“Mzee will be buried in Kabenes because that is where he has been living. Some of our children have arrived home from diaspora while others are yet to arrive and that is the reason why we have put the funeral date in April, ” said Naomi Kibor, who is the businessman’s third wife.

Mzee Kibor, 88, died on Wednesday night, March 16, at St Luke’s Hospital in Eldoret after a long illness.

The family said that Kibor had been on medicated oxygen since October 2020 when he contracted Covid-19.
