    NAIROBI, Kenya –
    It's a gruesome display seen many times over the years in Mogadishu: The bodies of dead soldiers dragged through the streets. Somalis angry over 20 years of violence say they do it in hopes of driving out African Union forces.
    The latest incident happened Thursday, when the body of a fighter who appeared to be a member of the AU's peacekeeping mission was pulled through the streets by a rope. The spokesman for the country's most dangerous militant group, al-Shabab, also displayed a body alongside documents that identified the man as a Ugandan soldier.
    "Today we are celebrating the death and blood of your sons," Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage said at a news conference Thursday.
    Another resident, Ahmed Hassan Nur, 21, said he has dragged six foreign bodies since 2007, including Ethiopians, Ugandans and Burundians.
    "The Africans killed my brother with their ruthless shelling," said Nur, referring to the AU forces.
    Asked if he felt any shame after dragging bodies, he said: "No. Absolutely not. I'm happy with what I did."
    In February, Islamist insurgents brought the bodies of nine AU peacekeepers to an area that has now become the preferred site for displaying bodies, Bar Ubah, which lies near the city's busy Bakara market.
    Islamists then tied ropes to the legs of the corpses and asked a mob to drag them, but with one caveat.

    "Don't touch them because you don't know if they have diseases," said Abdihakim Yahye, who participated in that day's dragging, quoting the militants.
    Yahye said that as the mob moved through the city, its numbers grew as idle residents joined in. "They were falling over themselves to drag the corpses. You can't imagine how happy the people were. You would think it was a holiday," said Yahye. "My mind told me to drag them and humiliate them. I was happy to do that. I dragged them because I harbor strong animosity and grudge against them."

    Mnaosympathize na Al Qaeda na Al Shabab haya wasomali wanawaita "Africans" sababu wao they do not consider themselves as Africans. Wajeshi wa AU wanakula kibano huko.

    Nakumbuka nchi hii waliwahi kuwaachia wenyewe na according to media, stability ilikuwa imeanza kupatikana mpaka walipovamiwa na Ethiopia. Nchi hii ni ngumu saana kutawalika, the best way ni dialogue through somalis. Wao wenyewe waongee na watawale na ikiwezekana walinde amani wenyewe.

    Huwezi kulazimisha tafsiri ya demokrasia kwa kila nchi. Model iliyofanikiwa kufanya kazi sehemu fulani si lazima ifanye kazi sehem nyingine pia. Hawa watu, hawawezi kuishi kwa western definition of democracy. Ndio maana unaona kuna Somaliland kule north, wale wamekuwa stable through their own initiative. Wale askari Au pale somalia wanalinda uwanja wa ndege na serikali si raia tena. Na hapo unategemea nini kitatokea kama si kulinda kusiko na mwisho?
