Banissa lawmaker Kullow Maalim Hassan is dead.  

Mr Hassan died on Tuesday evening at a city hospital while receiving treatment following a hit-and-run motorcycle accident in Nairobi.

His relative, Mr Mohamud Haji, said Hassan was hit on Saturday by a speeding rider at Capital Centre. He was taken to Reliance Hospital in South C and later transferred to the Aga Khan hospital. 

The second-term MP was last in Mandera on March 20 during the launch of a taskforce report on the health situation of Mandera County. 

Mr Hassan was first elected to Parliament in 2017 on an Economic Freedom Party (EFP) ticket and defended his seat in 2022 on a UDM ticket. 

He is survived by three wives and 16 children. 

He will be buried in Nairobi according to Islamic rites.
