Ruto eulogises deceased staffer as dependable, pledges family support
Deputy President William Ruto Friday paid tribute to his staff member Anthony Kariuki, describing him as sharp, dependable, industrious, committed and creative.
He said Kariuki was a man with a tremendous sense of intellect and full of positive attitude.
“In any assignment he (Anthony) was involved, you knew it would turn out to be better. He made priceless contributions to my office,” said Ruto, adding that he (Kariuki) was inimitable.
The DP spoke during Kariuki's funeral service at PCEA Ngundu Church in Kamulu, Machakos county.
He was accompanied by Meru Senator Mithika Linturi, Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, and his Buuri counterpart Mugambi Rindikiri.
While pledging to support the family, Ruto regretted that he had lost a valued and professional worker.
Kariuki died last week in an accident on Outering Road. Until his demise, he was the Deputy Director of Communications at the Office of the Deputy President.
Ruto's Communication Secretary David Mugonyi eulogised Kariuki as focused, popular and a highly-engaging peer.
