Kiambaa MP Paul Koinange is dead.
Family members say the legislator succumbed to COVID-19 at The Nairobi Hospital. The late Koinange was elected on a Jubilee Party ticket in the August, 2017 general elections.
In Parliament, he also served as chair of the Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security.
President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to family, friends and constituents of the late Koinange.
“The cruel hand of death has robbed us of a steadfast leader. A leader and gentleman whose undivided focus was the peace, stability and progress of our country,” said President Kenyatta. “Through the National Assembly Departmental Committee on Administration and National Security where he was the Chairperson, Hon Koinange advanced legislation and policy interventions that sought to create a peaceful, stable and tranquil nation.”
