The talks have collapsed, despite great efforts, resources and time spent for their success. The main reason for the failure was a predetermined plan to forfeit any positive outcome on the part of FGS leaders, who are now resisting calls to either resign or accept the obvious constitutional sanction that their four-year mandate had ended two months ago. It is unprecedented constitutional crisis hard to ignore by anyone trying to help Somalia survive this flagrant abuse of power and disregard for the rule of law. It is no longer how and why the talks have collapsed, it is about allowing attempt by illegitimate and outlaw President to dictate the agenda of an existential meeting on the way forward for Somalia in serious trouble now.
To those participants in the talks on the other side, who claim that the talks didn’t collapse yet, they must accept the fact that it takes a group of persons to play the Somali folklore dance called “WALASAQO”. Do they have partners to play with?
Finally, If Mohamed Abdullahi (Farmajo) had been able to install by force three Heads of Federal Member States before the eyes of Somalis and the world community at large, why can’t he get away with squattering in Villa Somalia without any legal consequences?
