SOMALIA: Feature -
Peace talks: the alternative voice
ELDORET, 23 Oct 2002 (IRIN) - As warlords, faction leaders,
members of the Transitional National Government and others gather
in the western Kenyan town of Eldoret for "make-or-break"
peace talks, a small group of "alternative" invitees
is slowly making its voice heard.
The Somali national reconciliation conference opened on 15
October after months of wrangling and delays. Confused mediation
by the regional Inter-Governmental Authority on Development
(IGAD) and disagreements between Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya
- the technical committee members set up to pave the way for
the meeting - led to the repeated postponement of the talks,
originally slated for April this year.
But warnings by the IGAD organisers that this was the last
chance and there would be no further postponements finally brought
many of the opposing sides together. As the talks progressed,
more faction leaders who originally said they would not attend,
started arriving in the Kenyan highland town. Hopes were raised
that the conference might achieve something where numerous prior
attempts had failed.
Leading the chorus of voices for peace and change are representatives
of civil society organisations invited to attend the talks.
They comprise womens groups, human rights groups, traditional
elders and religious leaders many of whom stress their
Hirsi Hurre Du'ale, better known as Calanside (flag bearer),
is described by many Somalis as the "only true patriot
left in Somalia". Originally from Burao in the self-declared
republic of Somaliland, he dismisses the notion of separate
states within Somalia, and advocates a federal administration
with a strong central government.
Calanside - who was an active member of the independence movement,
the Somali Youth League (SYL) - was invited to the talks as
a respected Somali elder, an independent thinker. "I am
one of the few Somali people who has left his clan behind,"
he says, alluding to the clan-based nature of Somali society.
"I am a Somali nationalist. This clan mentality must be
He strongly believes that the way to bring Somalis together
is to instil nationalist values into them, and this, he says,
can be achieved by reminding them of their traditional culture.
"I want to show them the Somali nationalist is still alive,
so I always carry the Somali flag and the SYL uniform, and always
I sing Somali national songs," he says. "I want Somalis
to remember themselves as they were before, not what they are
He thinks the nationalist mentality is in the heart of many
of his countrymen, but they are too afraid of their clans to
Calanside notes that Somalia was always a clan-based society,
with fights over water and land. But the problem of clans spiralled
out of control after independence in 1960. The Italian colonialists
favoured pro-Italians over nationalists when it
came to handing over the administration at independence, and
this started creating deep divisions. The problem worsened after
Muhammad Siyad Barre came to power in a 1969 coup, and injustice
and nepotism became the order of the day, says Calanside.
"The civil war [triggered by Barres ouster in 1991]
came when everyone was ready to explode, and they did,"
Calanside advocates inculcating a true sense of Somali-ism
into his countrymen through national songs and culture. "We
should use traditional Somali ways to bring Somalis together,"
But he does acknowledge that this will take time. "People
are so far gone," he notes sadly.
