The Treason of the Ruling Class, Sa’iid Danni, the head of Puntland Regional State and his Rogue Team.
The Elite/Oligarch Ruling class, including Faroole former Putland head of state, and Omar Abdirashiid former Somali Prime Minister, no longer has legitimacy to rule. They have destroyed our fledgling democracy and replaced it with a mafia state, remotely controlled by United Arab Emirates, and Kenya. What the Roman philosopher Cicero called a Commonwealth, a res publica, a “public thing” or the “property of the desperate/helpless people of Puntland,” has been being transformed into an instrument of naked pillage and repression on behalf of the global corporate oligarchy, particularly UAE.
We are serfs ruled by obscenely rich, omnipotent masters who loot the Puntland Treasury, pay little or no taxes and have perverted the judiciary, the media and the legislative branches of the Puntland state to strip us of our people’s civil liberties and give themselves a license and freedom to commit financial fraud and theft.
The loss of control over our system of ruler-ship, the misuse of all democratic institutions, the electoral process and laws to funnel money upwards into a handful of oligarchs, while stripping us of power, ominously means that the ruling elites can no longer claim the right to have a monopoly on violence.
Violence employed by police and Para-military (locally known as Daraawiish), which have devolved into occupying forces, to protect the exclusive interests of a tiny, ruling criminal class exposes the fiction of the rule of law and the treason of the ruling class.
How long can you expect people to watch their children go hungry?
How long can you expect people to watch their loved ones suffer and die because they can’t get medical care?
How long can you expect people to be abused by lawless police and a court system designed to railroad the innocent poor into jails and prisons?
How long can you watch the rich profit from our misery which I know too intimately from my two decades as a journalist/activist/teacher. The only option available for the people of Puntland are to wake-up, united and speak up….
Said Dani pursues his own/personal interest; Focuses on issues of GEDO region, which is not even part of his state’s Territory, but considers it as it is his backyard; while people of Puntland are suffering from multiple problems including hunger, poverty, inflation, lack of security, injustice, etc.
Puntland belongs to Puntlandese, NOT for UAE, NOT for Rogue mis-leaders and more..
