Machakos gover­nor hope­ful Wavinya Ndeti’s hus­band is dead. Do­lamu Henry Odu­wole died yes­ter­day morn­ing at the Nairobi Hospi­tal, where he had been ad­mit­ted af­ter his blood pres­sure went down dras­ti­cally.

Wavinya’s el­der brother Raphael Musyoki said he died in the In­ten­sive Care Unit at 1.30am. “I was called by my sis­ter at around 1am and she told me her hus­band’s con­di­tion had de­te­ri­o­rated. He passed on as I ar­rived at the hospi­tal,” he told the Star on the phone.

Musyoki said Odu­wole has been sickly since March. “He has been in and out of hospi­tal. He has been to The Mater Hospi­tal, Nairobi Hospi­tal and even Lon­don, but this morn­ing God de­cided he should rest,” he said.

Musyoki said Odu­wole’s death is a big blow to the Ndeti fam­ily, as he held a big place in their lives and in their hearts. “He was not just an in-law but a son of the fam­ily. He was very sup­port­ive of the fam­ily,” he said.

Musyoki de­scribed Odu­wole as a hum­ble man who had re­spect for all, whether young or old. He said the fam­ily will com­mu­ni­cate the burial date later in the week af­ter they con­sult with their rel­a­tives in Nige­ria.
