Barely hours after the death of business mogul Chris Kirubi, the country is mourning again, this time the death of seasoned politician Jakoyo Midiwo.
Reports indicate the former Gem MP passed on on Monday at his home aged 54.
Hon. Jakoyo Midiwo has rested. Please pray for the family during this difficult moment.

Midiwo was first elected to parliament in 2002 on a NARC party ticket and went on to represent the region in the legislative house until 2017.
The vocal politician lost to Elisha Ochieng in the 2017 Gem parliamentary seat race.
