A self appointed Garissa County Diaspora Committee met in London on the 26th of March to appoint one of the attendees chairman of the aforementioned entity. The numbers were quite small and the attendees were all middle aged men.
I got in touch with one of the organizers but as of yet, he hasn't responded to any of my e-mails. Because of this apparent lack of transparency, I cannot report on what was discussed in the meeting but sources who were at the meeting claim the event was mainly social. It was an opportunity for Garissians in the London area to network and meet others from their hometown.
As far as the legitimacy of the chairman elect is concerned given the lack of diversity and the committee's lack of numbers, those questions are yet to be addressed by the organizers. We will let you know as soon as we get answers to our e-mailed questions.
Here are some pictures from the event:
