Raila mourns death of Homa Bay ODM chairperson

11 February 2015, 10:26 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Homa Bay County acting Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party chairperson is dead.

Monica Amolo was killed together with other three people when a vehicle they were travelling in was involved in an accident along the Homa Bay-Ndhiwa road on Tuesdy night.

Party leader Raila Odinga said he was shocked by the news of Amolo’s death, who was returning home from a campaign rally for Moses Kajwang’, the ODM candidate in the Homa Bay Senatorial by election.

“The last night's incident came as a shocker as we had a good day together with Mama Monica during the last day campaign for our Homa Bay County Senatorial by-election candidate Mr. Moses Otieno Kajwang’ right from Kendu Bay through to the final rally in Homa Bay town,” Raila said in a statement.

“On behalf of the ODM and CORD, my family and on my own behalf, I wish to convey heartfelt condolences to the family of Dr. Amolo (Monica's husband) and the families of the other three party members for the loss. I pray to God to give them the strength to overcome grief during this trying moment.”

He said Amolo's death is a big loss not only to the party which she served with dedication but also to the women leadership in the country where she took part in various mentorship programmes on women empowerment.

He described her as a dedicated and committed selfless servant of the party.

“In the past two months, she had devoted her time to campaign for our candidate in Thursday’s by-election Mr. Moses Kajwang and was ever present in his planning meetings and rallies,” he said.

He urged voters in Homa Bay to turn up in large numbers and vote for Kajwang’ as a tribute to Amolo, a staunch supporter of ODM.
