Touching Photos Of Raila Consoling Widow Of Mololine Founder As Nakuru Governor Receives Him

A week after the Mololine Transport Services Sacco founder David Kibira Muchai passing away after battling a short illness, his body is finally on the journey towards eternal rest.

The late David Kibira's body will be laid to rest today on the Monday of September 21st and a funeral ceremony preceding his burial is currently underway at his rural home of Elburgon in Molo constituency of Nakuru county.

Then since the deceased was a notable businessman whose success story touched the hearts of many Kenyans from all walks of life, the funeral ceremony has attracted several high profile personalities in the country among them being the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

Raila who has always admired individuals who defied the odds and worked hard to build legitimate business empires without shortcuts or by use of dubious means has joined residents of Elburgon in paying their last respects to this icon.

We say this because at around noon today, the former PM's motorcade entered the venue of the funeral ceremony and tight security could be seen as he alighted from his black ride.

He was immediately received by the Nakuru Governor Hon. Lee Kinyanjui who walked with him side by side and showed him around as captured in the photos below.

Upon seeing the body of the deceased and mumbling a prayer but before taking his seat, Raila went on to console the bereaved family and give them a shoulder to lean on during this hard time as a sign that "we are in this together". Below are other photos that were taken during his arrival.
