Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso has died.
Laboso, 58 succumbed to cancer Monday afternoon at the Nairobi Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where she was admitted, her family said.
Her death comes barely two weeks after she returned to the country from India where she had gone to seek cancer treatment.
Her body has been moved to the Lee funeral home.
Earlier on Monday, her communication officer had issued a statement warning that visits to her hospital bed had been restricted.
“The governor is recuperating and is under observation by her doctors who have recommended her enough rest and limited visitation for speedy recovery,” County Communications Director Ezra Kirui said in the statement.
Her death comes a few days after that of Kibra MP Ken Okoth who also succumbed to cancer
