Dr Mukhtar Thanks The People of Garissa For Their Moral and Material Support
Dr Aden Mukhtar the father of the shot former finance executive called for a rer yahye meeting at his house to thank the family and all Garissa county residents for their prayers and assistance extended to his family. The meeting presided over by the subclan’s leader known as ugas Haret thanked those who attended the meeting and expressed gratitude to all those in support of Idris who is in ICU. Dr Mukhtar thanked all the people who extended their prayers and singled for praise former Minister Hussein Maalim Mohamed, former CGS General Mohamud Mohamed and the Majority Leader Aden Duale who is also the area mp for their tireless support. Duale is said to have cleared the medical bill for Idris who is still in ICU. The communique from the meeting included that the family of the shot Idris incurs half a million shillings hospital bill a day.
It wa alleged that those in attendance expressed disappointment in what they said was withdrawal of a shillings 999,000 cheque drawn by the county governor. They added that close relatives of the shot former finance executive have been fired from the county administration. This comes a day after the Sultan of the Abudwaq Mr Dekow Sambul banned a prominent elder Mr Aden Gamadid from attending any Abudwaq meetings or deliberating on matters concerning the clan. Mr Gamadid few days earlier accused the Majority Leader of being behind the county governor’s woes and made unsavoury remarks against the area mp.
The alleged withdrawal of the cheque by the governor has drawn anger among those attending the meeting some alleging that the governor also tried to sabotage the meeting called by Dr Mukhtar.
We could not reach both the governor or the area mp and their team for comment.
