In her Facebook post, Garissa Woman Representative Anab Subow mourned him as a great man with humility.

“Personally I have lost a great man with humility, a fatherly figure to everybody, jovial and warm-hearted. Those who interacted with him know the kind of a person he was,” reads her post.

Bare is expected to be laid to rest today as per the customs of Muslims.
