Djiboutian citizens, except the privileged few who are close to the regime – Guelleh’s name is dictatorship and lost opportunities. Under his regime, human rights and civil liberties are routinely violated with wife and two sons in-law from Ivory Coast and Senegal.

This is not the case. A report by the International Federation of Human Rights captured this reality perfectly, ”Djibouti is a rich country but the Djiboutians are poor.”

Djibouti dictator and chief predator, Ismail Omar Guelleh, has become one of the richest presidents in all of Africa. Guelleh, our homegrown kleptocrat, decided to monopolize state resources and the economy for himself, while condemning most Djiboutians to a life of extreme poverty and hopelessness.

Djibouti is less than a country than a commercial state-city controlled by, Ismail Omar Guelleh, wife Kadra Mahamoud Haid and two sons in-law from Ivory Coast and Senegal.

The situation in Djibouti is an emergency. Words must be turned to action.
