Nairobi - Father to 2013 Presidential candidate Abduba Dida has died.
Dida's father Hussein Dida died Sunday and will be buried according to Muslim customs at the Lang'ata Cemetery Monday evening before sunset.
" Mzee died Sunday. He will be buried Monday evening. Prayers will take place at South C Mosque," a family member told News24.
Dida rose to prominence in 2012 after vying for the Presidency alongside the likes of President Uhuru Kenyatta and CORD leader Raila Odinga.
Dida was loved by Kenyans for his hard hitting questions at the prominent leaders but tailed off badly in the run-up to the elections.
