President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to the family and residents of Kiambaa Constituency following the death of MP Paul Koinange.
Koinange died on Wednesday morning, March 31, at a Nairobi hospital while receiving treatment.
"Kenya has lost one of its dependable leaders whose undivided focus was the unity, stability and progress of the country," said President Kenyatta in his message of comfort to the bereaved family.
The Head of State said Koinange as a keen and steadfast supporter of the country's peace agenda through the National Assembly's Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security where he was the Chairperson.
“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," said Kenyatta.
