Clan federalism: Poison injected in the Somali mind
Mohamud M Uluso
by Mohamud M Uluso Sunday, January 12, 2014 The mounting evidence of the disastrous consequences of clan based federalism (secession)- a degenerative disease- did not convince the United Nations Mission for Somalia (UNSOM) and the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) not to continue to spread the disease. The International Crisis Group (ICG) report of December 19, 2013 on Puntland, the UN Secretary General report of December 2, 2013 on Somalia, the multilayered Jubbaland State conflicts, the grievances stoked within Digil and Mirifle (DM) community, the outbreak of armed conflicts in connection with State formation in Hiiraan, the escalation of clan self awareness, the pigeonholing of the federal government as a “Mogadishu based government” provide latest evidence.
