The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Eastern -

Ki­tui Gover­nor Julius Malombe’s wife Edith Mawia (pic­tured) has said the elab­o­rate posthu­mous glo­ri­fi­ca­tion of peo­ple should end. “We must get used to prais­ing, ap­plaud­ing and re­ward­ing peo­ple who do re­mark­able things to im­prove or change lives when they are still alive. We do not need to wait and shower them with praise when they are dead,” Mawia said.
