As the National Assembly Minority Whip, Junet is the senior-most Somali MP in Parliament following the demotion of Aden Duale (Garissa) from the position of Majority Leader in June. The elevation means Junet is the de-facto political spokesperson of the Somali Community.

The lawmaker’s star continues to shine since being elected to parliament in 2013. Junet is regarded as a member of ODM leader Raila Odinga’s inner circle. He was the only politician who accompanied baba to Harambee house for the famous March 9, 2018 handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
