Embakasi West MP George Theuri is in mourning following the death of his father.
Taking to social media, the father of two expressed disbelief at his father’s passing, saying that he is ‘so broken’ by the tragedy.
“My family mourns…I can't believe Dad you are gone. R.I.P Dad. I celebrate you my hero. I may try to look strong on the outside but I'm so broken,” wrote Theuri.
However, Theuri did not reveal the cause of death. Condolence messages poured in for the youthful legislator and his family:
Mutuku Fred Poleni kwa familia.
Diffu Chez Condolences to you and your family my dearest brother...Take heart.

Kijana Mmoja Champe Shine on your way dad.

Slippers to Statehouse
Theuri, whose recent photos carrying his son on his back went viral, is famed for going to State House in slippers.
In 2017, President Uhuru Kenyatta hosted Jubilee’s elected leaders from Nairobi County and while other leaders went for a smart, casual look, Theuri’s choice of clothing quite stood out.
He attended the meeting wearing blue jeans and flip flops, causing quite a stir online.
