Late President Mwai Kibaki’s sister Esther Waitherero has died barely three months after the death of her iconic brother

Late President Mwai Kibaki’s elder sister Esther Waitherero passed away in Othaya aged 115 years on Thursday barely three months after his famous brother and 3rd President of Kenya died.

A friend of the family and aspiring candidate for Othaya Parliamentary seat lawyer Patrick Ngunjiri while breaking the news said Waitherero was the only remaining sibling of the former President.

He described her as strong pillar in the family who nurtured the other siblings to national leaders.

“Waitherero died at the blessed age of 115 years and she was the remaining person in the Kibaki family. She was a strong pillar in the family who nurtured the other siblings to national leaders,” said Ngunjiri.

Ngunjiri is famous for leading the onslaught against the cartels that had held tea farmers hostage destroying the sector and was a major player in the successful tea reforms spearheaded by Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya.
