The Nyeri Governor, Dr.Patrick Gakuru passed on after he was involved in a grisly road accident along Kabati in the Muranga-Thika Highway while heading to Nairobi for a talk show at (Inooro Tv.). Governor Gakuru’s Mercedes Benz crashed into an open end of a guardrail, which pierced through the length of the vehicle to the boot.
He was in the vehicle alongside three other occupants; his personal assistant, his bodyguard, and his driver. Nyeri County Assembly Speaker John Kaguchia has confirmed that the Nyeri Governor and his driver have suffered serious injuries after the Tuesday early morning road crash. The Governor passed on while receiving treatment at Thika Level V Hospital awaiting transfer through airlift.
Gakuru had won the Nyeri gubernatorial seat in August beating former governor Samuel Wamathai, who had assumed office upon the death of the first Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua. Gachagua passed on earlier this year while receiving treatment in London. It was learned that the deceased Governor was sworn in yesterday. More news will be made available as soon as they reach #jmexclusives news desk. May his soul Rest in Eternal Peace.
