Machakos Senator Boniface Mutinda Kabaka is dead.
Kabaka died while receiving treatment at a Nairobi hospital a week after he ended up in ICU.
Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua said Kabaka’s demise was due to the effects of a stroke arising from a blood clot that has been bothering him for a while.
“On behalf of myself and the people of Machakos, I pass my condolence to the family of our beloved Machakos Senator Boniface Kabaka who has gone to be with the Lord,” Mutua said.
The Machakos senator
According to a police report, the Machakos Senator collapsed at a woman friend’s house in Kilimani, Nairobi and was rushed to hospital where he was admitted since last.
According to the incident report at Kilimani police station, the senator had checked into the apartment accompanied by the woman last Thursday afternoon.
The senator suddenly complained of severe headache while in the apartment and asked the woman to look for paracetamols.
However, the pain worsened and she informed the management who called an ambulance and rushed the legislator to Nairobi Hospital where he was admitted in the ICU.
Kabaka’s family later shrugged off the report, terming it “fake and malicious rumours”
The family spokesperson said, “We urge you to ignore the fake and malicious rumours being spread by some petty, callous and heartless political enemies to malign the good name of the Senator while he is helpless and fighting for dear life.”
The family says while having a drink in a restaurant in Kilimani area, Mutinda requested the management to call for an ambulance to rush him to Nairobi Hospital after feeling unwell.
