Kenyans turn up in numbers for Fidel body viewing

07 January 2015, 16:46 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Mourners gathered at the Lee funeral home in Nairobi to view the body of the late Fidel Odinga amidst the search for the real reason he died.

Mourners gathered at the funeral home from as early as 7 AM to view the body of the exuberant Fidel and many wept after they got a glimpse of the body.

Fidel died under mysterious circumstances Sunday at his Karen home, after falling to sleep and failing to wake up.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, his widow Getaw and other leaders were also present at the body viewing.

Members of the public who availed themselves to view the late Fidel's body said that they were paying the last respects to a man they knew would one day galvanize Kenya.

" I know him as a person who is not afraid to meet people, be happy and exchange ideas. The country needs such people and it is sad that he has died, John Orode, a Nairobi dentist told News24.

For Nancy Gitu, her reason for coming to view the body was to condole with his dad Raila, who he says is a person of high integrity and purpose.

" Raila has done so much and sacrificed his life so we can get the freedoms we have in this present day Kenya and I thus come here to mourn with him, the mother of three said.

Andrew Mutai says he did not meet Fidel on a personal note but that he knew he had done great things for rugby, a sport he follows alot.

" He has tried his best to improve the state of the game of rugby in Kenya and that touches me, which, which makes it a sad time for Kenya, he said.

Fidel will be buried Saturday at his father's Bondo home.

It is yet to be known the exact cause of his death as a preliminary autopsy failed to yield anything of note.
