Autopsy starts on Nkaissery's body
Late CS for Interior Joseph Nkaissery

Government pathologists have started conducting an autopsy on the body of the late Interior CS Maj. Gen (Rtd) Joseph Nkaissery at the Lee Funeral Home to establish the cause of his death.

The exercise had been scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 10, but was halted temporarily because one of the late CS’s sons had not jetted in the country from the USA.

The late CS Nkaissery collapsed and died at his residence in Karen, Nairobi County on Saturday at 1.30 am.


On Sunday, 10 people including a security consultant at the Office of The President, who interacted with the late Nkaissery at the Bomas of Kenya lounge and his Karen home were quizzed by detectives.

Detectives had collected samples from the Bomas of Kenya Lounge, where the late CS is said to have taken a glass of wine and food on Friday Evening, Nkaissery’s car which he drove on, Karen Hospital and personal effects from his home in Karen.

The detectives have already questioned Nkaissery’s aide who rushed him to hospital, a driver, Bomas of Kenya Lounge waiters, a house help and Francis Mugambi the security consultant based at the Office of The President.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Mugambi, a friend of Nkaissery’s said he was with the late CS at the Bomas of Kenya Lounge where they met and talked about a  couple of  things before they parted ways at around  8:45pm.

“I was with the late CS on Friday evening at the Bomas of Kenya lounge, a place we left at around 8:45 pm. I later received a call from the CS’s security detail at about 12.30am on Saturday informing me that Nkaissery had fallen ill. I rushed to Karen Hospital where he was taken and found Nkaissery’s wife, Hellen, son, and his security detail, at around 1:00am. The doctor who attended to the CS told us there was nothing they could do as the CS had already passed on,” Mugambi said.
