have turned Mandera North into a killing field
from Rhamo indicate that more than nine people,
most of them Garre, were killed near Banissa and
Rhamo areas follows the dispute in Moyale, where
the Oromo attacked the town of Moyale, Ethiopia.
As reported by Garre online the Degodia have
been planning attacks in Mandera County to
disrupt the election by killing. According Mr.
AbdulKadir Mohamed, the MP for Mandera central
was interviewed by BBC news. He stated
categorically that he has supported peace
between Degodia and Garre. But that was simple
tongue in cheek for he recently participated in
a Degodia meeting by Mr. Burhaan during his
campaign to collect funds. According to
intelligence they collected a staggering $50
million dollars. According to our reports
collected from Oromo prisoners interviewed by
the Ethiopian Military the culprits who invaded
Moyale were paid wholesomely by Mr. Burhaan who
was recently in Negele, Ethiopia.
The Degodia have planned a deliberate removal of
the Garre population from Northern Mandera by
force or intimidation, in order to render that
area homogenously Degodia. based on the many
reports Garre online news has been describing
the policy and practices conducted by Degodia.
Yesterday the planned ethnic cleansing was
carried out by means of murder, rape, sexual
assaults, animal raiding and the forced
displacement of the Garre civilian population.
Garre news online has on many occasions
reported the complex Degodia provocation, and
the deliberate militia attacks and threats of
attacks on Garre population of Mandera North
areas along with wanton destruction of property
to the Government of Kenya to no avail.. .
Due to these many provocations Garre people
have earned the right to defend themselves. the
Garre are peace loving people who aim to live in
peace but when the population has been pushed to
unbelievable limits, the Garre will fight to
save their children.
Garre have absolutely no
representatives in Kenya Government. Mr.
Mohammud who represents Mandera West has been
outnumbered by anti-peace elements that
represent Wajir and Mandera counties and become
voiceless when it comes to curtailing culprits.
We therefore appeal to the Government of Kenya
to take stern actions against Degodia for
making Northern Mandera unlivable. We insist on
the arrest of Mr. Burhaan who is a pathological
warlord who has hands soaked with our blood.
