Wajir governor Ahmed Mukhtar has outlined his achievement since he took office as he appealed for calm following tension that has characterized the county.

Operations at the county headquarters were paralyzed on Tuesday after ousted governor Mohamed Abdi stormed the offices and forced his way claiming to be the legitimate holder of the office. He was carrying a court order.

Speaking during the 100 days in office launch on Saturday, Mukhtar said leaders should sober up and behave responsibly.

“We all have a role to play in reducing the unnecessary tensions and getting our great county back on the development track,” he said.
