However, it is unclear what caused Jonathan’s death.

According to Citizen Digital, Jonathan, a former rally driver, succumbed to pancreatic cancer.

Before his retirement, Jonathan participated in several rally tournaments.

In 2002, Jonathan tried his luck in the political sphere, having vied for the Eldama Ravine seat.

He would later withdraw his candidature and chose to support Musa Sirma.

His brother and Baringo Senator, Gideon Moi in a statement said: “Jonathan will be remembered for his daring exploits in the racing tracks, in muddy and dusty tracks, during this time of Easter. He was amiable, social and down to earth and industrious human being.”

The family will keep the public posted but will release a detailed statement tomorrow.
