We have more expectations and bigger issues to deal with other than entangling ourselves with trivial issues.

It is high time that we should come of political age other than reverting to Stone Age barbarian on tribal lines.

Given that the next general elections are less than a year and a half away this is definitely not the time for rattling over petty things. This should be the time to reflect back hence mend the ways and means to fortify the threshold of harmonious setting. Such fortress t is one that needs to aid in sustaining, maintaining and bonding of peace, stability and unity, which indeed is definitely a pre-requisite in aspiring for a solid statehood.

Our parliamentarians are surely treading on a thin ice whose slippery nature is a do or die situation for them.

Whereas this column has for a long time been heaping barbs upon barbs in brooding consternations atop their “honours” as a result of their own-making, below expectation servitude, we quickly once more caution them not to bring our nation into disrepute.

While we are well aware of the time our MPs have lost, its repercussions have been untold amount of money lost, policy set-backs, un-necessary tag-of-wars or what-have- you blows dealt to the members of the public to whom they are hugely indebted in.

Of course we support the President when he states that the legislature, just as the executive, is an arm of state whose conducts are limited to their constitutional margins.

In whatever qualms, issues, conducts or so called services the House has as far the nation and the people of the land are concerned, they should be not only rest assured, but definitely warned, that the country would not allow to be put in an ugly situation because of their whims, wants, confusions or whatever one may call it.

We want development and not to be hold in ransom by a legislative assembly who may not even know in the first place as to why they were elected, where they were elected to or what they are supposed to be or do.

This is not the first time that we hear them yelling loudly as to holler cries of foul.

They have always, time and again accused the government of meddling into their affairs.

If they are indeed the honourable people they are supposed to be, how would they make such claims repeatedly?

Do they want hold the country hostage by perpetually indulging into petty issues that do not concern those who elected them in the remotest sense?

The latest to cry foul, unashamedly, is none other than the Speaker of the House himself. That the President has come out clearly on the MPs’ cry of foul is now quite vividly on record.

The Head of State has been categorical that the government was in no way whatsoever indulging or interfering with the goings at the August house.

That much said, it is now incumbent upon the MPs to follow their expected cue and conduct their businesses in the proper fashion expected.

Reiterating herein, we do once more, remind the MPs to know priorities that the nation wants and deal with the real needs that abounds thereof.

We are tired with un-commonsensical issues which beckon clannish and tribal emotions always catered for egotistical whims.

We are tired, again, on petty issues that leaves us more tattered and weathered then we were before.


  1. The barbarian in chief is none other than Siilaanyo. He is the chief clanist of our state. He drew a red line in the city of Burao dividing it into East and West along tribal lines. The situation in Burao is such that it is volatile, soaked with gasoline, waiting for a trigger to ignite.fire. Nobody crosses the red line. Even the schools are segregated along the red line. Siilaanyo created this mess and it should not be allowed. We, Somalilanders of all stripes need not allow the situation to get out of hand. We need to call for urgent conferences to do our best to solve the problem on our own that is if Siilaanyo and his political hooligans (hooligans represent both the East and West communities) do not interfere with us.

  2. Sad how a guy not even born in Burao like this Silanyo is blamed for all the stupidity of Burao ppl. Silanyo is from the Siyad era, and behaved like a Siyadist as if that is the only style he knows. It is these new generations who just fail to see that for a new beginning. But they will just replace him with another former Siyadist coffee waiter or truck driver.

  3. Are you telling us Presdient and his group have to behave and do whatever they want to the country and its people, but MPs can not say anything? That is undemocratic and believe me when goverment disagrees something good will come out !

  4. It is a curious fact, and makes life interesting, that, generally speaking, none of us have any expectation that things are going to happen till the very moment when they do happen. We wake up some morning with no idea that great happiness is at hand, and before night it has come, and all the world has changed for us, or we wake bright and cheerful, with never a guess that the clouds of sorrow are lowering in our sky, to put the sunshine out for a while, and before noon all is dark. Nothing whispers of either the joy or the grief. No instinct tells to delay or to hasten the opening of the latch of the door at which stands the messenger of good or ill.

    Nothing whispered to Somaliland people, as they cast their votes for Siilaanyo in the last presidential election, that evil intends of Siilaanyo are at their door steps. Things are very much in the air in Somaliland politics at this moment. The parliament session was closed today and police cordoned the parliamentary building. The opposition parties and some liberal politicians are having a meeting in Ambassaor Hotel.

    People reap what they grow. He who always blessed Somaliland will bless it again.


  6. Somali land's parliament are elected by the public to legislate for the nation, but it seems that they are not doing their job properly. They are busy with political wrangling which, if it continues in the way it is going on at present, will waste the nation's efforts to compensate for it had lost in the past. The people of Somali land should not accept from the legislators to stray from their obligations. This means that in the event that they endanger the nation's peace and stability, they should be terminated constitutionally through the constitutional court.

  7. As long as Mr. Cirro wears two huts, the party chairmanship and the speaker of parliament hut. I do not see good thing coming out of Somaliland parliament. In order for this parliament to fuction, Mr. Cirro, should step aside from speakership and concentrate on being a party chair and champaign for higher office in the land which is the prsident of Somaliland.
