Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso has died of cancer
Laboso died at the Nairobi Hospital on Monday afternoon.
The first time governor has been out of the country for quite sometime receiving treatment in London and Indian Hospitals.
Laboso was brought back to the country two weeks ago and has been in the Nairobi Hospital.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga is among the many leaders who visited Laboso in London.
Her husband Edwin Abonyo stated that Laboso’s decision to keep her illness under wraps was to help not to deter her job at the county.
“Laboso did not want her health to deter her work for her county people that is why she kept her health private. We appeal for privacy during this time of mourning,” stated Abonyo.
She leaves behind three boys.
