A South Sudanese envoy walked into KCB Moi Avenue branch in Nairobi on Thursday afternoon.
Moments later he was dead.
A police report stated that Michael Nyang Joook, aged 66, collapsed after complaining of difficulty breathing.
In a statement, KCB said, “A customer at our KCB Advantage Branch, Moi Avenue, Nairobi, collapsed and died this afternoon during a visit to the branch.
“The incident was reported to the police and they took over the matter. We condole and stand with the family during this difficult time.”
KCB said as a result of this, the Advantage Centre will be temporarily closed.
“We encourage our customers to visit our other Advantage Centres or use alternative banking touchpoints such as cash recyclers, ATMs, cash deposit machines, Mobi, KCB M-Pesa, Vooma and internet banking.”
The envoy’s diplomatic ride was parked outside the bank and his body was ferried in a hearse to Lee Funeral home.
A man wearing a hazmat suit was seen fumigating the bank’s entrance.
People believed to be his relatives were also spotted entering the bank before the body was loaded into the hearse.
Here are photos from the incident taken by the affable and hawkeyed photographer Mercy Mumo.
