Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.
Surely, we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return. It is with profound sorrow that we have heard the death of Haji Yousuf Issie. He passed away on August 30, 2019, in Ayssaita, Afar region. Haji Yousuf was one of the most prominent citizens in Afar of his time. He was a very trusted aid to the late Sultan Alimirah.
