Nairobi - The former MP Mutai Chelagat will be remembered most for her fight for democratic space in the Jomo Kenyatta and Daniel arap Moi regimes.
The Standard reports that Chelagat passed on at Kenyatta National Hospital after succumbing to a long illness that had confined her to a wheel chair.
Among those that eulogised the fallen hero are former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who called her one of Kenya’s greatest heroes.
