A good read at how the Nayahn family is dividing and bribing their neighbors. And using cash stuffed into cheap Chinese rolling luggage to sort out contracts political allegiances. You can spot South African security contractors a mile away. lobelog.com/will-somalia-s…
When the cash was grabbed off a Royal Air charter (owned by the Nayhans) and counted in Mogadishu it was $9.8m. When it finally arrived up north in Puntland to pay for training troops... it was $9.4m. The African heat can do that. garoweonline.com/en/news/somali…

Remember folks a million US in sequential banded Benjamins weighs 20 pounds. That's one 80's style pimp briefcase case full. But always demand a Halliburton cuz you always get to keep the suitcase.
