Jiweke Tavern Restaurant owner John Keige has died.
According to reports, the city tycoon collapsed and died outside outside his home in Nyari Estate, Nairobi.
He was quickly rushed to Nairobi Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
According to his domestic employees, Keige had just completed taking lunch, and decided to take a walk but collapsed moments after getting out of his house.
“Boss had just finished having lunch when he decided to go jogging. A few steps outside the gate, he collapsed,” One of his workers told The Standard.
Confirming the businessman’s sudden death, Keige’s sister Elizabeth Keige said his brother died on Tuesday afternoon, July 7 and he will be laid to rest on Tuesday, July 14.
He will be burried at a private funeral at the family rural home at Muruka in Kandara, Murang’a county.
Rumours had it that the tycoon died from COVID-19 but his doctor dismissed the claims saying he died of a heart attack.
Jiweke Tavern is located off Ngong Road in Nairobi.
In April, the entertainment joint made headlines after it reportedly refused to host a group of atheists on Easter Weekend.
The club is hailed for its consistent good service provision from the bartender to the bouncers.
