Nyeri governor: CoG wants police to probe cause of accident

The Council of Governors (CoG) wants police to establish the cause of fatal road accident that claimed the life of Nyeri governor Dr Wahome Gakuru .

Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko, speaking on behalf of his colleagues, told journalists that they want the circumstance of the accident investigated.

“I’m asking the CID director Ndegwa Muhoro to thoroughly investigate this incident,” Mr Sonko said.

Others at the media briefing at Serena Hotel were  Turkana governor Josphat Nanok, Muranga governor Mwangi wa Iria and Kirinyaga governor Anne Waruru

“I’m also against that law that states the deputy governor should automatically take over from the governor in the case of death. Like in this case, I’m told the deputy governor could be sworn in tomorrow. That law needs to be changed even if we go for a referendum,” said Mr Sonko.

CoG chairman Josephat Nanok has called a full council meeting Wednesday morning to deliberate on  Dr Gakuru’s burial arrangements.
