Some of Somali diplomats criticize the work of UN envoy to Somalia
Mogadishu ( DIPLOMAT.SO) – Many of Somali diplomats expressed their displeasure about the steps of United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Somalia Nicholas Kay on the situation in Somalia and accused him of inciting sedition, which increased the problems and political segmentation among Somalis.
Diplomats said Nicholas Kay, jumps out of the diplomatic bridge and did not bring peace and unity to Somalia.
Somalia is suffering since 1991 from the scourge of war and internal strife.
Former chargé d’affaires of Somalia embassy in Sanaa,Yemen Moktar Mohamed Hassan , said in an open letter .
“When Nicholas Kay came to Somalia the political process was functioning smoothly and everything was on schedule, after one and half year the picture in Somalia is very gloomy, he placed the country and the political process on the brink of collapse. He is determined to ruin our hopes”.
He added, wondering the same ” I don’t understand how Augustine Mahiga former UN Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Political Office for Somalia was able to handle the Herculean task of managing the road-map (drafting the constitution, selecting the parliament, electing the president, ending the transition, grouping the political opponents toward a one common goal and held a sequence of onerous meetings between them) at ease and without causing wrangles. While the actions of Mr. Kay is knowingly or unknowingly tends to create resentment and wrecking the whole political process.
The haunting question is: – is he doing this on purpose and according to some diabolical plan, or it’s just blindness.
Moktar Mohamed Hassan was appointed in May, 2014 honorary membership as a goodwill ambassador for Peace and Security by International Council of human rights, arbitration, politics and strategic studies.For more news and stories, join us on Facebook,Twitter , or contact us through our Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
