Former Gem Member of Parliament Jakoyo Midiwo has died at the age of 55.

Midiwo passed on Monday evening at a Nairobi hospital after a battle with illness, his family said.

The former legislator’s death comes only days after he lost his sister who is set to be buried on Saturday.

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) mourned Midiwo as a defender of the party and a gallant man.

“Sad day for our party. We have just lost a gallant son of the soil, a founder member of the Change Movement & a three time Member of Parliament for Gem Hon. Jakoyo Midiwo,” said the party.

“He was a defender of the party & never shied away from speaking the truth. To the family, we say POLE SANA.”
