Re-introducing the Somali Shilling in Beledweyne

Where in the world have people abandoned paper money entirely? It is not Silicon Valley and not Singapore but, of all places, Beledweyne, the capital of Hiiraan region of Somalia. Since November 2017, the Somali Shilling has not been used in Beledweyne. Mobile money and hard currency US dollars are the only acceptable modes of payment in the market. Although the understanding and literacy of the majority of the residents in using mobile money is low, the community in Beledweyne have no other option but to use mobile technology and US dollars for daily transactions. The EVC Plus Service of Hormuud Telecommunications Company and E-Dahab of Somtel Telecommunications Company provide the only acceptable electronic money in the city. Read more

Dib-usoo-celinta isticmaalka Shilinka Soomaaliga ee magaalada Beledweyne

Halkee dunida kamid ah oo ay dadku gebi ahaanba iska joojiyeen isticmaalka lacagta warqadda ah? Ma ahan Silicon Valley mana ahan Singapore, laakiin waa Beledweyne, magaalo madaxda gobolka Hiiraan ee Soomaaliya. Lagasoo billaabo bishii Nofeembar ee sanadkii 2017, lacagta Shilin Somaaliga lagama isticmaalin Beledweyne. Lacagaha moobilka lagu qaato iyo lacagta adag ee doollarka Mareykanka ayaa ah lacagta kaliya ee la oggol-yahay in wax lagu kala iibsado suuqyada. Inkastoo fahamka iyo aqoonta dad badan oo deggan magaalada ay u leeyihiin isticmaalka lacagaha moobilka ay aad u hooseyso, haddana bulshada Beledweyne ma haystaan wax ikhtiyaar ah oo aan ahayn in ay lacagta lagu qaato moobilka iyo doollarka Mareykanka u isticmaalaan wax kala iibsiga maalinlaha ah. Adeegga EVC- Plus ee Shirkadda Isgaarsiinta Hormuud iyo adeegga E-Dahab oo ay leedahay Shirkadda Isgaarsiinta Somtel ayaa ah lacagaha electroniga ah ee magaalada laga isticmaalo. Read more

Judiciary models for Somalia

At the outset of the union between British and Italian Somalilands in 1960, Somalia’s judiciary sector faced systematic challenges. The Law of the Organization of the Judiciary in 1962 reconciled and harmonized the British Common and Italian Latin law systems of the respective former colonial administrations. An integrated judiciary system served both centralized unitary civilian and military governments until the latter was overthrown in 1991. Read more

Hababka nidaaminta garsoorka Soomaaliya

Midowgii gobolladii Ingiriiska iyo Talyaaniga ay gumeysan jireen ee sanadkii 1960-kii kadib, garsoorka Soomaaliya waxa uu wajahay caqabado dhanka isla-jaanqaadka ah. Sharciga Nidaaminta Garsoorka ee la ansixiyay sanadkii 1962-dii ayaa is-waafajiyay nidaamyada sharci ee Ingiriiska iyo Talyaaniga oo ay labada gobol horey u isticmaali jireen. Nidaam garsoor mideysan ah ayay ku dhaqmeen dowladihii rayidka iyo militariga ee dalka kasoo arrimiyay ilaa xukunkii laga riday dowladdii militariga sanadkii 1991. Read more
