President Uhuru Kenyatta has mourned Justice Louis Onguto, describing him as a person who was devoted to dispensing justice without fear or favour.
In his condolence message to the family, friends and relatives, President Kenyatta said the late Justice Onguto was a judge committed to entrenching the rule of law in the country.
“To him, the future and sustainability of the legal profession and rule of law was key to the administration of justice,” said President Kenyatta.
“Certainly, he understood what it meant to dispense justice without prejudice. He followed and practised what was right as per the evidence adduced before the court,” the President said in his condolence message.
The judge collapsed after a gym session at Parklands Sports Club on Thursday and was pronounced dead at MP Shah Hospital.
President Kenyatta said in all the stations he served, Justice Onguto performed his duties professionally and ensured justice was delivered.
The President prayed to God to comfort and give fortitude to the family at this trying moment.
