Message of Condolence from H.E Gil Haskel:
It is with deep sorrow that I express my heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, legal fraternity and the people of Kenya following the sudden and untimely demise of my friend Hon. Mutula Kilonzo.
Mr. Kilonzo’s death has robbed Kenya off a great leader and astute Senior counsel, a great politician and leader who loved Kenya and had a passion for his job.
Hon. Mutula Kilonzo was a great friend of the Embassy of Israel and of the State of Israel, and was determined to enhance the cordial relations that exists between the two countries.
When he served as Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs, he championed and oversaw an exchange programme between the Kenyan Judicial system and the Israeli Judicial system, which is on-going to date.
When in the Education docket, the Minister spearheaded the collaboration of the Ministry of Education in Kenya and the Ministry of Education in Israel through the Education for Sustainable Development Program scheduled to run for four years.

Indeed the late Senator needs a standing ovation for a job well done in his life time. His passing on has not only left a void in our lives, but in the hearts of everyone who knew him
My sincere thoughts and prayers are with his family and the people of Kenya.
May his soul rest in eternal peace.
Ambassador of Israel
