland. To succeed in killing Somaliland independence, the order of this Four-Step Plan to Destroy Somaliland is set up as follows:-

1. Discarding and abandoning Somaliland constitution to create a subversive dictatorship in the country eliminating the powers of the judicial and legislative branches and blocking or disrupting their constitutional services with coercive police force.

2. Ruining and bankrupting Somaliland economy with massive corruptions and bribes to weaken national sustainability, survivability and viability so that the country can not stand on its own feet.

3. Undermining and secretly fighting Somaliland recognition during visits to foreign countries creating suspicion and hesitation in countries that would otherwise recognize Somaliland. The country would be recognized by now if not damaged.

4. Holding onto the power of the country blocking presidential elections with all costs and with limitless term extensions by bribed Guurti members until civil wars are created in the country that turn it into failed state where violence and anarchy reign so that Somaliland people live in despair that forces them to reunite with violent Somalia unconditionally. Riyaale`s deafening silence about Eil Bardaale armed clashes is a part of this conspiratorial plan.

It is clear now that the traitor, Dahir Riyaale, and his anti-Somaliland groups, with the help of worthless penny-chasers who do not care the people and the country, have succeeded in carrying out the first three steps of the Four-Step Plan to Destroy Somaliland and now they are actively involved in implementing the fourth step. Without the existence of this Four-Step Plan to Destroy Somaliland, Somaliland would never be in the current heart-breaking political situation. Because Dahir Riyaale is committed to bring down Somaliland, he has to reject all national and international calls to respect the constitution of the country and he has to purposefully breach all agreements intended to solve the political impasse. One should not or must not expect that Dahir Riyaale and cronies are willing to hold fair presidential elections in the country knowing what they have done to it.

The only solution to save Somaliland from total destruction is, as recommended by many, to immediately remove Daahir Riyale and his regime from power as soon as possible with an organized and prepared popular uprising (Kacdoon Qaran) led by the Opposition Parties and other opposition movements targeting the residences, offices, and barracks of clan-based presidential police of Dahir Riyale and his regime. Now it is time to choose liberating uprising over killing silence. It is the nationalistic, patriotic duty of the armed forces and police to support the national uprising for Somaliland salvation. After removing Dahir Riyaale from power, the Opposition Parties have to form an interim government of national consensus that restores Somaliland reputation around the world and that paves the way for democratic presidential and parliamentary elections in one year.

During this struggle for Somaliland cause, Somaliland politicians and writers should be careful of using statements like: “It is the end of Somaliland”, “It is the beginning of Somaliland destruction”, “It is over for Somaliland.” Somaliland is a country and a nation and will survive well the current unfavorable situation. This nation survived the atrocities of Siyad Barre`s Regime and will defeat the current treasonous regime headed by Dahir Riyaale, even if necessary with the sacred blood of its sons and daughters as done before. No nation disappears from the surface of the Earth but sometimes faces difficult time. These statements will only give political victory to the enemies of Somaliland and it is wise to stop. Long Live Somaliland!.

  1. Brother Ibrahim is right. My Somaliland brothers and sisters we should have patience. What is needed at the moment are people who are pure Somalilander, loyal, open minded, considered and thoughful to their civilians not Riyale and his buddies ministers.

    The young generations are extremely unfortunate to see such a hoplessness administration. Now the ball is the somaliland peeople, we court to unite to provide both moral and financial support for this noble couse( Kacdoon Qaran)

  2. Personal opinions should not be set as a news.Articles like this could put their authors in courts if they were asked to proof. This is a very dangerous accusation against the president of Somaliland and if the author has the proof let him forward to us because this will hand him to be impeached.But if he does not, let him apologise and promise not to do such dangerous fabrications again.

    • I am really disgusted to read your one side support in which you have given to Mr Riyale, as we may well know Mr Riyale is arrogant lazy and incompentant leader he lacks the charactersitcs of a modern leader, to be a good leader you should have the following,
      1. Intellegence
      2. baravery
      3.leadership envirnment
      and a lot more to be more specific Mr Riyale has commited atrocities and he is still defiant to implement the articles of the constitution, needless to go back and list his violations of the constituion.
      las but not least i advise you Mr Ali Omer to mind your words.

  3. I am totally fed up of Riyaale's antics and hope that he is gone sooner rather than later, but serious accusations such as those mentioned in this article should not be made if there is no evidence to support it. Such baseless accusations are unprofessional for a journalist and unethical for a Muslim.

    God bless Somaliland.

  4. I don’t think the issue is far too worse as it is put here. It is likely to push those in power into further wrongdoings and every bit of what is said in this article, even if not done earlier.

  5. This brother who wrote this article is very dangerous man. We don’t know what is in the people’s hearts but we judge the action. The action one may take is the only what is count or determined.

    Mr. Riyale is not the man that the authors want people to believed. Although it is the best interest of Riyale himself to stepdown right now, what this kind of article is promuting is even more dangerous than the sitution we are in.

    Is the authors think he know who is for or against Somaliland independent. Is he Mr. Knowall and he know what is in every single Somalilanders heart. Is he one of the few of us who are bias because there are hiden agendy they want sell.

    The writer is misleading the readers that what he doesn’t like about Mr. Riyale not because he doesn’t want Riyale to leave but Riyale belong to people he think they are not real Somalilanders but fake. Finnally, does he think Riyale is Somaron;therefore, Samarons, were historyly for Somali united. Don’t forget citizen of Somalilanders have their choices.

    Be honest to yourself, if you want to have Somaliland that there is room for everyone of us,stop digging grave of Somliland. Come out of the cage and tell the people what is in your heart because you have nothing to back up your accusations that Mr. Riyale is there for destroying of Somaliland and recovering for Somalia simple because Riyale is not belong people you think are real Somalilanders. Ask yourself who is the real and fake Somalilanders that you are painting. You also saying all Somalialnders who voted for him were also stupped and they voted agaist Somalialnd.

  6. Let's call a spade, a spade.
    The fact is that when any "Nin Madhow" assumes poweer, they simply do not reliqish. Why ? They are simply corrupt and are afraid to face justice.
    Their motto is "Till death"


  7. Riyaale is up to no good. Everything is possible. Like most of Somalilanders, I personally lost respect and don't trust him at all. Whatever evil deeds he has a hand in should bounce back to him. It will affect him at the present and the future if he is still alive, that is.
