His death was announced on Sunday by Isinya deputy county commissioner, Stanley Too, in a statement to local journalists.

Too said Mutunkei, who was driving in his private car along the route, had a head-on collision with an on-coming car.

“The senior chief was rushed to Kajiado County referral hospital but was pronounced dead by doctors on arrival at the facility at night,” said Too.

The DCC said two other passengers who were traveling in the vehicles involved in the accident survived with minor injuries on their limbs and heads.

Chief Mutunkei, who is remembered for quelling the 2015 animosities fuelled by differences between traders at Kitengela market where some people lost their lives, was a respected administrator.

The traders, who were fighting over the allocation of stalls, caused a major security impasse in the populous Kitengela town as various communities with trading interests at the market formed tribal groupings for own safety in battles that consecutively ran for 3 days.

Kitengela Ward MCA Paul Matuyia described the late chief Mutunkei as dedicated family man “who could sleep when his neighbours were hungry”.

“I have known him for quite a while before he was appointed chief when he used to buy milk from Kitengela women. He is a man of warm heart and believed in dispensing justice to all and sundry,” said Matuyia.

Korrompoi Assistant Chief, Agnes Sayia, described Mutunkei as a father, mentor and her role model, who never tired in guiding his juniors.

Kitengela Assistant Chief, Alex Kangethe, said he received the sad news on Saturday night, adding that the entire Isinya Sub County has lost an “important leader”.

“He guided us like his children, and wherever he was, he stood for truth. This was shocking news I have received this year, but we place his family before God and may his soul rest in peace,” said Kangethe.
