#RIPTecraMuigai: Keroche Breweries CEO’s daughter dies in accident

By Fay Ngina | May 3rd 2020

The Strategy and Innovation Director at Keroche Breweries Tecra Muigai on Saturday, May 2, died following an accident.

Terca is the daughter of Keroche Breweries Chairman Joseph Karanja and the CEO, Tabitha Karanja.

Through a statement to the media, Keroche Breweries announced the death and asked Kenyans for respect as they made preparations for the final sendoff.

“As we begin preparation for her final sendoff we ask for respect and privacy during these difficult times,” read part of the statement.

The Keroche Board and Directors described Tecra as brilliant adding that her passion and energy were the source of crucial innovations in enriching the company’s products.

“While we mourn the loss of a remarkable young lady, we also celebrate her life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true and be willing to explore and push their limits,” their statement adds.

Tecra is private person and this was revealed by her sister, Anerlisa Mungai who said that the deceased would at times introduce her as a friend because she did not like being in the limelight.

In an Instagram post about two months ago, Anerlisa posted a photo of her and Tecra saying that she doesn’t post her as often because she was a private person.

“My sister is so cold towards me. When we walk together then she sees a lot of people, she always leaves me like somebody she doesn’t know. 

“She also introduces me as her friend lol, the worst is when she denies me. She just hates the spotlight and that is why I don’t post her on my page even if it’s a family photo,” said Anerlisa.

Kenyans took to Twitter to pay their last respects as the send condolences messages to Tecra’s family.
