“One of the pioneer devolution journalists in Kenya, Ndichu sought to faithfully tell Nyandarua’s changing narratives. I will never forget the many times he directly reached out to me and other senior County Government officials for more information, believing that his task was incomplete until he had a clearer view of people, issues and events. Ndichu used his pen to not only shine a light on our human condition, but also help us talk with each other.”

The governor concluded,

“Through the Department of Public Administration and Information Communication Technology, I had closely been following up on his health condition and offering support. This will continue as we now all prepare to lay this son of Nyandarua to rest.”
