They probably appeal to his non-Somali "arab" side, "we're arabs, let's control the Somalis together, you're the perfect person to lead them etc."But the question is where and how will SWS break out? Like they are surrounded by Somalis all the way? I know that shariff sakin is not ethnic Somali.
That's the usual b.s they give to pre-despots.
How will SWS breakout? Probably around PM Khayre's impeachment. Perfect time as the government will be in turmoil, the masses will be distracted, and he can justify it to the international community via/by advertizing the security and safety in his region.
