President Uhuru Kenyatta has on Tuesday eulogized the late Juja MP Francis Munyua Waititu as a patriotic leader who heard the qualities of a true leader.
The Head of State was speaking during the burial ceremony of the late Legislator at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) grounds describing him as a generous leader without any discrimination.
“He never failed to do good. He never waited to be asked for help but rather he willingly offered to support anyone who was in need. He would offer support before being asked,” Said President Uhuru Kenyatta.

President Uhuru noted how the late MP utilized resources earning himself re-election something that has termed as an uphill task in Kiambu County.
““It’s never easy for a person to be re-elected especially here in Kiambu County. If you see a person being elected twice it means that people knew and understood him,” Said President Uhuru.
Other leaders have been urged to follow the steps of Hon. Waititu of impacting people and stay away from politics and rather focus on development.
“He has taught us that a leader is one who can stand and work for his people. ‘Wakapee’ never stole even a penny from the Government. He was a leader who cherished peace and unity of the people he led,” Said the Head of State.
Also in attendance was National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi who remembered the late MP a nationalist who supported government business at the House.
“When it came to anything touching the Government, the late Francis Waititu didn’t waste time but supported the Government position to the end. He was such an ardent supporter of you (the President) and I will miss him dearly,” Said Speaker Justin Muturi.
