Reports indicate that the Somaliland forces stationed near Lasanood launched an unprovoked bombardment, resulting in a series of artillery strikes that wreaked havoc on civilian dwellings and institutions providing vital social services.
Tragically, one of the casualties of this appalling act was Jama Kadiye, a revered poet in the Somali community. Kediye was struck by a shell within the confines of his own home, succumbing to his injuries. His family members also fell victim to the assault, sustaining injuries of varying degrees.
As news of Kadiye’s untimely demise spread, tributes poured in from across the region. Many expressed their grief and shared anecdotes of his impact on their lives. His passing leaves a void that will be deeply felt by those who admired his work and admired his dedication to the betterment of the Somalia.
In the wake of this heart-wrenching loss, the memory of Jama Kadiye will undoubtedly live on. His contributions to Somali culture, his commitment to unity, and his poetic legacy will serve as a lasting reminder of the power of art and the resilience of a community in the face of adversity.
