RIP! Former Nairobi mayor’s son commits suicide

candle, rip, sad

Police are investigating an incident in which a son of former Nairobi Mayor Dick Wathika committed suicide in their house in Windsor area.

The man identified as Kanyiri Wathika was found dead in his room in an apparent suicide. The body was moved to the mortuary.

Wathika died in 2015 after a short illness. He was a former Makadara MP.

Wathika’s 2007 election to Nairobi’s Makadara Constituency was annulled on 30 April 2010.

The judgment was delivered by Lady Justice Kalpana Rawal, who said the electoral process was marred by irregularities. Lady Justice Rawal told a packed court that Mr Wathika was not validly elected, but said that she would issue a ruling in the afternoon on whether to stay the judgment before giving the parliamentary Speaker a certificate nullifying the MP’s election.
