Somali Bantus want their fair share in TFG and Jubbaland

NEW YORK (HOL) ---Hundreds of Somali Bantu community rallied in the downtown New York on Monday, protesting against disproportion of power sharing arrangement in the Somali politics and leadership.

The protestors who were carrying placards that read ‘Somali Bantu Speak Up’ have marched through the streets of New York as police patrolled the area, coinciding their march-protest at a time the United Nations’ General Assembly's seventieth session was going on at the UN headquarters in New York.

“We are protesting against injustice, inequality in Somalia’s power sharing scheme,” said Abdi Mude, the spokesman for the Somali Bantu community in the US.

“Our rally is largely focusing on the denial of our supposed power sharing allocation to our community in the Jubba regions’ administration.” He said

Mr. Mude has also complained of an alleged robbery against Bantu farmers in the region which produces large parts of Somalia’s agricultural production.

“We want to meet Somali president who is among dozens of world leaders attending the UN summit to submit our grievances.” He said

Like the rest of Somalis, Somali Bantu, an ethnic minority group in Somalia who primarily reside in the southern part of the country, near the Juba and Shabelle rivers has suffered during Somalia’s decades-old conflict.

During the Somali Civil War, many Bantu were forced from their lands in the lower Juba River valley, as militiamen from various Somali clans took control of the area. Being visible minorities and possessing little in the way of firearms, the Bantu were particularly vulnerable to violence and looting by gun-toting militiamen

In the view of the prosecutions against Somalis Bantu community, the United States has led efforts aimed at giving resettlement for the community and classified them as refugees from Somalia in 1991, offering them a resettlement scheme under an ambitious resettlement plan with thousands of Bantus scheduled for resettlement in America.

In 2003, the first Bantu immigrants began to arrive in U.S. cities, and by 2007, around 13,000 had been resettled to cities throughout the United States with the help of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the U.S. State Department, and refugee resettlement agencies across the country, according to the open content online encyclopaedia site, Wikipedia.


I hope they achieve political inclusion and get rid of the apartheid 4.5 system currently in place. It's ridiculous how there is more dhabayaco representation in Jubbaland than Beelweynta Jareerweyne.

Son, I have a piece of advise for you! Seek an urgent professional help as you clearly suffer from advanced case of a deadly disease commonly referred in the medical literature as dhabayacotitis.

The Ilka yars, Cagdheers, Dhabayacos and Dhulos are destroying what was once a great Somali city of Kismaayo.

What a shame.

If representation were given to those who do deserve it the most. Bantus would represent 1 in the 4.5 clan system.

Is there any reason why voting system based on the size of clans not used?

These people are some of the most civilized, hard working, and nicest Somalis you'll find in the country. In my opinion, even if they are not ethnically Somali, they are at least more closer to ethnic Somalis than those that originate from a completely foreign people and on a completely different continent (iidoor and Jaberti). They are more closely related to the natives of the land than those two groups are. This entire 4.5 system needs to be revamped where the iidoor and the Jaberti are reduced to having a minority voice and the bantu people are given a major platform as given to other native tribes.

Bantu marginalization in Somalia is not going to fly in the age of the internet and social media. It's disgusting the way we as community talk and treat our fellow citizens.

Jubbaland dad ba 200 years ago, gaala madoow ka xooreystaay, as for bantus lama dhibo,dhulkana marti beey ku yihin. Hadeey xaaq radsanayan Shabelloyinka ila hiiraan baa lagu xasuqaay haka hadlan.

As for bantus being the most civilized Somalis lol maad arkin walle wa one of the most primitive. Nooloshooda, waa shareerow, a dance for jiin, sixir, dhaqaan xumo. The only good thing I can come up wih is they are hard workers.

Kamasale Hawiye are not going to take the land grabbing scheme lead by migrants from Ethiopia and Kenya take their land. The REAL HAG stand with their Kamasale allies.

200 years ago? Your people were snitching on Halyeey Sayid Maxamed Abdille Xasan until he ran you off the cliffs into the sea. Don't take credit for things your kinfolk could not do.

Pick up a book about jubbaland and read, IQra!! I refuse to debate with a Moryaan Shalaay Warlord Caydiid the desert kaso urireey.

Jubbaland is recognized, It has Darood backing, and the world, your president and every southern regional president was at inauguration and parliament opening. NO .5, Jareer, Kamasle Hawiye, Elaay, cadcaad, galmudigian can change the course and faith of Dowlada iyo Deeganka Jubbaland.

If Dolo is Darood and Kismayo is Darood, we can safely assume we own everything in between.

What is with this genocide claims they are making? Who is killing them? I understand they are politically under represented in the regions they live in and also in the federal government but genocide? No one is killing Somali Bantus anywhere that I know of. Most of their youth joined Al Shabab and wrecking havoc all over the country. They were also active members of the genocidal USC militias that claimed the lives of so many Somalis in the early days of the civil war. As for representation, half of Shabbelleda Hoose and Dhexe belongs them. Same with Jubbada Hoose and Hiiraan. The city of Jowhar is a Somali bantu city.
