Mandera Governor Ali Ibrahim Roba has expressed optimism that the recent election of Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo as the President of Somalia will have a positive impact in not only Somalia but also Mandera County and Kenya as a whole.
Speaking in Mandera town while sending his congratulatory messages to the President, Roba said Mandera County’s proximity to the war torn country.
“I believe with conviction that Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo will contribute immensely to the overall security of Somalia which in return will have a positive impact on the overall security of North Eastern and Kenya as a country” said Roba.
Roba said Farmajo hails from Gedo region that his county borders and understands better its predicaments.
He said a stable Gedo region means there will be minimal overflow of insecurity incidences into Kenya.
The governor urged President Uhuru to give the new President the necessary support for the interest of the region.
