Garissa Senator Yusuf Haji is dead.
His family says he passed on at the Aga Khan Hospital, Nairobi, while receiving treatment.
Haji, who most recently chaired the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) Taskforce, was father to Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji.
Late last year, Haji was flown to Turkey for treatment but returned to the country recently.
“Kenya has lost a great man, a man who served this country diligently and with commitment,” said the ODM party. “A servant leader whose leadership skills were unrivaled. We join the nation in mourning the death of an icon. Rest In Peace Sen. Mohammed Yusuf Hajji.”
