Nairobi - ODM head of communications Philip Etale has lost his son.
Etale’s first born son Wendel died Saturday died after suffering a fall while playing.
" My first born son Wendel Charles Etale aged 12 woke up jovially and went to play with his friends in the neighbourhood. It is while they were playing that he slid and fell down hitting his head on the ground.
" He was rushed to hospital but went to be with the Lord," Etale announced.
Etale has been a loyal servant of the opposition party for a decade and the loss will be felt closely within the party ranks.
The loss will also reverberate in the party after a series of high profile losses in the last few months, with the loss of Homa Bay Senator Otieno Kajwang and party leader Raila Odinga's son Fidel.
Raila is currently in China on a business trip.
