Kibaki’s long time friend buried in Othaya

27 May 2016, 18:38 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Former President Mwai Kibaki’s long time friend, Emmanuel Karanja Mwangi, 84, has been buried in his Othaya home at Chinga village, Nyeri County.

In his condolence message, Kibaki said Karanja was special having been the chairman of Constituency Development Fund (CDF) for ten years when Kibaki was the Head of State.

Kibaki eulogized that among his many friends and acquaintances, few have etched a legacy as huge and evident as that of Karanja.

“That is why his death brings to my mind not just fond memories, sorrow and nostalgia but also profound reflections of a life fully lived,” said Kibaki.

The message was read to the family and mourners by Nyeri South Deputy County Commissioner, Stephen Kamande, during a funeral service at St.Joseph Catholic Church in Othaya.

“He truly belongs to a rare breed of men who possess the unique talent that could mix politics, business and leadership in social endevours without losing an edge on any of them,” he added.

Kibaki further noted that the deceased was a champion of social development as he stood out in his remarkable management of Othaya’s CDF.

“Karanja is the ultimate portrait of a self-made man, a man who pulled himself by the bootstraps to become one of the most visible, accomplished and successful sons of Othaya, Nyeri and indeed Kenya,” he stated.

On her part, Othaya MP Mary Wambui said the deceased was hardworking and was serving the community diligently having been the brains behind several development projects initiated in the constituency.

She said Karanja was helpful to the needy
