The CS died at Karen Hospital on Saturday morning after being admitted for check up, according to State House.

“He passed on after being admitted for a check-up,” he added, “The country to be updated as more information becomes available.”

There were no immediate details on the cause of the death.

Nkaissery’s death, coming exactly a month to the General Election set for August 8, is a big blow to the nation due to the critical role he was playing in strategizing with top security chiefs to ensure a peaceful election.

 

Several Cabinet Secretaries and other top government officials were among those who rushed to the Karen Hospital soon after the announcement—including Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet and CID boss Ndegwa Muhoro.

 “It is unfortunate that we have lost the CS,” Muhoro told Capital FM News on telephone, “our prayers are with his family.”

State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu said, “It is very sad indeed, the CS is dead.”

Nkaissery was a Member of Parliament until 2014 when he resigned to take up President Uhuru Kenyatta’s appointment as Interior Cabinet Secretary to replace Joseph Ole Lenku who was unceremoniously dismissed in the wake of increased insecurity in the country.

He had served as a Member of Parliament for Kajiado since 2002, and was Assistant Minister for Defence in former President Mwai Kibaki’s government.

He was elected to Parliament on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), before he fell out with the party leader Raila Odinga, when he joined the government.
