NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 13 – A Member of the County Assembly in Nyeri collapsed and died during the Jamhuri day celebrations within the county.

According to Nyeri County Assembly Speaker John Kaguchia, Peter Weru of Ruguru Ward collapsed while addressing a crowd at Ndunduini Primary School in Mathira Constituency.

Kaguchia said the MCA complained of weakness and requested to be taken to hospital.

He stated that the politician attended a county meeting on Monday and had no signs of illness.

Weru’s death comes a month after the second Nyeri governor Wahome Gakuru died on in a grisly road accident at Kabati, along Thika-Murang’a road while heading to Nairobi.

Gakuru was laid to rest at his Kirichu home in Nyeri last month.
