FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hodma Gums & Resins Supports President Bihi’s Call for Peace in Sanaag

ERIGAVO, Somaliland (April 20, 2020) -- Ahmed Mohamed Dhunkaal, Chairman of Hodma Gums and
Resins Export Company, today expressed support for President Bihi’s efforts to quash long-standing
political hostilities in the country’s eastern region of Sanaag.
"On the eve of Ramadan, and in the face of COVID19, people need to come together in peace to help one
another. All of Somaliland’s citizens -- our wives and children -- are being threatened by an invisible
killer,” said Ahmed M. Dhunkaal. "The virus does not chose victims based on clan affiliations or family
connections. We need to put our differences to the side and work together, so we survive this pandemic
and prosper. As President Bihi says, this is the time for all Somalilanders to unite, not fire bullets. We are
calling on our traditional elders to help put an end to the hostilities, permanently.”
Hodma Gums and Resins Export Company is the official distributor for Hodma Co-operatives, the largest
supplier of Frankincense in Africa. A family-owned organization with a prestigious history going back to
1896, Hodma Co-operatives represents almost half of the Frankincense plantations in Somaliland and
about 10,000 families in Sanaag. Hodma farmers produce several types and grades of resins for
cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, perfumes, edibles and the essential oils industries. Two species of
Frankincense, Boswellia carterii and Boswellia frereana, are only found in Somaliland. Because of their
unique chemical profiles, they are considered the finest, most sought-after varieties in the world.
Dhunkaal is a Frankincense land owner, livestock farmer, researcher and founder of Somaliland
Frankincense Nursery in Aloolweyn, Sanaag. He is an expert in Frankincense and Myrrh tree taxonomy
and the author of an upcoming book about Somaliland’s gums and resins farming heritage, Kingdom of
Frankincense.
