President Abdi Went Trip By Land to the Gode, Shabelle Re...

Jijiga, Sep 15, 2013 – President Abdi, Abay Tsehaye and significant number of federal delegation escorted by huge armored vehicles went to travel by land through Jijiga to Gode. The delegate left Kebri Dehar this morning throughout the villages of Korahe region heading to Denan district where they reached at midday. Source of this information received Dhanan media in Somali text. None of the local and the national media across the country aired the travel of the President Abdi and the delegate with him. It may be kept quiet for a security reason. It may be suggestion, that they inspect progress made by the farming projects intended for nomadic resettlement at Shabelle region. President Abdi makes travel frequently to the abroad and in the locals by acting as a chauvinist of the Somali regional state for the federal Ethiopia. One month ago, he went long travel by crossing to the several regions where people in that places never met an official government, since Ethiopia surrendered the Ogaden region for seventy-two years. He returned travel recently from China to UAE, that the media did not publish the aim of the journeys.He was attended an event held at Sheraton Hotel, which called Kali ceremony honoured for the Somali culture, and the history made in Kali.

Ogaden Status

Ogaden, also know as Western Somali Region or Ogadenia is the eastern most region of Ethiopia’s nine ethnic divisions and borders Djibouti to the north, Kenya to the south west and Somalia to the north, east and south. The capital of the region has been Jijiga since 1994. Ogaden was part of the Muslim Ifat Sultanate in the 13th and beginning of the 14th centuries AD. The borders of the sultanate extended to the Shewa - Addis Ababa area. The region developed its own Adal kingdom from late 14th to the last quarter of the 19th century. There was an ongoing conflict between the Adal kingdom and the Christian Kingdom of Abyssinia throughout this time. During the first half of the 16th century, most Abyssinian territory came under the rule of Adal, when Imam Ahmed Gurey, the leader of Adal's Army, took control. The Ogaden Somali people were independent and powerful until colonial powers from overseas came to Africa and started arming the Abyssinian chiefs in the north, the present-day Ethiopia. Using the arms and expertise provided by the colonialists, the Abyssinians captured Harar in 1884 and started raiding Ogaden Somali villages in that area. The Ogaden Somalis vehemently resisted the encroachment of the Abyssinians and succeeded in halting their advance. Even though the Abyssinian military campaign to conquer the rest of the Somali territory failed, the colonial powers recognized its claim over the Ogaden Somali-land and signed treaties with them. From 1896 to 1948 Abyssinia (renaming itself Ethiopia) waged a constant war of conquest against the Somalis but failed in gaining any further foothold in the Ogaden. In 1935, Italy invaded Abyssinia and captured it along with the Ogaden and the territories of other nations in the area. Then the British defeated Italy in the Horn of Africa in 1941, and it administered the Ogaden for eight years until it transferred part of the Ogaden (Jigjiga area) to Ethiopia for the first time. The other parts were transferred in 1954 and 1956. Thus Ethiopia gained control over the Ogaden without the knowledge or the consent of the Ogaden Somali people. From then onwards, successive Ethiopian regimes mercilessly suppressed the Ogaden people and whenever the liberation movements seriously weakened and threatened Ethiopian colonialism, a foreign power directly intervened to re-establish the colonial rule over the Ogaden.  (Sep 17, 2013 | post #1)
