President Farmajo’s Non-apology apology for Barre’s atrocities falls flat

Mogadishu (SD) – The President of the Federal Republic of Somalia, Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, who closed the annual judiciary of the country, gave a non-apology apology to “Northern atrocities” committed by the former military regime of Siyad Barre.

President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has reinforced the Federal Republic of Somalia’s vision of adhering to and correcting the abuses that have led the Somali people to be divided, and proposed a pardon, to establish an inclusive justice system.

“There is a needed for the bad things that happened and forgiveness, let’s correct every black page that has entered our history. The persecution of the brothers in the Northern regions was not based on the South invading the north and targeting any clans but it was done by the existing system of government”. Said Farmajo

Also, the President said, “As the President of the Nation, I want to make that apology and extend our apologies to our northern brothers and for you to accept it with me.”

President Farmajo didn’t just stop there but he also mentioned that the repels needed to accept responsibility.

“The guys that also picked up the arms need to apologies for what they did too” concluded Farmajo.

The Somalia president’s non-apology apology seemed forced and not sincere, which will cause an adverse affect on Somalia society.
