Gov't forced to respond after reports Nyeri Governor is critically ill

What's happening in Nyeri?

The County’s spokesperson Carol Nderi issued a statement on the matter after a local blogger claimed that Governor Kahiga was admitted at a US hospital.

However, Nderi refuted the reports as malicious rumours explained that Kahiga was in good health condition and was actually on a tour of duty in the United States.

“Our attention has been drawn to a false post that is circulating on social media, emanating from a Facebook account that has previously spun outright lies and is seemingly at it again”.

“We would like to assure the people of Nyeri County that H.E Governor Mutahi Kahiga is well and in the USA together with a section of senior officials, to meet investors. The delegation from Nyeri, led by Governor Kahiga, is in the USA for an inter-city exchange program between Nyeri and Reston City in the USA,” Nderi’s statement read in part.

The Nyeri County spokesperson threatened to take legal action against any person spreading falsehoods about the Governor.

William had also claimed that Kahiga has collapsed four times in his office since taking over.

The 58-year old county boss took office in November after the death of Governor Wahome Gakuru.
