The Somaliland Representative office in Brussels, Belgium and the Somaliland communities in Belgium, in the Netherlands and Luxembour ( the BeNeLux countries ) convey condolences first, to the family of the late Honorable Haji Abdi Hussein Yusuf ( Haji Abdi Warabe ) who passed away yesterday in Hargeisa. May God give them patience over this tragedy. Secondly, the Somaliland Representative office and the above mentioned Somaliland communities in BeNeLux countries convey condelences to the Somaliland President, the Government, the House of Representatives and particularly to the Upper House ( the Guurti ) of which, the late Honorable Haji abdi Hussein was a prominent member as well as the whole people of Somaliland.
There is no doubt that Somaliland will profoundly miss his wisdom and his ealderly forsight.
The late Honorable Haji Abdi was a man who was highly respecful and with highly admired personality. His political and social background and experience were unparalleled. Since the 1940s and earlier, he always played a historic role in the improvement and progress of Somaliland and its people. He is well-known also for the spectacular role he played in the early 1990S, during the proclamation of the independence of Somaliland and in the reconcilation of Somaliland clans whom he urged to rebuild, what was then,
a broken Somaliland society and towards peace and stability of the country. Somaliland and other Somalis will always remember him for his wise advice and his high interest for Somaliland and all other Somali communities to live in peace and to make development and progress.
We all pray to God for Haii Abdi Hussein towards paradise. May God rest him in peace. But we should remember always his wisdom and wise advice.
