The postmortem to determine the cause of death of former interior CS Joseph Nkaissery will be conducted today at the Lee Funeral Home. The exercise was scheduled for Sunday but was cancelled because one of Nkaissery’s sons had not arrived from the US.
The son arrived last night and pathologists from the government and the family say they are ready for the exercise. Police have so far questioned more than ten people including his bodyguards as part of the probe into the death.
On the fateful day, Nkaissery arrived at Bomas around 7 pm and proceeded to his “reserved ” room. He left at around 8.45pm, after meeting with a friend identified as a retired KDF Colonel Francis Mugambi and National Land Commission chairman Mohammed Swazuri.
Mugambi had been with the CS for close to two hours and enjoyed glasses of wine. Mugambi left the CS at Bomas. The CS had indicated that he wanted to be home early in time for the 9 o’clock news, a source close to the probe revealed.
Police said the CS had dinner with his family and retired to bed at around 10pm.At around 12am, Saturday, he complained of chest pains and shortly afterwards collapsed. The probe into the incident continues.
