Mwai Kibaki’s age, rather than his illness at the age of 90, is blamed for his death.
Kenya’s former president, Mwai Kibaki, died at the age of 90. His illustrious political career was marred when he was elected to a second term as president, which was followed by deadly post-election rioting.
Mwai Kibaki Illness & Death Cause
Mwai Kibaki, Kenya’s third president, died at the age of 90 after managing the East African giant for more than a decade and supervising some of the country’s bloodiest and most corrupt years, as well as introducing a new constitution.
Neither the cause of his death nor the nature of his illness have been disclosed, implying that the president died of old age.
Kibaki was a sharp-witted, shrewd, and experienced politician who had been active in politics since Kenya’s independence. He served as President from 2002 until 2013.
President Kibaki would be remembered as Kenya’s gentleman, a magnificent debater whose eloquence, wit, and charm won the day time and time again, according to his successor, President Uhuru Kenyatta. It was his statement on Friday confirming his predecessor’s death.
Wife and children of Mwai Kibaki
In 1961, Kibaki married Lucy Muthoni, the daughter of a minister and a high school principal.
Lucy Muthoni was born in 1936. Her parents were Rev. John Kagai, a Presbyterian Church of East Africa preacher, and Rose Nyachomba, a resident of Mukurwe-ini, Nyeri County, Kenya.
She graduated from Alliance Girls High School and went on to study education at Kamwenja Teachers College and subsequently Kambui College in Kiambu, where she eventually became the principal.
Judy Wanjiku, Jimmy Kibaki, David Kagai, and Tony Githinji are the names of Lucy and Mwai’s four children. Her grandchildren were Mwai Kibaki Jr., Sean Andrew, Rachael Muthoni, and others. Kibaki is a sponsor of the Kenya Girl Guides Association.
Mwai Kibaki’s net worth
Mwai Kibaki was claimed to have a net worth of $60 million at the time of his death.
He was a Kenyan politician who served as the third President of the country from December 2002 until April 2013. Kibaki served as Vice-President of Kenya for eleven years, from 1978 to 1988, under President Daniel Arap Moi.
He was also a cabinet minister under the Kenyatta and Moi regimes. He ran for president twice, in 1992 and 1997, but lost both times. He was the Leader of the Official Opposition in Parliament from 1998 until 2002.
