  1. It’s irritating annoying and unacceptable to hear somali and somaliland it’s one country and one people. One tribe can’t High jack the destiny of the people in the North. Historical lies and created stories for younger generation. Stop the nonsense the nonsense

  2. Mr Shah, “good man”, but your words are fundamentally wrong and haven’t any legal status whatsoever. What type of history are you talking about now? I strongly advise you to study and read more & more old and modern history of the world. It is not our business if every tribe of Southern Somalia is entitled of its own so-called a regional government “maamul.” Shame on you and rethink. There is a Somali proverb which says: look before you leap, if you guess, you are lost (inta aanad wax fallin, marka hore ka fiirso, haddiise aad malayso waad Luntay). Thanks proff Shah (Mahadsanid walaal Shah)
