Former Changamwe Member of Parliament Ramadhan Kajembe is dead.
Kajembe passed on at Pandya Memorial Hospital in Mombasa on Friday afternoon (August 7), a member of the ex-lawmaker’s family told K24 Digital.
The informant says Kajembe succumbed to COVID-19 complications after spending one week at the hospital.
The former legislator has died aged 76.
Kajembe served as Changamwe MP between 1997 and 2013.
Kajembe, who ran for Mombasa senatorial seat in the March 4, 2013 general election, lost to former Senator Hassan Omar in the elective post race.
Kajembe lost his first wife Aziza Kajembe on July 24, 2020 barely four months after losing his second wife Zaharia.
The ex-lawmaker will be buried Friday 7pm at the Kajembe family cemetery in Changamwe.
