Ethiopia`s New Strategy towards Somalia a Moral Story of Divide to Rule Policy

Somali Defense Minister after signing the dubious treaty with Ethiopia

Somali Defense Minister after signing the dubious treaty with Ethiopia

The Somali Defense Minister had signed a treaty with the Ethiopian government that indicates the Ethiopian Security agents can freely operate inside Somalia and can kill or abduct any person that is suspected of being an ONLF-Sympathizer.

By Ahmed Abdi,

SOMALIA was one of the best powerful nations of the African continent ever since it gained its full-Independence from European Colonialists and right after its independence, many African countries gained their independence with the help of Somalia.

During the Cold War Somalia and Ethiopia went a war over Ogaden territory and Somali National Army defeated the largest Army of Africa at the time, the Ethiopian National Defense Forces or (ENDF) that forced the former Ethiopian Derge Regime of Mengistu HaileMerriam to seek assistance from the Soviet Union and Cuban troops including South Yemen, but unfortunately when the warlords toppled the former Somalia dictator, Mohammed Siad Barre regime, they did not come up in an advance a plan with them to form a government and control the entire country and that led a naked foreign interference from Somalia’s big, bad neighbor of Ethiopia, which has been meddling in Somalia’s domestic affairs over the last two decades to create chaos. And Somali people that was known for pride and victory loving had been failed by their politicians who are bowing down in front of their former arch-enemy of Abyssinia’s face. Read more…

Al Shabab leader hits popular chord in call to oust Kenyans, Ethiopians

With Kenya’s unilateral decision to enter and create a new buffer state inside Somalia, Ahmed Abdi Godane’s urging this week to kick foreigners out has an audience, and even some logic. 

By Alex Dick-Godfrey

amisom2April 1, 2014 (Christian Science Monitor) — In a recent article on the Daily Maverick, Simon Allison identifies the “surprisingly perceptive” core message of Al Shabab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane’s recent propaganda audio message.

In his message, Mr. Godane urges his Somalicomrades to throw out their Kenyan and Ethiopian occupiers. Mr. Allison notes that, although unsettling, Godane is, in certain respects, correct, and is tapping into widespread sentiments.

Despite operating in Somalia under the authority of an African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) to rid the country of Al Shabab, Kenyan and Ethiopian troops are, in fact, occupying Somalia. Their goals are not altruistic, and are largely informed by their own national security and political considerations. Read more…

SOMALIA’S SULLIED SECURITY and Ethiopification of AMISOM

“We cannot have our right hand tied in our back and be asked to defend ourselves with our crippled left hand.” – Abdirahman Sheikh Issa

somalia1February 27, 2014 (Eurasia Review) — The recent al-Shabaab attack at the heart of the government’s compound, Villa Somalia, marks a turning point; both in terms of the audacity of the group’s militancy and the massive military campaign that the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and AMISOM are set to unleash.

This may cause a considerable loss to al-Shabaab, especially in terms of territories and hardware, but to count the overtly advertised March campaign as the deadly finale in which these militant extremists would be buried is a quixotic wish, to say the least. Read more…

Somalia’s Shebab launch suicide attack on presidential palace

February 21, 2014, Mogadishu (AFP) — Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab rebels launched a major suicide attack Friday against the heavily-fortified presidential palace, home to the country’s internationally-backed government, killing officials and guards before dying in a fierce gunbattle.

A huge car bomb exploded at the perimeter of the central Mogadishu complex, and a group of at least nine suicide attackers breached the Villa Somalia compound, one of the best-defended locations in the war-torn country. Shebab rebels immediately claimed responsibility.

The country’s president, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, said he was unharmed. He branded the Shebab “a marginal group on the brink of extinction” and vowed Somali and African Union forces would “eliminate” the group. Read more…

Somaliland: Ethiopian Consulate Parley’s Oromo Community in Hargeisa

Note: Oromo in the Tigre controlled country. A clear abuse of the rights of victims.

somalilandJanuary 28, 2014, Hargeisa (Somalilandsun) – The Ethiopian Consulate General office in Somaliland on Friday (24 January 2014) convened a meeting with members of Ethiopian Oromo communities residing in Somaliland’s capital city of Hargeisa and its surroundings. About a hundred representatives attended the session. The meeting was held as a preparatory session aimed at encouraging them to forward any issue they need to be discussed in an upcoming broader forum to be organized by the Consulate General office in the earliest possible time. Discussions also focused on the need to organize themselves in regional association which would be a strong integral part of the bigger Ethiopian Communities Association in Somaliland and establishing regular and broad working relationship with the Consulate General office. The Consulate General office also briefed participants on the overall development and security situation in Ethiopia where millions of people are graduating from poverty. Read more…

Al-Shabaab rebuilds forces in Somalia as African Union campaign stalls

One of a number of propaganda photographs published on Somali websites, apparently from al-Shabaab strongholds, showing uniformed men riding on motorbikes.

October 29, 2013 (The Guardian) — A Kenyan soldier clambers up to his sentry post and stares out across vast plains of bush, acacia trees and red dust. The savanna is peaceful now, but he knows that when darkness falls the enemy will return, typically a band of 15 to 20 men armed with AK-47 rifles. “Every night they are in front of us,” the soldier says. “They shoot and go. They run away.”

Along the frontline, the Kenyans have piled clusters of green sandbags to provide cover. Behind them, a military base is protected by high walls crowned with razor wire. About 1,200 troops from Kenya and Sierra Leone are garrisoned in this desolate Somali hinterland. On an average day, green, heavily armoured vehicles set off to patrol the crucial port city of Kismayo, running the gauntlet of roadside bombs, a deadly tactic imported from Afghanistan and Iraq. In punishing heat, soldiers can be seen rolling a surveillance drone across the tarmac of the Italian-built airport. Read more…

Ethiopia and Kenya help dismember Somalia

September 3, 2013 (Kismaayo) – A new deal has recognised Jubaland, a strip of land in southern Somalia and bordering on Kenya and Ethiopia, as yet another quasi-independent entity in the region.

After nine days of late night meetings and plenty of arm-twisting, the fragile government of Somalia was finally forced to accept that a further slice of its territory had slipped beyond its control. The deal, signed in Addis Ababa, recognised Jubaland as yet another quasi-independent entity. This strip of land in southern Somalia and bordering on Kenya and Ethiopia, it is the illegitimate heir of both of these countries.

Jubaland is of critical importance to the whole of southern Somalia. Trade through the port and airport of Kismaayo is a lifeline for the region. In theory Jubaland will be the ‘Interim Juba Administration’ and last for just two years, while Somalia re-forms itself into a Federation. In reality it is now outside Mogadishu’s control – just like those other fragments of Somalia, including Puntland, Galmadug and the self-declared independent state of Somaliland. Read more…

DONORS ARE FUNDING ABUSE IN ETHIOPIA

Firehiwot Guluma | August 3, 2013

Firehiwot Guluma Tezera

Firehiwot Guluma Tezera

Ethiopia is one of the world’s largest recipients of foreign development aid. It receives approximately US$3 billion in funds annually—more than a third of the country’s annual budget—from external donors. Indeed, Ethiopia is today the world’s second-largest recipient of total external assistance, after Indonesia and excluding wartime Iraq and Afghanistan.

Foreign donors insist that their support underwrites much-needed agricultural growth, food security, and other putatively non-political programs. However, the development aid flows through, and directly supports, a virtual one-party state with a deplorable human rights record. The regime practices include jailing and silencing critics and media, enacting laws to undermine human rights activity, and hobbling the political opposition.

Foreign aid-funded “capacity-building” programs to improve skills that would aid the country’s development are used by the government to indoctrinate school children in party ideology, intimidate teachers, and purge the civil service of people with independent political views. Read more…

UN: 3,000 Ugandan and Burundi Soldiers Killed in Somalia

U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson

U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson

May 12, 2013 (VOA News) –A top U.N. official says up to 3,000 African Union soldiers have been killed in Somalia over the past few years fighting the Islamist insurgency.

U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson gave the death toll at a news conference Thursday at U.N. headquarters.

Eliasson said Uganda and Burundi, which supplied most of the troops for the AU force, “have paid a tremendous price.”

A spokesman for the force, Ali Aden Hamoud, says he cannot confirm or deny the death toll.

That responsibility belongs to each one of those contingents, or troop-contributing countries,” he said.

Over the past two years, AU troops, working with Somali and Ethiopian forces, have forced militant group al-Shabab out of southern Somali towns and cities they once controlled. Read more…

Briefing: Somalia, federalism and Jubaland

The port of Kismayo is a prize warlords have fought over for the past 20 years

The port of Kismayo is a prize warlords have fought over for the past 20 years

NAIROBI, 16 April 2013 (IRIN) – Moves to bring three regions in the deep south of Somalia together into the state of Jubaland have turned into a tussle with the central government, with regional powerhouses Kenya and Ethiopia playing important roles.

After more than two decades of civil war and inter-clan conflict, Somalia is undertaking an ambitious programme of national reconciliation and development, with federalism is a pillar of its plan. The national administration, in place since 2012, is called the Somali Federal Government (SFG), and the country’s basic law is the Provisional Federal Constitution. Both embrace the principle of power-sharing between central and regional authorities. Read more…

March 21, 2013, Mogadishu (AFP) – African Union forces battling Islamist insurgents in Somalia are preparing troops to take over should Ethiopia withdraw more soldiers from the region, their commander said Thursday.

“We have in place contingent measures to ensure that areas in Bay and Bakool…remain stable and secure in the event of further Ethiopian troop withdrawals,” said Andrew Gutti, commander of African Union Mission for Somalia (AMISOM), referring to southwest Somali regions currently controlled by Ethiopia.

Ethiopian troops, the strongest military power in Somalia’s southwest ever since their November 2011 invasion, pulled out of the town of Hudur on Sunday, the capital of Bakool region.

Hours later, Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab swept into the town, their most important territorial victory for over a year. Read more…
