William Makali Wamalwa, son of the late former vice-president Kijana Wamalwa is dead.
Makali reportedly collapsed at their Milimani Home on Sunday, November 8 and was rushed to Crystal Hospital in Kitale where he was pronounced dead.
According to the deceased’s uncle, Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, Makali collapsed at around 5.30pm and was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
“It is a shock to the family. He was in a good health and we talked on Saturday and it is unfortunate that we have lost him,” the CS told The Standard.
“For now we cannot speculate the cause of his demise. We expect an autopsy to be conducted today to establish the cause of his death.”
The family has rubbished speculation online that William died of depression and drug abuse.
“It is all rubbish; it is unfair to the family for people to put outbursts on social media. They should have a sense of decorum and respect to our family and dead,’’ said Robert Wamalwa, who is chairing the burial preparations.
The 33-year-old Makali, was a second year student at the University of Nairobi where he was pursing Bachelor of Commerce degree.
