 ciyaar-jecel-5Mogadishu city swamped by Somali Diasporas. Everyone now has their own interest in mind. Statistics shows that most Diasporas were looking for political opportunities, and some of them had business opportunities in mind. Not for Hussein Shire Jama ( Cayaar Jecel ). Hussein who is the Somali music star and the member of Qayladhaan Band arrived in Mogadishu wearing a Military uniform. As soon as he got off the plane, Hussein kissed the ground, and praised to Allah for bring him back to his country after a long time. When Hussein was given an interview by the local media, he has mentioned that the only reason he came to Mogadishu is to fight with Al-Qaida. While Hussein was in Mogadishu, he visited the Military compound where he sang the spiritual song to boost the military morale. The song touched all their hearts deeply. Unexpectedly, one of the soldiers fainted and was taken to the hospital for further treatment. The Qeyladhan Band became famous when Al-Qaida attacked Shamo Hotel and killed many innocent students, teachers, doctors, and leaders. Qeyladhan released a song named Qaylodhan which touched the hearts of many Somalis.  All in all, Hussein’s journey was based on moral boost to Somali military so they can continue to fight terrorist groups.

Robbins. Hawa Abdi continues to operate her aid organization until today.

According to United Nation Security Council report on July 2013, most Somali Aid Organizations run remotely. "Despite improved access in certain areas of the country, accesses to vulnerable civilians remain a challenge for the humanitarian community. All parties in Somalia continue to obstruct the provision of humanitarian assistance. Al-Shabaab maintained and expanded its ban on most aid agencies in areas under its control. While all actors in Somalia subjected humanitarian organizations to taxation, illegal roadblocks, intimidation and extortion. Moreover, as a consequence of both remote Management by aid agencies in Nairobi and the culture of "gatekeepers”, diversion of humanitarian assistance by third parties as well as by staff and partners of aid organizations, continues to undermine international efforts”.
