In a statement sent to the press, President Kenyatta described Bundi as a dedicated public servant, and sent his condolences to the family and friends of the late.

The late Bundi's commitment and devotion to his work saw him rise through the ranks from a District Officer in the then Provincial Administration to the position of National Assembly Clerk, where he again demonstrated his acumen and deep understanding of legislative processes, all aimed at improving the lives of fellow Kenyans,” said the President.

His service and interaction with members of parliament, who are representatives of the people, enabled him to understand and appreciate the challenges facing us, as a nation, thereby ensuring that all legal aspects of Bills coming from the National Assembly fulfilled the aspirations of Kenyans,” he added.

The statement came amid growing concern over the President’s absence from the public eye.

President Kenyatta was last seen in public more than two weeks ago during a foreign trip to China.

State House spokesperson Kanze Dena on Monday sought to allay fears that the President may be ill, saying the head of state remained firmly in charge despite being away from the public eye.

"I get surprised when people say that the president has gone missing in action. President Kenyatta has been in office addressing various issues and also meditating. The Head of State is fine, healthy and in high spirits as usual,” said Ms Dena.
