Kuwait’s Late Amir Death A Tragedy - Al-Ghanim His Highness the late Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s passing away was a “tragedy and a difficult day in Kuwait,” Assembly Speaker Marzouq Ali Al-Ghanim said. This came in Al-Ghanim’s speech in the special session of the National Assembly, Wednesday, held to eulogize His Highness the late Amir, who passed away on September 29. His Highness the late Amir was “righteous with his people, seeking to meet their needs, watching over their comfort and striving to achieve their aspirations to Kuwait,” Al-Ghanim said.
Regionally, he was a messenger of peace, working hard for issues of Arab and Islamic nations, especially those issues in which the humans were victims of conflicts as the Palestinian people case was his priority, he added. Al-Ghanim said the late Amir was guardian of the constitution and thus the nation was “crying a great leader and a wise skipper who steered the ship through weathering storms … He had a kind heart and was a source of safety.”
