About Togane's Official Website
Togane.org is the home of Prof. Mohamud Siad Togane’s work including poetry, articles, and speeches in text, audio and video.
“A native of Somalia and a 1969 graduate of Eastern Mennonite College, poet Togane is a rare breed of believer, an amalgam of many roots and influences. His urgent and sometimes profane essays - many of them cast as long polemical poems - address political and social issues that remain volatile for Somalis and other Africans. Clannism, political corruption and religion are frequent topics when Togane addresses his countrymen.”
Mohamud Siad Togane has been living in Canada since 1973. He has became a Canadian citizen in 1978 and now resides in Quebec.
