President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday sent a message of condolence to the family of East African Community Cabinet Secretary Adan Mohamed following the death of his father Mzee Abdulla Jari.

Through the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU), President Uhuru eulogised the 90-year-old Jari, who passed on at Nairobi hospital on March 13 as a great Kenyan.

In his message of comfort to the family, President Uhuru described the late Mzee Jari as a patriot and hardworking man who was always mindful of the interests of his community and the nation.

Mzee Abdulla Jari served as an assistant chief in Elwak for 20 years before retirement.

“Mzee Abdulla was a great Kenyan who served this nation with dedication and commitment. His simplicity in handling community matters endeared him to many people,” he said.

He described Mzee Jari as a hardworking family man who passed the good virtues to his children.

"Indeed the virtues of hard work can be traced in his children's lives as they have continued to serve our great nation with great commitment," the President added.

The President prayed to God to give the family of Mzee Abdulla strength and fortitude to bear the loss.
