Hussein Sheikh Ahmed Kaddare (Somali: Xuseen Sheekh Axmed Kaddare, Arabic: حسين الشيخ أحمد كاداري‎) was a Somali inventor.


Kaddare (1934-2015) was born near Mogadishu in the Banaadir region of Somalia to an Abgaal Hawiye family. In 1953, he created the Kaddare script, an orthography named after him that was used to transcribe the Somali language.[1]
