President Kenyatta mourns CS Farida Karoney’s sister

President Uhuru Kenyatta has condoled with the family of Lands Cabinet Secretary Farida Karoney following the death of her elder sister Nancy Cheptoo Karoney who succumbed to cancer at the age of 54 years.

In his message of condolence and comfort, the President regretted that Nancy, a retired teacher, had lost the battle with cancer at an age when her family needed her the most, and one year after the painful death of their father Mzee Edward Kiprotich Karoney who died in a grisly road accident.

“It is very unfortunate and sad that Nancy has lost her fight with cancer at an age when your family needed her the most. It is even more painful that she has passed away, just one year after the sudden death of your father and family patriarch Mzee Edward Kiprotich,” the President mourned.

The Head of State said Ms. Cheptoo’s strong legacy shall be carried forward by the thousands of young Kenyans she brought up over the years during her long teaching career saying the country shall forever be grateful for her diligent service.

“As a nation, we shall forever be grateful to Nancy for the invaluable contribution she made in the education sector where she taught many Kenyans who are now serving this great country in various sectors of our economy,” the President condoled and prayed to God to give the Karoney family the fortitude to bear with the painful loss of their beloved kin.

“At this difficult time of sorrow, I pray that God gives you courage and solace as you mourn your beloved sister, mother, daughter, and friend,” the President said in his message to the family.
