Both were seen touring Somaliland together months ago, in what was seen as a politically motivated discussions with the public.

That tour was cut short by the Bihi government, when the topics of discussions were deemed taboo.

  1. Thanks to president Muse Bih´s announcement to pave the way out for opening a system of competing multi parties in the Land. i think it is the right direction and the right time to lit a light in the tunnel for an inclusive Somaliland, specially a Party that hails from east and west which, I hope, could be a uniting factor to both “Beesha Dhexe and Beelaha Darafyada” and which, I believe, can stir a nod of approval from the International Community.
