Somaliland poet jailed for three years in crackdown on writers

Naima Abwaan QoraneIn my mind I had the idea that Somaliland was a haven of peace in the eye of the storm. A place where life florishes and where literature is being celebrated at festivals. But a crackdown is going on in this part of our continent. The poet Naima Abwaan Qorane was sentenced and will visit the prison for an extended time. She is not the only one, also Mohamed Kayse Mohamoud was sentenced. More about these change in events in this article
