Yusuf Haji's son Abdikadir Mohamed has promised to carry on with his father's leadership mantle after he was endorsed for the Senate seat that Haji occupied. Haji was the Garissa senator from 2013 until his death last month. His son Mohamed, popularly known as Abdul Haji, has been endorsed by both the family and the clan to take over from his late father. Abdul on Monday said he was ready to assume the seat and execute the duties of a senator. This is the first time in ages that all the clans have come together to support one candidate for a political seat.
