  1. Well! Say it a “win-win event” to Somalia. It is known that the Kenyan government didn´t leave a stone unturned to muscle-show Somalia that it is now and only now that Kenya can benefit from whatever Claim that it can put on it´s weak neighbour, Somalia: land border, maritime border, internal political gains (Regional interference) and on and on. This is quite an equivalent somali saying “Ku qabso ku qadi mayside” – Claim What ever now in Somalia, you do not go without something”. The Somali Government, instead, has shown a steady flow of highly rated diplomatic caliber that made President Farmajo and Prime Minister Khayrre to earn a Premio of Good Governance from the International Political arena. If Kenya is now ready to scratch the back of Somalia so is Somalia ready to scratch its back ( putting diplomatic relations back in order.
