The recent influx of Oroma immigrants coming to Somaliland is causing some long term cultural impact if not manage properly.
This groups of Oroma does not seem to integrate and blend well with Somaliland main stream society. They operate very secretively for whatever reasons.
Somaliland youth are easily influenced by outsiders and could fallen into trap to drugs use and illegal prostitution and human trafficking.
Because we are a young Islamic country in desperate pursuit of international co’operation therefore we cannot afford our tradition culture and religion to be swamped and influenced outsiders immigrants.
Once again responsible immigration is very important for all concerns politically socially and economically. The sooner we have this debate very rationally the better we come up with long term strategy to safe guard the future statehood of Somaliland.
Giving the fact that Somalilanders citizens are migrating from their countries by their thousands especially among the youth.
I am not here to stir’ up racial tension but we one must lookahead strategically.
