An obituary of businessman James Richard Wanjagi in the Nation Daily Newspaper has caused a stir online after the publication used business mogul Jimmy Wanjigi’s picture.
The obituary published in today’s Daily Nation Page 49 claimed that Wanjigi died on the 30th of January this year in Karen estate in what is termed as a failed armed robbery.
The coincidences in the obituary is what has alarmed many Kenyans as the wife of Wanjagi also bears the very same name as that of Wanjigi, both are Irenes.
It also names a Maina Wanjagi and a Wambui Wanjagi as son and daughter respectively.
Mogul Wanjigi’s children are both Maina and Wambui.
“A special thanks to the Kwacha Industries which Richard called home for 25 years and whose employees we are happy to call our family. We especially thank the many friends in politics who have stood with us at this trying moment,” the obituary read in part.
Nation Media Group has since apologised to the family of businessman Jimmy Wanjigi.
