Former Likoni legislator Hon Masoud Mwahima (Mwalimu) is dead.
He 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 family told the media that he suffered from asthma, for which he received treatment at St Thomas Hospital on Sunday.
“We took him to hospital after he had complained of asthma yesterday (Sunday), and when we brought him back, he was okay. Today night when we were seated outside our home, we heard a long silence and when we went to check him, he was dead,” said his son Juma.
Mr Mwahima, 78, was also fighting other illnesses that came with old age.
