  1. The United Nations rightly sensed and recognised that the outlaw thug outfit posing as a “government” in Mogadishu, Somalia, is neither a government nor a responsible group even compared to other crime syndicates like it. Therefore the UN extended the sanctions on these thugs in Mogadishu to hamper their extensive illicit activities.

    The Somalia race which live in the following 5 countries in the Horn of Africa welcomes the UN security councils decision with great joy.

    Republic of Somaliland (Hargeisa)
    Republic of Somalia (Mogadishu)
    Djibouti (Djibouti city)
    Somali State of Ethiopia (Jigjiga)
    NFD of Kenya (Gaarisa)

    Good job UN.
