Left army and unsuccessfully contested seat in Dujis constituency in 1997, after which he moved to Fafi and won in 2002 with KANU and retained seat in '07 also with KANU

Says introduction of multi-party politics saved area from oppression, which has suffered from a 30 year state of emergency (the constituency as part of the northern frontier district with Lamu and Tana river attempted to secede to Somalia after Kenya got independence leading to the 1964-67 shifta war) he says this ended after the Arusha declaration of 1967 but was followed by the state of emergency which lasted until Moi ended it in 1991

Says he will use CDF to improve infrastructure (Garissa district only has 6km of tarmac road in the town), education (wants to deploy more teachers at Bura secondary, the only secondary school in the constituency and double streams to admit more students in a constituency with approx 130,000 people!) and health.

Says constituency and northern
Kenya require affirmative action and that local politicians should agitate for change and a share of the national cake and fair treatment.
