How did it start? And why did it fail?

I'm sure there are those of you who have a lot of knowledge about this issue. Please share it so we can know our history and pass it on to the next generation.

As for me, both my grandparents were jailed. Baba Abdurahman Bahar shaikh, and baba Durri Abubakar served time when those hararis who participated in this movement were jailed.

In the jail where Hajj Abdurahman bahar shaikh was staying in they were deprived of meal and water, except for enjera and salty water, which was served to them very sparingly just to keep them alive.

One time a pigeon flew into the prison cell. Within few seconds the pigeon was no more. The starving Harari prisoners tore the pigeon to pieces and ate it all. Some of those who were unfortunate only got a feather of the pigeon... and they sucked the blood out of it.

Also, at the same prison one of the Harari prisoner was dying from thirst, and the rest wanted to save him so they collected their urine and saliva and kept him alive. (I modified this portion after the interview with Hajj Ahmed Khalil)

I don't know what happened to Hajj Durri in his prison cell. He never did talk about it, nor did i ask him about it. But when he was in jail Haile Selasi's soliders did take over half of his house and they use to live there. Not allowing any member of the family to go from one side of the house to the other. There was a kitten that was locked up in one of the rooms, in the side of the house where the family was forbidden from going. The kitten meowed and cried until she died of hunger. So i was told by my grandmother Fatuma Barkhadley, whom we affectionately call uma Kud...

This is just one aspect... and there was more that happened, which I will write about in the future, insha'Allah.

Do you have a kulub story u can share?

While in DC for the July event, I was fortunate to interview Hajj Ahmed Khalil on July 4th, 2005. He was one of the prisoners during the Kulub movement. You can watch a portion of the interview by clicking at the link below.

You are most welcome brother. I believe it is our duty to know our history, and to pass it along to the next generation.

I want to thank you on behalf of my father who appreciated so much, the fact that you put the interview on your site for everyone to benefit and learn the facts about our History. I also want you to know that we Hararis appreciate your determination, hard work and courage and Inshallah wait to see more and more of your work.
Please do not be discouraged by fools like guests who come here unidentified because obviously they have nothing going for them, and have done nothing for the community but whine and create problems. Please Never let them get to you.
Thank you and may you be blessed and always have the strength you need to continue your work.

One Love.



Ameen to your duas, and thank you for your kind words. Insha'Allah, I will continue to work for the cause of Harar until my last breath. Rest assured that I will not be discouraged or distracted by those who throw unsubstantiated accusations. I know myself and my intention, which is to serve Harar and the Harari people. That knowlege is sufficient for me.

As part of my effort to document the history of Kulub Movement ... I am looking for names and pictures of all the Harari prisoners that were arrested at that time. We know that there were more than 400 Hararis that were arrested. Most were freed after short duration in prison. However, about 81 were sent to 3 different locations outside of Harar and were arrested for a longer period.

It is very important that we preserve this aspect of our history because time is a formidable foe. Therefore, if you have any info where your grandparents or parents were arrested, and more importantly if you have any pictures ... please email it to me at malasay@malasay.com with their full name, and they will be included in the video documentary. Even if you don't have a picture... their full name will be appreciated.

The first Shaheed of the Kulub Movement. He was martyred due to torture, malnutrition, and other abuses.

Any history about the battle of ?Dahkata?, where Kulb members from JigJiga and Gursum (fugan beara) engaged in battle with Hilaeselase troops? I heard there was some skirmish in ?Wachale? too.

I haven't heard about it. Maybe our brothers and sisters from Gursum can help us find this history.

However, in 1964 there was a movement by some of those who were imprisoned during the kulub movement to join a military organization known as "Hizbullah" that was formed in Ogaden by a Somali Shaikh that was teaching in Harar. However, word leaked out and those who were responsible for this activity, as well as those who joined ~ 19 Hararis in all ~ were arrested and sentenced by the military court of Haile Selasi to various years of imprisonment in addition to public flogging in Faras Magala.

The flogging never took place due to a large demonstration held by the Harari public against the flogging. I interviewed one of the prisoners, the current chairman of the Addis branch of HNL. Insha?Allah it will be available to the public in due time.
