After deputy speaker confronts finance minister, he admits:
- Financial statements ( Xisaab Xir) pertaining to the money budgeted to the Federal Gov was not returned to the federal Parliament to show use of the money for its intended purpose in 2018,19 & 20. #N&N corruption
This runs counter to the claim of Farmaajo supporters that they are not corrupt. They refused to submit financial statements to the federal parliament for accountability purposes. Instead Pro-Farmajo speaker signed documents representing the parliament.#Somalia
It is surprising that #Farmaajo supporters could not even trust parliament that generally supported them to review how money was used
- Among the entities that have refused to return statements indicating how allocated money was used included the presidential palace.

1) I Don't want to dive into the issue of the #US court decision to limit (And ban to some extent), and the reaction was to attack "Patriarchy, Clan mentality, Abrahamic Religions", the far-right is celebrating, and Trumps Evangelical are extra happy. But no one can deny that
2) Fertility rates are decreasing worldwide (With the exception of the Sahel region and #Somalia (Seems they get too much Maraq Ari and BARIIS 👀),
According to World Bank and CIA World Fact book, 2.10 is the rate of population replacement, and below it means you have issues.
3) (Institut National d'Études Démographiques) share the same rate as well,

A thread on how there is an sophisticated attack on fundamental islamic principles in somali society with the aim of replacing them with western liberal values and the role western funded institutions as sahan & civil activist have in it.

How a mispronounced word re-named a country:
Marco Polo was an Italian explorer known for helping the Mongol emperor of China, Kublai Khan on expanding his realm.
He became the most important explorer in the court of Kublai Khan. Today, he is credited for being one of the most influential explorers of all time.
When Marco Polo visited the Island of Mogadishu, Somalia, he mispronounced Mogadishu as 'Madagascar'.

It looks like the US puppet regime in Mogadishu is definitely intent on recognizing Israel.

A Boeing 737-200 plane belonging to a Somali airline, Halla Airlines, was seen flying to Israel.

The plane came from Luxor, Egypt 🇪🇬

Halla Airlines adress is listed on Al-Mukaramah Road in Mogadishu, and according to its website is a Somali owned airline hallaairlines.com/about-us

🧵Today I will delve into the attempts of the #UK to colonize parts of southern #Somalia through the creation of permanent military bases

I will also cover British political dealings with “reformed” terrorists for this purpose
The UK began its presence in the resource rich south #Somalia when they arrived in World War II & began to illegally dismant the Mogadishu-Villabruzzi railway.

It had 7 stations & stretched to the Ethiopian border. The railway was for shipping agricultural produce to Mogadishu
With that being the only meaningful British impact in southern #Somalia i will move forward to present times.

In 2019, the UK established a military base in Baidoa officially named “The Baidoa Security Training Centre (BSTC)”

Matt bryden & rashid abdi are ordering hsm that he must go after N&N wich means anybody who doesn’t believe in clannism & that speaking about sovereignty & defending your country is extremism !

Foreigners are calling 4 the persecution of somalis !

#somalia #mogadishu

Obviously Hsm doesn’t have his own policy and it seems everything is being directed for him from nairobi and hsm’s campaign promises seems to include the persecution of his predecessor and his supporters !! They’re spreading fake videos and r trying to instigate clannism !

Well i am pretty sure matt bryden and rashid abdi know that hsm doesn’t have that capability of dismantling an ideology as does nobody in somalia so they’re ordering him to go after key members like somalis in kenya and sh abdi hirsi !!

Heute soll es um eine Reihe von Konflikten gehen, die brisant sind, aber im Schatten der #Ukraine weitgehend unbemerkt bleiben, darunter:
- #Biden genehmigt die Entsendung von US-Truppen nach #Somalia ;
- Kämpfe in Libyen;
- #Israel fliegt Luftangriffe auf Syrien.
Thread👇
(1/21)
US-Präsident #Biden hat die (Wieder-)Entsendung von US-Spezialtruppen nach #Somalia genehmigt.
Es wird erwartet, dass rund 450 US-Soldaten in das Land geschickt werden...offiziell, um gegen die Shabab-Terrormiliz zu kämpfen, die zuletzt wieder erstarkt sein soll.
(2/21)
Die permanente US-Präsenz in #Somalia wurde eigentlich erst vor zwei Jahren von Ex-Präsident Trump beendet mit der Begründung, es sei an der Zeit, aus den "unendlichen Kriegen" auszusteigen.
#Biden will nun wieder eine kleine, aber "anhaltende Präsenz" in dem Land aufbauen

There are massive sabotage efforts from western diplomats surrounding the somali troops trained in eritrea and HOA analysts are saying that these troops are the main reason the US immediately ordered the redeployment of troops into somalia.

There are 1000s of well trained somali soldiers in eritrea ready to be deployed into action in 🇸🇴 against al shabab but western diplomats have literally blocked any attempt of bringing them into somalia claiming it would disrupt the elections & could instigate violence.

#Somalia’s natural resources are on the verge of being pilfered because of the appointment of @HassanSMohamud, who is not finished looting the country after his first term.

I urge all #Somalis and concerned fellow citizens of the world to spread the message: #HandsOffSomalia 1/7
@coastline_explo, formerly known as Soma Oil, is a British oil exploration firm that is most commonly associated w/@HassanAKhaire.

Prior to that relationship, @HassanSMohamud’s admin signed a secret contract w/ the firm that was NOT approved by the country’s parliament. 2/7
@coastline_explo is extremely pleased to have @HassanSMohamud back in office so they can resume the implementation of the unethical and illegal contract they signed w/his govt. in 2013.

Die #USA entsenden wieder Truppen nach #Somalia. Was für manche willkommener Whataboutism für den #Ukrainekrieg liefert, ist jedoch damit nicht zu vergleichen.
Es ist ein Einsatz in Absprache mit der gewählten somalischen Regierung und anderen Ostafrikanischen Staaten.

Die US-Truppen unterstützen die (leider weiterhin schwache) Regierung beim Kampf gegen den Terrorismus (Al-Quaida-nahe Al-Shabab-Miliz) und bei der Ausbildung von Sicherheitskräften.

Was auf manchen Putin-Versteher wie amerikanischer Neo-Imperialismus wirkt, ist eigentlich das Gegenteil. Al-Shabab zerschlägt seit Jahren jede Bemühung zum Aufbau staatlicher Strukturen - mit gewaltsamen Angriffen, Selbstmordattentanten, etc.

It seems the slogan ,”farmaajo is rigging the election”, has become some sort of a free ticket/shield that allows certain individuals to actually rig the election without being held accountable !!

How/why does this actually work ??

#somalia #mogadishu #projection

Its called projection

• Projection. Subconsciously pressuring others with your own flaws, sometimes in words, in order to present yourself better or in order to feel better about yourself.

Here is a research done on it by Derek d. Rucker of NLOM pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15189587/
