Uhuru mourns relative

"She lived a great life of service to her family and the nation."

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday paid tribute to the late Mama Norma Florienta Kanja, saying she lived a great life of service to her family and the nation.

The President, who was accompanied by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, spoke at the late Mama Kanja's funeral service held at St.Austin Catholic Church, Kitisuru, Nairobi.

“As we have all heard, she was a wonderful human being and we can testify to that fact. Mama Norma Kanja lived her life well and has left an enduring legacy which should be emulated.”

“We stand in solidarity with you during this trying and difficult time of mourning. Our thoughts and prayers will always be with you,” President Kenyatta said.


The late Norma Florienta Kanja, 83, died last week while undergoing treatment at Nairobi Hospital. She was the mother to Erika Kanja, wife to Muhoho Kenyatta.
