Kalembe Ndile is dead

NAIROBI, Kenya May 30 – Former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile is dead. He was aged 57.

Kalembe died at a Nairobi Hospital on Saturday night, according to a close family member.

His family said he died from liver-related complications.

“He was discharged from hospital two weeks ago, but his health deteriorated later and he was taken back to hospital. He has passed on,” his brother Sam Ndile said.

Kalembe served as an Assistant Minister in the administration of former President Mwai Kibaki and will be remembered for his fiery yet humorous statements and attacks on fellow politicians.

His last public statement was a month ago when he addressed a press conference on various local political issues.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy William Ruto, former Prime Minister Rail Odinga, party leaders Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Musalia Mudavadi (Amani) were among leaders who sent condolences to the family.
