One of the late Vice-President Michael Kijana Wamalwa’s sons has died at the family’s home in Kitale.
William Makaki Wamalwa Senior passed away on Sunday, 8th December 8, at their Milimani home in Kitale Town, Trans Nzoia County.
An uncle, Robert Wamalwa, said that his nephew was diabetic and that could possibly be the cause of his death.
“My nephew was diabetic and that might have led to his death, but we will wait for the autopsy to know what exactly happened,” Robert told the media.
The uncle was responding to reports on social media that indicated that the cause of death was a consequence of alcoholism, drug abuse and depression.
“It is really unfair for some people to capitalise on something like this. They should have a sense of decorum towards that family and the dead,” Robert added.
Makali, whose other paternal uncle is Devolution Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa, was a second-year student at the University of Nairobi at the time of his death.
