Kitui West Member of Parliament Francis Nyenze is dead.

Nyenze  a former minority leader in the National Assembly died at a Nairobi hospital on Wednesday.

His body has since been moved to the Lee Funeral Home.

During the swearing in ceremony in August, an ill looking Nyenze carried an oxygen tank into the chambers for his oath.

Dragging the tank behind him, with the tubes snaking up his back, the former minority leader struggled to put on a brave face to participate in the critical exercise with his colleagues elected on August 8.

“How are you are friends…mimi pia nimefika (I’ve also made it) for the swearing-in,” he greeted journalists as quoted by Nation.
