Former Umno info chief dies

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Umno information chief Datuk Paduka Ibrahim Ahmed died of kidney failure yesterday. He was 77. 

He leaves behind his wife Datin Paduka Hatimah Ahmad, 64, five children aged 32 to 43 and 18 grandchildren. 

His daughter Dalilah, 32, said her father died at 6.45pm in his house in Taman Keramat here with his family by his side. 

“He had been in and out of Gleneagles Intan Hospital in Ampang the last three months. At midday today (yesterday), we decided to bring him home from the hospital after he no longer responded to treatment,” said Dalilah, a journalist with The Star

Ibrahim served as the party's information chief in the 1960s and was sent to Sabah to help the then-ruling party, Usno, in the 1970s. 

Between 1978 and 1985, he served as the political secretary to Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, who was then Trade and Industry Minister.
