Nakuru Governor Susan Kihika has lauded residents for calmly conducting themselves amid incidences of unrest in some parts of the country.
Kihika noted that Nakuru was largely peaceful, insisting that the ongoing demonstrations are unhealthy for the nation.
“There is no other country to go to, elections ended and a winner was declared, we need to focus on development,” she said.
The governor was speaking during the burial of Nakuru businessman George Ngarama famously known as Mzee Muthaiti at Murunyu High School in Bahati.
She remembered Ngarama as a friend who reminded him more of his father, Kihika Kimani, on giving girls an opportunity to study.
“He built churches, schools, and developed businesses, and above all his love for education was unmatched,” said Kihika.
On his part, Lands Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Kimani Ngunjiri who condoled with the family called on the church to pray for the country for peace and cohesion.
Speaking at the same function County Assembly Speaker Joel Karuri described Ngarama as a great leader who impacted every person in different ways adding that it was an honor to have known him.
Also in attendance was Deputy Governor David Kones, a host of MCAs, and County Executive Members among others.
