Sports, Culture and Heritage Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed is in mourning following the sudden demise of her husband Khalid Ahmed.

According to a family spokesperson, Khalid Ahmed passed away on Thursday at 5am, after a short illness. He had been admitted at the Karen Hospital.

The late Khalid was a father of two.

The death of CS Amina’s husband come months after she also lost two other family members.

In May 2021, Mohamed lost her Aunt. She eulogized the Aunt as her best friend and confidant, saying her family had lost a pillar that was filled with love, grace and selflessness.

“I celebrate the life of my friend, confidant and dearest aunt whose passing has rid our family of an anchor pillar filled with love, grace, compassion and selflessness. She was there from the day I was born and has walked with me throughout all the phases of my life, guiding me, counseling me and holding me true to the truest expression of my earthly self. Reminding me to always embrace humility, humanity, peace and gratitude. Her love and belief brings us all peace today and every day following her transition from this earth. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un,” said Amina in a post seen by Pulse Live.

In July 2018, the CS again lost her brother and businessman Esmael Mohamed Jibril.
