Flag of somali

The Somali Region of Ethiopia consists of six administrative zones and is inhabited primarily by ethnic Somalis. The region was previously known as the Ogaden Region, which covers about one third of Ethiopia's total land area. It is located in southeast Ethiopia and shares borders with Somalia to the south and east, Djibouti to the northwest, and Kenya to the south. Somalia has been an integral part of Ethiopian history for many centuries. The Somali Region is home to a number of Somali sub-ethnic groups, including the Awer intadde, Belledeer, Garabitiise, Gaerrilaheer and others. Parts of Somalia also form part of Ethiopia's ‘greater Somalia’ – which includes parts of Northern Kenya and eastern Uganda. This area was traditionally claimed as Somali land between 1887 and 1960 when it was still under Italian colonial rule following a treaty setting out certain territory boundaries. In recent years, political tensions between the Ethiopian federal government and regional authorities in the Somali Region have been deepened by conflicts over resources (primarily mineral-rich ores)in the region. The government accuses some opposition leaders in allied rebel groups such as ONLF (Ogaden National Liberation Front) of seeking increased autonomy or even independence from Addis Ababa; meanwhile rebels have accused the government of exploiting natural resources at unfairly low levels for profit in order to fund military efforts against rebellion . As such, a number of ONLF leader and coalition member have reported difficulties accessing essential services provided by public organisations within their own territories due to their rejectionism of senior governmental officials . In spite of ongoing political tension between rebels and state forces in the region however life in much of Somali Region continues today with local communities often self-organising ancient traditional practices such as nomadism (peregrine pastoralism) throughout the drier seasons, whilst many other sedentary populations are known to remain residentially static year round - typically making use out arable land near markets where cash crop revenues can be maximised regardless seasonality trends inducing mobility cycles .. Despite these hardships however livelihoods are slowly becoming more secure as access to commercial banking slowly becomes more viable in many areas - allowing citizens opportunity save what is earned reliably without fear incarceration nor misplaced funds or disputes associated dubious or underground banking mechanisms previously found be attractive only due those lack any occupational documentation i.e identity papers
