Letter to the Prime Minister from SRSG Kay on the passing of former PM Abdirisak Hajji Hussein

Excellency,
It is with great sadness that I learned of the passing of former Somali Prime Minister Abdirisak Hajji Hussein on 31 January 2014.

His integrity and commitment to justice and good governance inspired generations of Somalis.

From his early years as a member of the Somali Youth League to his service as Prime Minister and his role as Somalia’s Ambassador to the United Nations, former Prime Minister Hussein showed himself to be an exceptional man, a leading nationalist who devoted his life to serving his nation.

His legacy will live on, and it is my hope that it will motivate a new generation of Somali leaders dedicated to peace, unity and public service.

Please accept, Excellency, my sincere condolences to his family and to the Somali people, and the assurance of my highest consideration.

Nicholas Kay
Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia

Mudane Ra’iisal Wasaare,

Waxaan si naxdin iyo murugo leh u maqlay geerida ku timid Ra’iisal Wasaarihii hore ee Soomaaliya, Cabdirisaaq Xaaji Xuseen oo geeriyooday 31 Janaayo 2014.
Sida sharafta leh ee uu ugu heelanaa caddaaladda iyo maamul wanaagga ayaa hamigelisay Soomaali badan.

Laga soo billaabo sannadihii ugu horeysay ee uu ahaa xubin ka tirsan Ururkii Dhallinyarada Soomaaliyeed (SYL) ilaa iyo markuu noqday Ra’iisal Wasaaraha iyo kaalinta uu soo qaatay isagoo ah Danjiraha Soomaaliya u qaabilsan Qaramada Midoobay, Ra’iisal Wasaarihii hore, Cabdirisaaq Xaaji Xuseen, wuxuu muujiyay inuu yahay nin ka duwan dadka kale, oo ah daljire naftiisa u huray adeegga dalkiisa.

Dhaxalka uu ka tagay wuxuu noqon doonaa mid waara, waxaana rajaynayaa inuu dhiirigelin doono jiilka cusub ee hogaamiyeyaasha Soomaalida ee u heellan nabadda, midnimada iyo adeegga guud.

Fadlan, Mudane Ra’iisal Wasaare, iga guddoon tacsi tiiraanyo leh ee ku socota qoyskiisa iyo dadka Soomaaliyeedba, waxaan kuu xaqiijinayaa qadarin heerka ugu sareysa ah.

Nicholas Kay
Ergeyga Gaarka ah ee Xoghayaha Guud ee Qarama Midoobay u qaabilsan Soomaaliya
