Somali Concern Group
12 Barnsbury Road, London N1 0HB
Somali Concern Group (SCG) is shocked by the
unconcealed treacherous statement made by the
Minister of Interior of the TFG, Hussein Aidid.
We totally deplore and condemn this statement
and we demand the President and Prime Minister
to immediately clarify whether such plans or
agreements are in place or already signed
between the Ethiopians and TFG.
Aidid’s statement reads:
Xuseen Caydiid, waxaa uu yiri: "2 malyan oo
qaxootigeena boqolkii 60 itoobiyay joogaan,
baasaboorka itoobiyay qaataan, dhulka itoobiyay
ku nool yihiin, dibaday ku aadaan, way ka soo
laabtaan, xoolo dhaqatada waa galaan, waa ka soo
laabtaan, haye xudduud laba kun oo kilomitir
ayaa isla leenahay, xudduudaas in aan baabi'naan
rabnaa xitaa, maxaa yeelay walaalaan nahay wax
noo dhaxeeya ma jirto, hal baasaboor, hal ciidan,
security iyo hal dhaqaale in aan suubsanaan
rabnaa." Source British Broadcasting Corporation
Here is the translated statement:
Hussein Aidid stated: “ 60% of our 2 million of
our refugees are in Ethiopia, they have
Ethiopian passport, they live in Ethiopia, they
use it (passport) when travelling abroad and
come back, the pastoralists to Ethiopia and come
back, we have two thousand kilometre border with
them, we want to abolish that border, because we
are brothers and have no problem between us, we
want to have one passport, one army, security
and one economy”.
The Minister deliberately ignored the fact that
4-5 million ethnic Somalis live in the
exclusively Somali populated Eastern region of
current Ethiopia. Somalis in this region have
every right to use Ethiopia passport, travel
abroad and come back. It is also a fact that
some Somali refugees may have bribed Ethiopian
authorities to illegally get Ethiopian
passports. That doesn’t mean they have legally
acquired the passports.
Hussein Aidid’s blatant statement over the fate
of our homeland is grossly serious and cannot be
decided by an institution that is transitional
in nature. The TFG is a reconciliatory body and
has no legal power to enter any agreements that
determine the future of the Somali nation. Only
a government elected by the people of Somalia
(not a transitional government) has such legal
powers to enter treaties/arrangements with
foreign countries or organizations. And only
after the government asks the people of Somalia
in a national referendum to overwhelmingly vote
in favour of such policy. Before that time, no
such policy can be discussed.
We, therefore, demand the leadership of the TFG
to explain its position on this undignified
statement made by one of its senior Minister. If
the TFG doesn’t officially clarify its position,
the Somali people will assume the statement of
Hussein Aidid is a warning of what going to
happen in the future. It is a gross misjudgement
of Somali people’s self-determination and throws
the fate of the Somali nation in doubt. Such
treacherous statement/thinking cannot be
We also remind the TFG that the Ethiopian
occupation in Somalia is constitutionally
illegal because it was not passed by the
transitional parliament. It also breaches the UN
resolutions on the arms embargo and explicitly
excluding the frontline states in taking part
the proposed African peace-keepers. The Somali
people demand the immediate and unconditional
withdrawal of the Ethiopia troops from Somalia.
