Former leader of dreaded Mungiki gang Maina Njenga has reacted following the death youthful politician Steve Chege.
Both Njenga and Chege were aspiring for Laikipia senate seat in the last election which was won by the incumbent John Kinyua who vied on President William Ruto's UDA.
Chege, a former university student leader, died on Monday morning following a road accident along the Northern Bypass near Kiamumbi estate.
He succumbed to life-threatening injuries which he sustained after his car crashed on road rails while avoiding to hit a motorbike that was riding on the wrong side.
An appeal for blood had been made in an attempt to save his life at the Kenyatta University Teaching and Referral Hospital (K.U.T.R.H) where he was rushed after the accident.
Njenga mourned Chege as a promising young leader who was an inspiration to many, adding his death was a big loss to the society.
"My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of comrade Steve Chege who succumbed this morning receiving treatment as a result of a tragic road accident," he posted on Facebook.
"Steve was a promising young leader who devoted his life to the service of his country; an inspiration to many and a great young leader. Rest in peace comrade," Njenga added.
