“We the State Government came to realize that late Hussein served as County Commissioner four times, and for long period so we recognize him as a senior politician that is why as State government we agreed that he should be buried at the State secretariat,” Futuyo said.
“I have one message which goes to everyone starting with myself, I asked myself what did late Hussein do to the people that when his body arrived in the State the whole population of the County came on the road? So what I am telling everyone is we should learn and try our best to see what can we do to the community so that they remember just when we are gone like Hussein Enoka,” added Governor Futuyo
