, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 27 – The family of the late Wamalwa Kijana is expected to outline the arrangements for the burial of his widow Yvonne Wamalwa Saturday morning at their home in Karen.

Among top government officials who mourned the late Yvonne were Deputy President William Ruto, and Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed, who called her a reliable diplomat.
