Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu remembered the deceased as an “extremely brilliant and compassionate person and a rock of the Malombe family”.

In her message of condolence, Ngilu said the deceased inspired great hope and ambition in many young and old women across Kitui county during her tenure as first lady.

“Her charity work through the Kyeni Foundation which she pioneered went a long way to redress gaps in reproductive health services and information here in Kitui County and beyond. Death has robbed Kitui County of one of its most brilliant daughters,” the county boss said.
