Somaliland: A Relative Story

Sunday 29 May 2005 21:30-22:15 (Radio 3)

In 1991 the northern part of Somalia separated itself from the war-torn south of the country and declared itself the independent republic of Somaliland. After nearly 15 years of relative peace and democratic stability, its citizens insist it is a model African nation - yet the international community refuses to recognise its right to exist.

Shaheera Asante tells the extraordinary story of Somaliland, through the eyes of its people and of the Somali expat community in Wales, many of whom devote themselves to helping their relatives in nurturing the fledgling state.

Duration:

45 minutes
