Ex-Somali refugee defeats a Somali minister.

A man born in a refugee camp in Kenya has defeated a Somali minister to become a member of parliament.

Thirty one year old ABDULLAHI SHEIKH ABAS who grew up and was educated in Dadaab, the world’s biggest refugee camp, in north-eastern Kenya was picked by an electoral college to be a federal MP.

He was up for election against Information Minister MOHAMMED ABDI HASSAN.

Somalia has been holding indirect elections since October to renew its parliament as the country remains too dangerous for a national vote.
