"Mainya who has been serving in his second term was a soft-spoken, modest but formidably firm politician whose commitment and steadfastness to his people in his ward and in the county will be cherished for generations."
"I wish to pass my condolences to his family and friends, and pray that they bear this grave loss with fortitude," he said.
