I saw one of Khalid Ali aka Gacanyare's posts where he was proposing for Somaliland not only to adopt but inherit the Ancient script of the Berber people called Tifinagh. In the old times, the world's leading civilizations believed Somaliland was part of the Berber people and its people (Somaliland) were called Berber. It's ancient city also known as Malao was called Berbera (probably renamed Berbera in the 10th-12th centuries). It remains Berbera to this day.
Thus it makes sense to inherit part of the Berber legacy including script and even renaming Somaliland the ancient Numidia etc.
Khalid suggested we replace Siad Barre's Latin script and while I support this move, I suggest we replace it slowly by replacing few characters. We should start with the two most characters that Wanlaweins abuse the most; KH and DH. No two letters differentiate us from Wanlawein more than these two so we should tackle them.
In due them, the other letters will follow. There is no point claiming to be separating yet taking Siad Barre's favorite jacket to your bedroom. Cut all ties and cut all historical relations is the way to go. Completely reinvent the nation is the right step.
The new DH is an "X" joined at the bottom while the new KH is half "H".
Next letter is Q and removing all the double vowels from the language. No more AA, II, EE, OO BS. It's designed to save money (print cost) and time. No need for double letters just to make one point for example DH, KH, ii, ee, oo, aa. This is shortsightedness in my book. We have to be on the go and keep cost low by removing unnecessary characters.
In short the Berbers are much much closer to us linguistically, culturally, geographically and historically than the Latin people and their script.
