James Mutiso had been elected as Yatta MP during the 2002 general elections but died on April 30, 2003, barely four months after.
The MP and two others died after the vehicle they were travelling in, a taxi hired by the MP, was swept away by raging floods after it stalled in the middle of the Ting’ang’a bridge on Mbakoni River.
Among those who died when the car plunged into the river was a woman healer who has also described as a specialist in traditional Kamba dishes a role she was to play in the planned victory party for the MP that was scheduled the next day.
Her presence in the vehicle brought very high speculation especially after suspected witchcraft paraphernalia found near where he and two other people drowned.
