DR JULIUS MALOMBE, PIONEER GOVERNOR, KITUI COUNTY CONDOLENCE MESSAGE TO SENIOR COUNSEL NZAMBA KITONGA’S FAMILY
I have received the shocking and sad news of the sudden demise of Senior Counsel Nzamba Kitonga.
The country has lost a consummate legal personality that honourably served this country in various capacities. This includes as a Senior Counsel, Chairman of the Law Society of Kenya, Vice Chairman of the Goldenberg Enquiry and the Chairman of the Committee of Experts that produced the Harmonized Constitutional draft culminating in the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.
I have known Nzamba Kitonga since our college days at the University of Nairobi in the late 1970s and over the years as we both navigated our respective post-university lives.
The Kenyan Nation and our home County Kitui has lost an intelligent, decent, principled and honest patriot who freely spoke his mind and positively contributed to key social, political and economic issues affecting our country.
My family and I send our deepest condolences. We pray that God gives Senior Counsel Nzamba Kitonga’s family the fortitude and strength to bear this great loss during this difficult time.
May the Lord Rest His Soul in Eternal Peace.
