Kenyans woke up to the sad news of the demise of Former Juja MP and government chief whip George Thuo.

According to friends and relatives, Thuo died on Sunday night after he collapsed while having drinks with friends at a club in Thika town at about 10 pm. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The businessman was elected MP in 2007 and had served Juja Constituents for less than 3yrs before his election was nullified over irregularities.

In an interview with Jeff Koinange, Thuo revealed that he had given his personal number to everyone; having put it on the billboards, newsletters in Juja as well as on his website so that his constituents could reach him with ease.

A research on Thuo’s life and times revealed very little about him as he has kept minimum information about him in public. However, we managed to gather the following.
