Emerging from the eight hour exercise which took place in lee Funeral Home, Dr. Oduor noted that the process was slow because the doctors wanted to be thorough. “There are many tests that we need to conduct before knowing the cause of death and this may take eight to ten weeks to know,” said Dr. Odour.

The pathologists who included the British pathologist, Dr Ian Madison Calder are said to have agreed on the duration noting that the findings would take a little bit longer.

The medical representatives present were Mutula’s private doctor, Luke Musau of Nairobi Hospital, Dr Emily Rogena, and Dr. Ian Madison.

Senate Opposition Chief Whip Senator, Johnston Muthama told members of the press on Tuesday that the independent pathologist Dr Ian was given a temporary practicing license by the Kenya medical authorities that could expire in 10 months.

The family of the late Senator postponed the Postmortem slated on Monday afternoon and pushed it to Tuesday saying that they had invited an independent pathologist Dr Ian Madison from the UK to conduct the exercise.

The change came at a time when the Chief Government pathologist Dr. Johansen Odour was preparing to conduct the exercise on Monday afternoon for the government to establish what led to the death of the straight-talked senator who spoke his mind without fear or favour.

On April 27, Kenyans were shocked to be told that Mutula Kilonzo had died despite his colleagues saying he had not shown any signs of being sick.

Mutula who is Kenya’s immediate former Education Minister died at his Maanzoni home in Machakos County where according to his nephew he was found dead in his bedroom with foam in his mouth.

“He was found dead at home about two hours ago. We don’t know the cause of the death but he has not been sick. The body is still in the house,” said a family member.

Mutula Kilonzo is said to have hinted that he had a big revelation that was to make one of the local media houses banned if they published the information.

According to a report by Standard, which was the last media house to interview him, the Senator had told one of their journalists Roselyn Obala that he had a story that would surprise the country and that she has to wait until the right time to get the story.

Mutula will be laid to rest on Thursday May 9 at his farm in Machakos County. Three committees were formed to plan his burial including Senate committee where he served as Senator for Makueni County, National Assembly Committee where he served as both MP Mbooni constituency and Minister in various dockets and the Family committee led by his nephew Musyoki Kivindyo.
