MOGADISHU, Somalia - The Federal Government of Somalia [FGS] may have after all agreed to withdraw the Somali National Army [SNA] troops from the volatile Gedo region, reports indicate, in yet another dramatic move that could restore peace and stability in Somalia.

For several days now, Jubaland leader Ahmed Islam Mohamed Madobe and a delegation from his administration have been holed up in Mogadishu where they met the President of Somalia Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, in a meeting where solving the standoff between Mogadishu and Kismayo was mooted.

Last week, the two leaders met at Villa Somalia for dinner before holding another meeting, but it's said to have almost collapsed when they failed to agree on key issues. The two sides have been having a frosty relationship since 2019 when elections were held in Jubaland.

But on Saturday, sources privy to the ongoing talks between Jubaland and Mogadishu administration reported "progress", arguing that key issues had been solved between the two sides. One of the major issues raised by Jubaland was having all states being part of Mogadishu pre-election talks.

Currently, only Madobe and Puntland President Said Abdullahi Deni is in Mogadishu for talks having missed the third Dhusamareb conference. Southwest, HirShabelle, and Galmadug leaders had agreed to back the constituency model elections which would see close to 300 people participate in elections.

Also, the two sides are said to have reached a mutual consent to have the Somali National Army [SNA] troops withdrawn from sections of Jubaland especially in the northern Gedo region. The FGS is yet to confirm or deny reports of troops withdrawal from the volatile Gedo region.

For over 7 months now, the SNA troops have been carrying operations across Gedo and have often clashed with regional Jubaland forces. Kismayo authorities have been accusing FGS of destabilizing the region with an aim of setting a parallel administration that will rival Madobe's administration.

So fragile has been the situation that regional leadership warned of Al-Shabaab resurgence due to SNA and Jubaland forces rivalry. The US warned the two parties and called for immediate dialogue to end the standoff for the sake of peace and stability.

Sources said that the two parties "principally accepted" to remove security forces from Gedo subject to reconciliation and appointing a technical team; and other regional leaders will join up the talks, something that could lead to lasting peace in Somalia.

The federal government has been wrangling with both Jubaland and Puntland administrations of among others, controversial electoral law and resource sharing in Somalia. But three other states have a cordial relationship with the government.
The US on Saturday welcomed the meeting between Farmajo and the two leaders from Jubaland and Puntland. Washington hailed the process and asked the FGS and FMS leadership to finalize key issues before elections are done in Somalia.
"The US embassy appreciates The Villa Somalia for bringing FMS leaders together in Mogadishu. Grateful to Mr. Qoorqoor’s leadership in the Dhusamareb3 process - statesmanship Somalia needs. Encourage FGS/FMS finalize principles of agreement on broad-based consensus," read the tweet.

The only way forward is to compromise, this meeting should also include Gedo leaders. Everyone has to be on the same page in the end. :)
 
Good Farmajo has realized his transgressions were getting him nowhere. Now that we have handled JL enemy #1 Pres. Madoobe should spend more time on AS.

This is good news. Tensions have to be brought much lower if the Kismayo conference is going to be of any significance. Farmaajo never should have sent federal troops to a state that was already mostly liberated, while much of Lower Shabelle is occupied by the khawarij.

I just hope 'madoobe' doesn't trade off removal of gedo SNA for any SFG extension or accepting 'halimo yarey' electoral commission
 
the army of gedo was the mx fighting shabab since when uu madoobe abaabulay ciidamadaas
"his army" kulahaa :mjlol:
Madoobes army in lower Juba nobody cares about Mucalimo and his merry band of goat herders. Im talking about Lower Juba forces spreading eastward whilst Gedo hasnt been pacified.

Moalimu can't fund the Gedo thugs under his control, it's all funded by the SFG, once madoobe get's farmajo to bend the knee, that shit-fest in ghetto is over and will report back to jannan and JL.

The boundary of Lower Juba Middle Jubba and Gedo have been violated before. It is not a current front but there is only a weak buffer between it. Saakow district will be the easiest to capture.

Madoobe will not wage war on the AS capital whilst Gedo is importing SNA and Ethios and trying to cause trouble to his presidency openly.

Why is this so hard to comprehend? Anyways you dont need to because your Messiah has been broken :trumpsmirk:
 
@Removed do u think Somalis voted Farmajo in to destabilize JL, I honestly think there was some anti JL sentiment after HSM failed. They tried that shit also in 2001 with abdiqasim selecting ali khalif galayr who funded PL war, I think these h0tus love repeating the same tactics, xitaa in-yar inay qurxiyan weeye not constantly recycling failed h0tu policies of cause destruction in other regions, the only reason they do this is because they are so fractured within themselves and see no hope of a hawiye resurrected, their policy is to take u to hell with them.

I think Jubbaland is too valuable compared to other regions that everybody needs to try and get in particularly through “diversity”. @Thegoodshepherd made the right guess people will be moving here more and more claiming it as there own as there water forsaken regions become more dire.

Darawiishta Jubbaland must prepare themselves to handle all Mooriyaan state sponsored or not I personally think empowering Bantus around Jilib(there home district) whilst cementing our JL presence in Saakow and Buale is the best option. People who are lagaroones today like @Mckenzie @Ronaldinho and @Gabz19988 are already saying unuka leh what happens when they uplift themselves from the drone state status in GM/HS? Thankfully KG is taking care of there invasive clans currently so I think the work load will be alot less than expected. Just removing AS.

The Gedo problem must be solved beforehand they have a terrible culture and it is not possible to share anything with such a people I am convinced of that. Removing them is unethical so instead I promote moving in alot of people from NFD to dilute there voice.

A people who have the presidency but rather than supporting there state try to backstab it and bring in foreigners and other clans into there very own districts to kill their people in hopes they will kill yours too, those people should never be able to come to power again. People actually thought before a rotating presidency would solve things:drakekidding:
