Somaliland: Bihi-Kahin Move Quite Bizarre For Any Ruling Party Anywhere!



Musa Bihi Kulmiye party chair  and presidsential hopeful

Somalilandsun – It needs no further explanation when the President decides to brave all weathers and for the umpteenth time, as he has always done, engage in another unprecedented move.
Nowhere on earth have we seen a seating administration running a government face opposition from/in its own backyard with belligerents wanting to overthrow the seating, thus publicly elected, President!

This is no equivalent of a Tory head being replaced as party chair hence by extension, the premiership as was the UK case when John Major replaced Margaret Thatcher.
Our constitution does not have an article which spells for the allowance of change of guard in the party which in turn, for a ruling party, expressly replaces the PM.
Our President was voted for and in to the statehouses by the populace.
The parallel should be outlined herein that when the Tories replaced Thatcher, it was squarely because they feared that she wouldn’t be able to lead them into an unprecedented fourth term to office following the long industrial riots.
They did not do so because of tribal Scottish/ English/Welsh or Irish whims.
They did not do it because of perceived love-lost or associated belligerences or factional tag-of-wars within their own party.
They did not do so because of the feeling that the country belonged to them as their own personal property.
Rather, the UK people did so because of the solid trust they had in their party and people whilst unified and because their laws and constitutions likewise allowed them to do so.
However when the power of the ballots of the mainstream population decided who should occupy the top-most hot seat, there has never been any political party (ruling) anywhere on earth which “Impeached” its own elected national CEO by subjecting him/her to the party rigours!
What the Muse Bihi faction has done will definitely go down in history as the darkest days for democratically elected ruling parties.
They have decided to challenge the national CEO by trying to deny him his democratically constitutional right of a second term incumbency not because they love their party or country at all. The overly uncommonsensical move they have done only weakens the ruling party before its own eyes and those of its challengers. Don’t they see this? Surely, we believe that they do hence to engage into such naivety, we believe again, has to it more than meets the eyes.
However, the President has bravely risen to the occasion and accepted the bizarre challenge from his own backyard. Of course the confidence he exudes is quite tangible for it is backed with widespread support.
Political pundits and observers have been confounded by the childish move to hurt KULMIYE.
It is also seen as an abuse to the brains, minds, souls and emotions of Somalilanders wherever they are.
All voices without reasons that think this is democracy at its height are equally not true to KULMIYE members.
You can not weaken a party and at the same time assumedly claim that you are building it “in the name of democracy”!
The President’s support is wide and he should rather be supported against Wadani and Ucid.
