President Uhuru Kenyatta has condoled with the family of Kenya's freedom hero Paul Ngei following the death of the late veteran politician's son Joseph Kioli Ngei.
Mr. Joseph Ngei, 74, passed away on Friday last week at a Machakos hospital, Eastern Kenya.
In his message of comfort to the Ngei family, the President eulogized the departed Joseph as a successful farmer and businessman who contributed immensely to Kenya's socio-economic transformation through his agricultural exploits over the years.
"I have received the news of the passing away of Mr Joseph Kioli Ngei with a heavy heart. Joseph was a steadfast and highly accomplished Kenyan professional who served the country successfully in various responsibilities over the years,” said President Kenyatta.
Kenyatta said the deceased will be remembered mostly for his commercial farming and business exploits, where he excelled and contributed significantly to the country's agricultural transformation through mechanization and adoption of high-value commercial crops.
Before retiring into large-scale commercial agriculture and business in Machakos County, the late Joseph Ngei worked for several leading Kenyan corporations, among them Muhoroni Sugar Company and the East African Breweries Limited (EABL).©Standard Gazette, 2021.
