Editorial: The government should deal with certain media sowing seeds of discord


THT- Learning from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow is an adage; means recalling your past mistakes prevents repetition and brightens your future.

To let the missteps palpated before not bring ways and means of foreboding the same are misplaced as far as harvesting experiences are concerned.

If you don’t learn about the anomalies that have happened in the world, you may be disadvantaged. The problem of the genocide in Rwanda when it was happening and its aftermath, the international community or the friendly governments, were watching, but no one took any action to prevent it.

As in the case of atrocities committed in the former Yugoslavia around the same time, the international community largely remained on the sidelines during the Rwandan genocide.

A United Nations Security Council vote in April 1994 led to the withdrawal of most of a U.N. peacekeeping operation (UNAMIR), created the previous fall to aid with governmental transition under the Arusha accord.

As reports of the genocide spread, the Security Council voted in mid-May to supply a more robust force, including more than 5,000 troops. By the time that force arrived in full, however, the genocide had been over for months.

Since Somaliland regained its independence, it has been enjoying peace and progress year after year, and subsequent administrations have had a role in its development.

Somaliland’s most important asset that has been blessed by God, and ahead of many recognized countries in the world, is the stability and security of the country and the order of the government system. It is truly a treasure to be preserved and worth sacrificing everything for.

Unpleasant events, which if not prevented can create danger, are appearing in some media, first of all, some TV stations are acting in a way that is beyond the ethics of the journalism profession.

When a person violates the ethics of the media profession, when legal action has to be taken against him/her, it is not possible to use the right of speech as an excuse, and is it a democracy? It’s not reasonable, it’s not what logic and law allow.

Prevention is better than cure so the government must take appropriate action against certain media stations that have crossed the fence of the media ethics, acting without borders.

They should solicit for foreign governments who act as ‘democracy and freedom of speech defenders’ to intervene when the law is applied to the media, because the protection of the stability and unity of the nation is the first duty of the government, anyone who harms it is an enemy who deserves to be held with an iron hand in any way.
