    Why don't daroods have something nice to see? I look at the comments and 99% of those written by daroods are either insults, tribal or just pure unslamic. Every article i go to i see the darood mentality where thy insult people. When we take about the south, they insult them and insult mogadisho ( which is home to millions of daroodS). When we talk about somaliland, they insult issaqs and insult hargaisa. When we talk about djabouti, they insult the issa and djabouti.

    Why are darood so hateful when they are the weakest people in the horn in-terms of economy and militaristic power.

      It is because darood people have links to Jewish tribes of isreal hence they have their characteristic . Also lets not forget the founder the darood tribe Al-Jabarti is a Notorious shoe thieve who stole a pair of sandals from a mosque in Yemen while others where praying duhur prayer hence he escaped to issaqs and the issaqs fed him and treated him like one of them, thousands of years look at the action of his children.

    These kids are now living in a tribal enclave that follows some doctrine as North Korea's. They are being held hostage and against their will. They have been denied the right to even play basic sports because of the mess and lack of resources, infrastructure, organization and mayhem the separatists have created.

    They should take part in the real Somali tournament that's currently underway in Mogadishu in real facilities. The separatists could not even roll a basic artificial grass in 21 years while Mogadishu did it in 21 months. Very sad.

    My advise for the youth is not to take the separatist and their tribal enclave serious and take part in all sports whether in Bosaaso, Las Anod, Djibouti, Borama, Mogadishu or Jigjiga.

    The Gambela grievers are getting more desperate each day…now they entertaining the kids with even more outrightous lies after they failed they using the tiny one suburb Ahmed Dhahah as an excuse.

    Very sick and shameful.

      Kayse,
      Somalila might have been able to laid an artificial turf in a soccer stadium in 21 months but you're ignoring the fact that, Somalia is least developed country in the dark content. You can't feed the entire population of Somalia a roll of used artificial grass. You never fail me to laugh at your thoughtless comments everything I try to read them, mind you've been giving you the benefit of the doubt as I sensed the very first day I read your comment you had some sort of learning difficulties.

  7. Speak The Truth says:

    This is a joke if you are worried about the venue then change it to Berbera

    As for saying to wait for the diaspora then i means the teams can play people who don,t live in Somaliland.

    But that is just my though

    They should take aspect in the actual Somali competition that's currently ongoing in Mogadishu in actual features. The separatists could not even move a primary synthetic lawn in 21 decades while Mogadishu did it in 21 several weeks. Very sad.

    Why don't daroods have something awesome to see? I look at content and 99% of those published by daroods are either insults, tribe or just genuine unslamic. Every content i go to i see the darood mindset where thy offend individuals. When we take about the southern, they offend them and offend mogadisho ( which is house to an incredible number of daroodS). When we discuss somaliland, they offend issaqs and offend hargaisa. When we discuss djabouti, they offend the issa and djabouti.

  17. Great sharing thanks for sharing this blog.Your content good contant I am like your blog posting.

    Hay guys avoid smoking if you want success in sports, but if you couldnt leave this habit then I will give you an alternate option, it is best to look into the <a href="http://electronicscigarette1.blogspot.com
    ">electronic cigarette policy. The framework has great resemblance as accepting smokers, feel like them and provide a similar feeling of comfort on the ground that they do, however without adverse causes medicinal concerns simply because they don’t come with any tar or destructive material.

    They need to consider aspect inside actual Somali rivalry which is at this time constant throughout Mogadishu throughout actual functions. Your separatists couldn't possibly proceed some sort of principal man-made yard throughout 21 years of age generations whilst Mogadishu did it throughout 21 years of age weeks. Incredibly sad.
