Wednesday, August 28, 2019- The dreaded monster that is cancer has claimed yet another Kenyan leader-Hassan Ole Kamwaro, former Transport and Licensing Board Chairman.
Kamwaro, who had been battling two types of cancer - throat cancer and lymphoma (cancer of the lymphnodes) succumbed in the United States where he had been undergoing treatment.
He was the TLB chairman during the famous Michuki rules and was credited alongside, the late John Michuki, for bringing sanity-albeit short lived, in the chaotic Matatu sector.
In 2007, he vied for Narok North parliamentary seat but lost to the late Maasai supremo, William Ole Ntimama.
Kamwaro was reappointed back to TLB in 2010 by former President Kibaki and served until 2012 when TLB Act was amended to form the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).
He becomes the latest prominent leader to succumb to cancer after former Kibra MP Ken Okoth and former Bomet Governor, Joyce Laboso.
He was 75 years old at the time of his demise.
