    President Uhuru Kenyatta sent his condolence message to the former Senator following his mother's demise.

    "It is with profound shock and a deep sense of loss that I have learnt of the death of Mama Aisha Abdillahi Suleiman Mazrui and I send you this message of condolence and encouragement.

    "Mama Aisha’s death leaves a huge vacuum among us that will be hard to fill. Mama Aisha evidently lived a life of single-minded service to her family, the community and the nation. In the fullness of time, she brought up a distinguished family. Her son, former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar Sarai, emulated her rectitude and has continued to serve this nation with unparalleled distinction.

    "Bi Aisha was an extremely kind and generous woman known to many in Old Town as Khalati Eisha.

    On behalf of my family and on my own behalf, we extend our sincere and heartfelt condolences to Mama Aisha’s family, her relatives and friends. We will continue to stand with you in this hour of grief " President Kenyatta noted.
