I arrived at my voting station which is 160km from Mado Gashi the evening of Election Day. Then spent the night outside in the freezing cold because in a desert it is colder during the night. I was assigned a duty to safeguard the votes of our governor Ugas Sheikh-Mohamed. And his deputy governor Abdirashid Yussuf Abdinoor. Which I did to the best of my knowledge and my powers. I did not eat for more than 30 hours. We got less than 100 votes, this went to the books and memories of many. They will remember this very date. I learned several lessons which I will conclude in this article.
The town I was voting in is called Macheza, the non-locals always confuse it with Manchester. Macheza is in Lagbohol South, Wjir South. Lagboghol South has an approximate population of 24,295. The Ward area in square kilometres is approximately 4,051,50. Read more on what happened to me.
