Former Kibwezi MP Richard Kalembe Ndile died at Nairobi Hospital on Sunday morning at around 5:30am after a long illness.
According to the deceased’s younger brother, Sam Ndile, the former vocal legislator was taken ill on Wednesday night from his Mlolongo home complaining of stomach pains.
“When we found all beds were occupied at Pangani he personally instructed me to drive him to the Nairobi Hospital,” he added
He was diagnosed with multiple illnesses including; liver cirrhosis, cancer of the stomach, and kidney failure which necessitated medics to recommend that he be taken into theatre.
“He suffered multiple illnesses and at some point, he was wheeled to the theatre where he was supposed to undergo a correction surgery. The facility asked for blood donors and people turned up and donated blood for him. However, this didn’t succeed since his situation worsened,” Sam said
