Fadumo Dayib is a Somalian refugee turned presidential candidate who is proposing to have a chat with the Al-shabab terrorist group if elected into office in the coming general elections.
“I will sit down and talk with Al-shabab leaders in order to solve this problem once and for all.”
The professional nurse, currently vying for the number one position in Somalia was born and raised in the heat of the Somalian civil war. Today the beautiful and intelligent woman has beat her refugee profile and is bent on showing millions of Somalian people the way to proper living.
Since 2005 Fadumo returned home to contribute her quota to the rehabilitation of her fatherland. Thus she has carried out several health care assignments in partnership with the UN.
Despite the imminent political insecurities and gender/religious discrimination, the articulated and subtly resilient mother of 4 is out to give it her all in the 2016 general elections in Somalia; this will be the first democratic elections held since 1967.
The 42-year-old has shunned all threats in pushing through with her political ambition. Adding to that she sees the need to “sit down” with the Al-shabab terrorist group in Somalia to iron things out. In a radio interview, she shares her belief in a peaceful resolution despite the aggressive and violent nature of the group. In recent times their attacks have ravaged several communities in Somalia.
“They are our sons and brothers and we need to talk to them about this problem affecting us, nothing wrong about that,”
The only cause of worry however is if the extremist group understand the language of ‘dialogue’.
Fadumo burns with the passion to develop her country. She has earlier stressed that her core interest is centered on national security, economic development, education, youth unemployment, upholding the rule of law -human rights & good governance- and of course, children and women empowerment.
