Senate praises Kajwang's contribution

19 November 2014, 14:42 William Korir

Nairobi - Senate will miss the charismatic efforts of Homa Bay Senator Otieno Kajwang.

Kajwang, a passionate and hardworking individual in his pomp, died Tuesday evening from suspected cardiac arrest at the Mater Hospital in Nairobi.

In death, the people of Homa Bay, his Orange Democratic Movement and CORD coalition will miss his presence.

As will the Senate, where he was an avid contributor to debates.

" He was a serious contributor to every debate we will miss him in many ways than you know," Senate Majority leader Kithire Kindiki said.

" If there was a person who would not muss saying something everyday it was him and the house will be worse off with him gone," he added.

His counterpart and Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale also had nice things to say about Kajwang.

" He was a one of a kind character and a person who loved working for his people and Kenya. He was part of every debate that came through the house and we will miss his support and ideas," he said.

Minority leader Moses Wetangula termed Kajwang's death shocking.

" It is a shock to us. We were all in good spirits yesterday (Tuesday) and he was also very keen to contribute to debate. The opposition side will truly miss him," he said.

As did his Elgeyo Marakwet counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen.

" I worked with him on many occasions. I remember him as a person who was keen to improve the way the Senate operated and the welfare of County governments as well as deal with issues of integrity at that level".

" He was also a fierce defender of his ideals and I will remember him for that," he added

Kajwang was elected Homa Bay Senator during the March 2013 General Elections.
