Well Done Mohamed
The usual drums that we hear from the quarters of the Kulmiye party used to beat like this:
-Zeila and Lawyado are leased to Ismael Gheeleh.
-Berbera part is sold out to Djibouti.
-The bibes to the oil installations are exported for scrap metal.
-Las-Anod and Sool are ceded to Abdillahi Yusuf with the blessings of Mr. Rayaale.
-Mr. Rayaale killed 500 people in Berbera.
-A girl from Majeertinia was raped by the C.I.D
-Prisons are full of political detainees.
-Portions of Hargeysa are given to Borama.
-Rayaale takes orders from Ismael Gheele.
-Relations with Ethiopia are bad because SNM leaders are not in power.
-Elections will not happen because the government does not want them.
-This Government is going to Imbigatti.
-Impeachment is our only salvation.
-Berbera port is deliberately being paralyzed.
-Somaliland is a human rights sad story.
-The Government, the Guurti, the Commission, the Supreme Court, Abdiqadir Jirdeh, everybody is there to conspire against Somaliland.
-Rayaale agreed that Britain deport to Somaliland all the refugees.
-Britain is going to build jails for its undesirables in Somaliland, and the Government approved.
-The foreign Minister has resigned.
-Our livestock will be exported from Djibouti .
I can not possibly finish here the record level of anecdotal imaginations of the Kulmiye leadership and rank and file. The literary richness of their fantasies are so amusing, so entertaining and so humorous that it became the feeding frenzy of at least two popular radio stations and several blogs and websites. I can honestly say one thing for them... With Kulmiye, it is never boring.
The story is different when one (like me) is concerned that parties are supposed to play more than a comedians role. Yet again if they were honest about their allegations, which every one of them became untrue, then how can we help? Now it is obvious someone lives in the comfortable area of paranoia and hallucinations. God forbid that!!
Well for the first time I have to congratulate the Kulmiye party for a pertinent, timely, polished and educated criticism of the National Budget. Congratulations Mohamed Haji Mohamud Omerhashi. I knew my friend Mohamed will always deliver, if he is given the chance.
If the Kulmiye party keeps faith with the people, and criticizes the Government on its undeniable record, as Mohamed Omerhashi has done. If it does not base its rebuttals on fabrications and lies. and would follow on the foot of a leadership that tells the truth, and makes educated comments like that of Mohamed Omerhashi. If it sheds the image of war-mongering demagogies, and brings about image of rationality like that of Mohamed Omerhashi, then they have got every chance of earning the trust of the populace. Trust earned not by misleading, but by leading. Trust well deserved, not George Bush type of trust of scaring the people out of their pants, but the sort of trust Bill Clinton had. A trust of creating hope. I believe in the vitality of the opposition parties and their strength. After all that is the first ingredient of a Democratic society. Opposition parties are our Governments in the waiting. They should not waste their time being the laughing stock of the common man. They should follow such examples as Mohamed Omerhashi, then they have every chance of getting elected and making the Government.. .
