President Uhuru Kenyatta is mourning a senior member of his security team - Chief Inspector of Police Pius Kipserem Cheboswony.

In a statement to newsrooms, President Uhuru announced that Cheboswony had passed on Monday in a grisly motor accident along Oljororok-Dundori Road in Nyandarua County.

Until his death, Cheboswony headed the security team at Sagana State Lodge and had been in the police service for a total of 28 years.

In his message, the President said the country had lost a highly dedicated security officer whose commitment endeared him to both his colleagues and superiors.

My sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family of Chief Inspector Kipserem following the tragic death of such a courageous man. His sacrifice in serving this great nation will be forever remembered,” President Kenyatta wrote in his message to the family.

The head of state also prayed to God to give the family comfort and fortitude at this difficult moment of mourning.
