A statement by President Uhuru Kenyatta mourned the envoy as a great public servant.

"Death has robbed us of a great public servant who served his country with distinction. Since his appointment as our envoy to Juba, Ambassador Mburu has worked hard to ensure free flow of trade and investment between Kenya and South Sudan. Kenya has lost a brilliant public servant whose star was shining bright and whose service shall be dearly missed," the President's statement read.
