How did Moody Awori die ? What was his Cause Of death

The passing of former Vice President Moody Awori has been met with shock and sadness. Uncle Moody, as he was adoringly known to his family, friends, and constituents alike, had begun his career in politics in 1982 when he won the Funyula constituency seat.

He went on to be appointed as Vice President in 2003 following the untimely passing of Kijana Wamalwa before losing 2007 elections to Paul Otwoma.

At the time of writing, his cause of death remains unknown but all that can be said is that we lost a beloved Kenyan hero upon his leaving us at the age 94 May he rest in peace.
