The swahili presenter in a heartfelt post captioned that he misses him and will love him forever in a sorrowful note to Mzee Abdalla.

Endelea kulala pema Mr. Abdallah, Mwenyezi Mungu akulinde na adhabu ya kaburi, akusamehe dhambi zako za siri na dhahiri. Siku ya hesabu ukabidhiwe kitabu chako kwa mkono wa kulia Inshallah Amin."
