The late Abdullahi Yusuf: warlord and hardman of Puntland politics. In December , two weeks after he was forced to resign from the presidency, Yusuf was given political asylum by the former Yemeni dictator, Ali Abdalla Salih. When Yemen descended into fearful signs of Somalisation — the phenomenon of civic disorder and state collapse — Abdullahi Yusuf headed to Abu Dhabi where he had secured another political asylum. Typical of many post-war African biographies, the memoir tells us a completely different story of Yusuf than that known by Somali public. The US reportedly supplied him not just with cash, but with confidential information used to weaken his adversaries, some of whom had the important characteristic of holding distinctly anti-American sensibilities. Regarded as a hostile to democracy and justice, it comes as no great surprise that when Yusuf was selected by clan elders to lead Puntland — a clan-based mini-state administration in northeast Somalia — he soon shifted from warlord to dictator.
