Following the government’s directive to combat the spread of the coronavirus, Antony Waswa Bungoma Senator’s brother’s burial was attended by few people who eulogized him as a brave, humble, hardworking and social friend to many.

The burial which was attended by top most Bungoma county political leaders and Church priests strictly followed the government’s burial procedure, maintaining social distance and wearing face masks to prevent the spread of corona virus.

Bungoma residents turned up at Mukhweya village Kabuchai constituency as sombre mood engulfed the short function while residents, Church leaders and politicians narrated their good relationship with the late.

The late Waswa who was a personal aide to his brother also the Westland Member of Parliament Tim Wanyonyi succumbed from short illness last week at Agakhan Hospital in Nairobi.

Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula applauded the move by President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Ministry of Health who gave out more guidelines to help in combating the spread of corona virus in the country.

‘’I take this opportunity to thank our President for issuing out strict guidelines to help in combating spread of corona virus,’’ said Wetang’ula.

The legislator eulogized his brother as a brave, humble, hardworking and social fellow, adding that as a family they have lost a friend, a leader and bread winner to his humble family.

‘’I personally am a friend to Anthony Waswa, I knew Waswa as a humble, a forgiver friend, I have lost indeed,’’ the legislator said.

Wetang’ula applauded the support given by President Uhuru Kenya, ODM Leader Raila Odinga, ANC Learder Musalia Mudavadi and Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka in ferrying his brother’s body from Nairobi to Bungoma, adding that as leaders we should have such like relationship for the prosperity of our nation.

‘’This is the time we should come together as leaders to ensure that we fight this corona virus which has really pulled down the Country’s economy,’’ he said.

He encouraged Kenyans to follow the Ministries guidelines in fighting the spread of Covid-19.

Among the leaders present were Trans-Nzioa County Deputy Governor Stanley Tarus, MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi.

Others were Bungoma County Woman Representative Catherine Wambilianga, Trans-Nzioa Woman Representative Janet Nangabo and Sirisia MP Major John Waluke.
