Prof George Saitoti was today finally laid to rest in his Enkasiti Home in Kitengela. People from all walks of life gathered to give the Professor a decent send off.

The meeting included 20 cabinet ministers, 90 members of Parliament and two ministers, one from Tanzania and Southern Sudan.

Tanzanian Foreign Affairs Minister read Jakaya Kikwete's message, who said that his passing was a loss of integration efforts in the East Africa Community.

Indeed Kenya has lost an Elite leader who showed devotion to his work, especially as a Mathematician who impacted the lives of his student while he was a lecturer in the University of Nairobi to his current docket  as Minister of Internal Security.

May his Soul Rest in Peace.
