Deputy President William Ruto on Tuesday attended the burial of former Uasin Gishu nominated MCA Rose Kisama in her home in Kibiko, Kajiado West, Kajiado County.
In a post on his official Facebook page, Ruto eulogized Kisama as a peacemaker who loved to share and spend time with the less needy in society.
"Rose Kisama was a passionate peace ambassador and a conscientious grassroots mobiliser. She was a dedicated and selfless community leader, who championed unity and peaceful coexistence among communities. Rose loved philanthropy, sharing and visiting with the less fortunate in society. She was cheerful, sociable and visionary," reads part of his post.
Kisama passed away after a heart attack while travelling from Eldoret to Nairobi.
During her time, she served as a Nominated Member of County Assembly in Uasin Gishu between 2013 to 2017.
She was also a vocal activist before and after the 2017 General Elections and played a key role in preaching peace and cohesion in the North Rift region, especially after the 2007/08 post-election violence.
She fondly referred to herself as a peace ambassador.
Many eulogized Kisama as a hardworking and no-nonsense lady.
