Odinga leads Kenyans in mourning governor Nyong’o’s mother

ODM leader, Raila Odinga, has eulogised Kisumu governor, Anyang’ Nyong’o’s mother, who died on Tuesday.

Curtains fell on mama Dorcas Owino’s life on Tuesday at Nairobi’s Aga Khan Hospital, where she was admitted few days ago.

“We keep HE the Governor and the entire family at this very dark time in their lives. May the Lord rest her soul in eternal peace,” read a statement from the governor’s press unit.

Tributes have been pouring in since the news broke, with Odinga leading Kenyans in mourning Ms Owino.

“She never stopped serving and guiding the family and the community she was part of despite her advancing years,” Odinga said in a tweet.

The opposition chief described her as “a true matriach and pillar of the Nyong’o family.”

“We are profoundly grateful for having known her. Our family will be forever grateful for the friendship we formed that has stood the test of time,” he wrote.

“Our hearts and prayers are with Professor and the entire Nyongo clan at this moment of grief. May God grant the family the fortitude and faith to cope with the loss.”
