Djibs/Friends,

More than one thousand of Djiboutian workers have been on strike for a month and 7 days. They started this because they heard the American contractors side by side with their Djiboutian sub-contractors known as “Hadhigle” decided to reduce the number of Djiboutian nationals working at the camp. The problem is that we, Djiboutian nation, do not really know what is going on behind the scenes.

All we have heard so far are rumours. There has been a dramatical shift in the attitude of most people because of these rumours and baseless information. It says Americans are inflexible and arrogant. They are the ones who created this problem in the first place to put pressure on the Djiboutian government and tell the president to stop persecuting the opposition leaders. Another rumour says that the American ambassador in Djibouti is supporting the opposition. This angered the regime who contacted Washington to complain about her behaviour. The rumour goes on to add that Djibouti asked Washington to replace the ambassador with another person who could understand the situation better and therefore would cooperate with the ruling party!! Washington’s reply was a big “NO!”… This resulted in a hidden boycott and a deliberate siege on the Camp by the Djiboutian authority to punish Americans!

Rumours after rumours…Nothing but rumours are what we hear in this and the real victims are our fellow citizens. 1200 families are going to be without income this month. At least 10000 (Ten thousands) Djiboutians will have no food, no electricity, no water or Eid gifts for their children. It is really sad to see both American and Djiboutian authorities not shouldering their moral and humane responsibilities towards these families.
Years ago, I have been so optimistic about the American Presence here. I even wrote an article on Djibnet.com/Mabraze/Forum General. Its title was “American Army, Sustainable Development in Djibouti.
Should I say I was mistaken?
I don’t know. But I am hungry for the truth about what is going on at Camp Lemonier and so are the families of those workers.
Better future for our kids.

lAs they say in French “seuls ," les imbéciles" , ne change jamais d'avis” I’m glad to hear that you have changed your mind about the American presence in Djibouti, one need to examine closely, who remain intransigent when it comes under privilege Djiboutian in general and in particular those who are under brutal military administration in camp Lemonier, is Piggy or Uncle Sam?

According to internet magazine Stars and Stripes published: July 10, 2013. , the military entered into a $35 million contract with base support services provider KBR, which took over responsibility for operations from a previous contractor. KBR planned to cut its base operation support staff from 1,000 to 600 workers, who conduct a range of activities such as janitorial, laundry and food service work, according to a U.S. Navy spokesman, who said the previous contract, cost was $80 million per year. That plan prompted the remaining 600 workers to strike.

KBR to accept a contract with less than half and to provide the same support services can only be accomplished with slave labour in Djibouti 48 hrs 6 days a week with no benefit. On top of that, when nearly half of them are laid-off the remaining half have to do twice the job they were doing before under a difficult circumstance.

There are also more than 100 or 10% of the work force are from other countries and operating under different Xadhigleh without the knowledge of local government and under which jurisdiction they operate is in question? These third country nationals neither pay taxes to the government nor do they have a proper work permit to legally work in the country.

Lt. Cmdr. Rob Johnson, a Navy spokesman said “It’s my understanding that some third-country nationals have been coming in to fill some of those jobs,” he also said that he can’t speak for KBR and their way of thinking, in an other words they have unfettered access to bribe or distort money from unregulated local employment agencies.

KBR spokesman John A. Elolf said in a written statement. “KBR is in contact with the U.S. Navy regarding this situation. KBR is working closely with the Djibouti Minister for Labour and Minister for Foreign Affairs and is confident a resolution will be found in the near future,” US govelrnment and its military leaders are not obligated t0 hold direct to resolve stalemate with Djibouti Enterprise negotiation with talk to Chief of Djibouti Enterprise.

Although in long term moral and economic damage outweigh the benefit of having US military base in Djibouti, but in short term, reducing the military expenses by less than 50% without advance notice, however translates a short fall $3 to $4 millions local economy, this is a huge blowback to Chief of Djibouti Enterprise, this may also means that the little friendly dictator is no longer indispensable.

The rumour goes on to add that Djibouti asked Washington to replace the ambassador with another person who could understand the situation better and therefore would cooperate with the ruling party!! Washington’s reply was a big “NO!”… This resulted in a hidden boycott and a deliberate siege on the Camp by the Djiboutian authority to punish Americans!


This is no longer a rumour; as you hinted Washington’s reply was a big “NO!” and Piggy, Chief of Djibouti Enterprise is so far holding the picket line firm about 100 employees every day not bad!!. It’s a showdown between Chief of Djibouti Enterprise and foot soldiers of Uncle Sam, whether the US intransigent attitude can hold or Chief of Djibouti Enterprise would cave in remains to be seen.

Mr King (1) to propagate a rumour or not propagate a rumour that is not the question, the actual issue at hand is how to inhibit slave labour in Camp Lemonnier; this has been going on since the inception of Camp Lemonier. The government of today Djibouti Enterprise then failed to create a proper legislation to curtail the erratic behaviours of certain Xathigleh and arbitration board with properly defined jurisdiction, Djibouti Enterprise rather preferred to adopt Kafil approach (Saudi style Xadhidleh), The early well known Kafils were Mr Boreh and Yassin Cowlo (DjibClean).

The US proxy agent to undermine Chief of Djibouti Enterprise (their little friendly dictator) is KBR. KBR spokesman John A. Elolf can be seen talking out of both sides of his mouth; on hand he is in agreement with Lt. Cmdr. Rob Johnson, a Navy spokesman to cut the works in Camp Lemonnier almost 50% or half, and on the other hand his company KBR is negotiating with representative of Djibouti Enterprise Mahamoud Ali Youssouf and Abdi Hussein with 50% pay cut.

According to RTD, US government is planning to lay-off 50% of camp Lemonier employees and remaining is expected to get 50% salary cut that is even worse than the initial speculation of only 50% lay-off. This is either it is a propaganda or they don't the business terminology of Shakespearean language or perhaps it was an offer behind the close door negotiation.

It is a double-hitter for John A. Elolf of KBR just simple businessman to entertain two ministries at same time --foreign affair have no treaty with the US government and ministry of labour have no employment legislation from the law maker, it is an Enterprise with aims and objectives.

Citation

“Since our country hosts a number of foreign military bases that use quite often to foreign workers. This is the case of French and Japanese military bases and others. Unfortunately, it turns out that the quota of foreign workers who are limited to a rate of between 2 and 4% for skilled workers were greatly exceeded in the case of Camp Lemonnier. These foreigners, whose number is estimated between 500 and 600 workers are mostly Filipino, Indian, Malay ... “


Finally Djibouti Enterprise has admitted its short–fall but for the damage control, the numbers of foreign employees have been under reported. According to US government the number of foreign workers is as twice as Djibouti Enterprise reported. This means that there is no inter-departmental co-operation, one can easily observe from this stand-off between Djibouti Enterprise and US government that there is no coordination between ministry interior that suppose to know how many foreigners are in the country, Labour and foreign ministries, they all update Chief of Djibouti Enterprise not among each other. The failure and success depends how one man process all the information.

Ulike Jay Leno who took a massive 50 per cent pay cut to save staff jobs on NBC’s The Tonight Show after 20 employees were laid off. Is Piggy, Chief of Djibouti Enterprise ready to sacrifice his lavish lifestyle to subsidize about $ 2 millions per year for Camp Lemonier workers?

Piggy hold yet another World Record, he is the first sitting Head of State that has actually participated striking workers to show his solidarity.But what most poor striking employees of camp Lemonier don’t is that, he is the one who sold their right to sue (like US’s Fourteenth Amendment) to a foreign government, therefore he is obligated to look after striking employees and their families.

In Amharic, Elmi BEE BILLAWAA should have known who is this TILLIQOO QULAA

Former Labour minister H. Bahdon, Son in law of Chief Djibouti Enterprise (piggy) and brother in law of attorney general of Djibouti Enterprise (MaCky). He was appointed as Labour minister during the last strike, and he wasted no time for just quickly show-off that he is the man for the job. He immediately called for meeting of the various employment agencies (Xadhigleh) and employees representative, with quick mediation everything went back to hunky-dory.

H. Bahdon fail to recognize that there is a deep-rooted predicament in a Labour department under his leadership such as , recurring strikes in camp lemonier, lack of legislation that governs employment agencies, ever growing illegal foreign employees, creating arbitration board that deals when right of Djiboutian employees under the US and other foreign military jurisdictions are violated, just to name a few.

Notre actuel Ministre de la Télécommunication et gendre de la premiere Dame. Cette photo date d'il y a quelques mois et il était à l'époque Ministre du Travail. Mais comme à son habitude il fait l'esbrouffe en se prenant en photo avec des stars américaines comme un plouc parvenu.

Shame on you Mahamoud Youssouf where is the Djiboutian flag, who are you representing, is it the Government of Djibouti or Djibouti Enterprise? This is political fiasco.

50 days strike is too long by Djiboutian standard
50% layoff is too many and un realist figure
50% pay cut of the remaining is draconian action

Djiboutian Information Agency reported that the Djiboutian workers at the US Naval Expeditionary Base Camp Lemonier returned to work Wednesday (August 7th).

Mahamoud said Djibouti's strong partnership with the US government helped facilitate the employees' return. In other words Uncle Sam interest outweighs $2 millions or so per year,

This is the only time that Piggy has shown some skills of micro management leadership, although we don’t know what was agreed on in details yet, it is quite clear the treat from KBR to cut 50 % of the workforce and the remaining 50% to expect a pay cut is put on hold.

Department of Defence representative, Commander of the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa Major General Terry Ferrell, and the U.S. Ambassador to Djibouti, Geeta Pasi, to take lead role in resolving the issue could be seen as a tactical retreat from previous position.
,
As it appears, this no longer a rumour, the US government attempt or pre plane to undermine Piggy has backfired and Piggy gained his15 minutes fame that he was desperately looking for.

Unlike Franchy, the US knows how to use and deal with naive dictators like Piggy, in this particular case, it's a clear economic suction, perhaps to serve as a catalyst in looming leadership change in the country.

According to WikiLeak, US military have helped Piggy to plunder Djiboutian national economy ,they were prepared to look the other way, so long as their strategic interest was served, at the many occasions directly and indirectly the military were negotiating with Piggy as if the State of Djibouti belongs to him and him only.

The plundered wealth, plus countless US facilitated IMF loans, is a direct result of Piggy's political scores against his political opposition and recent strike stand off against US military base. He told the media he and his Enterprise will be helping the striking workers and their families.
