The governor of Hadhramout broke his silence, directing many political messages to the inside and outside, announcing his clear and frank position on the popular movement taking place inside the governorate, in his first speech of its kind.
And with the political, tribal and partisan tensions that Hadramout governorate is currently going through, in addition to the successive economic collapses, Governor Bin Madi appeared yesterday evening in an interview on one of the Hadrami satellite stations, addressing several hot topics, most of which occupy local public opinion in the governorate.
The first military zone and the deposit port
Governor Mabkhout Mubarak bin Madi revealed, in his interview with Hadramout TV, the position of the local authority on the presence of the forces of the first military region, saying: “If the elements of the first region – belonging to areas controlled by the Houthis – are against his control of their areas, then they must go and liberate their areas, then it is the first, and if They were with him or not against him, so they must leave, and their presence is not welcome, and we have experience on the coast.”
He added, “We did not call for the departure of the first military zone, but for elements in it belonging to areas controlled by the Houthis, and if the Houthis are an enemy of the first military zone, let them go and fight him in his regions, and if they consider him a friend, we do not want a friend of Houthi to be present among us.”
Through this statement, it appears that he is looking forward to military and political arrangements similar to what happened in Shabwa, in terms of emptying military and civilian positions from the influential northerners affiliated with the Islah party and those suspected of having Houthi connections on behalf of southern conference elements as much as possible, and the man did not lose sight of the importance of mentioning the elite and its expansion. It is the goal that any Hadrami should have in mind. He added, “The time has come for all members of the first military region to be from the province, and this is our basic demand.”
On the other hand, this strict stance against the presence of the Northern Forces in Hadramout in the military region and the Al-Wadiah crossing, which is controlled by forces belonging to the sixth region, was met with a softness and welcome to the Barshaid Brigade, where bin Madi confirmed that “the Barshaid Brigade is affiliated with the second military region and obeys our command,” a brigade that has been controversial. Great by the advocates of the independence of Hadramout, the fact that some of its affiliates are from southern regions that do not belong to Hadhramaut, as far as they claim.
The governor reaffirmed this by saying: “The Barashid Brigade is part of the second military region and part of the Hadrami elite. We have no enemies in Al-Dhalea or other governorates of the south, so that we can say to the Barashid Brigade: Go and fight there.”--
Advocates of the state of Hadramout-
As usual in political prudence, Bin Madi flirted at the beginning of his speech with Hadrami feelings of independence and privacy, but his position was decisive on the political interventions that interact within the province led by large tribal figures with a political position, in addition to other leaders accused of having links to the Islah Party, who are making unremitting efforts to support From parties in one of the countries, it seems to impede any future southern gains and impede any stability that the Presidential Council may offer in its current form.
Governor Bin Madi categorically rejected calls for recruitment outside official frameworks, which constitutes a strong blow to the legitimacy of these efforts, which may exacerbate the dispute between the governor and these currents.
With these developments, the position of these forces that seek to obtain gains of their own, for Hadhramaut, or for the traditional opponents of the south, will be extremely embarrassing, as all these forces rely on the tone of the governor’s legitimacy and rally around him, which will put them before two options, either silence or a clash with the governor’s strict position regarding these calls.
position of the alliance
Governor Bin Mabkhout denied what was rumored about his detention in the Emirates, refuting during the meeting the allegations that he was detained during his visit to the Emirates and even mocking them, stressing his great appreciation for the Emirati role in liberating Mukalla, praising the role of the brothers in the Emirates and the attention given by Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed.
The position of a particular government
The governor, Bin Madi, launched a scathing attack on the government of Maeen Abdul Malik, as the governor refuted the government’s abuses and its deception to reduce the percentage of Hadramout from 25 percent to less than 15 percent in the local currency, indicating that the government deliberately dealt with Hadramout in a different way than it deals officially with the rest of the provinces. In a brazen violation of a certain government, but on the other hand, he did not mention what was the position of the local authority, previously or currently, against these abuses, which leaves the field open for speculation, and on the other hand provides a comfortable situation for the local authority in the governorate, as it has shown the main cause of obstruction even if it does not clarify its position and direction. its future decisions regarding these abuses.
Governor Bin Madi said, “Electricity is the state’s black hole, and the government spends daily one million and 600 thousand dollars for electricity in Aden, and one million and 200 thousand dollars for electricity in Mukalla. On the coast of Hadramout, we do not have any electricity for the state except for the Al-Shihr station, and the rest is purchased energy.”
