"As a result of this manifest weakening of the Wardei they were attacked on
all fronts and it is no surprise that they could not defend themselves but had to flee for their lives. According Turnbull, 'the main contlict was in the east; and the actions fought at Afmadu, on the Deshek Wama, and at EI Lein are still- spoken of by the tribe
Ogaden were at this point led by the grand old man of the Abd Wak, Abdi Ibrahim , the Sultan, while there were a number of ' invasion commanders under him: Abdi Ibrahim was noted for his bravery and skill in war strategy which eventually led to the Ogaden dominance in the Jubaland. His remarkable leadership qualities are still remembered to this day by the Ogaden. Notable among his commanders were Magan Yussuf, the Sultan of the Mohamed Zubeer Ogaden, and Hassan Bejan of the Abdalla/Ogaden
Having displaced the Wardei from the Juba region the Ogaden were not
content to settle
down but continued their southward expansion since the loot from the Wardei was an appetizing reason to continue their raids.
having virtually conquered and suhordinated the Galla to Somali domination. According to Turnbull the attack lof 1865 by the Somali when the Wardei were weakened by plague was so unexpected and so violent that the Wardei were utterly broken by it.The Ogaden migration towards the Tana in the 1 860s and 1870s, was one of struggle to wrestle control of the land from the Wardei .The Ogaden were firmly estahlished along the banks of the Tana River by the 1870' s,
Scattered through the fighting was, hundreds were killed; those who survived either fled to neighhouring tribes or became serfs to the Mohamed Zuheir, the Telemuggeh, or the Magabul. Many were sold as slaves in the markets of Lamu, and Zanzibar.
Had it not been for the arrival of Imperial British East African Company rule in 1885, the Wardei would have ceased to exist as a community with a separate cultural and political identity."
no granpa, it was Ogaden that conquered jubbaland/ NFD/ southern most somali first and foremost, then marehan came peacefully after their Ogaden cousins already cleared out todays southern somalia/ northern kenya and moved into gedo, with cawlyahan ogadens, even gedo wasc alled gedo cawlyahan until siad barre decided to make it its own gobal, then harti came after marehan, thus jubbaland was comeplet darood land dominiated by Ogadens,
TO YUSUF idoor and other marhan kids and non daroods who say Ogaden forced himself into jubbaland becasue of siad barre air life, suck my Ogaden fingers,
The Darod/Ogaden invasion : an account of the movement of Darod/Ogaden Somalis into Jubaland and the Northern Frontier District of Kenya.
Author: Richard Turnbull
read some hisotry to lying langaabs, Ogaden was conquering jubaland before siad barres great great grandfther was born,
no need to lie or be jelous, Ogaden will forever fight for kismayo and jubbaland, he will never loose an niche, next time anyone try anything and we will bring Israeli if necessary, we will never lose an inch of our land becasue of some boon and idoor fairy tails about how Ogaden came to somalia in 1975, suck my ********
every Ogaden sublcans like cawlyahan, cabdalal, reer mohamed, cabud waq, maqaabul (makahil and sacad maqabul), bah gari, all tolomoga, mohamed subeer etc. were conquering jubbaland 140 years before somalia was created, or kenya for that matter,
marehan came to jubbaland waay after OGaden, but was before harti,
The Marehan tribe occupy the north-east part in the neighbourhood of Serenleh and Dolo. From Italian territory they have emigrated into Jubaland during the last twenty years, and are still inclined to be turbulent. They are possessors of large numbers of camels, and of horses also in lesser number, but, unlike the Ogaden, they do not rear cattle extensively. Probably their numbers do not exceed 5000.
this book was written in 1913, thus marehan came after 1893, and their entire race numbered 5,000, we can also see they did not settle in kismayo or any of the 2 jubbas, but only in Dolo/gedo,
siad barre brought mareahn to kismayo in 1987,
The Herti Somali occupy the coast, Of the three sub-tribes of the Herti, the Midjertein [Majeerteen] are the most numerous in Jubaland, while the Wasengeleh are but few in number and the Dolbahanta still remain to the east of the Juba. The Herti do business as traders as well as rear cattle. Their numbers are about 3000.
look at the entire harti in 1913, waa only 3,000 and only reside in todays kismayo,
b]The Ogaden Somali are split up into five important sub-tribes are the Mohamed Zubeir, the Aulihan, the Abd Wak, the Abdallah, and the Magharbul. Two other sub-tribes are of less importance, namely, the Her Mohamed and the Habr Suliman. It is remarkable that the so-called Mad Mullah, Mohamed Abdullah Hassan, belongs to the very unimportant tribe of the Habr Suliman (Bah Gari). Of the Ogaden in Jubaland the Mohamed Zubeir are the most influential and numerous. They occupy the Afmadu district as far south as the Deshek Wama, and own immense quantities of cattle. The Aulihan tribe frequent the district to the west and south of Serenleh. They are rich in camels as well as cattle, and the Juba river is their main water-supply.[/b]
Ogaden is the most numberous, the first that came as somali and wiped out the wardey, no mention of boran, only wardey, no dir, no hutus, Ogaden was the first that came, saw and conquered, then our darood cousins followed, generations after us,
Cawlyaha/Aulyahahn also was first to resdei in todays gedo, thus gedo being called gedo cawlyahan, even in gedo mareahn was langaab to ogaden,
The Abd Wak and the Abdullah tribes occupy the districts of Rauia-adi and Lorian. The latter of these tribes wander as far as the Tana river seeking for water in the dry season. The Abd Wak are the more numerous, and might be able to put 1000 spearmen and riflemen in the field.
look at this, marehan and harti waa so minorty, Ogaden sub sub sub clan Cabudwaq/ Abdwak alone can filled 1,000 riflemen, not even mentioning their foot soldiers, or horse cavalery, eyt whole mareahn were 5,000 and harti
and lastly, in 1913, generations before somali was created, ONLY DAROOD LIVED IN JUBBALAND< REST WAAA REFUGEES
It is, perhaps, necessary to repeat that only Darud [Darood] Somali are to be found in Jubaland"
read for yourself, or better yet, if yuo hate landheer Ogaden or Darood might in poltiical affairs,
