wa qaraan ,qoomiyad weye farabada "Ogaden is a nation consist
of multi-nationalism" ).
Most of us might not know or able to understand
what the word (ogaadeen) stands for so in this research or notion
of mind, I’ll try to breakdown vividly my understanding
in addition with reliable sources /references.
definition, that how Wikipedia articulated
Ogaden (pronounced and often spelled Ogadeen; Somali)
is the name of a territory that are predominately inhabitant
to Ethnic Somalis, which geographically lies west of Somalia and
southeastern of Ethiopia.
2nd definition let’s look briefly the origin of Ogaden
as a term.
ogaadeen has meaning in Greek language, it means a high level
land surface (plateau)
Ogaden is a plateau with an elevation above sea level around
1,5000 metres In northwest ,falling about 300 metres along the
southern limits and River Shabelle valley. The areas with altitudes
between 1,400 and 1,600 metres are characterized as semi-arid;
receiving as much as 500–600 mm of rainfall annually.
Ogaden is No longer a tribe.
Its unease task to emphasize corrupted minds what Ogaden means
, none can refuse every certain people that live together have
divided in different sub-families in such cases , Ogaden have
Ogadens of Ogaden are approximately around 3-6 million &
blessed a land enriched with all natural resources (Diamond ,
Raw product for industry, Animals of all kind etc).
If we impose to the reality (the Origin phrase) , Ogaden is well
known tribe in the Somali society, where they have historical
records in Kenya, Somalia and even the eastern Africa , some of
the mentioned gentlemen in the world history are for instance,

related with, why am I saying this? Ogaden isn’t a tribe
but a grassroots of nation that consist of different many tribes,
similarly to the other nations of the world.
Features contribute name giving.
In this sub-topic we will try to elaborate clearly, how names
are given, who gives the name, what are the necessary aspects
to consider before naming?
If we glanced back very quickly most of the countries of the
world were either colonized or colonizers of the olden days and
given names accordingly.
According to how names are given, I will take few countries &
how their names match with its geographical occurrence.
Here below I will mention few steps that are considered for name
- Geographical occurrence
- Famous river that passes the region
-The specific thing that the certain area is enrich with
and so On.
These are some little reasons considered when giving names.
Take for example :
Jordan, Washington (USA), Saudi Arabia, Nairobi (Kenya), Ogaden,
all these names existed; they’re either a name of an individual,
climatically expression or place.
Jordan (river) , Saudi (Family), Nairobi (Coldness) Ogaden (Family).
During the time of the colonial err, the British, the Italia
& the rest of the colonizers, whenever they capture (discover)
a territory they used to name either by its inhabitants or where
it falls geographically.
Ogaden Is a Nation
What is being a nation?
A large aggregate of people united by common descent, history,
culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory.
Ogadenia wa qaraan ,qoomiyad weye farabada (Ogaden is a nation
consist of multi-nationalism)
As a stated explicitly Ogaden have possession a territory that
fully of all sort of natural resources, which is occupied forcefully
by the Ethiopia.
Ogaden Territory is 3 times bigger than some of western countries,
Middle East, its density is approximately around an area 179,252
km2 ,(69,210 sq mi).
Note: the ogaden long ongoing political,social controversy must
be dealt in a proper manner in such that the world witnesses peacefully
environment without disputation amongst other people rights.
giving self-determination to ogadens will never result decline
to financial calculationsbut instead it will rise opportunities
of allocating resources & decreasing unemployments through
out the region.

we play our part, its said when you fulfill your dreams is when
everyone shows his/her interest behind your success, keep the
struggle alive your day will hopefully come.
