Debunking Nkaissery's death: Conflicting accounts

"He usually takes a glass of wine or two when he comes here, meets some people then goes home..."

An earlier Saturday statement from State House's Chief of Staff Joseph Kinyua, the late passed on at Karen Hospital in Nairobi a few hours after he voluntarily went for a normal medical checkup.

On their part, however, the late Nkaissery's family friends told the medical staff at the Karen hospital that the late collapsed in his house, before he was rushed to hospital Friday night.

On Sunday, Nation reported that a close ally to the late commented that the late was in "good mood but said he wanted to go to hospital as he was not feeling well". This was on Friday evening.

On another worrying disclosure, administrators at the Karen Hospital said that the CS arrived at the facility dead. The medics at the facility, in yet another tell, declined to say whether indeed the late drove himself into the facility. The Star reported on Sunday.

"The doctors received the body of the late CS at 1am. Since our profession doesn’t allow us to assume anything, we run all emergency tests in attempts to resuscitate him, but he was past that," the paper quotes the administrator.

“Doctors don’t just assume that somebody is dead, they have to try and resuscitate,” said Dr James Mageria, the hospital’s spokesman.

He added: “I have seen stories elsewhere that he died while being treated, but let me confirm to you that they are untrue,”

Meanwhile government sleuths have kicked off investigations in the footsteps of the late, condoning off his home and the Bomas of Kenya where the late allegedly took his dinner before heading home late in the night on Friday.
