Certainly, we mourn a great man who cherished and worked for peaceful co-existence of the human race,” President Kenyatta said in a statement issued by the State House.
The President said he received the news of the death of Prince Philip with great sorrow and a deep sense of loss saying the People and the Government of the Republic of Kenya stands in solidarity with the Royal Family, the United Kingdom and the world in mourning the departed monarch.
