The representatives of the International community in Somalia are believed to be responsible for the multiple delays of parliamentary and presidential elections in Somalia because they have the power and means to hold parliamentary and presidential elections on time for being in charge of the country and for investing billions of dollars in Somalia to keep it stable, democratic and make peaceful transfer of power on time using their military wing, AMISOM, and donors paid-Somali troops.
Now, the country is at the brink of civil war for delayed, bribed, corrupt parliamentary elections that could lead to fraudulent presidential election stolen for the former president of Somalia,Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, or another attempt for unlawful presidential term extension (like the one on April 25, 2021). Both cases could ignite civil war, particularly in the capital, Mogadishu.
Some people believe that the long-time USA Ambassador in Somalia, Ambassador Donald Yamamoto, long-time UN Representative in Somalia, Mr. James Swan, and long-time African Union Representative, Mr. Francisco Madeira, have close relationship with the former President of Somalia, Mr. Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, and that is why he is still in the presidential mansion, Villa Somalia, still ruling the country without any mandate granted to him after his presidential term expired on February 8, 2021.
The acting Prime Minister, Mohamed Hussein Roble, is also accused of slowing the election process in Somalia for personal reasons and gradually eliminating the international criminal case of Ikraan Tahlil after he entered agreement with ex-president, Farmajo, after he returned from Qatar.
Ex-president of Somalia, Mr. Farmajo is the least popular presidential candidate for president in Somalia for having close relationship and collusion with the war crimes suspects, PM Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia and Isaias Afwerki of Eritrea in the Tigray War. if he returns to office with fraudulent, stolen election, Somalia will be another Ethiopia in the Horn of Africa.
