When Somaliland politicians recently met with their Somali counterparts in London and Dubai, the President of Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland Abdirahman M. Farole threw verbal tantrums. While the majority of the Somali people and the international community said the meetings were “major boost to the peace process in the Horn of Africa,” Farole just felt threatened.
His mission has long being to play the middle man between Mogadishu and Hargeisa — he feels he will no longer play the two against each others.
He tried every trick to disrupt the negotiations between Somaliland and the Transitional government of Somalia but the international community has refused to entertain his never ending tantrums.
Ever since the signing of the Chevening Declaration and Dubai Statement, Farole has been throwing himself on the ground kicking and screaming, demanding he is giving the entry pass so he may disrupt the talks.
His wild tantrums even caught the eyes of the Puntland parliament, who suggested a tough love approach and offered to wipe his tears while urging him to step down. They insisted that he was trying to use this kind of rhetoric to distort away from his failed record.
Now after every melt down has failed, today he called on Puntland to declare war on Somaliland despite being chased and crashed every time he attempted for the last four years. His little militia was even defeated by the newly formed two-men Khaatumo rebels.
Mr. Farole is now in the early stages of destabilizing the Sool region of Somaliland where he is reportedly massing up an already defeated and broke ragtag militia.
Farole should know public tantrums are so unappealing and make one look like an idiot.
