From the Whispers from the North fraternity and staff, we wish to relay special gratitude to Waso JIMA which is an acronym for Jitha MaliyuBorana clan for their milestone gesture that shall transcends for generations to come. The prayer was organised by the Jima secretariat and top honchos in Isiolo town which was presided over by H.E Jima President Mzee Jattani Wako Wario.


President Wako was received with pomp, colour and grandeur during his arrival which was like no other. Several Borana clans attended the prayer meeting. The Jima supremo urged the clan and by extension other Boraan clans to co-exist amicably in terms of political, economic, social and religious activities of all the Boraan communities living in Isiolo. He further, reiterated on the proper mechanism of socialization, education, religious expression, peace maintenance and social cohesion that promotes the principles of equality and freedom.

The mammoth gathering

Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking and other Boran clans should emulate them. Unity is strength, division is weakness. Unity is the irreducible minimum strength, when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.

Unity without verity is no better than conspiracy. So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole community notwithstanding our woes which we shall overcome with the broad and consultative cohesion. Our Abuyoot/Sothowaan have set the pace and trends.


Indeed it is about time we revive our age old tradition, customer and practise where communal concerns is the central pillar that hold us together and everything be looked at with the other person’s Interests in mind because it’s Individuals put together who can make or break the community cohesive fabric survival lies with each other.

Where there is bold righteousness and unity in the heart, there is beauty in the character. When there is beauty in the character, there is harmony in the community. When there is harmony in the community, there is order in the society. When there is order in the society, there is peace in the Borana nation.
