She regretted that the committee could not tour Kiunga and Ishakani as they retreat to write a report. Kiunga and Ishakani borders Somalia. The government has banned trade between locals and businessmen from Raskiamboni in Somalia. “We used to buy fish from Raskiamboni but had to stop after the government’s ban,” said Ruweida. Kiunga Ward Member of the County Assembly Babaad Aboud said the committee should visit and meet the people to get views if it is to write a comprehensive report. “If the House committee doesn’t go to Kiunga and Ishakani, then the report will be half-baked. The committee must visit the area as planned,” said Babaad.
