Tuesday, February 23, 2021 -Juja legislator Francis Munyua Waititu aka Wakapee died from Brain Cancer which he has been battling since 2018.

After being diagnosed of the deadly Cancer, the MP started seeking treatment both in and outside the country. He would travel to India on a regular basis what triggered his desire to start a Cancer Treatment Center in Kiambu County before the disease took a toll on him.

“Cancer has robbed Kenya a brilliant leader,” MP Kuria mourned.
Due to the disease, the late Wakapee reportedly lost memory since last year.
