My mom and dad were home at the time the serious explosion started. We lived in Yaqshid, which was close to the entrance to Mogadishu from Balad.

This meant that my parents were the first group of people to have an inkling of the approaching calamity.

The rebels of the USC first infiltrated the capital and they stored weaponry in trusted homes.

The initial explosion took place one faithful day, to signal that everyone should grab their stashed weapon.

The next day ragtag young men with macawiis stood at almost every street and every intersection. The insurrection was in full force.

The elite government people, with their family ( usually all Daroods, they were collectively hated and blamed at the time) clustered around an area on each district for mutual protection. They abandoned their homes. The predator became the hunted.

When fighting reached unbearable stature these Daroods seen what was written on the wall as Siad Barre was crumbling and they had intelligence that the old man will breakout of the entrapment ( he was trapped the last week of the fighting and had used the beach to getaway ) so they all exited the capital and they gathered in Afgoi.

Then the USC (Hawiye) came hinting for them and the Daroods ran to Kidmaayo. Here is where the Daaroods regrouped and collected all their weapons. They then staged a spirited karbashing of the USC which bushed the USC all the way back to Afgoye.

This is where the the disaster happened, the disaster that broke the Daroods unrelenting thirst for power. This episode happened because MJ realized that this coalition of Daaroods are about to retake the capital and the seat of power and this meant that their arch enemy, Siad Barre, will be restored. At this moment of great betrayal the MJ guarding the outer flanks at Afgoye quietly withdrew and this allowed the USC, led by the brilliant General Caydiid, to come behind them which put a great horror on the Darood and which made them lose command and control. Here, a lot of major Generals of the Daarood died. This is where really Siad's last great stand took place. This is where Siad cursed the Somali nation to half century of disarray ( we still got 25 yo go ). The curse still is on the Somali nation.

Who's this "big foot" you speak of..

Anyways...listen...let's not get very micro analytic on this non-important Somali tragedy, it ain't like the fucking siege of Stalingrad ( if you want to be mesmerized and shocked at mankind's ability of warfare you must watch a documentary on the siege of Stalingrad and Leningrad )

Long story short I am assuming that you are attempting to blame Omar Jees?

My mom was 7 months pregnant with me and she was in kismayo at the time and my dad was in Hamar. He left immediately after the war begun but couldn't go south so he went North to Djbouti. My mom gave birth while fleeing and we left all of Somalia a year after that.

Regardless if our families were present in Mogadishu during the beginning of the civil war or not, it was a tragedy for all of us. Many of us have told our stories. There is one person, however, whose story has not yet been told. I am honored to share the story of SiennaEarth's parents on that fateful day.

The explosions occurred right after Malabey Munye, Sienna's mother, sold her last shushumo of the day in her neighborhood of Shangani. When she ran home, a short distance from her sambus and sweets stand, she encountered her family boarding onto a minibus. Spotting her from one of the windows of the bus, her father gestured for her to get in. After traveling a few kilometers south, the minibus was stopped by seven young men armed with Kalashnikovs. They told everyone on the bus to get out and stripped them all of their valuables, even the womens' earrings. One of the young men, later known to be Liban Hussein Ali, grabbed Malabey by the arm and pulled her away to a house near the illegal checkpoint. Malabey's father, Aweis Munye, a prominent shoemaker, attempted to stop Liban but was subsequently hit in the head with the butt of the rusted AK-47 by one of the other men. They were later ushered back into the minibus and disappeared into the sunset.

In the house, a terrified Malabey trembled in a corner of the room. "Baba!," she cried out. Liban grabbed her and told her to stop crying but to no avail. The following week, they departed for the barren desert of Galgaduud. During their second night in Cadaado, Liban told her that she was now his wife and she belonged to him. Two months later, Liban, accompanied by a now pregnant Malabey, returned to Mogadishu and boarded a flight to London Heathrow, one of the last commercial flights out of Somalia. In October of that year, their eldest daughter was born in a hospital in South London. Since then, she's given birth to four more daughters. The family have been living in the same Stockwell flat since their arrival in the UK. Malabey hasn't seen her family since that fateful day in January 1991. She hopes to find them one day.
