Roba Sharu Duba reason to join politics
Roba Sharu Duba said the reason for quitting the high-profile job of city clerk to declare his candidature is to foster inter-communal harmony in Moyale through the establishment of credible conflict resolution mechanisms. “Moyale has not known peace in its history and security is paramount in my political agenda,” he said.
Roba Sharu Duba on Marsabit insecurity
In September 2013, Media reports attributed to the Marsabit County Governor, had indicated that some three people were killed in an inter-community conflict following an attack on Lorries carrying goods near Moyale town along the Moyale-Marsabit road.
Roba Sharu Duba stated categorically that it was misleading to say the inter-community conflict arose from an attack on Lorries carrying goods. The fact of the matter was that initial attacks and killings were orchestrated, planned and executed by one community militia from Ethiopia, which had crossed the border into Kenya.
The evidence was established from the identification documents found on the bodies of some of those who were killed and those injured in the attack on a Manyatta at Antutta.
One of the people who were injured during the attack by this militia had been identified as an assistant chief from this community in the neighboring Ethiopia. The said chief was injured in the initial fatal attack on a Borana Manyatta at Antutta.
