The Jersey Patriot Newsgroup, a website that was started to serve the Kenyan Community in the diaspora wishes to send their deepest condolences to the family of the late Geofrey Kilibwa. This newsletter was particularly shaken to learn the circumstances that led to the untimely death of the said son of Kenya.
Jersey Patriot also understands that the family, represented in the U.S by his sister Dr. Magret Kilibwa, is going through a very hard time to even accept the fact that the energetic, handsome, very well spoken father of four adult children died the way he did. Dr. Kilibwa has paid a glowing tribute to her brother, a person who though stayed in the U.S for many years always paid tuition for his children, all of whom have completed University Education in Kenya. Margret Kilibwa has also paid tribute to the Kenyan community in New Jersey, who have stood with her at this very difficult time.
With all these attributes, we in this newsletter have been shocked by the insinuations in the Daily Nation of Kenya and another website in the U.S that somehow suggest that there was foul play in the death of Mr. Kilibwa. In our opinion, this causes uncertainty and unnecessary pain to the already deeply shaken family. It is our opinion that if anyone has any information that can be helpful to any investigation should report to the police detectives or any other relevant government authority without delay.
We are therefore appealing to the Kenyan Community to ignore the unfounded rumours and give the family peace by donating generously whatever they can so that the remains of Mr. Kilibwa may be airlifted to Kenya where the family could give him a fitting farewell.
