In part one and part two, I have exposed the mess created by Wadani party candidate and his party politburo in Somaliland legislative and executive branches of government in the last decade and how it is contradictory to call for a change by Wadani ,what change? Who is apt to change the mess they have created, them? Or some one else?
Wadani party recently stated that they have transferred the post of party chairman to Abdiqadir Jirde, nevertheless all the letters and correspondences coming out of Wadani party headquarters are signed by the actual party chairman and Wadani candidate Abdurrahman Irro.Therefore it is paradox and at odds to claim that you have handed over a post to someone and still you are keeping the signature of the post.

Further Wadani party claims that it is a nationalist party which likes the land and its people; however this is being contradicted by their hatred of the national defense forces and their belittling of the value of military service. Can a country stand on its feet without a national defense force, bearing in mind the countless threats emanating from the Horn of Africa region. When you tell the youth, serving in the army is bad and it is inferior profession and any one who served in the army has a lower intellect and can not lead a nation, then your hatred of the peace and tranquility of Somaliland is palpable and beyond doubt.
On the other hand, Wadani party argues that there is a rivalry within Kulmiye for the post of chairmanship. The awkward folks who have used to engineer conflicts within Kulmiye are now in the Wadani executive leadership. The fear of conflict and confusion exists in Wadani not Kulmiye. Kulmiye has a clear and tested procedure as to how to hand over the post of the chairmanship at the appropriate time.

Similarly Wadani argues that it is going to prop up the disabled people but at the same time it discredits and disparages the struggle they have lost their legs and hands. It is a bazaar paradox to claim that you are supporting the disabled of the struggle and at the same time deny and demean the cause they were fighting for.
On the same footing Wadani argues that it will heed and do something about the grievances of the discriminated tribes and tribes residing in Awdel and Sool. On the contrary Mr.Barkhad from the discriminated tribes shown for his desire for seeking the post of Wadani party’s vice president candidate, but he was told that he is not eligible.Similarly,Ahmed muumin seed,Wadani’s long-term first deputy have been sidelined and Wadani preferred for an other chap who is new to the party. The only reason Ahmed muumin seed have been sidelined and discriminated was as per Wadani argument that he is from a small tribe in comparison with the other candidate. Therefore Wadani’s rhetoric and actual behavior is miles apart.
