Tharaka –Nithi County Kanu will forever miss the leadership abilities of the former Cabinet minister Joe Nyaga who was laid to rest over the weekend .
Through the branch Chairman Peter Ndatho , the leadership said Nyaga’s death came as shock to entire county .
Ndatho recalled how Nyaga would always be there for the party and also remembered with nostalgia how he used to frequently host the members at his Gachoka home.
Speaking to the media this morning after attending Nyaga’s burial ceremony last Saturday said the leadership gap he had left behind would be difficult to fill.
“Nyaga, though he hailed from a well to do family , being well of financially and also holding senior positions in the government was always a humble person who did not discriminate any one ,”the official said.
Added Ndatho” as a county Kanu fraternity , we feel to have been left without any one who can match Nyaga’s generosity and persona , “.
He said the county will continue to collaborate with Nyaga family even in his absence on all maters whether political or otherwise .
Ndatho said the entire Mt Kenya East Region had remained solidly in Kanu during his time and hoped that the same will prevail even after his demise .
He said he led a high powered delegation to the weekend burial where they paid homage to the family of the late leader.
