Langas Primary School headteacher Chrispine Owako was laid to rest in his rural home in Ugunja, Siaya County on Saturday.
Owako died a few weeks ago.
He served Langas Primary School for several years and Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi who attended the final sendoff described him as a visionary and development-oriented leader.
Sudi, who initiated several development projects at Langas Primary School during the leadership of the late headteacher further said Owako had left an unmatched legacy, not only at the school but also at the Langas community at large.
“Attending a funeral of my friend The late Chrispine Owako. He was the headteacher to Langas Primary School,” Sudi posted on his official Facebook page.
“He left an unmatched legacy while serving Langas Primary and community at large. We will always remember the ever-charming, visionary, and development-oriented man. May the good Lord continue comforting the family during this time of grief,” he added.
Langas Primary School is one of the public institutions with the highest number of pupils and serves the densely populated Langas estate.
The Kapseret MP has last week visited the family of the late Owako where he delivered his message of sympathy and comfort.
“The late Chrispine Owako was a hardworking and resourceful headteacher who served Langas Primary School and the entire community with diligence and dedication. We partnered together when developing various infrastructural projects within the school and Langas as a whole. He left an indelible mark of service to great people of Langas,” Sudi said.
One of the major infrastructural development that the legislator has initiated at the Langas Primary school is the Ksh15 million one-storey building with 18 classes that he opened in 2018.
The building was fully funded by the Kapseret National Government-Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF) kitty.
