Former Changamwe MP Ramadhan Kajembe buried under strict Covid-19 protocols.

Former Changamwe MP Ramadhan Seif Kajembe has on Saturday August 8 been buried at his family home in Kwa Shee in Jomvu, in a funeral ceremony that lasted for only half an hour.

Only his son Sudi Kajembe and Coast Regional Coordinator John Elungata spoke during the ceremony.

Elungata delivered President Kenyatta’s condolence message to the family.

Kajembe’s remains were carried to the family cemetery, 500 metres away, by 10 health officials clad in white Covid-19 PPEs.

Hundreds of family members, friends and relatives were present at the home of the former legislator.

Coast Regional Coordinator John Elungata led security officers in ensuring social distance at the home of the former leader.

Kajembe died on Friday evening after a two-week hospitalization at Pandya Hospital.

Among those present at the funeral were Jomvu MP Badi Twalib, who is Kajembe’s son-in-law and former Mombasa nominated Senator Emma Mbura.

The former legislator was elected on an ODM ticket to serve Changamwe constituency in 2007 before his replacement in 2013 by Omar Mwinyi who was re-elected in 2017.

Kajembe served as an MP for three terms having been elected in 1997 on a KANU ticket and subsequently in a NARC ticked in 2002.
