press release

President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to the family, relatives and friends of the late David Muriithi Wokabi.

Wokabi is nephew to retired President Mwai Kibaki and also a brother to Laikipia Governor Ndiritu Muriithi.

In his message, President Kenyatta eulogized David Wokabi as a true patriot and nationalist who believed in building strong bonds of friendship among Kenyans irrespective of race, ethnic and religious backgrounds.

President Kenyatta said the late Wokabi, who served as a patron of various public institutions in Roysambu Constituency, Nairobi, was a great grassroots mobiliser and worked to empower people economically.

"He knew and understood my vision and that of the Jubilee Party of uniting Kenyans to live together harmoniously. Indeed he was a bridge that linked Kenyans across the country," said President Kenyatta.

The President pointed out that the late David Wokabi - who also served as the vice chairman of the Kikuyu Council of Elders - was a role model to many Kenyans whom he served diligently and impartially.

"His accomplishments are a clear demonstration - especially to the youth - that focus, diligence and determination pays. Those who knew him, benefited immensely from his selfless leadership and wisdom," said President Kenyatta.

The President prayed to God to give the family the strength and fortitude to bear the loss.
