President Uhuru Kenyatta has mourned the death of Peter Kariuki Njogu who was a prominent MCA in Muranga County.

The President’s condolence message was extended to the family and the people of the wider Muranga County on Thursday morning.

In his message, President Kenyatta said the late Njogu was a dedicated brave leader who despite his disability went beyond the call of duty to serve and empower the people he represented and all Kenyans at large.

He said the country had lost a rare intellectual who was committed to improving the welfare of people living with disability.

The president recalled the time he met the late Njogu during the issuance of title deeds in Murang’a noting that he was an amiable person who was easily accessible to all.

“The late Njogu will be greatly missed not only by the Murang’a residents but also Kenyans who interacted with him,” said the President.

He prayed to God to give comfort to the family and the residents of Murang’a County at this difficult time.

The nominated MCA died on Monday at Aga Khan Hospital after suffering from difficulty in breathing.
