Colonial Administration in British Somaliland to Her Majesty
Government testifies Somaliland people love for peace, freedom and
equality in a 1952 report:
“…they have ethnologically and politically claims to racial
individualism that would seem to be at least as good as our own, while
there is no reason to suppose that their love of independence and
liberty is any less than of the Americans or ours”.
would add, today we have lost 30 years of our identity, our
nationality, our history and above all the injustice suffered by
a whole generation be it great leaders, visionaries, heroes,
heroines who are no longer with us to share their stories with
us . However, what we have not
lost is our dignity, our honour and love for peace and liberty and the
right to protect our women, children and the weak.
Somaliland is an Independent and a Sovereign State (though not
recognised by the International community). We have to honour our
youth and lay the foundation for them so that they can inherit a
positive future. A future built on peace, freedom and respect for
human rights for all.
Our people must honour their
country and preserve justice for all. We are on a journey, a
journey built on justice and love for humanity. If we continue to
uphold our cultural values and beliefs, our newly democratic
principles, respecting the rule of law for
all and continue to build our nation from bottom up we will not let our nation down, nor the dreams of our great leaders, our
visionaries, our heroes, our heroines who are no longer with us. Last
not but least the prayers and inspirations of our elders must be
We have one message for the
International Community that is to grant the nation of Somaliland the
diplomatic recognition they deserve. This right is not only
about the basic fundamental human right of every citizen of Somaliland
including those living in the diaspora but also to regain our history that we
have lost over the last 30 years.
We the nation of Somaliland must start rewriting our history from
scratch so that our future generations do not lose their identity. Our
history has been systematically destroyed hence our existence as a
nation over the last 30 years. Every human and law abiding citizen of
this global community must take our plea of justice into his/his
heart. Our nation will not beg, for begging is not a human quality but
we will rather wait for justice though the more this justice is
delayed the more our people will suffer.
The International Community must
respect our basic rights to dignity, justice and above all the right
to exist as a Sovereign State. Somaliland has reclaimed her
Sovereignty in 1991 and since that time we proved to the International
community that a tiny nation like Somaliland can create miracles
in a continent that is stigmatised by lack of democracy.
Over the last decade Somaliland has done far more better than a lot of
Sovereign African countries. The International community
must give credit where credit is due.
The people of Somaliland have
hearts made of gold and never forget a friend's favour, especially
when this friend is a champion of justice for humanity. Let us not
forget that humanity is the chord of our solidarity as Intelligent
people who share the same dreams of love, peace and solidarity across
the globe. We all belong to one nation that is the human nation. The
beauty of this human nation is that we have one organ to think
from and that is the human heart. It is the heart that
feels our inspirations, ideologies, our sufferings, joy and above all
our vision for a better world for tomorrow's generation.
Peace for Mankind
wherever she/he maybe on this planet.
