Shabelle river dammed by Ethiopia for second time in the year. Enjoy your brotherhood with Ethiopia. The famine will happen in north and south. The rivers are under international protection and no country can block or dam it according to the International laws without agreements.

Nah nigga you Freudian slipped with that "yet" :birdman:
I assumed it is going to be built from various articles I've read, I've heard nothing since.
Also I technically haven't seeming as this accusation is about blaming the dam for the current drought/dried out river, which can't be right if it doesn't exist:mjpls:
 
Because of the climate
The leader of Somali regional federal state of Ethiopia Abdi Mohamud Omar (Iley) said they have deliberately stopped the water flow into Shabelle rivers, the main resources of Somalis.

"We are storing Shabelle river water flow behind the walls for a dam purpose and irrigation of our own farming fields in Somali region of Ethiopia," said Iley.


He said the move is more important for his people rather than the dying Somalis who are 80% dependent on the Shabelle river water, in terms of their cultivation of the farms.

The comments by the leader of Somali regional administration of Ethiopia come as Shabelle river water which come from Ethiopia and goes through southern Somalia has dried up, causing sever drought.
 
The Damm was constructed about 20 years ago if not before but it never affected the flow, that's not the issue, what ppl never put in consider is that the river doesn't come straight to the Somali border the the river flows over 500 km In the Somali region dds, and the once conflict prone region has been seeing peace and developments and many started farming which in some ways means that they are taking thier fair share of the water recourses and The more those folks farm the worse it gets for the one's that recieve the flow last, places like lower shabelle are pretty much done, and by the way thinks are looking, even in the rainy season the flow of the river will probably just cut of in the border region.

The biggest mistake Somalia ever made was not having an water sharing agreement with the highlanders, now it's pretty much game over in less then a few years

That was one of the reasons of Ogaden war securing our water resources.
