President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to the family and friends of former Kwale county woman representative Zainab Kalekye Chidzuga. The former legislator passed away yesterday, on Thursday August 12, at a hospital in Nairobi while undergoing Covid-19 management and treatment.
In his condolence message, the president eulogized Hon. Zainab as a steadfast leader and astute grass-roots mobilizer who helped uplift the welfare of women in Kwale County and across the country through her many initiatives.
“I have received the sad news of the passing away of Hon. Chidzuga with a heavy heart. The ugly hand of death has robbed our country of a highly influential grass-roots mobilizer and leader who was a role model to many women,” the head of state mourned.
The president also described Zainab Chidzuga as a passionate advocate of women empowerment whose many achievements as a legislator and mentor will continue shaping the gender agenda in our country for generations.
Other Kenyan leaders mourned her as a visionary and selfless leader who served Kenyans, and especially, the residents of Kwale county with dedication.
