CONDOLENCE ON DEATH OF MR ODERA OWISO:
It is with great pain that I learnt of the death of Kenyan actor Mr Odera Owiso who collapsed while rehearsing on stage in Kentucky, USA.
On behalf of my family and the entire clan of Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, I wish to pass my deep condolences to the family of the late Prof Henry Odera Oruka, Mr Owiso’s father for this painful loss.
As a friend of the late Henry Odera Oruka, I watched young Owiso grow up, inspired by the ideals and public spirit of his late father.
The young man who left us was a man of deep conviction and courage who faced challenges without trying to look for shortcuts.
He was certainly destined for greater strides in his career in Hollywood.
In Mr Owiso’s death, our country has lost a talent that was bound to place us in good standing across the globe.
My Ida and I join the family in prayers at this trying moment. We pray that God grants strength to the family to cope with the loss.
- HON RAILA ODINGA, EGH
