|Somaliland Should Ban the Somalia Passport|
As a Somaliland citizen I am very supportive of the protective measures that the Kenyan and UAE governments have taken by banning the Somalia passports. A passport is supposed to be printed by a government, and as we all know Somalia has no government, Somalia is a failed state, therefore the passport of Somalia means nothing. It is simply a piece of paper that anyone can buy on the streets of Mogadishu for ten dollars. In fact one could buy two hundred passports if one wished. Kenya and the United Arab Emirates have realized this fact and rightfully banned the passport of Somalia. Does this mean that they hate people from Somalia? No it does not. It only means that there is no government in Somalia which prints passports, hence anyone claiming to have a passport from Somalia in reality has nothing but a worthless document.
The Somaliland government should follow in the footsteps of Kenya and UAE on this issue and ban the passport of Somalia. Nobody should be allowed to enter Somaliland using a passport from Somalia. Instead Somaliland should open an embassy in Mogadishu where special visas could be issued for Somalia citizens wishing to travel to Somaliland.
This Somaliland embassy in Mogadishu could screen the people on its premises in Mogadishu before allowing entrance to Somaliland.
Somaliland must take strong measures to protect itself from the violence and
terrorism that has taken root in the neighboring country of Somalia. Somalia
is the center of terrorism in Africa. There are over 20 known terrorists
operating in Somalia. These terrorists are terrorizing the innocent masses
of Somalia by occupying their farms, raping their women, poisoning the
coastline of Somalia, printing fake money, burning villages and many more
cruel terrorist acts. One of the most well known terrorists operating on the
soil of Somalia is Abdullahi Yusuf of the Majerteenia region. This
particular terrorist was behind an assassination attempt against
Somaliland's president. He has also allowed the dumping of nuclear material
waste off the coastline of Somalia.
