In Somaliland Even A Suspected Criminal Can be Rewarded for a Cabinet Post
The demonstration against Siilanyo Government that took place in Gabiley on Friday came after the visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Gabiley. The press release he made on those arrested for the criminal case of Seemaal triggered this demonstration.
In his press release he openly said that there is no case against Abiib of the white hair. Is it not amazing that the foreign minister has taken the role of the Minster of interior, prosecutor general and judiciary which are mandated institutions that could proof the innocence of suspects…?
Another astonishing revelation made by the minister is that so far none of the criminals of both incidents in Seemaal and Dilla -Kalabaydh road is arrested. It is also shocking to know that the foreign minister was lobbying to secure a cabinet post for Abiib.
The Minister of foreign affairs is not alone in taking this position to defend the perpetrators to be brought to justice. He was preceded by a member of parliament Mr. Bashir Tukale who even accused the president. Mr. Tukale said that What Abib (White of hair) knows the president also knows.
This was a very serious allegation against the President. That means if Abib knows the people behind this crime then also president knows those people who slaughtered the innocent people Kalabayd-Borama road. If what Mr. Tukale claims is true then the president was in dilemma to choose between two bitter options
1. To fire Tani and arrest Abiib.
2. Silence Abiib and give him a cabinet post
But unfortunately it seems that the president is about to take the second option. I hope that the president and his government will take option two and continue to bring the criminals to the justice. It is also a high time for the for the house of Elders( Gurti ) to intervene and question the government why it took so long to bring the criminals in front of justice.
I also appeal to my kinsmen, all Samaroons to be alert and prepare for the worst because it seems that the rule of law is no more respected in the Banana Republic and finally close my writing few lines from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
Have patience, gentle friends, I must not read it;
It is not meet you know how Caesar loved you.
You are not wood, you are not stones, but men;
And, being men, bearing the will of Caesar,
It will inflame you, it will make you mad:
I am sure hearing Abib rewarded for the crime will make you mad.
