Conrad Njeru Karukenya, christened Tiger Power, Kenya’s strongest man who is known for being ran over by a Land Rover unscathed and carrying eight huge men without breaking a sweat is dead.
The 73-year-old who had made a name for himself by performing extraordinary stunts like breaking six-inch nails using his teeth had been in hospital for a long time.
Tiger Power had discovered his extraordinary strength by accident when he was transporting his father’s coffee beans to the factory.
“As I was guiding the ox-cart carrying 2.1 tonnes of coffee downhill, the brakes failed. I guided it to the roadside and as I was lying on my back fixing the left wheel, the oxen unexpectedly pulled away running over my abdomen. Despite the heavy luggage, it did not hurt,” he recalled during a previous interview.
From that moment, Tiger Power has shown his extraordinary strengths in front of villagers, students, scientists to presidents in various parts of the world.
