President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to the family, relatives and friends of Mama Rose Simba.
Rose, an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya, is the wife to former Executive Chairman of the National Bank of Kenya and businessman Dr John Simba.
In his message of comfort and encouragement, President Kenyatta eulogised the late Mrs Simba as a virtuous leader, gifted lawyer and a woman trailblazer.
“Mrs Simba was a progressive person who knew no limits and excelled as a lawyer. Throughout her public life, she distinguished herself as a dependable and patriotic leader who continuously created opportunities for others to thrive,” President Kenyatta eulogised.
An alumnus of the University of Nairobi, Mrs Simba was the founding partner of Simba and Simba Advocates and served as General Counsel of Mobil Oil, Chairperson of the Communication Appeals Tribunal and Board Member of Kenya Women Finance Trust.
The President wished Dr John Simba and the family God’s comfort and fortitude as they mourn their departed family matriach.
