On behalf of myself and the people of Machakos, I pass my condolence to the family of our beloved Senator Boniface Kabaka who has gone to be with the Lord due to the effects of a stroke arising from a blood clot that has been bothering him for a while.

Senator Kabaka collapsed on Friday in the company of a female friend identified as Esther Muli, a Kitui-based teacher at an apartment in Kilimani.

Muli who was consequently arrested and presented in court denied conspiracy to harm the Senator.
