"Their militias would many times bring live people to the cemetery, then order us to dig graves before executing the people in the graves we just dug right in front of our eyes, telling us to bury them."

Those years continue to haunt Jama: "I don't like to dig a grave for a person standing next to me begging for mercy."

Some of his colleagues were killed when they refused to dig graves for militias. "Five of my friends were killed when they refused to dig grave for militias when they brought a live person."

:mindblown:
Sacid needs to fire the Travel Agent Cilmooge. What kind of crap is this ?

You don't think Somalis are capable of such actions?

Elfruler,

If I was the Minister of Information, I'd clamp down on these dubious new organizations. Matter of fact, all foreign journalists would need to be registered, only get their visas approved after the MOI reviews their credentials and what they want to report on. In addition, a MOI minder would be assigned to them to monitor them.

Fock, Somalia used to be one of the most difficult places on earth for foreigners to get visas and now they allow all kinds of riff raff 3rd rate freelance journalists who are trying to get made coming to Somalia to write sensational fiction to be sold as journalism.

unlike what the evil journalists are trying to convince the world, actually Somalia was prosperous and peaceful in the last 22 years, envy for the rest of the world. :up: :D

I agree, all domestic and foreign journalist should register and their credentials should be verified. But every journalist stretches the truth a little bit, and we should grow a thicker skin or start investing in Somali journalists that could verify and challenge any misinformation that could negatively portray the nation. Having monopoly over the information coming out of Somalia is something a dictator would prefer. In due time, we will have educated Somalis who are more than capable of intellectually refuting fallacious claims and reports.

Besides, I won't be surprised if the MOI's silence and cooperation could be bought.
