Businessman, farmer and former politician Mzee Jackson Kiprotich Kibor is dead.
The family confirmed the news saying Mzee Kibor succumbed to a long illness on Wednesday night at St. Luke's Hospital in Eldoret. He had been admitted to ICU for a long period before he passed away.
He was 89-years-old and is survived by four wives - one died - and 26 children, including 16 boys.
The family revealed that his two kidneys had failed.
Earlier, Kibor had contracted COVID-19 which left him fully dependent on using an oxygen cylinder.
"Kibor had been using medical oxygen since October 2020 after he contracted Covid. He had an oxygen cylinder at his home and another in his Prado vehicle for use whenever he wanted to visit Eldoret town for treatment or business."
Kidney failure can be caused by many factors. According to Healthline here are factors that can interfere with your kidney health and function:
- certain acute and chronic diseases
- toxic exposure to environmental pollutants or certain medications
- severe dehydration
- insufficient blood flow to the kidneys
- kidney trauma
If your kidneys aren’t able to function properly, your body becomes overloaded with toxins. This can lead to kidney failure, which can be life-threatening if left untreated.
May Mzee Kibor rest in peace.
