Jane Muthoni Leitich’s Candle Burns Out

Death robbed the aviation fraternity of yet another expert, Mrs. Jane Muthoni Leitich, formerly the Chief Legal Officer of Kenya Civil Aviation Authority and a member of the legal team assisting CASSOA with legal expertise during Working Group Meetings. The energetic Jane Muthoni succumbed to cancer on 7th January 2017 and will be laid to rest on 13th January 2017 after a requiem mass at Purpose Centre Church in Nairobi, Kenya.

To the CASSOA family, the name Jane Muthoni Leitich is synonymous with hard work and diligence in the CASSOA working group meetings deliberating on draft harmonised EAC Regulations and Technical Guidance Materials. She was a friend to everyone both because of her knowledge in legal affairs as well as her humourous attitude towards all who crossed her path. She participated in CASSOA activities from 2008 till the time of her death in January 2017. She is survived with two children and a husband.

Our deepest sympathy go to her husband Mr. Leitich, children, and her paternal and maternal families, plus all her colleagues at Kenya CAA. She will always be remembered with fondness.
