Nakuru’s London Ward MCA, Sammy Karanja, has died.
Peter Palanga, the minority
leader in the Nakuru County Assembly, told K24
Digital that Karanja succumbed to a disorder of the pancreas at 10pm on
Wednesday, November 18. The late administrator was receiving treatment at the
Nakuru War Memorial Hospital.
“It is not true that
Karanja was suffering from COVID-19 as speculated,” said Palanga.
The deceased will be moved
to Umash Funeral Home located on the Nakuru-Nairobi Road at 9am on Thursday,
Karanja’s death comes nearly
two weeks after another MCA from Nakuru County died while receiving treatment
for a short illness. Hells Gate MCA, John Njuguna, alias Wa Susi died on
November 9 at the Nakuru Nursing Home Hospital.
