Nyeri Governor Wahome Gakuru died on Tuesday morning following a grisly road accident at Makenji along the Thika-Sagana highway.
He was taken to Thika Level 5 Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries as he awaited transfer to Nairobi Hospital.
The people of Nyeri were devastated as Gakuru became the second Governor to die within the span of a year, following the passing of Nderitu Gachagua in February at a London hospital.
Governor Gakuru had sent out inspiring messages to his followers on Twitter days to his death.
He quoted the scripture as he asked people to live lives full of love and respect God.
The Governor was on his way to Nairobi for a radio interview when the accident occurred.
