The nomad was the biggest security risk because they were the ones helping the colonizer so they can get a few new trinkets.
Most nomads aided the colonial power as a shortcut to get wealth rivaling thr nobility and merchants.Nomad here
Yep my ancestors did not contribute much to Somali history apart from commit treason against Somalia by supporting Britain against darawiish sorry guys
All maxaa tiri Somalis have at one point in history been nomads and that's why they were classed as the noble clans, while the other clans that did not, were looked down upon.
What about before zayla existed?
Some Somalis settled into cities earlier than others, but that doesn't mean they weren't nomads
So do you actually believe 3000 years ago that Somalis were city dwellers.Zayla is one of the oldest cities in Africa, what do you mean before? We were known as Avalites (Awdalies) by the Jews and Romans
Again this is the problem I have with Somalis, they want to force the Nomad narrative on anyone, but want to claim Somali empires and achievements, that were not done by nomads. Yusuf Al Kownayn was not a nomad, Ahmed Gurey was not a nomad, all of our top figures were not nomads. That should be a clue.
