Renown political and social commentator P. M. G Kamau, also known as WaRuth Philip Njuguna, is dead.
He passed on this afternoon while undergoing treatment for an undisclosed ailment in the ICU at a Nairobi hospital.
He was a common face on Inooro TV’s #iNooroRuciini show where he commented on the BBI, Mt Kenya and national succession politics with zeal.
Kandara Member of Parliament Alice Wahome while announcing the death said a dark cloud of death had befallen the region.
She said WaRuth was a worthy opponent who pursued whatever he believed in independently and with gusto.
In the 2017 general elections, WaRuth garnered 31, 784 as an Independent candidate and lost to Jubilee’s Alice Wahome, who was re-elected with 48, 925 votes.
“His dramatic ability to debate and articulate issues will be missed,” said the vocal MP in a Facebook post.
She added that the Kandara Residents Association patron was a work in progress and had the best interest for Kandara constituents.
He was key in the push for Del Monte Kenya to surrender part of the 50,000 acres farm to residents of Murang’a and Kiambu counties.
He once said elected leaders in central Kenya scare off local elites out to initiate development projects in fear of losing political popularity.
