Friends and family gather for Biwott requiem service

By Edward Kabasa/Grace Maina  

Friends and former colleagues of the former Cabinet Minister Nicholas Biwott converged at the African Inland Church Milimani in Nairobi on Tuesday for his requiem service.

They painted a picture of a man whose private life revolved around family, public service and charity.

Speaker after speaker shared anecdotes of the former Keiyo South MP revealing an amiable personality  of a caring man whose love for humanity took him beyond the Kenyan borders.

The former Cabinet Minister was a noble man committed to giving his best to his family and country.

From his charitable foundations that made the East African Community a reality to turning around Kenya’s fortunes in every Ministry he headed, tributes for the astute  politician Kenyans fondly referred to as Total Man were never in short supply.

This is the eulogy given by family, friends and acquaintances who gathered at the African Iinland Chuch Milimani to reminisce on the life and times of the former powerful cabinet minister who died in Nairobi last week.

Throughout his life in politics and public service Nicholas Kipyator Biwott was a mystery to many.

His private life was also a mystery and it is in death that Kenyans got insight into the kind of person he was.

The late Biwott who passed away last Tuesday at the age of 77 will be laid to rest on Thursday.
