Kilifi MCA dies in a public bus
A Member of the Kilifi County assembly, Bakari Ali Munyi died Monday night while travelling from Mombasa to Nairobi in a public bus.
According to a passenger who sat next to Munyi, the Shimo la Tewa ward representative MCA gasped his last breath on his seat in the bus after they reached Machakos junction.
Munyi had a heart condition
With only 30 kilometers remaining to reach Nairobi, they alerted police who confirmed that Bakari was indeed dead.
Three painkiller tablets were retrieved from the deceased.
Coast region Deputy Police Boss Akello Odhiambo said that according to his family, Munyi had been living with heart complications for a while.
He was planning to run as an Independent candidate
“We are investigating the whole issue since Munyi was trounced in the recently concluded ODM primaries in Shimo la Tewa ward and was heading to Nairobi to fill forms as an independent candidate,” he said.
His body was later flown to his home in Mtwapa Kilifi County where he was later buried on Tuesday evening.
He was 57-years-old.
