If we go by the previous regional division (pre-1975) than Mudug (Mudug/Galgaduud) is majority HG if we compare subclans and if it comes to clans than Hawiye is the majority in Mudug.


Hawiye inhabiting the smallest district in Gaalkacyo and the two smaller districts in Mudug make them the largest. Great math.

Mudug region: current Mudug and Galgaduud.

You have Murusade, Duduble, Abgaal, HG and Sheikhaal. HG is majority subclan in Mudug.

Forget about clans and look at towns. Northern Mudug is 100% Darood. Southern Mudug You have Wagardhac that live with Sacad. Western Galgudud is Marexaan, and eastern Northern Galgudud is shared between Hawiye and Dir. If Mudug was just one gobol like the old days, it would put Hawiye in a bad position.

On the contrary, if Mudug was one gobol than HG would be united in one gobol and dominate the region.

Why do u think that Barre's regime divided Mudug and Banadir? It was to dividide the natural dominance and unity of HG and Mudulood respectively, while at the same time creating provinces like Gedo, Sool, Sanaag, Nugaal etc.

Did you miss your quule quraac this morning because your level of comprehension is not that good.

What Somaliweyn is saying is Mudug as it was before Afweyne divided it into two regions (Mudug and Galgaduud) would be dominated by HG. Of course that is true and everyone would know that. It would mean that all of HG in one province. Forgot about HG, Cayr or even Sacad alone number way more than your tiny Ilkoyar clan and since all of Jareerten don't settle in Mudug, who else can challenge Iljeex as majority?

Ilkoyar in Galgaduud don't number more than Saruur and the entire Ilkoyar clan are maybe the same size as Saleeban.

Ilkoyar MUST be the most overrated clan because of the history of Afweyne.
