    Does anyone know what organisations are represented by the different uniforms in the photo above?

    The first on the left may be the Guulwadayaal, described in Wikipedia as “The Victory Pioneers (Somali: Guulwadayaal) were a neighborhood-level internal security unit active in the closing years of the Siad BarrĂ© regime in Somalia, until its ousting in 1991. Numbering approximately 10,000, they were also known as the “People’s Militia””
