Late Biwott laid to rest in Elgeyo Marakwet

The late former Cabinet Minister Nicholas Biwott was Thursday laid to rest at his home in Elgeyo Marakwet County.

The late Biwott, who was also the leader of the National Vision Party, was buried near the graves of his parents. AIC Bishop, Silas Yego, presided over the service.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto are among those who attended the burial.

The veteran politician died last Tuesday aged 77, after a long illness.

The former minister will be remembered by many as a prominent Kenyan businessman and politician.

He held several senior ministerial and government posts in Kenya’s three consecutive regimes of President Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel arap Moi and Mwai Kibaki in the 1970s, 80s and 90s and also as a Member of Parliament for Keiyo-Marakwet and later the Keiyo South Constituency.
