Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso passed away at the Nairobi Hospital on Monday after succumbing to Cancer.
Dr. Laboso, 59, was silently jetted back to the country on July 14 after a medical trip to India and the United Kingdom.
On Monday morning, the Bomet County Government had issued a statement saying that the Governor was “recuperating well.”
“The office of the Governor would like to reassure the residents of Bomet and general public that Bomet Governor Dr. Joyce Laboso is recuperating well and still under observation,” read the statement signed by County Director of Communications Ezra Kirui.
Reports on her ailing became public on June 5, 2019 when ODM leader Raila Odinga accompanied by Kenya’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom Manoah Esipisu visited her in a London hospital.
