Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya’s mother Sada Mgalla has died at the age of 75.

Mama Sada Mgalla passed on at Diani Beach Hospital yesterday afternoon following a long illness and hard-fought battle with Oesophageal cancer.

The family said she will be buried today at Mavirivirini village in Kwale County.

President Uhuru Kenyatta mourned Mama Sada as a strong, virtuous and determined matriarch who raised an outstanding family.

In his tribute, Deputy President William Ruto described her as a humble, hardworking, God-fearing and responsible woman who raised upright children.

Baringo Senator Gideon Moi condoled with the family, describing Mama Sada as a humble and caring mother not only to her family but all those who interacted with her.
