According to Nakuru East sub-county police commander Elena Kabukuru, six people died on the spot when a North Rift matatu collided with a lorry in the Greenstead area.
Malala was lost for words, mourning his friend who he described as a dedicated whose generosity and leadership were unmatched.
“Take comfort in knowing that Kachu is now resting in the arms of our Lord. Rest In Peace my friend. He was not only a great resource to my team but also a dedicated team player who saw to it that we gave our best on matters legislation, oversight, resource allocation and representation of our people. Kachu was a friend, loyal to the core and a role model to many,” He said.
