A Kenyan lawmaker has died while receiving treatment at a hospital after being involved in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident in the capital, Nairobi.
Kullow Maalim Hassan was a second-term MP for Banisa constituency in north-eastern Kenya.
His family told local outlets that the MP was hit on Saturday by a speeding motorcycle rider. He was pronounced dead on Tuesday night.
Lawmakers have been paying tributes to their colleagues on social media.
“Maalim was a dedicated and committed public servant,” said Kimani Ichung’wah, the majority leader in parliament.
“Kulow was a good person and particularly dedicated to his oversight as well as other parliamentary duties,” said Kibwezi West MP Mwengi Mutuse.
