Somaliland: Kulmiye top brass woo Professor Samatar to join ranks

Professor Ahmed Ismail Samatar spoke to thousands of college students at the Red Sea Culture center in Hargeisa that the Chairman of the ruling Party, Kulmiye, Musa Behi Abdi, and his top lieutenants attended.

The Center’s courtyard here the lecture was to be delivered was filled to capacity long before the appointed hour.

Professor Samatar, during the presentation, spoke at length of the Somali culture and how important it was for upcoming generations to preserve its more positive sides as that have proven to be the mainstay of coexistence, courtesy, and respect to humanity evident in present day society.

The presence of Kulmiye’s Chairman, Mr. Behi, First Deputy Chairman, Mohamed Kahin, and the Secretary General of the Party, Hassan Saeed Yussuf, and other top-ranking party officials indicated in what light the party saw Mr. Samatar.

As it was a tribute to the academician-turned- politician, the attendance of Kulmiye top brass of the lecture, it was seen, by observers, that it was a signal to all that the Party wanted the Professor to join its ranks. As much has been said in s many words by the Chairman himself earlier.

It was rumored that Professor Samatar had his eyes on Waddani

The conspicuous absence of Waddani officials, however, in last night’s event did not escape the prof and participants of the event.

Professor, for the first time, declared upon return to Somaliland earlier during the week, that he was now ready to join one of the three national political parties: Kulmiye, Waddani, Ucid.
