Former minority leader and Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze has passed away. According to sources, Nyenze, 60, passed away early today at The Nairobi Hospital. During his swearing in last August, a frail looking Nyenze carried an oxygen tank as he limbed his way into the Parliament chambers. An intriguing picture of the man ready to take the oath for his second consecutive term at the Parliament buildings attracted sentiments from Kenyans. Nyenze whose bold move caused a storm when he supported President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in the August 8 poll, was a onetime cabinet minister in the KANU era. He was born on 2nd June 1957 in Kabati, Kitui West and went to Kagumo Boys High School in Nyeri County. He then Joined University of Nairobi for his degree in Architecture Design and Development. He first got to Parliament in 1997 on a KANU ticket as a representative of the people of Kitui West Constituency. After 1997 elections, he was appointed the Minister for environment by President Moi but after a cabinet reshuffle in 2001 he was taken to the Ministry of Heritage and Sports. In 2002 he was however defeated by Winnie Nyiva Mwendwa but would make a comeback in 2013 after winning the seat. Despite declaring his support for Uhuru in a Wiper affiliated zone, Nyenze was re-elected in August 2017 for the same seat.
