If somebody believes Somaliland cannot govern by themselves, and would not work without the rest of Somalia; the Somalilanders figures their country can do better without the rest of Somalia.  Some rumors said, all Somaliland Officials, and elders are two side of the same coin, because both would favor concessions to prevent a split, and support what they call national unity.   We are asking all the present Somaliland Officials and elders to speak out, so that their people could judge who can provide the leadership Somaliland needs to achieve the goals of the second chance of their independence.  Very few people become ahead of only intended to kill the good hope of their people; dreams that were designed to resist from recovering the tragic death that was planned to provoke civil war between the brothers and sisters of Somaliland.  Where are their positions in the society for those who want to betray their people and country; those who are encouraging to divide their people into groups?


Obviously, the issue and the idea of sovereignty for Somaliland will not die, even if some of its present prominent Officials and elders work hard to create again the unification between Somaliland and the rest of Somalia.  So whatever that recommended, and whatever resolution were passed between them, and those from the rest of Somalia; they have to realize that there are other people in Somaliland; plenty of young people who might continue to succeed their dreams of building the nation of Somaliland.  This politicians and elders must understand that emotions are running high against them.  Who hope those of you who came to power and started the reforms in Somaliland understand the consequences, and the dangers to withstand the numerous challenges ahead.  They will either become heroes, though, and ruthless Somaliland patriots, or weak, defeated, and persons without prestige for the rest of their lives within the nation of Somaliland.  Somaliland is now independent, and its people would never forgive their leaders, if they repeat the same mistake of July 1, 1960; that has led the destruction of their land, and the massacre of their beloved people.


Somalilanders should put their emphasis on national, rather than giving priority to personal interests, and the interests of other countries and people.  We have to remember that we are entering an era, where every state in the world is shifting towards national interest.  There will be tremendous liberation of energy and collective enthusiasm in Somaliland, if we do take on this challenge.   That must be the goal and the motivation of the people of Somaliland.  We consider our people entrepreneurs, education, and democratic, and they will establish and implement democratic institution.  We must appreciate the brightness and the strength of our people.


Our freedom and independence, long our most cherished possession will exist only in the history books, if we do not show our sovereignty and our territorial integrity to the international community.  We have to realize that we are not different from the former Yugoslavia and the former Soviet Union,  Sudan, Ethiopia, who break up into different independent countries.  If Southern Sudan, Eretria, Ukraine, Latvia, Estonia, Croatia, and Bosnia can be a sovereign countries, why not in Somaliland?  We have to have the will, the political will, and the collective will.  In addition to that, Somaliland was an independence from the British Empire before Southern Somalia got their independence from the Italian government.  For that reason exercising our right of self determination the democratic world will grant recognition to Somaliland without hesitation.  Because all people have the right of self-determination.  By virtue of that right they freely determine their political statues and freely pursue their economic, social, and cultural development.


As the date of recognition and liberation approached, Somaliland will inevitably be a strong sovereign nation again.  The only most dangerous mistake we could make is to ignore our difference.  We can have an opposition, but we must find ways to disagree without damaging the statehood of Somaliland.  The inspiration for the true leap forward for Somaliland must come from within the people making up the nation.  Everybody must know that all Somalilanders believe and understand that the past can no longer be recreated, and there will be no more of the artificial nation-state of the co-called great Somalia.  









  1. Somaliland died when Puntland was established and Khaatumo state buried them with a white cloth.

  2. Wonder why this writer didn't write his lettter in Somali if it was intended for nation of Somaliland. Qorayaasha waxaan kula talinayaa markay maqaal inglish ku qoraan in isaga oo Somali ahna ay soo raaciyaan or let poeple like me to transilate their work, I feel that majority of the poeple whom such information was intended are missing out.

  3. Why do they still prefer to call themselves "Somaliland" when in fact they don't even like being Somali or being associated with? I have suggested Garadagland, Garanwaaland, Grieveland for them…

    Leave our Somalinimo alone guys otherwise your back in Tigray region with your black gum aunties 🙂 I now understand where you get the idea of always playing the victim, Tigrays have that gene.

    • waaa run eee somaliland waxba ma ahan waaa qabiil uun oo raba in ay ka iibsadaan dalkooda ethiopia

  4. I have a dream that my children will one day live in Somalia where they will not be judged or discriminate by the Qabiil/Tribe they are. Insha'ALLAH.

  5. Somalia and Somalis, suffer from a curable disease, a disease that requires no doctor or medication. All you need, is a look with in, and make a conscious decision to put your nation above all, except your religion. We live in a world today where nations and sometimes even regions, or in the case of the EU a Continent, collectively perusing their interest. Yet we Somalis are too obsessed with tribalism and greed, which brings to the question I will ask, to all the secessionist die hard.

    Why won't you join a Federal Somalia, where you have more room for good negotiations, instead of IC recognition, which may never come?

    Do you not realise that Somalia is changing before your very eyes and that Somalia, will not look like the way it did, before the federal Constitution, do you not realise that whole regions of Somalia, will together and form new regions, do you not realise that the IC considers S/Land part of Somalia, which means as you sit on the sidelines, do you not realise that the only people who recognize the British boarders you claim are you and you alone, not even Britain. Do you realise that colonization was an event of the past and that most nation who suffered this fate are, typically multi-ethnic and ignoring the colonials broeders in their case, would be disastrous and would see Africa become a Continent of secession. Where the IC sees Somalia in a whole different light.

    The IC sees Somalia as one people who have joined after colonization, who suffered corrupt Governments and dictators, do you really think that the IC is not aware of the actually facts on the ground concerning SomaliLand. Do you think that they are not aware of all the little dirty secrets you would like to hide. So why talk BS to them, to us and yourselves. When everybody knows that this is BS is going nowhere. Why not be more constructive and genuine in moving beyond the old and past Somalia, and help establish the Somalia of the future, where one will not discriminated against on the bases of tribe and region. Because truly that is the one of the main cause behind all the chaos we as a people suffered.


    Equating Somaliland to countries who suffered civil wars on the bases of ethnicities and religion, will not bring you recognition, ignoring the suffering of all other Somalis, and just focusing on yours will not bring you recognition. Making outlandish claims that all Somalilanders support your quest, is only a determent to you and your likes. Advocating for the so called Somaliland state is a joke as well as claiming democracy, when there is no freedom speech in Somaliland in it self. Where if someone talked against and challenged the the Government, would hush or brought up on silly charges. First ascertain the true meaning of Democracy and then think and talk of recognition.

    • It is not the duty of british to recognise our border but you should understand that there was border before the fake unity and the whole world knows that and you lie to us and you yourself knows that there was border between Somalia and The Republic of Somaliland and it is you that you're talking BS and meaningless comment without using your brain. The people of The Republic Of Somaliland they have already decided and the whole world knows that there is no way back.

  6. Isn't this be the one sided news press….you house all the bugs that come home here to bad mouth the independent state of Somaliland…the only light in the whole of Africa..for those of you who think somaliland will just vanish….you silly the the Brits
