A teacher who shielded non-Muslims during an ambush by Islamist gunmen on a bus traveling from Nairobi to Mandera has died

Mr Salah Farah died on Sunday night at Kenyatta National Hospital, according to his brother Rasheed Farah.

Mr Farah was the deputy head teacher at the Mandera Township Primary School and was airlifted to Nairobi for specialised treatment following the December attack.

During the attack, the Islamist militants reportedly separated passengers according to their religions.

Muslims who were part of the 62 passengers shouted at the militants saying non-locals should be left alone, forcing the militants to panic and flee.

“Burial is likely to be in Nairobi. We will take the body for prayers in South C and then bury him in Lang’ata Cemetery today (Monday),” said Mr Rasheed Farah.
