HC Deb 11 December 1912 vol 45 cc442-3
36. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Somali Mullah has occupied Bohotleh and Kaikyo; and whether any of the Somali clans are joining the Mullah's standard?

The SECRETARY Of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Harcourt)

From information recently received from the Commissioner, it appears that Bohotleh is occupied by the Mullah, and that a few of the Dolbahanta and a section of the Gadwein tribes have joined him. I have no information as to Kaikyo.
