It is with deep sadness that we, Chiromo comrades and the entire scientists’ league woke up this morning to learn about your demise Cde Kibet. We condole with your family and friends in this trying moment. For sure, the death of one comrade is the death of all comrades. All for one and one for all. As scientists we share a common interest in making life better while we are on Earth. Rest in Peace comrade. Till we meet again.
It is with a heavy heart that I have learned of the untimely demise of my friend, an ally to many. Indeed a star has been dimmed, my world has shrunk and the comrades fraternity is weakened and at pains; the loss is numbing and unbearable. Ian Kibet has taken the final bow. Kibet fell from the third floor of Mamlaka A hall of residence. He was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, apparently he succumbed to his injuries.
Death has robbed us a young man full of potential whose unmatched achievements at such a young age has left a legacy and a hole in our hearts, It is hard to say Rest in Peace, but I can say Return If Possible (R.I.P). To the bereaved family we can only imagine your anguish but we promise to keep you in prayer that God affords you the strength during this hard time. Eng. Kibet Shine on your way buddy for you are the Geospatial Engineer the world never had. Rest well.
May Ian Rest in Eternal peace.
