WIthout him you would be sniffing glue and begging for change in Garowe instead of surfing in comfort in the developed world.
Caydiid could have been a part of the ''Creme de la creme'' that Afwweyne created, the ''upper elite'' but he was a man of light. Nin wax garad ah and a brilliant general. I do not think there will ever be a man of Caydiids caliber in the Somali army ever.
During the war with Etiopia, Afwweyne did not trust him even though the Somali battalion fighting to capture DirirDhaba had lost severly and the other battalion was about to loose JigJiga but in the end Afwweyne had to give the command of those 2 battalions to Caydiid and Caydiid planned and executed the retreat without loosing any soldier.
Caydiid was the true definiton of Libaaaax
