Iman visits Somalia

has anyone told you this? Or have you seen anywhere that Siad’s troops were burning farms?

Difference between “people CAN tell you this” and “people HAVE told me this”. Unless someone 50+ has told you this I don’t buy it, and don’t lie now. There’s no reason to lie over something like this.


SNF was largely remnants of SNA under direct leadership of Barre then Morgan. They looted food grains while USC burned down the farms. Both USC & SNF share the blame of 92-93 famine.

"The final straw was the 1991-1992 occupation by the SNF, which had engaged in systematic and comprehensive looting of food, livestock, household possessions and even clothes. One relief worker reported that Rahanweyn women, robbed of even their clothes, were so destitute and demoralized that they would not leave their houses despite imminent starvation."

1992 when morgan was defacto head of the snf reer gedo went on a revenge campaign against reer bay and bakool for supporting the capturing of gedo. baidoa saw some of the worst fighting and changed hands countless time from 1990-1992.
 
Peeps arguing about who did what and forgetting the human impact. This is why our country is in the dumps , too worried about such and such clan.

I hope iman helped that lady crying Thats was the saddest part

Why did she cry out of nowhere? She was calm when she talked about her late husband and her ill son, but the gates of tears opened out of nowhere. Very sad

She’s been holding it in for so long and imans soft tone just made her pour out crying. I also think becuase she is starving.

I dont understand why RX didn create a militia then I know they created 1 very late. Maybe they assumed after siad left that everything would go smooth and trusted poeple to make a new gouverment?

Lots of Somali families broke apart during the course of the war and the subsequent fleeing to the West.

The greatest tragedy in Somali history was this cursed war.
I can see sadness in their eyes, the two sisters have married out of the culture .
Her brother Faisal married a zanzabari ( mixed) & he seems like he is more family oriented and religious, his wife is a hijabi and so are his two young daughters. He’s got like 6 or 7 kids Mashallah.
