A niece to Narc-Kenya leader and candidate for Kirinyaga governor Martha Karua passed away on Monday from injuries following a car accident along Mombasa Rd on Sunday.
Mercia Wawira Mwangi, a fourth-year student at Daystar University, died while undergoing treatment at Nairobi West Hospital. Mercia was reportedly in a car with three other students when the driver of their car rammed into a tractor trailer from behind along Mombasa Rd near the JKIA exit.
