John De’Mathew is dead after grisly accident



Benga musician John Ng’ang’a, alias John DeMathew, has perished in road crash at Blue Post this evening.

Confirming the incident, Gatanga MP Nduati Ngugi said DeMathew was coming from a harambee in support of fellow musician Peter Kigia, held at Metro Bar.

Mr Ngugi said DeMathew rammed into a lorry. He was alone in the car. He added that the musician was pronounced dead on arrival at Thika Nursing Home.

Until his demise, he was the chairperson of the newly-launched Tamco Sacco that aims to uplift the welfare of musicians.

“We want to come together and join a Sacco to pool resources together so that when we die, our families do not resort to harambees to give us a decent send-off,” he said early this year at Thika Greens during the launch.

We at Newsline.co.ke send our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and fans of the late musician.
