President Uhuru Sends This Leader to Represent him in Murang'a Burial

PMG Kamau Njuguna wa Ruth was a Murang'a based politician who succumbed last Sunday after a short illness. The veteran politician died while undergoing treatment at one of the hospitals in Nairobi.

PMG was known due to his aggressive nature, especially when it came to fighting for people rights. He was currently pushing for the compensation of Kandara people by Delmonte, after he established that the company had settled in a land belonging to the public. The case is however ongoing in court.

Today, April 17, was PMG's burial, an event that was attended by various leaders. He was mourned as a nationalist and a dedicated leader where politicians pledged to emulate him. Among those who attended the event are; Zack Kinuthia, PS Wairagu, Moses Kuria, Alice Wahome, Irungu Kang'ata and Jude Njomo.

President Uhuru Kenyatta was represented by the Sports CAS, Zack Kinuthia, who passed his message of condolences to the family. Kinuthia was also sent by former Gatanga MP, Peter Kenneth, and the Transport cabinet secretary, James Macharia. Zack asked the mourners to embrace unity as PMG wanted.

Unlike in other burial events, politicians were given a short time to speak, and were restricted to talk politics. They were only allowed to mourn PMG and comfort the family though some went ahead to throw some political jibes. PMG died at the age of 70 years. Video.
