President Uhuru Kenyatta has today led the entire nation in mourning the death of the daughter of Kenya's freedom fighter Dedan Kimathi. The president has sent a message of condolence to Mama Mukami Kimathi and her entire family following the death of their daughter Peris Muthoni Kimathi. The late Muthoni passed away over the weekend after ailing for a long time.
Dedan Kimathi is widely accepted as one of the Kenya's real heroes who fought in the liberation war of mau mau. His wife Mama Mukami Kimathi is among the few surviving veteran pre independence freedom champions.
In his message of condolence, president Kenyatta described the late Muthoni as a cheerful person and a great pillar of the late freedom fighter's family. Muthoni was the one who was taking care of their family until her death.
Kenyans who have consoled with the family have said the gap left by Muthoni is huge considering that her mother Mama Mukami is aged.
