Mogadishu, from dire to fragile metropolitan

The Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture
(SOMESHA) is circulating a report for the current and past Mogadishu
situation overview shortly.

Mogadishu is the capital city of Somalia and has been mired in
violence and lawlessness spurred by the efforts of Corrupt
businessmen, warlords, clan based militias and other violent radical
groups, more than two decades Mogadishu has not had a central
institutions, good public infrastructures and Somalis living it were
under violent behaviour since the collapse of military rule in 1991.

After the 911 attacks on the world trade centers in New York City of
the United States, the Somalia’s capital of Mogadishu has been a scene of Al-Qaeda recruiters and save haven for foreign fighters this caused also the formation of Islamism militias which took the control over Mogadishu and large parts of the south and central of Somalia and restored the peace and security with in six months in power.

At the end of 2006 bloody fighting between the Ethiopian troops
entered in Somalia and the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) accrued. And
after the breakdown of the ICU law so many sporadic fighting among
Ethiopian troops along with TFG soldiers and Islamist militia in
different names has erupted in across Somalia’s capital of Mogadishu
and in most of south and central of Somalia.

This eventually brought the Ethiopian envision by the end of 2006
causing bloody fighting between the Ethiopian troops entered in
Somalia and the Islamic militias in different names,
this followed by nationwide anger by the Somalis accusing of the
Ethiopians to destabilizing the country once they seen a little
progress in peace during the administration of the Islamic courts
union (ICU) there were arguments over how to stop the violence as in
spite of promises to halt the war if Ethiopians withdraw from Somalia
have been circling throughout the country,

but break division among rebel fighters has soon emerging when group
of Islamic movements led by Sharif Sheikh Ahmed the incumbent
president from a small wing based in Eritrea’s capital Asmara has came to power in 2009, in an effort brokered by the United Nations former special representative Ahmedu Walad Abdalah in Djibouti through parliamentary reform,

Alshabab which has many fighters from Afghanistan and other parts of
the world had start to expand its power across the country declaring
another war against Ahmed’s new government and the African Union
soldiers in Mogadishu, This had lose the worth of tiny hope for peace anticipation by a millions of Somalis who had fled in to the outskirt of the capital Mogadishu and outside of the country as well during the war in Mogadishu in time,

“The people wanted to restart their lives and finish the live under
the trees, under the tents of outside the city, but this time people
are very experienced in the conflict, some families have already
makeshifts and houses outside Mogadishu to save their lives said
Sheikh Aden Guled Somali elder resident in Mogadishu, Al-Shabab
became dominant power in large swathes of the country specially the
south and central regions and in capital Mogadishu as well before the
group had announced to abandon from the city on August last year.

The international community and Somalis from Diasporas have responded
the drought conditions which have taken dozens of lives in across
Somalia. The heroic visit of the Turkish Prime Minister to Mogadishu
marked a new era for millions of Somalis, particularly women and
children, whose misery, has been ignored for so many years. As a
result of the prime Minister’s visit, many other foreign delegations
from the Arab, Asia and European countries flocked into Mogadishu,
promising an end to the human suffering and famine.

On January 24 2012 – The Special Representative of the UN
Secretary-General (SRSG) for Somalia, Ambassador Augustine P. Mahiga
moved the office of the SRSG back to Mogadishu after an absence of
more than 17 years. Ambassador Mahiga, who was welcomed at the airport by Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Ali, Somali Officials and foreign diplomats, said he was delighted that the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS) would now be working from the capital.

Somalia people started to go back their houses in Mogadishu to enjoy
the renewable peace throughout the city although many of them are not
able to rebuild their houses due to lack of adequate finances. This
comes after the TFG and AMISOM asked the people to depart from Afgoye
area in anticipation of a military operation on earlier this month of
February, 2012.
