Editor’s NoteWardheerNews has the pleasure to present an interview with Major General Ahmed Sheikh Farah of the Truth, Justice, and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) of Kenya. The focus of the interview centers around past injustices and gross human rights violations committed against Kenya-Somalis and other Kenyans. The commission formed to carryout investigations on the human rights violations, covers the period after independence, from December 12, 1963 to February 28, 2008. 


The 2007 disputed election between the current Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, and President Mwai Kibaki left thousands of civilians dead and over 650,000 displaced. Important historical aspects covered in this interview include the infamous Wagalla Massacre of 1984, where the Kenya Army gunned down a large number of defenseless Kenya-Somalis.
