You in all probability don’t! Because you’re too busy studying about Cadaan (white) historical past as a substitute of your personal. But that’s okay, as a result of it’s not your fault, it’s the training system. But that’s one other publish for an additional time. Let me not even get began on that matter!
Anyways, once we’re speaking about Somali independence day. It’s essential to start out from the start.
SOMALI INDEPENDANCE DAY – THE SHORT VERSION
I understand how a few of you’re! You in all probability simply wish to know in regards to the brief model. What is Somali Independence day and why will we have fun it?
Somalia independence day celebrates the unification of the belief territory of Somalia. (the Italian a part of Somalia) and the state of Somaliland (British Somaliland) which got here collectively to type what is named the Somali Republic. More info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence_Day_(Somalia)
THE HISTORY OF SOMALIA
In the traditional world, Somalia was seen as an enormous commerce centre. In the horn of Africa, Somalia has the longest shoreline in mainland Africa. It stretches greater than 3,000 km alongside the Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Aden and the pink sea.
We actually might have had the chance to be the richest nation. If we weren’t colonised. Somalia has vacationer spots, the commerce, the most effective meals, the most effective tradition!
It’s really no marvel that we have been colonised, to be trustworthy with you. We have been approach too elite for these cadaans. They needed to discover a approach to management us. Oh, wait! Some of you in all probability don’t consider me, don’t fear, I’ve my proof proper right here.
That video above mainly explains how British folks couldn’t comprehend the truth that a black particular person had an intelligence equal to their very own. The Europeans again then have been very racist. You can in all probability inform this already from that video! Subhanallah, black folks weren’t even seen as human beings, to some we have been even seen as toys.
I wish to draw your consideration to one of many fundamental issues that I’ve taken out of this video. “The average Englishman has little sympathy for the Somali’s. […] He can not tolerate dark colour combined with intelligence in any way equal to his own”. This was the mindset of the British empire. When they have been fascinated about colonising us. They needed to management us in order that our intelligence didn’t exceed their very own.
The factor that annoys most Somali’s immediately is that we’re solely actually recognized for Somali pirates. When folks suppose Somalia, they suppose Captain Phillips. Don’t lie, I’m positive that film and plenty of others have made a few of you suppose, is he/she a pirate? I guarantee you, we don’t declare them and we’re under no circumstances affiliated with them!
How Somalia actually appears like…
When you search Somalia, that is what you see.
You see our folks as weak, struggling. If it wasn’t for corrupt governments and teams, it wouldn’t be this fashion.
This is how Somalia actually appears like.
These are a few of Somalia’s seashores and as you’ll be able to inform they’re lovely. We have the most important shoreline. Forget your holidays that you just’ve been on! Somalia has higher seashores. Just take a look at that magnificence! SAY MASHALLAH!
It’s unhappy as a result of Somalia has the potential to be the best vacation resort. I imply simply take a look at our meals. Doesn’t it style wonderful?! But sadly, terrorist teams and and so on have made Somalia unsafe for many who wish to journey there.
In 1869, the Suez Canal opened making Somalia a really wanted place for its strategic areas.
We can solely think about what the West is pondering proper now. In different phrases, this primarily supplied them with much more ardour and encouragement to wish to colonise Somalia. Which is precisely what they managed to do…
THE COLONIZING OF SOMALIA
In, 1884 the US and 13 different European nations met up in Berlin. What did they wish to do? What was their goal?
Their goal was to divide the African continent between them. I don’t know what it’s in regards to the west, however they LOVE to divide African folks. They divided Somalia into three provinces. British Somalia, Italian Somalia and French Somalia. The Somali area of Ogaden was taken by the Ethiopian empire and the Northern Frontier District by Kenya.
The loopy factor about Somalia is that we’re all the time being attacked. People are all the time coming for us for our intelligence! Somalia has both been fought over or has had international powers intervening in a roundabout way.
British Somalia and Italian Somalia gained independence! British Somalia is now referred to as Somaliland!
In 1960, British Somalia and Italian Somalia have been lastly given independence! But French Somalia weirdly voted to remain underneath the french rule, despite the fact that there have been accusations of poll-rigging.
French Somalia Gained Independence! Now referred to as Djibouti!
In 1997, French Somalia lastly gained independence and have become Djibouti!
On the first of January 1960, “British Somalia and Italian Somalia” united to create larger Somalia. Somali’s then elected Aden Abdulla Uthman as their president. He dominated efficiently as the primary president of united Somalia for 7 years.
ABDIRASHID ALI SHARMARKE
He then was succeeded in a peaceable election by Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke. After so lengthy of being colonised, Somalia lastly had peace and stability. This earned Somalia the identify, the Switzerland of Africa.
MUKHTAR MOHAMED HUSSEIN
As you may already know, this peace that we had so lengthy been ready for didn’t final so long as we hoped. Sharmarke dominated for two years. He was then assassinated by his personal bodyguard on the 15th October 1969.
He was then succeeded by prime minister Mukhtar Mohamed Hussein. But the violence doesn’t finish there…
GENERAL SIAD BARRE
Just 6 days, solely 6 days after being succeeded, he was overthrown in a army coup! This army coup was led by General Siad Barre. He would then go on to rule Somalia for the following twenty years.
In conclusion, on the subject of General Siad Barre and Somalia proper now. There’s so much that occurred. For that motive, I will probably be making an entire separate publish (half two) on the historical past of Somalia.
