Driver of the late Nyeri Governor speaks after the accident that killed his boss

Driver of the Mercedes Benz that claimed the life of Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru has survived and has finally revealed what caused the grisly accident.

Governor Gakuru died in the accident that occurred on Tuesday, November 7, along Muranga-Thika Highway.
39-year-old Samuel Kinyanjui Wanyaga recounted that he tried to avoid hitting a motorcycle rider when the car veered off the road and rammed into a guard rail.
Kinyanjui’s account was similar with an eye witness who had claimed he saw a motorbike rider carrying meat drive into the vehicle’s path.

“I was right behind the Governor’s car heading from Nyeri to Nairobi when I saw a boda-boda driver carrying a box of meat confuse the Governor’s driver. The motorbike suddenly appeared on the road from the side and there was a lorry ahead of him. So he tried to overtake the lorry by getting onto the lane where the Governor’s vehicle was. The Governor’s driver was shocked by the motorbike’s sudden appearance and so he swerved to avoid killing the boda-boda driver. But upon swerving the car hit the guard rails. The guard rails then became erect like a person and that is when I saw a tyre fly in the air. ” Eyewitness Dennis Muigai said as reported by Citizen TV.

The meek governor died while receiving treatment at the Thika Level 4 Hospital and his body was moved to the Lee Funeral Home,Nairobi.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and some governors gave statements following the death of Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru.

Nasa MPs led by Mark Nyamita (Uriri), Martin Owino (Ndhiwa) and Jared Okello (Nyando) represented opposition leaders and eulogised the former county boss.

The CoG appointed Mr Nanok to chair the late governor’s funeral committee at the national level alongside, Mr Mucheru, who was appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
