    Udgoon Siyad - a vocal politician also condoled with her parliamentarian, going on to offer some words of comfort.

    "The only thing that softens human hearts is death. It's a reminder that this world isn’t our home. My condolences to my sister Hon Anab Subow Gure and her family for the loss of their father," she posted on twitter.

    Anab has been a staunch supporter of Deputy President (DP) William Ruto, making headlines in 2019 when she announced that she would name her unborn baby after the DP.

    The straight-shooting legislator clinched her seat after she was fronted under negotiated democracy following the Tolomoge agreement between Samawathal and Abduwak clans in her home town.

    She promised to prioritise the improvement of education and health in the county if elected.

    Anab has overseen the launch of several developments in Garissa alongside DP Ruto including then launch of 6 boreholes, the construction of Dekaburi -Garissa Ndogo- Sankuri Road among others.
