Former Likoni MP Masoud Mwahima dies at home

Former Likoni Member of Parliament Mwalimu Masoud Mwahima has died at the age of 78.

Mwahima died on Monday night at his Vyemani home in Likoni Sub-county, Mombasa.

The veteran politician passed on at around 11pm after suffering from asthma complications. 

His death comes just three weeks after that of former Changamwe legislator Ramadhan Kajembe who succumbed to COVID-19.

Mr Mwahima was first elected to parliament in 2007/2008 on an ODM ticket and re-elected in 2013 where he served until 2016 when he ditched the party and joined Jubilee.

He contested the seat on the Jubilee Party ticket in the 2017 election but lost to current MP Mishi Mboko who won on an ODM ticket.

Through its twitter handle, the ODM Party joined the people of Mombasa in mourning Mwalimu Maoud Mwahima.

“We join the people of Likoni Constituency and Mombasa County in mourning the passing on of Hon. Mwalimu Masoud Mwahima, the former MP for Likoni Constituency in Mombasa County,” said ODM.

Coast politicians and residents shared their condolences and took to social media to mourn the former lawmaker.

“From God, we shall return. This is the year of tragedy. Praise be to God. May Allah grant his excellency Mwahima a good place in the grave and the hereafter,” posted Kwale Woman Rep Zulekha Hassan.

Jomvu MP Badi Twalib said: “On behalf of Jomvu Constituency, I wish to express our condolences and prayers to the great people of Likoni for the loss of their Former MP Mzee Masoud Mwahima. May Allah grant them patience and comfort to his immediate family at these trying times.”
