TIGER POWER, Kenya’s strongest man who could pull a car with his teeth is DEAD (PHOTOs)

Thursday, January 03, 2019- Conrad Njeru Karukenya popularly known as Tiger Power is dead.

The man who was once dubbed Kenya’s ‘strongest man’ due to his extra-ordinary strength died aged 72 at Consolata Mission Hospital in Embu while undergoing treatment.

“He has been battling different ailments since 2015, the reason he had to quit power lifting. He has had kidney failure, lung and heart complications. However, when we were taking him to the hospital on Monday, he was still a man of strength. He even called his children alerting them that he was going to hospital,” his brother Ansemoli Kathuri disclosed.

During his prime, Tiger Power mesmerized many with his incredible stunts such as pulling a car with his teeth, using his teeth to break iron nails, and letting a Land Rover roll over him unscathed.

"All is do is train hard, I wake up everyday at four in the morning, do lots of exercises and eat well. I don't drink, smoke and indulge in life's excesses,'' he once said in an interview.

Tiger Power was awarded a Head of State Commendation by former president Mwai Kibaki.

Last year, he graduated with a Bachelor in Education (Early Childhood Education) from Kenyatta University and had a dream of starting his own school.
