Somalia Needs a New Order

The abysmal performance of the Somalia state in the area of development since independence in 1960 has been largely attributed to the quality, nature and character of the leaders  that the nation produced during these six decades

From the first post-civil war Transitional National Government (TNG), established through the 2000 Arta peace process to its successor transitional governments and the subsequent post-transitional governments, Somalia has been going through a prolonged dismal performance by the public leadership. Even though Somalia has arisen from a failed state to a fragile state, the elite bargains and governance process has failed to produce able and competent public leadership.  In recognition of this failure, Minbar initiative were formed and anchored by ethical and mission-driven Somalis interested in the founding of a a civic platform  as well as the development of new ideas around strengthening Somalis’s value systems, empowering inclusivety  and reform of the political norm and  the electoral environment.

Minbar initiative is a part of the the Values pillar of #ChallangetheStatesque, has the goal of producing leaders in Somalia, by building a massive base and pipeline of a new value-based and disruptive thinking political class with the requisite knowledge and skills to lead effectively

Minbar initiative integral to the fulfilment of the #ChallengeTheStatesque mission to elevate the Office of the Citizen to its rightful place in our nation and develop a political class of servant leaders.
