“Mzee has not only been a friend and confidant but also a pillar and shining light upon which our families got illumination from,” Malala said.
Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala is mourning the death of his father-in-law.
In a message on Facebook, Malala announced the death of Dickson Ayietsa saying the news was a big blow to him and the family.
“It is with heaviest of hearts and utmost shock that I have learnt of the passing on of my father in law the late Mr. Dickson Ayietsa,” he said.
He went on to mourn him as a friend, close confidant who was a great pillar to him and his family.
Mzee Ayietsa is the father of his wife Caroline Ayietsa Malalah.
“Mzee has not only been a friend and confidant but also a pillar and shining light upon which our families got illumination from. My deepest sympathy goes out to my wife Mrs. Caroline Ayietsa Malalah and the entire Ayietsa’s family during this difficult moment as we come to terms with God’s will.”
He added: “May the grace of our good Lord comfort and strengthen us during this tragic moment as put down in Matthew 5:4. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Rest in peace papa.”
The news is a blow to Malala and it comes at a time when he is hitting the ground to campaign for his governor seat bid in Kakamega.
The Senator, who bagged the support of his predecessor Boni Khalwale earlier in the week, is one of the fast rising political stirs in the country who have shot into the national limelight within a very short period of time.
