In November 2011, Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed, a 29 year old moron who was the Federal Trade Minister of Ethiopia was sacked and fired, and have been officially removed from his post by Meles Zenawi. Meles Zenawi said the tongue-tied boy couldn’t perform his job and is therefore dismissed. But after few days, the Head of the Military Forces in Harar (General Abraha Wolda) and Somalia Regional President (Abdi Mohamed Omar) said that the Somali Regional Government requested for Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed to be sent back to the region who ‘needs’ his expertise.

Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed is from Ogaden, but was born in Harar from Harari woman. The Regional President (Abdi Mohamed Omar) is from Ogaden, but with two wives who are relatives of Abdurrahman. The head of the military forces in Harar (General Abraha Wolda) is from Tigray who consider himself as a Harari boy and with a Harari girl friend.

Before taking the position of Minister of Trade, Abdurahman was head of the Somali Regional State Education Bureau, Disaster Prevention and Preparedness Bureau, and also Member of the Executive Committee of the Somali People’s Democratic Party (SPDP). Staff of these offices said the facts about this man. They got the actual face of this man (Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed) as a big crocodile, who lacks ethic and basic skills to talk, plan and report, and also run public institutions and manage people and resources. Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed looted all resources, materials and aid relief in the region, including the educational materials and school supplies, aid relief in the Somali regional state. Abdurahman was used to spend half of his time sitting in houses in jigjiga, signing office papers in that house, discussing contractors to give bribes.

Local people in the region and also staff members at regional and federal government offices who know and worked with Abdurahman believe that, Abdurahman is a bad boy and bad example of the bad officials and leaders from the pastoralists’ areas (i.e. Somali, Afar, Gambella and Banishangul-Gumuz) in Ethiopia. The assignment proposal was done by the Head of the Military Forces in Harar (General Abraha Wolda) and Somalia Regional President (Abdi Mohamed Omar) without consulting the Central and Executive Committees of the Somali People’s Democratic Party (SPDP).

When Abdurahman got his position, he thought that the same game and things in Jijega “the Somali way of looting and corruption” can be there in Addis Ababa and he tried to implement his past experience and negotiation skills “corruption” with the business community, as well as Amarouch, Tigrains, and also Arab and Indian investors in Addis Ababa. Based on that dirty game, lack of education and skills to understand EPRDF language and office requirements, and also personal and personnel conflicts and interests with Tigrains “the key brokers and dealers” in the trade offices and customs at the federal and regional, relatives of Meles Zenawi proposed dismals of Abdurahman  from his position. However, due to the involvement of this man “Abdurahman” in some dirty files (i.e. human crimes, genocides, corruption, etc) with Tigrains, the federal government decided to send him to the region, so they can keep him there through Liyu Police body guards, and control his movement and commutations.

There is Kiswahili proverb, which says “mtoto wa nyoka ni nyoka”, which means, the child of a snake is a snake. Therefore, the crime and corruption team; Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed, Abdi Mohamed Omar, and General Abraha Wolda are snake behind this case, but with different aims and purposes. When Abdurahman arrived in Jijega he advised his friend, the Regional President (Abdi Mohamed Omar) the worst the Tigres can do, which is to put the Ph.D. holders and qualified Somali officials (Dr. Suldan Wali, Dr. Ahmed Shiekh, Omar Haji, and others) in the regional government offices on the throne.  Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed is the person who proposed Meles’s monument in Somali Regional State, Jijiga. In 25 August 2012, the name of the only hospital in the Somali region (the Jigjiga Referral Hospital), which is under construction, was changed to “Meles Zenawi Memorial Referral Hospital”.  Abdurahman Sheikh Mohammed and Abdi Mohamed Omar are behind this idea.
