The move by IGAD mercenaries to airlift bogus delegates to Kismayo last
week in order to attend illegal meeting aimed to approve the invasion of
certain clans including refugees from Kenya and Ethiopia, was enough to be
considered as a declaration of war against the people living in Jubba
Despite knowing the fact on the ground, instructions of some western
countries have made IGAD mercenaries to approve blindly illegal clan
communiqué issued under the name of IGAD last year.
The communiqué issued by clan warmonger Mahbub Mohamed, the current
Secretary General of IGAD, indicated that the Ogadeni refugees from
Ethiopia and a new bunch of Ogadenis from Kenya are the genuine owners of
Jubbaland regions in southern Somalia, while labeling the majority groups
in the region as minorities. The unhidden truth in the region and among
all Somalis is that there is only one district all over Somalia, which is
inhabited by the local Ogadenis, who are lawfully Somali citizens.
The conspiracy of conducting the Kismayo conference was announced by
Sheikh Mohamud Aw Libah, self styled Ahlu Sunna leader, who himself comes
from central Somalia regions. With instructions from Ogadeni officials in
Kenyan government, officials from the so called Puntland region (there is
no official region called Puntland in Somalia’s constitution and history
as well), and officials from Zone Five region in Ethiopia, Aw Libah
denied that the conference was being sponsored by the IGAD puppets.
While enjoying the support of few western countries that have resources
interests in Jubbaland, the refugees, who call themselves the future
leaders of Jubbaland, tend to forget that the word has come out long ago
to make sure their conspiracy fails.
In 1960 there was a shooting at Sharpeville, in South Africa, which
resulted in proclamation of a state of emergency and the declaration of
the ANC as an unlawful organization. This is what the great hero Nelson
Mandela said after the event: “My colleagues and I, after careful
consideration, decided that we would not obey this decree. The African
people were not part of the government and did not make the laws by which
they were governed”.
By quoting this piece of Mandela’s speech, the people of Jubbaland have
one responsibility which is to respond to the declaration of war made by
IGAD. Their first and last responsibility is to fight by any means.
History tells us that no community in this world has acquired its rights
and liberations with mere talks. Many people in the world preferred to
fight as a result of unrest and frustration because the perceived foreign
rule or invaders’ rule to be a form of exploitation and mistreatment,
which served only to further economic interests for the enemy . Like the
case of Wagosha community, they have to bear in mind that in order to
disrupt the plans of the enemies, they do not need to have military tanks
or modern sophisticated weapons. Your role will simply be a role of
destroying which is always cheaper than any other thing.
The Wagosha community was always ready to engage in talks, when deciding
the future of their land, but when all these calls were ignored, the
alternative, which is armed struggle, has to work.
Kenya, Ethiopia conspiracy
The shaky government of Ethiopia and Kenya, who are struggling with
political and ethnic divisions in their countries, do always come up with
plans which risk the stability of the region.
An official in the Ogadeni armed groups in Ethiopia, told western media
that their group was offered a settlement in Jubbaland if they stopped the
fighting against Addis Ababa, when peace talks between Ethiopia and ONLF
held in Kenyan capital, Nairobi last year.
Another international diplomat said it’s the western countries that are
pushing for Jubbaland bias plans, that favour the Ogadeni armed refugee
Despite waiting for many years, finally, in 1991, the people of Hiiraan
region in central Somalia and Somaliland succeeded to kick out the Ogadeni
armed refugees from their lands. This has not come through dialogue but
armed struggle with genuine cause, like the cause of Wagosha community.So
its always possible when there is a will.
You were born free to decide for your future, and not to wait others
decide for your fate. Kenyans and Ethiopians will not be here in Somalia
forever, because even the dictator Siyad Barre had to go by force after
many years of settling Ogadeni armed refugees in the country.
Using guerrilla war the armed liberation struggle
Bearing in mind that the enemy has more weapons than the indigenous people
is not a genuine reason not to fight for your rights. During the
Vietnamese war the local people operated within their own districts. When
necessary, small regional units would unite for large scale attacks. If
enemy pressure became too great, they would break down into smaller units
For the most part, recruits were young teenagers, who were motivated by
idealism, confidence and their ability to fight heavily armed and
well-trained American soldiers.
In this holy war, you have even a strong reason to fight, because the
Islamic religion allows you to defend your sovereignty and rights, even if
it amounts in killing enemy soldiers and their supporters.
Wagosha people have also another genuine reason to turn their weapons to
the enemies. When the unreported genocide of thousands of people took
place against Wagosha in 1990ties, yet the international agencies allowed
humanitarian aid to be diverted and used to fund warlord General Mohamed
Said Morgan, who led the massacre of the innocent people.
The armed struggle has to be in gradual steps like in the Vietnamese war,
where local guerrillas were given only a basic minimum of infantry
training, but if they were recruited to a main force unit, they could
receive up to a month of advanced instruction. Additionally, there were
dozens of hidden centers all over South Vietnam for squad and platoon
leader, weapons and radio training. To ensure that the guerrillas
understood why they were fighting, all training courses included political
Many weapons, including booby traps and mines, were homemade in villages.
The materials ranged from scavenged tin can to discarded wire, but the
most important ingredients were provided by the enemy. In a year, dud
American bombs could leave more than 20,000 tons of explosives scattered
around the Vietnamese countryside. After air-raids, volunteers retrieved
the duds and the dangerous business of creating new weapons began.
Local forces also designed primitive weapons, some designed to frighten
intruders, but others were extremely dangerous. “Punji traps” — sharp
spikes hidden in pits — could easily disable an enemy soldier. Punjis were
often deliberately contaminated to increase the risk of infection. This
kind of a weapon is not different from the traditional weapons the Wagosha
people used in the 17th century to prevent the invasion of Somali pastoral
clans from capturing the Goshaland.
Having all these tactics empowered with modern techniques, it’s obvious
that the struggle will reach another level until the final liberation
Death to the invaders,
Victory to Wagosha liberation
Fight for your rights, failure to it you are breaking Islamic values
Goshaland will be liberated at last
