Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru passes on after a horrific road accident Tuesday morning at Kabati, along Thika-Murang'a road while heading to Nairobi for a talk show. Nyeri County Assembly Speaker John Kaguchia has confirmed that the Governor, his driver and bodyguard suffered serious injuries after the early morning accident and were undergoing treatment. Council of Governors was in the process of airlifting Wahome Gakuru from Thika Level 5 Hospital to Nairobi Hospital. Governor Wahome has been taken to Lee funeral home as the other two are admitted to hospital. The former Vision 2030 director garnered 280,037 votes against Samuel Wamathai’s 85,316 to take the seat he missed in 2013. The governor’s technocrat background had put him in good stead to deal with a range of issues in his in-tray, having taken over a government that for the better part of the past five years was almost dysfunctional owing to incessant wrangles between the executive and members of the county assembly (MCAs). Nyeri residents looked up to Gakuru, after a harsh critic of the outgoing administration, for solutions, especially in spurring development and changing the fortunes of the ailing coffee and tea sectors in the county.
