After all, the international community are bombarded with horrifying images of the Horn of Africa, and in particular from our neighbour in the south. It is worth reminding people that Somaliland is an oasis of peace, stability and development in the region.

The rains this year have been abundant and the soil is rich. These are the ranges in Awdal known as “Seeraha” and across the nation similar scenes are evident, Daallo, Sheekh, Gacan Libaax, Golis etc. thanks to the blessing of Allaahu Subxaana Wa Tacaal, the land is filled with milk and honey this year.
