Somalia Loses a National Hero

26 Mar

The Somali people are mourning the death of a statesman, Col. Abdullahi Ahmed Yusuf, the first president of the Puntland State of Somalia and ex-president of the Transitional Federal government.  History has put a mournful seal on the great achievements of this national hero who devoted his time and effort to the salvation of Somalia, braving many dangers, taking rough paths if the situation demanded to realize his vision and goals on putting Somalia’s rough political ride back on track. He has not been deterred by the long prison terms in many different places and circumstances, assassination attempts and political sabotaging of his struggle.
