Govt launches website to honour Nkaissery

The government has launched a website to honour the late Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery.

Kenyans can log onto to get updates on Mr Nkaissery’s burial programme.

In a statement, Health CS Dr Cleopa Mailu, who is chairing the burial committee said: “In honour of the late minister, the government has set up a website where Kenyans can follow funeral and burial arrangements as well as lodge their tributes.

“They are also encouraged to offer their tributes through condolence books available at Harambee House, KICC, Parliament, the Nairobi Baptist Church and 47 county headquarters and regional commissioner’s offices countrywide,” Dr Mailu said.

Further, the Dr Mailu said the committee had acknowledged that Mr Nkaissery’s  sudden death had raised questions.


Alarming statements on the death, he noted, had raised tension unnecessarily in social and mainstream media, adding that some of the comments had infringed on the legacy of the deceased minister and distressed his family.

“As we respect everyone’s right to express themselves in this regard, we ask Kenyans to do so in a respectful and responsible manner,” he said, reminding Kenyans that post-mortem preliminary results had shown Mr Nkaissery died of a heart attack.

The deceased minister had complained of sharp chest pains moments before he collapsed and died in his house.

A memorial service for Maj Gen (Rtd) Nkaissery will be held at Nairobi Baptist Church on Thursday before his burial on Saturday at his rural home in Ilbisil, Kajiado county.
