Mr Mwenje, 55, died Thursday evening at Aga Khan University Hospital where he had been admitted since January.

The former MP was admitted to the hospital on January 16. His condition deteriorated and he was transferred taken to Intensive Care where he went into a coma on February 6.

The former MP died barely two months after his successor, Mr Melitus Mugabe Were, was gunned down outside his home at Woodley Estate.

Last week, the High Court allowed Mwenje’s two children, Ms Maureen Waithira and Eric Kamau Mwenje, to manage their ailing father’s property.The court however allowed the children limited access to the property.

Earlier in the hearing, the children had asked the court to bar journalists from covering the case in the interests of the patient.

The judge declined, saying Mr Mwenje was a public figure. He, however warned the media to exercise professionalism.

Mr Mwenje served as an assistant Minister for Service Sector in the Ministry of Co-operative Development and Marketing in the Narc government.

The former MP served five terms in the Kenyan Parliament. He was first elected in 1983 on a Kanu ticket and subsequently re-elected on the same ticket in 1988 but shifted to DP in the 1992 election and recaptured the seat during the 1997 election on the same ticket. He was again elected in 2002 on a Narc ticket.
