Former Kibwezi MP and vocal Kamba Politician Kalembe Ndile will be laid to rest on Friday 11th 2021.
On Thursday (today) at 10 am, a requiem mass was held at the Holy Family Basilica.
Speaking during a fundraising on Tuesday at a Nairobi Hotel to help clear the hospital bill and cater for the funeral expenses, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka praised the deceased for honesty, hardworking and his sense of humor.
Kalonzo said the late Ndile had registered to be a member of the Wiper Party and had assured him of not contesting for any position but to support him in his presidential bid in 2022.
“I sincerely wish to express my gratitude to those who have contributed towards the dignified sendoff- of our brother and to settle the huge medical and funeral expenses,” he said.
The steering committee chaired by Kibwezi West Mp Patrick Musimba and Makueni Women Rep Rose Museo called on ordinary citizens as well as leaders to mourn Ndile.
“It is my wish that the family and people of Kibwezi accord Hon Kalembe Ndile a decent and befitting sendoff and also a peaceful and heroic one,” said Museo.
In his condolence messages, President Uhuru Kenyatta eulogized Ndile as a selfless and humorous leader.
Ndile died last week at Nairobi Hospital.
He is a former MP for Kibwezi Constituency and served as an Assistant Minister for Tourism and Wildlife during President Mwai Kibaki’s regime.
