Trained in the British colonial culture of strict discipline, obedience to leadership and commitment to work, Nyachae knew no other way.

Mourners  politicians, government officials and family members  eulogised him on Thursday as a natural leader who valued results-oriented leadership and who administered discipline without hesitation.

He brought the strictness home, and everyone, including his wives, submitted lovingly. At the same time, his heart was overflowing with compassion and generosity.

As for strictness, after retiring from civil service service in the 80s his wife Grace Wamuyu was still employed. But he ordered her to resign in 1984 to be in charge of his new business, Sansora Limited, which he had set up in Kisii.

"I knew it was not a request. It was an order," Wamuyu told mourners during a service to honour the politician in Nairobi.
