Petronila: Nominated MCA from Meru County dies

Petronila Gainchi, who is a nominated Member of County Assembly (MCA) has died. She was undergoing treatment at MP Shah Hospital in Nairobi.

Petronila died on Thursday night 13, January 2020.

She was a vocal member of several committees in the county such as Water, Health, Implementation and House Business select committees.

Also, Meru Speaker Joseph Kaberia said, “She was a member of House Business Committee whereby I am the chair. In the house, she was very active.”

Petronila comes from Mikinduri. She was admitted in HDU ward in MP Shah Hospital after she was diagnosed with severe sepsis. Unfortunately, she succumbed while undergoing treatment.

It is said that she has been ailing for some time.

In March last year, she underwent colon treatment at Kiirua Mission Hospital. January 2020, she underwent treatment for blood infection.

Kaberia has condoned Petronila’s family and the entire Meru County Assembly.

She will be remembered for her impressive contribution to the house. In March last year, Petronila tabled a report to the Committee on Labor, Public Service and Social Welfare concerning status of payment for Reuben Mburugu. Reuben was injured at his workplace while on duty during an attack.

Reuben was an employee of Meru County Government.
