President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday sent his condolences to the family of veteran Journalist Leonard Mambo Mbotela on the loss of his youngest sister Judy Hazel Mbotela Gow, 46, to cancer.
“To Robert Frank Gow and children, my friend Leonard Mbotela and family, receive our sincere and heartfelt sympathies to bear the loss at this difficult time,” read the President’s statement in part.
The burial held at Langata cemetery was presided over by All Saints’ Cathedral presiding Rev Tom Otieno and attended by dignitaries and friends who eulogised Judy as a loving, responsible and God-fearing citizen.
Judy is survived by husband Robert Gow and two children Stephanie, 21 and Christopher 18. Family and friends gathered at Uhuru Gardens thereafter to reminisce on their departed.
Before her demise, Judy was a member of Swinging Islanders choir and had climbed the career ladder from director of operations at African Leadership Network to business unit manager at EXP Agency Kenya.
