Mr Farmajo’s options for automatic extension and consequently rigging Somali elections are narrowing as he is desperately trying to frustrate the International Community and participants in the “Consultative Meeting ” in Afsiyone Xalane camp.

In the weeks that the IC and other Somali stakeholders were doing everything they could to bring FGS and FMSs leaders together, Farmajo has been taking several steps to force President Deni and Ahmed to leave the talks:

  1. Engineered and exaggerated protestors in Puntland State
  2. Staged defection of Jubland’s former Security minister Janan
  3. Facilitated Interior Minister’s meeting with Jubbaland “Elders”.
  4. Released previously recorded statement falsely claiming that talks had collapsed. These actions were deliberately engineered and meant to force presidents Ahmed and Deni to leave talks. Fortunately, both leaders understood Farmajo’s incredulous behaviour. The fact that both leaders remained in talks, despite the relentless provocations, is indicative of their realisation of how serious Somalia’s political situation is.

Puntland & Jubbaland are what stands between Somalia going back to civil war and/or a new dictatorial regime to take hold. It is, therefore, imperative that these leaders get all the necessary support they so deserve.
