Open Letter to the President of Somali Regional State
(FG: Shaqsiga Hoos Ku Saxeexan ayay Gaar u Tahay)
Dear Mr. President
It’s completely beyond the shadow of no doubt that your government is creating mess and assaulting Degodia clan in Liban zone, as you may aware that you attempted to give anew woreda to Marehan (Dekasuftu) because you believe Marehan are relatively closure to you or perhaps you have other hiden agendas that is well known to you. Just to give you a small background, Marahen are well known in Somali regional state of Ethiopia and they reside in Southern part of Warder such as Ilanle, Eldibir, Elbahay and Nefkuiliye kebeles of Warder Woreda and also whole southern Geladi kebeles like Yamarugley, Urmadag, Ramale, Qorofweyn, Qorof yare and Duban kebeles of Geladi woreda. In Shilabo district they reside in Lasoano and Fadigradle kebeles so many questions what was the motive behind when you decided to give Marehan a new Woreda in Filtu district?
Recently you met with the Degodia elders where you promised a lot of things, however, all in vain. To date nothing has materialized from your promise and the tension you created is rebuilding up. To make the situation worse, you give command to arrest key Dagodia customary leaders, including the Wabar (The Dagodia King) and members of his Filtu and Dollo Ado but your actions to marginalize Degodia tribe will only fuel the fire and increase the insecurity in the triangle border of Ethiopia.
The Parliament Speaker, who is from the Garre clan and who is the master mind of the existing land dispute is abusing his powers by providing advantage to his own clan.
Therefore, Mr. President, you are the president of Somali regional state and the solutions to these matters are in your hand. We request you to take an urgent action and resume the known peaceful Liban zone that you have destroyed since you come to the power.
Yours Obedient Citizen
