waana tanaa.

wixii qalad ah oo aad ku aragtaan soo sheega

waataan taariikhdii sayidka gabadh soomaliyeed sis
Dhalashadii Sayid Maxamed Cabdulle Xasan
Wax lala yaabo ma aha haddii nin wadaad ahi dadku ka dhashay ka tago ama ka guuro. oo degmo kale dhex dego; ha yaqaano ama yuu aqoone, ha ka fogaadeen, ama ha u dhowaadeen, sidaa suna waa culimada alabkeeka, meel kastna ha joogeene maxaa yeelay ninka wadaadka ahi wuxuu yahay oo dadka meeshaa uu tegey deggan la walaal yahay, oo iyaguna diinka ka baranayaan, isna xoolo iyo xurmaba ka helaayo.


Taariikhda aan la xasuusan, cidna sheegi karin ayaa Sheekh xasan nuur oo sayidka maxamed awoowgiis ahaa ka tegay Gobolka Qallaafo. oo ah dhulka wabiga shabeelle ku magacaaban, halkaas oo beeshuu ka dhashay degganayd. Waxuu u kacay Nugaal oo ahayd dal wanaagsan duunyadana hodan ka ah, si fiicanna loogu noolaan karey, culimaduna had iyo jeer u xoola doonan jireen.


Shiikh Xasan markuu Nugaal mudda joogey oo uu dadkii iyo dalkii kala bartay, xoolo fiicanna ka helay waxa gashay hawo guur, dabadeednna. waxuu guursaday gabadh reer Nugaaleed ah oo magaceeda lagu tibaaxay khadiijo jaamac(1). Shiikhu Nugaal wuxuu ku guursaday afar dumar ah oo u dhalay carruur. badan, carruurtaa tiradooda waxa lagu sheegay 12 wiil iyo 11 gabdhood.Waxaa la weriyey in shiikh cabdille oo sayid maxamed aabihiis ahaa carruurta ugu weynaa.


Shiikh cabdille xasan wuxuu ku dhashay, sida la weriyey dooxada "Casuura" oo magaalada Laascaanood dhinaca waqooyi galbeed ka xigta, una jirta hilaadda dhawr iyo sodon mayl. Wuxuu ku koray kuna barbaaray diintana ku bartey gobolka nugaaleed oo barwaaqo ahaa, dabadeedna reerkoodii wuxuu noqday dad Nugaal rasmi ahaan u deggan. Waxa la weriyey shiikh cabdille isagoo 26 jir ah inuu guursaday gabadha la yidhaahdo Timiro seed magan, kuna caan baxdey "Caro Seed" waxa la yidhi, waxay u dhashay 10 caruur ah, waxaana u weynaa Maxamed, hase ahaatee shiikh cabdille carruurtii uu dhalay waxey tiradoodu gaadhaysay sodomeeyo.


Shiikh Cabdille xasan Daraawiish dhiskeedii waa ka qayb galay, dagaallada badankoodiina waa ka tala galay, waxuuna ku dhintay xaruntii Daraawiishta "Taleex" 1913, qabrigiisuna waxa. laga dhisay qudbad caan ah

Maxamed cabdulle xasan waxuu ku dhashay dhulka loo yaqaan Ciid-Nugaaleed ma laaso oo ah Degmada Buhoodle balliga la yidhaahdo "Sacmadeeqo" oo magaalada buhoodle toddoba mayl u jirta kana xigta dhinaca waqooyi. Wuxuu dhashay guga la baxay "Gobaysane",Waxaana la sheegay inuu ahaa gu' barwaaqa ah oo dad iyo duunyo wixii dhashay ay hanaqaad noqdeen. Wuxuu dhashay odoros ahaan markay taariikhdu ahayd 1856. Daraawiish iyo dadkii wakhtigaa noolaa badankeedu waxay yidhaahdeen: sayidku maxamed saddex meelood ayuu ka la mid ahaa nabigii"scw" magaca da'da iyo jihaadka. Hase ahaatee, sheekadaasi inoo caddayn mayso guguu dhashay.wuxuu ku koray Nugaal, dadkooduna wuxuu ahaa xoolaley daaqsato ah.Guud ahaan xoolaha markaas la haystey waxa ugu badnaa geel iyo fardo, reer miyigana waxaa u taliya roobka dhaqankooduna wuxuu yahay inay gugii iyo dayrtii hadba dhinac u guuraan, mar haddaan dhulku magaalo iyo beero midna lahayn.Dabeecada ayaa qof walba waxay ku abuuraysaa inuu xoolaraac noqdo

Sidaas daraaddeed, waxaan oran karnaa:Sayid Maxamed carruurnimadiisii wuxuu ahaa xoolraac, lamana sheegin carruurta kale wuxuu kaga duwanaa ama dheeraa. Sidii dhaqanka Soomalidu u badnaa ama raaskuu Sayidku maxamed ka dhashay hiddo u lahaa, toddoba jir baa baa quraanka loogu bilaabay.Macallinkii quraanka u dhigi jirey waxa lagu naanaysi jirey "Kud quraan". maxamed tobon jirkii buu Quraanka ku dhammeeye, taasina wax lala yaabo ma aha oo ardada ayaa sidaas u badnayd. Wiilnimadiisii waxa lagu sheegi jirey fahmo badnaan iyo firfircooni. waxa hubaal ah haddii wiilku quraanka dhammeeyo in calaamooyinkii macallimadu. ka muuqato,isla markaasna cilmiga barashadiisa lagu gargaaro. Sidaas daraaddeed, ayaa Maxamed aabbihiis kutubta cilmiga ah ugu bilaabay, taasina waxay dhalisay inuu cullimada xerta ah oo cimiga raacanaysa la fariisto, markay degmada dhex marayaanna raaco oo la socdo.Hase yeeshee, gadaalkii xertii buu ku mid noqday, taasina waxay dhaxalsiisay in lagu magacaabo Aw Maxamed Shiikh cabdille. Magacaasu wuxuu siiyey ama u kordhiyey xurmo iyo xushmo gaar ah oo uu ku helay diinta xaggeeda.

Dhulka masaajid iyo madaaris midna ma lahayn, oo wuxuu ahaa miyi, waxaase jirey meela xeri deggan tahay iyo dugsiyo quraanka lagu barto iyo meela laysugu yimaado xilliyo aan go'nayn iyo meelo lagu shiro ama diinta lagu akhristo, ama lagu kala warqaato ama waxii dan ah la isku weydaarsado. waxa kaloo jirey waqtiyaal caan ah oo sharciga islaamku jideeyey in laysu yimaado sida labada iidood oo kale oo wacdi iyo waano la kala qaato.

Haddaba, waxaa hubaal ah in Aw maxamed shirkaas culimda diintu markay dadka wacdiga iyo waanada u jeedinayaan ka faa'ideysan jirey. Sheeko ku-tiri-kuteen ah waxaanu ku maqalnay in Aw maxamed soddomaadkiisii dhul badan oo dalka gudihiisa ah oo kala duwan maray isagoo cilmi doon ah hase ahaatee taasi run iyo been miday tahay lama oga, waxaase la weriyey inuu cilmiga ka bartay Shiikh la odhan jirey Shiikh Abokor shiikh Ibraahim laguna naanaysi. jirey Abokor fool-dheere, oo degmadiisa ahayd dhinaca waqooyi ee webiga shabeelle waxa la wariyey sayid maxamed baa eegay Ceelka Walwaal, kolkaasuu dhererkiisii la yaabay oo waxuu yidhi "Cilmigii Abokor-fooldheere" ayaa buuxin lahaa, meel kasta cilmiga ha ka barto, nin kastaba ha ka akhristee, waxaa hubaal ah inuu sayidk maxamed diinta islaamka iyo Af cariba aad u yiqiin, gaar ahaan qaybta loo yaqaan "Cilmiaale" oo afka carabiga furaha u ah, markaasna wuxuu la baxay Shiikh maxamed Shiikh cabdille.

Personal Statement.

 

Welcome to Merka art Gallery and thank you for dropping by.

My name is Mohamed Buwe Osman, a native of Merka, Somalia- an ancient historical town 40 miles south of Mogadishu. It is known for its beautiful white sandy beaches and stunningly colorful orange dunes which are reflected in most of my paintings.

 

Africa gave me the blessing of exposure to the inspiring world of contemporary art. While attending Medical School in Europe, the beautiful culture enriched my curiosity in Classical Art. North America widely opened its  window of endless opportunities of enjoying not only the practice of medicine but as well as Art.

 

My paintings are reflective memories of my diverse, rich and adventureous  experiences. They express deep emotionallly and psycholigically captive difficult to express in words concepts of our life which reppresent the most previous gift to human by our Creator.

 

My daily care of patients inspires me. It influences my creative skills. It teaches me everyday the true meaning of life, the gift of living and being surrounded by beautiful people, the joy of rediscovering the mysteries of the non replicable Art- creation of the Universe.

Thank you and feel free to contact me any time.

WUXUU QABTO: Somalian poet

 

·         Naufrags du Destin [Collection of Poetry, 1978]

·         Cantiques [Collection of Poetry, 1976]

·         Harmoniques [Collection of Poetry, 1976]

·         Khamsine [Collection of Poetry, 1959]

William J.F. Syad. Somalia (1930- ).

William Syad was born in French Somalia in 1930 and was educated in Saudi Arabia and at the University of Paris, Sorbonne. As a supporter of Somalian unity, Syad has spent much of his life in exile. He worked for Radio Djibouti from 1955-1960 but then fled into exile once again. When the Somalia Republic was formed, Syad became head of the department of Tourism and Culture at the Ministry of Information in Mogadishu. This was followed by a long and distinguished career in the Somali foreign service.

Syad's has published four volumes of poetry, Khamsine (1959), Cantiques (1976), Harmoniques (1976) and Naufragés du destin (1978). This body of work reflects the unique character of Syad's French Somali roots. It blends Syad's devotion to Islam with his acceptance of Western influences into into the Horn of Africa. Perhaps put best by Léopold Senghor (in Jahn, 1972), "His poems have the subtle perfume of the Song of Songs. And the tone of the poems of Tagore. They are natural flowers of a land of poetry, of a land of nard and incense: balmy orchids."

Escape, Lines 14-27

Like
a stiff-necked
flower
drooping
as dawn
crawls
out of night
Your frail
wings
left
a shudder
in the sand
of dunes on my deserted
beach

Yesterday, Lines 8-21

you have told me
my culture's past
wild thought
of my Somali
race

And like this fine sand
in the hollow
of a hand
you sift down into the past
where the mind
alone
may glean

Biography

Iman is known for being one of the first people to challenge and change prevailing notions of beauty from the beginning of her career in the 1970's. The daughter of an African diplomat, Iman was born in Somalia on July 25, 1955. She was raised speaking 5 languages, and was a co-ed at Nairobi University working toward her political science degree when well-known photographer Peter Beard spotted her walking across campus.

Her first modeling assignment was for American Vogue in 1976. Iman was an instant success in the fashion world, becoming a muse for several fashion designers including Yves St. Laurent, Versace, Calvin Klein, and Donna Karan. During her 14 years as a model, she also worked with many top photographers, including Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Annie Liebovitz.

When she introduced IMAN Cosmetics and Skincare Collection as an exclusive line for women of color in 1994, she was already considered an authority for this growing market. "I have a real sense of who the true woman of color is," Iman explains. "She is not merely one ethnic group...she's African-American, Hispanic, Asian and Native American".

In 2000, Iman successfully launched her second beauty company, I-IMAN Makeup, which addresses the needs of all women regardless of skintone. Known for an urban, sophisticated concept, I-IMAN Makeup has become popular in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.

A U.S. citizen residing in New York, Iman is married to musician/actor David Bowie, and together they have a daughter, Alexandria Zahra, who was born August 2000. Her daughter from a previous marriage, Zulekha, is currently a college student in the United States.

In addition to running two successful beauty companies, Iman is actively involved in several charities, including Mother's Voices, Action Against Hunger, The Children's Defense Fund, and The All Children Foundation. She recently completed her first book, I AM IMAN (Universe, 2001), an autobiographical sketchbook of her working life that provokes questions about "the unserious business of fashion and beauty, and it's serious effect on identity".

Personal Background

  • Born July 25, 1955 in Mogadishu, Somalia
  • Father was Somalia Ambassador to Saudi Arabia; mother was nurse. Siblings: two brothers and two sisters.
  • Attended high school in Egypt. Majored in political science at Nairobi University. Speaks five languages.
  • Discovered in 1975 by photographer Peter Beard while she was a student at Nairobi University.
  • Married musician and actor David Bowie in Florence, Italy in 1992.
  • Has one daughter, Zulekha from first marriage.


Return to Somalia

Like the rest of us, Iman spent the last several months reading with increasing horror about the famine and violence in Somalia. But for her, the pain hit closer to home, Iman was born and went to school in Somalia's capital city, Mogadishu, now torn in half by warring clans. She and her family - her diplomat father, doctor mother, two brothers, and two sisters - went to exile in Tanzania in 1972, and Iman launched a modeling career that landed her on every major designer's runway and in the pages of Vogue more than forty times. Now, twenty years after leaving her country, she feels compelled to give something back.

"I want to put a face on the pain," she says. "Somalia is not a nation of beggars and looters. I want people to know what it used to be." In August, Iman approached the BBC about making a half-hour documentary on her homeland. Six weeks later, she flew to London to pick up her camera crew. (The documentary aired in Britain in October; Iman hopes to bring it to American viewers before the end of the year.) This is the diary of her odyssey.

September 24

After an intense six weeks of planning, I land in London on the first leg of my journey to Somalia. I am jet lagged and feel jittery, lost, and alone, pessimistic about what lies ahead. At noon I meet with the British Red Cross. They explain how important it is for me to stay neutral in the conflict. I cannot take any money with me, so I won't be able to give money to any family members. I will have to pay courtesy calls on the two warlords in the capital city to prove my neutrality and impartiality. Seven people from the Red Cross/Red Crescent have been killed in Somalia, caught in crossfire. But the problem with me is that my clan was at one time the ruling clan, and my family left the country; the Red Cross is worried about my safety.

Later I drive to the BBC office to meet with reporter Robin Denselow and the film crew and to discuss final details of the documentary. We will be flying to the coast of Kenya to visit a refugee camp just outside of Mombasa, then into Somalia itself to visit more camps and several towns connected with my family's history.

In the next two days, I visit the doctor for my last hepatitis shot and go shopping for a sleeping bag, mosquito spray, water-purifying pills, protein drinks, assorted dried fruits and nuts, and water jugs. I also revise my will and at my husband's insistence, buy a bulletproof vest.

September 28

I am shocked by the proximity of the Utenge Refugee Camp to our resort beach hotel in Mombasa - it's barely a ten-minute drive away. Some people have rated Utenge a "five star" camp. After spending an entire day here, I understand why. This is where the elite of Somalia have ended up. The thirty-five thousand people who live here (in a camp built for twelve thousand) are mostly professionals - doctors, nurses, professors, teachers, entertainers, and poets - who had enough money to escaped by boat to Kenya. There are little shops inside the camp's gates, a Koranic school, and an eight-room primary school, where children are taught English, French, and Swahili. But the most uplifting and joyous part of the camp is the cultural center, where professional performers sing, dance, recite poetry, and act in traditional plays.

There is a little creek that separates the refugee camp from the resort beach. It's a surrealistic vision to see these tents and palm huts barely separated from a body of tanning tourists. Life-and the tourist economy in Mombasa - goes on.

September 29

As we board a Belgian Hercules cargo plane for Baidoa, in the heart of southern Somalia's famine belt, memories rush through me. I think of my summer visits to my uncle, who was a teacher there - long, lazy summers. This soon changes. I see the town through the window of the plane and feel every kind of fear.

Driving through Baidoa's streets is a nightmare. All the buildings are bombarded and bullet ridden. Women wrapped in black shawls or sack cloths and naked children walk toward the feeding centers in near catatonia. A bony woman is lying on her side, holding a stone to her temple. Armed teenagers are visible everywhere. We drive through the gates of the International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) compound for our briefing, have tea for breakfast, and arrange our security for the day. One cannot travel without a "technical team," as these armed men for hire are called.

Our first stop is a center for the severely malnourished, run by the Irish group Concern. We walk through a little green door into a dark room where children and women lie on mat-covered floors. I cannot take one step; I feel paralyzed by the horror. A nurse is helping a team of Somali women administer IV needles that deliver liquid nourishment to the skeletal bodies. I sit down next to a woman and her huddled child and ask, in Somali, where she was born, if she lived in Baidoa before the problems started. She starts saving her arms and embracing me. She and her three children walked from a town eighty kilometers away; now she has only one child left. I fall to pieces, sobbing with her, while her child sits between us in an unnatural stillness.

Later in the afternoon we stop by the orphanage in Baidoa. They take care of 520 children here, twenty-one of them severely disabled, ranging from two to thirteen years of age. The orphanage was created by a Somali grandmother after a two-year-old girl walked into her house, without any family in sight. I meet a quiet girl who lost both her parents and came to the orphanage three months ago with her four siblings. She is the only survivor now. She is speechless with shock.

During my visit, children recite the Koran in the courtyard, some laugh and play, and one little boy dies. Everything goes on as normal; as I leave, people are putting a shroud over his body and praying. I later wonder whether this really can have happened. But the orphanage's cemetery is right next door. They have buried 120 children in the past four months.

Before I left New York, I was told that my uncle was still living in Baidoa. I ask all the Somali nurses if they know of him, and finally meet a young woman who knows the location of his house. Late in the afternoon, I enter his house, unannounced. He hears my voice and rushes to hug me. Uncle, aunts, and cousins - we all tearfully kiss each other. They tell me not to worry about them, although I suspect that thy cannot talk freely in the presence of our armed guards. It has been twenty-five years since I saw them, but my visit is cut short. I must return to the ICRC camp, for the streets are not safe after 5:00 P.M..

YASMIN WARSAME
Birth country: Somalia
While most models embark on their career in their teens, Yasmin Warsame was in her early 20s – and five months’ pregnant with her son Hamzah – when she accepted her first job, a catalogue shoot in her adopted home of Toronto.

Her look, however, was considered too "haute couture" for the local scene, making work scarce. So, in the summer of 2002, Yasmin headed to Paris where, she says, she had only one thing on her mind: "Walking down the runway… and not falling." Since then, the 6ft beauty has become the "muse" of Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz and been dubbed the new Iman by Michael Kors.

But the most memorable moment of her career was of a more personal nature. "It was when I sent my mum (in Somalia) a large amount of money," she says. "I spoke to her and she was almost in tears. That was the moment that made modelling so worth it."

WARIS DIRIE
Birth country: Somalia
One of 12 children born to desert nomads, Waris escaped being sold into marriage for five camels at the age of 13 by running away to London, where she worked as her uncle's maid. There she taught herself to read and write, and five years later got her big break when a photographer spotted her working in a fast food restaurant. Soon she was gracing catwalks and magazine covers, and even appeared in the 1987 Bond film The Living Daylights.

A decade on, Waris, whose name means "desert flower" in her native tongue, left modelling to campaign for the UN against female circumcision, having been a victim of the process herself aged five. She recorded her extraordinary journey in a best-selling autobiography, Desert Flower, along with its sequel Desert Dawn, and hasn't looked back since leaving the profession. "I can enjoy anywhere, and I can leave it," she says. "Life is about moving on."

UNFPA GOODWILL AMBASSADOR, WARIS DIRIE, WINS AWARD


Waris Dirie at the Childhelp USA's Award Ceremony in Scottsdale, Arizona, U.S.A.

17 April 2001

UNITED NATIONS, NEW YORK – The United Nations Population Fund’s Goodwill Ambassador for the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation, Waris Dirie, has been honoured by a United States charity, Childhelp USA, for her efforts to curb the practice. Childhelp, which is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse, granted her its Guardian Angel Award on 12 April at a ceremony in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Goodwill Ambassador was recognized for her incredible bravery and strength, according to a Childhelp statement read by an Arizona television news anchorwoman, Robin Sewell. “It’s hard to imagine the physical pain that Waris Dirie endured as a child and the emotional pain she has had to cope with as an adult. … Waris has truly turned her 'pain' into a 'platform'. Her efforts are bringing hope to the victims of FGM.”

Somali-born Ms. Dirie works with the UNFPA to help eliminate FGM, which is performed on about two million women and girls annually. She speaks to policy makers, donors and the public worldwide about FGM and the need to support programmes to prevent and end it. Her book, Desert Flower, which narrates her experience with the practice, has been a best-seller in Europe and she has been featured on the cover of popular magazines such as Reader’s Digest and Marie Claire.

Activist and fashion supermodel Waris Dirie (Somalia) was appointed UNFPA Special Ambassador for the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on 18 September 1997. As Special Ambassador, Ms. Dirie has toured African countries speaking out against the practice and lending support to UNFPA and national programmes that seek to eradicate FGM. As a young girl in Somalia she survived the traditional form of FGM that kills hundreds of women every year. After achieving international success as a fashion model, she decided to tell the public of her ordeal and to dedicate her life to ending the practice and improving the status of women. Ms. Dirie’s work is part of an international advocacy campaign to stimulate awareness of and support for human rights, gender equality and reproductive choice, especially for women in developing countries.

Waris: From Somalia to modeling

December 6, 1995
Web posted at: 7:30 p.m. EST

From Correspondent Janine Sharell

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Her name is Waris, a self-described nomad. Her story is one of self-reliance, self-confidence and sheer determination.

Waris

She is a successful model from Somalia, where she was crudely circumcised at age 7. She fled across the Somalian desert at 13 to escape a marriage arranged by her father to a 60-year-old man. It was a life she said she was not ready for: "It was just horrendous to me. I knew there was more to life than just getting married and having 15 kids." (170K AIFF sound or 170K WAV sound)

But she doesn't condemn the culture. "It's not a bad thing," she said. "It's tradition. It's our culture. There's nothing wrong with it, but I was just too young."

Waris -- her name means "desert flower" -- made it from the sands of Somalia to the catwalks of New York after her striking looks caught the eyes of prominent British photographers and modeling agencies. She has bloomed into a top international model with lucrative contracts with Revlon, Oil of Olay, and Levi's.

For Waris, her first paycheck was unbelievable. "It was, like, ,000! I was like, 'Wow! Is it all mine? Are you sure? You sure I don't have to sleep with an old man?'" she said.

Waris' New York agent believes Waris has what it takes to become tremendously successful in the fashion industry. "They all have to be beautiful," explained Irene Marie. "But what they need is a very special personality, and Waris certainly has it."

Waris has followed in the footsteps of the famous Somali model Iman. In fact, the two are cousins.

But although modeling may be in her blood, it may not be in her heart. "I don't like money and fame, and, honestly, I don't like where I am today," she said. "... Money makes the world go around, so I'm going to use my power in any way I can to help my family."

After 17 years away, Waris returned to Somalia and was reunited with her family. Seeing the plight of her people, she vowed to make a difference. "I want to save my money to open a school for African children," she said. "... I taught myself everything six years ago, and you don't understand hard that was."

The Secessionist Campaign in London: An Eye-Witness Somali Report - by Professor Samatar

  

Abdi Ismail Samatar

Professor of Geography

University of Minnesota

 

Introduction

Professor Samatar.

The debate pertaining to the integrity of the Somali nation has entered a critical phase as the northern secessionists push their agenda to convince the international community, particularly the British Government, about the merits of their claim. There has been a great deal of misinformation about the recent trip of Hargeisa political leaders to the United Kingdom . The rumor mill and related sources have widely misrepresented what has transpired during their visit in London . I was passing through London during the group's visit and attended the meeting, March 17, 2004 , where the secessionist leaders presented their case to a few members of the British Parliament. It is vital to report to the public of exactly what occurred at that meeting and to briefly tease out its essence for our national integrity. This essay provides an alternative, and I dare say more accurate, recount of events.

 

The Caucus

 

A brief recap of the assembly is in order. First, the meeting took place in the Parliamentary office-building and not in Parliament's chamber as others have claimed. Second, Mr. Tony Worthington MP, of Clydebank & Milngavie, organized and convened the council, and some members of Parliament's All Party Group on International Development attended. Third, nearly three-fourth of those who attended were supporters of the Hargeisa authority, peppered with a few British consultants. Finally, the timing coincided with UK government budget day, an event that monopolized media and national attention and, consequently, obscured the aforementioned meeting.

 

Mr. Worthington initiated the discussion by recounting his two visits to Southern and Northern Somalia since 1991. Although he cited Baidoa as the most tragic place in recent Somali history, his attention and sympathy focused on Somalia's former military regime's destruction of Hargeisa in 1988. His opening statement revealed an uninformed and biased reading of Somali political history. For example, he bluntly remarked "you have regretted your unification with Somalia since the beginning." These words set the tone for the rest of the discussion.

 

The head of the Hargeisa authority, Mr. Dahir Riyale Kahin, read a prepared statement that lasted for almost thirty minutes. He reiterated a fiction that many advocates of the secession agenda have come to believe, one which celebrates British colonialism and depicts northern Somalis as people who did not struggle for independence. In this interpretation, Sh. Bashir's, Abdillahi Suldaan Tima Cade's, and Barkhad Cas' efforts, Sayyid Mohamed Abdulla Hassan's movement and other less visible northern heroes of Somali nationalism are erased from the annals of modern Somali history. Mr. Riyalle and his cohorts identified two former British Prime Ministers, Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher, as their heroes. Labor Prime Ministers, including Tony Blair, did not fit into this political map. Once Mr. Riyale finished reading the speech, Mr. Worthington took questions from the floor. As a chairman he indicated to those present that non-Somalilanders would have the first opportunity to ask questions, assuming that all black people present in the meeting were "Somalilanders."

 

During this period, some of the northerners with Mr. Riyale further embellished the same contrived history. They made several incongruous statements. First, the audience were told that northern Somalis were British Orphans and that the British Queen was their mother. None of the speakers appreciated the irony that the Queen was alive despite their claim to orphanhood. Second, the advocates of sovereignty accused the British of implanting the idea of united Somalia in northern minds after the Second World War. Further, they claimed that the British forced northerners to unite with Southern Somalia , a place these speakers referred to as "another African country." Third, speakers alleged that the Somali Youth League (SYL) lobbied to restore Italian power over southern Somalia and campaigned against the unification of all Somalilands under the British rule when the Four Powers Commission considered the matter in 1948. These assertions are, however, contradicted by historical facts. British and United Nations archives contain clear evidence that demonstrates SYL's relentless opposition to Italian colonialism, and old SYL stalwarts are alive in Somalia , Belgium , and the United States to testify on the matter. Fourth, this reinvention and falsification of history did not stop here. For they proclaimed that the North unwillingly joined a South trained in the art of deception by the Italians. They stressed that Southerners used trickery inherited from Italian colonialism to hoodwink Northerners into accepting secondary status!

 

Such clumsy distortions of the record were designed to gain the sympathy of British MPs and then prod the British Government to recognize a sovereign state in northern Somalia in contradiction to the set policy of the African Union and the United Nations. The Hargeisa contingent flattered the British and members of the House of Commons, who were present, as their long lost brothers, imploring them to revive their “old friendship.” In fact, one of the speakers declared that " Great Britain will always be our best friend." Finally, another delegate indicated that the Hargeisa authority would negotiate with the South without pre-conditions but only after the North becomes a sovereign state.

 

The chair gave me an opportunity to ask my question after nearly all others had spoken. I introduced myself as required by the Chair. As I rose, I stated that I was a native of Gabileh, a town fifty Km west of Hargeisa. I added that I did not define myself as a Somalilander but as a Somali citizen. Not willing to wait for me to ask my question, the advocates of the secessionist agenda jumped to their feet to thwart me from speaking. It was a chaotic scene. They hurled insults at me and one of them even threatened me with physical violence. The Chair, Mr Worthington, was embarrassed and had to forcefully intervene. He ordered the crowd to let me speak. I only had a brief statement to make. I told the Chair that I had prepared a briefing for the Committee pertaining to all of Somalia which I had sent to their offices earlier. I urged the Chairman and the rest of the All Party Group present to consider the contents of the briefing. Subsequently, I asked the Chairman if he would agree that what people of Somalia needed the most is peace and development before there can be serious and legitimate discussions of future political dispensation(s). I encouraged him and his colleagues to urge the UK Government to give increased development aid to all the people of Somalia , particularly the northern regions that are most peaceful. I then thanked him for giving me the opportunity to speak.

 

Only one other MP, the Honorable Piara S. Khabra of Ealing and Southhall briefly spoke and urged Somalis in the UK to take responsibility for their children in Britain . He expressed his serious concern about the many Somali children who were unable to appropriately adjust to Britain , and underscored the responsibility of parents.

 

Before the question time had lapsed, a fistfight broke out between two members of the secessionist group, one from the opposition Kulmiye Party and another from governing Udub. The police had to be called in to restore order before the meeting adjourned.

 

Final thoughts

 

The deliberation underscored two key issues for anyone who cares about Somali interest. First, the falsification of colonial and post-colonial Somali history is most poisonous. These distortions signal the incredible length the Hargeisa authorities and their supporters are willing to go to impose their political agenda on the country. Here, one wonders why the group is reluctant to honestly present their case and try to convince Somalis and others through the logic of their argument and the clarity of their evidence. By vilifying and abnegating our true history, they humiliate all of us including the very Northerners who gave up so much to help gain our independence as well as those who dislodged the brutal Siyaad Barre military regime. Further, the erroneous accusation that SYL actively sought a re-imposition of Italian rule on Southern Somalia and fought against the unification of all Somalis under the British is tragic. This deliberate falsification of our past seems like a continuation of the earlier SNM strategy that deceived the Somali public about its intention to break up the country into two parts. The few British MPs who witnessed this affair, mainly belonged to the Labor Party, know British colonial history better than our brothers and sisters. They must have been flabbergasted to hear this Uncle Tomish rendition.

 

Second, the attempt by senior members of the Hargeisa authority and supporters to silence me in that meeting bodes ill for the future of the region and the entire country. They claim to be democrats but could not wait to suppress, through intimidation and violence, opposing opinions, even in the shadow of the British Parliament. Such intolerance to hear dissent is symptomatic of what transpired during the so-called declaration of independence in 1991 and the recent referendum. Those who had the gun did not allow any debate in either of these formative occasions. One wonders, then, why they are so afraid to engage in open debate. After all, the opportunity for a citizen to freely express her/his perspective was the fundamental reason why Somalis hated and resisted the old regime. This is the essence of democracy and the terrain of engagement for all Somalis.
