Former ODM South-Mugirango parliamentary aspirant Ibrahim Ochoi is dead - three months after staging an ambitious bid for the seat.
Ochoi finished third in the June by-elections behind Manson Nyamweya (Ford People) and Omingo Magara (PDM).
" I find this hard to believe and to accept. As a party, the Orange Democratic Movement has lost a politician of great promise. The people of South Mugirango and the country have equally lost a man who held a lot of promise for our people," Prime Minister Raila Odinga said in statement.
