To : Residents of
Governor of Banadir: Mohamud Hassan Ali Gabow Adde
Prime Minister : Ali Mohamed Geedi
President : Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed
We are yet dismayed by the announcement of an illegimate administration
in Banadir region by the Mogadishu warlords. We would like to condemn
this action in the strongest terms possible and urge all sensible and
peace loving people of Banadir region to stand up against this ill-fated
mis-adventure by the Mogadishu warlords.
Earlier this year the PM of Somalia has appointed by decree Hon 'Adde
Hassan Ali Gabow as the the Governor of Banadir and Mayor of Mogadishu
and given the difficult task of bringing to order the poisoned chalice
of the Somali quagmire ie Banadir. To this Hon Adde has undertaken
to fulfil this task and brought together the civil society of the people
of Banadir and given them hope that once again they can regain their peace
and order in their region. Meanwhile those that have brought misery to
the people of Banadir for the last 15 years in the form of anarchy and
daily killings of the young, women, elderly and not to mention the intellectuals
of the Banadir region have been active in what they do best
misery. They have continuously engaged in acts of terror and misdemenour
in the administration of 'Adde.
The people of Banadir have spoken before and will do now
in the strongest terms possible any attempt to bring back chaos and misery
to the people of Banadir and the so-called Banadir administration put
together by the Mogadishu warlords.
May peace and prosperity reign in the Banadir region and its people.
Friends of Banadir
