Critique of Somali Federalism

Pambazuka News published a commentary on 20 February 2014 titled "Myths about Federalism in Somalia" by Mohamud M. Uluso.  A sharp critic of the federalism being pursued in Somalia, the author argues that federalism is a "foreign initiative meant to abort national reconciliation and institutionalize social fragmentation".  Whether you agree or disagree with the kind of federalism underway in Somalia today, I believe the time has passed when it can be blamed on foreigners.
