Denial of independence
Dr. Hussen attributes the causes of the Somali tragedy to the economic subjugation left by Italy, the seizure of indigenous land, and the use of that land for the cultivation of crops, thereby depriving the country of its ability to support itself. He points out that Italian use of the institutions of indirect rule, such as clan chiefs, notables and elders, stagnated the country, while the fascist-trained local militias known as “banda” were integrated into the army and police creating the stage for instability. He added that Italy had left behind a system of government based on favoritism and corruption and pitted one clan against another just to prove how divided the Somali people are and the prospect of a Somali nation.
While Italian colonialism bears much of the blame, so do the Four Powers, who used the disposition of the former Italian colonies to assert their strategic interests. And when the Four Powers could not come to an agreement, they turned the matter over to a polarized UN, which not only denied Somalia immediate independence, but also threw it into the lap of its colonial ruler Italy as a trustee for ten years. contrary to the wishes and well-being of the majority of Somali people.
Dr. Hussen graduated from the University of Rome with a dottore in civil engineering. At the same university he completed a doctoral degree in traffic engineering. He also holds a master’s degree in construction from Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia. He worked for 15 years as a project engineer in East and Central Africa building roads, animal isolation facilities, primary health stations and schools.
