Academician Ms. Rooda Mohamud Karaani spoke about the importance recent UK elections to the people and the nation of Somaliland.

She observed that most of the House of Commons MPs in the cross-parties Friends o Somaliland forum have retained their constituent seats and have been re-elected.

Of note, she pointed Steven Doughty who has just been appointed the State minister for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development affairs who have retained his Cardiff South and Penarth constituency.

So, too, has the high profile member of the Friends of Somaliland caucus Gavin Williamson formerly representing South Staffordshire, has just won the Stone, Wyrley and Penkridge constituency seat. Others include Rushanara Ali of Bethnel Green and Stepney constituency (formerly Bethnel Green and Bow), Barry Gardiner of Brent, Steve tower of Cardiff, to mention but a few, hence scores of other new ones who subscribe to the cause.

Ms. Rooda believes that it is good riddance, given the triumphs of the members of the forum, the flames of the candles in their continuous efforts to see justice prevail in Somaliland’s cause will continue to burn.

She gave a recap of recent tumultuous UK local internal politics that saw five primers smoothly change the buttons of leadership before their general elections for unbelievable short space of time following lacks of confidence in subsequent administrations of the day; explaining how their political party administration operate.

Miss Rooda decried the fact that since the governments of Somaliland and Ethiopia signed an MoU accord to chart the future of their bilateral ties and take the cooperation to an even higher notch, the states of Somalia and Djibouti have to their chagrin ran berserk and amok depicting animosities not seen for the past three decades.
