In 1964 he took a newly crowned Sultan Mohamed Haji Hassan under his wing after the death of Sultan Robow Haji Hassan, and was the leading Gharri elders during the most difficult time in the Gharri history. He was exiled to Kenya in 1976, where he remained ever since. He died on November 13, 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya. He was one of the most famous Gharri leaders of the 21st Century.

Sources. Ugass Bukura Somo’s death was confirmed by his children including Shakay Bukura Somo, from Washington State, USA. The rest of information is my own. I knew him personally because he and my late father were dear friends and we lived in Wachile, Ethiopia before he moved to Moyale. Regarding his age, the information was also provided by the two children of Ugass Bukura Somo.
