President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have sent condolence messages to the family of former Likoni MP Masoud Mwahima who passed away on Tuesday morning at 78 years.

The President described him as an elder statesman, intelligent leader and clever grassroots mobiliser who leaves behind a huge legacy of development.

“Mzee Mwahima was an approachable, humorous, visionary elder and leader who offered wise counsel and outstanding service to the people of Mombasa especially his Likoni Constituency for decades,” Uhuru said.
The President added that  "As a politician, Mzee Mwahima was a strong champion for community development projects, a trait that enabled him to rise through Mombasa politics having served as a councillor, Mayor of Mombasa and MP for Likoni Constituency for two terms.”

Deputy President William Ruto extolled Mwahima as a bright and impressive politician who was always a firm defender of his people’s and national interest.

“A leader of great humility, Mheshimiwa Mwahima was tireless, fearless and a tenacious debater whose domination in our country’s political scene will be fondly remembered,” Ruto said.

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho said Mwahima was a pillar of strength.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko described Mwahima as a committed champion of people's rights.

He was a former Likoni MP and a former Mombasa mayor.

The family says he died of asthma difficulties but had other ailments. He was 78 years old.
