Kenyans gather at Uhuru Park for Kajwang requiem mass

26 November 2014, 14:53 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Uhuru Park in Nairobi is well known for its political rallies but this time it welcomed Kenyans seeking to celebrate the life of the late Otieno Kajwang.

The Homa Bay Senator passed on last week in what has been confirmed as heart failure and will be laid to rest Saturday.

Wednesday in Nairobi, mourners including members of his family, political folk and everyday Kenyans gathered to celebrate the life of a great leader.

Led by CORD leader Raila Odinga, they celebrated the life of a man who has been described by many as jovial, open and an example to others.

" He was a man of substance. He was loyal but most important, he was a happy man and that reflected in the kind of people he hang around and the friends he made," Odinga said.

NARC Kenya leader Martha Karua described Kajwang as a great lawyer.

" I will remember him as a great lawyer because he was one of the unique ones," Karua said.

Kajwang's brother and Ruaraka MP Tom Kajwang said that his family had lost an enterprising man.

" He was not just a brother but a leader in this family in many ways. He was a patriarch and a person of value. We will miss him," he said.

Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero said that Nyanza region had lost a person of great importance.

" He was important to the region. He was a forward planner and a good thinker. It is a big loss to us as a people," he said.

There was representation from Governors, Senators and MPs at the ceremony.

It is expected that president Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will attend the funeral on Saturday.
