River Dawa in Gedo

Postby mudugawi » Mon Nov 22, 2010 12:39 pm

hey guys, do any of you know any additional information about this river on the border of gedo's beledxaawo region with kenya. Gedo is blessed walahi, 2 permanent rivers in a dry area plus gold, gas/petroleum and other rich minerals. If only this region and other regions in the land could get rid of Al Sheytaan. This is what I managed to get from wikipedia:

Dawa River
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dawa River

Basin countries Ethiopia Kenya Somalia
The Dawa River is a perennial river in southeastern Ethiopia. Rising in the mountains east of Aleta Wendo, the Dawa flows south and east to join with the Ganale Dorya at the border with Somalia to become the Jubba. The river forms part of the Ethiopia–Kenya border and part of the Ethiopia–Somalia border.
The river valley is relatively wide, with gently sloping sides of exposed bedrock. The lower part flows through a valley which would be classed as a relatively young erosion cycle. Prospectors have found gold along the Dawa between the Awata and Kojowa tributaries. The titanium minerals rutile and ilmenite were found by geologists working for the Texas Africa Exploration Company in 1958.

Here is a youtube link about the dawa river in the Manheera region of Northeastern Kenya:

It does. It meets it just north of Dooloow.

Only in Somalia----actually just Gedo---will you see a river surrounded by desert. :|

Its REALLY, incredibly simple to irrigate. The people in the region are sitting on the key to endless wealth, why even own land if you're going to marginally use it? Gedo is also the only region in southern Somalia where there are camel herders------why do you even need a camel on a farm? :|
