Major General (Rtd) Ahmed Sheikh Farah death is a big blow to justice in Mombasa -TJRC

 

TJRC Commissioners in Mombasa

 

In 2009, former President Mwai Kibaki appointed and selected peace professionals in the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission.



The Renowned peacemaker Ambassador Bethuel Kiplagat was selected to chair the Truth, Justice and Reconciliation Commission.



Nairobi lawyer Betty Murungi was appointed the vice-chairperson of the nine-member team.


Other Commissioners were former Law Society of Kenya chairman Tom Ojienda, Tecla Namachanja, Margaret Wambui Ngugi and Maj Gen (Rtd) Ahmed Sheikh Farah.


Maj Gen (Rtd) Ahmed Sheikh Farah will be remembered for allowing the aggrieved Kenyans to seek justice. 



With his fellow commissioners, he promised that the commission would dig deeper into the historical conflicts and the alleged injustices.


“We will not be attempting to re-invent the wheel because others have done it. We will rely massively on experts who have served in other areas such as Liberia, Sierra Leone and South Africa and other resourceful Kenyans. We will discuss widely and come up with the best formula for Kenya,” the commission stated in 2009.
