The people of Djibouti are yearning for immediate change and have great endurance to carry out every possibility to over throw the totalitarian dictator and is a national obligation to every Djiboutian and in particular every Afar and Issa.
Everything is from something and is related to everything else. The totalitarian dictatorship governance which is the mother of the injustice, inequality and all the problems prevailing in the Everything country that makes it assume the nation and the government as if it is his patrimonial cynic property which he manipulates as he pleases and does everything reckless about the people and about consequences have had resulted from the long silence and non-reaction of the community against his irresponsible ,nepotism governance.
The reason for the struggle of the independent was not to substitute the colonial governor with a local one. But it has been to establish a frame work for national responsibility, equality and justice that could enable the community to recognize and solve their problems, the problems of the country and meet their national obligations, through dialogue based on mutual consultations and to have an effective, responsible and accountable government that respects the constitution and uses it power as entrusted by the community.
Things do not always run or happen as hoped and expected. The hope and the expectation of the community has not happened as forecasted. It has became the substitution of the colonial governor to a local except the esteemed honorable flag which the leader entrusted was made not to materialize the independent the flag stands for the betterment of the community by the actual totalitarian dictator IOG who as a close relative and a president behind the curtain lead the governance to the wrong way .
We have been witnessing the dictatorial way ad system IOG has been manipulating the government which has grown worst since he has been made to illegally jump to the power.
The government’s failure to do its first duty which has been to protect the citizens which it instead deteriorate and become the perpetrator of arbitrary violence against the citizens.
The non- existence of a ground to base the call for justice which it has made subjective, selective and in favor of him and all that have families connections and utility status relations.
The parliamentarians who have been to let their voices to be heard by the community since parliament is the highest and biggest place to deliberate on all the national issues are sitting idle and cannot express their views and opinions except to adopt what is dictated and instructed by the dictator. Who elected and nominated them.
How it bend the executive, the legislative and the judiciary, whichever way it wants to satisfy its whims by ignoring the country’s constitution and the constitutional power and right of the executives, legislatively and Judiciary.
The executives, the legislatives, the judiciary, the authorities, the officials are praising and complimenting IOG and wife in the face of the worst blatant political suppressions.
The pervasive injustice, inequality, corruption, extreme poverty, unemployment, tribalism at the lowest stage, illiteracy, absence of proper health care, oppressions, undisciplined budget, weak and dormant institutions and the worst governance on earth, yet placing itself above the community and the nation, and preaching to the citizens to warship him, in the believe that the community and the nation cannot survive without him.
The breach of his oath and pledge to the constitution and the contract between him and the community for the two terms.
The ignoring and refuting, the international call and consensus that African leaders must respect the constitution of their countries and refrain to change and amend the constitution to prolong their office term in order to avoid civil unrest and enhance stability peace and development.
The dishonoring of our cultural democratic system, its strength and faith in its integrity that make the country no man’s land.
The redundant politics of deception, hatred, despair and force.
The reason why the Djiboutian people has not reacted and revolted on time against the autocratic governance of IOG has resulted from the followings.
As inherited from the colonial governance which the local prime minister was assumed and acted as a typical representative of a tribe that caused the so called tribal name given earlier to the first national government due to its president, has initiated the protection and the promotion of the government through the believe of the abstract name of the tribe that made the tribe reckless about the system of governance except the existence of the name which it used to say *No matter whatever the government does or did, the name is enough*.
This was an emotional mistake committed by the Issas if there has been anything granting that the leader should strictly abide to the system and structure of the Issas it would have been good to protect and support the name and would have avoided the prevailing problem but failure to recognize that has probed the totalitarian dictatorship
The low tribal vision that has resulted from the lack of knowledge about the bad consequences of a tribal governance has not lasted long as it is learned and hated later times.
2. Ethiopia and Somalia are big countries and those dictators were hardly able to control and impoverish the people scattered through the cities where as in Djibouti, it is only the Djibouti city where there are employments and the other activities to survive which are all under the full control and monopoly of the totalitarian dictator. Beside this, the Djiboutian community has not got the sympathetic support and backing of its neighboring communities which the fronts that ousted the dictators of Ethiopia and Somalia got from their neighbors’.
3. The tribal civil war that torn Somalia which has resulted from the tribal governance of the ousted autocratic dictator of Somalia, who was the main teacher and trainer of the actual autocratic dictator, has became an assumed fearing and discouraging example in which IOG and his gangsters raise regularly to the people beside the false assumption that IOG is the feeder of the people whom without IOG there will be no life in Djibouti as if IOG is the creator of the people, has made the Djiboutian community to fear about the consequences of public revolt against its totalitarian dictatorship , might have induced a civil war and has used to say “A worst government is better than without government.
There is no doubt that the Totalitarian dictator and his corrupted gangsters have used to terrorize the people through fear by simply pointing as an example to the civil war going on in Somalia for the last 20 years and strongly used to stress by impressing that the consequences of public uprising will no doubt transform to a civil war that initiates the complete destruction of the country and since Djibouti is a small country with only Djibouti city the people would fall in the worst agony compared to the agony the people of Somalia has fallen.
In addition to these false implication, the totalitarian dictator and its gangsters used to mislead the community by raising and making them recall about the colonial dominations and the severe struggle for the independent of the country and repeatedly stress about to protect the independent that enabled us live in peace otherwise together will lose our freedom and integrity.
Regardless of the propaganda of the falling totalitarian dictator who is already guilt conscious and without good conscience, we are all aware yesterday when we were more weak and less populated with no social, economic and political background and the cold war had supported and backed the colonial and dictatorial governments how our community as a whole mother, father and youths had politically struggled and achieved the independent of the country from the mightier government of the colonial because of the motivations and mobilizations carried out by the political parties and by the dedication and devotion of the youths.
We are aware, during the struggle for independent, the effective and predictable collaboration among the political parties and the youths that made all the citizens of the country male, female, young and old hold up together the banner of moral equality is now more effective than ever before
The way a leader acts and uses its power to play constructive or destructive role depends on the process by which a person comes to power which determines the rules of the game by which it governs.
We all know that IOG has not come to the power by the will and demand of the community neither through the natural and legal process and has not climbed even the ladder according to the hierarchy within the RPP.
There is nothing good to expect from such a so called leader who due to selfish grudge to the community uses his power to play destructive roles based on coercive power and the politics of hatred to govern the people by hunger. The rules of its game are revenge, harassment, and the perpetuated governance of injustice.
On the other hand a local security chief whose duty has been intimidating and terrorizing the citizens, who kidnapped the wife of a honorable leader and made his wife, who never ashamed doing whatever it wanted and never respected the common doctrines of the religions has illegally governed the country upon the silence of the community.
The community already knew that Mr. 10G will not serve the nation and community faith fully and with integrity but have been watching and waiting the end of its anti community assumptions, in the believe that mankind has never prospered by fraud, corruption, repression, violent abuse of power and wrong doings, but only though justice and fair dealings.
Fortunately, the community has realized that the end of its target has become waging relentless war against justice and fair dealing by acting vice versa. Beside placing itself above the community and every other things and pursuing family governance, it is found endangering nativities natural citizenship and making the community to live without dignity in the native land.
There is no on earth any conscious community that watches without revolting if half of what is happening in Djibouti have happened in their country. The silence and the non- reaction of the community, which the big powers and the neighboring democratic countries account as an acceptance to the bitter irony of the totalitarian dictator, is totally a mistake and wrong assumption.
Any community under a totalitarian dictatorship governance is a community in a prison where every prisoners who wants, tends or speaks about the conditions and rights of the prisoners people is imprisoned in a particular cell where it is severely tortured, harassed, eliminated or deported to unknown place or escapes from the prison to foreign countries until one gives up and prostrates to the autocratic dictator or to his wife or to a close relative of the house.
The Djiboutian communities are in the worst prison and are under the worst conditions but the democratic countries of the world and the democratic countries in the region have not turned their ears and attention to the people because of his false superficial propaganda and political duplicity.
As we all know that the Djibouti country is only the Djibouti city since there is no economic and social development schemes aimed to develop and create job opportunities to the people in the districts ,Djibouti city which is less than half of Addis Ababa city is the place where the have mentioned above, common to every prison, there are prisoner’s gangsters, who seem to represent the prisoners cache the problems intermediate and initiate the inhuman acts against the prisoners and in the meantime praise and honor the regime in the name of the prisoners in order to promote and protect their selfish interest at the cost of their compatriots. The Djiboutian community are who strongly threatened by these gangsters would have outrageously and violently erupted like a strong active volcano and would have ended the totalitarian dictatorship governance as the dictatorial governments of Ethiopia and Somalia were ended.
So as far as, the non-respect of nativities and natural citizenship means ending the claim of the home land, and living without dignity has no meaning and is intolerable, it is national obligation to react against its acts and wage a relentless war for justice in order to destroy the injustice, protect nativities and natural citizenship.
The patience and tolerance of watching and waiting have ended, thus the yearning for justice to achieve equality and the remedy to the persistent problems of the dictator’s Oath breaking and violation of the spirit and the existence of the constitution show that the time is ripe for a revolution a mass revolution against the destructive governance and its illicit activities.
Everything has a time and must wait its time. Now it is not the time to talk about presidential elections, it is time to talk about change, a change to safe the nation thus any politician that talks about elections is one that hankers after self-interest and abuse of power to satisfy its greed’s at the expense of the country and its compatriots, and should be considered dangerous, enemy and traitor.
Furthermore, we are witnessing that his destructive role shadows his followers, Civil and military, who are all afraid what will happen to them if don’t do what they are told to do. They fear that something worse is going to happen them as the late general Yacin Yabe and Mr. Abdurrahman M.M Boreh (the most closest and most loved), if they don’t comply. So out of fear potential adverse consequences are ripe to result.
What is prevailing in our small country is a replica of the governance systems which have had introduced the military coups, the instability, the public unrest and the civil wars that handicapped developments and impoverished the African community that have had resulted from the destructive governance of such so called leaders like IOG, who for money and power warship his own passions, impulses, desires and do everything to prolong its reign without limit until it makes him to face its dooms day publically.
Without going far ,we know what has happened to many dictators that were mightier and stronger than 10 G are enough to be recalled as an example, such as the military dictators of Ethiopia and Somalia, and the so called democratically elected leaders of Egypt and Tunisia and how their autocratic governments has ended within days by the people .
But it is something common to all dictators not to see what have happened to similar dictators and never take care not to place themselves above the law and the people until they face their doomsday which became to late to regret their vision and opinion about the people.
It is known most of the successful democracies emerge from some sort of historical process as civil wars, revolutions and etc. we know the USA emerged out from a devastating civil war in the 1800s others like France, Germany, Japan etc also experienced devastating revolutions, wars and emerged from monarchy and dictator ships.
In Africa Most of the democratic countries like Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Liberia, South Africa etc. have emerged from different types of dictatorship governance, while countries like Kenya which Daniel Arab Moi stayed on power for a long time has not changed or amended the constitution of the country.
Experience shows us parties that stay on power over 20 years which itself is too long damage and deteriorate the economic, social and liberty and there is no a living community or society that could rely on such a deadly old mannered dictatorial system of governance for more than a term not even two.
While in Djibouti the RPP stays over 33 years on the power and has totally transformed the nation to a personal property. President Jaque, Chirac said “Democracy in Africa is a luxury” and that is also true in governance.
In Djibouti, the governance is not only a luxury but is also a special theatre where the so – called actor displays its feeling, passions and desires and each of the theatre participants has no a particular role to play in the theater except to display parts and acts that strongly satisfy, please and honor the so-called actor.
We always see and listen from the radio and TV, every person men or woman, minister and government official at any position or not, that is allowed to speak or interviewed at any occasion begins and ends its speech-*grace to the excellent guidance, views and vision of H.E 10G the lions lion’ or the first lady calling it “the ladies lady, the mothers mother ” . it is a typical system and manner of the communist dictators such as the so called Maoist and Leninist slogan which IOG manifests a disguised democracy under an autocratic dictatorial government at this millennium, and globalization age which such systems and believes are unacceptable and unwatchable
The few citizens that inter into the politics with a desire to serve the community and a vision to improve the nation face heinous harassment, imprisonment, unemployment, intimidation, water and electricity cut off which enabled the selfish greedy, the opportunists and all those affected by the tribal complex inferiority the totalitarian dictator exercised and all the senseless ones who as he wanted attached themselves to the dictator in order to protect their interests and hanker after money and power to satisfy their selfish greed at the expense of their country and their community for whom they don’t care and have no mercy and respect, but will no doubt regret soon if they fail to realize the reality and the eternal truth.
The democratic countries mentioned above are both aware about the duplicity and chameleon attitude of the dictator and what is happening in Djibouti, yet most of them seem unwilling to end the communist slogan and force it comply with the two term periods specified in the constitution, resign and vacant the position for the community.
J.F Kennedy said “If a society cannot save the many that are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich”. This implies if these democratic superpowers fail to protect the constitution of one of the smallest nation on the globe in order to forge democracy. How democracy could be enforced in the bigger and multi-ethnics countries existing in Africa and in the world.
The USA president Barrack Obama and his predecessor G.W Bush both said “African presidents should refrain staying on power more than two terms and will not accept any African leader who want to stay on power more than two terms period by amending or changing the constitution.
Whereas now, we are witnessing its opposite. We see some officials from democratic countries talking about democracy, while the constitution is breached.
These also imply as if the USA and other democratic countries are saying “A devil we know is better than a saint we don’t know” and that is why they are not acting in the right way which would have caused the dictator resign and abide to the two term periods specified in the country’s constitution”
The people want democracy since it is essential to have a viable political system of governance and a legitimate leader, but what is crucial is the credibility in itself.
The people of Djibouti has been for 34 years imprisoned by a totalitarian dictator and his wife with family gangsters who are much worst from Ben Ali and his Leila and colleagues who without faith mislead the democratic countries with duplicity.
Jimmy Carter has said * Democracy is like the experience of life itself, always changing infinite in its variety, sometimes turbulent and all the more valuable for having been tested by diversity. Unfortunately this has became impossible under the totalitarian dictator who make the country its personal property and the people its slaves by force and in the meantime imports tens of thousands from Somalia whom it calls loyal slaves who could fill the place of the Djiboutian.
Therefore before democracy, Djibouti needs democratization to be put in place in order to outline the probable courses of action that would probably take the people to democracy. As every people Djibouti people need the proper functioning of democracy in the sense of leadership and representation but it has become impossible to achieve under the totalitarian dictator who have all earthy problems solved so that he will turn to the Red Planet.
Now the challenge of democratizing the country in order to build democratic and responsible government need the totalitarian dictator to respect the constitution, respect the international call and consensus on the two terms, respect its oath and pledge to the constitution and to the people, stop the importation of the terrorists it aimed to subjugate the people, stop for campaigning for the illegal third term candidacy and step down in order to enable his children and family members live with the people in peace without enmity and switch off the flaming fire that by no means would lead its doomsday.
We believe the democratic countries particularly the U.S.A., FRANCE and other EU members and the FDRE should stand beside the people and support their struggle to have the answer of their questions and demands.
We believe without democracy there will be no peace and thus believe the victory of the people and justice to triumph over everything is always inevitable and so is to be achieved soon.
Is it a leader he who nominates his fresh graduate daughter to its economic advisor and the head of the country’s economy while there are thousands of senior post graduates who are idle and depressed in the country. Such a person is irresponsible and is not a leader accepted by the community but is a so called leader who thinks will stay on the power by force.
We say no and every conscious says no.
