Somalilandsun: The two years extension the President Farmajo adminstestion is a licence for Somalia to continue scamming the international community.
“And in comparison to ‘can do’ Somaliland looks better and Better”
This is according to Former US Deputy Secretary of State for Africa and US Ambassador to Guinea and Ethiopia Tibor Nagy
In a brief statement posted on his Twitter account,@TiborPNagyJr the diplomat wrote
The reply is by another US diplomat with extensive experience in Africa Dr J. Phamm a former US special envoy to the Sahel region and Great lakes
This argument by the diplomat similarly to a recent one by former US secretary of state in charge of the Arican Desk Jandaya Frazier in which she regretted her failure to push for US recogntion of Somaliland is a discernible push for a change of Somalia engagement strategy by the President Biden administration.
Similar sentiments on the imperatives of a new US strategy for Somalia vis “a” Somaliland have regularly been AIRED by Michael Rubin a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI)
Earlier on Ambassador Tibor Nagy had tweeted through #SomailiaNeedsChangeNow that “Diaspora and International Community fund Somalia – for what? Even Shabaab raises more taxes than Govt! What has Farmajo regime accomplished besides staying in power? Ineptness, incompetence, corruption? What a contrast with “can do” Somaliland!
In Washington DC the White House appears to have not only taken note but action as well after President Biden appointed Larry Edward André, Jr. to Replace Yamamoto as US Ambassador to Somalia
