Chief Justice David Maraga’s Message of Condolences to the Family and Friends of the Late Hon.  Henry Onyancha Obwocha.

Sunday, August 5, 2018.   

It is with deep sadness that I learnt of the untimely death of Hon. Henry Onyancha Obwocha. 


Hon. Obwocha, who was a personal friend for many years, was a man with a big, generous and selfless heart. A meticulous accountant; a distinguished, dedicated long-serving public servant; and a lawmaker whose political career peaked with his appointment as a Cabinet Minister, Hon. Obwocha was a straight forward personality as well as an astute and far-sighted politician who was an inspiration to all those who encountered him.


His death is a great loss not only to his family and to the people he so diligently served but to the entire nation as well.


We pray that God gives his family the fortitude to bear this great loss. 


Hon. David. K. Maraga, EGH,

Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court.
