Waagacusub Media has learned that Telesom Somaliland gave $650,000 to the Emir of Al-Shabab Ahmed Abdi Godane.

Godane has been part of the company when it was operating under the name of Al-Barakat 14 years ago, but recent evidence shows that he owns 9% of the company’s shares. Insiders say that the shares have been allocated to him in 2012 following an email he sent to the management. "Telesom and two other companies in Somaliland used to give Godane monthly and annual payments, and that is why the Zaad service (MMT) is stil operating in Somaliland” said one of the company officials.

Telesom is the largest telecommunication company in Somaliland, and has a good reputation in providing large network of telephone service, with poor and expensive internet service. It is also a source of income for hundreds of people, and shareholders.

Telesom Somaliland’s CEO is a Canadian-Somali national Abdikarim Mohamed Eid who hails from Isaaq clan, Iidagaleh sub-clan. Abdikarim’s brother is the plaintiff who filed the infamous lawsuit against former Somali Vice President General Mohamed Ali Samatar in US. He has been a member of the Al- Itihad extremists. Abdikarim provided the cost of the lawsuit against Gen. Samatar. The CEO is quiet man, just like Godane who doesn’t talk much, but it is not known whether believes extremism.
