MP. Malin Ali Noor, President of Gharri Council
We elected you to represent us, work for us, and
protect and preserve our interests. Now you are
ready to hand over our ancestral land to the
butchers of our people and our animals. This is
outrageous and we are extremely horrified by
your dreadful deeds.
It was Mr. Adan Mohamed Noora who signed off
Mandera East to Muralle without consulting with
us, the people of Mandera County. This is
appalling and beyond belief that the people we
elected to represent us are giving rewards to
the butchers of our people.
It was you Mr. Adan Mohamed Noora who signed and
filed a petition to sign off Rhamo to Degodia in
It was you Mr. Adan Mohamed Noora who signed off
Butte and Ires Theno to the Adjuran.
So, there will be no easy ride for you to finish
our land off. Because, there are other loud
voices too. Therefore, think twice before you do
things that is harmful to the people who elected
Also, it was you Mr. Mohamud Mohamed aka
“Mummad” who authorized the KDF to occupy El Wak
in 2008 that resulted in over hundreds of
innocent people being tortured and killed. Many
more were also castrated and maimed for life.
It is you Mummad and Adan Mohamed Noora who are
campaigning to turn over the Mandera North to
the Degodia against the wishes of the people of
Mandera County. So, let it be known that the
Gharri land shall not be sold for the highest
By undermining the interests of the Gharri
people, you are attempting to fulfil the
Degodia’s dreams of connecting Filtu and Wajir.
So, we are asking you to stop this madness or
you will be forced out by way of referendum.
To the members of the Gharri council of elders,
you will be replaced because you have violated
the integrity of your title and sanctity of our
people’s trusts. You too must stop working
against the people you serve or we will remove
you as well.
To Mr. Mohamed Abdow, please just remember your
campaign slogan and speeches and try to honor
them. Do not violate you oath of office and
respect the wishes of your constituents.
