Mombasa Governor Abdulswamad Sharif Nassir joined the Memon Academy fraternity in Mombasa in mourning the four deceased teachers.

Nassir assured them of his support in these trying moments.

The Mombasa governor appealed to the school fraternity including the families of the deceased to remain strong even as the burial preparations of the four departed souls are underway.

He also appealed to them to pray for those recuperating in various hospitals in Mombasa.

He however, urged the Mombasa County education and infrastructure departments to work closely in ensuring the safety of students in schools remain the priority.

“We understand that the accident did not happen in our county but again we should prioritise the safety of our students and teachers as well.

Nassir demanded a full report from the two departments in a weeks’ time on the state of Mombasa County roads and the infrastructures surrounding schools so that children learn in conducive environment as well.

“We do not want to see any illegal infrastructure in schools since these has led to availability of drugs in school environment,” he said.


The Memon Education Board confirmed the death of the four teachers in November, 19, 2022 after they were involved in a tragic road accident at Josa area in Taita Taveta along the Mombasa-Nairobi highway.

In a statement released by the Memon academy Education Board last Sunday, the four teachers Mr Jumaa Mwadalu, Jonathan Mungai, Robert Bwire and Francis Kivindo perished on the spot.

Other four teachers including Zeinab Mohamed, Mr William Wafula, Maurice Adede and Connie Kaidza are still receiving urgent medical attention in various Mombasa hospitals including the Mombasa hospital after sustaining serious injuries in the accident.

They are out of danger according to the school Education board.

The Memon Education Board has been conducting counselling sessions to the students, teachers and parents so as to avert psychological problems following the abrupt demise of their teachers.
