Wife to Machakos Senator Bonface Kabaka has given an update on his condition after rumours surfaced indicating that the lawmaker is dead.
In a message to reporters, one of Kabaka’s two wives confirmed that the lawmaker who was rushed to hospital on Friday morning after spending the night with a woman at an executive Kilimani appartment is still alive.
“We wish to inform the People of Kenya and Residents of Machakos County in particular that Senator Hon Boniface Mutinda Kabaka, Advocate is recuperating at Nairobi Hospital.
“Please avoid or ignore the distressing rumours and fake news and continue praying for the full recovery of our brother, father, friend, pillar and senator. Thank you for the support so far,” a statement from the family read.
He was rushed to the facility on 04 Dec after a night with a woman identified as Esther Nthenya Muli.
Police launched investigations into the incident and arraigned Miss Muli in court with authorities seeking to detain her for seven days to investigate attempted murder.
The 45 year old teacher was however set free after results failed to detect any poisoning as earlier suspected.
Kabaka reportedly collapsed at an exclusive apartment in Kilimani area in the wee hours of Friday morning. He was in the company of a woman, later identified as Esther Nthenya Muli.
The Senator is said to have driven himself to 3Dee apartments and was later joined by the lady.
They are reported to have ordered food and drinks before settling down for the night.
