An announcement was made on Friday that the former Kenyan president, Mwai Kibaki, 90 has kicked the bucket.
Mwai Kibaki has been kept on record to have led the East African Country for more than a decade. This was announced by his successor, Uhuru Kenyatta. “It is a sad day for us as a country. We have lost a great leader,” Kenyatta said in an address on state television. He ordered a period of national mourning until sunset on the day Kibaki is to be buried, with all flags to be flown at half-mast.
Kibaki served as Kenya’s third president, from 2002 to 2013. “As a leading figure in Kenya’s post-independence history… Kibaki earned the biding respect and affection of the people of this nation,” Kenyatta said. “President Kibaki will forever be remembered as a gentleman in Kenya’s politics. A brilliant debater whose eloquence, wit and charm won the day time and time again.” He announced.
