Few months after Kibaki was sworn in, one tragic thing happen, a plane crash that involved half of his ministers.

The accident that consumed life of one of his ministers and destabilized his government at a very early stage.

At this time, Kibaki had still not recovered fully after the Machakos road accident while finalizing his presidential campaigns in december 2002.

The accident happened during Moody Awori home coming and half the cabinet had accompanied the then vice president to Busia. Raphael Tuju and Martha Karua had also attended the home coming.

In the plane, there was one Wanjiku Kihoro, wife to former Nyeri town member of parliament, Wanyiri Kihoro.

After the plane crash, Wanjiku Kihoro sustained serious injuries and went into a comma for four good years.

For two years, she was being treated at Nairobi Hospital while in a comma and after two years she was transferred to Kenyatta National Hospital.

The family of Kihoro and Kibaki used to be good buddies both in politics and out of politics to a point of Kihoro partially funding the former president campaigns.

The lift between the two buddies happened after Wanjiku Kihoro was admitted in Hospital and the former President did not even spare a day to visit his friend’s wife in hospital for four good years.

When President Mwai Kibaki contacted Kihoro Wanyiri to inform him of his plans to attend the burial but Kihoro warned him of stepping foot at his homestead.

On a media interview Kihoro was quoted saying, “When my wife died Kibaki wanted to attend the funeral. I told him to keep off.” He went further warning Kibaki not to attend the burial, “If he could not visit her when she was dying slowly in the hospital what was the point of visiting her when she was dead?”

On the burial day, Mwai Kibaki travelled all the way to Nyeri and made numerous calls begging Kihoro to allow him attend the burial but Kihoro stood his ground.

Insider Sources have revealed to Unreported Ke that relationship between the two has never been mended.
