Jakoyo Midiwo Is Dead

Former Gem Constituency member of parliament Hon. Washington Jakoyo Midiwo is dead, Daily Updates Africa understands.

Our Kisumu Region correspondent spoke to the family members of Jakoyo who confirmed that he had succumbed after a long period of illness.

Jakoyo Midiwo was 54 years old at the time of his death. He was a three time member of parliament who served the people of Gem until he was unseated by the current MP Hon. Elisha Otieno.

Midiwo was an Orange Democratic Movement member who was known for his passionate debates in and out of parliament.

It is noted that Midiwo lost his seat due to his political affiliations with former Rarieda MP Nicholas Gumbo who was running for the Siaya County governor seat. 

On the other side was the incumbent governor Rasanga who had the support of former MP Oburu Odinga.

Many leaders including Uhuru Kenyatta, Raila Odinga, Professor Anyang' Nyong'o, Wycliffe Oparanya, among many others took to social media to send their condolences to the family of Jakoyo Midiwo.

May he rest in peace.
