Kenya's Democracy Champion Ahmed Bamahriz Dies in UAE

One of the original champions of multi-party democracy in Kenya in the early 1990s, Ahmed Bamahriz, has transited.



According to family sources, Mr Bamahriz died on Saturday evening at AL Qassimi Hospital in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, after a long illness.

On learning about Mr Bamahriz’s death, Kenya’s Ambassador to Oman, Mohamed Dor, speaking to the Nation by phone moments ago, said he would attend the burial. He expressed his condolences to the family.

The fiery politician was elected as councillor in Mombasa Municipality from 1979 to 1992.

He was one of the leaders of the second liberation in Kenya during the clamour for multi-party democracy.

During the struggle for pluralism in the 1990s, he was among leaders who were detained by the Kanu regime.

Other leaders who were detained in a move aimed at scuttling a rally which was to be held at Nairobi’s Kamukunji grounds on July, 1990 were Kenneth Matiba, Charles Rubia and Raila Odinga and the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.
