“With deep sorrow, I would like to announce on behalf of the Ogeto family that Evans has passed away with the Lord. May Almighty God let his soul rest in peace. Thank you for your continued support, “said Ken.

In his message of comfort, the president mourned the attorney as a solid and reliable legal scholar who leaves a rich legacy of professional success.
“It is unfortunate that we have lost Evans to the cruel hand of death after a long illness. He was one of the leading lawyers in our country who is a reliable resource, as can be seen from his successes”, dared the President said.
In addition to his professional practice, Evans Monari served in several public offices, including in 2016 on the selection committee of the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission (IEBC).
