What would you do as leader of Somalia if you had the job? What economic system would you pick (Socialist, Capitalist, etc.). How would you deal with the immense issues of clanism, poverty and religious extremism? Give me your plan to fix Somalia.

Honestly interested in peoples ideal way forward for Somalia.
I got no idea but it's whole lot better now than before which is a good thing

When will Xaarmaajo stop fearing Abiy?
Interahamwe
VIP
1) Execute Aweys, Morgan, Siilaanyo, Faysal cali waraabe, Abu Mansur, Qeybdiid and all the warlords
2)Captured terrorists will never see prison in their life (hanging awaits them)
3) appoint somali bantu as pm
4) ban all socalled maamul goboleed and whoever disagrees will be seen as the true enemy of Somalia
5) Bringing the fight to Secessionists and Terrorists. Arming the nationalist factions in the north only if they are against federalism (no kastumo state).
6) demanding that ethiopia and kenya leaves Somalia. Djibouti is friendly nation, they can stay fighting alongside my mujahideen against the terrorists.
7) Telling all amisom to either pack ur bags or start fighting.
I dont want amisom soldier relaxing inside the barracks. They must fight or leave.
8)Cleansing the army. Any socalled militia posing as army while they harm the civilians. Prison will be their home.
9) Arresting corrupted figures
10) Paying the salaries of the mujahideen
Every money that we get, great share of it goes to the heroes.
11) the salaries of xildhibaano will drop by 40%. However they get one guard until further notice.
12) Again, any captured terrorist will be hanged immediately without bringing the case to court.
13) improving our infrastructure and rebuilding touristic spots.
14) I call upon all talented artistic somalis to invent new flag. Then all Somalis will vote on the suggested flags.
15)Motifying Somalia to The Democratic Republic of Somaal
16) Returning looted properties
17) the 77 veterans will get good care for their service.
18)Ban Khat & Niiko
19)Planting palms on our beaches to attract visitors. Also a nice boulevard where families and youth can come together for recreation.
20)Exporting our fruits, farmers gets well paid.
21)opening national wildparks in the jubbooyinka and Gedo.
Somali Safari is back Baby!

Some of my plans are within the war period and others during peace time.

I would do this if i had loyal army of 50k strong and a nation that supports my plans. Lets make The Democratic Republic of Somaal great again!

what would you replace 4.5 with?
 
Get rid of 4.5. That shit is poisonous as f*ck and the reason for all these dhoocil-like conflicts.

One man, one vote inshallah.
 
Wouldn't people just end up voting for their qabil candidate thus the majority clan will keep being in power?
Soomalis are daacad and qabiiliste all at once. Farmajo's presidency was even celebrated as far as Soomali galbeed under xabashi tyrony. I think we'll go with the best candidate. The reason why we're mad this qabiil got more ministers than the other qabiil is the 4.5.

I know I'd be cool if all the ministers turned out to be hawiye, but they'd have to justify meritocracy.
 

RasCanjero-

Self imposed exile
Force all Somalis into a single metropolitan area.

Either we sink or swim together. No gobolnimo bs.


Nationalise all land and lease arable land to commercial farmers.

Use the farms to produce feed for livestock while trying to urbanise pastoralist.

Tech for a basic industry and a strategy to train millions of Somalis has to be developed years before taking charge.

We should be able to produce 80% of what we need for a top level hdi score using 1950's tech.

Steam generators power plant, railways, mills, metal refinery and machining shops... All century old tech with the most recent updates 40 years ago.

Less reliance on FDIs and foreign currency for even necessary things like energy.

If we don't have oil or natural gas readily available; plant biomass fuels to generate electricity with.

If we require metals and minerals not available in Somalia; import from the region before adding value and export for foreign currency.

Only way to become self sufficient and build a future is through temporary isolationism until we develop our basic industries that could compete in the global economy.

For example; is there any point of building a solar panel factory when China could build it 5 times cheaper?

Anything we'll produce to export would already be manufactured elsewhere much more efficiently or cheaper through other means.

We can't expect an economic miracle like Japan and China in today's automated world.

Just build for ourselves temporarily while protecting our industries from global pressures.

In terms of governance...

National council of elders that have the ability to create a referendum on any law or decision by the executive leadership.

The rest of the government structure would depend on some factors I don't have much information on.

In terms of our foreign policy.

  • Border treaty with Ethiopia & Kenya in return for a FTA and free movement of people.
  • Security deal with US over our naval activity in the red sea and the gulf of Aden... i.e a naval military base in return for some space to develop our country.
  • Start building better relationships with African countries and improve our image after decades of bad PR.
  • Stick to standard international organisations and keep away from regional or global faction politics. A sneeze from any large power could set us back again.
 
Secure the sea routes and tax anyone who is trading on them; begin mining for natural resources; reform and impliment the education system (this is very important and is top of my to-do list); introduce social housing to support families. Invest heavily in tourism by building resorts; open technology fares to attract potenional business deals that will support technological advancement and economic development that will bring Somalia into the first world.

In order to fester national unity and to dispel petty clan rivalries, I would make it compulsory for boys and girls to join the national army after they graduate from secondary education (kind of like a youth league). They will learn discipline, develop on their physical and mental health by participating in sport and army training, and be encouraged to work together in pride so as to develop a sense of national unity and solidarity.

Also, I would build museums dedicated to Somali history and culture and begin archeological expeditions to unhearth long lost treasures. I would also usher in a cultural revolution amongst the women; they've been dressing like the nazgul from lord of the rings for far too long, it's time for our women to shine.

Make an alliance with Turkey, Russia, Qatar and China while distancing the country from Western Nations.

Build a strong army.

Declare total war on corruption.

Kick out Bantu Amisom monkeys and any foreign troops.

Launch massive anti-qabiil propaganda in the hopes of saving future generations.

Focus on the economy in order to make regional states beg to return under a centra authority.

Propose a deal to the various factions to join the newly found and honourable Somali Sultanate.

Launch a huge offensive against any region who refuses the Sultanate's offer :mjhaps:

Truthfulness so often goes with ruthlessness
I would kill and torture everyone that opposed me wallahi. I would instill the fear of God in their hearts. Compare to me, Siyaad Barre would seem like a ballroom ballerina. I wouldn’t target specific clan, I would punish everyone equally.

Then whip them into shape until they start to function like civilized society.

If it doesn't work ill start a full blown civil war ill encourage random groups to attack others to keep em occupied :lolbron:

With blood and Iron will we reach the fatherland
Establish Meritocratic system in government and revamp the political structure.
Talk SL out of independence, if not isolate them.
Hold a huge clan reconciliation conference, involving all clans who have grievances against past governments (this ties in with SL)
Wide range social reforms such as banning selling and consuming of Khat, building new houses schools hospitals and moving internal refugees to their rightful homes (once its safe) among others.
Ban clan discrimination in jobs, schools, businesses etc.
Destroy Al Shabaab myself, Somali generals and AMISOM seem very incompetent, they can't even beat peasants. Also try to lift arms embargo and increase naval power.
Try to get rid of toxic waste on our coasts and waters, then revive fishing industry.
In terms of economy, I will go for a mix of socialist and capitalist, like what the Scandinavian countries are doing. Mix between nationalising companies and privatisation (depends on the sector).
Massive revamp of infrastructure (rebuilding roads in the cities then go and build new roads in the countryside).
Get rid of AMISOM.
Tell Ethiopia, Kenya and all other countries that want to meddle in our internal affairs to f*ck OFF.
A complete revamp of the education system with a new national curriculum.
Once I can get the economy going introduce wide ranging social welfare reforms, helping out the most needy of our people.

Not in order of course. I may have forgotten other things too.


Unlikely goals:
Covertly increase Somali national sentiments in Djibouti, NFD and Ogaden, then once those reach boiling points, call for a peaceful referendum. Get African Union and UN involved, but DO NOT be seen as overly and overtly meddling in those regions so the cause for referendum gets international backing.
Don't know about NFD and Ogaden but you could buy out all of Djibouti's industries and economy then use that to have free movenment of people and use that new political/economic power to further link the two.
