Deputy President William Ruto has mourned with the family of the late Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze.
Throught his twitter handle, the DP described Nyenze as an amiable and open-minded legislator, who took great satisfaction in serving his constituents.
“Deepest condolences to the family and friends of Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze. He was an amiable and open-minded legislator, who took great satisfaction in serving his constituents. Mr Nyenze was a voice of reason in and out of Parliament and spoke his mind,” he wrote.
“His strong personality, charm and wit rubbed off on those he interacted with. May God give his loved ones and the people of Kitui County strength and fortitude during this difficult time. Rest in Peace,” he added.
Nyenze passed on this morning at Nairobi hospital after a long battle with cancer.
His body is currently lying at Lee Funeral Home.
