Abdi Guyo, the Nairobi County Majority Leader is mourning four family members who died in a grisly road accident.
Those who perished in the accident include Guyo’s brother, wife and children. Two other children survived.
Reports indicate the family was travelling to Isiolo from Nairobi when the vehicle they were in was involved in an accident.
“They were travelling to Isiolo and were just a few kilometres from Isiolo before the unfortunate incident happened,” said Kariobangi South MCA Robert Mbatia, a close friend of Guyo told Nation.
Guyo who is contesting for the Isiolo governorship recently got a boost after Isiolo Governor Mohamed Kuti dropped his re-election and endorsed Guyo as his preferred successor.
Kuti is reportedly battling ill health.
Kuti endorsed Guyo after a meeting with elders during which he hailed the Matopeni MCA as best placed to succeed him.
Guyo will face former governor Godana Doyo, former EACC boss Halakhe Waqo and politician Hussein Tene who are also eyeing the Isiolo gubernatorial seat.
