Her death comes less than three months after the late retired President Kibaki passed away in a hospital in Nairobi.

Kibaki died at the age of 90, and his death was announced by President Uhuru Kenyatta who declared a national mourning period after his death.

The third president of Kenya was described by many as Kenya's best ever president for the development projects, economic stability and government policies implemented during his tenure.
