Food Poisoning Questions as Kenyans Mourn the Untimely Death of Fidel Odinga

Fidel Odinga

Questions have been raised from various quarters as Raila Odinga’s family now mourn the death of Fidel Castro Odinga. Fidel died in his sleep Sunday morning after a night out with friends in various entertainment spots.

Fidel was last seen at Capital Club in the company of one Maureen Thiong’o whom he said to have dropped home. Fidel later went back to Capital Club where he stayed for a while before calling for Smart Fellas taxi services to drop him at his residence inside Bel Air County Homes gated community along Miotoni Road in Karen.

Some friends who had contact with Fidel include Fred Gumo’s son, Mayo Gumo, Robert Gichuru (son to Samuel Gichuru), Maureen Thiong’o and a Nelly Nyaga. Fidel met Tom Alila briefly at Rubicat before heading to Capital Club to meet Mabior Garang.

Fidel passed at Rubicat in the company of Billy Yaya who is a personal friend. Fidel passed through Rubicat where he found Atwoli, Hillary Alila, Jeremiah Owiti of UoN and Tom Alila waiting for Jirongo. He wanted to know if Tom Alila was also having some food poisoning issues like him. He said that they had lunch on Friday at Rubicat and he felt serious stomach discomfort. Tom Alila told him he didn’t have any stomach upsets.

Fidel then left for Capital Club where he picked Mabior Garang and headed to Sankara with him. At Sankara they just enjoyed themselves. Mayo Gumo joined them at Sankara.

The fact that Fidel complained of food poisoning raises issues. One of the persons he was with on Friday who is also his cousin, Andrew Ojwang’, died on Saturday morning.

The body of Fidel Odinga arrived at Lee Funeral home at 1pm this evening. A team of forensic investigators and pathologists had not left Fidel Odinga’s home by 7.30pm Sunday.

Mourners will converge at Raila’s home in Karen as Luo tradition dictates.
