Somali president congratulates Somaliland on hosting international book fair

Somaliland is hosting its 11th international book fair with a delegation from Rwanda being the guests of honour at this year’s event.

The fair, which started on Saturday 21 July, ends on Thursday and is seen as part of Somaliland’s embrace of literature.

Somaliland broke away from the rest of Somalia in 1991 but has gone without international recognition since.

Somalis have a long oral storytelling tradition that celebrates poets like Mohamed Ibrahim Warsame, also known as Hadraawi.

Hadraawi is considered by some to be the ‘Somali Shakespeare’.

Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed has congratulated organisers of the fair on holding the event in Hargeisa, Somaliland’s capital.

Last year, South Africa was the guest country.
