The acting fraternity has lost another creative following the shocking news yesterday of actress Nana Gichuru’s death.
Nana, who seamed to have had a premonition about her death, perished yesterday in a grisly road accident at the Eastern by pass.
“Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘HOLY CRAP!!!! WHAT A RIIIDEE. To lace, red lips and oversized headphones and this amazing ride! #LifeAccessories #SetLife #HOLYCRAPWHATARIDE,” she had posted.
According to witness accounts, she was trying to overtake some cars before she collided head on with an oncoming lorry.
