Nairobi, 20th December, 2021
Nairobi City County Governor, Ann Kananu yesterday visited the campus of Aljamea tus Saifiyah in Karen. The county boss also received donations and contributions from the Dawoodi Bohra community towards the Countys’ christmas tree and charity.
Said Governor Kananu, “Under the leadership and guidance of His Holiness Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, the Dawoodi Bohra community in Nairobi and Kenya, has committed itself to the service of mankind. Initiatives such as ‘Project Rise’ focuses on providing for and supporting those who are in need. For example, the
community regularly pledges food for orphans, especially during the festive season, with the understanding that we are all part of humanity. The Dawoodi Bohras are known for their entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen. The community thrives as an economic and commercial powerhouse and plays a pivotal role in the development of this city and Kenya as a whole.”
The Governor also singled out the community for its commitment towards education. “The visit to the campus of Aljamea tus Saifiyah today, shows just how much His Holiness is committed to education and how a focus on knowledge and learning is key to the development of the young souls that come from all four corners of the globe to learn in this lush and serene suburb of Nairobi county.”
The Governor commended the Bohra community for their continued investment in the city. “I want you to know that the Bohra community is an integral part of Kenya’s and Nairobi City’s economic development. The values in this institution attest to the Bohra Communities’ rich and diverse culture and philosophies based on the holy Quran. On behalf of the 4 million Nairobians and staff at City hall, I would like to thank you for your contribution and support towards this year’s Christmas tree and charity. Securing sponsors for this important activity is especially important this year, as we face the daunting challenges as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Your contribution will enable us continue in our mission and to assist those in our community.”
The Governor was accompanied by Senate Speaker, Hon. Kenneth Lusaka. Both leaders planted commemorative trees.
