Male’, Maldives – Speaker of the Parliament, Mohamed Nasheed has mistakenly announced the death of the mother of Health Protection Agency (HPA) Director General Maimoona Aboobakr.
However, the Ministry of Health of Maldives has announced that the news is false, claiming that Nasheed’s announcement has been a mistake.
Nasheed has since taken down the tweet in which he made the announcement, which read that he heard the news of the death of Maimoona’s mother with sadness and that he sends his condolences to the family.
“I convey my condolences to Maimoona and her family during this delicate time and pray for the passed to be granted paradise.” Nasheed’s tweet read.
Nasheed has since apologized for the mishap.
