Narok County Roads and Public Works CEC John Marindany has succumbed to Covid-19.

Marindany died on Wednesday at a Nairobi hospital while receiving treatment. He had been taken ill on Monday at his home in Chelchel village.

“Yesterday, at around 1500hrs, he developed breathing problems while undergoing treatment at the hospital and was pronounced dead shortly,” a report by Angata Barrikoi Chief Joseph Kirui read.

The chief, however, revealed that the medical report showed he had been suffering from Hypertension and Diabetes.

Area Governor Samuel Tunai has since sent his condolences terming his (Marindany’s) death as a blow to his administration.

“I have learned with shock and difficulty of the untimely death of John Marindany, who until his death, served as a devoted County Executive Committee Member for the Department of Roads and Public Works,” Tunai said.

He added: “My administration has suffered a big blow by the death of a dedicated member of the County Executive whose services were a major knob in service delivery.”

Tunai remembered Marindany as a diligent, attentive officer who sacrificed a lot to ensure effective service delivery in his docket.

Since 2013, Marindany held key positions such as CEC for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Department, CEC for Health Department and CEC for Roads and Public Works Department, a position he held until his death.
