It was Farmaaja's boast that his dictatorial reign would last for twenty years. Instead, it lasted only for thirteen days, 12 - 25 April 2021. The dictatorship hit a brick wall on that fateful day of April 25th when all attempts to violently subjugate the regime's political opponents in Mogadishu were totally defeated.
Following the illegal extension at the Lower House of Parliament on 12 April 2021, this campaign called for the creation of a national resistance movement in the diaspora to complement the gathering clouds of internal resistance and external pressure against Farmaaja's power grab.
The creation of a new nonviolent national resistance against the recently installed Farmaajo dictatorship to complement the gathering internal resistance forces and external pressure1 is in order. The objective of this nonviolent action will be to undermine the dictatorship, while winning over the general population, with the end goal of removing it from power.
Farmaaja's modus operandi is based solely on the use of three conscious (or possibly subconscious) mental processes: aggression, coercion and propaganda. These were the bread and butter of the late dictator Siyad Barre's regime which Mr. Farmaajo very much identifies with.
There have been two transitions of power which have passed off in relative peace in Somalia since 2012. What is different this time is that we have Farmaajo, an unprincipled and savage spoiler seeking total power through the barrel of a gun. The vicious attack in the pre-recorded video by the loud-mouthed and uncouth propaganda minister on the heroic stand taken by the leaders of Puntland and Jubbaland (Presidents Said Abdullahi Deni and Ahmed Mohamed Islam 'Madoobe') yesterday represents Farmaaja's hard, roguish character.
