Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o’s mother died on Tuesday, June 4th at his Nairobi home, few minutes to 2PM.

Mama Dorcas Owino Nyong’o, 98, according to the Director of the governor’s press unit will be laid to rest this Friday, June 14th at her home in Ratta, Seme.

On Monday, June 10th, the first requiem mass of the late was held at the All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi.

The service was attended by a number of family members, friends, relatives and top government officials.

Kisumu Governor, the 4th born of Mama Dorcas in his eulogy remembered the life and times he shared with his lovely mother.

“One day after school was over and I was walking from Ndiru to Ratta, I noticed the chief was on his way home and I waved him down to give me a lift. The chief obliged, gave me a lift on the back of the pick up and delivered both mama and I at home.

As was always the case I took off my school uniform ready to wear my home clothes. But that mission was not accomplished. No sooner was I naked than mama seized me and caned me thoroughly!

Why? Because I dared seek a lift from the chief while other children were walking home. That feeling of privilege, or exceptional treatment, she will never tolerate among her kids!” read part of the Governor’s speech

He eulogized Mama Dorcas as a disciplinarian, a hard worker, a religious woman who also supported his political career with all she had.

Here are some of the photos from the Monday service.
