Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi described the death of Mr Omondi as a great loss to the people of Kahawa Wendani and Kiambu as whole.
“Cyro will be remembered for his passion and dedication to his work both in the county assembly and in his ward,” said the senator.
He added: “Through Cyrus, the people of Kahawa Wendani and Kiambu demonstrated that it is possible to rise above petty considerations and elect a leader based on merit. This, indeed, is the true spirit of the great people of Kiambu. I wish to pass my deep and heartfelt condolences to Cyrus’s family, relatives, friends, the people of Kahawa Wendani and Kiambu in general.”
Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura, who condoled with the family, termed the late Omondi a hero who showed that ethnicity was slowly losing its place in Kenya.
