Flanked by Mombasa County Commissioner John Otieno, the RC said he frequently interacted with the former president while serving as a District Commissioner in Kibwezi district.


“He looked for positives in people rather than their weaknesses and avoided rumours like the plague. He always opted for friendship as opposed to confrontational politics in all his dealings,” said Elungata.


He asked all civil servants and residents to come forward and pay their last respects as a sign of appreciation to the good leadership and sacrifice Kibaki made to our nation. He also noted that President Kibaki inspired many people to forgive, reconcile and be tolerant of each other regardless of the situation.
