The Biography of General Adan Abdullahi Noor (Gabyow)...

General Adan Abdullahi Noor (Gabyow) was born in Madogasho town in the North-eastern province of Kenya.

He joined the KAR King African Rifle in 1947 and undertook his military training in the second capital city of Uganda Jinja.

As well, in the same year, he finished his military training and he was taken to Jigjiga, the capital city of Ogadian region in the five zone of Ethiopia where the KAR army had a huge station.

After he finished his duty in Jigjiga, he was then transferred to Kismayo, the capital city of Lower-Jubba region in Somalia when English government turned over Southern Somalia to Italy 1950.

General Gabyow was among the last British troops taken from Kismayo and sent to Yanyugi town in the central region of Kenya. In 1951, he was among the British troops who sent to fight in Korea until 1952 and he was then sent back to Kenya.

At the same, in the same year 1952 after the King George of England died, he was among the African troops sent to Britain to crown the Queen Elizabeth1st and that he was the soldier from Kenya.

In 1954, he went back to his station in Kenya to rejoin the KAR who were fighting with the Kenya frontiers army known as “MAW” who was looking freedom for Kenyan country.

General Adan Abdullahi Noor “Gabyow” went to Somalia in 1970 after he escaped from the Kenyan authority and he was a major in the Kenyan army.

Soon after he arrived in Somalia, he was appointed to be the head of a new police station called” Bootiko” and later on called “Halane military training station” where he became a senior Colonel in 1976 and he stayed there until 1979.

However, General Gabyow became an important member of Mohamed Siyad Barre’s regime after the military coup occurred.

After being the head of Halane military training station for a while, General Adan Gabyow became the defense minister of Somali army later.

After two years, as a result of the conflict between him and President Mohamed Siyad Barre, General Gabyow was finally arrested.

The arrest of the defense minister alarmed the people of Somalia specially his own people who are based in the Jubba regions and the animosity between the president and the General got stronger and soon after the president realized that people were unhappy about the arrest of the General, Mr. Gabyow was released without random in 1991.

General Adan Abdullahi Noor “Gabyow” continued his politics in Somalia. After the civil war broke out in Somalia, he became the leader of Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM).

SPM was a political movement party which was founded in Jubba regions in Southern regions of Somalia when the bitter civil war erupted.

General Gabyow made political alliances with some of the Somali faction leaders such as the second interim president of Somalia, Ali Mahdi Mohamed.

Ali Mahdi and General Gabyow were among many Somali faction leaders based in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa who opposed to General Mohamed Farah Aideed who was controlling in Banadir region.

In conclusion, the former defense minister, General Adan Abdullahi Noor Gabyow died in Nairobi Hospital after he contacted stroke disease and he was among the candidates for the presidency of Somalia in the Somali reconciliation conference taking place in Mbagathi outskirt of Nairobi.

After a day later, his body was flown to the Middle-Jubba region capital town, Bualle where he was buried.

Many of his Somali political partners accompanied with his body to Bualle. General Gabyow left eighteen children behind in the earth. May God rest his soul in the eternal paradise?
