0 459

The late Kwale Senator Boy Juma Boy is set to be buried Monday at Vanga, Kwale County.

Boy died at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi on Sunday, following a short illness.

He is said to have been taken to a Mombasa hospital after falling sick early this week.

He was later transferred to Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi where he died.

Boy became the youngest MP when he succeeded his father, Juma Boy, as Matuga MP in 1983.

Boy senior died before the election which would have seen him vie for Kwale Central MP. He had served in Matuga since 1974.

Boy junior retained the Matuga seat in the 1988 and 1992 elections but lost in 1997 and 2002 and did not vie in 2007. He once served as Kanu Chief Whip.

He was elected Kwale Senator in the March 4, 2013 general election, after garnering 60,886 votes against Chirau Mwakwere’s 41,753.

He will be remembered as an orator, often making captivating statements, which left the audience in stitches whenever he spoke in Kiswahili.

Boy had been a loyal supporter of the Opposition and did not spare those who disrespected leader Raila Odinga.
