Former presidential aspirant Peter Kenneth on Thursday lost his mother.
According to those privy to the details, Rahab Wambui died at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi on this morning.
The deceased, the family says, has been battling an undisclosed illness for a long time now.
Messages of condolence have started trickling in with the first to share his message being UNCTAD Secretary-General Mukhisa Kituyi.
“I share the pain of my friend Peter Kenneth on the demise of his dear mother, Rahab Wambui. May you and family find the strength to bear this loss,” wrote Mr Kituyi.
