Kenyans, particularly Baringo South residents are reeling from sad news that they have lost their MP.
Grace Kipchoim won the Baringo South parliamentary seat on a Jubilee ticket. A feat she achieved while bedridden with stomach cancer.
Kipchoim was unable to campaign due to the illness but still triumphed, thanks to her distinguished service o her people.
She is credited with initiating numerous projects and being on the forefront on matters security.
Kipchoim becomes the second MP to succumb to cancer in the span of a few months. Kitui West MP Francis Nyenze lost the battle to cancer in December, 2017.
His wife, Edith Nyenze, won the subsequent by-election to succeed him.
May the Almighty give her family, friends and constituents fortitude to bear the loss.
