I forgot to add that Somalilanders need to also develop a fundraising committee or forum thats independent from the Education department and the government because if Somalilanders see results like this we are more than happy to support and contribute, we want to see the results. Im sure now more people than before will be happy to help because we see the 2015 goal, let's make history!!

Mr Abdi education is the back bone of every society, and I am very proud of the changes you and all Somalilanders have made to improve the education in the country. Even thought problems are there and some will remain there for time to come, I am very happy where we are today and your goals for the future, in particular your projection to improve literacy by 75% in the country by 2015 is very encouraging and postive indicator.

However a lot of the students who leave these institutions do not get jobs, and I understand you cant educat them and create jobs for them at the same time but there is few things that you can do, improve education and introduce work experience etc.

Also some of the students should be hire to educate the nomads if we are to meet the 2015 goal. The number of students who enrolled in school (primary) from 2008-2009 represent 6.5% of the total population. What percentage of the population fall in the primary school sector or age (6-13)? Atleast in Australia, primary school is compulsory if the child is age is 6-13.

Out of the 225, 853 students that were in primary school, how many made to High School?

Nevertheless amazing out come and the education department deserves credit, at least now even students can come to places like Somalilandpress and criticize the department hence they are literate (unless someone is reading this for them).

I also suggest that Somaliland organisations should develop a system, where Somalilanders in diaspora once a year visit schools in Somaliland as volunteers and offer classes, moral support or exchange ideas etc.

I agree with your Dr Elmi, I blame this sort of behaviour the old Somali regime because they did not encourage discussion forums, debates and literal views and thinking, with them every thing was my way my gun. But now that we have departed from that camp, we should at least practice to have open discussions and literal views without being rude, sensitive or personal. So I encourage Somalilanders not to behave like the old camp.

Getting bit sensitive and personal there, to be honest I was never expecting any better for someone who isnt even true to his heart for the sake of "puntlander4lies" :)

I cant figure it out whether it's childish or hatred. Nevertheless welcome with open arms.

Chill out bro, no need to get all emotional. Share the people with your views even if your from our neighbouring state, your entitle to have your opinion, however have your say without been negative and getting all sick because Berbera is about to get major boost.

Your not even from Somaliland bro, as our neighbour your welcome to have your say but don't lie to your self be claiming something your not just for the sake of 4lies. Nevertheless I see Somaliland getting an investment burns you, so much hate, none wrong with Somalilanders doing a thing for their country, millions are already doing that, I dont have to remain them of that, they are already champions in my eyes.

Wa iska hadashiin uun idinkoo wax ka ogeen aduunka, if someone is given a contract or brought on board in your minds your automatically ripped off well this is how the world runs, its run by multinational corporations, its called globalization, if your not happy to be part of it then stop asking for "international recognition", International recognition means to be part of the global market, and if Bollore comes on board we are part of the global market, we don't need recognition.

I totally agree with your Dr Elmi, way to go, people need to remain positive and give others a chance, we are in a moment of turbalance that we do not control nor manage, we have to grab opportunities as they come and keep knocking on doors. Ask your self, while Bollore proposed deal might not be 100% for the people, isnt it not better than the $37+ million it is annually bringing in now? At the current base ($37m p.a.) it would take Berbera to make the proposed $700m, more than 18 years?

How long is this $700 contract for? At the moment Berbera makes peanuts compared to the neighbouring ports such as Port of Djibouti, that Ethiopia pays $722.5 million annually which counts for 80-90% of the usage of the port. Its managed by Dubai World. The port of Mombasa managed by Hong Kong conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa is gettin a facelift worth $239.3 million - what chance does Berbera locals have?

Let's hope this contract is finalized and is benefited by the people of Somaliland and Ethiopia. They said too many times we got investment but we have yet to see any thing or anyone on the ground. Whatever happened to the $500-million so called power investment by German firms in Berbera that was also 'suppose' to restart Berbera's cement factory that was destroyed by retreating Siyad Bare forces in the 90s?

If this turns out to be another rumours no one is ever going to believe or trust Rayale and his camp again - I advice Somaliland sites and international news portals to ignore them.

Having said that, I hope the local people of Berbera understand they cant manage the port and compit with ports like Port of Djibouti, they need to make way for international firms and be open to the international market, it seems they are still behind.

This is why Berbera had became a ghost town. Can it be revived by France?

It's true Somaliland needs to be aware of Western thugs who claim to known how to do things, their main purpose is to create instability, let's have our election in our traditional way, let's not take aid from them.

They don't like Africans progressing, it kills them and will do any thing within their powers to derail. Some Africans are ignorant and think Westerns are their friends. I dont know why they brought back Interpeace.
