Former Juja MP and government chief whip George Thuo is dead.

He reportedly collapsed while having drinks with friends at a Kiambu club on Sunday and was later pronounced dead.

Mr Thuo served as Juja MP from 2007 up to 2010 when he lost his Parliamentary seat in a by-election after a court nullified the 2007 poll results over irregularities.

Mr Thuo was also known for his involvement as an investor in City Hoppa, an urban transport company.

Former Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka on Monday sent his condolences to the family, saying in a statement that he was in shock over Mr Thuo's death.

“My deepest condolences to the family, friends, relatives and Juja constituents following the passing on of former Juja Member of Parliament and a friend, George Thuo. To the family, take solace in the Lord during this difficult time of mourning. My family and I are with you in prayers,” he said.
