Devolution Cabinet Secretary (CS) Eugene Wamalwa has refuted rumours doing rounds on social media that the son to the late Vice President Michael Wamalwa, William Makali Wamalwa died from depression, drug abuse and alcoholism.
The CS instead asked Kenyans to wait until an autopsy is carried out on the body to ascertain the cause of death.
According to Wamalwa, William looked fine during the day (Sunday) but was found unconscious in his room and was rushed to a hospital in Kitale where he was pronounced dead.
“A post-mortem will be done and we will be releasing an official family statement to state the main cause of death of our dear son,” said Eugene.
Makali, who was in his mid-20s, was a Bachelor of Commerce student at the University of Nairobi. He was in his second year at the higher learning institute
Robert Wamalwa, Makali’s uncle told KNA that Makali was diabetic at the time of his death and that might have caused his death.
He, however, agreed with Eugene that a post postmortem will reveal the real cause of his death.
