Despite earlier information that Ndemo Nyagarama, the first born son to Nyamira County boss John Nyagarama, died from acute meningitis, Council of Governors chair Josephat Nanok has issued a contradicting statement.

Ndemo,44, died on Monday evening after months in Nairobi Hospital where he had been admitted in ICU.

According to close relatives of the deceased who spoke to The Star in anonymity,Mr Ndemo had experienced chest pains and difficulty in breathing, resulting from acute meningitis.

“He could not breathe with ease and has been complaining of chest pains. The situation was not good at all. Let him rest in peace,” the family member, who spoke in confidence, said.
