Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji is dead

NAIROBI, Kenya Feb 15 – Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji is dead, his family has confirmed.

Haji, who most recently chaired the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Taskforce has been sick for a while.

He was flown to Turkey for treatment late last year but returned to the country recently.

He passed on at the Aga Khan Hospital on Monday morning.

The career administrator and former Cabinet Minister died at the Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi on Monday morning after a long illness, his family confirmed.

He had been flown in from Turkey on Saturday where he had been since December for treatment.

A family spokesman said Haji had multiple body organ failure.

Before his admission to hospital late last year, Haji had a heap injury in his house.

Since then, according to the family, he has had to be admitted to hospitals.

Up to last year, he served as the chairman of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) taskforce.

He is the father of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji.

He served as a District Commissioner and Provincial Commissioner for long in the old Constitution.

Top government officials flocked Aga Khan Hospital to condole the family as burial arrangements were being made.
