Speaker, the ID regrets the sudden loss of one of our revered leaders of society, and recognises the sterling efforts of a man who spent a lifetime in the service of his people. Imam Solomon set many examples for us to follow, and leaves behind a legacy that will not easily be forgotten.
His courage to stand up for what is right, whether or not people agreed with him, his unwavering support for the poor and vulnerable, and his passion for the less fortunate in society, are qualities that we should all strive to achieve. He served his community with pride, humility and dignity. These are the kinds of values that we must instil amongst ourselves.
On behalf of the ID, I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Solomon family, and pray that God grants them the strength and courage in the days ahead. I thank you.
