To date, investigations into the cause of the sudden death of senators Mutula Kilonzo (Makueni) in 2013, Otieno Kajwang (Homa Bay) that shocked the nation and beyond are yet to be made public.
Begging questions remain unanswered and Kenyans are still curious to know more about the circumstances that led to their death. Mutula died in April 2013, less than a month after he was sworn in as the first senator of Makueni.
He is reported to have slept and failed to wake up at his home bordering Maanzoni Lodge on Mombasa Road.
In March this year, a former personal assistant, Stella Mwendwa, told an inquiry the late Mutula had lost a lot of weight before his death.
“Kilonzo looked beaten health wise,” she said, adding she thought this was the result of vigorous campaigning in the run-up to that year’s March 4 election.
Mutula had served in former President Mwai Kibaki’s Cabinet as the minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs, and then Education minister. He had served as a minister for Nairobi Metropolitan Development.
Kajwang’ died at 11.34pm in November 2014 at Mater Hospital, Nairobi. He had been rushed after he complained of chest pains. If he were alive today, Kenyans would be enjoying his campaign antics.
Kabete MP George Muchai was shot dead in February 2015 on Kenyatta Avenue, Nairobi. The motive of the killing to date is not known.
He was killed alongside his driver and two bodyguards.
The cause of Gatundu South MP Joseph Nyamu’s death is still not clear. He is said to have collapsed and died in his bathroom in May 2014.
