nation experience of one of the continent’s longest and devastating
civil war that destroyed the universities of the country he and people
like him had in mine to study. He travelled to Khartoum, Sudan and
started his undergraduate degree in geography at the University of

Al-maftuuxa University in Libya where he obtained his law degree in
1998, ten years after his secondary school.
Sharif returned to his country in 2000, a time Somalia was under
warlord’s control, a time two friends in Mogadishu neighborhoods could
not visit each other as a result of clan separation and social mistrust.

profile, rich or poor, man or woman, white or black or clan superiority.

Jubba secondary school since 2004. He is a simple man with humanity and
respect, who never discriminated people regardless to race, religion and
