Authorities of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in Kirinyaga have been tossed into grieving following the puzzling demise of their associate, Mr Geoffrey Gitobu.

“A sibling of the departed made a report at the police headquarters on Monday evening. The report showed that Mr Gitobu was driving inside Nanyuki town when he felt discombobulated and was raced to a confidential medical clinic where he was articulated irredeemable,” said Mr Tarus.

The police supervisor said the report made by Mr Gitobu’s sibling was brief and didn’t show assuming he had any fundamental ailment before his demise.

Didn’t visit IEBC workplaces

Once at the facility, an emergency vehicle was called and he was hurried to Cottage Hospital where he kicked the bucket before he could be taken care of,” said the IEBC official who declined to be named since he isn’t approved to address the media.
