Ex-presidents Moi and Kibaki eulogise Kanu defender Joseph Kamotho

MURANG’A COUNTY: Retired President Daniel arap Moi Wednesday eulogised the late Joseph Kamotho, saying the former Kanu secretary general was an indefatigable public servant who was committed to serving Kenyans.

In a speech read on his behalf by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi at Kamotho's burial in his Muranga home, Mr Moi said Kamotho was his friend for many years.

"I will always remember him as a man who greatly contributed to making Kanu a robust system in the service of the people," Moi said.

He said although Kamotho served in many dockets, he became a household name when he became the Kanu secretary general.

"He was thoughtful, energetic and articulate in the defence of Kanu, his political party of choice," Moi said.

He said Kamotho fought heroically in competitive politics without losing the love he had for his constituents and Kenyans in general.

And retired President Mwai Kibaki said Kamotho left an indelible mark on Kenya's history. Mr Kibaki said Kamotho was a man of great conviction and one who spoke from his heart.
