May I take this opportunity to welcome Somaliland government frequent official trip to London trying to bring much needed trade and investment to Somaliland. Whilst this is a very good initiative,
My fellow Somaliland citizens, pressure has been mounting in the past three and half years against Mr Ali Adam Awale to resign. As the Somaliland representative from senior Community members here in the UK, due to poor leadership and lack of experience and
An Embassy insider, have told me that Amb Ali Adam Awale is unable to work well with his colleagues at the embassy let alone’ uniting and representing the government of Somaliland.
Thus all eyes are on president Ahmed Siilanyo is forthcoming and long waited government reshuffle especially in the department of Foreign Affair & International Co-operation.
Why is it Somaliland foreign policy and diplomacy has become too blurred and in coherent recently, What has gone wrong ???
We the Somaliland diaspora need to take more pro-active role to help our government led by president Ahmed Siilanyo, to review and reassess Sland foreign policy by setting up a task force focus_ groups that consist of experienced and qualified ex diplomats.
In order to re-energize Somaliland’s case for International recognition it’s vitally imortant that president Ahmed Siilanyo should take a swift action to replace Mr Adan Awale the current Ambaaasador in London
The appointment of Mr Adan Awale as the Somaliland representative in London has damaged the diplomatic credibility of Somaliland. He is definitely the wrong person for the post,reason being he is a weak spokesperson, has no diplomatic background and finally he polarised the Somaliland communities public opinion.
We need a functioning Somaliland Embassy in London to unite the people and raise Somaliland profile status. Someone with relevant skills, experience in the diplomatic arena. If we are genuinely serious about getting International recognition.
In conclusion I firmly believe that Somaliland diaspora should unite, and rally behind our president Ahmed Siilanyo in order to show the rest of the world that we mean business, and demand a full diplomatic recognition from the international. In order to do that Mr Siilanyo should remove Mr Adan Awale Ali and replace him with Kaysar Mohamed. Who is very qualified very talented, and well liked, and respected, among Somaliland UK diaspora.
The achievement and success of the Somaliland government is the success of our people and nation regardless of their political affiliation. At the end of the day, we all want what is the best interest for our country in terms of trade and foreign investment.
President Ahmed Siilanyo and his high profile delegation needs to hear loud, and clear that Somaliland Embassy is not open for business. In fact it’s virtually closed, because of the fact that does not have credential to be a good and effective diplomat.
We hope that the president and his close Aid and delegation must take on board the views and concerns of Somaliland diasporas not just few so-called loyal supporters, and cronies.
