Uhuru pays special tribute to his secretary who died in office

Emotional message

President Kenyatta named the deceased Principal Secretary as a model servant who died while serving her country - urging other public servants to emulate her hardwork.

"I recall with grest sadness, the tragic loss of PS Mariamu el Maawy, to the consequences of a terrorist attack. I pray that her family, friends, and colleagues may be comforted and I pray that this nation never forgets the selfless service she gave it," the President stated.

El Maawy died in September last year after she was attacked by Al Shaabab gunmen in Mpeketoni area, Lamu County.

At the time of her passing, she had been undergoing treatment for nine weeks at a South African Hospital.
