Freedom fighter Field Marshal Muthoni wa Kirima has passed on.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Tuesday morning announced the death of the 92-year-old marshal, who was a top-ranking female fighter in the Mau Mau war.

“We recall with pride and sheer admiration, her exploits in leading the land and freedom army after the capture of freedom hero Dedan Kimathi whom she served as his personal assistant, after he was betrayed by Collaborators,” Gachagua wrote in a tweet.

“We remain indebted to these great heroes and heroines for the Sacrifice to liberate our land,” he added.

According to Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga, the Field Marshal was rushed to a hospital in Pangani after developing health complications. She was pronounced dead on arrival.

Kahiga added that Muthoni’s body will be moved to Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi.
