The curtains came down Sunday on one of Kenya’s most illustrious sons who was celebrated for his role in championing the return of multi-party democracy in the country and for his courage standing up against misrule during the Moi-era.

The one-time Kiharu MP captured the country’s imagination with his wit and charm attributes that saw him propped up for the presidency in the early 90’s and renewed the optimism of a nation that had increasingly grown weary after years of tyrannical rule.
