Ethiopian troops have killed 11 civilians and one member of parliament during elections in #Baidoa. They have sent a plane full of soldiers to try and intervene in #Kismayo during elections. How is this country a contributing member of a 'peace-keeping' mission in #Somalia?!!!!
#AMISOM is discredited and now directly and openly involved in Somalia politics and internal affairs!! Exit plan needed and urgently. They went from a 'peace-keeping' mission to a threat to stability of Somalia!!!

#Somalia under Farmaajo is moving closer and closer to loose confederation at best, #Yugoslavia-style split of the nation at worst!! It seems N&N are totally opposed to the very idea of federalism and prefer a return to the dictatorship days! Nostalgia for doomed days is madness!
30 years of brutal civil war, recurring droughts/famine, serious corruption, high levels of unemployment, and short sighted/very selfish politicians - with no solution in sight is pushing some of us to consider the unimaginable: to save Somalis #Somalia might have to be split-up!
Last December I worked on a 'resilience' research in #Kismayo, #Baidoa, and #Beledweyn. My team and I interviewed nearly 500 people in these cities on how they cope with displacement, conflict, climate change. The answers were heartbreaking! Their living conditions traumatizing!!

1/ #AMISOM gets its first #Ethiopian🇪🇹 Force Commander. The last time Ethiopia offered to play this role in 2016, the proposed deal fell through...
2/ In early 2016, #Ethiopia🇪🇹 proposed taking the #AMISOM FC position if it could deploy an additional 1,000 troops into AMISOM & deploy a contingent to #Mogadishu. This was rejected in favor of a #Djibouti🇩🇯 FC. See p.201 amazon.com/Fighting-Peace…
3/ It's an interesting time for an #Ethiopian🇪🇹 #AMISOM FC given recent events around #Baidoa w the detention of #Robow involving #ENDF troops; the #AlShabaab ambush of ENDF convoys; & ongoing unilateral ENDF helicopter operations.
