  1. What a bunch of unprincipled rabble! It shows that Somaliland politics after 20 years of democracy are still primitive state where none of the political parties have an ideology or set of principles that underpins them except the primeval machinations of base clan bickering.

    For starters where is our last president? As soon he lost the elections he just upped and left not to be heard of again. His “party”, the Party that egal built, disappeared with him. It is close to treachery
