The Governor of Mombasa County, His Excellency Abdullswamad Sheriff Nassir, presented His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, leader of the worldwide Dawoodi Bohra community, with the Key to the City County of Mombasa on May 24, 2024. The honour was presented to Syedna in a private ceremony at his residence in Mombasa which was attended by the Governor, members of his staff and administration as well as a delegation of Dawoodi Bohra community members. 

In a brief address during the ceremony, the Governor welcomed Syedna Saifuddin to Mombasa and wished him a pleasant and memorable stay. He remarked that Syedna was the first recipient to whom he had the good fortune of presenting the key to the city. He commended Syedna for his philanthropy and social service noting that the rainwater harvesting initiative he had launched last year during his visit had already proved beneficial. 

"The Dawoodi Bohra community has been a key pillar of Mombasa’s society since pre-colonial times. Their contribution to the positive progression of our county and the greater global community has been immense and meaningful," he said.

Sharing his views on Syedna receiving this honour, a community representative said: "We are overjoyed and truly grateful to His Excellency the Governor for recognising Syedna’s commitment to social causes and presenting him with this honour. It is a testament to the friendship and camaraderie that has long endured between the community, the people of Mombasa County and its leadership."
