Kismayo is the temporary capital of Juba + Land region of Somalia. Juba is run by the veteran warlord and the Amir of Raskamboni Alshabab Brigade aka Sheihk Ahmed Islaam Ahmed Madoobe. The took control of Kismayo in 2011 with the support of the kenyan defense force KDF and rules the region till today with no hope for to step aside any time sooner with his mandate as a governor coming to an end in Augsust 2021.
Why the Sheikh wants to stay in power for so long ?
The last standing and most feared Somali warlord (Sheikh Ahmed Madobe)
That question why the Sheikh wants to stay in power for so long has many reasonable answers:
he wants to establish his own monarchy where there is only his clan in control of the whole
he wants wants displace all other clans indigenous to that area and replace them with his clan
he wants to make himself the richest by taking the money generated from the ports and from the international donor support To realize his dream, the Sheikh must determine to kill everyone perceived to be a thorn in the throat or a barrier that prevents him from achieving his goals and objectives and this this is why the Sheikh commits extra-judicial and summery killings and extradites his opponents and dissidents in order to intimadte people and force them evacuate and leave their own land behind.
The international humanitarian and development aid that reaches kismayo only benefits the Sheikh and his clan who run everything thing in kismayo from MCH to big stores etc. this shows the severity of the situation and the immense menace that is facing ordinary people are living in kismayo without protection as they don’t belong to the Sheikh’s clan.

The land grabbing by Ahmed Madoobe Administration
The Sheikh is also grabbing land forcefully from people are originally from kismayo and giving the grabbed land to his clan for instance goobweyn, Yoontoy, and other villages in side and outside kismayo are being grabbed and given to people from the Sheikh’s own clan who arrive in kismayo from ethiopia on daily basis only to start new life in a house and on land grabbed from marginalized groups in kismayo. Communities who are originally from kismayo don’t have meaningful political representation or don’t have it at all while people arriving from Ethiopia and other parts of the region are given more political rights than they are entitled to.
We recommend the international stakeholders to take immediate action to sanction Ahmed Madoobe’s administration and to send a fact – finding mission that includes independent human rights observers… in order to avert from any manipulations by Madoobe’s administration.
