 In this paper. I will argue that Somalia has fall down victim to political turbulence and civil war due to an established effort to eradicate traditional Somali culture and customary fidelities based on clanship and ancestry system.

According to Clarke (2018) How political system construction combines real political needs. Somalia’s political and security analyst Mohamed Mubarak believes that former Prime Minister Abdi Saeed’s impeachment shows that people’s expectations do not match reality. (Clarke,2018).

Whereas Webersik, Hansen & Egal, states that the clan is the highest traditional institution, which functionally unites its members according to the genealogical trait, but, above all, for self-defense. (Webersik, Hansen & Egal, 2018). However, Clarke (2018) states that the principle of "4.5 clans" in theory should contribute to the consolidation of Somali society around federal institutions and ensure the involvement of the broad masses of the population in politics, but in practice significantly reduces the effectiveness of the work of state bodies, makes their activities multidirectional.

 For theoretical method, analytical constructivist method is applied as it permits to deal with intricate security situation in Somalia. This theory helps to examine the issue of safety from various perspectives including social, political, and military.
