THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF FARMAAJO’S FAILED PRESIDENCY
GAROWE, 08 SEPTEMBER (ALLSHACABKA)
The Somali federal government has collapsed today as a result of dramatic political events that have been taking place in Kismaayo in recent days. After almost a week of heated deliberations and political hand twisting, the presidents of all the five federal member states concluded to terminate completely all cooperation and contacts with the federal government as a whole. Therefore, with all political and practical purposes, the federal government is rejected and annulled.
Farmaajo is now the “president” of Villa Somalia. He lost the rest of the country.
This is a huge political earthquake in any way one might look at it. First, the presidents of the federal member states showed a rare unity of purpose and political courage that has never been seen in Somali politics in the recent past.
Second, the language of the communiqué issued was a stunning political rejection of Farmaajo’s failed presidency, declaring him and the senior leadership of federal government not only as a bunch of cracked incompetents but as a group of people that are undermining the national security interests of the country as a whole.
Third, the presidents of the federal member states presented facts that did shed light on all the major political and security blunders the senior federal government leadership has made with deadly consequences. Furthermore, they documented the destructive impact of the failure of leadership in the federal government.
Fourth, they accused the federal government of being a threat to the political development in the country by derailing the federalisation and national reconciliation processes. However, the most damning indictment is the destruction of the embryonic Somali institutions including the parliament, the national security agency, the army and the police.
Finally, president Ahmed Madoobe of Jubbaland came out as a skilled politician with a sense of unparalleled Somali patriotism, putting his country and his people first. The political odds were against him as Farmaajo and Fahad Yasin, the intelligence operative of the Qatar Secret Service, were showering millions of dollars to key conference participants in order to change the political out to their favor. Needless to say, that he did not work for them.
In short, the Somali federal government has collapsed today. And Kismaayo communiqué issued today is the obituary of the death of Farmaajo presidency.
He lost whatever remaining political legitimacy he might have had.
The Somali people should contemplate now how to select a new president and constitute a new federal government. There is no other way!
SOOMAALIYA HA NOOLAATO!
