President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence and comfort to the family, relatives and friends of Mzee Daniel Kasirimo Ole Muyaa who died Wednesday at his home after a long illness.
Mzee Daniel Ole Muyaa, 74, was a prominent Maasai community elder and a veteran civic leader in Kajiado who served for a long time as the chairman of Olkejuado County Council.
In his message, the President said the late Mzee Ole Muyaa will be remembered as a patriotic leader who stood firm and fought relentlessly and successfully for the rights of ordinary Kenyans.
“Mzee Ole Muyaa was a man of the people. He was an ardent fighter for the rights and the welfare of wananchi. It was due to his leadership skills that he was able to serve for a long period as the chairman of Olkejuado County Council and the chairman of the then Association of Local Government Authorities,” the President said.
President Kenyatta prayed to God to grant the family of Mzee Ole Muyaa, his friends and the people of Kajiado County comfort and fortitude at this difficult moment of mourning.
