Kenyans mourn Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua
Kenyans on various social media platforms united in grief following the death of Nyeri Governor Nderitu Gachagua on Friday morning.
Mr Nderitu died in a London hospital in the early hours of Friday while undergoing treatment for pancreatic cancer.
Here are some of the condolence messages.
