Elected leaders from Nyamira yesterday put aside their political differences and united in mourning the County Assembly Majority Leader Elijah Osiemo who died in a car crash.

Relatives, church leaders, friends and his supporters flocked his home in Nyamaiya, West Mugirango Constituency after receiving the shocking news of the death of their MCA near Maai Mahiu as he travelled to Nakuru.

Osiemo, who is the Nyamaiya ward rep, lost his life on Monday afternoon but it was not until yesterday that the incident was reported to the police.

He was travelling in the same vehicle with the deputy majority leader, Duke Oyagi Masira who represents Nyamira township ward, and nominated Member of the County Assembly, Priscilla Nyatichi.

Naivasha OCPD Benjamin Boen said the accident occurred when the vehicle the MCAs were travelling in hit a boda boda carrying charcoal.

“After hitting the boda boda from behind the car rolled several times into a ditch. The MCA was pronounced dead on arrival at Naivasha hospital,” he said.

Masira and Nyatichi were yesterday transferred to Aga khan with serious injuries but are in a stable condition.
