Kajiado Governor David Nkedianye, on behalf of the whole county has passed his deepest condolences to the late Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery’s family.
Speaking at Lee Funeral Home this morning, Nkedianye admitted that the news of Nkaissery’s death shocked him and his colleagues, saying that he hopes his death was a natural one, adding that the whole country will miss him in a big way.
Nkedianye also said that he had not met with Nkaissery recently, but they spoke occasionally on phone.
“He is a family figure for our county. We have not been in the same camp but this is a big shock for us.”
In a time when the country was preparing for elections, Nkaissery’s death has caught everyone by surprise.
The Governor said that he found out about Nkaissery’s death in the morning after, after being in a function with the youth in Kajiado the previous day. He had to travel to Nairobi after being informed of the death.
They are set to suspend all activities in Kajiado, to commemorate and honour the late Joseph Nkaissery.
