Immortalized in death! Yusuf Haji Avenue In Eastleigh
First Avenue lane in Nairobi’s Eastleigh estate has been renamed after the late Garissa Senator Mohamed Yusuf Haji who passed away last month at the age of 80.
This comes after the County Assembly of Nairobi passed a motion to have the road renamed to honour and recognize Haji’s efforts in public service during his 55 years of service to the Nation.
Majority Leader Abdi Hassan alias Guyo who moved the motion described the late Senator as a symbol of peace, an efficient, knowledgeable, humble but firm leader who dedicated his life to public service and his name should be engraved in the annals of Kenyan history.
The Nairobi legislator also said the Senator’s remarkable attribute saw him be chosen by President Uhuru Kenyatta to steward the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), a task that Guyo said Haji took on with earnest zeal and delivered a noteworthy constitutional Bill.
