Former Uasin Gishu County Assembly Speaker Isaac Terer has paid an emotional tribute to his late aide Jude Kiplagat
In a Facebook post, Terer said Jude, who passed away in India while undergoing treatment for Leukemia, was always jovial,full of life and that his zeal and energy is inspirational to many.
“He was always jovial,full of life and his zeal and energy was and remains inspirational to many in Kesses and beyond,”said Terer in his post.
“His strength, resilience, courage and hope even at his lowest moments in life described what kind of a gentleman he was,”he added.
Jude’s body arrived from India on Thursday night and was this morning transported to Eldoret Hospital mortuary awaiting final send off next week.
Here is his full tribute to Jude Kiplagat:
REALITY, I couldn’t come to terms that my aide Jude Kiplagat is no more. I had to be patient while keeping my faith lively only until I received his body at Eldoret Hospital morgue. I had no energy or strength to bear such a loss.
JUDE has been more than an aide to me as we’ve been through a lot together in my political journey. I held his hand and supported him as my son. It’s sad and agonizing that he couldn’t live up to his DREAMS.
He was always jovial,full of life and his zeal & energy was and remains inspirational to many in Kesses and beyond.
His strength, resilience, courage and hope even at his lowest moments in life described what kind of a gentleman he was.
A Human Being can be crafted from ZERO to HERO.
Memories of his life will never depart me, the moments we cherished together is now a reality that I will never see him again. Rest Well KAKA.
Lastly, Jude deserves a descent send-off. We will be congregating at Kesses Shopping Centre for fundraiser on Sunday, 4th October, 2020 and subsequently his burial on Friday, 9th October, 2020.
God bless you all as you purpose to attend and support us. Rest in Eternal peace my son.
