Speaking on Friday in Bomet, Dr Ruto thanked Mr Abonyo for standing by his wife and supporting her firmly while she served the people who elected her in office.

"Edwin Abonyo, thanks for allowing Joyce to serve. I agree with Shebesh that you are one of the husbands who came from heaven, while the rest of us walked," the DP said.

He made the statement in the backdrop of a message by Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Rachel Shebesh, to Mr Abonyo.

Last message to family

Shebesh said that during her governor Laboso's last moments, she gave them messages to tell her family after her demise.

The CAS said: “Joyce told us that she was luckier than all of us combined and I can agree. You are those husbands who come from heaven…in case you didn’t know, all her conversations were about your love."

Opposition leader Raila Odinga who took to the podium before the Deputy President also echoed the Youth and Gender CAS's message and admiration for Mr Obonyo.

He said: "Edwin Abonyo you've been a good husband to Dr Joyce Laboso."
