Can Somalis build a new modern city like Egypt?

Egypt is building a whole new capital city bigger than Singapore, with a central park 2x the size of the one in NYC, with a new large airport, a railway system. The new capital city will have 7 million residents.
And all of these new infrastructure will cost $58 billions.
If the city attracts 1 to 1.5 million investors, it will only cost us $250-400 a month for 10 years depending on how big, private, close to the centre/important locations you want your house to be.
We should stop wasting money on Nairobi, Turkey, South Africa, Tanzania when we can build our own Dubai in our country.

building a new exclusive capital so peasants in Cairo can't topple the government with protests
I'm sure that's a factor, but IMO the major reason for the undertaking of the project was to relieve congestion in Cairo, which is already one of the world's most crowded cities. Trying to prevent a Dhaka 2.0

You get rid of terrorist by improving the standard of living first.

If Somalia pushed all our funding and created tax incentives for a mega city near the Jubba river; most our problems will be solved.

AS won't have anyone to recruit and it'll be much harder for them to hide within the rural communities.
Jubba river security is too easily compromised by Shabaab.

A mega city would be have to around Galkayo. It’s in the centre of Somalia. Security can be defended by two States and the FGS. Many stakeholders live there rather than just one qabiil.

No point building a city somewhere Shabaab can easily reach/tax and is too far away from the North.

Turn the South into farms and a water resource that can supply the North/Central Somalia where the city life is.

AS is rampant in Jamaane and the Jubba region because there's currently no economic incentives to secure the region.

If you build a city there you can invest more in security and also protect our most important future agriculture belt.

If you build in Galkayo you'll leave most the south wide open for AS to tax. Let's not forget where they usually import their weapons and recruits from.... Kenyan border.

Move everyone who isn’t Shabaab to Galkayo then bomb the shit out of the south till everyone left is dead. Then you start moving down south for agriculture investment.

Build a wall in the meantime. We have to be creative. It’s near impossible to keep the South secure given the landscape. Shabaab can hide out in the land very easily and conduct Guerilla wars. Whereas Beesha Dexe is flatter.

Wtf nomadic lifestyle in 2030s?
Only technological advanced societies will be able to live a stable life in this climate change chaos.
Being low IQ nomad will be an easy ticket for extinction

You got to give it to them back home. Despite all of the struggles, the population is growing. They ain’t going anywhere.

we should educate them though. Separate them into groups and let them have a couple of skills essential for running the city.
Everyone is a stakeholder now. Loyalty is to their check’s instead of qabiil now.

Central Somalia is not suitable for cities, the heat, the water scarcity, the lack of greenery, the sandy flat & weak soil to much challenges in those regions.
Only South Somalia, Nugaal, Sanaag, Waqooyi galbeed, Awdal are suitable for cities and industries

Kismaayo is the only real option
