NAIROBI—Bomet governor, Joyce Laboso has succumbed to cancer aged 58.
Bomet Governor Dr Joyce Laboso came back in the country after seeking medical care in Britain and India for the last 46 days.
Dr Laboso quietly jetted into the country two weeks ago where she was slated to continue treatment from.
“The governor arrived in the country this morning, and would be continuing with treatment. She needs our prayers and support,” said Dr Hillary Barchok, the deputy governor.
Just this morning, doctors attending to her said only limited visitors would be allowed to allow the governor to rest and respond well to medication.
A statement from her office similarly stated that the doctors had recommended that she be accorded enough rest so as to aid her recovery.
“The governor is recuperating and is under observation by her doctors who have recommended [for] her enough rest and limited visitation for speedy recovery,” County Communications Director Ezra Kirui said in the statement.
