DP Ruto aide Anthony Kariuki dies in road accident
Anthony Kariuki, who worked for DP William Ruto, was killed in an accident on Outering Road in Nairobi on Friday.
Reports indicate that Mr. Kariuki was crossing the road on his way home at around 10pm when he was hit by a tour van.
On Saturday, DP Ruto mourned his communications officer saying: “My heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the family, colleagues and friends of my staff member Anthony Kariuki. Kariuki was sharp, dependable, industrious, committed and creative with positive attitude.
“We will miss his hunger and stamina for knowledge, punctuality, team spirit and orientation to detail. Take comfort in knowing that Kariuki is now resting in the arms of our Lord. Rest In Peace.”
The body has since been moved to City Mortuary. The deceased leaves behind a widow and two children.
He previously worked at the Nation Media Group as an online editor.
Getting reports on the passing of one fellow I’m proud to have mentored – Anthony Macharia Kariuki – very sudden and shocking. A responsible, unassuming and committed man. RIP
