The late Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso will be buried in Kisumu. This is according to her husband Edwin Abonyo who stated that the deceased will be laid to rest at their Fort Ternan home in Koru, Kisumu County.

Laboso succumbed to cancer on Monday at Nairobi Hospital and will be buried at her husband’s home as per the Luo culture.

On Monday, Abonyo stated that his wife battled cancer for years but put on a brave face for the sake of the people of Bomet.

Further, he described Laboso as a strong lady and urged members of the public to give the family time to mourn.

''I can say she suffered for a long time but we kept it under wraps. She never wanted her situation to stand in the way of service delivery.

“She was strong and it is the only way to reciprocate her goodness. We also ask the public to give family time to mourn.

“We know she's a people's person but a little space for mourning is what we request,'' he said.

Abonyo also thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto for the support they accorded the family during Laboso’s treatment period, not forgetting the people of Sotik for accepting her despite the fact that she was married outside the community.

''I thank the president and DP…they have been of great help to us during the treatment period. I just want to thank Bomet people and even Sotik voters for being great to her against all odds.

“You accepted to vote for her despite her being married outside Sotik and Bomet. It is time for the family to be strong for her,'' Abonyo added.
