R.I.P.: Radio Maisha Traffic Manager Dies In Freak Accident

Posted on January 11, 2012


The Late John Mutunga, In Happier Times with his Wife. She survived with injuries.

Death, surely has no mercy. Death they say is such a cruel, cold, merciless killer…..coming when never expected.

Wednesday 11th January was seeming a normal day as John Mutunga (a friend, colleague and doting husband) headed to work.

His wife was alongside him.

As he walked by the roadside in Nairobi’s Imara Daima estate, a speeding matatu overtaking another, came from behind the pair and seemingly the driver lost control of the vehicle and it ploughed into the pair, killing John on the spot.

His injured wife was rushed to Nairobi’s Mater Hospital for observation, and the sad bit is, she is Seven Months pregnant. Sources tell Mombasa411 that doctors are working round the clock to save the pregnancy, the couples’ expected first born.

John Mutunga formerly worked at Mombasa’s Baraka FM as a traffic manager before taking his last job at Radio Maisha.

The news of the death has shocked Mutunga’s former colleagues at Radio Maisha and Baraka FM.

Esther Ingolo a presenter at Radio Maisha, termed the death as saddening. She was lost for words as she spoke to yours truly.

Ayub Mwangi, the editor at Baraka FM, termed Mutunga’s death as a great loss, terming him ‘a great proffessional’.

In Facebook, esp. Baraka FM Old family group, the shock was plain to see.

The body was taken to Chiromo Funeral Home. More details will be made available soon.

R.I.P. Mutunga.
