NYERI GOVERNOR WAHOME GAKURU DIES AFTER GRISLY ROAD ACCIDENT
Nyeri County is mourning the death of their Governor, Dr Wahome Gakuru. He passed away following a grisly road accident, along the Thika-Sagana highway in Murang’a County, on Tuesday morning.
The governor was on his way to Nairobi for talk shows with Kameme radio and TV, in the company of his bodyguard, his personal assistant and his driver. The cause of the accident has been identified as a Tyre-burst during the heavy downpour.
He was rushed to Thika Level 5 Hospital for emergency treatment, but sadly passed away as he was on the point of being flown to Nairobi for specialized care.
His death was confirmed by Muranga’s county commissioner, John Elung’ata. Dr. Gakuru is the second Nyeri governor to die in office, after his predecessor Nderitu Gachagua, who passed away in February this year.
