Uhuru, Raila, Ruto lead Kenyans in mourning fallen veteran politician Kenneth Matiba

As messages of condolences to the family of late Kenneth Matiba continue to trickle in from across the political divide, Kenyans online are waiting to hear from retired president Daniel Moi.

Matiba died while undergoing treatment at the Karen Hospital ICU in Nairobi after suffering from cardiac arrest. He died at 85.

It is not clear why the family had not sent their condolences more than 12 hours after the death.

"It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of loss that Margaret and I send Mrs Edith Matiba and her family this message of condolence and encouragement following the death of Mzee Kenneth Matiba", Uhuru said.

In a broadcasted address from State House in Nairobi on Sunday night, President Kenyatta eulogized the veteran politician as a "true patriot who loved Kenya and a nationalist who believed in hard work and building strong bonds of friendship for the betterment of all".

He also did not rule out further attacks against Syria if the Assad regime continued the alleged use of chemical weapons. British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson on April 15 said that his government took the decision.

He said: "Mzee Matiba was a true patriot who loved this nation of Kenya, a nationalist who believed in hard work and building strong bonds of friendship for the betterment of all".

After this short stint, he served as a permanent secretary in the ministries of commerce, transport, communication, health, cultural and social services.

He was also among the pioneering Kenyan enterprenuers with diverse interests in the hotel and tourism industry. "Matiba and his team".

With the passing of Mzee Matiba, the cruel hand of death has robbed us of a devoted leader and mentor who was a role model to many. Indeed, he served the country with distinction. "His role in the fight for multiparty democracy of forward ever backward never helped transform our country to what it is today.Those who knew him can attest that he was selfless leader".

On the political front, he was at the forefront in shaping the political landscape of this Country. "His accomplishment clearly demonstrates that determinations pays". "Rest In Peace Kenneth Matiba the pioneer Kenyan professional & Our Father of Freedom, Democracy, inclusivity, and good governance", Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said.
