Dir/Isaaq/Darod/Hawiye/Raxanweyn are the same ethnic group (80% of Somalia)Right on, we as diverse people as any other african country. The only thing we have in common is the deen. As an ethnic Dal udugian from the north east, I never understood folks who say somali waa haal umaad.
The mainstream big clans (mentioned previously) have the same origins (East Cushitic ancestry).I disagree
Gegi,Sumu, you have forgotten the Garre who speak their own language in Lower Shabelle, the Dabare in Bay region who have their distinct language, the Barawanis who speak a dialect of Swahili, and the Gosha people who speak their own mother language - a dialect that is related to Swahili that is spoken in Tanzania and Mozambique.
Don't forget the Yibir (Anaas) and Gabooye have had their own languages that was distinct from the mainstream Somali language.
Of course, different languages come with different ethnic groups.
P.S. One correction though, Hassan Sheekh Mohamud speaks a mainstream Somali language with Southern Galguduud / Middle Shabbelle region dialect!
Couldn't have said it better. Multiculturalism is a myth.Somalia and SL and PL are one of the last remaining countries that aren't trying to push this multiculturalism nonsense. Truly one of the last few 'free' countries.
