A sombre mood has engulfed the entire county of Kisumu after the latest breaking news of the death of two county government officials.
Kisumu County Clerk Nelco Sagwe and Human Resource manager Lazarus Obera have this afternoon died at Aga Khan Hospital in Kisumu.
According to information by the County Assembly Speaker Elisha Oraro, the two died early on Sunday after a short period of illness that saw both of them admitted at the facility.
"We have lost an elder who was a source of inspiration to many and who ably played the role of a counsellor and mediator in the assembly," said Mr Oraro on Mr. Obera.
He has further mourned the late Deputy Clerk as a highly experienced, dedicated and disciplined civil servant whose transformational leadership will be missed by the assembly of Kisumu.
Mr Obera served as the Archbishop of Legio Maria Church before he met his untimely death on Sunday morning whereas Mr Sagwe was a PhD student at the University of Nairobi.
