A Nairobi businessman has died mysteriously after his wife allegedly refused to guarantee him a Sh. 2 billion loan.
According to a police report on the incident, Mr. Francis Kiambi Kiriro’s death was reported by his wife, Mary Waigwe Muthoni, who discovered his body in the wee hours of Monday morning before informing the police.
The couple had reportedly got into domestic differences after the wife allegedly declined to be her husband’s guarantor in securing a Sh. 2 billion loan he was seeking to open a business.
According to the report filed at Karen Police Station, the couple came home along Ndege Road in Karen on Sunday at around 1 am after meeting and drinking with a family advocate and his relative at a nearby restaurant.
The two reportedly went to sleep in different rooms, only for the 50-year-old business to be found dead with vomit on his bedside.
“They each spent the night in different rooms and the deceased never woke up since then, but could be heard snoring throughout the day and night and had vomited in his bedroom. It was until today at around 0600hrs when she went to check on the deceased and she found him lying dead on his bed with some vomits beside the bed,” reads the police report.
The police report indicates that a doctor who was called in from the Karen Hospital at around 6 am confirmed the death at around 9 am before the remains were moved to the Lee Funeral Home awaiting an autopsy.
Meanwhile, Interior Cabinet Secretary Prof. Kithure Kindiki has expressed his condolences following the death of businessman Francis Kiambi Kiriiro.
In his message of condolences, Prof. Kindiki mourned the deceased as “an iconic entrepreneur who not only built an impeccable business empire but also helped inspire a generation of business people from the region and nation.”
