Nyeri Governor Mr Gakuru died earlier today after a grisly road accident in Kabati along Thika- Murang’a Highway.
The Mercedes Benz that the governor was traveling in rammed into a road barrier. The driver was rescued but in a critical condition.
Mr Gakuru died at Thika Level 5 Hospital while under going treatment. This comes barely three months after he won the August 8th Elections beating his rival Wamathai by huge margin.
The county assembly speaker has confirmed that the Governor, driver and his body guard sustained serious injuries after the early morning accident.
Earlier this year, the former Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua also died while undergoing treatment in a Londo Hospital.
He was headed to Nairobi for a talk show. Our condolences to the family and friends.
