We’re sorry to hear of the passing of Khalid Ahmed, husband and father-in-law of Amina Mohamed. The Kenya Sports Cabinet Secretary is said to have died on Thursday morning at Karen Hospital in Nairobi after a brief illness. Najib Balala, cabinet secretary for tourism from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government was among the first people who offered their condolences last night; he praised Mr Ahmed as someone who had “served with distinction”
Khalid Ahmad has passed away following his hospitalization due to an unspecified sickness according sources close by him say that when he arrived into this world where my love resides (he) left it peacefully knowing I’m always there waiting for you until we meet again but not before typing her name
“It is with the great sadness that I have learnt of the passing on of Khalid Ahmed, husband to Amb. Amina Mohamed, Cabinet Secretary – Sports, Culture & Heritage,” Balala said.
He remembered the late recluse businessman as a great man, generous to a fault, and a rock for his family.
“To my sister and colleague Amb. Amina Mohamed, I share the loss and sadness, please accept my deepest heartfelt condolence from my family and I.” CS Balala added “May the Almighty Allah give you the fortitude to bear this great loss, and give the family the strength at this time of grief. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un (Indeed, to God we belong and to God we shall return)”
