“We understand that Bryden’s wife hails from Isaq Clan, and possesses Somaliland passport rather than Somali passport, we know that he reflects the propaganda and the will of his in-laws particularly Dahabshil which was behind the closure of their competitors Al Barakat" Hawiye Leader said

Mogadishu (Sunatimes) Top TFG leadership and Hawiye traditional elders have condemned the annual report from International Crisis Group (ICG), stating that businessman Ahmednur Ali Jimale is part of Al Shabab terrorists.

The report which was published on the UN website adds that the mobile money transfer known as ZAAD, closed by Al Shabab, was established by Ahmednur in order financial transactions of Al Shabab are untraceable.President Sharif and Prime Minister Abdiweli wrote complaint to the international community, describing the contents of the report as untrue propaganda.Prime Minister Abdiweli said that the ICG report is part of the campaign of Matthew Bryden against sovereignty of Somalia.“We understand that Bryden’s wife hails from Isaq Clan, and possesses Somaliland passport rather than Somali passport, we know that he reflects the propaganda and the will of his in-laws particularly Dahabshil which was behind the closure of their competitors Al Barakat, and whose current intention is to close Hawiye money transfer agencies” said Hawiye traditional elders’ council chairman Mohamed Hassan Haad.

Haad called Hawiye to face Bryden’s propaganda against prominent Hawiye businessmen and politicians.After one day the Propaganda Report of ICG Somalia, The Security Council officially announced that Ahmednur Ali Jimale has been removed from the list of the terrorists.

The ICG report seems to be 85% unrealistic which targets every year Hawiye businessmen and politicians.

The report said that ZAAD service was created in favor of Al Shabab, but the truth is that Al Shabab shut down the service, accusing that is serves the interest of the west. Secondly, the maximum amount of money that can be sent through ZAAD was $150.This showsthat Al Shabab could not use it as financial channel.The report also accused Hormuud Telecom that the company contributes to Al Shabab.Independent investigation revealed that the majority of the company shares belongs to more that 5000 Somali national from different walks of life.Should Hormuud supports Al Shabab it couldn’t have won a large number of anti-Al Shabab customers.It seems the report favors for Dahabshil whose fight against Hawiye companies has many faces.On top of that, ZAAD service was business threat to Dahabshil.The only mistake of Hormud is not to respond to such propagandas as ICG report which was partially seen from tribal media, and its true that Bryden’s wife is a Somalilander and he is a Somaliland passport holder.
