  1. Let’s all hope and pray that the old country will somehow be able to find peace with itself very soon. Let’s hope and pray that the youth that has been connived to take to the bushes will finally wake up to those who hoodwinked him/her and go back to his loved ones. That is the best wishes we can extend to those noble people who produced us all. They have seen it all. They were mowed down like overgrown lawn, chased out of their domiciles where they have lived for decades and even centuries. They have been denied their dignity by thugs and bigots. When they think that it is all over for them, then suddenly sky start falling on top of them with bloodshed they have never seen before. What else they have not been subjected to? May The Good Lord Bring Peace and Stability for them! If that starts happening soon, they are assured that a better world is awaiting them. Qualified experts both at IMF and The World Bank are projecting an encouraging economic growth for the old country between 6.3 and 7.00. That is great news. With sustained peace and stability we can all say that the country that we still hold very dear to our heart, it has finally got its mojo working. Insha’Allah!!!

    • Growing by 7% for a county which burns down 3 years of its budget (44 Billing Dollar) and counting is not good enough. First the war need to be halted to stop the bleeding of the economy then we can talk about real growth. UN is projecting 4.5%. Some learned individuals don’t believe IMF and World Bank numbers as it is politically motivated rather than based on hard fact. I also wish things change but with Abiye in power I don’t think there will be positive change.

  2. Folks, hold on my phone is ringing.
    Hello, Ittu speaking.
    Hey Ittu! Its me. Do you know who I am?
    Yes, its you Af-Mishaar. I recognize the voice. Whatta be like dude?
    What it is, man. Very busy as usual. It tell this G7 group has no clue about HOA region.
    Any thing news from Jijgige? Any thing what the Somali Region President Mustafa has been doing lately?
    Ittu, how many times did I tell not to mention that guy’s name?
    Why? He is doing fine for what his people had hired him to do. You can hear a pin drop in his region.
    I don’t wanna hear his name. I hate him because he has Oromo and Amhara friends.
    What is wrong with that? They are citizens of the same country.
    No, Somalis are not Ethiopians. I hate Oromos, Amharas and everything with and about Ethiopia with a passion.
    That is not nice, Af-Mishaar. I think you have a serious thinly veiled bigotry about those two noble people and Ethiopia. You yourself were born in Jijgige which is in Ethiopia. Weren’t you?
    No, I was not born in Ethiopia. Jijgige is a Somali property. My birth certificate was issued by the British official who was the governor of Jigjige.
    Wo, wo, hold it mister. Are you saying you were born when Jigjige was under British administration?
    Yes, that is what I’m saying. My parents wedding certificate was issued by the British governor.
    Hold it mister. That means you were born in or before 1948 because that was the year the British returned the entire Ogaden region to the rightful owner, Ethiopia. Btw, do you still have those British government issued wedding and birth certificates, Af-Mishaar?
    No I don’t have them and lost after I left. Ittu, stop mentioning the name Ethiopia. I told you I hate that country with a passion. But that was not the reason I called you.
    Okay, go ahead and tell me.
    Ittu, I might not have told you this but some of the world leaders are my personal friends.
    That is very good.
    Just like this morning, Trudea called me asking for some pointers about the Horn of Africa.
    Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister?
    Yes, Justin Trudeau. We talked on the phone for more than 3 hours. He needed directions on how to deal with the situation in the Horn of Africa. I emailed the 16-pages document I wrote for my meeting with a big man from US Department of State two years ago.
    What is the name of that big man from the State Department?
    I forgot his name. In any case, PM Trudeau had read thru my document and called me back to express his sincere appreciation.
    Wow! Are you thinking about moving to Canada?
    No I will stay where I am now because I don’t wanna create a traffic logjam by moving there. That is what happening here now where I live. Whenever I leave home that creates a traffic jam because people want to catch just a glimpse of me..
    Wow, you don’t have any privacy, Af-Mishaar.
    No I don’t. Guess who called me right after I finished talking to PM Trudeau?
    Who?
    Rishi Sunak.
    The PM of Britain?
    Yes. He needed some pointers on The Horn of Africa and I sent him the same document. Btw, Sunak and I go back to his days at Stanford. He sees me as his mentor. Angela Merkel used to call me at least one a month to get my opinion about The Horn of Africa.
    Wow, you make a lot of people envy of you. Btw, if you were born before 1948 that means you were almost a middle age person when you came to this country. But you mentioned on several occasions that you were barely a teenager. Things are not adding up for you Af-Mishaar.
    Whatever, Ittu. Last call for you. Have you and your Itu clan accepted the new designation as Somali Abo?
    Listen Smart Aleck Af-Mishaar. I swear to you that you wouldn’t say that to my face and walk away in one piece.
