After the elections of 14 April, the united and democratic alliance of the people (UDUB) chose a positive approach of what was happening. We saw this is effective in creating peace and happiness for the people of Somaliland.
The leadership of UDUB realised the alternative - applying resistance, judgement antagonism and hatred - has the effect of empowering what we oppose ( KULMIYE and their leadership). We decided to do our job as a responsible party and create our part of the reality that the people of Somaliland were experiencing.
Mr. Rayale, the president of Somaliland and the leader of UDUB, consulting with his political campaigners and the elite of UDUB, understood:
If there is light (truth and wisdom) in the
soul, there will be beauty (goodness) in the person (The leader).
If there is goodness in the leader
(person), there will be harmony in the land.
If there is harmony in the country, there
will be order in the nation - Somaliland.
If there is order in the nation, there will
be peace in the country - Somaliland.
We are sure that evil (Ignorance and arrogance) is like a shadow - it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light (the truth). You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it but you cast a light (the truth) and that is what UDUB leaders did to stop KULMIYE leaders when they failed to uphold the constitution of Somaliland, let alone the morality of keeping the promises they undertook.
The campaign is over but I have one word for Mr. Ahmed M. Sillanyo and his company: "when ego is relinquished, the vision becomes clear and in seeing we find the purpose (the goodness of the people of Somaliland)."
Waste no time debating yourself, what a good man for Somaliland be. Must be one and start communication and dialogue with the president of Somaliland, this is what democracy is all about.
Never deprive the citizens of our small country of their hope, it may be all they have, Mr. Ahmed.
Every man is responsible of writing his own history book by his deeds or his words; it is not for us UDUB to judge KULMIYE or UCID. That is for the public of Somaliland to judge, but we are accountable for own actions and policies.
The president of Somaliland Mr. Daahir Rayale Kahin, backed by the people of Somaliland will run the country and do his job at his best to make Somaliland a better liveable place for us all and our children.
There is nothing like a dream to create a future for our children and our people.
We live for the future. Somaliland belongs to the energetic young men and women, do your job.
I hope the new government will come with a change in terms of accountability, credibility and a new culture of good governance - a transparent one. This new government is a UDUB government and it should fulfil its promises to the nation. No more broken promises.
Mohamed Mohamoud Adan, UDUB-Norway
