Sanaag elders call for secession from Somaliland

(Medeshi)- The chief Aqils , clan elders , Sultans and traditional leaders of Sanaag - the largest region of Somaliland - have called in a televised interview for secession from Somaliland.

The people of Sanaag, represented by the elders who spoke to OWN last week have expressed their grievances and the persistent nepotism , tribalistic favourism and the disproportionate displacement of the ethnic people of the region.


They have called in their statement as could clearly be heard in this video that unless Hargeisa based administration addresses the issue of inequalities in the region, then Sanaag may have no option but to form its own government.
Tensions seem to be rising in both Awdal and Sanaag due to mismanagement by the current Kulmiye government which has been accused by not only Sanaag , but by Gebiley , Awdal , Sool and Saahil ..
Elections in Somaliland are scheduled for July 2015 and should this not happen , then trouble is in place for Kulmiye administration.
