Ahmed, a former Intergovernmental Authority on Development´s (IGAD) official said that Somalia´s present and past problems are based on the attempt of reiventing the wheel.
Security´s challenges have local solutions that leaders have overlooked, he added without offering further details.
“Somalia lacks institutional memory in government, so we must listen more to our elders. In order to reconcile our people, we must take a look to our mental strength, that resides in our elders. They know how to solve differences”, he stressed.
Although Ahmed aspires to the presidency, the fact is that the presidential elections have not yet been scheduled.
The joust for the Somali Federal Parliament (bicameral) is now due to close on the 15th, after missing the February 25 deadline and earlier the December 2021 deadline.
The culmination of the election will lead to the election of another head of state, since the mandate of Mohamed Abdullahi “Farmajo” ended in April last year without the election of his successor.
Somalia lives in a political instability since the 1991 overthrow of the late president Mohamed Siad Barre.
Armed extremist groups operate virtually unchecked in the country´s south and center rural areas, besides, Farmajo and Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble live in permanent polar opposites.
