Stop making excuses for those bastards ,
Oligarchs are like herpes simplex virus you never fully get rid of it, actually a better example is HIV.
HIV can be kept undercontrol and you can live a healthy life with the right antiviral drugs and lifestyle.
Oligarchs will always be there in every society, they will come in many forms,
from communist party elite to billionaries in the US to the Ina Diigchiils and omaars and indodeeros.
What you should know is that the periods of history when you get progess socially and economically coincide with those periods when the oligarch vermin scourge had been under control.
after a cull of this infestation you have periods of rennaissance and progress.
during the period of prosperity they will slowly sneak back in, and start taking control and the cycle of decay, death and rebirth start all over again.
Do not make excuses for HIV.
Im not making excuses for Oligarchs, infact I'm not even sure I believe in the existence of oligarchs in Somaliland i'll explain why:
Like I said earlier in Somaliland you have three forces that are both in direct competition and constant partnership; Government, Big Business (the rich men) and Tribes. Not one of these is an Oligarchy on its own.
The term oligarch generally refers to a ruling class. They gain their power and their ability to rule over the masses through their strangle hold on country's business environment and resources. The Kulmiye government and the UDUB one before do not fit this description nor will what ever government that follows. Why? because they are powerless without the rich men and the Qabils.
Your problem is not with Oligarchs (because they don't exist in SL) or the rich men. Your problem is with the structure of Somaliland's business environment. Somaliland's business environment is underpinned by radical free market principles, these sort of market structures result in monopolies, duopolies and oligopolies in key sectors such as telecommunication (Telesom),food imports (Indhodeero,Ina Omar), banking (Dhabashiil), energy etc.
The problem with this type of system is that as the monopolies and duopolies get bigger by diversifying into other markets they leave less room for others to make money resulting in the rich getting richer and poor getting poorer.
I personally think that as a weak, underdeveloped, under skilled nation it is very difficult to avoid such market structures because as a government if you cannot afford to compete to provide your citizens with quality education, healthcare and fuel then how can you regulate these markets.
in conclusion, there isn't an Oligarchy in Somaliland however we have the perfect environment in which one can develop.
