Embakasi Member of Parliament Hon. Irshad Ali Sumra is among millions of muslims who have made the Hajj Pilgrimage to Mecca.
This is the third time the MP and his wife are performing Haj and he has been sure to update his Facebook fans all the way. An estimated 2 million muslims have made the journey to Saudi Arabia despite fears of Ebola. The kingdom however took measures to prevent the spread of the virus by denying Visas to people from Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea – the three countries hardest hit.
The hajj sees massive crowds every year from around the world gather around the cube-shaped Kaaba in Mecca as part of a five-day spiritual journey meant to cleanse the faithful of sin and bring them closer to God.
Here are photos of the MP.
