Doctors don’t know what killed Cholmondeley

21 August 2016, 08:24

Nairobi - Doctors have not been able to establish what killed the great grandson of Lord Delamere, Tom Cholmondeley.

His family has confirmed that autopsy reports have not been able to establish what killed the 48-year-old man.

Cholmondeley died on Wednesday afternoon at the MP Shah Hospital in Nairobi while receiving treatment.

He had been admitted Tuesday and underwent surgery for a hip replacement.

He died of Cardiac Arrest at 2.15 PM.

"He was admitted on Tuesday as a private patient — that is admitted by visiting doctors — in our facility and he underwent the surgery. He was recovering at the Intensive Care Unit when he developed cardiac arrest and died," a statement from MP Shah Chief Executive Anup Das said Wednesday.

Following his death, reports emerged that Maasai elders cursed him at the gravesite of Samson ole Sisina, whom he killed in 2005 for trespassing in his property.

The family of ole Sisina was seeking compensation before Cholmondeley’s burial, saying the curse will follow his family until their kin’s blood is compensated.

However, the Delamere family has urged the public to stop speculating Cholmondeley’s death.

According to Citizen Digital, the family is conducting more tests to establish the cause of his death.
