Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has been thrust into mourning following the death of his son Arthur Kinyanjui Kimani who succumbed to COVID-19 complications.

Arthur had been admitted at the Aga Khan Hospital in Mombasa where he was pronounced dead on Monday.

The Bahati MP went on to share the grief that befell his family on his Facebook page.

“It’s hard to accept that you are gone. RIP my last born Son Arthur Kinyanjui Kimani,” the Bahati MP wrote.

Family sources say that Arthur, 32, had been on a life support machine since December 2020.

Arthur transitioned from a Safari Rally enthusiast to a contractor with a construction company based in the Coast.

At a tender age, Arthur steered his Subaru Impreza WRX and competed against big shots in the rallying world such as Ian Duncan at the Kenya National Autocross Championship.

This was in 2009 where he came third, warming hearts for being the youngest rally driver in the country.

Two years later, he made a show in the KCB Safari Rally.

Ngunjiri loses his son barley three months after losing his mother, Emily Wanjiku who died aged 103 years old.

Hundreds of followers condoled with his family.

“My condolences to you Mheshimiwa and your family at this trying moments. I pray that God gives you strength and comfort during this time. Shalom,” Ole Nateman wrote.

“Heartfelt condolences to your family and friends for this Great loss, May God grant you peace to overcome this grief,” Emmanuel Bwely condoled.

Dennis Itumbi, a key figure in Deputy President William Ruto’s Tanga Tanga camp told the MP “Pole sana. God grant you peace.”
