The widow of Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze, who died yesterday, recalled how her husband sorrowfully and persistently asked her to let him go in his last days. Edith Nyenze recounted how the MP, who has been battling colon cancer for years, on Tuesday night waved an ominously prolonged goodbye as she left the Nairobi Hospital. “He had started asking me a month ago to let him go. He said he would be well with the Lord, and he wanted to rest. "But every time he asked me I refused, I told him to stay longer,” she told The Standard yesterday at Lee Funeral Home, where the body of the former Cabinet minister was moved following his death at 7.15am. Edith explained she had been with her husband until 9.30pm on Tuesday night and they prayed, and when she was preparing to leave, Nyenze waved. “He had difficulty talking but as I prepared to leave he told me bye a number of times and insistently. He was leaving us, I now can see,” she said.  Speaking on behalf of the family, Nyenze’s brother-in-law and Kitui Senator Enoch Wambua said the MP had been battling colon cancer, first diagnosed in 2007. Wambua said the lawmaker, whom he described as a peacemaker, had been treated in many hospitals in and out of the country and had been progressing well. “He has been in and out of hospital for the past 10 years, had really improved but during the campaigns he contracted pneumonia, which exposed his lungs,” he said. Born on June 2, 1957 in Kabati, Kitui West in Kitui County, Nyenze, a graduate of the University of Nairobi, was a member of Wiper Democratic Movement Kenya.
