The mother to the bubbly CAS died on Friday morning after losing the battle to cancer.

“She was a brave woman, she fought a good fight! She never let Cancer bring her down, but she had to go back to Her Maker,” read a tweet from Nadia.

“Rest well Mama! My brother and I have not lost you! We have gained a Guardian Angel,” the tweet continues to read.

Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho was among leaders who condoled with the CAS saying “I extend my most sincere condolences to Ms. Nadia Ahmed Abdalla the Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Innovation, ICT & Youth Affairs and to her entire family for the loss of her mother this morning. May the Almighty assuage your grief and grant you strength and patience in these trying times. May Allah SWT grant the deceased Jannatul Firdaus. Amin.”
