The burial of former Kitui West Member of Parliament Francis Nyenze will be held on Tuesday in Kyondoni, Kabati.
Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua on Wednesday evening attended a harambee convened for the late Nyenze, a fundraiser that was attended by leaders from across the political divide.
Speaker Justin Muturi, Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana and Foreign Affairs PS Monicah Juma were among those who attended the fundraiser.
Wambua, who is also the family’s spokesman, said all arrangements for the send-off are underway.
“We have received overwhelming condolences from across the country and abroad. We are grateful. It is now our turn to give condolences to the country for losing a great leader in Hon Nyenze,” he said.
NASA leaders, who were represented by Minority leader in the Senate Moses Wetang’ula, sent their condolences.
Nyenze died at the age of 60 on December 6 while undergoing treatment at the Nairobi Hospital.
Nyenze served as Environment minister under the government of former president Daniel Arap Moi.
He served as the Kitui West MP and the minister for Heritage and Sports in 2001.
