There is just a sad feeling, Sheikh Saad was loved by the people of Kuwait. He cared for Kuwait and all developments in this country were due to him and Sheikh Jaber. We have lost some good and irreplaceable men. No matter what they did you always knew that they loved Kuwait and its people more then anything else. I even felt saddened by the day, I knew I had work but it didn’t feel like a work day or a holiday, something just didn’t feel right.

Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salim Al-Sabah

انا لله وانا إليه راجعون

A great man has passed away, no words can describe what he has done for our country.

Three days of official mourning, any private company that will be working over the next two days will be fined by the Government. So we have two days off work, a few of us are going to go into work for certain things that need to be done.
