Late former Mt Elgon MP John Serut’s daughter, Michelle Serut on Wednesday, February 16 penned an emotional message to mourn her departed dad.
Through her Twitter page, Michelle regretted the demise of her dad, noting that she was angry with the fact that he will not be around to see her children.
She, however, noted that she will always love him and make him proud even in his absence.
“Rest in peace to the love of my life. I hate that you won’t see my children. I hate that you won’t get to see the woman I become but I’ll make you proud. I love you dad,” Michelle wrote.
Serut took his final bow on Wednesday morning, February 16 at the Nairobi Hospital after a long battle with cancer.
In October 2021, Michelle had appealed to Kenyans to help offset her father’s hospital bill which stood at KSh 20 million.
She disclosed that her father was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in January 2020 and had been in and out of the hospital.
“We have had bills totalling to about 20 million since his diagnosis and have handled it as a family so far. We are now slightly stretched and therefore asking your help in catering for his bills hence this fundraiser,” she said in part.
Serut was first elected Mt Elgon MP during the 2002 General Election on a KANU party ticket.
However, he was defeated by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) candidate Fred Chesebe Kapondi in the next elections of 2007.
Serut would in 2013 trounce Kapondi before the latter floored him in 2017 after he vied on a Jubilee Party ticket.
