Former Gem Member of Parliament (MP) Jakoyo Midiwo is dead.

A message from Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party Communications Director confirmed that the once vocal MP had passed on, seeking goodwill from members of the public.

"Hon. Jakoyo Midiwo has rested. Please pray for the family during this difficult moment," Etale posted on Monday.

The late Midiwo was also cousin to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga aside from having served as the deputy Minority Leader in the 11th Parliament.

The ODM party eulogized: "Sad day for our party. We have just lost a gallant son of the soil, a founder member of the Change Movement and a three time Member of Parliament for Gem Hon. Jakoyo Midiwo. He was a defender of the party and never shied away from speaking the truth. To the family, we say POLE SANA."
