Shabana FC chairman Dr Yabesh Nyandoro Kambi who suddenly passed away on Friday did not die at his office as it has been published in the media, sauce.co.ke can reveal.
Additionally he may not have died as a result of a sudden illness as it has been claimed. His death is now part of a complex investigation by the police in Kitengela after it was established that he died in a hotel room.
Before his demise, Kambi or ‘Daktari’ as he was popularly known was Shabana FC chairperson after being elected unopposed as the club chair in 2021, succeeding Jared Omboni Nevaton.
He was also a lawyer and a politician, having vied in the 2017 and 2022 General Elections for the Borabu constituency parliamentary seat.
The club’s president Jared Nevaton told Nation.Africa yesterday that Kambi was like a brother to him.
“We have always been very close friends. We have always consulted on the running of Shabana since 2013. I could not believe that I was viewing his body last night,” Naviton said.
“I wish to convey my sincere condolences to the family at this challenging time. We have sincerely lost a friend, a brother and a great leader.”
His death has has however been shroud in secrecy with his family claiming that he died at his office in order to control the narrative. Away from the media cameras however, the family is assisting detectives at the Kitengela Police Station to find out what killed their kin. The matter was reported using OB number 10/02/2023.
Reliable police sources have divulged to sauce.co.ke that the lawyer collapsed at the Esidai Hotel where he had booked a room on Friday evening. He started complaining of feeling pain as he was waiting for an unknown guest. He was rushed to a nearby clinic for first aid where he was pronounced dead.
Officers from the Kitengela Police Station who were called to the clinic to begin investigations found two ‘Power Sex’ tablets in his pockets. Yesterday the police traced the chemist where the lawyer bought the tablets and they were told that the lawyer had been their regular client for the last two years.
On Friday, the lawyer bought blood pressure tablets and four ‘Power Sex’ tablets from the same shop a few hours before he collapsed and died. Investigators suspect he swallowed two pills either before going to the hotel or while at the facility.
The answer to this question will be answered on Monday when an autopsy on the lawyers body is conducted at the Lee Funeral home. Meanwhile the woman who was supposed to meet the lawyer on the day he died has been identified as one of his secretaries.
But as investigations continue over Dr Kambi’s sudden death, tributes are pouring in with many praising him for being a visionary leader. Former Football Kenya Federation Chairman Sam Nyamweya who is current Shabana Patron has said the deceased was intelligent person who assisted the community including Shabana with all his ability.
“I received the news with a Shock. Daktari was a nice person, and very hard working. He has assisted Shabana to a level where it is now and I am urging the community and friends to be with the family in this sorrow moments,” said Nyamweya.
“We will form a strong burial committee to give him a befitting sent off. On behalf of my family, I convey my sincere condolence to the family and friend of Dr. Kambi Nyandoro and may our good Lord rest his soul in eternal peace,” said the former FKF chair.
