QATAR (Somalilandsun) – A MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO DO NOT AGREE WITH ME: We are building a country that has many enemies, and what we need is cohesion and not otherwise.
Good day my fellow citizens. I would like to highlight the importance of the word patriot & when your country needs everything you can offer.
I wonder and noticed, since the current ruling party came to power and even during the campaign, before the election, two websites have engaged unethical propaganda and hate which we people of Somaliland, have not seen in recent history of our country.
Well, the reason, is by in-large unknown, as far as I know, and needs to be addressed wisely. We don’t need to gag the press, but everything has a limit, and in this case, the people of this country has to confront the menace of these two websites. Internationally, the real journalist undertake investigative journalism and sometime expose a serious issues, which has national dimensions, and I support that, but to wake up in the morning to just look who I should demonize today, and write untrue and killing speculation about, is something humanly bad and should be punished those who engage this kind of un-journalistic publications.
Why these two website are doing this in the first place and what is the reason behind the digging of these dirt, un-patriotic, and naked of real truth articles, are published continuously, against our foreign minister, the first lady, Hersi and even the President? In the world we live in, this kind of killing phenomena is not allowed, but we the people of Somaliland are mixing democracy with bias information that these people entertain us.
In his last posting, the editor of Halbeegnews, published a document that he said, he is received from an employee of the Somaliland National Bank implicating the current foreign minister [http://halbeegnews.net/?p=14607]. If these documents are true and genuine, they should have landed in the hands of the National Prosecutor’s office, who is responsible to bring case against the perpetrator, but it’s unwise and danger to put a website that the enemy of Somaliland, and the international community reads. In this case, the website has condemned the minister before a court of law gives his verdict. This is a crime in pig way, but it seems the so-called editor is ignorant.
You cannot simply satisfy your ego and write whatever you want to write, while ignoring that you will be accountable to this information that you are divulging with no prove whatsoever. This action says to me that the action of the editor is driven by animosity, that majority of our people do not know or understand why. If the current government tolerates the disclosures of such magnitude, then there is something wrong somewhere! otherwise there must an action to check and prosecute those responsible in either side.
I personally do not know the two editors of this website, and I have nothing against them, but do not agree the way they behave when it comes to Somaliland. A patriot in the real sense, should differentiate between writing true stories and witch-hunt of a certain person or persons continuously.
A MESSAGE TO THOSE WHO DO NOT AGREE WITH ME: We are building a country that has many enemies, and what we need is cohesion and not otherwise.
