Open letter : To: Mr. Siilanyo, the President of Somaliland From: Somaliland Watch

22/04/2012

Subject:  How selectively some parties were chosen over others!

Once to every leader and nation comes the point in time to decide, in the contention of justice and injustice, of truth and falsehood for good or evil! Mr. President take the justice side, take the moral side, take the godly side, take the good side this time and correct the wrongs done by unthinking body of people of yours! Don’t insist on the wrong, it will lead you more wrongs and that will leadSomalilandto disaster!

This forum utterly deplores the injustice involved in the final results of the new political parties! That was not the right way to execute your first big item the country was waiting from you! Redo it to correct it, insisting on the wrong will only leads you more wrongs and that is what is happening now! How they classified which won and which did not win was unfair, deceptive and fraudulent to say it mildly! Stopping the people to practice their constitutional rights is simply unconstitutional!

The less thoughtful, more aggressive, do-it-first-and-think-later Minister of interior is a deficiency and counter productive to human decency and the fundamental rights of the citizens! He is a good student of Afwainism practicing it in its crude form! If you, Mr. Siilanyo think this kind of person and this kind of behavior is helping you, I think it is worrisome indeed!  We know that it is not helping the nation! I think the guy is part of the problem and never part of any solution, but he is part of your collection!

Denying the citizens to express their thoughts and to demonstrate that in any all peaceful ways and means is wrong! This undemocratic but dictatorial reaction on the part of your government is what you Mr. Siilanyo cried so loudly against, when you were the opposition!  why it is right now and why it was wrong then!?

This forum is calling you Mr. President to revisit the shameful, fraudulent and unfair result regarding the new parties which has been announced by your ill advised commission yesterday! What they called a pass was a blunder! In this way we did not create new blood and new parties, we did not create democracy, we created hatred and mistrust against each other and against the government! If that is not part of your agenda reverse this bias and injustice  .

How the commission did such unfair selection of the so called winners and losers is a recipe for disaster. It will further widen the distance between the people and their government! The government seems they are at war with particular clans and personalities!  Such government move will invite Mr. Maheega to mediate between theSomalilandcommunities if the government insists on its wrongs! God for bid!

What a tangled web of discordant and conflict the commission for the political parties weaved when first they allowed buses full of people to go around from one region to another region, with the same people in all these places, then declared the beneficiaries of this deceiving practice the winner parties, while on the contrary the genuine and honest parties who did not move the same people around from one point to another and to another were declared losers! It is not only an administrative malfeasance it seems that it was planed, and those who did this did not think right! What is worrisome is that the government was watching when all these were evolving! The real loser here isSomaliland!

The parties they said they failed have the true electoral masses while most of the others they said they passed don’t and that was the reason they allowed them to move the same people around! The government of Mr. Siilanyo is in the thick of this destructive exercise! God is watching. The world is watching! We are watching! History is registering this and the wrath of the people goes to the wrong doers!   In entertaining, accepting and declaring this result right and final amounts to declaration of instability and communal conflicts created by the government! This is a wrong move which in one stroke undermines the trust of the people to their government, the process of democracy and the dispensation of fairness to all.

This forum is calling Mr.Siilanyo to revisit this deceptive and destructive judgment and decisions taken by the ill advised commission of his! It is simply appalling.

What has happened here is unacceptable. It undermined the rights of all communities! It undermined democracy and the process of democracy! It undermined decency and justice for all.

If the leadership does not heed and usually they don’t, we may need Mr.Maheega!! Not between us andSomaliabut between theSomalilandcommunities and between the government and the people, God for bid!

If the government fails to revisit and change these fraudulent results, it will take us to that direction and to that man no matter how undesirable it is! Finding pleasure in this by the government or by the creators of this is idiot’s delight! The country is mourning!

 May Allah help those who help them selves.

 Chair man Somalilandwatch Ibrahim Mead
