Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati's brother is dead. Nicholas Wangamati passed on in Nairobi.  

"I regret to announce the passing on of my brother Mr Nicholas Wangamati in Nairobi. In the meantime, I have joined his family in Nairobi as we make necessary arrangements to transport and lay his body to rest in Bungoma," the first term County boss shared on facebook. 

"As a family, we request for prayers through these difficult moments. I will be sharing more details later," he added.

His brother's death comes at a time he is in the middle of campaigns, seeking for re-election.

He was elected the second Bungoma governor on the Ford Kenya ticket after beating his predecessor Ken Lusaka, who ran on the ruling Jubilee Party ticket at the time.

This time round, the governor is defending his seat on DAP-Kenya Party ticket.

His closest competitor is his political nemesis, Senate Speaker Lusaka who is running on Ford Kenya ticket.
