Kenyans were treated to bad news this morning when the newly elected Nyeri county Governor Wahome Gakuru was involved in a road accident along Nyeri-Thika road on his way to Nairobi. The accident led to the death of the Governor, his personal assistant and his bodyguard while the driver sustained serious injuries.
Eye witnesses say the car lost control and rammed into the rail besides the road. However, one eye witness Mr Denis Muigai narrates a completely different account of the events leading to the accident. He is said to have been part of the governor’s security detail and was in a car trailing the governor’s Mercedes Benz.
Social media has gone abuzz with news that this same eye witness in this accident was the same eye witness in the chopper crush at Lake Nakuru in which Captain Apolo Malowa lost his life along with John Mapozi, Sam Gitau and Antony Kipyegon, all of who worked for Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika.
Could there be more to these deaths?
