Joojinta qaadka: Wadashaqaynta hay’adda Safer Bristol iyo bulshada Soomaaliyeed
Hay’adda Safer Bristol waxay bulshada Soomaaliyeed ee magaalada ku nool kala sii shaqaynayasay sidii loo maarayn lahaa saamaynta joojinta qaaadku bulshada ku yeelanayo marka ay berri (24 June) dawladdu go’aankeedii dhaqan geliso
Qaadku waa geed firfircooni geliya unugyada jidhka. Dhaqan ahaan qaadka waxa badanaa isticmaala ragga Soomaalida, Yamanida, Keenyaatiga iyo reer Jabuuti marka ay marfishyada ku sheekaysanayaan – marfishyadu waa guryo ama goobo raggu ku qayilaan, kulmaan, kuna sheekaystaan ama ku go’aamiyaan arrimaha bulshada. Maadaama uu qaadku yahay maandooriye dhaqan ahaan lagu sheekaysto ama la isku waraysto saacado badan ayaa loo fadhiyaa oo la qayilaa.
Qaadku wuxuu qofka cuna ka dhigaa mid feejigan oo hadal badan, marka dhowr saacadood loo fadhiyo xasilooni iyo deganaansho ayuu qofka u keenaa, sidoo kale cunto xumo iyo hurdo la’aan ayuu keeni karaa. Sii akhri warsaxaafadeedka oo dhamaystiran
Over the last three to five years, Bristol schools have taken productive steps to improve the engagement of parents although they ought to do more if they are to enable pupils remove hurdles to their advancement. The current engagement strategies, for example, should be looked at thoroughly and further developed to make schools be more democratically governed, but equally more responsive to the diverse needs of the local community.

Investing in a conflict zone like Somalia can be suicidal for global businesses even if the rate of return for their faith is higher. There is the need to worry about Corporate Social Responsibility, staff security, eruption of spontaneous violence, poor infrastructure and no legal recourse if things go wrong. Moreover, in the absence of widely available opportunities and political voice, together with corrupted leaders that embezzled seven out of every ten dollars they received according to a UN report published in July and strong presence of Al-Shabaab, people have come to rely on their tribes for security, protection and welfare. As a result, it would be very hard for both local and foreign investors to just set up a business in a certain region, bring their chosen staff and get on with their business without employing local tribes men in key posts even if they lack the qualifications and experience. Where they do decide to employ locals, investors may have to make enormous investment in the education and training which can deter even those with the deepest pockets. Continue reading
What has happened to the very patriarchal culture of the Somalis? And Why the Somali youth crime has become a global issue? Or was youth crime present (as an integral part of the cultures of the host countries) long before the Somalis have settled in the West? Or has the multi-agency approach, which has not considered the importance of culture in addressing youth crime, taken by Youth Offending Teams (YOTs) contributed to the high rate crime activities — both offending and re-offending — among the Somali youth in England (and UK)?
The terms Somali and crime are becoming interchangeable in many right wing newspapers and blogs in England today. It, misleadingly, when combined with over two decades of civil war, gives the impression that the Somali culture celebrates or at least, tolerates violence and deviance.

Somalia; ‘Diaspora-led’ political parties : A new phenomenon constructed in the security of the Western world and by those who have very little real involvement with Somalia and its politics. It is built on arrogance, fantasy and colonial like ambition of civilising the Somali people through sudden democracy. This phenomenon I refer to is the creation of who have the desire to return home to govern their people.
From Ha Noolaato (where are they now?), Tayo and Hiil Qaran to the others I have not heard of but probably exist, there is this believe among their Diaspora leaders that they will be the ones to return peace, stability and security to Somalia. What is consistent about all of these organisations is that they are led from the comfort of the Western world and they are spearheaded by ambitious but out of touch individuals.
Many businesses are making workers redundant in response to the global financial crisis. The argument has been that because of poor sales brought about by weak consumer spending and confidence, the high cost of employing and retaining staff is no longer financially justifiable. While this argument is credible given the difficult trading conditions internationally, most ethnic lead businesses in the UK have always been poor at retaining qualified staff. Many business leaders that have been approached for this article have argued that many of their former employees were unreliable, lazy and difficult to get along with. They went on to argue that many of them lacked customer service skills and had at times been dishonest and as a result were not employable. Continue reading
