Mr. Boleh has the unwavering support of the Djiboutian majority for sure, who are sick and tire of status quo , what could be better place to announce his candidacy other than VOA, we knew BBC Somali service journalist have been biased, they miserably fail to pose IOG the tough questions that we accustomed from the BBC journalist.
The US, French and AU have to take a position of what IOG is doing soon than later, we have already the signs of them trying to engage quietly behind the scene, for example the media is one of powerful tools, the US use to show it intention or you can predict their intention through the media.
Well arranging simultaneously interview of Mr. Boreh and puppet interior minister Yasin on VOA is the right step on the direction. who has headed infrastructure and public works companies in Djibouti, accused the president and his wife Odette Haid of murder, kidnapping, torture, acts of barbarism and extortion.
According to Boreh’s lawyer Olivier Morice, the Franco-Djibouti businessman “has been the target of threats and intimidation by Djibouti authorities, which forced him to flee Djibouti in autumn 2008.” At first the attacks targeted his assets but later they also included business associates and family members, two of whom died in suspect circumstances, Morice said. “The actions of the Djibouti authorities can be explained by the role that the presidential couple fears Boreh could play in the next presidential election that must be held in 2011,” Morice said. “I’ve lost more than 30 million dollars (22 million euros) and I no longer have any commercial activities in Djibouti. I had to close down everything,” Boreh told AFP
The French tried to play down initially when Mr. Borah filed a civil complaint in Paris against IOG, for crimes including murder and extortion, he and his lawyer said, it took almost three weeks by the time the French government to release the case to the media. According a source close to government the delay was caused by the internal memo of accusing the French government of not living up to its obligation.
According his closet friends in Djibouti before he left, Mr. Boreh improved his Somali language skill, he conducted the interview without mixing the Somali Language with other languages for the most part, the good things for the Djiboutian he sound like he determine to change the regime thought democratic means and if it necessary he might resort to another any means necessary, and IOG is determine to stay in power by any means necessary.
Mr. Boreh all of a sudden has given the presidential campaign a new lease of life, as we all know the local opposition parties has given up under tremendous pressure from the IOG state machinery. The last party PND that insisted the constitution not be amended has fallen under the shadeless of RPP tree, as usual it is going to fry under heat of the sun 45-50 degree centigrade, it’s hell-on-earth.
