It is President Donald Trump, believe it!

By Bashir Goth | Special to Gulf News

The world can live with the familiar flaws of the American leadership, but it is ill-prepared to see the best qualities of the American democracy thrown over the cliff.

Phew! It is over folks. Breathe. The American people have stunned the world and ridiculed the pollsters. It seems only Donald J. Trump correctly read the heart of the American people and hence he is now the commander-in-chief of the world’s greatest power and not Hillary Clinton as the world hoped for. The email scandal has drowned her and with her deprived the world of a steady and experienced hand in the White House.

A tawdry selection by United Nations by Bashir Goth | Special to Gulf News



The appointment of a fictional character as the world body’s ambassador for women’s empowerment is yet another example of an institution that has lost its soul.

When I first saw the news that the United Nations had appointed the fictional Disney character Wonder Woman as an honorary UN ambassador for “the empowerment of women and girls”, my first reaction was that when the UN failed to choose a woman as its secretary-general, unlike what was widely anticipated and hoped for, a woman who could have been the face of womanhood, motherhood and humanity and an inspirational role model for all girls around the world, the UN then magically waved its wand and abracadabra enlisted a fantasy woman to celebrate women’s empowerment.

African women have nothing to worry about Buhari’s insensitive comments by Bashir Goth


Nigerian President Buhari’s deplorable comments about his wife only serve as a poor reflection of his ego — they do not take anything away from women’s exemplary contribution to the continent’s history and legacy

At a time when issues of sexual harassment and women’s rights dominate the narrative of the United States presidential race, it was unfortunate for an African leader of the most populous, most ethnically diverse and most culturally rich country in the continent to insult his wife and in fact all African women before the whole world.

“I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room,” said President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, in response to his wife Aisha Buhari’s criticism of his government’s performance.

Waddani ma dumin doonaa dayrka Baarliin ee ku guban dadka Gabooye? by Bashir Goth



Waayadan waxa muuqata in dabaaldeg iyo damaashaad badani u dhacayo xisbiga Waddani oo u eg xisbi sal balaadhan oo dad badani hiigsigooda dawladnimo,hankooda siyaasadeed, iyo himilo horumarba ka dhex arkayaan.

Xisbi walibana marka shirweynihiisa iyo ololihiisa lagu jiro wuu fadalo cad yahay. Waa loo shuumaa, loo sahan tagaa,  iyada oo qof walba ka dhex raadinayo dantiisa oo ay u badan tahay cadaalad oo aad moodo in ay noqotay wax sida cawdalgasiirka uun la maqlo laakiin aan cidina ogeyn meesha ay taalo. 

Haddaba bulhanka iyo guulaanka waxa had iyo jeer lagu iloobaa oo indhuhu ka dul boodaan meelaha iyo dadyowga u baahan in diirada la saaro oo ahmiyad gaara la siiyo, waxana lagu mashquulaa arrimo cid walba ogtahay oo daleeda yaalay.

Waxana la illoobaa qaar badan oo aan mudan in diirada la saaro. Arrimahaa aniga ra’yigayga waxa ugu mudan xaalka dadka Gabooyaha oo waayahooga iyo caddaalad darrida haysataa ay tahay mid cid walba ka dheregsantahay.

Haddaba Xisbiga Waddani waxa ugu weyn ee uu kuwa kale kaga duwanaan karaa, ummadda  iyo caalamkabana indhahooga ku soo jiidan karaa waa sida uu ka yeelo dadka Gabooyaha oo uu saami miisaan leh ka siiyaa kuraasta xisbiga, gaar ahaan madaxda xisbiga. 

Waddani weli dawlad maaha, laakiin berri buu dawlad noqon karaa haddii uu guulaysto, markaa go’aamada shirweynihiisa ka soo baxaa waxay muraayad u noqonayaan dawladda uu dhisi doono.

Arrinta ugu weyn ee lagu qiyaasi doonaana waa in uu jeexo waddo cusub oo cadaaladeed iyo in kale. Waxana kow ka noqon doonta sida uu ula dhaqmo arrinta dadka Gabooye. Waa ma noqon doonaa xisbigii jabiyey gidaarkii Baarliin ee ku gudbanaa dadka Gabooyaha, kana hor taagnaa in ay helaan xuquuqdooda muwaadinimo.

Tolow ma la arki doonaa reeraha Gabooye oo Waddani ugu heesa: “Cambar daatiyo, ciil nin kugu sugay, ood u curataa, cawo badanaa.” Way dhici kartaa hadday cadaalad ka helaan Waddani. Haddaba reer Waddaniyow maanta ayey jano dagataye, ha il duufina.

Syria a major challenge for the new UN chief by Bashir Goth

Security Council members often see the secretary-general as public servant than an independent political force, and a fall guy for when they mess up monumentally.

Now, whether the new secretary-general is going to be an obedient punching bag or a moral leader is to be seen, but the biggest task on his desk will be the horrific war in Syria and the worst humanitarian crisis it created. Three seasoned and world class diplomats, Kofi Annan, Lakhdar Brahimi and Staffan de Mistura, have all failed to find a solution to what Annan called “mission impossible.” Not because they were incapable men but because as Annan underlined, they lacked the unified support of the Security Council.
