Another life lost after Kiambaa MP Paul Koinange is reported to have succumbed to COVID-19 related complications.
The legislator was admitted to Nairobi Hospital and was later pronounced dead Wednesday morning.
President Uhuru Kenyatta sent a message of condolence to the family and residents of Kiambaa Constituency following the MP's death.
In his message of comfort, the President said Kenya had lost one of its dependable leaders whose undivided focus was the unity, stability and progress of the country.
"The cruel hand of death has robbed us of a steadfast leader—a leader and gentleman whose undivided focus was the peace, stability and progress of our country.
"Through the National Assembly Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security where he was the Chairperson, Hon Koinange advanced legislation and policy interventions that sought to create a peaceful, stable and tranquil nation," the President mourned.
The late Paul Koinange was elected as the Chairperson, Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security; he also served as a member of the National Assembly for Kiambaa since August 2017.
President Kenyatta prayed to God to give strength and fortitude to the family, relatives and residents of Kiambaa Constituency at this difficult time of mourning.
