Machakos Senator Boniface Mutinda Kabaka.

Machakos Senator Boniface Kabaka has died.

Kabaka died on Friday while receiving treatment at the Nairobi Hospital. 

The senator was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit on December 4 after he fell ill in a Kilimani apartment.

Kabaka, who checked into the apartment on December 3, was reported to have developed a sudden headache, prompting a friend he was with, Esther Muli, to alert the apartment’s management, who called an ambulance and rushed the senator to Nairobi Hospital while in critical condition.

Kabaka was reported to have vomited, prompting authorities to investigate a possible poisoning. Muli was consequently arrested in connection with the legislator’s sudden ailing.

A medical report on the analysis of Kabaka’s vomit samples, however, ruled out foul play after the Government Chemist on Wednesday communicated that there were no toxins in the senator’s vomitus.

Muli, who was being held in lawful custody at the Kilimani Police Station, was consequently released on cash bail, upon the orders of a Nairobi court.

The senator's family is set to address the media on his demise this afternoon.
