Plan to withdraw US soldiers sparks anxiety in Somalia

Plans by the United States to withdraw its troops from Somalia has caused anxiety among partners involved in the war against terror in the country, with appeals for Washington to reconsider its decision.
There were reports that President Donald Trump had asked his top security advisers to draw up a plan for the withdrawal of US troops from Somalia in order to fulfill a 2016 campaign promise to bring US soldiers home from places like Afghanistan, Syria, and Germany.
While the plan to withdraw from Somalia is not yet concrete, it could leave the African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom) less effective, given that the US troops have been providing essential aerial surveillance on Al Shabaab activities and helping in air bombardment using drones.
Somalia President Abdullahi Muhammed Farmajo tweeted that his government wants the US troops to stay. “The United States military support to Somalia has enabled us to effectively combat Al Shabab and secure the Horn of Africa. A victory through this journey and for Somali-US partnership can only be achieved through continuous security partnership and capacity building support,” he said tweeted.
The US maintains between 600 and 800 troops in Somalia that work closely with Amisom and the Somalia National Army (SNA) in combating Al Shabaab.
The US Africa Command (Africom) helped set up an elite Somali counterterrorism unit, the Danab Advanced Infantry Brigade, in which the US troops have been assisting in operations against Al-Shabaab.
The US forces have also been collaborating with Amisom, especially the Kenyan confinement, in the drone pre-emptive attacks against Al Shabaab leadership.
Amisom spokesperson Col Charles Okongo Ambiakha told The EastAfrican that it will be up to the United Nations Security Council and the African Union Peace and Security Council to give guidance on the way forward should the US troops withdraw.
“However, we at Amison are committed to fulfilling our mandate as stipulated in UN Security Council Resolution 2520 (2020), as we prepare to hand over security responsibility to Somali Security Forces by December 2021,” said Col Ambiakha.
The Resolution 2520 adopted in May while noting that the situation in Somalia continues to constitute a threat to international peace and security, directed that Amisom should maintain the deployment of 19,626 uniformed personnel until February 28, 2021, when the force is supposed to start the process for full withdraw from Somalia since it entered the country in 2007.
This includes a minimum of 1,040 Amisom police personnel including five Formed Police Units, to support security preparations for 2020/21 elections and complete the plan for the handover of security to Somali security forces.
While Amisom troops have been the target of attack by Al Shabaab, the militants in January 2020, attacked a US and Kenyan military base in Manda Bay Airfield in Lamu, killing one US serviceman and two Department of Defense contractors. In September, the US Africa Command’s director of intelligence, Heidi Berg, expressed concern that Al Shabaab was becoming more emboldened in targeting troops.

Ghana superstar, Thomas Partey has revealed why he kept his move top Europe from his friends with the exception of his father.
The midfielder left Tema Youth at a very tender age to join Atletico Madrid for trials.
So to make sure nothing could jeopardise his dream move, he kept it secret from all of his friends and family, with the exception of his father.
"My dad knew about it but then I told him not to tell anyone," Partey said. "There was a saying that when everybody knows about your move, they can disturb you. That's mostly in Ghana because I was playing with my friends and you never know what someone is thinking, so we just had to keep it secret until everyone saw it.
"I wanted to play outside Ghana and I was focused on playing with the great people we saw on TV because we used to watch La Liga, the Premier League, so many leagues. All my inspirations played in that league.
"Moving to Spain taught me a lot and I've learnt a lot from it, how to take decisions on my own, how to be perfect, how to try to go through hell. But then you know that after the hell, you have important things ahead that you can enjoy.
"I'll always take those challenges and I know that with all these challenges, you'll be able to make it."
Partey made his debut on Saturday against Manchester City.

In the year 2008 which His Excellency the late John Evans Fifi Atta Mills won a popular vote of 4,521,032 striking it to a percentage of 50.2% to The former foreign minister (Akuffo Addo) with a popular vote of 4,480,446 which is to a percentage of 49.8%.
The inflation rate ( which economist defines the general raie and fall of price goods) which is 16.51%. In 2009 NDC been represented by Atta Mills the late make considerable effort in striking the percentage down to 13.14%,.... Considerable in 2008 there was a drastic a drastic reduction from 13.14% to 6.7%, which the government deserved a hands of applause because he really worked hard.
The Ex vice president, John Mahama was inaugurated on 24 July 2012, by then inflation rate was 7.07%.
Upon his inauguration onto office, Ghana continuing experience drastic rise in the general rise and fall of price goods, that is, 2013- 11.67%, 2014- 15.49%,. 2015- 17.15%,. 2016- 17.46%.
Looking at the inflation rate of Mahama's administration, it kept increasing yearly which made the standard of leaving very difficult for a common man.
In January 2017, a new president, Nana Addo assumed office, which he curbed inflation rate drastically in order to maximize the welfare of the citizens as he always address, fellow citizens.
Let's compare his inflation rate to the NDC Government, in 2017, the inflation rate felled from 17.46% to 12.37% , in 2018, the was a mass fall on inflation to 9.84%, in 2019, the general rise and fall of price goods still humbled itself to a percentage of 7.18%.

If you really analyze my piece of writing, u should be told who made Ghana a hell to live in. The standard of living of the electorate is nothing to write home about.

LEARNING AND EARNING
KWAME and KOFI joined a wholesale company together just after graduation. Both worked very hard.
After several years, the boss promoted KOFI to sales executive but KWAME remained a sales rep. One day KWAME could not take it anymore, tender resignation to the boss and complained the boss did not value hard working staff, but only promoted those who flattered him.
The boss knew that KWAME worked very hard for the years, but in order to help KWAME realize the difference between him and KOFI, the boss asked KWAME to do the following. Go and find out anyone selling water melon in the market? KWAME returned and said yes. The boss asked how much per kg? KWAME went back to the market to ask and returned to inform boss the GHC12 .00per kg.
Boss told KWAME, I will ask KOFI the same question? KOFI went, returned and said, boss, only one person selling water melon. GHC12.00 per kg, GHC10.00 for 10 kg, he has inventory of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weighs about 15 kg, bought from the South two days ago, they are fresh and red, good quality.
KWAME was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and KOFI. He decided not to resign but to learn from KOFI.
Kwame did what most of us wouldn't do. At the workplace, at school, church, a chosen profession and even in our families ,we have different capabilities, how we see and handle things.we see life challenges too differently. We may have one qualification but different strengths and weaknesses. Instead of we humbling ourselves to learn from colleagues, we rather practice backbiting, pull him down, jealousy etc, which isn't healthy to ourselves and organizations we find ourselves.
It's better to work hard but adding smartness and advancing ourselves in chosen careers distinguishes us. We are in era where MUSCLE POWER PAINS BUT BRAIN POWER PAYS because brain power "SELLS"(intellectual property) more than muscle power. Humility should teach us to learn from colleagues and add to ours to become better persons and earn more money should we change jobs or increase our value at same job and earn better salaries
My dear friends, a more successful person is more observant, think more and understand in depth. For the same matter, a more successful person sees several years ahead, while you see only tomorrow. The difference between a year and a day is 365 times, how could you win?
Think! how far have you seen ahead in your life? How thoughtful in depth are you?
Prov 1:5 "A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding may attain unto a sound counsels.
