The leaders also sent messages of consolation to Kalonzo Musyoka and his family as he was today laid to rest.
Speeches from several leaders made the family share a light moment as it was all sharing of jokes following giving their final respect to a man who was described as..an affable and caring gentleman who supported the needy and contributed to worthy causes in the society.
Kalonzo today described his late father as his friend.. best friend as a matter of fact.
With the overwhelming visits he got after the news broke, Kalonzo said that he was not sure whether he was ready to have the burial last week as he earlier wished.
A reason why they held the burial today. Speaking during the burial, Kalonzo requested President Kenyatta to support him and his family through this difficult time.
