“Her Excellency will be remembered for her immense contribution in the development of our country and county. She was at the forefront in improving the lives of ordinary Kenyans and in Nyeri was passionate about orphans and squatters,” said the governor.

He said Lucy was a role model to many mothers.

Senator Mutahi Kagwe said Nyeri will miss the former First Lady as she was leaders’ advisor and acted as their mother.

He said Mukurwe-ini sub-county, where Lucy was born, has been greatly affected by the death since she participated in development projects.

“Lucy Kibaki is a person I knew personally and she participated in various development projects, including Muhito Church in Mukurwe-ini and many other projects in Nyeri County,” said the Senator.

Mary Njambi, a resident of Kieni, said Lucy will be remembered in the Nyeri County for settling squatters who were living in Mount Kenya forests to Solio Settlement Scheme.

“She did a remarkable thing by helping squatters by buying them land in Solio. She was our mother,” said Njambi.

Elsewhere, Kigumo MP Jamleck Kamau mourned the deceased as a mother, exceptional and courageous leader.

“Her Excellency mama Kibaki will be remembered for her great contribution towards developing this nation. I take this opportunity to condole with the former President Mwai Kibaki and the entire family, during this trying moment,” said Kamau.
