Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru dies in road accident
Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru is dead.
Governor Gakuru passed on moments after he was involved in a grisly road accident in Kabati on the Thika-Kenol highway.
The governor’s Mercedez Benz, which was headed to Nairobi, lost control, veered off the road and rammed into the guard rail which speared through the vehicle.
The governor and his driver were rushed to Thika Level 5 Hospital and were set to be flown to Nairobi Hospital for further treatment.
Gakuru becomes the second Nyeri Governor to pass on while in office after the late Nderitu Gachagua who died last year in February at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London while undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer.
Governor Gakuru, who is the former vision 2030 director, was travelling to Nairobi for a talk show on Inooro TV.
