Fidel Odinga's death remains a mystery

07 January 2015, 10:02

Nairobi - Pathologists are expected to conduct more laboratory tests on the body of Fidel Odinga after preliminary autopsy failed to reveal the cause of his death.

The autopsy was conducted Tuesday at Lee Funeral Home, and lasted for close to 10 hours under the watch of Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor, Senator James Orengo and the deceased’s uncle Oburu Odinga, The Standard reported.

Government pathologist Dorothy Njeru who led the team that conducted the autopsy said they had agreed to proceed to laboratory examination and that they would begin right away.
