A sombre mood was the order of the day on Saturday in Elgeyo Marakwet during the burial ceremony of Governor Wisley Rotich.
The governor's brother Henry Kiplimo Rotich is said to have passed on after a short illness. He was today laid to rest in their rural home in the county.
Taking to social media, he thanked all those who mourned with them and who attended the burial
"I would like to sincerely appreciate all those who joined us today as we bade farewell to our beloved brother Henry Kiplimo Rotich. It was a very difficult moment for us as a family but we have accepted it because it is a God's call. Thank you all for standing with us. Continue praying for us. Asante sana. Fare Thee Well bro. We shall meet," he said.
May his soul rest in peace.
