Gabiley is deserted by her children
Brother Adam, I read your article about Gabiley, and being hailed from Gabiley, hundred percent I agree
with you that Gabiley ended up hand outs of the first lady. Being a Gabilean (reer Gabiley) I'm
concerning about the developmental stagnation of Gabiley and creativity bankruptcy of local
Gabiley is number two just behind Berbera in revenues. Its problem is all its revenues are channelled to
Hargeisa by vision-less, corruptive and lackey locals(Guulwadayaal) so-called politicians.
Gabiley is a sleepy giant, if it wakes up only God knows what a tremendous striking development it will
achieve in a short period of time.
Mr. Adam, Gabiley has one long standing chronic problem, her young, educated, vibrant and energetic
offspring frequently moves out either to Hargeisa or elsewhere, leaving Gabiley behind with its old
uneducated population. To develop our home town every Somalilander, hailing from Gabiley should go back
to Gabiley ( as Awdalites do in Borama) and contribute a thing or two.
One more point, Gabiley should be recognized as a region (GOBOL) by her people. We the people of Gabiley
should announce Gabiley as "GOBOLKA GABILEY". From now on wards I recognize Gabiley as a region, Tog
Wajaale, Allaybadey, Arabsiyo and [ X.....] are districts. I NOT only wish but I demand all like minded,
serious Gabileans to to do the same thing. For Gabiley has the population, local resources to nourish
and maintain this status. In Somaliland's first presidential vote, Gabiley beat Sahil, Sanaag and Sool
in one-man one vote voting procedure. Waiting somebody else to recognize Gabiley as a region is a
weakness and insult in my opinion. Somaliland recognized by herself no other international entity
recognized her as an independent country yet in the last fourteen years. Gabileans should do the same
When we Gabileans recognize Gabiley as a region then sixty-five percent or more of her revenues should
be allotted to development and administration purposes. NO MORE HAND OUTS, WHO WISHES TO BE A LOSER.
