Somalia : Foreign Companies and Front Line Countries Exploiting Somalia’s Failed State

By Ahmed-Yassin Mohammed Soyan and Ahmed Abdi | October 22, 2014
Somalia's two neighboring head of states' utterance damped international community's speculations that Kenya and Ethiopia want a peaceful neighbor of Somalia at this critical time.

Somalia’s two neighboring head of states’ utterance damped international community’s speculations that Kenya and Ethiopia want a peaceful neighbor of Somalia at this critical time.

“We worked your destruction before, but we are the same ones that destroyed you that want to rebuild your country again”, Seyoum Mesfin Gebredinge, Ethiopia’s foreign Minister coaxed members of clan-leaders and delegates represented at the Eldoret/Mbagathi conference in May 2004.

Ethiopian tribes’ ancient ways threatened by UK-backed sugar project

A massive sugar plantation and up to 700,000 migrant workers will occupy almost 2,000 sq.km of Ethiopia’s Omo Valley, with the help of British aid finance. But the valley’s native inhabitants have been given no choice in the matter, and are being forced to abandon their homes, lands, cattle, and entire way of life, or go to jail.

October 22, 2014 (The Ecologist) — In the late afternoon sun, Longoko Loktoy, positions his traditionally engraved stool on parched earth and brushes the dust off his Kalashnikov while children close-by pursue small birds with bows and arrows.

Keeping a diligent eye on the movement of his goat herd he says he is unaware of large scale infrastructure projects that will soon encroach on his life and livelihood as an agro-pastoralist. “I haven’t heard of any government plan for a dam or a sugar project. All I have heard is that we will have to move.”

Longoko is a member of the Nyangatom tribe, one of twelve ethnic groups living in Ethiopia’s Lower Omo Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site celebrated for being one of the most culturally diverse regions in the world.

“I am leading two lives. I have children who take care of herds and I have children who are at school. When drought comes my family will depend on my children working in the town.” Read more…

ICC told: Cambodia land-grabbing is ‘crime against humanity’

A British lawyer has filed a complaint with the International Criminal Court, writes Kevin Ponniah, alleging that a wave of violent land-grabbing that has displaced 770,000 people has been carried out by Cambodia’s ruling elite, and that it amounts to a crime against humanity.

October 22, 2014 (The Ecologist) — A British lawyer has asked the International Criminal Court to investigate“widespread and systematic” land grabbing in Cambodia over the past 14 years as a“crime against humanity”.

The complaint filed in The Hague last week by lawyer Richard Rogers, who is officially representing 10 Cambodian victims, alleges that a “ruling elite”has perpetuated mass rights violations in pursuit of wealth and power.

According to a statement released by Global Diligence LLP – where Rogers is a partner – and the International Federation for Human Rights:

“The communication contends that senior members of the Cambodian government, its security forces, and government-connected business leaders carried out an attack on the civilian population with the twin objectives of self-enrichment and preservation of power at all costs.” Read more…

Somaliland inspired by Scotland and Catalonia independence campaigns

25_clip_image012October 21, 2014 (Somaliland press) –With its relative peace and natural resources, the breakaway state wants recognition of its independence from Somalia

Somaliland independence battle like Scotland or Catalonia, says president

The recent high-profile campaigns for Scottish and Catalonian independence have buoyed hopes that Somaliland could soon gain independence from Somalia, according to the president of the self-declared country.

Somaliland is viewed by the international community as a territory within Somalia – a nation that is struggling to emerge from more than two decades of civil war. However, the former British protectorate boasts more than 20 years of relative peace and security as well as untapped oil reserves and mineral deposits. Read more…

Draining development: illicit flows from Africa

Since 1970, Africa has lost at least $854 billion through capital flight which is not only enough to wipe out the continent’s total external debt of $250 billion but leaving around $600 billion for poverty alleviation.

By Menelaos Agaloglou

corruption-empireOctober 21, 2014 (Open Democracy) — Illicit flows are difficult to measure due to lack of reliable data. Global Financial Integrity in 2008 reported that Africa has lost between $854 billion and $1.8 trillion in the last four decades.

The flows seeking higher returns are directed towards western financial institutions and the process is being facilitated by tax havens, trade mispricing (by overpricing imports and underpinning exports on customs documents, residents can illegally transfer money abroad), fake foundations and money-laundering techniques.

Cuba’s war on Ebola

With free universal health care, Cuba has already racked up impressive medical achievements – why not take on the globe?

October 20, 2014 (Aljazeera) — Earlier this month, the Washington Post reported: “In the medical response to Ebola, Cuba is punching far above its weight.”

While the world stood accused of “dragging its feet” following the onset of the epidemic, the Post noted, the diminutive island had “emerged as a crucial provider of medical expertise in the West African nations hit by Ebola”.

One hundred and sixty five health care professionals had already been dispatched to Sierra Leone – the largest team thus far sent by a foreign nation – and nearly 300 additional doctors and nurses were being trained for deployment to Liberia and Guinea.

Cuba’s response to the Ebola crisis is in keeping with its tradition of accruing international brownie points via contributions to global health. Back in 2009, the New York Times mentioned that, over the past 50 years, Cuba had “sent more than 185,000 health professionals on medical missions to at least 103 countries”. Read more…

October 20, 2014 (Aljazeera) — The president of South Sudan and his rival rebel chief have accepted mutual responsibility for a 10-month civil war that killed thousands of people, at a meeting aimed at ending months of conflict in the central African nation.

President Salva Kiir and his former vice-president, Riek Machar, said on Monday they acknowleged “collective responsibility for the crisis in South Sudan that has taken a great toll on the lives and property of our people.”

Kiir pledged commitment to “the peaceful resolution of the crisis” in the impoverished but oil-rich nation, just three years old but riven by war.

“There is no reason for our people to suffer again after independence,” Kiir said. Read more…

Somalia : Are the U.S , UK and Front line countries paralyzing Somalia ?

By Ahmed Abdi | October 20, 2014

SomaliaSomalia was one of the best powerful nations of the African continent ever since it gained its full-Independence from English and Italian colonies and right after its full Independence many African countries including South Africa, Eritrea, and Djibouti gained their Independence due to Somalia’s sisterly support.

Unfortunately, when the warlords that toppled the last central government in 1991 had failed to come up in an advance a plan with them in order to form an exclusive government to control the entire country, the neighboring countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya and Djibouti exploited the chaos.
