President Uhuru Kenyatta has condoled with the family of Garissa Township MP and former National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale following the passing away of his mother, Mama Hawa Kosar Shurie.

In a social media post on Tuesday, President Kenyatta mourned Mama Hawa as a humble, hardworking and devoted woman of God whose wise counsel shall be dearly missed.

Uhuru wished the Duale family fortitude as they come to terms with the loss of their matriarch.

Deputy President William Ruto sent his condolences to his ally Duale, saying Mama Shurie was “a devoutly religious, respected and responsible woman who raised upright, hardworking and diligent children despite prevailing tough conditions”.

“We will remember her as a counselor and peace advocate who uplifted the less fortunate in the society. Ina Lilahi wa Inna Ileyhi Rajiun. May Allah grant her Janatul firdows. May He also give sabr and iimaan to the bereaved family and friends at this difficult time,” Ruto tweeted.

The cause of her death was not immediately established.
