KENYANS LEFT IN SHOCK AS THIS HAPPENS DURING THE LATE NICHOLAS BIWOTTS BURIAL CEREMONY IN ELGEYO MARAKWET

pageHundreds of dignitaries joined residents at the home of former Cabinet minister Nicholas Biwott in Keiyo South, where he was laid to rest.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto were there to witness the last journey of one of the most prominent personalities from the KANU era.

Uhuru paid a moving tribute to the late politician and revealed that he once worked under Biwott in the Tourism Ministry.

Mr Biwott, popularly known as ‘Total Man’, died in Nairobi on July 11 after a long illness.

On Wednesday, his three widows and seven children were introduced to hundreds who turned up to view his body at Biwott Day Secondary School in Keiyo South ahead of his burial.

The three – Hannie Kiprono, Margaret Kamar and Kalista Lessie – stood in front of the crowd and held each other’s hands and expressed their sadness at losing a man they said had taken good care of them.

Mr Biwott had seven children – six daughters and a son – who were all introduced on Wednesday.
