We are saddened to announce that Former Gem MP Kenya, Jakoyo Midiwo has passed away.
His family on Monday confirmed the news of the former MP.
He was the founder and member of the change Movement and a three times member of parliament for Gen Hon.
Jakoyo according to The ODM Party was a defender of the party ad he never shied away from speaking the truth.
He belonged to the Orange Democratic Movement and was elected to represent the Gem Constituency in the National Assembly of Kenya since the 2007 Kenyan parliamentary election.
Jakoyo’s death is coming just few hours after Kenyan businessman Chris Kirubi was reported dead after a long battle with cancer
Midiwo is the cousin of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
The former lawmaker first joined public service in 2007 after winning the general elections to represent the Constituency of Gem at the National Assembly under the ODM banner.
After a hiatus from politics, Midiwo made a political comeback after a crucial role in the Building Bridges Initiative.
Midiwo was appointed by Raila to spearhead ODM’s signature drive in the Nyanza region.
The former Gem MP had been in the political cold after he lost his seat in the 2017 General Election which was preceded by a fallout with the ODM leader.
Initial reports claimed that the officers were after Midiwo’s driver over an alleged traffic offense. They then followed him all the way to the former Gem MP’s house leading up to the confrontation.
The former ODM insider has faced financial trouble with the Kisumu County Government demanding Ksh876,000 as rent for a house owned by the devolved unit.
In October 2020, the county government threatened to evict Midiwo alongside other politicians who are said to have rent arrears running into millions of shillings.
In early 2020, Midiwo had a run-in with law enforcers where he was assaulted by four police officers at his Milimani home.
The officer reportedly got into a scuffle with the former legislator after a disagreement, following which they allegedly battered him alongside his driver.
