Never been to Jowhar, my Dad worked at the Sugar fatory near Jilib. Think he went to the Jowhar factory once.

I think it is offensive we call this town by an illegitimate name. The founder of this town was Somali-Italian citizen who married a Somali wife and died in the city. He chose to call the name after him and I see no circumstances where Somalis should stoop this low of changing names so they can bury a beautiful past
