Abdikadir Mohamed endorsed to succeed his late father Yusuf Haji
The late Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji’s son has promised to carry the leadership mantle left behind by his father.
Abdikadir Mohamed, who is known to many as Abdul Haji, spoke at a Garissa hotel where he was endorsed by two major clans of Abduwak and Aulihan, a day after his father’s clan of Abdalla endorsed him.
Several leaders among them Garissa Governor Ali Korane and former National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale attended the ceremony, collectively endorsing the late Senator’s son.
“Yangu ni kufuata amri na kutoa ahadi ya kwamba niko na viongozi wetu na tutashikana na wao,” said Abdikadir.
Governor Korane, on his part, stated: “Wale wengine ambao pia wanataka hii kiti ni watoto wetu…tutazungumza nao tuone ya kwamba huyu kijana wetu ameingia kwa hiyo kiti unopposed.”
“In memory of our leader, our great son, in memory of a man who served this country, we have unanimously agreed (to endorse his son),” reiterated Duale.
