Secondly, I love the fact that the pavements are being rehabilitated and rebuilt. Many African countries don't even batter an eyelid when it comes to pavements, hence the people in the road. Good to see Somalia so forward thinking!
One thing that really works in the city's favour is that its streets are 'straight' and already lined with trees which really adds to their appeal once the streets/pavements are paved. All that's missing is lane markings, but I should think that's the last thing they'll do.

The apparant lack of drainage does concern me... or has the road been designed in such way that rainwater will drain into where the trees are planted.

Mogadishu in 1960s

This is Mogadishu in 1960s. As you can see the roads are flooded. If you pave all the roads without a drainage system, this is exactly what is going to happen again! I know that the Federal government or the city of Mogadishu don't have the resources to build a drainage system at the moment but they should seek help from donor countries to support this project. Sewage and drain systems are must haves for any city let alone a capital city!

How often does it rain in Mogadishu?

If it's not very often then perhaps the authorities don't see it as a huge priority

Something should be done though.

It rains in the two rainy seasons every year. Enough rain to always cause flooding anyway.

Turkey is constructing four rain water reservoirs in four districts in Mogadishu. Got this from their twitter page (Turkey in Somalia)



Woow, this is just amazing and really would help with water shortages, agriculture and life in general. Speechless.

I don't know how we could ever thank them enough.

okay i honestly welcome all these developments.

BUT im worried somalia is only going to reinvest all its assets and wealth in mogadishu, the same mistake the pre 1991 goverment made. I just hoped all this aid and project developments get extended to some of the larger cities and even Somalias key industries(fish sector,agriculture and livestock). I mean when i come to SSC i click on somalia and you can see literally the topics and projects are MOSTLY on mogadishu, im just concerned that the Somali goverment isnt considering areas other than that it has complete influence on.

But in saying this i still welcome the rebuilding of our Capital City back to its former glory.

I 100% agree with you Ali, I see where you are coming from. But, Mogadishu is receiving all this attention now because it has only recently received peace and the government for the first time in YEARS actually controls the whole capital. During the years Mogadishu was on lockdown only other cities such as Hargeisa, Galkacyo Beledweyne, Burco, Bosaso and Garoowe have pleasantly expanded and developed in great ways. I think it is only right that Mogadishu receives a bit of the limelight for now, I am sure other cities will get their opportunities. The only thing that worries me about this is a mass exodus to Xamar without lack of resources and planning for everyone...We definitely don't want Slums. But thankfully we do not have a large enough population for this to be a permanent fixture...

I think rather embarrassingly, our "government" does not have the resources to spread out to other places let alone Mogadishu. All the development is either our kind friends the Turks or the diaspora.

I really don't see the issue. The vast majority of the investments made are by private money which has a right to go where they want. This isn't Siad's time when it was the government funnelling all the money from everyone and using it only in the capital. The biggest business potential is there so naturally that's where the money goes.

And the onus also goes to lazy city leadership in regional cities not investing in themselves to make themselves more attractive to their diaspora communities. Some of these cities have literally nothing. I'm not going to name names but certain cities are run by idiots.
