Ayub Savula loses his daughter, as former Bomachoge MP dies in hospital

Lugari Member of Parliament, Ayub Savula, is mourning the death of his daughter who died on Wednesday night.

Ms Joan Chiri died at the Nairobi Hospital where she was receiving treatment.

Details of the cause of the death remain scanty.


At the same time, former Bomachoge MP Zephaniah Nyang’wara, who two years ago made an appeal to the public for financial help for medical reasons, is dead.

This comes almost a year after the immediate former Bomachoge MP Joel Onyancha passed on.

According to family members, the former MP died of kidney failure a condition he has been battling since 2015.


The family, through his first wife Ann Nyabonyi, further stated that he went to Kenyatta National Hospital on Wednesday but died moments later after admission.

He was first elected on a KANU ticket in 1997 and served until 2002.

His other two wives are Eunice Nyakemba and Teresa Kerubo.
