Raila Odinga

I have lost a precious friend, Mzee Ajwang Nyakwamba, father to Otieno Kajwang, TJ Kajwang and Moses Kajwang. I am deeply saddened by his death but grateful for having known and shared precious moments with him.

Mzee Ajwang exemplified the dignity of Luo traditions that many were running from. He led a polygamous family where children never cared who their biological mothers were.

He was a respected community leader, educationist and Church elder recognized as such by all. Ajwang effortlessly married Luo and Christian traditions when everyone else viewed the two as incompatible.

Rest In Peace, my friend.


Kenyans across the internet have expressed their deepest condolences to The Kajwangs family after the shocking loss.

A majority have wished them comfort during these trying times.
