When something happens like an important public event such as elections, ruling by a court of justice .. etc, people affected by the new developments rise up either in relief and celebrations or express their indignation. If justice is served, people are happily relieved. The birth of Jubaland State of Somalia is a case in point where people are engaged in non-stop celebrations world-wide. Something must be right here in the creation of the New Federal State. Mogadishu leadership must embrace this hugely popular endeavor for the sake of its own political survival. The idea of Jubaland State of Somalia has been already planted deeply in the psyche of thousands of people for many generations to come. Take it seriously.
