Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris is mourning the death of her father.

In a heartfelt post on her social media platforms, Passaris penned that she has lost a part of her today.

She remembers her 79-year-old dad for his achievements throughout the years, notably being part of the team that built Kenya’s first ship.

“My dad achieved a lot in his 79 years. From building the first ship in Kenya - the 'MV Mwewe' that sailed across the East African coast, to coaching and mentoring young men,” she tweeted.

The Woman Rep’s father, a naval architect, is of Greek origin.

Netizens condoled with the leader, wishing the family peace.

“Though heartbroken, it is well with my soul,” Passaris said.
