Condolence Message to the family of the late Governor Joyce Laboso
It is with great shock and sadness that I have received news of the death of Governor Joyce Laboso of Bomet County.
On behalf of my family, the entire Judiciary and on my own behalf, I wish to express our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to her family and friends, as well as to the people of Bomet County.
I had the opportunity to visit the Governor last month while she was undergoing treatment at a London hospital and she was very radiant and engaged as she reiterated her support for the reforms in the Judiciary. This is a shock to me as there was nothing in her that indicated that we were about to lose her.
Dr Laboso was an outstanding leader who defied great odds to become one of only three women to be elected to the position of Governor in Kenya. The people of Bomet, and indeed all Kenyans, have lost a passionate and dedicated leader who had great plans for her people.
May the Almighty God grant the Governor’s family and the people of Bomet the fortitude to bear this great loss.
Hon. Justice David K. Maraga, EGH
Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court.
