Leaders yesterday continued to visit and condole with the family of the late Jonathan Toroitich, the first born son to retired President Daniel arap Moi.
Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, his Water counterpart Simon Chelugui and Baringo Governor Stanley Kiptis visited Jonathan's home at Kabimoi, Eldama Ravine in Baringo County yesterday.
Mr Wamalwa mourned JT, as he was popularly known, as a family friend and an easy going person who always socialised with everyone. He said their friendship was a result of a good relationship between his father and later brother Kijana Wamalwa and the former President.
“Mzee Moi also related well with my father and also late brother,” said Mr Wamalwa.
Mr Chelugui recalled moments they would stand on the roadside and watch JT cruise through the tracks during his time as a rally driver. Jonathan, he said, was friendly and would even stop along the highway to greet people.
Mr Kiptis said Jonathan was a man of the people who knew no tribe or race. JT, he said, had workers from ethnic communities and that in him was the face of the country.
Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Kiprono Kittony also sent his condolences.
"The business community recognises JT’s contribution to business as one of the early real estate developers through Tandui Development Ltd," he said.
