Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama is dead

Nyamira Governor John Obiero Nyagarama is dead.

The Governor died while undergoing treatment at the Nairobi Hospital, where he had been admitted for the past three weeks.

Nyagarama's death was confirmed by his family who said that he succumbed to covid-19.

Governor Nyagarama died aged 74.

His death comes hours after the governor's family issued an update on his health on Thursday, following reports that he was on life support.

This is to inform the general public that the governor is well and recuperating in the hospital and any reports doing the round in social media should be treated as rumours," said the Governor's son Gideon Momanyi.
