Veteran Politician the late Nginyo Kariuki was on Sunday eulogized as a champion for multiparty democracy and an astute businessman.

“Joined friends, family and relatives of the late Nginyo Kariuki for a requiem mass to celebrate his life and times at his home in Tigoni, Lawrence was a true politician who championed for multiparty democracy and an astute businessman. May the Good Lord rest his soul in E peace,” Kabogo tweeted.
