The FINANCIAL — The executive committee of the Wagosha Movement of Somalia, has strongly criticized the ongoing meeting on Kenyan soil trying to solidify the ill-advised establishment of the so called "Azania State" in Somalia.
The movement said it was unfortunate to see Kenya being used by individuals with clan interests and characterized it as a move that can undermine the stability in the Jubba regions of Southern Somalia and the whole continental region around the Horn of Africa.
The Chairman of the Wagosha Movement of Somalia, Eng Yarow Sharef Aden said Kenya was supposed to play a regional role in resolving the Somalia crisis, but instead some Ogaden clan individuals have been given a go ahead to create more trouble in Somalia.
The Executive Committee of Wagosha said Kenyan nationals like Abdirahman Olow, Mohamed Yusuf Haji, Farah Moalim, Ilyas Barre Shil, Nuradin Mohamed Yusuf Haji and others, who all hail from the same clan of the Ogaden become the ears, eyes and strong-arms of the Kenyan nation concerning the Jubbaland issues. Their only aim they are campaigning for, is to create an Ogaden entity in Jubbaland and cleanse the people from all other clans including the majority Bantu people of Wagosha and use this Somali region for their own selfish gains.
The people from the Ogaden clan and their region to the west of today's Somalia invaded the southern Jubbaland only after the second world war and could hold some positions with the help of the former government of strongman Siad Barre. "They lost their own homeland in the Ogaden to the Abyssinian government and do not want to go back despite having their own regional state there, and now they want to conquer our lands instead," explained Col. Mkomwa, the deputy chairman of the Wagosha Movement.
“We have been telling the world for a long time that the Ogaden clan in the North-Eastern Province of Kenya is harbouring Al-Shabab members. We revealed that senior members of Al-Shabab in Jubbaland and other parts in Somalia are from Garissa in Kenya. Today the UN monitoring group in its report has confirmed our claims”, added Eng Yarow Sharef Aden, who accused the Ogaden clan politicians of hiding the truth about how the districts they claim are used by Al-Shabab members.
Eng Yarow said Jubbaland will be the Soweto and Niger Delta of the Horn of Africa, if Mohamed Abdi Gandi, a French passport holder, does not stop his sick idea of conquering the land of the Wagosha people. Already the choice of the name " AZANIA " for his dreamed up, personal thiefdom shows the confusion of mind and the Wagosha people urge especially the French to withdraw their funding from this neo-colonial initiative.
Neither the South African Socialist Party of Azania (SOPA) under their leader Lybon Masaba , nor the Azanian People's Organisation (AZAPO) of South Africa or the Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC), based in South Africa have anything to do with the ill-fated initiative of a single Somali man – pushed by his clan, foreign money and the political opponents of a united and strong Somalia.
This imperialist move by Mr. Mohamed Abdi, who was with French backing and funds for a short while defence minister of the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia until he got sacked, is spearheaded by the Ogaden, seconded by Ethiopia and Kenya and bankrolled by French governmental and oil interests.
The Wagosha Movement has reiterated its decision of opposing any outcome from the so called "Azania" meeting in Kenya, adding that the movement will fight against the Ogaden invaders from Ethiopia, called Zone Five, and those from North East Province of Kenya or from the Puntland region of Somalia.
The Wagosha people call on the international community to take part in resolving the Somalia crisis and end the slavery of the Somali nationals of Bantu origin and the apartheid regime oppressing all Somali minorities in the Jubba regions and other parts of the country.
