How The Somaliland will see the arrival of Revolution SON to their Capital
According to reliable Political sources, the President of Somalia Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo with or without his Ethiopian counterpart Abiy Ahmed will visit Hargeisa next week to meet with Somaliland leader Muse Bihi Abdi whom they met earlier in Ethiopia Capital Addis Ababa. The Somaliland leader asked his cabinet to pass and agree the Somalia President’s meeting and refer to both the Parliament and the Senet to also easy the goodwill visit of Farmaajo who apologized the Siyad Barre regime massacre of the Isaaq people in late 80’s. it’s believed that, the young energetic and Nobel Peace Prize winner initiated the earlier meeting in Addis Ababa and also pushed the upcoming Hargeisa meeting to occur for the benefit of Somalia, Somaliland and the region.
Although its very early to predict what the leaders will discuss in the upcoming meeting, Somali and regional Political analysts fear that, Farmaajo’s visit will be symbolic and Ethiopia and Somaliland will be the real beneficiaries as Ethiopia pushing to accelerate the implementation of Dubai Port World (DPW) deal which gives the UAE the majority of the shares at 51% while Somaliland will have 30 % and Ethiopia 19%. In addition, Berbera port will be the main Ethiopian commercial hub for their import and export port.
Somali leadership didn’t eloberate the neither the previous meeting in Addis Ababa nor the upcoming meeting in Hargeisa, however, the experts suggest the desperation of President Farmaajo who running to get reelection in 2021 and he is looking to clean his reputation as a serious figure who can lead at least Somali people even in disagreement mode. The meeting in Addis Ababa between Somalia and Somaliland leaders was unexpected and good opportunity for all the sides, though the Hargeisa leadership will get very hard to explain their people the sudden visit of revolution son to their beloved capital without proper and serious talks for the past massacres and future relations.
The Ethiopian leader Abiy Ahmed who visiting currently the UAE Capital making nice and ice breaking movements through the region since he come to the power two years ago. He ended the long border conflict between his country and Eritrea, he also mediated successfully the Sudanese revolution elements and military junta who over-throwed the former President Omar Al Bashiir as they reach power sharing deal to result mixed civil-military Government.
The Somalia-Somaliland issues will not be easy to solve as both sides harbor very radical views when it come to the succession and the unity. The suspicion of Western support especially the UK and USA for such sudden meeting in Addis Ababa and quick facilitation for Farmaajo Visit is highly possible, though the anger of Somaliland people over what Siyad Barre regime did to them still everywhere and that anger fueled by that current President is close relative with Siyad Barre.
