A resident of Dire Dawa town, Assefa Belachew has worked for more than 15 years as a driver. Assefa had traveled throughout the towns of Somali State over the years. The road linking Jigjiga to Kebribeyah, Shekosh to Kebridehar and also Gode is part of his memory. Insecurity had remained a threat to him over the years but now it is over as the Shekosh-Kebridehar-Denen-Gode road is constructed. A lot of sacrifices were paid to construct the road, which is now open to traffic.
