Leading international firm seeks formal adoption of motions from Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states in support of Somaliland as a nation

Fencorp Global, a leading international firm, has launched an ambitious campaign to promote the recognition of Somaliland within Southern Africa. The campaign aims to secure formal adoption of motions to recognize and support Somaliland as a nation by Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states and their parliaments.

The campaign has started in Lusaka, Zambia, where Fencorp Global is lobbying various Members of Parliament to raise a motion for the government to support Somaliland at the African Union, United Nations, International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and other international forums. The campaign also seeks to have the ITU grant Somaliland its own country code.

Somaliland, which declared independence from Somalia in 1991, has functioned as a self-governing state with a well-functioning democracy, a peaceful and stable society, and a growing economy. However, despite its achievements, the international community is yet to recognize it as a sovereign state.

The campaign aims to change this by highlighting Somaliland’s economic and political progress, as well as its strategic location as a gateway to East Africa and the Horn of Africa. Somaliland hopes that recognition by Southern African countries will bolster its efforts to seek recognition from other African and international bodies.

Fencorp Global COO, said the campaign is a vital step towards ending the isolation of Somaliland and unlocking its trade and investment potential.

“We believe that the people of Somaliland have a right to self-determination and deserve to be recognized as a sovereign state. We are excited to be spearheading this campaign to promote Somaliland’s case for recognition among the SADC member states and their parliaments,” he said.

Fencorp Global plans to hold a series of high-level meetings with parliaments, governments, and business leaders across Southern Africa to raise awareness about Somaliland and build support for its recognition as a sovereign state. The campaign will also involve engaging with civil society groups, academics, and other stakeholders to garner wider support for Somaliland’s cause.

The campaign by Fencorp Global is a bold move that could potentially change the dynamics of the African continent; however, the success or failure of the campaign remains to be seen. Nonetheless, Somaliland believes that every step towards recognition brings it closer to realizing its dream of statehood.
