    Somali/Cushite Social Media Movement

    Republic of Somaliland was never colonised

    To say that Somaliland was a colony is offensive. As far as Somaliland is concerned, it's not historically accurate. Somalia Italiana was a full blown colony with upto 60,000 white Italians settlers. Somaliland was not a colony, it was only a protectorate of Great Britain, with whom it had...
