Former Transport and Lincensing Board chairman Hassan Ole Kamwaro has been pronounced dead.

Mr. Ole Kamwaro was undergoing special cancer treatment in the United States when he succumbed early this morning. According to his family, Hassan Ole Kamwaro was diagnosed of Lympoma or otherwise known as cancer of the throat.

Ole Kamwaro was appointed to the Transport and Lincensing Board by the then president Mwai Kibaki, to serve a term that started in 2010 and ended in April 2013. He also ran for a Narok North Parliamentary seat which he lost.

He will be remembered for his coperation with Transport minister John Michuki for their efforts in streamlining the transport sector, reducing the industry’s cartels and introducing SACCO regulations that required matatu owners to join so as to operate the public service vehicles.

In 2013, Kamwaro’s family hit the news after his daughter, Jenifer Kamwaro, was found dead, locked in her Cologne apartment in Germany. Her body was found decomposing.
