There is no city outside of Addis Ababa that is bigger than Bosaso today.
Bahir Dar, Mekelle, Jijiga, Nazret, Dire Dawa, all of them are under 200,000. They put 70% of the national budget in Addis Ababa just so they can host conferences for their neighbors.
In 20 years, Somalia will be the most spread-out and best built country in Africa, we will have 20 cities above 200,000 soon, all growing at the same time. That's the biggest benefit of the civil war.
2020 looks bright, it would be interesting to compare Bosaso, Hargaisa and Kismaayo.
