Date set for the burial of CS Trade Moses Kuria’s sister
The family of Mr. Moses Kuria, the Cabinet Secretary of Investments, Trade, and Industry will be burying his late sister Pauline Nyokabi on Monday, January 23, 2023.
The family said they held meetings at Loresho, Kaptagat Groove, Thego Road until Friday, January 20, 2023.
“Other meetings are also being held at their rural home at Wamwangi, Gatundu South from 5:30pm. Funeral will be held on Monday January 23, 2023, at their rural home at Wamwangi, Gatundu South at 9AM,” the family said.
Ms Nyokabi, the sister to the CS, passed away on Friday, January 13, 2023, at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital (KUTRH) in Nairobi County.
“She died at the hospital while undergoing treatment at KUTRH,” the family said.
Ms Nyokabi is now survived by one daughter, Ms. Tracy Mwihaki, who works at the Kiambu County Government.
On Tuesday, January 17, 2023, the family held prayers at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi.
Immediately after the news of her passing was made public, several leaders and friends of Mr Kuria a staunch supporter of President Dr William Ruto, mourned her.
President Dr Ruto said, “We grieve with your family and pray that Lord grants you the grace to bear the loss.”
Kirinyaga Governor Ms Anne Waiguru said, “My heartfelt condolences to Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria for the loss of your beloved sister, Pauline Nyokabi Kuria. Praying that God comforts your family during this difficult period of grief. May she RIP.”
Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo also shared a screenshot of him directly sending his tribute to Mr Kuria.
“Pole sana bro, I’ve just heard the sad news. Kindly, receive my family’s heartfelt condolence. May our Lord Jesus Christ console the entire family and friends.”
Nairobi News has established that Mr. Kabogo was under pressure to explain why he had not directly sent his condolence message to the Cabinet Secretary on his social media accounts.
The two fell out in August 2022 during the General Elections which saw Mr. Kabogo dump the Kenya Kwanza Alliance for the Azimio la Umoja one.
