  • Fumo Madi ibn Abi Bakr was Sultan of Pate, Kenya. Around 1800 the Pate Sultan took over Lamu, however, they were deeply resented by the people of Lamu. Fumomadi was persuaded to build a fort on the seafront in Lamu Town, to protect members of his government. He died before the first storey of the fort was completed. There was much disagreement over choosing his successor, as he had fifty children and all sons and male ín-laws were eligible for the throne. After "encouragement" from the powerful Mazrui family from Mombasa/Oman, an in-law named Ahmad ibn Shaykh was chosen as the next Sultan.
