As the County is gearing towards the celebrated annual Lake Turkana Cultural Festival from May 2018(https://m.facebook.com/ltcfmarsabit/?tsid=0.688844332003165&source=result Its time to bring back home Ahmed's exhibition mounted infront of the Kenya National Museums in Nairobi.
This is to petition the president of the republic of Kenya H.E Uhuru Kenyatta, ministry of Tourism in conjunction with the Lake Turkana Cultural Festival Committee and County government of Marsabit to bring back the Ahmed's remains to improve the tourism sector in Marsabit.
Let the natives in Marsabit feel and appreciate their endowement.
