Kismayo (HOL) - Shukri Salah Abdullahi, a lawmaker from the Jubbaland regional state, passed away on Monday in Kismayo, which serves as its interim administrative capital.
Although the cause of his death is not yet clear, Abdullahi had been feeling unwell for several days prior to his passing.
Upon learning of his death, Ahmed Mohamed Islam, the President of Jubbaland, offered his condolences on the loss of MP Shukri Salah Abdullahi.
"I extend my heartfelt condolences to the people of Jubaland, the House of Representatives, and the family and relatives of the late member of parliament," said President Ahmed Madobe.
A by-election will be held to fill Abdullahi's seat, which will be organized by clan delegates. However, this may take months.
