President Kenyatta said Bush will be remembered for his commitment to world peace and stability, democracy and freedom for which he dedicated his entire life.

Mr Kenyatta said the world has lost an astute statesman and public servant, business icon and a family man who will be emulated by many across the globe.

“The 41st President of the United States has left behind a globally distinctive record in the military, international politics, business and family spheres all wrapped up in one”, said President Kenyatta.

Bush’s death comes just eight months after the passing of his wife and first lady Barbara Bush, to whom he was married for 73 years.

The former American president navigated the United States through the largely peaceful fall of their arch rival the Soviet Union in 1989 and defeated Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein two years later when he invaded Kuwait.
