Hargeysa, Somaliland, June 10, 2006 (SL Times) – Somaliland government envoy for Southern Africa, Jawahir Mohamed Ali Sheikh Madar, discussed the issue of Somaliland with Rwandese Foreign minister Charles Murigande.

Jawahir who returned to Hargeysa on last Thursday told reporters that the purpose of her visit to Rwanda was to promote Somaliland and gain diplomatic support for its recognition.

Jawahir said she was impressed by the tremendous progress made by Rwanda in a time span of 10 years.

“It was particularly marvelous to see how they kept their country clean with no plastic bags on the streets or hanging from trees” Jawahir said.

The Somaliland diplomat praised the role played by the Rwandese in community development.

“The Rwandese army during the peacetime took the initiative to work with the people of Rwanda towards community development, with emphasis on building schools, hospitals, roads and brides. The concept originated from Rwanda’s visionary president Paul Kagame and his chief of staff General James Kabarebe,” she explained.

According to Jawahir the “government of national unity” in Rwanda has performed a miracle since 1994 genocide by uniting the nations, transuding tribal differences, for lacking the challenges of development.

She said that the Rwandese military officials agreed to her request to exchange their experience with officers from the Somaliland army in terms of participation in community development works.
