It’s with a heavy heart that I have received the sad news of the passing on of Garissa Senator Mzee Yusuf Haji.

My condolences to the family, friends and people of Garissa for your loss. May Allah comfort you and give you the strength and fortitude during this difficult time. Mzee has rested.

Quite sad this morning to hear of the passing of Yusuf Haji. We have lost a remarkable leader & GOOD man. My pole to his family.
