Mrs Pamela Omiti, a Kenyan who lost her mother in Kenya and who had to rush to the funeral abruptly, is back in Stockholm. Speaking to KSB, Pamela said that she would like to thank everybody who condoled with the family following the demise of her mother who passed away after a short illness.
“I am now back in Stockholm and although my family is still trying to cope with the death of my mom, all is well”, she told KSB. She said that the burial went well and that her trip to and from Kenya was also fine.
She said that her family was very much moved by the support they received at a time of tragedy and added that she will soon call a “Thank You” gathering at her residence to show gratitude to friends, sympathizers and well-wishers who supported the family morally and materially at a very difficult time marked with mourning and sadness.
KSB welcomes Pamela back from Kenya as she starts a new life following the demise of her mom. We hope that the family will continue to receive the support of the good people in Stockholm because after the demise of a loved one, the act of healing is usually a long process.

According to reports reaching KSB, Otieno Kajwang, Homa Bay Senator, is dead. A source told KSB that Kajwang died of “cardiac arrest” at Mater Hospital in Nairobi. Reports say that Kajwang fell ill at his South B home after which he was rushed to Mater Hospital but unfortunately, doctors could not save his life. He passed away in the company of family members who had rushed him to hospital. At the time of going to blog, there was no confirmation from any major Media in Kenya about the sad news although KSB can confirm that Kajwang is dead. Otieno will be remembered for his “Bado mapambano” songs at political rallies.
KSB sends deep condolences to Kajwang’s family during this time of great shock and sorrow. We hope that the family will find the courage to go through this difficult time of great grief that has struck the family without notice. Kajwang will be missed by all those who new him together with members of his ODM Party especially Raila Odinga. Until his death, Kajwang was one of the most loyal supporters of Raila Odinga within ODM and probably one of the most vocal when it came to defending Raila against critics.
Prior to his death, there was no public indication that the late Senator was unwell. News about his death will therefore come as a great surprise to millions of Kenyans who knew him as a charismatic politician and staunch supporter of Raila Odinga. His death will be a big blow to Baba because he has always been part of ODM strategy. The gap he has left will never be filled. May God rest his soul in eternal peace. Further information will be availed as it becomes available.
