Medeshi has written several articles in the last few years complaining about the indifference of the consecutive Somaliland governments towards the region. In addition to the road that links between Burao and Erigavo , the region needs improvement in  the health services ,  Education facilities and other infra structure projects.
Both Erigavo Hospital and Dayaha boarding school were built by the British in the 1950s. No improvements had been  made to the facilities since its construction therefore,  making it worn down by time and weather as it degraded gradually to ruins.
