Ndeti husband dies following failing health
He died in ICU after his blood pressure dropped. He’d been sickly since March
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.
