Kiambaa MP Paul Koinange has succumbed to COVID-19 related complications at Nairobi Hospital.
Until his demise, the MP served as the Chairperson, Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security.
Elected on a Jubilee Party ticket, Koinange had served as member of the National Assembly for Kiambaa since August 2013.
On Wednesday, President Uhuru Kenyatta sent a message of condolence to the family and residents of Kiambaa Constituency following the death of the MP.
In his message of comfort, the President said Kenya has lost one of its dependable leaders whose undivided focus was the unity, stability and progress of the country.
President Kenyatta mourned Koinange as a keen and steadfast supporter of the country’s peace agenda through the National Assembly’s Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security, where he was the chairperson.
“The cruel hand of death has robbed us of a steadfast leader. A leader and gentleman whose undivided focus was the peace, stability and progress of our country.”
“Through the National Assembly Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security where he was the Chairperson, Hon Koinange advanced legislation and policy interventions that sought to create a peaceful, stable and tranquil nation,” the President said in a statement.
