President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to the family, relatives and friends of a Nairobi lawyer, Mama Rose Simba.
Rose Simba, an advocate of the High Court of Kenya, was the wife of a businessman and former executive chairman of the National Bank of Kenya John Simba.
In his message, President Kenyatta eulogised the late Mrs Simba as a virtuous leader, gifted lawyer, and a trailblazer.
“Mrs Simba was a progressive person who knew no limits and excelled as a lawyer. Throughout her public life, she distinguished herself as a dependable and patriotic leader who continuously created opportunities for others to thrive,” President Kenyatta eulogised.
An alumna of the University of Nairobi, Mrs Simba was the founding partner of Simba and Simba Advocates and previously served as General Counsel of Mobil Oil, chairperson of the Communication Appeals Tribunal, and Board Member of Kenya Women Finance Trust.
The President wished Dr Simba and his family “God’s comfort and fortitude as they mourn their departed matriarch”.
