Prominent lawmaker succumbs to Covid-19

The ruling Jubilee party and Muguga ward are in mourning following the death of their area Member of County Assembly Eliud Ngugi Ngige.

The legislator well known as Thithia passed away earlier today at the Kenyatta University Teaching referral and research hospital while undergoing treatment.

Reports indicate that the Jubilee party officials in Kiambu confirmed Ngige’s passing on due to Covid-19 complications after being admitted at the facility for a few days.

Until his death, Eliud was a member of the Committee on County Public Service and Administration. 

The Uhuru Kenyatta-led party is yet to give an official statement on the death of the lawmaker, with messages of comfort and condolences currently streaming in.

“What a sad morning! Kiambu MCA Eliud Ngugi has passed on. May his soul rest in peace,” one Douglas said. 

This comes weeks after the death of Juja Member of Parliament Francis Munyua Waititu, after a long and unsuccessful battle with brain cancer.

Munyua died at the Nairobi’s MP Shah hospital, during his burial President Kenyatta eulogized him as a eulogized Waititu as a progressive, trusted, and devoted leader and said that the MP continuously raised public awareness of the disease.

“We’ve lost a very progressive, trusted, and committed leader whose public actions always reflected the interests of his constituents. 

“It is because of the trust and love that the people of Juja had for Hon Waititu that they entrusted him with a second term in a very competitive election despite his illness,” the President said then.
