Raila Odinga mourns the death of Mama Zahra a devoted member of the ODM Party in Lamu County

Raila Odinga mourns the death of Mama Zahra a devoted member of the ODM Party in Lamu County.

In a statement on Thursday, May 16, Raila eulogized Mama Zahra as a highly valued and respected member of the ODM Party team in Lamu County and nationally. 

“On behalf of the entire membership of our Party and on my own behalf, I wish to express our most sincere sympathies to you Mama Zahra’s family, her colleagues, and friends. I wish you the fortitude to bear this great loss,” read the statement in part.

The former Prime Minister mentioned that Mama Zahra was an active, conscientious, and dedicated leader in the Party, who was always focused on the good of the people and the ODM Party than on her own self-aggrandizement.

“She was the unshakeable pillar of our Party in Lamu County and advisor at national level. Indeed, the void her unexpected departure has created in the Assembly and Party leadership is already visible and will be difficult for us in ODM to fill,” Raila added.

At the time of her untimely death, Mama Zahra was a member of the ODM Women League National Executive Council (NEC) and a nominated member of the County Assembly of Lamu.
