THE INDIAN OCEAN NEWSLETTER n°1252
Troops Dragging their Feet
According to information gleaned by The Indian Ocean Newsletter, major
Ali Hamid, who was based in the north of the country, was sent back to
the capital after refusing to chase rebels from the armed wing of the
Front pour la Restauration de l’Unite et de la Democratie (FRUD) in the
mountainous region of Moussa Ali in the far north of the country along
the border with Eritrea .
This former military rebellion afar was built in 1995 in the government
Meanwhile, some military issas / fourlaba dragging their feet to go defy
Eritrea, as has undertaken to do the President Ismail Omar Guelleh (issa
/ mamassan). Thus, a commander of the barracks of Obock, Said Wallis, is
being held in prison for refusing Gabode obedience.
These soldiers are aware of the superiority of the capabilities of the
Eritrean army whose soldiers have delivered several wars in recent
years. Moreover, the conflict between the president IOG to his former
friend, businessman Abdurahman Boreh (Act No. 1251), could eventually
enter the loyalty to the Head of State of certain military issas /
odahgob, the same Boreh that clan, which predominate in the military.
The presidential couple fears that Eritrea not to bolster the Djiboutian
Afar rebels and increases their potential for action. If that were the
case, the malaise spread within the Djibouti army and the temptation
would be great for the president IOG to seek alternatives defense.
Already, in order to be positioned north of Obock on the border with
Eritrea, Ethiopia Issas are being recruited, especially among refugees
in the region Dikhil, fed by the Food Program (WFP). However, the vast
majority of these refugees will not respond to these demands.
The first lady Kadra Mahamoud Haid, would have it tried to recruit Issak
/ Habar Awal from Hargeisa (Somaliland) through wealthy traders of
Djiboutian original Issak. But so far, few have been baited.
