Kiambaa Member of Parliament Paul Koinange has passed on due to Covid-19 related complications at the Nairobi Hospital on Wednesday, March 31.
The late Paul Koinange is President Uhuru Kenyatta and media personality Jeff Koinange’s cousin.
Elected on a Jubilee Party ticket, Koinange had served as member of the National Assembly for Kiambaa since August 2017.
The late MP also served as the Chairperson, Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security.
President Uhuru Kenyatta eulogized the MP saying Kenya has lost one of its dependable leaders whose undivided focus was the unity, stability, and progress of the country.
“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,” said President Uhuru.
Uhuru 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.
“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,” noted Uhuru in his condolence message.
The Head of State prayed God to grant strength and fortitude to the family, relatives, and residents of Kiambaa Constituency at this difficult time of mourning.
