Former cabinet Minister Njenga Karume is dead.
The billionaire businessman and close political associate to President Kibaki passed on in the early hours of this morning (at 2:40am) at Karen hospital Nairobi aged 83 from complications associated with prostrate cancer which he has been battling for some time now.
