Who will take care of it?
During the anarchy period in our country that we lost the mere
existence as a sovereign nation and the honor of belonging to a
recognized nation, many Somali citizens suffered huge losses
that can not be concluded within this short space. The lack of
security inside the country , the inter-clan fighting in some
parts of the country and all tragedies and difficulties
associated with anarchy are at least noticed and attempts to
overcome them being made by installing an interim government
that is so far unable to function. What about the many unnoticed
or unaccounted for losses that need emergency care .
will take care of them?
Let me refresh our memory to mention some of them so that all
the concerned and those with the ability to change will try to
take care of them.
Who till take care of them?
The Somali child from low class family who could have
completed high school education and started a Somali
National University , had there been a government.
The wastage of potential Somali wisdom from genius Somali
Thinkers, scientists , Medical Doctors ,Writers,
Politicians, Historians, Engineers, Lawyers, Psychologists,
Philosophers and Islamic Scholars. The wisdom could have
contributed to the development of a strong and progressive
Somali society as well as to the global peace and prosperity
in the world.
The Prevention and containment of the spread of critically
epidemic diseases through vaccination & other national
The Preservation of national heritage and prevention of
environmental decay in the country.
The Somali workers in the Arab Gulf countries, who are arrested,
harassed and deported causing some of them financial losses,
moral breakdown and social abuse.
The Prevention of Somali values in the world's silent
The prevention of the possibility of going back to Square One

The uncensored media flow in the country that attracts filthy
minds to the country.
Decrease in the weight of the Somali national flag in the United
Nations Organization chamber (On request, further explanation
will be given on this point).
Lack of Government nurtured public view about international
( Today the Somali public political favouring can be snatched or
distracted any time ).
The total destruction of the public confidence to any government
in the future.
The Somali Business Man with his national passport who is denied
entry visa to any country in the world because the Somali
national passport is not recognized any where in the world.
The loss of the proud way of saying - "Hey I am a Somali".
If you never realized that above losses ever occurred since the
anarchy in Somalia, you better stand up to learn more.
If you knew all these and more losses but never cared about them
, you are part of the loss the nation suffered since the
civilian uprising. The nation lost you and the thousands of
potential citizens like you who are careless to the problems in
the country just like a foreigner. Correct yourself and come
back to where you belong. Feel concerned and worried along with
the others to make the necessary change.
If you knew all these losses and made your best attempts to save
the nation but feel that unskilled drivers are trying to lead us
all to an unknown destination, never give up hope and let us
join hands to save the nation together.
Take the pen to submit your opinion to the New Somali Group that
is committed to initiate a total change.
