Former Kitui Central MP Ngala Mwendwa’s son is dead. Ndili Mwendwa died just two days after the burial of his father, who was buried over the weekend after he succumbed to long-time illness, at a Nairobi Hospital.
According to the late Mwendwa’s eldest son Chris Mwasia Mwendwa, Ndili fainted yesterday evening at around 7pm, at a family meeting, and died shortly after he was rushed to Nema Hospital in Kitui for medication.
He said medics confirmed the deceased suffered cardiac arrest and other heart complications, leading to his death. Families and friends have been left in sorrow, given that they just buried his father.
He was the fourth-born to the late legislator.
Various leaders attended Ngala’s Saturday burial ceremony including immediate retired Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga and Opposition Chiefs led by Kalonzo Musyoka.
