Said Barre obituary

"Then in May 1986 whilst Siad was being driven through blinding rain by the Mayor of Mogadishu, his car hit a bus and was promptly rammed from the back by a vehicle full of bodyguards. Local people rushed to help, but they were machine-gunned"

The kacaan in a nutshell.
 
After British Commonwealth forces entering from Kenya overran the Italian colony early in 1941, Siad went on a course run by the King's African Rifles at Kabetti, in Kenya, and thereafter was employed in the special branch of the British Colonial Police,which took control of the Corpo Zaptie. This experience was his introduction to political intrigue, at which he proved adept. He rose to the highest rank then possible for an indigenous Somali.
 
Meantime, greedy relatives and hangers-on occupied themselves by securing ever more uneconomic loans, foreign exchange advances and unfulfilled contracts. They poached and destroyed wild fauna on a prodigious scale, not only in Somalia but across her borders in Ethiopia and particularly Kenya. The trade in ivory was so vast and profitable that Siad's own family became deeply involved.
 
At home he simply ran out of clans. The Ogadeen, the Hawiya and even the h eretofore quiet Rahanweyn deserted him. Abroad too - China, Libya, South Africa and (regrettably) Italy apart - he ran out of allies. Despite the natural timidity of the Department of State (its human rights desk quite excepted) the Congress was adamant: no human rights: no aid.
 
He dispatched most of his relatives to enjoy their often ill-gotten gains in their villas abroad, himself taking refuge in a bunker close by the capital's airport and the coral coastline of the Indian Ocean; the prelude to his last days in power.
 



Marehan mostly left Somalia before 1991, before USC descended on the city.

Imagine.

They did not even warn their MOD (Marehan, Ogaden, Dhulbahante) friends like the Dhulbahante who were ravaged in Mogadishu.


And afterwards, they turned on their MOD friends in Kismaayo.

No loyalty or gratitude

Siad came to rely more and more on his wider family, including his in-laws, and those of his clansmen who were military men rather than politicians or skilled bureaucrats. Their subsequent accelerated promotions wrecked army morale. As Siad's popularity further waned, these few followers urged even greater repression.
my father who worked for the kacaan regime told me that he saw siad barres ''bush people'' promoted to high ranking goverment/military positions within short period of time.
 
People like to criticize siyad barre, but let's look at what happened when he left Mogadishu.

Why is it that when siyad barre was toppled instead of the masses celebrating they fled. Why did your parents come to Europe or usa?

Why is there constant war and famine. Why after 30 years there is still not a government that controls the whole of somalia. Why is there qabil wars happening in 2020.

No schools have been build by the government since siyad barre. All new schools are private, health care is private.

People are even leaving peaceful areas like hargeysa is droves and are being killed in places like libya.

What actual benefit was there since the toppling of siyad barre?

0.5 clans have been enslaved and there land taken by force.

Siyad barre is gone and died, his government collapsed in 1991 and today it's almost 30 years since and we have nothing to show for it.

If what you guys are saying is true, the country should have went from dictatorship police state to a democratic free thinking society

But what you don't want to admit is that what came after siyad barre was a million times worse.

So AUN to siyad barre the greatest somali president in history

Are you yalking to yourself all you said is bolox.

He left a time kicking bomb which exploded in 1991.
When you undermine all institutions and foster suspicion amonsgt the populace and drain of the resources and use divide and rule then it means his legacy will leave those that come after in a worse off situation.

Farmajo has infact replicated it again employing unskilled and incompetent "Consultants" who want to replicate the kacanka.

The kacanka those that were cutting the feet and hands of the regime were the illiterate goons from MSB subclan.

Incharge of the Treasury,Military,Foreign Relations,Domestic relations etc

Even MSB said that he was leaving land and no people in Somalia.
 
Ask ANY Marehan when their family left Somalia, especially those from the same subclan as Siyad Barre.

That will tell you ALL you need to know.

HINT: It was before the civil war kicked off, why didn't they warn other Somalis?

Siyad Barre supporters are not normal.

He literally ordered the murder/rape/poisoning of civilians and even in this topic, we have evidence that his bodyguards murdered people who tried to HELP him.

This is just bizarre, this level of delusion.

Aside from Aideed and the 1991 warlords, is there ANY leader that has so much evidence that proves he was a sociopath?

They were paranoid.

MX left mogadishu because everyone wanted MX blood from isaaq in the north all the way to garre in mandeera Kenya.

at the time MX left xamar the MJ where with SSDF and SSDF and USC where allies against the government. MJ thought that the USC would only target MX so they stayed behind little did they know Aidiid hated MJ more then MX.

that is why the most darod killed in mogadishu where MJ.
