ODM's Mama Zahra dies
This follows the recent announcement by the party regarding the death of Mama Zahra, a dedicated member from the coastal region.
ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga described Mama Zahra as an unshakeable pillar of the party in Lamu County and a valued advisor at the national level.
"I learnt of the passing on of Mama Zahra with utmost shock and deep sorrow. Mama Zahra was a highly valued and respected member of our team not only here in Lamu County but nationally. On behalf of the entire membership of our Party and on my own behalf, I wish to express our most sincere sympathies to you Mama Zahra's family, her colleagues and friends. I wish you the fortitude to bear this great loss." Raila stated.
"Mama Zahra was an active, conscientious and dedicated leader of our Party, who was always more focused on the good of the people and our Party than on her own self-aggrandizement. She was the unshakeable pillar of our Party in Lamu County and advisor at national level."

The ODM supremo says she embodied the values of diligence, dedication, and selflessness, serving the party with unwavering commitment.
"Indeed, the void her unexpected departure has created in the Assembly and Party leadership is already visible and will be difficult for us in ODM to fill. Her contributions as a leader were invaluable, prioritizing the well-being of our people and the advancement of our party over personal ambition. Mama Zahra's absence leaves a palpable void in both the Assembly and our party leadership, one that will be challenging to fill," Raila said.
