Wajir (SomaliWajeer) is the capital of Wajir County of Kenya. It is situated in the former North Eastern Province.


A cluster of cairns near Wajir are generally ascribed by the local inhabitants to the Maadiinle, a semi-legendary people of high stature, who are associated with the Somali. A. T. Curle (1933) reported the excavation of two of these large tumuli, finding traces of skeletal remains which crumbled at his touch, as well as earthenware shards and a copper ring.

Wajir was attacked by Italian forces in World War II.

The infamous Wagalla massacre is one of the greatest transitional justice issues in Kenya today committed by government in 1984 in Wajir. The army rounded up Somali men of the Degodia clan from their homes in the wee hours of the morning of 10 February and held them up at the local airstrip for four days without water and food.The security men opened fire at them and their bullet-ridden bodies scattered across the airstrip and in its bushy environs.
