First of all, congratulations for all of you for helping Somaliland in the various ways you do uniquely through your publishing you webspaces. Every little thing helps go a long way in healing your homeland.

Secondly, I would like to ask you the following question.

What do 'Haatuf's pictorial evidence of corruption', 'Mariam Jooma. Experiences from the parliamentary elections in Somaliland', and 'Tabea Zierau. Politics and Economy in Nation-building Processes: Somaliland Republic' have in common? Probably not much. They do discuss some aspects of life in Somaliland. More importantly, they can now also be accessed online through this website http://storm.prohosting.com/mbali/docs.htm.
