Hiraab Imamate? WTF is that? Could you show me their castles, armies, written documents and so on? Anything even pointing towards its existence outside some marfish?The picture you're showing is them signing treaties to their Italian masters in Mogadishu. Nice try.
Plus, Hobyo Sultanate was a joint coalition of Omar Mahamood section of Majerteen (Dafarood) and Habar Gidir a sub sub clan of Hawiye. It was no different of Somaliland (Isaaq) ruling your Harti brothers and you tried liberating them but they karbash you very hard.
And yes, Yemenis were the ones who did the fighting not the weakling Majerteens. They were able to conquer a small section of Hiraab Imamate land since Hiraab Imamate was in a war but were still able to resist them and Hiraab Imamate was still strong and standing.
"By the late 19th century, the imamate began to decline. Faced with internal problems, the imamate also faced challenges from the imperialist forces as well as the Zanzibari sultan, and even the Portuguese in the earlier years. By then, a young ambitious rebel of the Majeerteen managed to invade Hobyo with an army of Yemeni musketeers and declared himself the sultan of Hobyo. After few years, the Sultan was disposed and overthrown by a former commander of the Imamate named Guuleed Faarax Jeex who put Hobyo back into the hands of the Imamate for a short period of time .
Soon afterwards, the entire region was snapped up by the fascists Italians and it led to the birth of a Modern Somalia. However, the Hiraab hereditary leadership has remained intact up to this day and enjoys a dominant influence in national Somali affairs."
I can post which Emirs that controlled Dhuusamareeb, El Bur, Harardheere and Hobyo. You had no upperhand against the Habar Gidir.
Whilst Zanzibars and Majerteen were quarreling over Hawiye land in Middle Shabelle, where the f*ck was this so called Hiraab Sultanate?
