Dire Dawa is an Ciisa city and back in menilik's era there was an cisse suldan who controlled the city against abbasinyans and maybe french?

Jigjiga in the other hand is a Darood Kablalax Absame Jidwaaq Bartire city, all other clans are just guests there.
If all your Darood have the same thought process as you do, we can coexist just fine then. It is a huge land we can leverage for good. Let us free it from the Habashi first, though.

PS: I welcome all Somalis in all Somali lands, guests or not.

MarsinQorahay you are confusing the Ciise Suldaan with the Gurgura Ugaas.

Honorable, Ugaas Gadiid Buux of the Gurgura

Jabuutawi you should've corrected him instead of agreeing with him. Stop spreading lies. The Gurgura even have a woreda named after them.

Runahaantii as a non Gurgura I can even be honest about that.

Biggest Dir there are Gurgura, then Ciise and then Gadabuursi and others.

Somaliyeey runta ha la sheego

and Jidwaag(bartiire) are largest Darod in Jigjiga waa run, that I can agree with.

Oh so the majority is gurgura? i always thought cisse was the majority in dire dawa after being in dire dawa several times at my aunts house?
But for real tho the city dire dawa is taken over by oromos, the dir really needs to considering fully supporting the elections on getting back lands between jigjiga and dire dawa, with that i think we can push them out of dire dawa, and i heard that it was gurgura with the former weak isaaq president of kilil 5 fault those lands got into the hands of oromia state.

About the gurgura ugaas, any sources you could perhaps share with me on his history and the war on the abbasinyan invaders?

To my knowledge, the largest Somali clan in Dire Dawa has always been Ciise. Just look around the terrain outside the city. Ciise has the largest degaan. Gurgure, Gadabuursi, Daaroord and Isaaq are there as well. There are Harti, Mareexaan, Gerri Koonbe, and Absame who have significant presence there as well. Not sure why people are not mentioning Karanle Hawiye as well. They have a presence there as well. You will find the representation of all major Somali clans there, however, Ciise has the largest Somali representation in that town.

sheekh or buuhoodle.
Buuhoodle? :leon:

Why not, it's a Somali city right?
Ismail,

Samatar reerka waa la xidid, yuuna kuu gambanin. Him living in VA, being HA, and wanting to live in Buuhoodle gave me the full story.

Man, I realized Somalis are small people. I could pinpoint majority of them so easily in cyberspace. As long as I've been to a city, I could easily hear about the majority of the people, and meeting many of them in cyberspace has become so easy.

Samtr is from Ohio, HY, & he is related to Dhulos lol

The Ciise are more Somali, stronger, larger, etc...I lived in Diridhabe and I remember my family talking about the Ciise. And we had a lot of Ciise neighbors. So I guess to me Ciise are the biggest Somali clan in Diridhabe.
