The family of former powerful chief secretary/ head civil service and Finance Minister His Excellency Simeon Nyachae has confirmed he is FINE, well and in good health.
A deranged person took to twitter and Facebook with breaking news declaring that the former powerful minister had taken a bow, the bad news spread fast on social media BUT the family swiftly refuted the news.
H.E Nyachae’s oldest son and family spokesman Commission Charles Ayieko Nyachae confirmed Mzee is in good shape and health and castigated cheap haters for the false alarm;
Some person or persons created a fake Twitter account @charles_nyachae and earlier this evening twitted that my father had died. This is not true. I spoke to my father about an hour ago and he is very well, for which we thank God. I cannot even begin to imagine what level of hatred would warrant such a move. posted Charles on his Facebook TimeLine.
