Nyeri governor dead after horror accident while heading to city”

Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru died on Tuesday morning in a road accident on the Thika-Murang'a Highway.

He was in the vehicle alongside two other occupants.

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.

"Council of Governors is in the process of airlifting his Excellency Wahome Gakuru from Thika Level 5 Hospital to Nairobi Hospital", read a statement from the Council of Governors.

Gakuru was on his way to Nairobi for talk shows with a vernacular radio and TV.

Gakuru becomes the second Nyeri Governor to pass on while in office after the late Nderitu Gachagua who died previous year in February at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London while undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer.

Photos from the scene of the accident depict the severity of the accident.

The point of impact where Governor Wahome Gakuru's Mercedes hit a guardrail at Kabati on Thika Murangá road. Gakuru succumbed to his injuries as medics were preparing to airlift him to Nairobi.
