Former Transport and Licensing Board (TLB) Hassan Ole Kamwaro has passed on while undergoing cancer treatment in the United States of America.

Kamwaro had been battling two types of cancer - throat cancer and lymphoma (cancer of the lymphnodes).

He was 75 years old at the time of his demise.

The former TLB boss joins a growing list of prominent Kenyans who have succumbed to cancer.

Kamwaro chaired TLB during the famous Michuki rules introduced by former Transport Minister John Michuki.

The two were credited for bringing sanity to the transport industry especially in the chaotic matatu sector.

It was during that time that all public service vehicles were fitted with speed governors and safety belts amid protest from the stakeholders.

He resigned from TLB in 2007 to unsuccessfully challenge former Maasai kingpin William Ntimama for the Narok North parliamentary seat.

Former President Mwai Kibaki later reappointed him back to TLB in 2010, serving until 2012 when TLB Act was amended to form the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).

Kamwaro is survived by several children and two widows - including his youngest wife Eunice Sesian whose marriage to the Maasai elder grabbed national headlines.

Sesian married Kamwaro in 2013 when he was only 22 years old while her husband was 69 at the time.
