Issa and Gurgura tribes of the Dir clan (who are the native inhabitants) and more recently Oromo tribes have come to make this the second biggest city in Ethiopia. The Gadabuursi inhabit the extreme eastern portion of the chartered city state bordering on Dembel district to the East. Source: Africa Confidentials Vo. 31-32
Allahu Akbar, what an amazing city!

I miss having to vigorously argue with various snetters about their uncanny dislike for oromos on topics like "who does Dire Dawa belong to?"..... "who are the Gurgura?"...."What does Gal mean?" and of course "why are Oromos so useless?". This place is very unique for HOA Blogs and forums.
But to tell you the truth dire dawa is my home, its the same with your love with awdal i guess.
That's in Somalia, it's a different story once you meet the ones living in Harargee.
