The late David Mwenje
News just in is that former Embakasi legislator David Mwenje is dead.
Mwenje has been in hospital in the Intensive Care unit since early this year.
Signs that all was not well started to emerge when his children went to court to try and gain access to his bank accounts to pay his hospital bills and other mounting bills. Other creditors moved to court soon after.
It is not clear what exactly the former MP died from although there have been whispers for a long time now that he was HIV positive.
The late Mwenje once admitted involvement with the dreaded Jeshi La Mzee or Jeshi la Embakasi, a private army he created and used to harass his political enemies.
Mwenje who was fairly short in stature, will be remembered as one of the most violent politicians to hold a parliamentary seat within Nairobi. In one incident in January 2001 he physically fought in parliament with fellow MP Otieno Kajwang and was badly bitten in the back by Kajwang.
Interestingly Mwenje's name had also come up in a list of possible suspects behind the death of the slain Embakasi MP who won the seat from him, Melitus Were. He was however never questioned by police over the matter.
More details to follow later.
