Recently, according to well-placed various news sources including Hadhwanaagnews dated on 30th Jan 2013. It was reported that the menacing Arab hunters and their entourage from the Gulf countries had, upon visiting Somaliland, prompted political uproar over what critics changed them to be symbol of evil for illegally siphoning off somaliland’s wild life reserves. Sparked by failure of the government to act.

A spate of organized intellectual views was staged across several cities and towns to heighten awareness. Forever changing the ecosystem for all inhabited creatures, there is mounting evidence which indicate the alleged exploits not only affect the abundance and natural diversity of the wildlife population but is also endangering certain species dwindles close to extinction.

Furthermore, rude disturbance of the wildlife sanctuaries and sudden disruptions of the natural breading habitat add weight to aggravating the situation to a crisis level. Even of more lethal consequence is the serious allegation that concessions include a clandestine sting of oil exploration expedition with the tacit or otherwise explicit approval of the present administration.
First, in his customary way of abusing vested powers, the president of Somaliland, Ahmed Mahmud Silanyo, balking all other options, has opted not to disclose to the public the nature of the Arab’s mission or what he has been given permission for and why? All leads and inquired dried up at his doorstep. Until now, the deal and its terms were sealed and kept under close guarded secrecy of which very few people has access to any of its substance or specific details. Secondly, both the scope of his mysterious operation and the the size of its unusually large crew obviously point toward more complex of a project than what the general public were led to believe through a false-flag misinformation.

As a result, the Arab’s obviously transgression and government conduct in its failure to act appropriate is seen by the public as a source of shame and dishonour forced upon them by circumstances beyond their control.

The evolution of the crisis
It is believed that absence of an effective central government made it all the more difficult to defend somaliland’s territorial jurisdiction and protect both it’s endowed human and natural resources from intrusion of preying enemies. It pitifully contributes to the debacle. The lax security situation encouraged wealthy tycoons and powerful Arabs to freely indulge acting on dream fantasies of having private zoos at the backyards of their surnptuous places or mansions. For these trend-setting dream cheers, realizing lifestyle upgrades of superb amenities of quality comfort and luxury accessible within the confines of their own privacy essentially acquires one much personal respect and recognition sought within the privileged elite circles.

Affording the financial means to avail it corrupt public officials entrusted upon safeguarding such precious natural resources, it is nothing more than an exhilarating game these lunatics. It is all for the search of a sensational “rush” of an intoxicating excitement. Savouring the chance and challenge to embark on such personal pet project and achieving its set goals is considered as the hallmark of reaching heavenly heights in an obsession of no logical goal or reasonable satisfaction.
The recent violent outbursts against the Arab’s exploits has successfully rallied public frustrations and opinions toward fomenting a rebellion against their Excellency’s lust and love-affair’s wildlife reserves, depleting certain species from an endemic level to an extinction. The public’s show of concern through an ever increasing demand for an explanation often fell on deaf ears. But indignant reactions and backslash were fast and unambiguous. Further fanning the flames of a lingering suspicion and lasting alienation. For years, the public resentment built up to precipitate the current soaring tension and saga. It generated a genuine public revolt against a rude exploit out of bound in its desire to take advantage of somali’s international political polarizes and polarization.
Raiding and roaring around between the Golos mountains and grazing grass plains in Sool,snag & Togdheer. The eccentric Arabs seem like a man on a serious hunting mission of his own design and pace. Determine to attain their goals in the most efficient way sustainable, he often employed devices of high-tech with devastating results. From high-flying preying birds to ostriches, zebras, gazelles, antelopes, leopards, and many other rare species, it is certain that their cruel techniques indiscriminately reduced the stock of any particular herd. Registering it to be soon recognized as one of the endangered species. Worse even, reversing such trend afterwards or removing any species from the endangered list is an expensive route that could probably require decades bringing its population back to its original level.
Long beleaguered by political instability, Somaliland has suffered a dramatic identity crisis and still is stuck at the bottom of its hellhole. Little surprises a country like Somaliland that has seen it all. Yet the story of the lucky “Robin Hood price” who keep coming back for the rest of the “loot” has baffled many and caught few politicians off-guard. Unlike before though, the Arabs get way with it this time. Though it repulsed many in the public. Their activities turned to be the most agitating one as covert ambitions of their operation were revealed and their intension exposed. The case became a feeding fodder for news stories where it get passed around in coffee shops for gossiping consumption. Meanwhile, any hard lessons or experiences we need to learn from such tragic event is left for the public to chew on.
Whatever the nature of the Arab shiekh’s mission or purpose is and whatever their ulterior motive or otherwise innocent intentions is, more often it stirred up public sentiment. It ranges from insetting suspicions to a searing raged based on a widely shared feelings of being taken advantage of at a vulnerable time where most somalilanders are still consumed with armed conflicts and factional fighting.
As complaints were lodged and and as exerted pressures on the government bore no immediate fruits, most communities were left with no other choice but to prepare contingency plans to act on their own if need be. Bitterly disappointed with the administration’s lack of action or perhaps incensed with a possible collaboration or collusion thereof, citizens have seriously taken the matter into their own hands. They devised ways to protect, at minimum, the natural resources and wealth located within the proximity of their respective communities.
In their turn to respond to the “call of conscience” the activists who mobilized the public to stand up for what is right in challenging those bent to disrupt the delicate balance of our natural resources in a mission to quench their sumptuous lifestyle and fulfil childhood fantasises deserve to be hailed as national heroes. The less fortunate and week nations who are incapable of defending their territorial turf away from the unscrupulous raiders are usually the targeted victims of such nasty schemes.
Escorted and guarded by a army arranged and backed by the government, the Arab has invincible dared to venture out deep into the rural areas. However, as citizens if we chased them off with vengeance from one district, they only move miles away to the neighbouring area. Such annoying and contemptible practice has only increased the chances for bloodsheds.
Despite all the paid-for clout they could wield, still the Arab were shocked at how indignant communities felt toward their operation. Ever more, the Arab hunters look like the visiting guest who overstayed their welcome, further abusing common privileges and benefits traditionally extended to a guest by any host country in good faith. All these reveal the incompetence of Siilanyo’s government. the ultimate failure is his and his alone.
The impact and implications of this case has yet to be fully chronicled to make Siilanyo accountable sooner or later. Prior the crisis mushroomed into uncontrollable proportion, it should have been given the attention it deserved

  1. dirty arabs get out of our land if ur not gonna do anything according to the law
    silanyo will be swept from power and somaliland will have a bright new future as the power of east africa, making our enemies hide inside a dark hole muhahaha

    • be careful with your loose tongue buddy, btw they throw shoes on presidents when they are angry mohahahaha

  2. Somaliland are barking up the wrong tree. The problem is not Siilaanyo. That he does know what is going on in the country is nothing new. Nor is his inabiity to know what is going on around a discovery. He has had such defects and dficienceis from day one. His actions do not also sell any more. It is a cliche that does not even embellish speech or writing. It is known that the affairs of the country are run by those around him, a gang whose aim is to make money out of the country's meagre resource; and this issue is part of a deal between the gan of four and some wealthy arabi personalites.

    The resources of Somalilnad belong to the public. The people must protect their resources

  3. strange, all that about few people from Arabia in a country that get no to visit. How much wildlife will 5 people take with their ealies. Eng. Make yourself with someting better.

          • Read that BS and the conclusion says it all, some is looking for pay out. By the way isn't HG who massacred and displaced many Somalis from Muqdisho. Also isn't true that original the dominate clan of Mogadishu was Abgaal. Who HG forcefully forced out during the civil war. Do not for second try to convince the Etho's care which Somali they kill, because if that's your logic why are echoes killing other Somalis in Ethiopia, since HG are their only enemy right.

          • @tellmetruth · there are few errors in this article the only real opponents to this government is the MJ's which will be diminished soon.

            The OGs that just came up are already being abandoned by IGAD when they saw SHSM wasn't playing around on top of that… which will be replaced by Sierra Leone = OG's neutralized

            The Hawiye problem to the SFG mainly from the HG and the Murusade will be settled SHSM ain't that stupid to f@@k with people he shares a house with.

            Then you've got the Marehan who pose no danger because of the PM seat and even lesser from the Rahanweyn who got the speaker = this government in few months time when the money rolles in directly in to their hands will be the most powerfullest authority sins the collapse of the Somali republic helped even more by the lifting of the arms embargo ; )

      • Like i've said to you on many occasions (PIS) your only hurting your weak chest you've tried this many times only to end up being karbashed be it with the help of the Ethiopians in 2007 or the Kenyans in Morgans days.

        + This article is a response to your cab driver Faroole reading out the names of the Darood that died in the civil war on one of Punlands radios and blaming it on the Hawiye (i think it was Bosaso if i'am not mistaken).

        • You must be the stupidiest person if you think this govt is gonna be run by hawiye stooges. Do you think we gonna sit by and watch you guys turn everything the PM saciid has tried to build upside down, did you forget sade dar@@d control the govt and Somalia is never gone be ruled by one person. Puntland, khaartumo & jubbaland are here to stay & no hawiye cries are gonna stop federalism of Somalia. Tell me what the hawiye animals reduced xamar to?

          • What is wrong with you idiot? Somalia is for Somalis, go with your retarded tribal mind somewhere else. Honestly, you and (PIS) are fake Somalis. Dumber than the animals, that's what you guys are.

      • (PIS), what is wrong with you? You think talking like that will get you far? Honestly you are disgusting, and you showed how tribal you are. Fake Somali you are.

  4. Somalilandpress I am deeply sorry if i pissed you off mate i know i shouldn't be saying bad things.

  5. Irir Samaale,is this your agenda.
    First it was Daroods of puntland namely the MJs were selling out ONLF. Todays it's the dead, Abdullahi Yusuf openly declared that “Ethiopia was helping Darood put Hawiye into the ocean”. Even if he did say such a thing, why bring it up, the man is dead so are any thoughts and ideas he had in this this life.

    PuntlandGeezer(PIS), why do have to go along with BS and play the ignorant fool. Instead shouldn't you calling people on it. Look at how buuxiye jump to it. He got so excited he even wrote a little evil master plan, I bet he jizzed his pants.

    • Bro we the Hawiye are known not to dwell on the past but this is a response to Faroole reading out the names of the Daroods that died in the civil war through one of Puntland radios and even letting their family participated.

      Also i'm hearing that its already starting to have some affect some people from Bosaso are starting to burn down Hawiye owned shops and a few days ago Faroole told 6000 southerners to leave Punland within one week or face deportation can you believe it being deported from your own country <– please don't tell me that's BS… same tactics the Kenyans are using in Eastleigh

      • Stop your BS we trying to build a nation where your moryaans teared and destroyed everything we left in Xamar so lets forget what happened and not bring up the past

      • irir samaale

        what get to do what faroole said and the subject in hand and if you feel the urge. why not do it other website. another thing is better for us who're onions to be on message or respond if someone is making outrages comments but to honest with you provoked what took place. even thou I give puntland geezer a lot of negative votes and couple of time I chastised him and let me remind you another incident that took place 4or5 days ago this animal call abdiwahab was wishing on bad and awful things every important segment of our community. which we are going to need. if we're going make it anywhere and your respond was. I know you're a humble guy but why are you dividing irir at this particulate time,then at time I left comment for you. It said like this.what so humble about this animal please answer sir before I could get answer the article was removed and replace with the same article without the commented. to included sir if tribalism was great thing or murdering in the name of clan and creating mass graves Somalia would have been in the advance world. I guess that doesn't build nation.It's my great hope we will dump this sickness where it belongs the garbage.

        • @Sahra

          Sis how do i explain this to you we the Hawiye are well known to be a to forgiving people even willing to back others over our own remember Farmaajo ? tell me what other Somali tribe has ever done that i mean with with a genuine face even dying for it ?

          But when certain sects of the Daroods starts using their AUN dead peers for political motives what do you expects us to do + this is not the first time they've tried this

  6. Hanad maybe there's hope for you. I love to see when people think for themselves and form their own opinion.

    • Tellmetruth,
      Hope is always there. If God shuts one door He opens another. I know that the beautiful ones are not yet born.
      Bu expectations are so high that things will take for better sooner than later. The only difference between me and you is that I am a diehard for Somaliland and you'r a diehard for Somaliwyen.

  7. In this world never ever trust anybody blindly, because there is a high chance you will be token advantage of. I got none but love for the average person from the Arab World but there are a lot of arrogant, ignorant, racist wealthy people, who view this world as their play ground. I don't even wanted get started on these pathic royal families.

  8. @tellmetruth

    I couldn't agree with you more tribalism is what really killed us. Somali tribes are like a ticking time bomb which Ethiopian has triggered. I wouldn't point figure on Ethiopian for the chaos in somalia even though they are the perpetrators I would blame on previous Somali leaders like SNM, USC and SSDF for plunging Somalia into lawlessness and endless clan warfare, ironically SNM since declared independence from Somalia.

    Somali galbeed is not different then that of somalia whatever happens in Somalia have an effect on what happens in Somali galbeed. The ONLF leaders themselves are not intelligent persons not only they open the tribal box by first calling themselves as ONLF but depriving and shunning other somali clans thats just plain stupid.
