See LUCY’s last wish to KIBAKI before she met her maker – RAILA’s supporters may collapse
Lucy Kibaki’s wish before she died. Kenya’s political elite gathered at Consolata Shrine in Westlands on Wednesday where they paid tribute to former First Lady Lucy Kibaki, who they eulogised as a woman who was a fearless defender of Kibaki’s administration and her family and always spoke her mind.
During a requiem mass attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy, William Ruto, CORD leader, Raila Odinga, former Vice President, Kalonzo Musyoka, and other political leaders, leader after leader eulogised Mama Lucy as a strong woman who was committed to causes she believed in.
A close family member of the Kibaki family also said that moments before her death at Bupa Cromwell Hospital in London, Mama Lucy was still strong and unbowed and she made some wishes before she met her maker last week.
Lucy Kibaki’s wish before she died
Among the wishes she made is that her family gives her a decent farewell and urged them to keep politics away from her funeral ceremony.
She said she wanted a respectful, orderly, and classy send-off and not the ones graced by politicians who often disrespect the dead.
