Kenyans are awoken to a double tragedy, as another ally of Deputy President William Ruto dies just hours after an ODM MP died tragically.
According to sources, Karima MCA Reuben Wahome Kabera died just hours after Rabai MP William Kamoti’s death was announced.
Kabera died while being treated at Mt Kenya Hospital, and Kamoti perished in a car accident on the Mombasa-Malindi route.
Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga praised the late Kabera as a jovial and outgoing person who carried the needs and aspirations of the Karima people at his heart. He was elected under the Jubilee party ticket.
On the other hand, Rabai Member of Parliament William Kamoti was confirmed dead after a tragic road accident.
Kilifi North police boss Jonathan Koech said the accident occurred at Komaza black spot on the Kilifi-Mombasa Highway on Sunday evening.
Kamoti’s death occurred immediately after IEBC cleared him to defend his seat on an Orange Democratic Movement party ticket in the August 9 polls.
According to witnesses, the legislator’s vehicle was hit by a lorry at around 9.40 pm. His driver, who sustained injuries, is admitted to the Kilifi County Referral Hospital. The MP’s body was moved to the hospital’s mortuary.
Ganze MP Teddy Mwambire said that Kilifi County had lost a great leader.
Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi described the lawmaker as a devoted and hardworking leader.
