Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip has mourned young and vibrant youth leader, activist and businessman Emannuel Waweru famously known as Hossana.

Hossana met his death at Hindi area along the Lamu-Witu-Garsen road on Friday.

Anwar said Waweru was a promising young leader and a vibrant young investor.

“I have learnt with great shock the death of Emmanuel Waweru. I wish to pass my sincere condolences to the family and friends, on my own behalf, my family and the great people of Lamu County. We know these are tough times for them, but we share the grief,” said Mr Loitiptip.

The Senator said the young promising man he mostly interacted with is among those who have been pushing for youthful leadership in Lamu county.
