Senator Mutula Kilonzo

It is with profound shock and disbelief that the Ministry of Education learned about the untimely demise of the Senator for Makueni County, Senator Mutula Kilonzo, whom we bade farewell hardly a month ago as our former Minister for Education .

During his term as Minister for Education, he personally steered the finalization of the Policy on the re-alignment of education to the Constitution, which consolidated and firmed up the right of every child to free and compulsory quality education. Under his watch, the Ministry saw the enactment of five critical legislations, which empower and support all players in the education sector, into law in record time.

Senator Mutula’s zeal, dedication and vast experience in matters of law elevated and branded him as a leader of his own kind. He will be fondly remembered for his professionalism, courage, charm, and sterling performance. He was not only a great leader but a father, a friend, a counselor, and a team player who impacted on many lives positively.

We shall not only miss his leadership and wise counsel, but his wealth of knowledge, and prowess in handling issues.


May the Lord rest his soul in His perfect Will.
