Statement issued by H.E. Mr. Kofi Annan on the death of Senator Mutula Kilonzo

Geneva

Mutula’s legacy will be his commitment to the reform agenda of Kenya…

“I am deeply saddened to learn of the sudden demise of Senator, the Hon. Mutula Kilonzo, and wish to express my deepest condolences to his family, and to the Government and the people of Kenya.

Hon. Kilonzo’s untimely death has denied the citizens of Makueni County the services of their new senator – a dedicated and hardworking public servant. So too the Senate, which today has lost a leader among equals, who would have been critical in defining the role to be played by the new chamber in Parliament.

While Mutula will be remembered for the distinction with which he served in both the private and public sectors, I will never forget the essential role he played as a member of the Negotiations Team during the Kenya National Dialogue and Reconciliation (KNDR) process, and its subsequent implementation.

Mutula’s legacy will be his commitment to the reform agenda of Kenya, most especially constitutional and electoral reforms, and his steadfast pursuit of putting an end to impunity and upholding the rule of law.

Today, Kenya mourns the loss of a true patriot and statesman.”
