BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,10TH JULY 2017-After over 6 hours of the postmortem examination on the body of the late interior Cabinet secretary Joseph Nkaiserry, a team of doctors and other pathologists now says the CS died of heart attack.Doctors carrying out the process were led by senior government pathologist Johansen Oduor while Nkaiserry’s Widow Helen represented the family.
Addressing the press at the lee Mortuary in Nairobi Monday 10th July, a group of five doctors including pathologists have said the examination on the body has pointed out failure of a major artery which is responsible for taking blood to the heart as possible reason for the CS ‘s sudden death.
