President Uhuru Kenyatta sends a condolence message to the family, relatives and friends of Mama Shariffa El-Maawy who died on Sunday morning at her Nairobi home.

Mama Shariffa, 89, was the mother of former Public Works Principal Secretary, the late Mariam El-Maawy.

President Kenyatta expressed the late Mama Shariffa as a loving and patriotic Kenyan who toiled the country for decades with utmost commitment.

“As a nation, we owe Mama Sharrifa a debt of appreciation for her immense contribution to the development of our country’s education and health sectors.

“Mama Sharrifa was among the pioneer group of registered midwives in the country and has, over the years, offered her services to Kenyans across the country, especially in the Counties of Lamu, Garisssa and Kwale where she trained and mentored many health workers,” the President recalled.

“Mama Sharrifa was a trailblazer, a strong and determined woman who embraced education at a time when very few Kenyan women had the opportunity to pursue formal education and training,” the President eulogised.
