Uhuru loses cousin in grisly road accident

22 December 2014, 19:24 Eugene Odanga

Nairobi - It came as sad news for the Kenyan party scene with the news that tycoon, car enthusiast and party animal Mike Gathecha had passed on.

Gathechs, president Uhuru Kenyatta's cousin, succumbed to injuries caused by a grisly road accident he was involved in on Thika super highway near Roysambu.

He apparently smashed into the back of a stationary truck, tearing the Toyota Crown vehicle he was driving open on impact. His sudden death has left thousands in grief and he will be missed by many.

The former United States International University student had acquired quite a reputation for himself, as a shrewd business man, a serious car enthusiast and a party lover. He was the Managing director of the Juja Capital Center, one of the finest establishments in Kenya with a Restaurant, Bar and Lounge, Modern Tyre Centre, Car wash, Kids play park and Executive Barber shop.

His auto enthusiasm shone through with expensive cars with custom “GATHECHA” number plates on them.

He was known and loved by many in the party scene with who referred to him as Money Mike or Big Money Mike. He shall be missed by many.

May he rest in peace.
