His work will be missed by many,his smile that he displayed on television, making everybody to enjoy his content to the fullest. He will truly be remembered. Most of his work comrades like the NTV Larry Madowo has described him as his source of inspiration.
This is what Larry wrote in regard to Late Ahmed;
Keep in mind that he was a boldface named prime time anchor and I was a struggling business reporter so I would ordinarily not even show in his radar. If he travelled, he would let me use his car and even leave it fuelled. That was always an excuse for me to join him and his lovely family for beautiful meals whenever I was ‘passing by.’ Even at work, he paid for too many lunches that I can count, usually at a selection of Swahili restaurants with delicious food I couldn’t yet afford.
