Former Mandera South MP Mohamed Adan Huka is dead

The former Mandera South Member of Parliament Mohamed Adan Huka (pictured) this morning died after battling a year-long sickness.

According to his family, Mr Adan died at a hospital in the coast.

Mandera Governor Ali Roba condoled with his family and friend saying he will support them.

“To the family and close friends, please take heart and exercise utmost patience during this trying moments of your lives,” he said.

Mr Adan was elected to Parliament in 2013 on a United Republican Party (URP) ticket, an affiliate of Jubilee.

He served did not seek re-election in 2017 following the decree by the defunct Garre Council of Elders in Mandera.

Mr Adan was at the fore of fighting for the peace of northern Kenya. In 2015, he strongly defended National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale against demands that he produces a list of those funding terrorism.

“There is no need of singling out Mr Duale. North Eastern leaders had a three-day consultative meeting, where the promise was made and the media together with other individuals have capitalized on it,” he said.
