Chomba is alleged to have died on Saturday morning, October 10, at a hospital in Eldoret, after he developed breathing difficulties. He had an accident last week at his home where he slipped and fell in the bathroom and was recuperating at home.
In a press briefing held in Eldoret Town, Uasin Gishu County on Saturday, leaders from the county mourned Chomba as a hardworking man who was always ready to extend a helping hand to area residents.
Chomba was serving his second term as an MCA of Huruma Ward and had previously served for over three terms as a Councillor in the defunct Eldoret Municipal Council.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi stated that leaders, friends and his family would convene a meeting later in the day at his home for burial arrangements.
“I am still in disbelief that Chomba is no more and I would like to pass my sincere condolences to the family of the deceased,” Sudi stated.
