Msambweni Member of Parliament Suleimani Dori is dead.

The ODM lawmaker passed on at Aga Khan Hospital in  Mombasa early on Monday morning.

A relative, Shahame Azizi, told a local media that the MP passed on at around 5 am at the hospital where he has been receiving cancer treatment.

Reports indicate that he had been admitted at the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for a week.

He will be buried at 4 pm at his home village of Gasi, in Msambweni Constituency, ODM party communicated.

“Msambweni MP Hon Ramadhan Suleiman Dori who passed on early today will be buried today (Monday 9th March 2020) at 4pm at his home village of Gasi, in Msambweni Constituency, Kwale County. May God Rest his Soul in Peace,” the party tweeted.

Dori won the Msambeni parliamentary seat in 2013 on an ODM party ticket.

In December 2018, the ODM’s disciplinary committee’s gave recommendations to expel Dori and his Malindi counterpart Aisha Jumwa for backing Deputy President William Ruto, a member of rival party Jubilee.

In March 2019, ODM expelled Jumwa and spared Dori after he wrote a letter to the party. He was directed to appear before a special National Governing Council to explain himself.

The party remained adamant on Jumwa’s expulsion over gross misconduct.

In May 2019, Jumwa survived after the Political Parties Disputes Tribunal (PPDT) quashed disciplinary proceedings which led to her removal from the party.

“The tribunal hereby declares that the proceedings violated Article 47 of the constitution … were unprocedural and violated provisions of the Political Parties Act, Fair Administrative Action Act and Article 8.4.2 of the ODM,” the Tribunal said.
