William Wamalwa Senior, son to the Late former Vice President Kijana Wamalwa, was on Sunday night reported dead at their home in Milimani, Trans Nzoia County.

Wamalwa Senior allegedly passed away in a neighbourhood hospital where he had been rushed to after he became unconscious.

The cause of his death is yet to be established, however, the family speculated it may have been related to diabetes.

"My nephew was diabetic. That could have probably led to his death but, of course, [when] the official autopsy report is out we will be able to know what happened," Robert Wamalwa told reporters.

He is also said to have possibly been suffering from depression and malnutrition.

A cousin to the former VP's son, Lynn David, confirmed the death to Pulselive.co.ke in addition to posting on hers oscial media: "RIP William Wamalwa you were the best cousin anyone could ask for."

Battle for Kijana Wamalwa's estate

Wamalwa Senior's siblings - William Wamalwa Junior and Alice Muthoni Wamalwa - have been embroiled in a court battle against their half siblings Michelle and Derek.

Michelle and Derek claim that they have been excluded from sharing in their late father's estate especially after their mother, Yvonne Wamalwa, passed away.

"It was meant to cast our family in a bad light. It is regrettable and sad that this matter has turned out this way," Alice and her two brothers suggested after Michelle and Duke spoke to the media about the family feud.
