Friday September 27, 2019 -The family of former Nyeri Governor, the late Wahome Gakuru, is now reading mischief in the death of their kin in a greasily road accident along Thika Road, and is questioning the motive behind Deputy President William Ruto's involvement in the former Governor's burial arrangements.
In a hearing at an ongoing inquiry into Dr Gakuru's death, a representative of the family indicated that they were yet to understand why plans to bury the former Governor were rushed by none other than Ruto.
Martha Waweru told the inquiry that plans to bury the late Gakuru started immediately after he died; something that was very suspect considering the circumstances surrounding his death.
"Why was there a hurry to bury daktari (Governor Gakuru) and start the plans even before his body got cold?”
“Investigations and enquiry on what had happened would have been allowed but instead you moved on swiftly," Ms Waweru posed.
A witness who testified before the inquest on Thursday, Mr.Wachira Keen, stated that it is DP Ruto who ordered politicians to start planning as soon as they had viewed the body at the Lee Funeral Home.
"The Deputy President joined us at Lee funeral Home and he told us to start the governor’s send-off.”
“We were many leaders at the mortuary including Mr Sonko and Nyeri Senator Ephraim Maina," he stated.
He added that Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko chaired the first meeting, albeit, it was an informal one at the Serena Hotel.
