Several leaders have sent messages of condolence to the senator’s family during this hard time. Murang’a leaders including Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro and nominated MP Maina Kamanda sent condolence messages to Senator Kang'ata’s family.

We have lost an exemplary mother who was selfless. Her humility was exhibited by the way she lived. Kiharu is mourning,” said MP Nyoro said.

I was with the senator on Friday when I wished his mother quick recovery, not knowing she would leave us today. I [went] through the same journey last year. The senator’s case is extreme because both his parents were at the hospital. May she rest in eternal peace," said Kigumo MP Ruth Mwaniki.
