A rally driver, Asad Khan, who was allegedly assaulted by his girlfriend rally driver Maxine Wahome, has died.
Reports indicate that Khan died on Sunday at Avenue Hospital in Nairobi where he was receiving treatment following the incident.
Asad’s girlfriend, Wahome, was released on a Ksh.100,000 cash bail pending investigations into the alleged assault incident.
Asad had initially been admitted to the Nairobi Hospital’s High Dependency Unit (HDU) with serious deep cuts on the right ankle.
The deceased’s family members had earlier Wednesday made a plea to members of the public for blood donation as he was in critical condition.
“We wish to request all friends and well-wishers to kindly keep him in your prayers. The hospital team at Avenue hospital ICU require 5 pints of blood group A+ or O+ for his ongoing treatment,” read the statement from the family.
Ms Wahome was arrested on December 12, 2022 at his apartment in Kilimani after Asad’s brother, Adila Khan, reported the matter to the police after being informed of the incident by the management of the residence.
