    Congratulations Mr. Aideed. You have filled the post that my dear friend Yussuf Warsame Saeed vacated and it's how the human transition goes. I am one of the citizen of Hargeisa and wish you every luck you can get out of this world. You are a young man whom we feel that you have a time to achieve what you believe you can do for our city Hargeisa. Try Abdirahman to straighten the wrong pass, and avoid to differentiate the people of Hargeisa, because if you do that, you will not succeed. Let your immediate relatives and those far get their right and full. I have known our late Yussuf since late 1960s, and he was an honest and friendly person who deserved to get the chance to change Hargeisa, but there is a proverb that says "Man proposes and God, the almighty dispossess". We thought we got the man who can do something for Hargeisa, but the Almighty changed that in few months time.

    I wish you a good luck.
