Halima Ware Duri

Halima first vied for the Galole parliamentary seat in 1983 while still a teenager and came second. As a young Oromo (Borana) girl, that was unheard of. Before she resigned to join politics, she worked in the provincial administration as a District Officer. Her experience in the provincial administration made her a competent peace campaigner and negotiator. She would like to help her constituents gain access to water, bursaries and scholarships for learners and improved healthcare.
