The late Public Works PS El-Maawy's burial pushed to Friday

The burial for the late Public Works Principal Secretary Mariam El -Maawy has been pushed to Friday, the Government Spokeman Eric Kiraithe has announced.

The family spokesman Mohammed Ali had earlier said the the late PS would be buried on Thursday after mosque prayers.

The soft -spoken PS was undergoing treatment in South Africa over injuries she sustained after Al-Shabaab militants ambushed her convoy at Milihoi in Lamu County in July this year.

 The Public Works Principal Secretary died while receiving treatment in South Africa.

In July this year, Al-Shabaab militants briefly abducted the PS El-Maawy and her entourage at Milihoi along the Lamu-Mpeketoni highway after attending a government function before being rescued by Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers 45 minutes later.

At least four security officers, including Ms El-Maawy’s driver, were killed during the attack.

The PS was later airlifted in a KDF helicopter to a hospital in Nairobi. She had a bullet lodged in her left shoulder and burns on her legs.
