Their relationship went beyond mere client and barber; Mutua considered Mr. Kinyua as part of his family.

Their friendship stood the test of time as Mutua made it a point to follow his barber wherever he set up a barbershop.

The last time the CS had his hair cut by Kinyua was just last Thursday, June 29, making the news of his passing even more heartbreaking.

"We met in the year 1999 at Kenyatta market and he has been my barber ever since. I have followed him to many Barber shops to date. He is the only barber who has cut my hair in Kenya (including just last Thursday) He was a man that I practically considered family," the Cabinet Secretary said.
