Condolence Message to the family of the late Kenneth Matiba
It is with great sadness that I have received the news of the death of Mr Kenneth Matiba.
On behalf of my family, the entire Judiciary and on my own behalf, I wish to express our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of Mr Matiba.
Mr Matiba was an exceptional leader who distinguished himself from an early age as a meticulous manager, an astute businessman and a charismatic politician. He dedicated the prime years of his life to the service of our nation, with unwavering devotion to the national cause and values.
Indeed, Kenyans will always be grateful for the crucial role he played in the struggle for the introduction of multi-party democracy in our country.
As we mourn and say goodbye to this visionary leader, let us also celebrate his life and achievements. Although Mr Matiba has left us, his inspirational life will remain a great legacy to his family and many others who knew him. We are privileged that he lived amongst us and we thank God for the time we shared with him. To his wife Edith and the rest of the family, we pray that God gives you the fortitude to go through this difficult time.
Hon. Justice David K. Maraga, EGH
Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court.
