“Mzee John Etemesi was a humble man, diligent and hard-working public servant who left an indelible mark in all the regions of our country where he was posted to serve.
“Mzee Etemesi was a highly effective administrator who mentored many people in the public service to become excellent servant leaders,” the President eulogised.
The President prayed to God to give strength and fortitude to the family of the former administrator as they come to terms with his demise.
