KENYANS from all walks of life have bid farewell to former President Mwaki Kibaki who passed away recently after a short illness.
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, his wife Margaret and Deputy President Wiliam Ruto led the nation in paying respects to Kibaki at parliament, where his body will lie in state until his funeral on Wednesday.
After Kenyatta and the dignitaries had viewed Kibaki’s body, ordinary Kenyans had an opportunity.
Nana Akufo-Addo, the President of Ghana, sent his condolences. “I extend, on behalf of the people and Government of Ghana, my heartfelt sympathies and condolences to President Uhuru Kenyatta, the people and Government of Kenya, over the death of the historic, third President of the Republic of Kenya, His Excellency Mwai Kibaki. We take the occasion to renew the ties of friendship and bonds of co-operation that exist between the Ghanaian and Kenyan peoples. May his soul rest in perfect peace.”
