Lowassa’s son: “If it weren’t for Samia, my father wouldn’t have survived until Saturday”

DAR ES SALAAM: Fredrick Lowassa, the son of former Prime Minister Edward Lowassa, has stated that his father wouldn’t have survived until his last breath at a hospital in Dar es Salaam if it weren’t for President Samia Suluhu Hassan’s intervention in his treatment.

On behalf of the family, he expressed gratitude to President Samia Suluhu Hassan for her support.

He made the statement during the requiem mass held at the Karimjee grounds, in Dar es Salaam, where top government officials and ordinary wananchi gathered to pay their respects to the fallen PM.

Fredrick, who is also a Member of Parliament for Monduli Constituency, said that President Samia fought for his father’s health despite her busy schedule, ensuring that she received updates on his condition.

“To be honest, if not for the President, my father wouldn’t have even made it to that Saturday, the day he passed away. She was deeply concerned about his situation. We have nothing to repay her but to express our appreciation and gratitude,” Edward stated.

Meanwhile, he said Lowassa was a father and guardian to many, including primary and secondary students, for whom he fought for the construction of classrooms when he was the country’s premier.

Lowassa will be buried in Monduli, Arusha, over the weekend.
