إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّآ إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said 18/11/1940 – 10/01/2020
Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence and encouragement to the people of the Sultanate of Oman following the death of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said.
In his message, President Kenyatta described the late Sultan Qaboos as a visionary and charismatic leader who was committed to the transformation of his country.
“Sultan Qaboos was a great leader who was devoted to improving the well-being of his fellow countrymen,” he said. “He was also committed to international peace and worked hard towards promoting peace and stability in the Middle East. May the Almighty God comfort the people of Oman as they mourn this great leader. We will forever cherish his contribution to human development through his generosity whose fruits are enjoyed by many in the international community,” the president said. “The Head of State, who recollected the colourful history between Kenya and Oman especially the pre-colonial commercial ties between Mombasa and the Sultanate, said the late Sultan was a “quiet peacemaker”.
President Kenyatta assured the government and the people of Oman that Kenya stands with them at this difficult period of mourning.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
