Wakamau was a dedicated Christian with a strong track record of community service who shall be missed by many. May He Rest In Eternal Peace.
Joined the family and friends of Mzee David Kamau Waweru as they bade him a final farewell. Mzee Waweru (Wakamau) is the father to the President of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry Mr Richard Ngatia.
First elected MP in 2002, Jakoyo Midiwo served the people of Gem with passion for 3 terms. An astute debater, a man of his word and honor, Jakoyo had a rare ability to work across the aisle and got along with members from across the political divide. I will dearly miss him.
Chris Kirubi was my friend and one to many others and a mentor to even more. He was a dedicated entrepreneur and philanthropist who helped scores of Kenyans over time. My heartfelt condolences go to his family, friends and all those whose lives he touched. Rest In Peace Chris.
We lost him just when our country and humanity needed his knowledge the most. We are however grateful for the contribution he made to our shared planet.
Professor Richard Samson Odingo was a gifted scholar and great teacher who gifted a long line of students with knowledge. Prof made remarkable contributions to the understanding of Geography and, more importantly, to understanding of Climate Change and it’s threat to life.
Kenya cannot survive a supremacy war between its institutions.
None of the projects launched or mentioned during the Madaraka period are owned by or meant to serve Kisumu county alone. They are meant to, and will serve the entire nation.
The people of Kibwezi and our country have lost a charismatic leader with exceptional grassroots mobilization skills who also cared deeply for the underprivileged. May Hon. Richard Kalembe Ndile Rest In Eternal Peace.
It’s great being back in the office after a couple of months. This morning I hosted @KenyaGovernors Chair Martin Wambora, Kisii Governor @JamesOngwae, Outgoing COG CEO Jacqueline Mogeni and Acting CoG CEO Mary Mwiti for brief talks. Y’all have a great week ahead.
As a people, we should cherish the gains made in many sectors as a nation. The journey to develop and deliver the fruits of independence to all corners of the country continues. That should be the focus of all Kenyans as we move into the future. Happy Madaraka Day!

More than half a century since a ship was built in Kisumu, shipbuilding has made a welcome return to the port. Kenya Shipyards Limited and other developments will propel Kisumu City to firmly stake its rightful place as the region's leading economic and logistics hub.

Finally, fellow Africans, wherever we are, whatever our circumstances, we must be unbowed. We must demand dignity and respect. We must give decency and expect decency in return. After all, we are the cradle of mankind. 6/6 #AfricaDay
Our youth are our greatest resource and they are growing up in a better Africa than their ancestors, we must mold them so that they may achieve their full potential. 5/6 #AfricaDay
In the 21st Century, the irony of our people now willfully walking through those gates to the same destinations in search of opportunities should pain and push us into action. 4/6 #AfricaDay
In an earlier century, our ancestors were forcefully taken through the “doors of no return,” to start a journey of slavery and shame in distant lands. 3/6 #AfricaDay
On this day, let’s reflect on our painful struggle to liberate ourselves and reject all attempts to take ourselves back into slavery and colonialism through actions that negate why we fought for freedom. 2/6 #AfricaDay
Africans helped to shape many countries around the globe that proceeded to become great nations. It’s time we apply our thoughts and energies and resources towards making our continent greater than those we helped build. 1/6 #AfricaDay
Took a moment to say hello to the people of Kisumu while inspecting preparations for the upcoming Madaraka Day celebrations.
My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends and the entire Rugby fraternity. Rest In Peace Benja.
We have lost a great patriot in Benjamin Ayimba. Prior to taking up coaching he had an illustrious career as a Rugby 15s and 7s international. As coach he led Kenya to their first World Sevens Series title when they beat Fiji at the Singapore Sevens in 2016.
History has been made! Congratulations Chief Justice Martha Koome.
Congratulations to Bonchari Mp Elect Pavel Oimeke! The win in the just concluded by-election is a clear demonstration of the unwavering support and love for @TheODMparty. Governor Ongwae, the Kisii ODM team, the Abagusii community and the entire family of ODM, kazi mzuri!
The peaceful co-existence post-2018 must NOT be taken for granted by some rogue elements wanting to confuse the HANDSHAKE for an excuse to ERODE our hard-earned liberties! This must STOP!
An election process is an opportunity for the voters to express their will at the ballot and not an avenue to pursue IMAGINARY and SHORT-LEGGED political interests. Security forces exist to serve the people and not the interests of those out to conduct political experiments.
What we have witnessed in the by-elections in Bonchari and Juja is an abuse of police powers and an arrogant display of IMPUNITY by a few overzealous and bellicose government functionaries.
Hapo sasa! WELL IN members of both the @Senate_KE and @NAssemblyKE for voting overwhelmingly in favour of the #BBIbill. 👊👍#Ballll Mbele!
I had a great chat this morning with Governor @mamangilu and @GovWOparanya together with Senator @orengo_james whom I hosted for brunch. Thanks for dropping by.
Happy Mother’s Day mama @IdaOdinga always have always will be there for me #HappyMothersDay my rock

My mother passed away while I was in detention. I was formally informed about it two months after her demise. My mother like the millions of others was special and unique.
Just like Mother Earth, they make the world a better place; they love us unconditionally, and oh man they can multi-task. It’s Mother’s Day. I single out single mums today. Happy Mother’s Day!
In Alex Ole Magelo, the Maa have lost a strong and fearless leader who stood up for them without apologies. I have lost a steadfast and reliable friend. Kenya has lost a patriot, a great football enthusiast and official. May God comfort Magelo’s family and the Maa nation.
I wish fortitude to the family of former Matungu MP Joseph Wamukoya, who has passed on. This was a very close friend who was deeply committed to our country and to his people of Matungu. He left an indelible mark as director of Veterinary Services in Kenya.
My thoughts are with his family and the people of Matungu.
Spent part of the afternoon catching up with Shinyalu MP Hon Justus Kizito and ODM Shinyalu Branch Chairman Geoffrey Mitalo. Watching the English Premier League! Away from the standings, who’s tops this season?!
For those who work to provide for their families, I salute you! Happy Labour Day!
I salute the thousands of Kenyans out there who make up for our Nation’s workforce for their contribution to the growth of our economy. Through their hard work, they continue to cement our Country’s place among the community of Nations.
