18 January 2016, 18:21 William Korir

Nairobi - A man who was shot protecting Christians from Al Shabaab militants in a Mandera bus has died of his wounds.

The man, Salah Farah died Sunday night after suffering four weeks with bullet wounds, the Kenyatta National Hospital said on Monday.

" After battling gunshot wounds for four weeks, Salah Farah, a hero to Kenyans has passed on," the Hospital said in a statement.

He had been shot on the back, stomach, hands and legs.

It is understood that a bullet that grazed his lungs led to an infection that took time to heal and was in the end fatal. 

" He died a hero and we will always remember him for the sacrifice he took," his cousin Hassan Ali told News24.

Farah was the deputy headmaster at Mandera County Primary School.

The heroic Farah was in a group of Muslims that refused to be separated from their Christian colleagues when ambushed by Al Shabaab terrorists near Mandera town.

Despite agreeing not to kill the Christians, they shot at the bus on several occasions, killing two people and injuring three others including himself.

The story received worldwide acclamation with Muslims and Christians all over the world using it as a symbol of unity in the face of continued attacks by terrorists.
