"...he told me don’t worry you will get the books and for sure four weeks, a month late, that was in July, he arrived with a land rover full of books for the girls. That was the beginning of our journey in education so by the end of 1985 we had started seven secondary schools for the girls together."

"Here lies a Kenyan who has touched the lives of very many people and I am glad that I represent the Western Kenya people from Trans-Nzoia to speak here in honor of a great leader, a great politician, a great philosopher. May his soul rest in peace."
Dr Sally Kosgey
"I could describe Honourable Biwot with so many adjectives but I will tell you this, he was discrete, I often read that he was secretive, I think that was the wrong word - he was discreet. He was also a really fair person. He was in my view one of the cleverest Kenyans that have lived in our country. "
Hon. Henry Kosgey
"”]. So Biwot had no secret. This man was shrewed and astute which is an adjective but above all he was generous and he had a heart. You know people look at him because probably he kept quiet sometimes , he had a heart , a human heart and he was humorous as well ."
Mrs Hannie Biwott
"Now I told you already before he never tried to take revenge on the people who were bad to him, he always forgave, he bore no grudge. I wanted my family to stand here, I wanted to tell you that even me, we bear no grudge."
"Honourable Biwott has left a memorable legacy not just in Kenya but most importantly in the common market for Eastern and Southern Africa, COMESA, indeed we recall his towering contribution to the launch of the COMESA free trade area in the year 2000"
"And I can say this to the family, when Honourable Biwott used to come to functions with us, the first thing he would say to the people, support your Senator because he is our leader give him a chance because politics is hard"
Gideon Moi (on behalf of his father)
". With this knowledge Biwott therefore became one of the most effective and dependable public servants. As we bid farewell to this great Kenyan I pray to God to give the bereaved family the necessary fortitude to bare the loss”.
"Not always a popular man in the room but you could not fault his strategic thinking, resourcefulness and results orientation. For that reason many things can be credited to Biwott - schools , businesses , educational constituents [Check] , roads , bridges you name it , he leaves a powerful legacy and for that reason we gather here today to bid him farewell. "
Pres. Uhuru Kenyatta Pt1
"… when the history of this country is written there will be many unsung heroes, but I want to tell you that there are men and women in this country who quietly but firmly and with confidence are responsible for what Kenya is today, a sound country and a stable country with a growing economy and Nicholas Biwott is one of those gentlemen."
Pres. Uhuru Kenyatta Pt2
"And take courage in the knowledge that nobody throws stones at a tree that bares no fruit. They only throw stones at a tree that has fruit. Nicholas Biwott was a tree that had fruit that will bear for this country for many,many years to come."
