KANU party leader Gideon Moi has taken to social media to mourn his mother-in-law who passed away on Thursday morning.

“I am saddened by the passing on of Mama Afia Juma – mother to my wife Zara Moi,” Moi said in a Twitter post.

Moi similarly said that despite her death, the deceased’s virtues and personality are ingrained in his wife Zahra Moi.
“I deeply share in my beloved wife Zahra Moi’s grief because her pain is mine too. The late Mama Afia Juma was her mother and my mother-in-law,” he added.
“And in Zahra, I see a reflection of our matriarch’s pure heart and devotion to values of humility and hard work.”
KANU Secretary General, Nick Salat similarly condoled with the family labelling the loss of their matriarch as ‘devastating.
