    • LOL who are they gonna search if the airport is closed, this Khat heads must be great jokers.

      • They will spy on the number of goats and sheep going to Djibouti market. They can't even get drinking water and they keeping themselves busy with few rusted cameras and are "news worthy".

  1. appreciated goes to government of somaliland but need much improvement in training and employing right indigenous skillfully well equip and have knowledge of participation of reception of welcoming foreigners and investor not severely taking as relative or so clan to handle airport issues.furthermore we are pitiful what happened in recruitment of exam taken in burao togdheer region of ministry of finance for temporary workers was outfit and odd.

  2. In the civilized world survilliance represent invasion of piracy, control, 'big brother', lack of liberty and human rights but in Garadagland they represent 21 years of "progress" and achievement. They are just few old cameras donated by UK so they can spy on UK returnees and refugees….this place represents black spots and by connecting them to the grid now they know where UK Somalis are travelling to.

    Let me congratulate the separatists for obtaining few rusted cameras in 21 years. Job well done. I won't be using Berbera when I travel there in the next few months…I don't need separatists sharing a video of me with their single daughters "adeer wiilkan ka waraan ma ku aroosna?"

    • I though you were from hargaisa, so why are you saying "deer wiilkan ka waraan ma ku aroosana?".

      KKKKKKKK sheegato bin Congo

  3. This is a step in the right direction! Any modern state has to defend its people and make sure things run smoothly anyone complaining about big brother has the option not to come to Somaliland. If you cant handle a proper screen at the mofo airport then you have no business visiting in civilized nation!

  4. I'm going to do the Gangnam style at the empty airport while waving the Somali flag and just watch the separatists spit out their last khat. The only reason many of them didnt like Siad government was because he tried to ban khat.
