Somalis Envisage Peace from Djibouti Talks


Small and private industries are mushrooming in Mogadishu with the growing hope for the rebirth of Somalia as a result of the ongoing peace meeting in Djibouti.

Ordinary citizens are also painting and redecorating their houses in an anticipation for the forthcoming government for Somalia after ten years of anarchy and civil strive.

Administrator of a noodle factory recently built in the capital city, Dahir Mohamud Nur, said the prevailing peace and the demands of the local markets in Somalia for the Italian noodles have encouraged them to invest into this project.

The culture of Somalia's former colonial power, Italy, is emerging in Mogadishu, as the first emerging small factories seem to be concentrated on the Italian style foodstuffs.

There are also some other Italian food factory recently came into being in the war-torn country, producing spaghetti with imported wheat.

A medium-sized plastic plant has only now got out of its trial period, producing shopping plastic bags.

As the small industries and businesses prosper in Mogadishu, hundreds of people have also started refurbishing their houses and painting them.

Owing to the envisaged peace, many of the public transport buses earlier made blackened metallic shells on wheels for looting proof are now being reincarnated with new spare parts such as windshields, new tires etc.
