The late Interior CS Joseph Ole Nkaisserry suffered a heart attack, preliminary investigations have revealed.
A postmortem conducted on Monday to determine the cause of Nkaisserry’s death indicated that he suffered a condition known as myocardial infarction.
In medical terms, this kind of heart attack is the irreversible death of heart muscle secondary to prolonged lack of oxygen supply.
This is also known as spontaneous coronary artery dissection heart attack, which is accessioned by the bursting of heart arteries.
Government pathologist Johansen Odour assisted by two specialists seconded by the family and lawyer Maiyan Sankare oversaw the examination.
The autopsy was conducted at the Lee Funeral Home where the late CS is still lying in state.
Nkaissery arrived dead on Saturday at Karen Hospital.
Top detectives among them Nairobi DCI chief Ireri Kamwende, Kilimani DCI boss Philis Kanina and Karen DCI boss Joane Njoki together with detectives from homicide unit were also present at the mortuary.
The examination started at around 10.30am and was scheduled to end at 4pm.
Dozens of family members, state officials from interior ministry frequented the venue as the postmortem was underway.
Doctor Bessie Byaikika said the CS had suffered ruptured arteries of the heart which they attributed to high blood pressure.
The doctors ruled out the possibility of foul play in the CS’s death and said further tests are being conducted to establish the cause of the high blood pressure.
Chemicals used for foul play
On other developments, Keen observers including Anwar Sadat and others in Nairobi have established that, the doctors are right in their conclusion that they have not seen any evidence that suggests foul play in the death of Nkaissery. This is because the type of chemical speculated to have been used to kill Nkaissery vanishes from the system of the deceased within 12 hours. That is why the autopsy was delayed.
In developed societies, once a body is received and foul play is suspected, blood samples are immediately taken, something which wasn’t done in Nkaissery’s case.
Nkaissery was killed and the killers are still throwing insults at other office holders and they will continue to kill unless they are voted out of office.
