By KASS Online

President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to the family of the late Bomet Governor Dr. Joyce Laboso who died today after a long battle with cancer.

President Kenyatta said that Governor Laboso was an outstanding and courageous servant leader who stood out as an icon of women leadership in our country.

“As a scholar who transitioned into political leadership, Dr. Joyce Cherono Laboso will be remembered for her passion for education especially for the girl-child, an area where she initiated and supported numerous projects not just in Bomet but across the entire country,” a statement from Statehouse read.

He added that death has robbed the country of a bold and illustrious leader who loved and served her country with distinction.

“As we mourn and pay homage to the ever cheerful, visionary and brilliant departed leader, let us also remember to celebrate her life and achievements. In as much as, Dr. Laboso has sadly left us, her inspirational life will remain a great legacy, not just to the residents of Bomet but to all Kenyans.”
