MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCE TO THE FAMILY, RELATIVES AND FRIENDS OF THE LATE DAME DAPHNE SHELDRICK

On December 11, 2018 In Statements and Speeches

It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of loss that I learnt of the death of Dame Daphne Sheldrick, and I join the local and global wildlife conservation fraternity in mourning her passing on. Dame Daphne Sheldrick made personal sacrifices towards the protection and conservation of our wildlife. Her death, therefore, is a great loss not only to her close family but also the entire country. We will remember Dame Daphne Sheldrick as a selfless and dedicated person who devoted her life to the service of our nation. Through the Daphne Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which she founded in 1977, her devotion to wildlife conservation will forever remain etched in our hearts. Let us all join hands in fighting poaching, and the illicit trade in wildlife trophies. As we mourn and pay homage to this visionary and exceptional conservation icon, let us also celebrate her life and achievements; her inspirational life will remain a great legacy to our country. I convey my deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to her family, relatives and friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you.   MARGARET KENYATTA
