President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a condolence message to the family, relatives and friends of a senior Ministry of Foreign Affairs official following his mother’s death.

The President described Mama Anne Osure Amolo as a dedicated, and industrious leader, who would be remembered for initiating several women’s empowerment projects.

“Mama Anne Amolo was an amiable person, whose devotion to women’s empowerment saw her initiate and participate in a number of transformative projects in Kano, Kisumu County.

“She was a role model and a loving mother who always went out of her way to show kindness to those in need,” the President eulogised her.
