Murang’a County Commissioner John Elung’ata also confirmed the cause indicating the area is a black spot and most motorists tend to lose control, especially whenever it rains.
The Police also revealed that the governor’s car had four occupants at the time of crash – the deceased, his assistant Albert Kaguru, his bodyguard Ahmed Abdi and the driver Samuel Kinyanjui.
The bodyguard and his personal assistant are reported to be in critical condition, while the driver is said to be in good condition.
He becomes the second Nyeri Governor to die while in office.
Early this year, former Governor Nderitu Gachagua passed on while receiving treatment at London Hospital
