Rumors of the coming of the 50 Hawiye elders have being high in the past few days with their visit being linked to the ongoing dialogue talks between Somaliland and Somalia in Turkey and so many other issues.
Although the press were not allowed access to the visiting Hawiye elders upon their arrival at Egal International airport and also because of the heavy security presence at the time sources who managed to interview one of the elders who goes by the name of Mr. Hassan Hussein said, the elders visit to the country was not linked to politics vin anyway whatsoever but was based on three things which are as follows.
1. To congratulate the people of Somaliland for what they have achieved through the years through peace.
2. To learn from their experience and to seek wisdom from the brotherly people of Somaliland.
3. To Share our advice and thoughts with our Somaliland brothers
Mr. Hassan Hussein went on to say, “During the duration of our visit we shall meet local traditional and members of the house of elders.
The government of Somaliland has until the time of our reporting kept silent over the visit of the 50 and above Hawiye elders but we expected government officials to break the ice on the matter tomorrow.
