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.
