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.
Mr Gachagua has been out of the country since late 2016 after he survived an impeachment motion against him.
During his long absence, there were rumours that Mr Gachagua had stepped down from the race to defend his Nyeri County seat due to failing health.
