On Friday, April 22, the country was thrown into mourning following the demise of Kenya’s third President Mwai Kibaki.
Kibaki who has been touted as the most cherished president of the 21st century died aged 90.
While Kenyans mourn the late retired President Mwai Kibaki as the no-nonsense president, who never tolerated jokes in public, his grandkids have a different side of the former head of state.
According to Kibaki’s eldest daughter-in-law and wife to Jimmy, Kibaki’s grandchildren were the most heard hit following the announcement of his demise by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“The grandchildren were hit the hardest since they are younger but with time we will be able to bear the burden and the void that Mzee has left,” Jimmy’s wife said in an interview with Citizen TV.
The struggle by his grandkids to come to terms with the demise of their grandfather is a testament that President Uhuru’s predecessor was a loving grandfather.
While Kenyans knew late president Mwai Kibaki as a down-to-earth statesman who ruled the country for a whole decade, several heartwarming photos showed that Kibaki loved spending quality time with his grandkids despite his busy schedule.
