Stop speculations on Kamangu’s death-medic
Fri, Oct 10, 2008
Members of the public have been asked to stop speculations about the possible causes of James Kamangu Ndimu’s death and wait for postmortem results.
Kiambu District Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr. Patrick Amoth said it was suspected that Kamangu might have succumbed to liver failure.
Dr Amoth said Kamangu also complained of acute chest pains when he sought medical attention at the district hospital before being referred to Kenyatta National Hospital on Tuesday.
Immediately after his death, Kamangu’s family and admirers at his Gachie rural home raised suspicions that he could have been poisoned and called on the government to institute a probe on his death.
Kamangu’s younger brother David Gachie and sister Jane Nyanjega claimed that he had no history of ill health emphasizing that prior to his death, he was in good health ane was seen working on his farm.
However his wife Beatrice Nduta confirmed that Kamangu was a heavy drinker supporting the medics’ initial opinion that he could have been killed by alcohol related complications.
Nduta said that on Tuesday night her husband returned home drunk and declined to eat as he used to do whenever drunk.
Dr. Amoth confirmed that Kamangu had first visited Kihara health centre and was referred to Kiambu district hospital as he was vomiting blood and four hours later he was referred to Kenyatta hospital when his condition worsened.
On Thursday angry Kiambu residents attributed Kamang’us death to lack of facilities in the hospital and laxity by senior medical personnel.
“What is the need of having a district hospital which cannot rescue a dying man”, questioned Jane Nyambura.
Kamangu came to the limelight when he successfully blocked the marriage between flamboyant televangelist Margaret Wanjiru and her South African fiancé Rev. Samuel Matjeke two years ago maintaining that Wanjiru was his wife.
Kamangu gained instant stardom after he claimed to have married the now MP for Starehe Constituency in Nairobi and Housing Assistant Minister through a customary marriage in 1978 and that he was the father of her two sons.
However Wanjiru and her sons publicly denied Kamangu during a service at her Jesus is Alive Ministry Church.
