President Uhuru Kenyatta has mourned Isak Mohamed, a Member of the Somali Parliament, killed in a bomb attack in Mogadishu Monday.
The President said the death of Mohamed was not only a big blow to his family and the Federal Government but also the people of Somalia who he served with commitment and dedication as a Member of Parliament.
“His contribution to rebuilding Somalia will always be remembered and honoured by those he has left behind,” President Kenyatta said. The President strongly condemned the bomb attack that resulted in the death of the Somali legislator, saying that Kenya stands with the people of Somalia in the fight against terror.
“Such cowardly attacks strengthen our resolve to do everything within our powers to win the war on terror,” President Kenyatta said.
He added: “On behalf of the Government and the people of Kenya, I convey to the Federal Government and the people of Somalia, as well as the family of the late Hon. Mohamed our heartfelt condolences.
I assure you that the people and the Government of Kenya stand with you during this difficult time of mourning.” He prayed to God to give the bereaved the strength and courage to bear the tragic loss.
