Mastermind Tobacco Limited boss Wilfred Murungi who passed on, on Thursday was one of the most recognizable people around Meru and Tharaka Nithi.

Mr. Murungi left a glaring footprint in both counties where he had invested heavily.

The tycoon is credited with contributing immensely to the development of the Chogoria area in Tharaka Nithi and other regions.

Tobacco farmers earned decent incomes from Mastermind Tobacco, but also from his magnanimity.

A memo from Mastermind Tobacco Limited directors and signed by Company Secretary R.M Mutuma and dated June 6, announced the passing on of Murungi.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing on of our Chairman, Mr. M.W. Murungi on June 6, 2019. The Board requests that all staff respect the family’s privacy in this difficult time. Further announcements will be made in due course,” read the memo, which was copied, to all department managers.

On Friday Tharaka Nithi Njuri Ncheke Council of elders chairman, Jonathan Kangóri sent his condolence to the family, saying Murungi had left an enviable legacy.
