MARHUM MAHMOUD ADAM

HE WAS A FATHER, FRIEND AND MUSLIM
POLITICAL LEADER TO ALL OF US IN CANADA
.

Coastweek - - Once again on behalf of the Kenya Community in Toronto, Canada, I would like to express our sympathies to the family of the late Mahmoud Adam.

Al-Marhum Mahmoud Adam was a Father, Friend, Muslim and a Political leader to all of us in Toronto, Canada. While in Kenya, the late Mahmoud Adam had vied for Parliamentary seats in Nakuru, Mathare and contested these seats with the likes of Mark Mwithaga, Dr. Waiyaki and the late Ngumba.

He later shifted his political base to Voi where his family had business interests and was elected a councilor for several terms.

While in Canada, the late M. Adam played very crucial roles in bringing Multi-party Democracy in our beloved country of Kenya.

He joined hands with other Kenyans (such as David O. Oloo and others) in spearheading Demonstrations and meetings to bring socio-political changes in Kenya. He sacrificed his time, money and health during these events.

I still remember when we traveled to Ottawa to demonstrate in front of the Kenya High Commission during the winter of 1989.

While on our return trip to Toronto, the late M. Adam's sugar dropped significantly and we had no medical expertise to attend to his needs.

Once again, on behalf of all our comrades in Canada, I would like to inform the Kenyans at large, that a "Giant" has fallen in Kenya politics in Canada.

There are many people who did "fight" for changes abroad, they may not be known to many Kenyans, or have the political background as the likes of Odinga, Matiba, Imanyara and others, nevertheless they played crucial roles which only History and time will tell.

- Abdalla Alwi Bafagih, Toronto, Canada.
