Former Kakamega Governorship aspirant Mabel Muruli has died while undergoing treatment at the Karen hospital in Nairobi after spending several days at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

“It’s with a heavy heart to learn of the death of Mabel Muruli. I shall cherish the many day’s we spend in Kakamega County campaigning for Jubilee party. Even as you pushed, your agenda to be considered for the gubernatorial seat you lost grace fully. Fair thee well my friend,” posted Sammy Itemere, former Broadcasting and Telecommunications Principal Secretary on his facebook account.

The cause of his death is yet to be made public by his family members.
