Somalia, Somaliland and the United Kingdom

Ahmed M.I. Egal, a financial and business development consultant, wrote a highly critical piece on 12 July 2012 for Pambazuka News titled "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: The Somalia-Somaliland Talks and the British Co-Opted Roadmap." While I believe the commentary is excessively critical of both the United Kingdom and President Silanyo, it is particularly well written and raises some provocative questions.

  1. As a 30 year old Somali I read this and was frankly dissapointed that Amb Shinn bothered to attached any weight to this article.

    My advise to Amb Shinn and A MI Egal is the following:

    'times are a changin'

    As a young Somalilander who is very much concerned about the future of his country, I would say, that this Article is really well articulated and written. Ahmed Egal is really smart and intelligent man whose analysis is really intriguing.
