Some days back I accidentally pumped into Mrs. Moha Farah Jire in
Hargeisa, the last time I had physically seen her was six years ago. This
young energetic and visionary lady was teeming with joy.
She said “All praise and thanks are to Allah the almighty all powerful. I
have just returned to the country thanks to an invitation by the Ethiopian
consulate in Somaliland which has honored me to be their guest. I shall
forever been indebted to the Ethiopia envoy to Somaliland Mr.Berhe Tesfay
and the consulate staff. The consular general welcomed me heartedly and I
thank him for improving the brotherly relationship between Somaliland and
Ethiopia which has improved tremendously as a result of consular Berhe
Dr. Moha was also received a warm reception in Djibouti whereby the
Djibouti ambassador to Somalia Dr.Aden Belelo who is also her husband
honored her. Present in the Djibouti ceremony was the Ethiopian ambassador
to Djibouti Mr.Ato Fitamo Shamebo, a Djiboutian legislator Hon.Ali Abdi
Farah and prominent Djiboutian businessman Mr.Mohammud Maril and other
Ethiopians diplomats honored her.
Dr. Moha was very proud to be in the history spotlight following the
historic meeting between Ethiopia new Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and his
Eritrean counterpart Isaias Afwerki after two decades of separation.
“I send my congratulations to the two brotherly people of Ethiopia and
Eritrea for burying the hatchet and working together again. People are
happy the route the two leaders have taken to reconnect again since
conflict blocks every goodwill. Undoubtedly the Eritrean leader arrival to
Addis Ababa ushers a new era, Mr. Afwerki was warmly welcomed by PM Abiy
Ahmed, luckily I was there to witness the history in the making.” Dr.Moha
“I send my ardent congratulation to the Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Abiy
Ahmed for his speedy influence in the region and wish him well in his
future endavors.” Dr. Moha added.
Dr.Moha started her career as a journalist for Somaliland National
Television which saw her display an influential character that spurred her
on to the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa since then she has
never looked back.
She praised Somaliland and Ethiopia for forging a new perspective in
relationship; since their resurgence. She went on to say that Ethiopia and
Somaliland share a good cross border relationship due to similarity of
culture of the two countries.
“I send my congratulations to the president elect of Somaliland H.E Musa
Bihi Abdi. I urge his cabinet to foster closer cooperation with their
Ethiopian counterparts. I also inform Somaliland students to capitalize on
the more than 100 scholarship the government of Ethiopia giving Somaliland.”
“On the other hand I humbly ask the president of Somaliland to make sure
that Ethiopia/Somaliland relationship endures the taste of time.”
“Mr. President our neighbor Ethiopia should never be ignored and every
opportunity should grasped by both hands to further our special
relationship.” Mrs.Moha said.
“Moha is back teeming with energy.” a senior Ethiopian diplomat based in
Addis Ababa said. “She is dynamic and became the star of the continent with
her blend of unique quality of human nature to persevere and not get
discouraged or demoralized by circumstances. Indeed she is a tough lady who
can withstand the turmoil of the capital of Africa Politics, Addis Ababa.”
Professor Moha revealed that she will be travelling around the region to
gauge what has transpired during the five years she was away.
“I’m Very grateful to Ethiopia which invested on my education and today I’m
useful to the whole continent of Africa which the expertise I have acquired
through my education will become of handy.” Moha reckoned.
