Hargeisa- Today marks 26th June 1960 when Somaliland gained its independence from Great Britain.


The president of Somaliland H.E Muse Behi Abdi hosted an event at the presidency to celebrate the Independence Day.

After getting independence from Great Britain on 26th June 1960, Somaliland immediately united with Somalia to form the Somali Republic on 1st July 1960.

Somaliland declared restoration of independence from Somalia on 18th May 1991.

Unlike many countries in Africa, Somaliland downgrades the Independence Day but focuses on 18th May, the day Somaliland declared separation from Somalia.
