The MCA joins a list of several legislators who have succumbed to Covid-19 in the country. In 2021, six leaders have died from complications caused by the deadly virus.
Ngugi's demise comes at a time when Kenya and the world as a whole have warned of a third wave of the virus.
In recent days, positive cases in the country have been on the rise.
This has resulted in the extension of mitigation measures such as the daily curfew, social distancing, and banning of political gatherings in the country.
