Why doesn't the FGS and the federal states track Al-Shabaab locations through their phones?

These illiterate stupid terrorists use smartphones and other devices that can be tracked. They use EVC and zaad services to get their extortion money.

There needs to be a law that allows intelligence agencies to have access to data from banks and telecommunication companies pertaining people that are suspected of crimes.

Unfortunately Somalia's Intelligence Agency is evil itself and rumoured to be linked to AlShaydan and of course, implicated in the murder of its own agent Ikran Tahlil, among others.

Cuz Somalia security forces aren't united you have every state having their own security and police forces independent from Xamar central govt which makes the fight against Al shabab hard and difficult. Here needs to be coordination by all security forces in Somalia with the minister of interior and director of intelligence being the once responsible for he work of security forces and he fight against al shabab and other terrorist groups.

AS generally avoid using smartphones that have GPS capabilities.

Precisely for this reason, they make sure their members and everyone around them uses brick phones.

What would be easier is banning brick phones in Somalia, essentially forcing AS to use smartphones as soon as they need to replace their phones.
 
According to a recent defector Al Shabaab top leadership avoids using cell phones or disclosing their location for fear of drones. The lower rank members still use cell phones but government can not guarantee the safety of telecom companies in case they cooperate with FGS.


Let's be honest a lot of government institutions including the military are penetrated by Al Shabaab they know what's up. The big elephant in the room is passive complacently of government employees/officials with statues quo. There is no real effort and motivation to get rid of Al Shabaab they appear to accept their shadow presence and try to co exist going along the current.

AS is funded by Qatar and Fahad Yasin is a middle man.

that’s not an issue, even brick phones are more than sufficient for tracking.

what the gov needs to do, and make an absolute priority over everything:
1. Introduce new biometric system tied to national Id. Apparently Pakistan was supposed to help with this, but just with 99% of the governments plans, nothing comes to fruition.


2. Tie all SIM cards to this biometric system. Many countries do this, Saudi Arabia, China, Australia, Pakistan off top my head. Sure there are many more.

do what Pakistan did and set a hard limit for this transition, if your id is not verified that sim will be blocked.


3. (Bonus) automatic voice fingerprint recognition

this sounds like sci fi but this technology has been used by NSA more than 20yrs ago and this tech can be bought off the shelf today & integrates with the telecom systems

you can track individuals that you already have voice print of, and track them regardless of what sim they are using.

this can be all planned & implemented from scratch to a T in less than 18 months. Just needs a government that gives a f*ck

Somalia already has biometric ID, it’s a requirement to get the passport. Even my family in PL had to register for one just to do Hajj.

However, the other steps in your plan require big breaches of privacy that can be exploited by any future or present Somali leader for their gain.

Somalia simply doesn’t have the checks and balances for what you’re proposing.

You guys are right when it’s a government of checks and balances.

However, do you trust a Somali president with those sort of powers?

We all know that the next Somali president if given those capabilities would use it for their own personal gain.

I rather have that, than terrorists killing thousands of innocent Somalis. Making somalia lose billions of potential investment.
You guys trust racist western officials with all your privacy, but have issues with a fellow Somali. Damiir isku yeel adeer

Regardless, even if Somalia did this, do you seriously think the UN and the other IC groups that bankroll the government will allow it.

Even countries that use these methods will pull their funding of Somalia attempts this.

Somalia can’t even be trusted with heavy firearms let alone the ability to tap phones.
