Today, I had the opportunity, for the first time in over 20 years, to vote for another candidate to take over the mantle of leadership and spearhead the projects & progress I had made both in terms of development and peaceful coexistence of communities forming the GT Constituency.

I have represented them ably in the legislature as a lawmaker and in oversight roles. It is their vote and prayers that made me serve as the Deputy Minister of Livestock, Majority Leader and now, CS – Ministry of Defence.

Tonight, all indications are that Victory is for the UDA candidate Rtd Major Mohamed BARROW Dekow. The people of Garissa Township have again said NO to politics of division, local parties that belong to the kraals.

Hongera Major Dekow, the incoming MP. Hongera UDA.

We have another new MP, making us the majority in the National Assembly.

Thank you the people of Garissa Township for the seamless transition and an end to clan politics.

Now, wheel the BARROW!”
