Former Nairobi Woman Rep Rachel Shebesh lit up social media with her description of Edwin Abonyo, the widower of Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso.
Shebesh told mourners at Bomet Green Stadium on Friday how Governor Laboso used to describe Mr Abonyo as a ‘loving husband who never left her side during difficult times’.
Ms Shebesh praises did not end there.
She described Mr Abonyo as a man from a special cloth of husbands made heaven, unlike other husbands who ‘come walking’.
“Edwin you are a true reflection of love. Joyce told us that she is luckier than all of us combined and I can agree. You are those husbands that come from heaven; ours came walking.
“You came from heaven and she said it a thousand times Edwin. And so in case you did not know, know today all her conversations were about you and your love for her,” said Ms Shebesh.
