According to reports reaching KSB, Otieno Kajwang, Homa Bay Senator, is dead. A source told KSB that Kajwang died of “cardiac arrest” at Mater Hospital in Nairobi. Reports say that Kajwang fell ill at his South B home after which he was rushed to Mater Hospital but unfortunately, doctors could not save his life. He passed away in the company of family members who had rushed him to hospital. At the time of going to blog, there was no confirmation from any major Media in Kenya about the sad news although KSB can confirm that Kajwang is dead. Otieno will be remembered for his “Bado mapambano” songs at political rallies.
KSB sends deep condolences to Kajwang’s family during this time of great shock and sorrow. We hope that the family will find the courage to go through this difficult time of great grief that has struck the family without notice. Kajwang will be missed by all those who new him together with members of his ODM Party especially Raila Odinga. Until his death, Kajwang was one of the most loyal supporters of Raila Odinga within ODM and probably one of the most vocal when it came to defending Raila against critics.
Prior to his death, there was no public indication that the late Senator was unwell. News about his death will therefore come as a great surprise to millions of Kenyans who knew him as a charismatic politician and staunch supporter of Raila Odinga. His death will be a big blow to Baba because he has always been part of ODM strategy. The gap he has left will never be filled. May God rest his soul in eternal peace.
