Retired President Uhuru Kenyatta has offered to sponsor former Deputy Inspector General of Police King'ori Mwangi's son.

Addressing mourners who attended King'ori's funeral service held in Ndugamano village in Tetu constituency, Nyeri county on Saturday, February 17, 2024, Uhuru assured the deceased's family that he will sponsor King'ori's son who is currently studying at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.

Uhuru also assured the family that he would liaise with other friends and ensure that the young man gets a job so that he continues to shine his father's star.

"I have also indicated to my young daughter here that this her brother here who is still at JKUAT and has not yet finished, mimi ndio ntamsimamia huyo kijana mpaka amalize na tuungane na marafiki wengine akimaliza tuhakikishe tumempatia nafasi pahali ambapo ataweza kujishikilia na kuendelea kuasha taa na jina la baba mzazi amabye ametuacha leo," Uhuru said.

To honour King'ori, Uhuru also pledged Ksh1 million to his education foundation.

"…I'll give a million shillings into that to educate more and more children," Uhuru added.

The former Head of State also eulogised King'ori as a true son of Kenya who served the country with sheer dedication.

"Without fear or favour, Kingori Mwangi was a true son of Kenya, a country he served and continued to serve even after he left service in many different ways. He consistently wanted to know what was happening in all facets of the life of Kenya. It is not only you as a family who have lost a father, a brother and an uncle, but Kenya has also lost one of his great sons,' Uhuru said.
